  • He got the car started somehow. He got his car started!
  • I don't understand. I swear...I don't understand. What's happening? 
  • It is a late afternoon on Maple Street, U.S.A. A meteor passes overhead, then suddenly, all of the power and electricity shut off.
  • Rising Acton
  • But... but I didn't know who he was. I certainly didn't know who he was.
  • You killed him, Charlie. You shot him dead! 
  • Tommy tells the neighborhood a story about aliens from space. They believe his story and people start to accuse each other of being aliens.
  • Climax
  • Charlie has to be the one.
  • Where's that kid- Let's get him. 
  • Les Goodman's the one. His car started! Let's wreck it. 
  • Their world is full of Maple Streets. And we'll go from one to the other and let them destroy themselves. One to the other...one to the other...one to the other-- 
  • First, Mr. Goodman's car mysteriously starts on its own and he is accused of being the alien. Then, Steve is accused of being the alien because of a ham radio set he was working on in his basement.
  • Resolution
  • Earlier, Pete Van Horn had gone to the next block to see if their power was out too. When he returned, Charlie thought he was the monster because of the dark and killed him. 
  • What about Steve's radio?
  • Everyone starts going crazy and accusing one another of being the monster. They let their fear, rather than reason take over
  • In the end, the aliens reveal their plans about taking over Earth, one neighborhood at a time by watching the humans turn against each other.
