The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street Theme: Trust Your Friends Always
I don't understand I swear
It's Bob Weaver's house no it's Don Martains' place
Thoughts can be a powerful enemy against your friends
In "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street" by Rod Serling, one of the main themes is Trust your friends always. One piece of evidence to support the theme is when Les Goodman says “I don’t understand I swear” This is a strong piece of evidence because his FRIENDS are ganging up on him accusing him that he’s the monster. The second piece of evidence is when Man 1 and Woman 1 are arguing about weather or not it was Bob Weaver’s house or Don Martins’ place Which is evidence because they are second guessing their FRIENDS that they’ve known for a long time. The third piece of evidence is when the Narrator is telling us “Thoughts can be a powerful enemy against your friends” which is evidence because they are clearly stating that people’s thoughts are a very powerful enemy. All in all this evedence all clearly states that you need to trust you FRIENDS always.
Evidence 1: Les Goodman "I don' understand I swear" This is in front of Les' house I belive this is a piece of evedence because his friends are acuseing him of something he didn't do
Evedence 2: Man 1 & Woman 1 "It's Bob Weavers House No it's Don Martains' place" They are standing near Bob and Don's houses There thoughts are makeing them make acusations agenst their friends
Evedence 3: Narroator "Thoughts can be a powerful enemy agenst your friends" The Narrorator exprresses this at the end of the teleplay. I use this as a piece of evedence because the characters thoughts are makeing them have second thoughts
