There is a knocking at the door. Mrs. White has started running for the door looking for Herbert who had died in an accident at work. Mr. White is afraid of what is waiting for her at the door and rushes to get the monkeys paw.
Mr white, after running past his wife, runs downstairs. He finds the Monkeys paw. After locating the monkeys paw he begins to make his final wish.
His final wish is for everything to go back to normal. He wishes this because he is afraid of Herbert. He also does this because the monkey's paw has began to take a turn on his family's life.
