  • NO,Tommy what a horrible thing to say ,shut your trap 
  • Maybe there is a family of monsters that don't want us to leave 
  • Here we see a view of the small neighborhood of Maple Street. We see the residents as they converse and we see a little boy and his friend. the small neighborhood is soon thrown into chaos as we see a meteor go by. All attention is turned to it as we hear a loud roar and we see a very bright light. Soon following everything stops working phones,stoves,even portable radios.
  • Oh no,it is the monster shoot it down ahhhhhhhh
  • Ouch Charlie THAT HURT
  • His house lights just went on 
  • Soon we see Pete VanHorn a man with a blonde hair and a mustache. He decides to see if the neighboring street has power. This is called Floral Street. We watch as he walks away into the darkening sky. Pete VanHorn is soon forgotten about which posses a serious problem.

  • Soon we see two men named Steve and Charlie who will go to town.Our attention soon turns to a fourteen year old boy named Tommy. He posses the question that there could be monsters that don't want anyone to leave.He is soon reprimanded by his mother whom he ignores. He goes on to say that there is a family of aliens living among them.
  • Do you understand the procedure? We will go from Maple Street to Maple Street and let them destroy themselves. The fear of man is worse than bombs and guns it will cause them to act irrationally and destroy everthing.
  • We soon hear echoing footsteps as they walk down the street. The attention turns from Tommy onto the oncoming footsteps. All is silent as the crowd stands watching in horror. The silence is broken by something wising through the air. It hits the monster who falls to the ground. Soon they realize it was no monster is was Pete VanHorn.  
  • Soon as if all at once Les Goodman's car starts. Soon following house lights go on and then their lights go off and others go on. Then someones mower starts. The house lights go off and another goes on.The small quiet little neighborhood is soon plunged into utter destruction and chaos. 
  • Get me a hammer,get me a gun,destroy it 
  • We soon fade away from the scene of Maple Street and we see two aliens safe in their space ship watching the horrors unfold before them. By their conversation we can only assume that they were in the meteor and caused all the destruction. But, they did not make everyone turn against everyone else they simply turned off things and watched as the fear took over and watched as the people killed each other. The sadness is these things can never be confined to one t.v show these things will travel outside of The Twilight Zone
