Theme:Don't Jump To Conclusions
This scene was when Charlie shot Pete Van Horn.
"You killed him, Charlie. You shot him dead!"
"It's Pete Van Horn."
"What about it, Charlie? How come you're the only one with lights now?"

"Charlie... Charlie... the lights just went on in your house. Why did the lights go on?"
In the story, The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street by Rod Serling, I believe that the story has so many themes, but the main theme is don't jump to conclusions, because there are so much evidence in the story that tells me why that's the theme. First, in the story when Les Goodman's car started all by itself and when everyone on Maple Street was trying to jump to conclusion by blaming Les for being the monster. Man one said, "He got the car started somehow. He got his car started!" Don said, " Maybe you better tell us. Nothing's working on this street. Nothing. No lights, no power, no radio. Nothing except one car-yours!" In both speeches, they tell me that Don and Man one were both trying to jump to a conclusion by saying Goodman is the monster. Secondly, in the story when Charlie shot Pete Van Horn on accident, because he couldn't tell who the shadow was in the dark and that was when Woman one said, "You killed him, Charlie. You Shot him dead!" When Woman one said that, it supported the main theme, because she was rushing to get down to conclusion by saying that Charlie was a monster. Lastly, in the story when Charlie's living room lights came on Goodman said, "what about it Charlie? How come you're the only on with lights now?," and when Woman one said, "Charlie... Charlie... the lights just went on in your house. Why did the lights go on?" When Goodman and Woman one said those things, that also supports the main theme, because they are both telling me that Charlie is still the monster and that he is in charge of all this chaos that's going on. Comparing to all the close themes, don't jump to conclusion one is the best, because it fits in most of the incidents of the story.
