Evidence 1:"He always was an oddball. Him and his whole family. Real oddball. "
He is odd.
Evidence 2: "You killed him, Charlie. You shot him dead!"
Evidence 3:"With few variations. They pick the most dangerous enemy they can find...and it's themselves. And all we need do is sit back...and watch."
The theme of "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street" is mankind is its own worst enemy. The residents of Maple Street had their light and their cars turning off and chaos began to abrupt. Charlie began to blame Les Goodman for being the monster because he was a little different then the other residents. As stated in the script, " He was always an oddball. Him and his whole family. Real oddball". The woman was speaking to the residents and especially Les Goodman. She was really trying to say that Les is very weird and he is most likely the monster. "You killed him Charlie. You shot him dead!" stated a resident because Charlie shot a neighbor because he was not thinking before they were acting. The residents of Maple street were blaming themselves for the situation and jumping to conclusions when it really wasn't them. The real monsters only had to turn off a couple of light and turn some things off and the residents would do all of the recking "With few variations. They pick the most dangerous enemy they can find...and it's themselves. And all we need do is sit back...and watch" as the monsters said they did not have to do all of the hard work the humans take it into their own hands and do all of the damage.
