One day, one of the employees where Herbert worked showed up t o the White's house to tell them that they're son has passed away. The White's started to cry in depression. But the man gave Mr. & Mrs. White a envelope containing a compensation of $200 from Herbert's death.
I wish for Hebert to go away!
Where's our son?!
One night, right before the White's were about to go to bed, Mrs. White realized that they still have 2 more wishes with the monkey's paw. So, she told Mr. White to wish for they're son back. Mr. White didn't want to but Mr. White made him.
Around midnight, the Whites woke up because they heard a knocking at their door. They didn't know who it was but Mrs. White thought it was Herbert at the door. Meanwhile, Mr. White just didn't know what was going on at the time and he did not know what to do.
Just then, Mr. white realized that it was Herbert at the door. So, he Ran for the monkey's paw and wished his final wish. His last and final wish was for everything to go back to normal after Herbert died.
