Pretty good, though I think most hit and run drivers are much more concerned about getting caught than feeling guilty for what they've done.

Gerald Simms (Harry Townes) is having an affair with Frances Hiller (Randy Stuart). They meet in dark, out of the way places and they both are worried about getting caught. One night, after seeing each other, they are in the car headed home when Gerald accidentally hits and kills a young man. Instead of contacting the police, weaselly Gerald insists he and Frances pretend it never happened--and they agree not to see each other for a year. A year passes and although Gerald seems pretty comfortable with his lies, something strange begins happening. He begins to hear the voice of the dying young man calling out for help from his dictaphone machine. Later, when he plays it for Frances, she, too, hears the voice. What the voice compels them to do, you can hear for yourself.

This is an interesting episode. I also loved how as the pair were meeting, the narrator popped back into the story and walked around them--a very strange and striking scene. Well worth seeing.
