An alien race is dying, but Earth can save them - by depositing saved time in their bank. Natalie loves that she can get her time back with interest, adding years to her life, while the aliens manipulate the stored hours to save their advanced civilization. She hates to waste a minute anyway, but her husband enjoys his time so much, he's not eligible to be a depositor. Written by David Stevens

I Hope I Have Time to Finish This

This is more Twilight Zone like than most of these episodes. The fact that aliens are at the center of it makes it a "Tale of Tomorrow." Sylvia Sydney's character is so unlikeable. She harasses her husband endlessly and seems to get no enjoyment out of life. He is patient, but when she has his dog put in the pound, that seems to be the last straw. The story is told in flashback. A letter from a new "bank" has arrived and it piques the interest of the woman. When she goes to check things out, she is told that she can bank unused time to be tacked on at the end of her life. She signs papers but doesn't read the fine print. Of course, the aliens have set things up for themselves. They are able to use this time to allow the scientists on their planet to find a solution for a coming holocaust. As with most of these episodes, the chickens come home to roost. It was intriguing.
