After drinking too much at a party, Bob and Millie Frazer awaken in a strange bed, in a strange house in a strange town. They're still dressed in the clothes they wore to the party but their memories are fuzzy. Bob was too drunk to drive so Millie was behind the wheel and she vaguely remembers a shadow falling over them. They soon realize that everything in the town is fake. The telephone in the house isn't wired; the drawers and cupboards in the kitchen are only a facade; even the trees are fake. The town is deserted and Millie begins to wonder if they're dead. They keep hearing a child laughing and begin a search. They're not prepared for what they encounter. Written by garykmcd

[closing narration]
Narrator: The moral of what you've just seen is clear. If you drink, don't drive. And if your wife has had a couple, she shouldn't drive either. You might both just wake up with a whale of a headache in a deserted village in the Twilight Zone.

Drunk couple is caught in Centerville
1 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is very representative of the entire run of The Twilight Zone series in many ways: the creepy sounds, misplaced reality, ignorant participants, all the elements that make it a classic Zone story. This is from the days when imagination and writing were primary and props and special effects were secondary or non-existent. The characters really had to tell the story, even pad it now and then, as in this story, because the story itself could've been done in half the time (you'll see what I mean when you watch it). Over all it may not be the BEST episode in the series, but a very memorable, none the less. I saw this episode some 40+ years ago. It is still the ONE episode that I think of when I see or hear mention of The Twilight Zone.
