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
The abandoned town Mr. and Mrs. Frazer find themselves in is the same location used for "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street". See more »

Bob and Millie Frazier, average young New Yorkers who attended a party in the country last night and on the way home took a detour. Most of us on waking in the morning know exactly where we are; the rooster or the alarm clock brings us out of sleep into the familiar sights, sounds, aromas of home and the comfort of a routine day ahead. Not so with our young friends. This will be a day like none they've ever spent - and they'll spend it in the Twilight Zone.

Very Entertaining Twilight Zone episode (Last season).
I've always been a fan of Barry Nelson since his appearance in SHADOW OF THE THIN MAN (MGM 1941). As a matter of fact I ran into him in downtown San Francisco many years ago. Quite the gentleman. This episode is engrossing. You scratch your head and wonder along with them "What the heck goes?" They wander about in a town where everything is phony (I know what you're thinking- they must be in Hollywood or Southern California, not so). When the couple enter a kitchen and try to open the drawers and cabinets everything is fake! Imagine the horror if YOU awoke and found yourself in a house where everything was fake, just a bunch of props. SHEER TERROR!!! The reason I enjoy this segment is that it pulls you in and you have to stay tuned to the very end for the punch line. And Rod Serling's commentary borders on the comic. The moral is "Don't drink and drive, or else you may end up like Barry Nelson and his wife! No more drinking binges for them (or me)!
