Storyline

Horace Ford is a toy designer. He is enthusiastic about what he does and has fond memories of the games he played as a child. Lately, he is forever talking about his childhood, obssessing in fact, over those little childhood moments that brought him great joy. His mother however doesn't quite remember their time living on Randolph St. as such a great time in their lives. He goes to visit his old neighborhood but when he gets there, he seems to have stepped back in time. He returns to the street several times and the scene repeats itself over and over. He realizes his childhood wasn't the wonderful time he remembered. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

Narrator: [Opening Narration] Mr. Horace Ford, who has a preoccupation with another time, a time of childhood, a time of growing up, a time of street game, stickball and hide-'n-go-seek.

But in a moment or two, he'll discover that mechanical toys and memoires and daydreaming and wishful thinking and all manner of odd and special events can lead into a special ...

Get this guy some prozac
8 May 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, United States) – See all my reviews

For me, this episode doesn't work. Pat Hingle's characterization is immediately over-the-top, annoying, even scary, instead of childlike and charming. His character should garner your sympathy, but instead, you wonder why his employer doesn't call security and have him escorted out of the building. Nan Martin is completely miscast as his wife -- their relationship is not believable at all. In fact, it's rather unbelievable that Horace would be able to find any wife, given his frightening behavior, let alone a wife that seems like a high-society gal rather than a homemaker. The mother is such a strange character as well -- I don't understand the point of even having her there. I guess this was supposed to be the dark side of "Kick the Can," and it could have worked... but it just doesn't.
