On a rainy day, office manager Oliver Pope is driving home when he hits a newspaper boy with his car and promptly flees the scene. He puts the car in his garage but when his wife sees the lights flashing, she thinks they have an intruder. In fact, its just the car acting up. In the middle of the night, his car horn honks and when his wife takes it out the next day, it stops at the exact corner where the accident occurred. When his competitor at the office, Pete Radcliff, is arrested he thinks he's home free. It's apparent however that the car is going to continue acting up until Pope makes things right. Written by

All persons attempting to conceal criminal acts involving their cars are hereby warned: check first to see that underneath that chrome there does not lie a conscience, especially if you're driving along a rain-soaked highway in the Twilight Zone.

This is an extremely memorable episode. Edward Andrews is driving distractedly on a rainy day and runs down a boy on a bike. The boy is badly injured and Andrews runs when he sees no one around. He goes home, filled with guilt and paranoia. He is worried about a man who he thinks is after his job. At this point, his car begins to act out. At first it flashes headlights. Then it's the horn. Then the radio. No matter what Andrews does, the car continues to act. The wife is stuck at the crime scene as she attempts to run errands. The car simply takes her there. There is a great scene as Andrews walks to work and the car follows him. When he decreases his speed, the car slows down and vice versa. Of course, the conclusion is inevitable. The car is going to have justice.
