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

I recognized the park where Ollie crashed into the kid as Carlson Park in Culver city, a park I frequently run through on my long Saturday runs. Very nice to see those homes, probably brand new at the time,still there. The picnic area and bathrooms look almost the same. There is no phone booth anymore, since we all use cell phones now. My wife and I were fortunate enough to meet Mr. Earl Hamner last October at the Twilight Zone 50th anniversary reunion in Burbank, CA. He asked where we were from and when I told him we were from Culver City, he remembered Rod Serling doing his show there from MGM studios (now Sony Studios).
