Quotes

Narrator: [narration] Some push for what they need; some push for what they want. Some people, like Peter Jay Novins, just push. If they do it hard enough, and long enough, something might just push back... from the Twilight Zone.

"A Little Peace and Quiet" makes you think--HARD.
23 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of the most thought-provoking episodes of ANY show that I have ever seen, and I spent a long time considering what I would do in her place. I decided that while there was no way to save everyone, I could at least save my family. Since no vehicles would work since they are frozen, I'd get a bicycle and hook up a small flatbed trailer. Then I would load my family members and supplies on it and start peddling to a place that was far enough away from any "ground zero's" that we had the best chance of surviving in. Once all my preparations were in place, THEN I'd stop the freeze. It might take a while to do all this, but hey, time is frozen so what the hay?

Just my $.02, anyway.
