[Last line of "To See the Invisible Man"]
Narrator: A small footnote found in the court records of some parallel world. The name of Mitchell Chaplin, who served his sentence of invisibility and learned his lesson well. Too well. This time, however, he will wear his invisibility like a shield of glory. A shield forged in the very heart... of the Twilight Zone.

A night surprise/Social Invisibility/A fairy train trip to a downtrodden life!
9 February 2008 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Episode 16 of "The New Twilight Zone" on CBS from the 1985 and 1986 season featured three segments "The Elevator", "To See the Invisible Man", and "Tooth and Consequences".

"The Elevator" is a neat spooky little tale about two brothers who decide one night to go to their father's unattended lab with plans to steal his growth serum only a big surprise is in store at the end! "To See the Invisible Man" a man Mitchell Chaplin is sentenced to punishment of many years of being invisible. The reason being was his cold attitude to society it's now like no one notices him a lesson that he learns is he wants another shot to be good in life. Really a neat tale and concept that has a good moral story that teaches life's little lesson of kindness.

"Tooth and Consequences" has a lonely and depressed dentist who's burned out and wanting a new start of life especially with love and romance. Never fear enter the tooth fairy to make all his wishes come true with demanding love, and a room full of patients. Only be careful what you wish for and don't bite off more than you can chew! As happiness and contentment may be found on a train ride to toothless poverty. Really best segment of the episode.
