Rod Serling's seminal anthology series focused on ordinary folks who suddenly found themselves in extraordinary, usually supernatural, situations. The stories would typically end with an ironic twist that would see the guilty punished.

Though smiling from behind the opening production slate, (Alexandra Moltke's) Vicki is in a frightened mood. David has locked her up in a room in the closed off West Wing of Collinwood.

Drunk at the Blue Whale, Burke (Mitchell Ryan) orders another drink from "Andy" (Bob O'Connell) when Sam walks in - from a small portion of filmed footage. Possibly due to the stormy night, the only other customer is lonely Walter Arnold, sitting at the bar. Sam joins Burke and they sing a few rounds of "(What Shall We Do with the) Drunken Sailor?" which was a favorite song of Bill Malloy.
