What would you change in this scene?

To improve the moment.

50 years ago at Fairchild AFB

“He said it was making a noise.”

Fifty years ago on “The Twilight Zone”

An episode called “Young Man's Fancy” first aired on May 11, 1962.

Intending to stay for just a minute, a just-married couple stop by the groom's vacant childhood home after the wedding. He discovers that he cannot leave.

Some regarded this as one of the five most annoying TZ episodes.  Here a longtime “perennial bachelor” has a chance to head out on a honeymoon with his attractive bride and he can't cut his ties to the past.

Somebody slap the guy. Or call a lawyer for her.

Fifty years ago on “The Twilight Zone”

“Hocus-Pocus and Frisby” first aired on April 13, 1962. Starring Andy Devine (you'd recognize his voice), it's the story of a teller of tall tales who gets abducted by aliens. Then, when he returns, no one will believe his account of what happened.

The lesson? Don't leave home without your harmonica.

How many people around here can…

…say they were working in the lab late one night?
