Don and Pat Carter are on their honeymoon when their car breaks down in the small town of Ridgeview, Ohio. They have a few hours to spare while their car is being repaired and spend time in the diner. There they find a fortune-telling machine, a game where you can ask a question and for a penny will spit out an innocuous answer. When the machine apparently begins to predict events - Don's promotion at work, a near accident on the street outside - a superstitious Don becomes infatuated with the device threatening his marriage and his future with Pat.Written by
While driving on honeymoon trip through Ohio, the newlywed Don and Pat Carter have to stop in Ridgeview since their gas pump is broken. The mechanic asks for a few hours to repair the car and Don and Pat go to a diner to have lunch. On the table, there is a fortune-telling machine "mystic seer" and Don starts questioning the machine about their future. When the machine apparently respond accurate replies, the superstitious Don becomes addicted to ask about their future threatening his marriage.
"Nick of Time" is an intriguing episode of "The Twilight Zone". Don´s interpretation to the answers of the mystic seer indicates that the machine provides accurate answer. Fortunately for him his wife is wiser and asks him to let them make their future. My vote is eight.
Title (Brazil): "Na Hora H" ("In the Right Time")
