On a rainy day, office manager Oliver Pope is driving home when he hits a newspaper boy with his car and promptly flees the scene. He puts the car in his garage but when his wife sees the lights flashing, she thinks they have an intruder. In fact, its just the car acting up. In the middle of the night, his car horn honks and when his wife takes it out the next day, it stops at the exact corner where the accident occurred. When his competitor at the office, Pete Radcliff, is arrested he thinks he's home free. It's apparent however that the car is going to continue acting up until Pope makes things right.Written by

All persons attempting to conceal criminal acts involving their cars are hereby warned: check first to see that underneath that chrome there does not lie a conscience, especially if you're driving along a rain-soaked highway in the Twilight Zone.

Edward Andrews stars as Oliver Pope, an office manager on his way home on a rainy early evening who accidentally hits a newspaper boy, but instead of calling the police, panics and flees back home, where it seems that his car will not leave him alone, as its headlights will come on by themselves, then the radio starts blaring at night. Oliver becomes alarmed by this, and plans to have the car fixed, but it comes home by itself! When a co-worker(played by Kevin Hagen) is mistakenly arrested for the crime, the car escalates the pressure on Pope by following him around, then nearly hitting him in the road... Andrews is first-rate here, the F/X on the car are also good, and episode(while obvious) still has an effective style and score that make it memorable.
