"You've seen them. Little towns, tucked away far from the main roads. You've seen them, but have you thought about them? What do people in these places do? Why do they stay? Philip Redfield never thought about them. If his dog hadn't gone after that cat, he would have driven through Peaceful Valley and put it out of his mind forever. But he can't do that now, because whether he knows it or not his friend's shortcut has led them right into the capital of the Twilight Zone."
A man, Philip Redfield, stops for gas in a small town. He learns that the inhabitants are in possession of several "devices" that can move matter, and reverse time, among other things. He tries to escape, but runs into a force field protecting the city. Back in town a device is aimed at him, and suddenly he is back in his car with no memory of the town."You've seen them. Little towns, tucked away far from the main roads. You've seen them, but have you thought about them? Have you wondered what the people do in such places, why they stay? Philip Redfield thinks about them now and he wonders, but only very late at night, when he's between wakefulness and sleep - in the Twilight Zone."
