Twilight Zone Third Season

"This is a jungle, a monument built by nature honoring disuse, commemorating a few years of nature being left to its own devices. But it's another kind of jungle, the kind that comes in the aftermath of man's battles against himself. Hardly an important battle, not a Gettysburg or a Marne or an Iwo Jima. More like one insignificant corner patch in the crazy quilt of of combat. But it was enough to end the existence of this little city. It's been five years since a human being walked these streets. This is the first day of the sixth year - as man used to measure time. The time: perhaps a hundred years from now. Or sooner. Or perhaps it's already happened two million years ago. The Place? The signposts are in English so that we may read them more easily, but the place - is the Twilight Zone."

A woman wearing a uniform encounters a man dressed in the enemy's uniform. She is very distrustful of him. A while later she admires a dress in a shop window. The man removes it and gives it to her. She changes in an old recruiting office. Seeing the posters reminds her of the war, and she rushes out and fires several rounds at the man. The next day he returns in civilian clothes and she is wearing the dress. She joins him and they walk off together.

"This has been a love story, about two lonely people who found each other... in the Twilight Zone."
