Marshall changes his watch for Daylight Saving Time, then finds the next morning that Eerie is deserted. As he walks out his front door, he stands on the sidewalk while the camera gives a wide shot from above showing the sidewalk and street empty. Marshall turns to walk down the street looking for people, and suddenly he's in a neighborhood with no sidewalks nor curbs, very different from where his house sits. See more »


Marshall Teller: Tonight's the night we set our watches back one hour for Daylight Savings Time. You know, Spring Forward, Fall Back, and all that. So technically speaking, it's actually an hour earlier. Therefore the only logical conclusion is we get to stay up an extra hour.
Edgar Teller: Nice try, Spock, but logically speaking, Indiana doesn't go on Daylight Savings Time.
Simon Holmes: What d'ya mean?
Marshall Teller: Everyone has to set their watches back. Even some place as weird as Eerie. It's the law. I want my hour!
Simon Holmes: We've been Eerified again.
