When Marshall discovers that Eerie doesn't have daylight savings time, he's determined not to miss out on the extra hour and sets his watch back anyway. But the next day, everyone in Eerie has disappeared, except for some creepy garbage collectors and a strange milkman who explains that messing with time has transported Marshall to a parallel dimension. Before Marshall can get back to his own time, he must rescue a girl who got trapped in the lost hour the year before.

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
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.
Nice try, Spock, but logically speaking, Indiana doesn't go on Daylight Savings Time.
What d'ya mean?
Everyone has to set their watches back. Even some place as weird as Eerie. It's the law. I want my hour!
We've been Eerified again.
