While making a cross-country motor trip, Nan (Inger Stevens) is terrified by the repeated appearances of a shabby-looking hitchhiker (Leonard Strong) who shows up at every turn and who seems to be beckoning her to. . .what?

Classic line: "I believe you're going my way?"

That is the one, and the father, girl and dog would have been stuck in between dimensions within seconds if the professor had not pulled the three of them back...great TV! ...Sherry :)))

I remember that one too, Sherry. I think she went under the bed to find her dog and then wound up in another dimension, if we're talking about the same episode. That one has stuck with me all my life!

I remember barely being able to breathe when the little girl got lost in the wall of the house...I think I was about 12...because of the reruns, I'm pretty sure I've seen them all now...quite brilliant writing... Sherry :)))

Max, I filled my first car, a 1958 Impala, with gas at 27.9¢ per gallon. And at the time a carton of Camel cigarettes cost a factor of 10 more at $2.79! And when I got home I watched The Twilight Zone avidly!

Yup, it sure was, Max!!! ; ))

That episode ("Time Enough at Last") starred Burgess Meredith. Great episode!

She was such a pretty girl and a good actress. The Twilight Zone was one of my favorite programs.....ever!!! One episode left me in tears. Just remember that there had been a world war and only one man was alive. He struggled to survive but had poor eyesight and depended on his only pair of eyeglasses. Something happened at the end and they fell off his face onto the ground.....where he accidentally stepped on them!!! I cried and cried. Even now it makes me so sad.

such a good episode...Inger was on Twilight Zone at least one more time earlier, it was very good, too...just read a bio...holy carp...such highs and lows...and her death, while definitely due to drugs, was kind of weird. Very good actor...really liked her work...

And poor Inger Stevens! She had a rough childhood--and she died of a drug overdose in 1970.

There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone

Rod Serling: Her name is Nan Adams. She's twenty-seven years old. Her occupation: buyer at a New York department store. At present: on vacation, driving cross-country to Los Angeles, California from Manhattan. [dialogue] Minor incident on Highway 11 in Pennsylvania, perhaps to be filed away under 'accidents you walk away from.' But from this moment on, Nan Adams' companion on her trip to California will be terror. Her route - fear. Her destination - quite unknown.
Rod Serling: Nan Adams, age twenty-seven. She was driving to California, to Los Angeles. She didn't make it. There was a detour through the Twilight Zone

True. Pre-1973 (the great 'oil embargo') you could still buy fuel at these prices.

Air for your tires costs more than 28 cents.

Watched this episode just last night on Netflix™. One of the creepiest episodes in the entire series of 150.

Creepy, indeed... it's very dark out, storm coming... right mood for TZ.

Creepy episode. (Anyone else remember gasoline at 27.9 cents per gallon? I do.)
