  • Great episode, very thought provoking.

    8.5
    I really enjoyed this episode. It was about a bum, who finds a person (who was murdered) in a alley. He takes his shoes and wears them. When he has them on, he is like a ghost of the guy that died. The bum, who is actually the ghost of the dead guy (when the shoes are on) goes after the guy that murdered him. Not going to say the ending, but this episode really makes you think. Great acting, and a great cast in my opinion. Watch this episode. It will most likely be on the Sci-Fi channel someday. That is how I saw it today.moreless

  • QUOTES (4)

    • (Opening Narration)
      Narrator: Nathan Edward Bledsoe, of the Bowery Bledsoes, a man once, a specter now. One of those myriad modern-day ghosts that haunt the reeking nights of the city in search of a flop, a handout, a glass of forgetfulness. Nate doesn't know it but his search is about to end, because those shiny new shoes are going to carry him right into the capital of the Twilight Zone.

    • Dagget: The, uh, fellow who gave you the message, what'd he look like?
      Nate: Ah, Bernie, my business is forgetting, not remembering.

    • Dane: Try tequila... with a cube of sugar.

    • (Closing Narration)
      Narrator: There's an old saying that goes, 'If the shoe fits, wear it.' But be careful. If you happen to find a pair of size nine black-and-gray loafers, made to order in the old country, be very careful--you might walk right into the Twilight Zone.
