Recap

Gabe O’Brien is in the middle of a car accident and ends up driving home in his wrecked car. He goes into his house where his daughter Linda is playing the violin, badly, and his wife Nancy is taking care of the baby.

Episode Quotes
Host: (opening narration) William Shakespeare once wrote that the fault lies not in our stars but in ourselves. However, Gabe O'Brien, a man who just can't get a break is about to learn the fault may actually lie somewhere else.

Gabe: Luke, if I'm going to do this there can't be any screw-ups.
Luke: It's a piece of cake.
Gabe: "A piece of cake." "Cookies and milk." Something tells me I'm going to end up on bread and water.

Gabe: Is... is God in there?
Jumpsuit Man: God? No. God works out of his home.

Host: (closing narration) Shakespeare observed that all the world's a stage, its men and women merely players. But Gabe O'Brien proved that sometimes you can grab the pen from the poet and write your own story. A lesson learned in The Twilight Zone.
