Twilight Zone: The Fever

Recommended Posts

I love this episode of Twilight Zone. A couple arrives in Las Vegas after the wife wins a vacation there in a contest. The husband, Franklin, goes along despite the fact he feels gambling is immoral. He ends up winning a small jackpot when a drunk gives him a silver dollar and forces him to put it into the machine. From then on, he's caught "the fever". He "hears" the machine haunting him, calling to him... "Fraaaaankliiiinn" and ends up obsessively gambling most of their savings away.


My husband and I occasionally go to casinos for fun, we know the odds of us winning are slim. Still, when one of us gets a little too serious about it, the other will call out "Fraaaaankliiin" in that creepy voice and we know to tone it down. LOL!
