Spoiler Alert! At the end, the one rider reveals multiple arms and says he's a Martian, but just before the credits roll, the soda jerk lifts his cap to show his third eye in the middle of his forehead. He's from Venus and has been here a few years, readying for his planet to take over the Earth. Great episode! You can find it on YouTube. It's worth a watch. Here's looking at you, Kid.

In the Zone
The eyes have it. Do you see them peering back at you from these birches? Are you a Twilight Zone fan? Do you remember the episode "Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up?" One of my favorites . I think the title is taken from that old tag line from the show "To Tell the Truth". You know, 'will the real_____ please stand up?'. I won't bore you with too many of the details, but suffice to say troopers follow footprints from a frozen pond. Inside a diner they find a bus driver, his seven passengers and a soda jerk. The driver is positive there were only six on the bus with him. Is there an alien among them? Who might it be? Martian? Other? What's their purpose here on earth?
