"On the Road" is the third story that is featured in the first episode of Season 1.
Plot[edit | edit source]
Cal is the manager and husband of a famous soul singer named Vicky Sawyer, who he and his daughter Molly, barely see as she stays on the road for weeks at a time touring. Vicky calls Cal at 11:15 A.M. to meet her at the old neighborhood club where they first met and fell in love. Upon entering, Vicky is nowhere to be found and Cal assumes that Vicky is trying to surprise him. Molly meets him there as Cal shares his memory of his date with Vicky and their memories of being at the club as a family. Cal soon gets a call from a friend who gives him bad news about Vicky as Molly comes over, ecstatic over finding the other missing earring.
Cal finds out that Molly received a call from Vicky around the same time and that the friend who called said the plane with Vicky and her band members crashed on the way to Jacksonville at 10:30 A.M. that morning and that everyone, including Vicky, died in the crash. It was possible that Vicky wanted to reunite with her family one last time from beyond the grave by sending them to place with their most amazing memories.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Although this story is fiction, a similar event happened eleven years after the airing of this story on September 12, 2008. A man by the name of Charles E. Peck was killed when a commuter train collided with a freight train. During the first eleven hours before his body was discovered, his cell phone called his son, brother, stepmother, sister and fiancée (when they picked it up, all they heard on the other end was static and when called back, it went to voicemail).
