A small-town doctor learns that the population of his community is being replaced by emotionless alien duplicates.
During test screenings, much of the film's original humor and humanity was cut when the audience found it difficult to follow and laughed at all the wrong moments. The studio insisted on edits because it wasn't policy to mix humor with horror.
Dr. Miles J. Bennell:
This is the oddest thing I've ever heard of. Let's hope we don't catch it. I'd hate to wake up some morning and find out that you weren't you.
Becky: I'm not the high school kid you use to romance, so how can you tell?
Dr. Miles J. Bennell: You really want to know?
Dr. Miles J. Bennell: ...
The morning after Dr. Bennell brings Becky to his house, she makes breakfast for him. She asks if he wants his eggs boiled for 2 minutes. Then they hear a noise which is the gasman in the basement, and talk to him. She then runs back exclaiming "They'll be hard boiled!". But they've only been in the water for 34 seconds. What she then serves would essentially be raw eggs.
