Bob Hill and his new wife Betty were vacationing in Europe... as it
happens, near Transylvania . They were driving in a rental car
along a rather deserted highway. It was late and raining very hard.
Bob could barely see the road in front of the car. Suddenly the car
skids out of control! Bob attempts to control the car, but to no
avail! The car swerves and smashes into a tree.

Moments later, Bob shakes his head to clear the fog. Dazed, he looks over at the passenger seat and sees his wife unconscious, with her
head bleeding! Despite the rain and unfamiliar countryside, Bob
knows he has to get her medical assistance.

Bob carefully picks his wife up and begins trudging down the road.
After a short while, he sees a light. He heads towards the light,
which is coming from a large, old house. He approaches the door and

A minute passes. A small, hunched man opens the door. Bob
immediately blurts, "Hello, my name is Bob Hill, and this is my wife
Betty. We've been in a terrible accident, and my wife has been
seriously hurt. Can I please use your phone?"

"I'm sorry," replied the hunchback, "but we don't have a phone. My
master is a doctor; come in and I will get him!"

Bob brings his wife in.

An older man comes down the stairs. "I'm afraid my assistant may
have misled you. I am not a medical doctor; I am a scientist..
However, it is many miles to the nearest clinic, and I have had a
basic medical training. I will see what I can do. Igor, bring them
down to the laboratory."

With that, Igor picks up Betty and carries her downstairs, with Bob
following closely. Igor places Betty on a table in the lab. Bob
collapses from exhaustion and his own injuries, so Igor places Bob
on an adjoining table.

After a brief examination, Igor's master looks worried. "Things are
serious, Igor. Prepare a transfusion." Igor and his master work
feverishly, but to no avail. Bob and Betty Hill are no more.

The Hills' deaths upset Igor's master greatly. Wearily, he climbs
the steps to his conservatory, which houses his grand piano. For it
is here that he has always found solace. He begins to play, and a
stirring, almost haunting melody fills the house.

Meanwhile, Igor is still in the lab tidying up. His eyes catch
movement, and he notices the fingers on Betty's hand twitch, keeping
time to the haunting piano music.. Stunned, he watches as Bob's arm
begins to rise, marking the beat! He is further amazed as Betty and
Bob both sit up straight!

Unable to contain himself, he dashes up the stairs to the

He bursts in and shouts to his master:

"Master, Master! ..... The Hills are alive with the sound of music!"
