EPISODE SYNOPSIS: Smith and Will discover a strange device which has the power to materialize an object the holder has in mind. Immediately there is great competition amongst the whole family for its services. But instead of being a blessing, it only makes the users progressively greedier. Quarrels break out as to whose turn is next and even cheating is resorted to, while necessary chores are left undone waiting for the ‘thought machine’ to do them instead. Robinson anxious at this change in his family, orders Smith to take the device back to where he found it. Smith is secretly determined to keep it but an Alien creature appears & silently demands what is evidently his property.
