- This troper saw It's Still A Good Life from The Twilight Zone revival, and was initially confused by the behavior of Anthony's daughter, Audry. After a bit of thought though, her behavior suddenly made perfect sense. Throughout the episode, we see that Audry is the only one not afraid of Anthony and is able to subtly manipulate him (as shown when she keeps him from hurting someone in the bowling alley). In the episode's climax, she was put in a difficult position - she can defend her friends and grandmother and let loose her anger towards her father and punish him, but she also does still love her father and doesn't really want to hurt him. She knows that she can both send things to and bring them back from the cornfield. So she pitches a fit and pretends to side with him and sends everyone away, to show him the error of his ways. Anthony is clearly lonely and a bit afraid after she leaves them alone in the town, and as soon as he tells her as much, she brings everything back and convinces him to travel to New York. It was a clever plan that let him know the error of his ways without having to attack anyone permanently.
