Storyboard Text

  • Miller is drunk, and starts to tell a story about the Carpenter (Reeve) and his wife.
  • The carpenter's wife (Allison) is a young and wild girl. The carpenter is old and a jealous man. Nicholas is a scholar who lives in the house.
  • The carpenter leaves town, and Nicholas forces Allison to have an affair with him. He threatens to tell her husband. Finally Allison gives in and realizes her love for Nicholas.
  • Nicholas hides from the carpenter and is found. He thinks of an excuse for hiding, and says that he had a vision. He tells the carpenter to prepare for a flood by making three separate boats. This allows him to sneak around the house and be with Alison for another night.
  • Absalom, a famous man with the ladies, professes his love for Allison while her husband is hiding in the boat. He asks for a kiss, and she wants to trick him. Instead of her head, she puts her backside out the window and lets him kiss that.
  • Absalom wants to get revenge on Allison. He takes a molten hot metal stick and asks her to kiss him again. This time Nicholas sticks his backside out the window and gets burned by the metal, screaming water. Hearing the scream, the carpenter thinks the flood has come and cuts his boat loose, but ends up hitting the ground. Everyone thought the carpenter was crazy.
