Brains over Braun and Seduction

Storyboard Text

  • Brains over Braun (1)
  • (Continued 2)
  • (Continued 3)
  • Nohbdy will not get out alive, I swear.
  • Odysseus (Nohbdy) and his men had stumbled across Polyphemus, the cyclops's, cave and were soon trapped inside. He had to think fast before they all were eaten for dinner. Odysseus first said, "Here's liquor to wash down your scraps of men." Then while Polyphemus was drunk, Odysseus stabbed him in the eye with a sharp stick.
  • Seduction (1)
  • Calypso, you've been keeping me here for ten years! Let me go home.
  • Polyphemus cried out in anger and pain to his fellow cyclops. He said, "Nohbdy has ruined me!" The other cyclops, confused, left Polyphemus thinking that nobody had ruined him.
  • (Continued 2)
  • Your wife is a mortal who doesn't even compare with a goddess like me.
  • Odysseus had an idea of how to escape. Later that night, he and his men tied themselves underneath Polyphemus's rams. That way when Polyphemus let his rams out of the cave, like he did daily, he would also let Odysseus and his men free.
  • (Continued 3)
  • Hermes! What are you doing here?
  • I was sent by Zeus to rescue you from the seductive Calypso.
  • Odysseus is a prisoner of Calypso, a beautiful goddess. He has unwillingly spent ten years on her island, held captive. Odysseus is "trying to get home" but Calypso doesn't give up and asks why he'd want to go home to his wife, when he has her.
  • Why would you want to go home to your wife when you have me?
  • Calypso then uses her seductive charm to convince Odysseus that life on the island is better than home life in Troy. She tells him that his wife is aging quickly and doesn't compare to her immortality. Calypso also says that if he stays with her, he too could become immortal.
  • Stay with me and you can be immortal.
  • The goddess Athena is Odysseus's protector on his journey so she "begs her father, Zeus," to help Odysseus. Zeus agrees and he sends Hermes, the messenger of the gods, to rescue Odysseus from Calypso and her island.
