This storyboard does not have a description.
This scene is significant because John is expressing innocence and love for Lenina through Shakespeare's words.
"'Her eyes, her hair, her cheek, her gait, her voice, Handlest in thy discourse, O, that her hand, In whose comparison all whites are ink, Writing their own reproach, to whose soft seizure The cygnet's down is harsh…'" (144).
This is significant because it shows John's internal struggle where two worlds collide. He wants to touch Lenina, as acceptable in the World State, but savage norms tell him that's not right.
"...he put out his hand. It hung there trembling...Did he dare?" (144).
This is a continuation of John's hesitation to unzip Lenina's pink onesie. He feels ashamed because this is not what he was taught in the Savage Reservation. This is the sort of behavior God does not condone. SPOILER: Bernard's helicopter interrupts, so he does not go further.
"...ashamed of [my]self. Pure and vestal modesty" (144).
