Storyboard Text

  • I wish John would realize that I need to think about my nervous depression...John does not know how much I really suffer. He knows​ there is no reason to suffer, and that satisfies him.
  • You are forbidden to work until you are well again and your exercise depends on your strength. For now, let's keep it at a minimal​ and I will bring you your prescription.
  • My Journal
  • This color is repellent, almost revolting; a smoldering unclean yellow, strangely faded by the slow-turning sunlight. I asked John about repapering this room, but he said I was just letting it get the best of me. Oh.. I have to go, John is coming. I think sometimes if I were only well enough to write a little it would relieve the press of ideas and rest me.
  • John thought it was a good idea to see some company, but it is very exhausting.
  • If you don't pick up faster I am going to send you to Weir Mitchell in the fall.
  • My Journal
  • I must say what I feel and think in some way-- it is such a relief! I tried to talk to John about visiting our cousin but he said I couldn't stand it. And this wallpaper, behind this pattern, is a woman stooping down and creeping.
  • Why, darling, our lease will be up in three weeks, and I can't see how to leave before. The repairs are not done at home, and I cannot possibly leave town just now. Of course if you were in any danger, I could and would, but you really are bet­ter, dear, whether you can see it or not. I am a doctor, dear, and I know.
  • I'm not getting any better here, John please take me away.
  • The woman is creeping around the yellow wallpaper. But there is something else about that paper - the smell! It creeps all over the house.
  • I've got out at last in spite of you and Jane. And I've pulled off most of the paper, so you can't put me back!
