  • Miss Kinnian - Teacher
  • "I want to be smart"
  • CHARLIE HAS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR AN OPERATION TO MAKE HIM SMARTER. AN OPERATION WAS SET ON A MOUSE, AND MADE HIM MORE SMART THUS FAR.
  • The more intelligent you become the more problems you'll have, Charlie.'
  • Algernon
  • TWO DOCTORS/PROFFESORS (DR. NEMUR, AND DR. STRAUSS) PERFORM WHAT THEY'VE DONE TO ALGERNON. AFTER THE OPERATION, CHARLIE FINDS HIMSELF UNCHANGED AND UPSET HE'S NOT INTELLIGENT YET.
  • It takes a while Charlie.
  • I wish it would reely work alredy so I coud get smart like evrybody else.
  • OVER TIME, AS HIS INTELLIGENCE EXPANDS HE ACQUIRES MIXED EMOTIONS; THIS BEING ANGER, DISAPPOINTMENT, AND LOVE.
  • But you're changing emotionally too. In a peculiar sense I'm the first woman you've ever been really aware of—in this way.
  • CHARLIE'S EGO HAS GROWN AND BEGUN TO THINK LESSER OF OTHERS. ALGERNON HAS PASSED AWAY, AND CHARLIE IS HAVING THE SAME SYMPTOMS. OVER TIME CHARLIE'S INTELLIGENCE DECLINES,
  • But why am I so irritable? Especially when Alice is so good to me?
  • CHARLIE'S INTELLIGENCE HAS EXPIRED, AND HIS OVERALL MIND IS CORRUPT WITH WEAKNESS AND INABILITY TO FUNCTION. HE PUSHES EVERYONE AWAY, TO LIVE THE REST OF HIS LIFE ALONE.
  • I'm not myself. I'm falling apart, and I don't want you here.
