Storyboard Text

  • "Shame on you, you slanderer!"
  • "You women are all the same. You’re as pretty as pictures when you’re out in public, but in your own houses you’re as noisy as jangling bells."
  • "You clearly have nothing good to say about me."
  • "He speaks bluntly, madam. He’s more of a soldier than a wise man."
  • "With Cassio? That’s impossible."
  • "He’s a bad boy, and Desdemona’s got her eye on him already."
  • "My beautiful warrior!"
  • Desdemona, Cassio, Iago, and Emilia safely arrive at Cyprus, awaiting Othello. Cassio and Desdemona start to tease Emilia, only to be interrupted by Iago, who starts to degrade women. He says they're all lazy, except when it comes to sex. Desdemona decides to play along, but Cassio takes her away to talk about Othello.
  • "I’ll do it, but I don’t like it."
  • "Oh, but these are our friends. Just one glass. I’ll do most of the drinking for you."
  • Iago and Roderigo watch as Cassio takes her hand, and talk about how it's 'romantic' when it's completely platonic. Iago states that Desdemona will grow tired of Othello and favor Cassio, but Roderigo disagrees. Iago calls him a "knave" and convinces Roderigo to start a quarrel with him later. Soon after, Iago talks about how he believes that Othello slept with Emilia, so he lusts after Desdemona. After seeing the connection between the too, he decides that Cassio is a better suitor.
  • "Go tell everyone there’s a riot."
  • “Help! Help!”
  • "Damn you, you villain, you rascal!
  • After the discovery of the Turk's sinking, Othello whisks Desdemona off to finally celebrate their victory and union.
  • "My reputation, my reputation! I’ve lost my reputation, the longest-living and truest part of myself!"
  • "Othello, I’ve been seriously hurt."
  • "Cassio, I love you, but you’re never again going to be one of my officers."
  • Othello leaves Cassio on guard and Iago joins him. He says other men will be coming with drinks and that Cassio should join in the celebration. Cassio politely declines, but after Iago keeps going, he finally succumbs and agrees to have a drink. Cassio, already drunk, leaves to bring in Montano. Soon, he's so intoxicated that he leaves.
  • Iago sends Roderigo off to follow the drunk Cassio. He takes this time to discuss Cassio with Montano, saying that Cassio suffers from alcoholism. As if on cue, Iago enters running and screaming, being chased by Cassio. Monatano butts in, only to be stabbed by Cassio.
  • "No, don’t hit him, lieutenant! Please, sir, restrain yourself. "
  • After the fight, an alarm sounds, bringing Othello into the scene. He questions as to what happens, and Montano being severely injured, asks Iago to answer for him. He tells Othello of Cassio's behavior. In response, Othello fires Cassio and promotes Othello. When he departs, Cassio takes the time to mourn his lost repuatiation.
