This storyboard does not have a description.
"Listen, there was a time when you couldn’t even go to the rest room in this school without a pass. And I’m not talking about those little pink tickets made out by some teacher. I’m talking about a pass that could cost anywhere up to a buck, sold by Monk Klutter."
"Priscilla was, hands down, the largest student in our particular institution of learning. I’m not talking fat. I’m talking big. Even beautiful, in a bionic way. You talk about The Odd Couple. Melvin’s one of the smallest guys above midget status ever seen. A really nice guy, but, you know—little."
"The gang he (Monk) ran, which ran the school for him, was his collection agency. They were Klutter’s Kobras, a name spelled out innailheads on six well-known black plastic windbreakers."
"Priscilla was sort of above everything, if you’ll pardon the pun. And very calm, as only the very big can be. If there was anybody who didn’t notice Klutter’s Kobras, it was Priscilla."
"Anyway, up to Melvin’s locker swaggers one of the Kobras. He reaches down and grabs little Melvin by the neck and slams his head against his locker door.The sound of skull against steel rippled all the way down the locker row, speeding the crowds on their way. 'Okay, let’s see your pass,' snarls the Kobra. 'A pass for what this time?' Melvin asks, probably still dazed. 'Let’s call it a pass for very short people,' says the Kobra, 'a dwarf tax.' "
"Priscilla’s behind him in another easy motion. And with a single mighty thrust forward, frog-marches Monk into her own locker. It’s incredible. His ostrich-skin boots click once in the air. And suddenly he’s gone, neatly wedged into the locker, a perfect fit. ...Well, this is where fate, an even bigger force than Priscilla,steps in. It snows all that night, a blizzard. The whole town ices up. And school closes for a week. "
