Storyboard Text

  • Seduction
  • Well, I'm travelling back to my Ithacan home... but I can definitely stop to rest! And... you're so beautiful that I can't resist!
  • Come, oh great and handsome Odysseus. Enter my cave where I will give you rest and pampering.
  • More Seduction
  • Would you like a lotus flower, oh great travellers?
  • And Even More Seduction
  • Untie me, please!
  • Odysseus approaches the cave of the nymph Calypso. She tempts him into her cave so he can stay with her... forever? Well, not really. More like seven years, darn it.
  • Brains Over Braun
  • Cyclops, try some wine. Here's liquor to wash down your scraps of men.
  • When Odysseus and his men travel to the Island of the Lotus Eaters, some residents offer his men lotus flowers: treats that make people never want to leave the island. Guess what. They have some. There seems to be forming a pattern.
  • Brains Over Braun Part 2
  • As Odysseus is travelling, he comes across sirens that lure people with their sweet voices... to their deaths. Odysseus's men put beeswax in their ears to keep them from hearing the sweet sounds. Odysseus is tied to a mast, but hears the sirens.
  • Brains Over Braun Part 3
  • Odysseus gives the cyclops Polyphemus some wine to make him drift off to sleep, so he and his men can carry out a plan to get out of Polyphemus's cave.
  • Odysseus grabs a stick to carry out his plan. As Odysseus tells it: "My four fellows gave me a hand, lugging it (the stick) near the Cyclops... and rammed it deep in his crater eye". The cyclops can now not see very well, which gives the men an advantage.
  • Shortly after this, Odysseus forms the idea of tying himself and his men to the cyclops's rams so they can escape the cave as the rams go out to pasture to eat.
