Storyboard Text

  • Have you heard of the Johnstone twins?
  • Quick, take one...
  • You can't! I'll tell someone...
  • Get out!
  • "As like each other as two new pins Of one womb born, on the self same day, How one was kept and one given away?"
  • From now on, we're Blood Brothers!
  • Mrs Johnstone gives birth to twins. Mrs Lyons arrives and, after reminding Mrs Johnstone of their pact, takes one of the twins.
  • Bye son...
  • I don't wanna go!
  • Mrs Johnstone still works at Mrs Lyons’ house, but Mrs Lyons feels uncomfortable, thinking that Mrs Johnstone is becoming too attached to the twin she has given away. Mrs Lyons tries to pay Mrs Johnstone to leave. Mrs Johnstone threatens to tell the police about the baby, but Mrs Lyons terrifies her with a superstitious omen: she claims that if either twin learns of his brother, both will die. Mrs Johnstone leaves and stops working at the Lyon’s house.
  • You'll like it, I swear!
  • They learn that their birthdays are identical and decide to become ‘blood brothers’. They nick their hands with Mickey’s penknife and clasp hands. Mickey says “See, this means that we’re blood brothers, an’ that we always have to stand by each other."
