Storyboard Text

  • Cyclops, take that wine to wash down the scraps of men. Taste what we have brought. It would be an offering if you had helped us home, but you are an unbearable monster.
  • You asked for my name earlier...well let me tell you. It's Nohbdy. It is what everybody calls me.
  • Well then, Nohbdy, my "noble gift" to you will be that I will feast on you last!
  • When evening came, Polyphemus brought his sheep and ram into the cave. After milking them, he caught to more of Odysseus' men and feasted on them. That is when Odysseus knew his plan had to start.
  • Well, since you say that NOBODY has fooled you, we don't have to be too afraid of the great Zeus. Pray to your father now Cyclops.
  • How do we get out??
  • Nohbdy tricked me! Nohbdy has ruined me!!
  • Polyphemus drank down the wine, which consisted of nectar and ambrosia as well. He gulped down another three bottles of the wine, finally losing his sense of mind.
  • C'mon my sheep! Time for your grazing time! Don't worry, I'm going to make sure that Nohbdy will not get out alive, I swear. Nohbdy has angered me now.
  • Using Polyphemus' drunk state as a distraction, Odysseus once again, charred the "spike" into the fire, cheering his men with battle talk.
  • Look at that Cyclops, me and men have escaped! Oh wait, you can't see!
  • With that, Odysseus and his men hurled the sharp spike into Polyphemus' eye. This caused him to bellow in pain. This caused Odysseus to laugh. However, the fact that they were still trapped in the cave was still prominent. Until Odysseus saw the sheep.
  • Odysseus waited till morning. Then, he and his men got under the sheep, who were going to be let out by Polyphemus for grazing. Being blind, Polyphemus would not be able to see them hiding underneath the sheep. This way, Odysseus and his men could escape.
  • Odysseus and his men then quickly ran to their ship, taking the herd along with them. They then set sail, sailing away from the island of the Cyclopes.
