He's here-Odysseus- he's come home at long last! He's killed the suitors...
The gods have made you mad....Why do you mock me? Haven't I wept enough?
Follow me down now. I'll stake my life on it: if I am lying to you kill me with a thousand knives of pain!
Let's go join my son so I can see the suitors lying dead and see...the one who killed them
Leave your mother here in the hall to test me as she will
Why do you spurn my father so-why don't you sit beside him, engage him, ask him questions?
I'm stunned with wonder, powerless...we two have secret signs, known to us both but hidden from the world
A flash back to odysseus killing the suitors
Impossible task, even for some skilled craftsmen...I know, I built it myself
Come, Eurycleia, move the sturdy bedstead out of our bridal chamber-that room the master built with his own hands
I finished off the walls with tight stonework, roofed it over soundly and added doors, hung well and snugly wedged
But come, let's go to bed, dear woman-at long last delight in sleep
2 hours later: But now I must be off to the upland farm... to see my father
But now, since you have revealed such overwhelming proof-the secret sign of our bed... you've conquered my heart
This shows the side of Odysseus left from before his journey, angry because Penelope thinks the bed he built can be moved. Penelope says to move Odysseus' bed to see what he would say so she would know if it is
This is one of the last stages of Odysseus's journey he returns to his home a changed person and gets to see his family
