Odysseus and his men find a cave in search for a hospitable host.
"Why not take these cheeses, get them stowed, come back, throw open all the pens and make a run for it?"(Odyssey).
Odysseus refused because he wanted to see what the "caveman" had to offer.
Odysseus and his men wander into the cave and find herds of sheep and other supplies for their journey back home.
A cyclops named Polyphemus walks into the cave a moves a boulder in front of the opening. They answered all of Polyphemus' questions and put him to sleep with a very string wine. Odysseus then thought of a plan to escape.
Odysseus and his men blind Polyphemus so they could escape easily.
