This storyboard does not have a description.
"I will stand still for your stroke, steady on the floor, provided your honor my right, when my inning comes, to repay" (lines 76-77).
"I beseech you, sire, let this game be mine" (lines 123-124).
You are welcome to stay with me and my lady for a few days.
The Green knight arrives at King Arthur's Christmas dinner and proposes a deal that today the king could chop off his head, and in a year and a day he will chop off King Arthur's head.
"For a man who goes into battle in this green lace, as long as he loops it around him, no man under Heaven can hurt him, whoever may try, for nothing on earth, however uncanny, can kill him" (lines 232-235).
Sir Gawain decides to accept the deal in place of the king and chops off the green knights head. The knight picks up his head and rides away.
"Hit me hero! I'm right up to here with your threats"(line 292).
When one year was almost complete, Sir Gawain goes in search of the Green Knight. He goes to a castle and the lord of it allows him in. They agree that whatever they receive each day, they will exchange with each other at the end of the day.
"I can't deny my guilt; My work shines none too fair! Give me your good will and henceforth I'll beware" (lines 377- 380).
"A man who's true to his word, there's nothing he needs to fear; You failed me, though, on the third exchange, so I've tapped you here" (lines 346- 349).
The lord's wife gives sir Gawain kisses which Gawain then exchanges with the lord. On the third day, she also gives him a green silk sash that protects the person that wears it in battle. He does not exchange this with the lord.
A year and a day was up, and Sir Gawain, wearing his green sash, finds the green knight. The knight tries to chop off his head, but it does not even hurt him because of the green sash.
The green knight reveals to Sir Gawain that he was the lord of the castle. He told Sir Gawain that he was glad that he had kept his end of the agreement on the first two days, but was disappointed that he was not honest and did not give him the sash on the third. Sir Gawain was ashamed of his lack of trust and returned the sash to the knight. The green knight forgave him for his mistake.
