First Six Steps

Storyboard Text

  • “The Ordinary World”
  • “The Call to Adventure”
  • “Refusal of the Call”
  • This is when Skeeter asks Aibileen if she could ask her questions about house cleaning. Skeeter is asking Aibileen because she is older and has more experience with house cleaning. Skeeter is writing about house cleaning for the news paper. Quote: "Abilileen" --I take a deep breath--"I was wondering if I could get your help on something." I tell her about the column then, grateful when she nods that she know who Miss Myrna is.  (Page 92)
  • “Meeting with the Mento/Helper”
  • This is when Miss Skeeter goes to Aibileens House and asks her if she could interview Aibileen for her book about being a African American Maid.  Quote: "I want to interview you. About what it's like to work as a maid." (Page 119)
  • “Crossing the Threshold”
  • This is the first time Aibileen and Miss Skeeter meet together or the interviews on the book. Aibileen throws up and says she is not doing the interviews any more.  Quote: Five minutes pass. When she comes back, she holds a towel to her front, the way I've seen mother do after she vomits, when she doesn't make it to her toliet in time.  "I'm sorry. i thought I was... ready to talk." (Page 170) 
  • “Test and Enemies”
  • This is when Aibileen gets the courage again to help Miss Skeeter with her book again. For her to get the confidence again she thinks about her son Treelore.  Quote: At Eight o'clock that same night, I'm stumbling down Aibileen's street as discreetly as one can carrying a fifty-pound Corona typewriter. I knock softly, already dying for another cigarette to calm my nerves. Abibleen answers and I slip inside. Page (173)
  • This is when Aibileen convinced Minny to help with Miss Skeeter's book. Aibileen is so surprised ans amazed that an African American is working with a white lady in the 1960s. Quote: I been in some tense situatuins, but to have Minny on one side a my living room and Miss Skeeter on the other, and the topic at hand be what if fell like being Negro and working for a white woman. Law, it's a wonder they hadn't bee a injury. (page 214) 
  • This is when Miss Hilly is over a Miss Leefolt's house with her kids and she is talking about what was in Miss Skeeter Bag. Miss Hilly found a book about laws about the African Americans and white people and how they are separated.  Quote: I.m trying to make sense a what Miss Hilly just said: Miss Skeeter. Her satchel. I read it. (Page 219)
