Storyboard Text

  • Expostion 
  • Oh hi hunny how was your day at work? I'll go get your drink for you. I'll get you some snacks.
  • NO I don't want any snacks just my drink.
  • Rising Action 
  • Climax
  • In the expostion of the story, we are introduced to the main character. Mary Maloney and her husband Patrick. Mary was pregnant and it was her sixth month expecting a child. The story takes place in their house where her and her husband are sitting down. Patrick is about to tell Mary some nose she might not want to know right now. 
  • Falling action
  • In the rising action of the story. Mary is very upset with Patrick after he told her he was leaving her while she is pregnant. She went to the kitchen and grabbed the lamb from the freezer and went back into the living room. Patrick was still drinking his whiskey standing up watching out the window. Mary hit him i the back of the head with the lamb and she thinks she killed him.
  • Resoultion
  • the murder weapon is probably right under our noses
  • In the climax Mary realizes that she actually killed her husband with the lamb. She drops the lamb on the floor and crys. Then she picks up the lamb and runs to the kitchen and puts it in the oven and goes upstairs and gets ready to go to the store like nothing just happened at the house
  • Literary Element 
  • In the falling action Mary pretends she didn't kill her husband so she doesn't go to jail with a baby. She calls the police and tells them that she found her husband dead when she got back from the store. They did not think Mary was a suspect. They search the house for the murder weapon to see if the murder left anything.
  • In the resoultion of the story Mary insits that the police men eat the lamb because she could never after her husband died. But little do they know that they are going to eat the murder weapon. Mary walks out of the kitchen and laughs at them because they have no idea that they are eating it. 
  • hahahahaha. Mary laughs from the other room.
  • Situational irony because Mary is very upset and says she is just going to the kitchen to get some food and that's what patrick thinks. But when she comes back the has a leg of lamb in her hand and is going to hit him with it. But patrick has no idea was is coming for him.
