  • The theme of "The Monkey's Paw" is to be careful what you wish for because the White family wished on the monkey's paw, and bad things came out of it.
  • The Monkey's Paw
  • This scene shows Sergeant-Major Morris tells the White's that the paw is very dengerous, but Herbert and Mr. White laugh it off, and Mrs. White tries to tell them not to mess with it.
  • Be careful, the monkey's paw is dangerous!
  • Hahaha! It just a boring old paw!
  • Uh Oh! Don't mess with it!
  • No! Don't wish on it, what if it is real?
  • In this scene, Herbert makes jokes about the paw, mocking it, while Mrs. White continues being worried. In the end, Mr. White makes his first wish for 200 pounds.
  • I wish for 200 pounds!
  • Wish to be an emperor!
  • Here shows the White family realising the power of the paw, and learns that what they wish for may not end how the may think.
  • Oh my goodness! Th-the paw! i-it, the wish!
  • My son!
  • Your son was caught in machinery, the compeny gives 200 pounds as compensation
  • But, honey! No! I can't! Fine! I wish for my son!
  • This shows Mr. and Mrs. White arguing whether or not they should wish for their son alive again. In the end, Mr. White makes the wish.
  • Please! Just wish! Wish! Please!
  • The final scene shows the monkeys paw, with its final finger curled, showing that Mr. White made his last wish, and a wail of sadness running through the house, as it lays dark and empty.
