  • Exposition
  • Hullo Darling
  • Hullo Darling
  • Conflict
  • "So there it is... and I know it's kind of a bad time to tell you, but there was simply no other way I could tell you."
  • Rising Action
  • This relates to the 1950's because during that time they [women] were expected to greet their husbands when they come home.
  • Falling Action
  • "How about a big nice slice of cheesecake? I know he likes that."
  • Mary is so shocked by the news that Patrick's gave her that she is speechless and doesn't know how to respond. The way that Mary seems about the news shows that she actually loved Patrick.
  • Falling Action
  • When Mary Maloney hits Patrick in the back of his head with the leg of a lamb she steps back slowly, feeling cold and surprised of what she did. When Mary steps back slowly, feeling cold and surprised of what she did, shows that Mary was speechless,but wasn't fully aware of what she did to Patrick. For Mary's perfect murder she used a weapon, the leg of a lamb.
  • Resolution
  • Another thing to Mary's perfect murder is that she manipulates Sam to make it look nothing is suspicious. What that shows about her is that she is trying not to get caught. Because she knows the penalty for murder is death and she is pregnant with a baby and she doesn't know if they will wait for her to give birth or kill her anyway. So she doesn't want to take the risk. 
  • "Perfect. He loves that."
  • Mary Maloney's other ingredient to a perfect murder is that she is acting, so that the police don't find out what really happened.
  • Mary Maloney's perfect murder insist of getting rid of the evidence. She does insists on the police eating the leg of a lamb that she used to kill Patrick her husband. By doing so they can't trace the evidence, and it shows that she is very clever.
