Storyboard Text

  • That was a real pretty dance, they just did.
  •  There were tears on Hazel's face. Hazel and George just had there son taken away and cannot remember who he is  because of the disabilities that the government gave them, like everyone else.
  • Huh.
  • Hazel wants to change the handicap law, but George thinks that handicaps are fine. Meanwhile the government is warning citizens about Harrison Bergeron, George and Hazel's son.
  • If there was just some way we could make a little hole in the bottom of the bag, and just take out a few of them lead balls. Just a few.
  • If I tried to get away with it, then other people'd get away with it-and pretty soon we'd be right back to the dark ages again, with everybody competing against everybody else. You wouldn't like that, would you?
  • If you see this boy, do not - I repeat, do not try to reason with him.
  • I am your emperor! Now I shall choose my empress.
  • Harrison bursts into the theater shouting "I AM YOUR EMPEROR!" Harrison believes that the handicaps are bad and that people shouldn't have to wear them. That's what got him taken away from his family and thrown into prison. But Harrison escaped while wearing his multiple handicaps. 
  • One girl rises up and Harrison chooses her as his empress. He then tells everyone in the room to remove their handicaps and start playing music. Immediately, Harrison and the empress jump into the air and start dancing, without the laws of space or gravity affecting them. 
  • Take off your handicaps! Now, PLAY!
  • I will be your empress.
  • You have 10 seconds to get your handicaps back on!
  • Diana Mon Glampers came into the theater with a 10 gauge double barrel shotgun and killed Harrison and the (former) empress. Then she shouted "you have 10 seconds to get your handicaps on" at the ballerinas and the musicians. Then, the screen wnt black.
  • There were tears on Hazel's face again. George walked into the room, and seeing the tears on Hazel's and asked "whats wrong?" Hazel replied "I don't know." George then told her to "forget sad things." Which she did. This story has no arc. The ending is the same ad the beginning.
  • I always do.
  • Forget sad things.
