  • Flashback
  • I'm so smart (hubris)
  • Solve my riddle and I'll go. What has four legs at dawn, two at midday, and three in the evening?
  • A human
  • Ha! I banish you from Thebes at once!
  • You're correct.
  • Aww, now I have to leave!
  • Back to Thebes, where Creon returns with news...
  • Hey Creon! What did Apollo say?
  • Creon is definitely trying to steal my throne! He took so long to come back.
  • It's great to see you Oedipus!
  • I will do everything I can to bring this unknown group of murderers to justice!
  • If not, I shall pay the penalty.(dramatic irony)

  • Episode 1
  • Praying to the gods is all well and good, but you should trust me. (hubris) Might you know who the killer of Lauis is?
  • Creon already urged me to get him. He should be here soon.
  • No, I don't know. But Teiresias might.
  • Please, we need deliversacne from the pollution of the killer.
  • Teiresias, we were hoping you might know who Laius's killers are. So we can avenge his murder.
  • You won't like the answer very much. I would rather not argue with you.
  • I would rather not say.
  • How dare you speak such lies?
  • Fine Oedipus, you are the killer and the polluter of Thebes.
  • Your speaking lies. What would you know anyway? You're blind.
  • Oedipus, you refuse to accept the truth about yourself, so you are the true blind man.
  • What I am saying is true. There is a prophecy that says you will mkill your dad, arry your mom and have kids with her.
  • You must be working with Creon in his plan overthrow me as king.
  • Hey, let's try to calm down and figure out what to do?
  • I don't know what you mean.
  • Don't make fun of me.
  • Whether you want to believe it or not, you will carry out the prophecy.
  • For a knowledgable person like yourself, I would assume you might understand.
  • I want you to leave immediatly.
  • I will go at your request., But remember what I said about the prophecy.
  • Ode 1
  • We wish that the gods would rival who Lauis's murderer is. it can't be Oedipjus! He saved us from the sphinx.
  • Episode 2
  • My dear audience, I have been told Oedipus has been spreading evil about me. I must find out why.
  • Ah, he was probably just angry about something. Probably not ay you. He doesn't have any reason to be mad at you. If he was that would make him crazy.
  • Creon you traitor! I know of your evil plan to take over the throne. You really thought Teiresias could fool me?
  • Oedipus, what do you mean? I don't want the throne. even if I did I could have taken it years ago.
  • You are a liar Creon! I know not that I can not trust you!
  • You continue to lie to me. I want you banished from Thebes!
  • Second, Being king is a lot of responsibility. People are always talking to you about their problems. Why would I want that?
  • There is no reason for me to want the throne. I get so many bribes just by being associated with you. Not even from doing any work.
  • I'll leave and let you cool off.
  • Creon sent a prophet to lie and say that I killed Lauis!
  • There's no way that can be true. Laius and my son was the one who was prophesized to kill him. We had him taken care of years ago.
  • What's going on?
  • Oh no! That could have been me!
  • He was killed where Athena lane crosses with Diyonysus avenue. He was traveling byhimself.
  • Don't worry about it. Te prophecy also said that pour son would marry his mom. If he's now dead, there's no way he can do any of those things.
  • I'll look I not it just to be safe.
  • No! I must.
  • No! Please don't! Just stop looking!
  • Ode 2
  • Oedipus needs to face reality. Fate will find him either way.
