“Harrison Bergeron, age fourteen,” she said in a grackle squawk, “has just escaped from jail, where he was held on suspicion of plotting to overthrow the government. He is a genius and an athlete is under–handicapped, and should be regarded as extremely dangerous.” This evidence is when Harrison first and is being broadcasted.
"Screams and barking cries of consternation came from the television set. The photograph of Harrison Bergeron on the screen jumped again and again, as though dancing to the tune of an earthquake. A living, breathing Harrison filled the screen." This evidence shows when Harrison first came to the stage.
You have ten seconds to get your handicaps back on!!!
"Harrison thrust his thumbs under the bar of the padlock that secured his head harness. The bar snapped like celery. Harrison smashed his headphones and spectacles against the wall." "The musicians scrambled back into their chairs, and Harrison stripped them of their handicaps, too. “Play your best,” he told them, “and I’ll make you barons and dukes and earls.” He did this after asking for music and asked one of the women to dance with him who also had their handicap off.
"Harrison and his Empress merely listened to the music for a while – listened gravely, as though synchronizing their heartbeats with it. And then, in an explosion of joy and grace, into the air they sprang! Not only were the laws of the land abandoned, but the law of gravity and the laws of motion as well. They reeled, whirled, swiveled, flounced, capered, gamboled, and spun." They did all of this without handicaps.
"It was then that Diana Moon Glampers, the Handicapper General, came into the studio with a double-barreled ten-gauge shotgun. She fired twice, and the Emperor and the Empress were dead before they hit the floor.Diana Moon Glampers loaded the gun again. She aimed it at the musicians and told them they had ten seconds to get their handicaps back on."
"It was then that the Bergerons’ television tube burned out." Then people watching it, like George and Hazel, forgot what happened as quickly as it came on.
