Storyboard Text

  • "strangers, who are you? And where from?" (Homer 902).
  • "Cyclopes, try some wine" (Homer 904).
  • Odysseus and his men arrive at the land of the Cyclopes, and they come across a cave filled with sheep and crates of cheese and milk.
  • "so...we bored that great eye socket while blood ran out" (Homer 906).
  • Polyphemus returns to his cave, and when he sees the strangers, he devours two of Odysseus' men and traps Odysseus and his men in his cave to eat later.
  • "I hung myself under his kinky belly" (Homer 908).
  • Odysseus and his men offer wine to Polyphemus and get him drunk. When Polyphemus asks Odysseus what his name is, Odysseus responds with "Nobody".
  • Polyphemus passes out drunk, and Odysseus grabs a sharp wooden staff and stabs Polyphemus in the eye. The other Cyclopes hear Polyphemus' cries and they ask why, Polyphemus responds with "Nobody has blinded me!", so the Cyclopes go back to bed.
  • Odysseus ties himself and his men to the bellies of Odysseus' sheep and they escape the cave when Polyphemus lets the sheep out.
  • The sheep carry Odysseus and his men to their boat, and Odysseus yells out his name to Polyphemus, who then asks his father, Poseidon, to curse Odysseus.
