Odysseus some of his remaining men stab the cyclops in the eye. After they escape the cave, Odysseus reveals that he was not Nohbdy, but actually Odysseus. The cyclops throws boulders as Odysseus yells at him, but they escape.
"Scarce had they drunk when she flew after them with her long stick and shut them in a pigsty - bodies, voices, heads, and bristles, all swinish now, though their minds were still unchanged (Homer 1125)."

"My quiet Penelope-how well I know-would seem a shade before your majesty, death and old age being unknown to you, while she must die (Homer 1108)."
"And all this time, in trevail, sobbing, gaining on the current, we rowed into the strait-Scylla to port and on our starboard beam Charybdis, dire gorge of the salt sea tide (Homer 1135)."
