Storyboard Text

  • Do you think you can say that twice and not pay for it?
  • I say that you are the murderer you are searching for.
  • Sister, your husband, Oedipus, claims the right to inflict dreadful punishments on me.
  • Exactly. Jocasta, I caught him in a treacherous plot against my life.
  • Listen to her, King Oedipus...I beg you.
  • In God's name, Oedipus, believe what he says.
  • O God! I think I have just called down on myself a dreadful curse--not knowing what I did.
  • [Laius] was a big man--his hair had just begun to turn white. And he had more or less the same build as you.
  • When a plotter moves against me in speed and secrecy, than I too must be quick to counterplot.
  • That is good advice, my lord, for anyone who wants to avoid mistakes. Quick decisions are not the safest.
  • Given time you will realize all this without fail: time alone reveals the just man--the unjust you can recognize in one short day.
  • Oh, [Creon] keeps his own lips clear of responsibility--he sent a prophet to speak for him.
  • Don't pay any attention to prophecies. If God seeks or needs anything, he will easily make it clear to us himself.
  • I am ready to do anything to help. I would be insensitive to pain, if I felt no pity for my people...
  • There is a blight on the crops of the land, on the ranging herds of cattle, on the stillborn labor of our women. The fever-god swoops down on us, hateful plague, he hounds the city and empties the houses of Thebes.
