Storyboard Text

  • On his way to collect money from a widow, a summoner crosses paths with a yeoman. When asked by the yeoman if he is a bailiff, the summoner says he is out of shame for his true profession. They form a sort of a brotherhood and travel to the widow's place together.
  • Yes, I am
  • Are you a bailiff?
  • In the midst of conversation, the yeoman reveals to the summoner that he is actually a devil. The summoner is not phased by this claim and they continue on their way.
  • Cool
  • I am a fiend, my dwelling is in hell
  • Later on in their journey, they run into a carter whose horses and cart full of hay were stuck in the mud. The carter exclaims that the devil can take the horses, the cart, and the hay yet the devil does not take them. The summoner questions him and he explains that since the carter did not mean what he said, it was not his place to take the cart or its contents.
  • The devil take all--horses, cart, and hay!
  • He doesn't mean it
  • They arrive to the widow's place and before approaching her, the summoner informs the devil that even though he is unaware of any wrongdoings that the widow has committed, he is still capable of getting a decent amount of money from her.
  • Watch and learn
  • After failing to convince the widow that she owed him money, the summoner threatens to take her brand-new pan from her. The widow then condemned both the summoner and her pan to hell. 
  • Pay me or I'll take away your pan!
  • The devil can take you and my pan!
  • I guess you're coming with me
  • The devil took the summoner and the widow's pan to hell.
