Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • I wish I could be smart like everyone else.
  • Rising Action
  • I'm so excited, Dr. Strauss! Thank you so much for using me.
  • Are you ready, Charlie?
  • Rising Action
  • I don't feel any smarter. But nobody understands what I'm saying.
  • This is Charlie Gordon. He is a not-quite-average 37-year old man who wants to be like everyone else. Smart. "Their going to use me! Im so excited I can hardly write." Page 2
  • Climax
  • As a part of a lab experiment, Charlie got the chance for an operation to make him smarter. "The operashun dint hurt. He did it while I was sleeping." Page 4
  • Falling Action
  • Bit by bit, Charlie gets smarter, to the point of abnormal conversations and losing his job. "I don't feel intelligent. There are so many things I don't understand." Page 12 
  • Resolution
  • One day, Algernon, a mouse that underwent the same operation, bites Charlie, showing his mental regression, and later dies. "Algernon died two days ago. Dissection shows my predictions were right." Page 18
  • Rest in Peace, Algernon.
  • Charlie starts forgetting things, and losing his coordination, following the same path as Algernon. "I'm forgetting things that I learned recently. It seems to be following the classic pattern-the last things learned are the first things forgotten."
  • Hmmm... What do these mean?
  • Charlie, unfortunately, returns to where he was mentally before the operation. So he leaves it all. "Thats why Im going away from New York for good." "Goodbye Miss Kinnian and Dr Strauss and evreybody." Page 22
