The society in this story is equal. "Nobody was smarter than anyone else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else..." . And all of this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th amendments. " And all of this was due to Increasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General". Although everyone was exactly the same, George and Hazel have some differences. "Hazel had perfectly average intelligence which meant she couldn't think about anything except in short bursts. And George had a little mental handicap." pages 4-5
the rising action occurs when a "news bulletin" interrupts a television program featuring ballerinas and ends when Diana Moon Glampers kills Harrison. "There was a shriek of a door being toor off its hinges. Screams and barking cries of consternation came from the television set.

" Harrison tore the straps of his handicap harness like wet tissue paper, tore straps guaranteed to support five thousand pounds" . Pages 8-9.
So what happened?
the climax is when Harrison removes his handicaps on live television and dares to reveal to the world how he looks before the government tried to make him "equal".

The falling action of this story occurs when George goes to get a beer and does not seem to know what happened. Hazel, his mom knew the whole thing but some how she could not remember either. "George came back with another beer, paused while a handicap signal shook him up. And then sat down again. 'You've been crying?' he said to Hazel. 'Yup," she said. 'What about?' he said. 'I forget,' she said. 'Something real sad on television.'" page 12.
The resolution is when Hazel and George say, "That one was a doozy". And it ends in a way that nothing really happened because everyone forgot about it. Everyone goes back to their normal life not remembering anything. pg. 12
