Storyboard Text

  • The truth about a society is often kept a secret
  • "Didn't firemen prevent fires rather than stoke themup and get them going?" (pg 16)
  • "Established, 1790, to burn English-influenced books in the Colonies. First Fireman: Benjamin Franklin." (pg 16)
  • Dehumanizing other citizens
  • "I notice your husbands aren't here tonight?" (pg 45)
  • "How're your children, Mrs. Phelps?" (pg 45)
  • "You know I haven't any! No one in his right mind, the Good Lord knows; would have children!" (pg 45) 
  • "No use going through all that agony for a baby." (pg 45)
  • "Oh, they come and go, come and go," (pg 45)
  • In the story, the fireman are told that the whole purpose of a fireman has always been to burn books and start fires, instead of fighting fire. Of course, this is not true. Other lies were told to the people of this society as well, including the notion that books were dangerous and drove people against each other.
  • In this scene, Mildred's friends are over. Montag is asking them questions about their families, but their answers give the impression that they don't care at all about their family. The people in this society have lost connections with the people in their lives, and they don't really care about anyone, even their families, as shown here - they seem to almost not see them as human.
