Storyboard Text

  • "Like father, like daughter: both headstrong, deaf to reason! She has never learned to yield. She has much to learn. The inflexible heart breaks first, the toughest iron Cracks first, and the wildest horses bend their necks At the pull of the smallest curb. Pride? In a slaveThis girl is guilty of a double insolence, Breaking the given laws and boasting of it. Who is the man here, She or I, if this crime goes unpunished?
  • "As long as I am King, no traitor is going to be honored with the loyal man."
  • Yet there are other men "Who can reason, too; and their opinions might be helpful. You are not in a position to know everything That people say or do, or what they feel"
  • "This boy, it seems, has sold out to the woman. ...Then she is not a criminal?"
  • "It is no city if it takes orders from one voice...if you are a woman; my concern is only for you."
  • Creon believes that men easily control others, and being stubborn only makes breaking people much more easily and effectively. Yet before he had stated that he would act for good of the state.
  • ...and those are my personal findings on zoos. They suck!
  • Haemon points out that being flexible can even be life-saving, instead of only ruling how he sees fit and not listening to the needs of those he's supposed to be ruling for.
  • But don't they help tremendously with biology and all sorts of cures and stuff?
  • Oh true, he didn't mention any of that or any counter-arguments of any kind.
  • No. that's utterly outrageous, and if any of you certainly believe that, you're getting an F for the entirety of the semester, capiche?
  • Creon wonders if his son has been seduced or otherwise convinced by feminine wiles that he must speak out for her instead of with his fathers interests. The power of kingship has given Creon a false sense of patriotism, one that is clearly seen by the way that Creon abuses his power and does't listen to the city he's supposed to be serving.
  • Only natural that you girls would believe that! In fact, since the rest of my guys haven't said anything against me, they're going to have A;s for days, while the rest of you can just drop out now!
  • You can't just leave that out of the lesson, it's a fundamental part of every zoo! They're very necessary to all sorts of sciences!
  • Abuses of both power and gender: he reports his personal beliefs about zoos to his class, something they hadn't heard from him before.
  • The only two girls in his class speak out about at least a counter-argument or some major benefit that he in fact never actually touched upon in any way.
  • They do help with cancer research and understanding niches and all sorts of biological fields.
  • Because he was feeling as though they were trying to start something because he was right and they couldn't accept it, he threatened anyone who sided with them terrible grades, yet gave all the boys A's because it had only been the two girls to speak out so far, before he cut them off with the threat of failing.
  • So, just because the only two girls in here have pointed out something that you have no argument for, you're kicking us out? The only reason the rest of us haven't said anything is because you just threatened us with F's!
