Storyboard Text

  • Phineas and His assistant
  • The Accident        
  • Post-Accident
  • Phineas is the foreman of the train track building crew. His job is blasting the rock away to make tracks in mountains.
  • In Town
  • One day, right before exploding the rock, Phineas got distracted. He looked away from the rock he was getting ready to blast when- BOOM! His rod went shooting through his head! 
  • Being Treated
  • He'll live!
  • Phineas went unconsious for a few minutes.  Then, he got up and started talking to his men. They put him in a cart and started driving him the three-quarters of a mile to town. They sent one man ahead to get the doctor ready.
  • Okay but Different
  • When they got to town, the doctor met them. He told them to put him in the hospital.
  • There was nothing the doctor could do, but take bits of metal out and put a bandage on it.
  • Phineas lived for another eleven years after his accident. But he had a different attitude.  He was rude and unhappy all the time.
  • 1. Excuse me.
