  • HELEN! I thought the doctor said it was just acute congestion!
  • Helen? Helen? HELEN!!! HELEN!!! HELP CAPTAIN!!!!!
  • Trying to see if she's ticklish?
  • D-O-L-L, Doll.
  • After Helen's diagnosed "acute congestion" passes, Kate discovers that Helen can't hear or see, and calls for Captain Keller. In the next scene, Helen is six. She is deaf and blind, and Aunt Ev suggests to Captain that he should send a letter to doctor Anagnos. Anagnos sends Annie to the Keller household and she meets Helen at the house.
  • No Helen, you can't finger-spell with me and Percy!
  • Please Stop!
  • Miss Annie, it's her homecoming, just let it go.
  • Annie meets Helen at the front porch. She gives Helen a doll and finger spells doll into her hand. James doesn't believe that Annie can teach Helen, but Annie does not care and is stubborn. Frankly, James wants everyone to stop worrying about Helen and give him some attention. Soon, Annie has gotten settled, but finds that Helen's parents have spoiled her badly, which makes her hard to teach. One morning, Helen is going through and touching everybody's food, but Annie refuses, which leads to the next scene.
  • ..........
  • Father, she is right, and you are wrong. Let her go. Can't you see for once that you might be wrong?
  • I am taking Helen to fill the pitcher she splashed on me!
  • Annie tries to make Helen eat with a spoon and to get her to fold her napkin. This leads to Helen repeatedly getting up from her seat to escape, and Annie having to put her back in her seat. Helen also throws her spoon on the ground repeatedly, and Annie has to get it and put it back in her hand. Eventually through hard hours of work and stubbornness, Annie is able to make Helen eat with a spoon and fold her napkin. After the battle, the room is a mess. There are broken plates and food everywhere. After the battle, Captain wants Annie gone, but Kate wants her to stay because she got Helen to fold her napkin. Keller agrees to let Annie stay, but Annie says she needs to be away from the house to teach Helen. So, they go to the garden house next door. But, Captain and Annie both agree that she only has two weeks with Helen.
  • Yes, I did it! I taught you a name! MRS.KELLER! CAPTAIN KELLER!
  • Wah-Wah
  • Helen is afraid of Annie in the Garden House, so Annie finger-spells to Percy. Helen gets jealous when she feels Annie and Percy spelling, and then she lets Annie finger-spell to her. After Annie's two weeks are up, she has already taught Helen how to eat properly, and also act properly. Even though the Keller's are content with the new Helen, Annie feels that she has not done anything with terms of language. When the Keller's have a homecoming party for Helen, she starts to test her limits at home again. She throws her napkin on the ground over, and over.
  • After Annie realizes that Helen is purposely throwing down her napkin, she takes her plate away from her. The Keller's insist that Annie give Helen back her plate, and she does. Then, Captain puts Helen's napkin back around her neck, and she permits it. After that, Helen starts eating with her hands. She puts her hands into Annie's plate, and Annie grabs her wrist. Helen then splashes a water pitcher on Annie. Annie grabs Helen, and then is about to take her to the water pump to refill the pitcher. Kate and Captain start to make excuse for Helen, and then James stands up to his father and tells him that he is wrong and Annie is right. Captain is surprised and lets Annie go in shock. So Annie proceeds to the pump.
  • Annie takes Helen to the pump to refill the pitcher. She has Helen hold the Pitcher under the pump while she pumps it. Helen then realizes an old word. "Wah Wah" She then realizes that everything has a name and starts patting everything, wanting to know its name. The Keller's are overjoyed that Helen now knows the key to communication. Annie is finally content with teaching Helen.
