Ok let's do it. Except we can bring him here until we get the money.
Hey Bill! Let's kidnap old Dorset's kid. That way we can get money for the ransom
Keep the kid busy while I go mail the ransom note.
You better be back soon. I can't take much more
Where is the kid?
Well in Dorset's letter he wants money for the kid.
Don't worry he is right behind you.
Let's just pay the money he is driving me insane!
I let him go. He was driving me insane.
This is the exposition because this is when they discuss about kidnapping Johnny. So we're learning what they will do to kidnap Johnny.
Bye Old Hank!
This is is a rising action because the plan that Sam and Bill made is starting to come together.
I guess that didn't work.
Let's never do that again.
This si the climax because they decide to pay the money. Which means that the are starting to transition into the falling action.
This is the falling action because they are returning and by doing so they are getting rid of the problem. Which leads to the resolution.
Here is the rest of the money.
Thank you gentlemen. I advise you be on your way. I saw nothing.
This is the resolution because they are done with there plan and they fled. Which is the end of the story.
The theme is crime doesn't pay. The reason it is because of the immense suffering that Johnny and the crime brought upon them. In the text it states, "They ended up paying two hundred fifty dollars. " This shows that they suffered because they lost their money because of the crime. Another piece of evidence is, "Bill had almost gone insane." This shows that the the theme is crime doesn't pay because Bill had almost gone insane.
