Storyboard Text

  • "You know, don't you?" - Eric Birling Subsequent tot he curtain upon the preceding act, Eric enters the house, hence leading to his place in the suicide being inquired into: Eric conveys to the Inspector his intimate affair with Eva Smith, therefore prompting Mrs. Birling and Sheila to leave the room... it was conceived that women should not hear of such issues, especially when such a lady of 'low class and stature' was involved.  As a consequence of Eric stealing money from his father, he bestowed it to Eva, hence investing in a relationship, upon which they shared.
  • "Just used her for some drunken evening, as if she was an animal, not a person." - Inspector Goole Upon ascertaining the rising tension between Eric and Mr. Birling, Mrs. Birling and Sheila come back into the room, therefore leading to Mr. Birling to impart upon what was said - although Mrs. Birling does not intervene at first, Mr. Birling becomes increasingly malevolent towards his son, leading to her cutting in.  Enthralled with emasculation and pressure from his father, Eric 'explodes', highlighting the gender issues and tension from class, encompassing the fact he show greater adoration of Gerald.
  • "But each of you helped to kill her. Remember that. Never forget it." - Inspector Goole
  • "We do not live alone. We are all members of one body. We are all responsible for each other." - Inspector Goole
  • "...if men will not learn that lesson, then they will be taught in fire and blood and anguish. Good night." - Inspector Goole [He walks straight out, leaving them staring, subdued and wondering.}
  • "...there are millions and millions and millions of Eva and John Smiths, stilled left with us..." - inspector Goole
  • "- but, was he really a police inspector?" - Sheila Birling As a consequence of Inspector Goole's departure, the family begin to reflect upon the circumstances of the evening, hence leading the Birlings to convey the blame onto both Eric and Sheila; Sheila, treated as a childish archetype was rather 'hysterical', and Eric has the potential to desecrate the family's reputation. It is upon the points, that Sheila rouses the idea of Inspector Goole being fake, therefore striking dissent between the characters.
  • [Shouting] "And I say the girl's dead and we all helped to kill her - and that's what matters -" - Eric Birling Subsequent to the conflict between the family, Gerald Croft returns to the Birling household, therefore introducing news to the family - Gerald conveyed an inquiry to the police force, establishing the inspector as fake, hence denigrating the impact upon Mr. and Mrs. Birling's status (not affecting the culpability of Sheila and Eric however). As a consequence of this, Mr. Birling goes on to phone the infirmary,therefore disproving the suicide; this manifests the ideals that Gerald is manipulative and 'class-bearing', as he dismisses the concept of Eva Smith's existence...
  • "That was the police. A girl just died - on her way to the Infirmary - after swallowing some disenfectant. And a police inspector is on his way here - to ask some - questions -" - Mr. Birling [As they stare guiltily and dumbfounded, the curtain falls]               End of Play...
  • [Passionately] "You're pretending everything's just as it was before." - Sheila Birling
  • "...I remember what he said, how he looked, and what he made me feel. Fire and blood and anguish." - Sheila Birling
  • "They're over-tired. In the morning they'' be as amused as we are." - Mrs. Birling
  • "So nothing really happened. So there's nothing to be sorry for, nothing to learn. We can all go on behaving as we did." - Sheila Birling
