Storyboard Text

  • Brinker
  • “’Everybody in this place is either a draft-dodging Kraut or a… a…’ […] ‘a nat-u-ral-ist!’ […] ‘I’m giving it up, I’m going to enlist. Tomorrow’” (Knowles 100).
  • Finny
  • "'Ready to sign up?' [Brinker] shouted [...] 'You ready to en--Finny!' 'You ready to en--what?' pursued Finny [...] 'I said,' Brinker began in an unusually guarded voice, quickly glancing at Phineas, 'I said something about enlisting today'" (Knowles 106-107).
  • Gene
  • "Holding firmly to the trunk, I took a step toward him, and then my knees bent and I jounced the limb" (Knowles 59-60).
  • After clearing the train tracks off from the snow and ice, Brinker and Gene, and the other Devon kids, saw a train filled with people who were recruited for the war. Brinker became a leader after seeing the train pass by; he decided to enlist. He encouraged Gene to also enlist.
  • Leper
  • "'In here you never wonder what's going to happen. You know the meals will come in three times a day for instance'" (Knowles 142).
  • He has an injured leg. He has everyone following him. He is a leader. He also lost hope for a short amount of time because he can no longer do sports because of his leg. When Brinker and Gene mentioned enlisting he said he had to take a shower. They decided against enlisting because Finny seemed to want them to stay at Devon, and enlisting was a dumb idea.
  • Finny's Dr.
  • "'Finny's better!' [...] 'He could stand a visitor or two now, after these very nasty few days'" (Knowles 63).
  • Gene has episodes of where he is mad at Finny and wants to get him back for something. But, also wants to be Finny's friend. Gene has masks, and sometimes doesn't know what he does.
  • Quackenbush
  • Is paranoid, and crazy. He likes to be in the dining room because he knows for a fact that he will get 3 meals a day. He likes to know something, he doesn't like the unpredictability.
  • The Dr. notifies Gene that Finny will never be able to play sports again. He seems to like to notify the people that will help his patient recover, and be there for them.
  • Has a plan to go to Military Academy (V-12), and to go into dentistry school if the military doesn't work out. He seems to always be a step a head, and always have a Plan B if Plan A goes awry.
  • "Quackenbush, I heard, had two possible appointments to the Military Academy, with carefully prepared positions in V-12 and dentistry school to fall back on if necessary" (Knowles 159).
