A seemingly depressed man is alone with his thoughts in the bathroom.

Storyboard Text

  • Antithesis.
  • I need to do this. I feel worthless while full of life, naive while aware of it, deaf with negative voices in my head.
  • Isocolon.
  • I have towels just like these in MY bathroom! How funny.
  • No, but I'm a strong individual and I am a well-liked individual. Hopefully people will understand.
  • Anastrophe, euphemism, personification, assonance.
  • I can fix not what is broken; I'll unplug my charger cord and watch my battery die.
  • My man, don't do it! I can't go through it! Cyan? Whoa, dude it's a bold move like an old nudist!
  • We open in the restroom of a good friend's house during a party. Our sad man makes his plight known, but it's in his head so only we know.
  • Metaphor, irony, parenthesis.
  • Don't, after spending a lifetime using me to rid your body of useless weight, flush your life down the drain!
  • He provides himself with a supportive argument in favor of doing it, then gets temporarily side-tracked seeing the same towels he has in his bathroom in this bathroom.
  • Parallelism.
  • I can do it quietly and discreetly or I can do it loudly to seek attention.
  • He doubts his ability to solve his problem and alludes to his later intentions, and the toilet spits some fire out of no where; it's pretty surprising considering toilets aren't supposed to do that.
  • Pun, sarcasm, epithet.
  • Good idea saying that out-loud.
  • I've edited videos; I'll just apply the "fade out" effect to myself.
  • He uses a very clever analogy with a video editing technique, then the toilet speaks up again, this time with a toilet-based metaphor regarding wasting human life like excrement.
  • Our sad man, seeming to have made his decision, weighs his options; the toilet will not pipe down. I agree; the talking toilet thing is a little annoying at this point, but I promise it is relevant to the premise.
  • I'll know either way!!!!
  • Our man reveals his true contextual meaning in, we can only imagine, a quite uncomfortable voice; he accidentally says this instead of thinking it, and chastises himself mentally afterward. This makes you wonder, if people could hear him say that, did they also hear the toilet's many verbal interjections??? Also, to his utter bewilderment, his shirt changed color when the textbox in the fourth square covered it. Talk about continuity errors!
  • You're right, trustworthy toilet; like a gypsy protester with a sign, I'm gonna hold it until I get home. Also, my shirt's white now.
