Storyboard Text

  • Even though you're my teacher and all, I feel like we should give this a chance.
  • ...Um, sure.
  • I've learned Italian, Spanish, German, Swedish, and more. What about you?
  • This isn't about to work.
  • We should create a petition to get him fired.
  • You know what, you don't even to have to get me fired because I QUIT!
  • Charlie has to start studying to get up to speed, and luckily Ms. Kinnian is around to offer assistance. Charlie is also seeing Ms. Kinnian in a different light. He asks her out on a date, and she accepts. 
  • Oh no, this is tragic.
  • Charlie's IQ has tripled and is now at 210. He's spewing out words left and right that Alice, also known as Ms. Kinnian, doesn't know. So, she feels very uncomfortable talking to Charlie, and decides their relationship isn't going to function right.
  • The next day at work, Charlie was very upset when he figured out that his old friends, Joe and Frank, were trying to get him fired because he was no longer any fun because of his intelligence. He leaves to New York, and notices his intelligence depleting.
  • Where did I go wrong?
  • Charlie soon discovers the fatal flaw in the experiment that was performed on him and Algernon. Not only does their intelligence deplete, death is a high possibility. When Charlie discovers this, writes a book called "The Algernon-Gordon Effect". He notices that he is regressing himself, and is becoming sad and angry.
  • Charlie's conclusion about death were right, and he buried Algernon in his backyard to commemorate his mousy friend. He decides to move back, but he can only think about what is soon to happen to him.
  • Charlie moved back, but has not returned to his old job, for he cannot bear to see his old co-workers. Charlie reflects on when he was a genius, and thinks about how much he loved it. He now lives in the state-sponsored Warren Home School, where no one knows about his past.
