Storyboard Text

  • Philoprogenitiveness, says we, is strong in semi-rural communities; therefore, and for other reasons, a kidnapping project ought to do better there.
  • We selected for our victim the only child of a prominent citizen named Ebenezer Dorset.
  • Hey, little boy! Would you like to have a bag of candy and a nice ride?
  • It ain't human for anybody to give up two thousand dollars for that 40-pound chunk of freckled wildcat.
  • Bill and I got a paper and pencil and worked on the letter to Dorset.
  • No man ever yet struck Red Chief but he got paid for it. You better beware!
  • This little he-ewe lamb has somewhat got on my nerves too. We'll take him home, pay the ransom, and make our getaway.
  • Sam, what's two hundred and fifty dollars, after all?
  • How long can you hold him?
  • I'm not as strong as I used to be, but I think I can promise you ten minutes.
  • And as dark as it was, and as fat as Bill was, and as good a runner as I am, he was a good mile and a half out of Summit before I could catch up with him.
