Storyboard Text

  • I am so anxious for my husband to come home. But I know that with each minute gone by he is closer to home. 
  • "Mary Maloney was waiting for her husband to come him from work.Now and again she would glance up at the clock, but without anxiety, merely to please herself with the thought that each minute gone by made it nearer the time when he would come." (Paragraph 1 and 2)
  • "Hullo darling"
  • At this point Mary was in disbelief because her husband has just divorced her. "Her first instinct was not to believe any of it, to reject it all. It occurred to her that perhaps he hadn’t even spoken, that she herself had imagined the whole thing." (Paragraph 35)
  • “This is going to be a bit of a shock to you, I’m afraid,” he said. “But I’ve thought about it a good deal and I’ve decided the only thing to do is tell you right away. I hope you won’t blame me too much.”
  • You wont leave me
  • "At that point, Mary Maloney simply walked up behind him and without any pause she swung the big frozen leg of lamb high in the air and brought it down as hard as she could on the back of his head." She then put the leg of lamb in the oven to cook.
