An Inspector Calls Act 2

Storyboard Text

  • Inspector, i think Miss Birling ought to be excused from any more of this questioning... she's obviously had about as much as she can take.
  • You haven't finished asking questions...so I'm staying.
  • She feels responsible. And if she leaves us now, and doesn't hear any more, then she'll feel she's entirely to blame.
  • Why should you? It's bound to be unpleasant and disturbing.
  • I'm Mrs Birling, y'know. M husband has just explained why your here, and while we'll be glad to tell you anything you want to know, i don't think we can help you much...
  • No, of course not. He's only a boy.
  • I feel your beginning all wrong.
  • And he drinks far too much.
  • Isn't he used to drinking?
  • Mr Croft when did you first get to know her?
  • I met her first some time in March last year, in the bar at the palace...I happened to go down there one night...I didn't intend to stay down there long...I noticed a girl who looked quite different...This girl saw me looking at her and gave me a glance...then i told the girl...she'd better let me take her out of there...
  • We're you in love with her?
  • The Inspector comes back into the room and Gerald tries to get Sheila to leave but she insists on staying...
  • Now, Sheila, I'm not defending him. But you understand that a lot of young men-
  • I think you'd better take this with you...
  • I see. Well, i was expecting this.
  • Mrs Birling comes into the room and introduces herself and explains that Mr Birling was with Eric. Sheila then tells the Inspector how Eric drinks far too much and Gerald agrees with her...
  • First she called herself Mrs Birling... and naturally that was one of the things that prejudiced me against her case...
  • I did nothing i'm ashamed of or that won't bear investigation... I'll tell you what i told her. Go and look for the father of the child. It's his responsibility.
  • Mrs Birling spoke to and saw her only two weeks ago.
  • Was it owing to your influence...that help was refused to the girl?
  • The Inspector then asks Gerald how he knew Daisy Renton and Gerald explains his affair...
  • Mother- I begged you and begged you to stop---
  • 
  • SLAM!
  • Sheila then gives Gerald her engagement ring back and Gerald agrees and decides to go on a walk...
  • Don't interfere, please, Father. Gerald knows what i mean, and you apparently don't.
  • The Inspector then questions Mrs Birling and she explained how she refused to give Eva any help at her charity. The inspector then asks Mrs Birling who is to blame for Eva's death and Mrs Birling blames the father entirely...
  • First, the girl herself...Secondly, i blame the young man...he'd be entirely responsible--- And he'd ought to be dealt with very severely...
  • Who is to blame then?
  • As the Inspector doesn't leave, everyone realises that Eric is involved. The door slams shut as they see Eric enters the room...
  • My God! But look here-
  • I don't believe it. I won't believe it!
