Storyboard Text

  • Harrison Bergeron
  • The year was 2081, and everybody was finally equal. They weren't only equal before God and the law. They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter than everybody else. Nobody was better looking than every body else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than everybody else. 
  • All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General.
  • George and Hazel were watching television. There were tears on Hazel's cheeks, but she'd forgotten for the what they were about.
  • Yup
  • That was a real pretty dance, that dance they just did.
  • Harrison plucked the mental handicap from her ear, snapped off her physical handicaps with marvelous delicacy. Last of all he removed her mask. She was blindingly beautiful.
  • Now, shall we show the people the meaning of the word dance? Music!
  • It was then that Diana Moon Glampers, the Handicapper General, came into the studio with a double-barreled ten-gauge shotgun. She fired twice, and the Emperor and the Empress were dead before they hit the floor.
  • There was the sound of a rivetting gun in his head.
  • You can say that again.
  • Ra ta ta ta
  • Gee- I could tell that one was a doozy.
  • The End
  • Gee- I could tell that one was a doozy.
