  • Opening / Exposition
  • TIME SAFARI, INC. SAFARIS TO ANY YEAR IN THE PAST. YOU NAME THE ANIMAL. WE TAKE YOU THERE. YOU SHOOT IT.
  • Inciting Incident
  • Whoosh
  • Whir
  • Crackle!
  • Rising Action
  • It's as big as a skyscraper!
  • A man named Eckels goes inside the Time Safari Inc. There was a presidential election, where President Keith was just elected. He walks up to the desk and buys a ticket to go hunting for a dinosaur by Time Machine. Eckels takes the ticket and it whispers promises of an exciting journey. 
  • Climax
  • Roar! 
  • After getting his ticket, Eckels meets Travis, the Safari Guide. Travis leads him to the Time Machine with two other hunters and shows them inside. The Time Machine jerks and spins like a roller coaster. They soon arrive in the jungle 60 million years in the past, and Travis warns them not to step off the path.
  • Falling Action
  • "I'm warning you, Eckels, I might kill you yet."
  • They walk along the path and then see their target: A gigantic T-Rex! Eckels becomes a quivering leaf, terrified by the T-Rex, and says that it can't be killed. He's so scared that he steps off the path. He doesn't even realize that he stepped on a butterfly.
  • Resolution
  • TYME SEFARI INC. SEFARIS TU ANY YEER EN THE PAST. YU NAIM THE ANIMALL. WEE TAEK YU THAIR. YU SHOOT ITT.
  • Deutscher is an iron man!
  • When the T-Rex comes closer, it lunges forward at the men. They shoot the dinosaur, and it roars loudly. The guns' angry shouts tear through the quiet jungle. Then the T-Rex falls to the ground. A tree groans and crashes on top of it, killing it, just like it was going to happen.
  • Boom!
  • Crack!
  • After seeing the T-Rex die, Travis and the men go back inside the Time Machine and clean their clothes. Travis yells at Eckels, very upset that he stepped off of the path. Travis' angry glare is a furnace as he tells Eckels that he might kill him if the future is any different. 
  • The men arrive back at the Time Safari Inc. but it feels strange. Eckels notices that the spelling on the sign changed. Filled with panic, he picks off a tiny butterfly that was stuck on his boot. He asks the man at the desk who won the presidential election. He answers, "Deutscher, of course!" the other man that was a harsh dictator. Eckels is horrified. 
  • NO!
