Storyboard Text

  • The kid was in the street, throwing rocks at a kitten on the opposite fence.
  • 'That will cost the old man an extra five hundred dollars,' says Bill, climbing over the wheel.
  • 'Red Chief,' says I to the kid, 'would you like to go home?' 'Aw, what for?' says he. 'I don't have any fun at home. I hate to go to school. I like to camp out. You won't take me back home again, Snake-eye, will you?'
  • Red Chief was sitting on Bill's chest, with one hand twined in Bill's hair. In the other he had the sharp case-knife we used for slicing bacon; and he was industriously and realistically trying to take Bill's scalp, according to the sentence that had been pronounced upon him the evening before.
  • Bill and I got paper and pencil and worked on the letter whilke Red Chief, with a blanket wrapped around him, strutted up and down, guarding the mouth of the cave. Bill begged me tearfully to make the ransom fifteen hundred dollars instead of two thousand.
  • You bring Johnny home and pay me two hundred and fifty dollars in cash, and I agree to take him off your hands... Sam, says he, what's two hundred and fifty dollars, after all?
