  • Very good Charlie!
  • Charlie is selected for testing. They perform surgery and experiments on his brain. They do this to possibly see if they could make mentally challenged people "normal".
  • I beat Algernon! I am finally smarter than a mouse! 
  • The experiments all go very well. After these experiences they make him race a mouse, Algernon, through a maze. Algernon beats Charlie almost every time, making Charlie wanna be smarter than Algernon.
  • After some more experiments Charlie shows improvement even in school. His teacher Miss Kinnian sees this improvement and starts to work with him outside of class. They become good friends.
  • Charlie finally beats Algernon in a race. This is important to the story because this finally made Charlie feel smart. Even after all his advancements this is the one event that made all the tests worth it.
