In the beginning of Harrison Bergeron, George and Hazel were both watching a dance on T.V. Both of them were talking about the dance, and then George's mental handicap cut him short of being able to really think, he would always wince in pain, consternation would really ever occur for only a few seconds. The story states, "George was toying with the vague notion that maybe dancers shouldn't be handicapped. But he didn't get very far with it before another noise in his ear radio scattered his thoughts" (Vonnegut 4-5). This quote shows how society is and what George and Hazel had to go through, only when watching T.V.
In the rising action, while George and Hazel were watching T.V., some ballerina's who were busy synchronizing dancing, made a call out saying that a dangerous man had escaped prison. As she finished her words, many people cowered in fear of him. Their son, Harrison, appeared on the screen. He was the dangerous guy that had escaped from prison, and he was there to try to tell society that what the government is doing is not right. "My God- that must be Harrison. Th realization was blasted rom his mind instantly by the sound of an automobile collision in his head" (Vonnegut 9).
The climax of Harrison Bergeron is when Harrison starts to take all of his handicap equipment off and starts speaking about how he wanted the laws to change. The ballerina and Harrison began to dance, they were leaping into the air. They kissed the ceiling, and they soon kissed each other. "nd then, neutralizing gravity with love and pure will, they remained suspended in air inches below the ceiling, and they kissed each other for a long, long time" (Vonnegut 11).
In the falling action, with careful vigilance, the handicapper general, Diana Moon Glampers, comes into the T.V. studio. She soon shoots both Harrison and the ballerina. The handicapper general killed them both before he could get his message out to the world. "It was then Diana Moon Glampers, came into the studio with a double barreled ten gauge shotgun. She fired twice, and the Emperor and Empress were dead before they hit the floor" (Vonnegut 11).
After Harrison was killed, Hazel was upset, and George had just come back from getting beer. Hazel was crying about it, but soon forgot because of the handicap piece. George forgot as well, they had no idea of what had just occurred, it all felt neutralized. "You been crying? he said to Hazel. Yup, I forget what it was about. It's all kind of mixed up in my mind. said Hazel" (Vonnegut 12).
