Odysseus comes of with a plot to escape from the Cyclops, firstly he gave he Cyclops liquor to get him drunk. "Here's liquor to wash down your scraps of men. Taste it, and see the kind of drink we carried under our planks." "Drunk, hiccuping, he dribbled streams fo liquor and bits of men."
Odysseus comes up with a plan to escape the Cyclops by stabbing him in the eye. "The pike of olive, green though it had been, reddened and glowed as if about to catch. I drew it from the coals and my four fellows 330 gave me a hand, lugging it near the Cyclops as more than natural force nerved them; straight forward they sprinted, lifted it, and rammed it deep in his crater eye."
From having good thinking skills Odysseus helped himself and his men escape from the Cyclops and take his sheep and rams. " And I was filled with laughter to see how like a charm the name deceived them. Now Cyclops, wheezing as the pain came on him, fumbled to wrench away the great doorstone and squatted in the breach with arms thrown wide for any silly beast or man who bolted— hoping somehow I might be such a fool."
