Storyboard Text

  • I'm Holden Caulfield and I got real run down from teenage angst and had to come rest for awhile
  • I'll tell you what happened to me a little while ago
  • I was messing up in school anyway, and my parents don't understand so I took off to New York City for the weekend
  • I don't even really know why I feel and act like I do
  • My school was full of phonies and I just felt really bad and sad about how everyone was
  • I spend the night dancing and drinking and eventually get a prostitute (Sunny), but the whole thing makes me feel depressed, so I pay her to go, but get beat up anyway
  • So, I go to New York City, but don't go home and check into a hotel
  • I wake up feeling depressed and call Sally Hayes a girl I grew up with for company. We go to the Christmas Show and skating at Rockafeller Center, but I act like a jerk and don't know why I act that way
  • I feel depressed and sneak home to see my sister Pheobe, I had bought her a record, but I broke it and I'm really just exhausted, I sneak out when my parents get home.
  • I see the ducks in the park and really have a concern for where they go when it gets cold. I also feel an immense sadness for the loss of innocence in children because they do not know how phony the world is yet
  • All I want to do is be "The Catcher in the Rye" and save the little kids from "going over the edge." In reality I mistake the words to the poem, but this only speaks to my own innocence and condition.
  • That's all I want to talk about, end up being sick and needing to go rest for awhile, but you know it turns out I kind of miss some of the people from school. I'm going to start a new school soon, but be careful about telling your own story you might find out you miss things too.
