  • I'll write the man, Katie.
  • She wants to talk like- be like you and me . Everyday she slips further away and i don't know how to call her back
  • You Devil. You think i'm so easily gotten rid of? You have a thing or two to learn, first. I have nothing else to do. And nowhere to go.
  • Helen was 19 months old when the doctor diagnosed her with acute congestion. After the doctor left her mother Kate Keller realized that Helen couldn't see or hear her because she saw her blank expression. Kate screamed and Helen's father, Arthur Keller came running they found out that that her acute congestion left her blind and deaf . At six years of age Helen is animalistic and her parent spoil her rotten. Her parents believe that because of her disability she needs pity and coddling
  • Two weeks? Miss Annie can you accomplish anything in two weeks?
  • When Helen was six and a half years old her parents were debating whether or not to write to the Perkins institute for help teaching Helen. They have tried several doctors before hand and all of them proved to be ineffective. After Helen's Aunt Ev recommended it to them they finally wrote to them. Annie Sullivan was sent to help teach Helen, she was young, inexperienced and was partially blind herself
  • Two weeks. For only one miracle? I'll get her to tolerate me.
  • Anything or not, two weeks, then the child comes back to us. Make up your mind, Miss Sullivan, yes or no.
  • During Annie's first day of teaching Helen, Helen locks Annie in her room and runs off with the key. The Keller's find Helen but discovers that she has hidden the key somewhere else. After failing to find the key, Captain Keller carries Annie down through her window. After Annie gets out of her room she goes and sees Helen sitting by the pump outside the house. Helen begins groping around to feel if anyone is nearby. Annie avoids her grasp and Helen pulls the key out of her mouth and drops it into the pump. Helen now thinks that she has gotten rid of Annie, and Annie realizes how smart Helen really is.
  • Wah. Wah. Wah. Wah.
  • Yes! Yes! oh my dear-
  • The Keller's and Annie were in the dining room when Annie noticed that her family let Helen eat off of their plates and roam around the table. When Helen reached Annie's plate, Annie threw her hand off and began eating again. Helen again reaches over for her plate and again she removes her hand. Helen becomes enraged and confused, and the Keller's tell her that she always eats off of their plates. Annie asks The Keller's to leave the dining room so she can teach her how to eat off of her own plate and with a spoon. After the Keller's leave Helen and Annie get into a fight, food gets thrown everywhere and the dining room is a mess, but Annie got Helen to eat with a spoon and fold her napkin.
  • Annie asks the Keller's to use their garden house to take Helen to as a place to teach her. Annie believes that if she takes Helen to an environment where her family can't interfere that she can get through to Helen and teach her better. Captain Keller gives in and gives Annie two weeks to get Helen to tolerate her and teach her.
  • After two weeks at the garden house all Annie has taught Helen is discipline, The Keller's are satisfied but Annie is not. Annie wanted to teach Helen that things have a name. The Keller's take Helen back and at Helen's returning dinner she begins testing Annie and her parents. She repeatedly drops her napkin and refuses to eat with a spoon. Her and Annie get into another fight and Helen ends up throwing the water from the pitcher onto Annie. Annie drags Helen to the pump and forces her to fill the pitcher up again. When Helen feels the water on her hand Annie finger spells water into her hand. Helen finally understands and says Wah wah as a way of saying water. Helen begins feeling around and motioning for Annie to spell what she is touching into her hand. Annie calls for Mr. and Mrs. Keller. Helen learns to call her mother, mother her father, papa and Annie, teacher
