  • Exposition
  • My ancestors ain't apes!!!
  • Down with Darwin!!!
  • Conflict
  • Modern children must be taught the truth of Darwin.
  • Will I ever be a free man again?
  • Rising Action
  • In God we Trust
  • As Mathew Harrison Brady gets off the train in Hillsboro Tennessee, he is treated as if he is a prophet. There are songs sung for him, banners thrown up, and even a party for him. All of this a welcome to the town where he will be prosecuting Bertram Cates.
  • Climax
  • In God we Trust
  • As Brady receives a warm welcome, the man who created this great conflict, Bertram Cates, awaits is unsure fate. He fears the future, but he doesn't regret illegally teaching the writings of Charles Darwin.
  • Falling Action
  • In God we Trust
  • "Oh Lord! Work us a miracle and save our holy Prophet!"
  • Tension begins to rise as Brady constantly hammers Rachel Brown, daughter of the reverend and girlfriend of Cates. She knows she must tell the jury everything she knows, but if the jury finds out what he said to her, he will be crucified (metaphorically). She quickly becomes emotional in attempt to conceal Bert's secret.
  • Resolution
  • In God we Trust
  • The action begins to peak after Henry Drummond is denied the ability to call up his scientific witnesses, so he calls up biblical scholar and experienced lawyer, Mathew Harrison Brady. He begins to question him ferociously on the first four days of creation, making him admit that the those days could've lasted longer than 24 hours. This convinced the jury that Evolution and the Bible could indeed coexist.
  • After winning the case in an embarrassing fashion and being rudely ignored by several citizens, Brady has had enough. Out of nowhere he falls to the ground and is dead within minutes.
  • After being offended by Hornbeck, Drummond reveals that he is more religious than he appeared. He sees both the Holy Bible and Darwin's Origin of Species on the bench, so he grabs both books and puts them in his briefcase. This demonstrates that these two volumes are not contradicting each other, but instead, one may just be an extension of another.
  • Origin of Species
  • Holy Bible
