Storyboard Text

  • The story opens describing the cold and wet setting. It also states that Mr. White and his son were playing chess and Mr. White made a bad move that cost him the game.
  • "Check."
  • "Mate."
  • "I'd like to go to India myself. What was it you were telling me the other day, Morris?"
  • "The monkey's paw."
  • "I am Sergeant-Major Morris. 21 years of service in the military."
  • "If you must wish, wish for something sensible."
  • "The paw itself is dangerous. There was a man who had it before I did. I don't know what his first two wishes were, but his last wish was to die. My best bet is to throw it in the fire."
  • "I'll take the paw. don't throw it in the fire."
  • Mr. White wishes for 200 pounds. As Sergeant-Major Morris said, the wishes will seem like fate. The wish was selfish so the death of their son caused Mr. White and his wife grief.
  • "Your son is badly hurt, but he is not in any pain. He was caught in the machinery. We wish to present you with 200 pounds as compensation."
  • "Please wish for our son back!"
  • About a week later, the wife wants her son back, but the son's body is decayed. The wife doesn't understand this though.
  • "Fine."
  • The husband is afraid to see his son, so before his wife opens the door, he wishes for his son to be dead again. Be careful what you wish for.
