Storyboard Text

  • let's go onwards to consult the oracle 
  • "He left Thebes to consult the oracle, so he announced" (Pg. 10). The reason for Laius' departure was his quest to go consult the oracle. 
  • "Without telling my parents, I set off on a journey to the oracle of Apollo, at Delphi" (Pg. 45). The explanation for Oedipus' retreat was his mission to visit the oracle of Apollo to ask about his parents.
  • I cant stay, I must know if they are my real parents. If they aren't, who is?
  • "On my way I came to the place in which you say this king, Laius, met his death. I will tell you the truth, all of it. As i journeyed on I came near to this triple crossroad and there I was met by a herald and man riding on a horse-drawn wagon, just as you described it" (Pg. 45). Oedipus and Laius had their first and final encounter on a triple crossroad.
  • No, i cant let that prophecy come true, im not going to be the killer of my father that gave me life... HEY STOP PUSHING ME
  • The original  "I killed the whole lot of them" (Pg. 46). Was changed when Laius' goad actually ends Oedipus' journey instead of Laius and his group being murdered by Oedipus
  • Nice shot, that two pronged goad got him. He wont be paying back any interest any time soon.
  • After Laius and his group consult the oracle they return back to Thebes. Only to discover the Sphinx still there and troubling the city.
  • Is that a Sphinx chanting riddles?!
  • Apollo on Mount Olympus exclaims his frustration when he views how his prophecy he told didn't come true.
  • Well that prophecy didn't work out, at least it wasn't a tragedy
