Storyboard Text

  • 'Exactly as at the end of Act Two. Eric is standing just inside the room and the others are staring at him.'
  • 'Yes, we know.'
  • '(distressed) Eric, I can't believe it. There must be some mistake. You don't know what we've been saying.'
  • 'You know, don't you?'
  • '(bitterly) You haven't made it any easier for me have you, mother?'
  • 'But I didn't know it was you – I never dreamt.'
  • '(explosively) No.'
  • '(turning to Eric.) Now then.'
  • '(firmly) Yes. (As Birling looks like interrupting explosively.) I know – he's your son and this is your house – but look at him. He needs a drink now just to see him through.'
  • '(miserably) could I have a drink first?'
  • 'One night last November.'
  • 'In the palace bar. I'd been there an hour or so with two or three chaps. I was a bit squiffy.''I began talking to her, and stood her a few drinks. I was rather far gone by the time we had to go.''I was in that state when a chap easily turns nasty – and I threatened to make a row.'
  • 'Yes. And that's when it happened. And I didn't even remember – that's the hellish thing. Oh – my God! - how stupid it all is!'
  • 'So she let you in?'
  • '(with a cry) Oh – Eric – how could you?'
