Storyboard Text

  • "...hunt through ash cans for unburned coal, and search through empty lots for pieces of wood.... 'I'm not a thief. I'm not a thief. It's only dirt to them. And it's fire to us'" (7-8).
  • I'm not a thief.
  • "'Herring- herring! Two cents apiece'" (22)!
  • Look what I earned!
  • "And throwing the fifty pennies..., I cried, 'Now will you yet call me crazy-head? Give only a look what 'Blood-and-iron' has done'" (23).
  • Sush!
  • Sarah's family is so poor that they depend on other people's trash to provide them with heat and light. This scene describes how Sarah feels torn about going through other peoples ash cans because that is wrong to do, but she convinces herself it is trashed by the owners.
  • "'...When a girl like mine leaves the house the father gets poorer, not richer. It's not enough to take my Bessie without a dowry'"(47).
  • I don't need to pay you to have her!
  • Yes you do, I need money to live!
  • Sarah shows her need to be independent of her father by going out on her own and selling herring to the local people. She wants to work hard for the bigger picture and not depend on every last penny like her father.
  • "'My will is as strong as yours. I'm going to live my own life. Nobody can stop me. I'm not from the old country. I'm American'" (138)!
  • I'm not suffering like my sisters did!
  • Coming back home after selling the herring Sarah shows how she isn't dependent on them for money, but the father is dependent on the daughters income. This causes frustration from the father because it shows his volunerability, while Sarah has the capability to be an independent American girl.
  • "The lid shut down... 'Never shall we see her face again. Never, never'"(255)!
  • I'm sorry I wasn't around mom!
  • The father is afraid of losing Bessie because she is the hardest working daughter and he depends on her. He believes that if he is dependent on her incomes now, then he should be awarded money for giving her to another man. This idea is not thought of in America because it doesn't do anyone good to be dependent on others for everything.
  • Sarah is finally fed up with her father controlling everyone's life because he can not support himself, therefore she stands up for what she believes in and moves out. Making this decision she becomes the independent American women she always wanted to be and not trapped like her sisters.
  • Leave, no daughter of mine will disrespect me!
  • When the mother passes away from an illness all the daughters realized how much they were dependent on her and every act of love that she conducted. The father, on the other hand, has already moved on to another woman who he can depend on as his future caretaker.
  • No!
