Storyboard Text

  • Holden Caulfield is a sixteen-year-old student at Pencey Academy. However, that is all about to change. He has failed almost all of his classes and has been asked to leave. This is just another expulsion for Holden. He has already been kicked out of several schools. He thinks about this as he watches one of the last football games of the season. 
  • Holden decides to visit his favorite professor, Mr. Spencer, one last time before leaving. Mr. Spencer gives him words of wisdom but it just depresses him further.
  • Holden, you are so bright but you need to start applying yourself in school.
  • Holden goes back to his dorm and goes out to dinner with his friends. When he gets back he gets into a fight with his roommate. He decides that he will leave Pencey that night and stay in New York City for a few days before his parents are notified of his expulsion.
  • While on the train home, Holden meets the mother of one of his classmates. He demonstrates his ability to lie convincingly by telling her how wonderful her son is when in reality he is not a good person. 
  • After checking into the Edmont Hotel, Holden meets three women from Seattle. He likes one woman but he gets depressed because he cannot carry an intelligent conversation. He leaves and goes to another club but is still miserable.
  • In a moment of weakness, Holden agrees to pay for a prostitute when asked by the bellhop, Maurice. Unsure about his decision, he asks the prostitute, Sunny, if they can just talk. Confused, Sunny asks for her payment which was more than what was asked of Holden. The next morning Maurice and Sunny barge into Holden's room and take five dollars.
  • Can we just talk?
