Storyboard Text

  • In this story "The Monkey's Paw" the theme is 'Be careful what you wish for.'     In this scene, you see, when the White's family had gained the monkey's paw. And how Morris had hinted that the monkey's paw was cursed and how their wishes, would have bad outcomes.
  • If you don't want it, Morris, give it to me.
  • Better to let it burn.
  • If only cleared the house, you'd be quite happy, wouldn't you? Well, wish for two hundred pounds, then: that'll just do it.
  • I wish for two hundred pounds.
  • I won't. I threw it in the fire. If you keep it, don't blame me for what happens. Pitch it on the fire again, like a sensible man.
  • I don't know what to wish for, and that's a fact, it seems to me I've got all I want.
  • After gaining the monkey's paw, you can see Mr. White ignoring Morris's advice and wishing for two hundred pounds.
  • Might drop on his head from the sky.
  • I suppose all old soldiers are the same, the idea of our listening to such nonsense! How could wishes be granted in these days? And if they could, how could two hundred pounds hurt you, Father?
  • Here, you can see the Whites joking about the bad outcome, which Morris had warned them of.
  • I was to say that Maw and Meggins disclaim all responsibility, they admit no liability at all, but in consideration of your son's services they wish to present you with a certain sum as compensation.
  • Two hundred pounds.
  • You can now see, Herbert's parents learning of the bad outcome, Herbert's death, for wishing for two hundred pounds.
  • How much?
  • It is foolish and wicked,
  • I wish my son alive again.
  • Now you can see Mr. White, being forced to use his second wish, to wish Herbert back to life, by his wife, Mrs. White.
  • Wish! Wish!
  • *crying noises from misery and disappointment*
  • Here, you can see, Mrs. White's disappointment that her son wasn't there by the door, after forcing her husband to wish her son back to life. Only after Mr. White had made his third wish.
