Storyboard Text

  • It is a summer of the 1960's, the narrator and a Dartmouth crew of 20 year old guys are watching Sheila Mant, a 17 year old, sunbathing in the lake by her house.
  • WOW! She is so hot! 
  • The narrator, a 14 year old, has a crush on Sheila. When she was playing softball, he decides to go to her lawn and ask her out on a date. He is frightened, but Sheila accepts.
  • Hey, there's a band playing in Dixford tomorrow night, you wanna come?
  • Um, we'll go by canoe...
  • You have a car? Yeah sure!
  • Uhhhh, its faster this way because of parking...
  • The narrator picks up Sheila from her dock, to go on their date. Sheila had a dubious expression and was not impressed by the canoe.
  • Look, I can get Dad's car...
  • This is so lame!
  • On their way, they hear a loud splash that turns out to be a bass. The narrator's dream is to catch a bass, but Sheila was not interested in fishing. He has to decide between Sheila or catching the bass.
  • The loud splash is a bass!
  • Ew, I think fishing is so dumb! Like, it is so boring!
  • WTH!!! Ugh!
  • The narrator decides to leave the bass and stay with Sheila. They arrive and the band is performing; later, she rejects him and leaves with Eric Caswell in his corvette. He was upset and uninterested in Sheila.
  • You know what? You are a funny kid, but I'm leaving in Eric Caswell's awesome corvette!
  • The narrator regrets not pursuing his dreams of catching the bass because of a girl and the memory of the bass will haunt him forever. He learns to never sacrifice his dreams over somethings that is not important to him.
  • UGH, i should have catched that bass! But, now i know that there will be other Sheila Mants in my life, since there are plenty of fish in the sea and I will never make the same mistake again.
