Charlie is continuously considering his relationship and feelings to Alice. His memories give him some ideas.
But even as I write these words, something inside shouts that there is more. I'm a person. And I have to love someone.
Thinking about those memories from childhood now, I can understand why I was taught to keep away from woman.
It's wrong for me to express my feelings to Alice. I have no right to think of woman that way-- not yet.
Conflict: He wants to hit Gimpy because Donner is so nice to him and he cheated. But his is also thinking about if Gimpy is fired, how can he and his big family survive without incoming?
Two forty-five, Mrs. Wheeler.
It's $4.53 actually! Why Gimpy is cheating? Had he used me all these years to help him steal?
I want to hit him. I'd be as guilty as Gimpy by my silence.
Satire: Silence is crime.
Sir, what do you think of the suggestion by some senators what we begin using and reinforcement of the navicert controls that had been used in World Wars I & II, against some of the smaller nations which now oppose us?
How foolish I was ever to have thought that professors were intellectual giants
Motif: All people are people. Professors have no special intelligence.
I am sorry but my interest was in interest rates and I suggest you see Dr. Wessey, he might have some ideas. Anyway, I am glad to meet you.
Motif: People are easier bearing morons than wise men, they can notice how stupid themselves but believe that they're clever enough to avoid others discovering.
Yeah, Charlie did nothing to us. It's ture, but we just cannot stand his intelligence, that makes us feel stupid ourselves.
I'll tell you why. Because all of a sudden you're a big shot, a know-it-all, a brain! I'll tell you maybe I don't understand some of them big words or the names of the books, but I'm as good as you are--better even.
Now! Both of you have been avoiding me. Why? What did I do to you?
Conflict: intelligence & kindness. Attitudes changed with I.Q.
Why Charlie is so mean now? I want the original Charlie.
rite--> Write Aa Bb Cc Dd Ee
There was something in you before. I don't know... a warmth, an openness, a kindness that made everyone like you. Now, with your intelligence and knowledge, there are differences that--
What did you expect? All this has changed me and the way I think about myself.
I no longer have to take the kine of crap that people have been handing me all my life. I want to control my own life.
This is our experiment. It might be said that Charlie Gorden did not really exist before this experiment...
No!!! I am a human being, a person-- with parents and memories and a history-- and I was before you ever wheeled me into that operating room!
Motif & Symbolic: human being. Conflict: Doctors and professors think Charlie was not a person before while Charlie doesn't think so.
