Storyboard Text

  • "There on a low bed, the sheet flung back. dressed in a pair of pink one-piece zippyjamas, so touchingly childish with her pink toes and her grace sleeping face" (143) When John first enters the part of the room where Lenina is sleeping, he notices every small detail about her, which shows the initial attraction he has towards her. 
  • "He entered the room, he knelt on the floor beside her bed. He gazed, he clasped his hands, his lips moved. 'Her eyes,' he murmured" (144) This is the point where John's temptation to touch Lenina begins. He is in awe as to the beauty Lenina possesses. He wants to touch her to get a feel for her beauty. 
  • "Detestable thought! He was ashamed of himself. Pure and vestal modesty" (145) John resists the temptation to touch Lenina because he feels Lenina is too beautiful for him. He is ashamed because he can't believe he even thought that he was worthy enough for Lenina's love. 
  • "'Can you show any reason why I should not now execute the judgment passed upon you?' 'Yes I can,' Bernard answered in a very loud voice" (149) Bernard presents the Director with Linda, as he goes into shock that this was the woman who he had forced to have a baby. 
  • "'Tomankin!' She ran forward...threw her arms round his neck, hid her face on her chest. A howl of laughter went up irrepressibly" (150) The Director is shocked and embarrassed that Linda and John are in the Nursery. The World State responds by laughing to this awkward situation.
  • "My father! Oh Ford, oh Ford! That was really too good. The whooping and the roaring renewed themselves...[The Director] put his hands over his ears and rushed out of the room" (152) The Director did not appreciated the arrival of John and Linda as he has become of mockery in front of the World State.
