  • They move to the parlor and Sergeant-Major Morris hands Mr White the shriveled paw. The camera zooms in on Mr Whites hand and the zooms out again. Sergeant-Major Morris tells the story of the paw and where it originated. "How do you wish?" said Mr White. "Be warned," said Sergeant-Major Morris "The paw only brings gret sorrow if you wish". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GycgZXFIVLc
  • After Sergeant-Major Morris leaves, the family decides to wish. Mr White plays some impressive notes on the piano and wishes. "I wish for 200 pounds!" says Mr white, and as he wishes the hand floor and lightning strikes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GycgZXFIVLc
  • Camera zooms in or Mr and  Ms White as they get the new of Herbert's death. "My son! What has happened to my son!" screamed Ms White. "We have some money in Herbert's honor for you..." said the messenger. "How much..." says Mr White, quietly. "200 pounds" says the messenger joyfully.
  • Later that night, as they stare out the window in tears, Ms White has an idea. "You can wish on the paw and bring back my son!" exclaims Ms White. "It's wicked, strange, and abnormal!" yells Mr White. Camera zooms in on Ms White, "It was your fault, now wish him back!" she yells.
