Storyboard Text

  • The moon shines in all around just as the sun does. I hate to see it sometimes, it creeps so slowly, and always comes in by one window or another.John was asleep and I hated to waken him, so I kept still and watched the moonlight on that undulating wall-paper till I felt creepy.The faint figure behind seemed to shake the pattern, just as if she wanted to get out. I got up softly and went to feel and see if the paper did move. (p.24)
  • The color of the wallpaper is hideous enough, and unreliable enough, and infuriating enough, but the pattern is torturing. You think you have mastered it, but just as you get well underway in following, it turns a back somersault and there you are. It slaps you in the face, knocks you down, and tramples upon you. It is like a bad dream. (p.28)
  • I caught Jennie with her hand on the wallpaper once.She didn't know I was in the room, and when I asked her in a very quiet voice, with the most restrained manner possible, what she was doing with the paper....she turned around as if she had been caught stealing, and looked quite angry....asked me why I should frighten her so! (p.31)
  • I often wonder if I could see her out of all the windows at once.But, turn as fast as I can, I can only see out of one at one time. And though I always see her, she MAY be able to creep faster than I can turn!(p.38)
  • I wonder if they all come out of that wallpaper as I did? But I am securely fastened now by my well hidden rope...!I suppose I shall have to get back behind the pattern when it comes night, and that is hard!(p.43)
  • John came in and stopped short by the door. "What is the matter?" he cried. "For God's sake, what are you doing!"...I kept on creeping just the same, but I looked at him over my shoulder. "I've got out at last," said I, "in spite of you and Jane. And I've pulled off most of the paper, so you can't put me back!"Now why should that man have fainted? But he did, and right across my path by the wall, so that I had to creep over him every time!(p.45)
  • I must get back in the wall!
