  • Objection!
  • Bertram Cates is put on trial for illegally teaching evolution to his students in the 1920's. Matthew Harrison Brady is brought to testify against him, and Henry Drummond will defend his case. Rachel is his girlfriend and her father is the Hillsboro reverend.
  • Climax
  • Oh, so God speaks to you?
  • In Hillsboro, Brady is given a huge advantage because everyone in the town absolutely adores him. Also, it is an incredibly religious environment, which doesn't sit well next to evolutionism. Rachel, his girlfriend, is prompting him to quit and give up. All of the odds are against Bert Cates, but he and Drummond continue to stand their ground.
  • Falling Action
  • X

  • Drummond tries to call fifteen different scientists, but Brady objected to each and the Judge ruled them irrelevant. The judge ruled out any testimony that has to do with Charles Darwin's titles. This makes the testimony much more difficult, for they may not sway the jury by talking about Cates's motivation
  • Resolution
  • After Drummond has been declined the right to bring any scientists or professors onto the stand, he unexpectedly calls the expert on the Bible, the prosecuting attorney, Matthew Harrison Brady, as a witness. Drummond asks literal questions about things in the Bible, and ended up getting Brady to say he can speak to God. Brady looses his grip on the trial.
  • The jury decided that Cates is guilty, but only charged him $100. Brady is overwhelmed and tries to pull few supporters back in by giving a speech. Suddenly, he freezes and falls over. Brady is carried to the hospital and later declared dead.
  • Drummond admits to Hornbeck that he, like Brady, is very religious. He argued that Brady had the same right as Cates, the right to be wrong. He shoves a Bible and Darwin's book into his suitcase to symbolize how both perspectives are important.
