Charlie Gordon and Alice Kinnian arrived on Alice's apartment after their dinner. This storyboard shows Charlie Gordon's apparent lack of ability in dealing with women. Even though Charlie Gordon got smarter, he is still clueless about love, and has not found a good way to handle it. He is rejected by Alice Kinnian in the scene above.
Yes, I see that now.
This is my fault. I shouldn't have gone out with you tonight.
That's my worry, isn't it?
What I mean is, we have no right to put this on a personal...emotional level. You have so much to do. I have no right to come into your life at this time
The more she talked that way the worse i felt. I was blundering adolescent in her eyes
Is it? This isnt your private affair any more Charlie. You've got obligations now-not only to professor Nemur and Dr.Strauss, but to the millions who may follow in your footsteps.
Chalie Gordon and Alice Kinnian had an akward dinner when he accidentally spilled water on her. Afterwards, they took a cab to Alice Kinnian's apartment on Seventy-seventh street, and Charlie was thoroughly miserable.
I thought she was gonna let me in, I wanted to kiss her goodnight, but what if she turns me down?
Good night , Charlie
Alice Kinnian begins to distance hershelf from Charlie, due to her fear that it might affect the results of the experiment, and perhaps that she is also uncomfortable. Charlie is ofcourse upset by the ordeal.
What does she mean by "not yet"?
We'd better just say goodnight this way, Charlie. We cant let this get personal. Not yet.
Alice Kinnian takes the emotion out of the conversation, and makes a professional concern. She calls out Charlie for being selfish, and this makes him feel worse. Charlie felt that she highlights Charlie's akwardness and his folly.
How does a man learn how to behave toward a woman? The books dont help much.
Alice Kinnian merely whispers to say her farewell to Charlie, without inviting him in, rushing to distance herself from him even further. Charlie wanted to give her a kiss to show his affection just like he learned from the books he has read and the movies he had seen. He hesitates as he fears her rejection.
Charlie Gordon attempts to reach for her shoulders, but she held his hands instead to stop him from making any advances. She tries to avoid any romance, and rejects his attempts. Charlie does not understand why she holds back.
Alice Kinnian closes the door on him. Charlie suffers from rejection. He is angry at her, himself and the world. He wonders if she actually cares for him or is she just being nice.
