Storyboard Text

  • Nothing! I'm simply sitting here, admiring you.
  • What the hellya doing?
  • No. shut up.
  • Can't I go with you? Holden? Can't I? Please
  • Holden heads to his old English teacher at Elkton Hills, Mr. Antolini's house to spend the night. Mr. Antolini tells him that he is headed for a great fall that would lead him to be always bitter and angry at the world. Holden argues that he then soon grows to like the guys that he hated like Ackley and Stradlater. The teacher goes on and say s that this fall is experienced by men who can't deal with the world around them. Later that night, Holden wakes up to Mr. Antolini stroking his head in the dark.
  • After spending the night in the Grand Central Station, Holden decided that he is going to hitch hike west. He then leaves a note for phoebe at her school to meet him at the museum of art. At quarter past 12, she shows up with her suitcase indicating that she is going with him. Holden won't let her and she got upset.
  • How can I apply myself in school?
  • Phoebe refuses to go back to school, so he offered to take her to the zoo. They walk to the zoo, Holden on one side of the street, Phoebe followed angrily on the other side. After looking at some animals, they walk to the park, now on the same side of the street, although not quite together.
  • In the park Holden buys her a ticket to ride on the carousel. As she rides around, he sits on a bench, in the falling rain and watches her. then he burst into tears because he felt happy (finally) looking at phoebe going around and around.
  • In the end Holden brings the reader back to the present day; he goes home, got sick and is supposed to go back to school in September right after he gets out of the mental hospital. However he is not so sure whether or not things will be different at all.
  • He wishes he hadn't told us the story at all because he sort of missed a lot of people he talked about including those he called a 'phonies'; Stradlater, Ackley and even Maurice
