  • Exposition
  • Rising Action
  • Climax
  • Robert Proctor is driving, his mother sitting in the passenger seat.
  • Falling Action
  • As he is driving, a car "struck his car near the right front fender, knocking his car to the shoulder on the left side of the Turnpike lane" (Thomas 1) forcing him to fight to steady the car. Robert finally forces the car straight, but he was already in the opposite lanes of traffic. He is headed towards a car, a man driving, and a sleeping girl next to him. "It was not the fear in the man that reached into Robert Proctor; it was the trusting helplessness in the face of the sleeping girl" (Thomas 2).
  • Resolution
  • Robert wakes up in a comfortable chair, being asked "You all right, Son?" (Thomas 2) by a man he vaguely recognized. The man explains that it was the last part of his driving test, being put through an accident under hypnosis. Thinking of the sleeping girl, he thought "She never would have awakened, she would have passed sleep of death, nothing in between. His mother would have been bad enough; after all, she was pretty old."
  • Theme
  • He gets up to leave, but two men dressed in white restrain him. They tell him that he's sick, he should have no desire to drive a car for months. They say killing doesn't bother him.
  • Robert is escorted out by the men, presumably to a mental institution.
  • It is difficult to correctly interpret any, including yours, underlying character. The way Robert reacted to the hypnosis accident could make it seem like he just isn't bothered on how what he has done effects others, but it could just be he was able to suppress the effects because he then knew it was not real.
