Storyboard Text

  •  With the clue that Matt had opened a barbershop somewhere in the Bronx, it was a simple matter to find him (Keyes 181).
  • "I've got to meet someone I haven't seen in a long time," I assured him, "and I want to look my best
  • The works
  •  I wanted to tell hint who I was and have him put his arm around my shoulder, so we could talk about the old days
  • "Everything sanitary, as you can see, which is more than I can say for most barbershops in this neighborhood. Haircut and shave?
  • Usually, when I'm exhausted from walking, I go back to the apartment and drop off into a deep sleep, but tonight instead of going up to my own place I went to the diner (Keyes 197)
  • "Don't just stand there! Get the broom and sweep up that mess. A broom ..a broom! you idiot! It's in the kitchen. Sweep up all the pieces.
  • Shut up! Leave him alone! He can't understand. He can't help what he is... but for God's sake, have some respect He's a human being
  •  Alice agreed to see me, and I took a taxi uptown, impatient at the slowness with which we moved (Keyes 200).
  • I think I've changed during these weeks away from the lab
  •  But the deeper I get tangled up in this mass of dreams and memories the more I realize that emotional problems can't be solved as intellectual problems are
  •  I've got to grow up
  • Can't I do anything? Can't I help?
  •  A terrible thing happened today. Algernon bit Fay. (Keyes 214)
  • Algernon bites me and Minnie
  •  He seems listless and confused, and though he still learns new problems without external rewards, his performance is peculiar
  •  Now I've got to get him back to the lab
  • "We're all glad you're back and going to work with us. Jayson called and told me the Foundation was putting you to work on the project
  • But if I solve the problem I bring in the whole crew with me.
  • If I don't come up with an explanation for Algernon's behavior, all of his work goes down the drain
  • He was doing his utmost to be cordial, but I could see by his face that he was skeptical
  •  Nemur, Strauss, Burt, and a few of the others on the project were waiting for me in the psych office.(Keyes 215)
  • I went into the lab where Burt was watching Algernon in one of the multiple problem boxes. (Keyes 216)
  • "Could it be because he was away from the lab for so long?
  •  He's solving problems on a much more primitive level than I would have expected
  • "He's forgotten a lot. Most of his complex responses seem to have been wiped out
