Introduction

An Analysis of Scene 3 (Pages 7 to 9), From 'Gregory's Girl, Describing How the Scene Should be Acted and the Effect on the Audience In scene 3 of 'Gregory's Girl' there are only three characters involved. One is Gregory, another is Madeline who is Gregory's sister, and the other one is Mike who is Gregory's father. In this scene Gregory is late for school and is getting ready in front of a mirror in his bedroom. He then is talking to himself while he is putting on his deodorant. His sister who is outside is listening to him talking to himself. Gregory then smells is own breath by putting his hands over his mouth and breathes out and smells. He then exhales out loudly and smells. He then picks up his electric toothbrush, selects an appropriate brush, clicks it into place and then turns on his brush. He is in tune with the brush. He then changes gear. Madeline then comes into his bedroom and then criticises his tie saying it clashes with what he is wearing. Gregory then has a conversation with Madeline. ...read more.

She would be wearing a black skirt, a white shirt with a black jumper and a school tie. This would show the audience that she is getting ready for school. Gregory then stops buttoning his shirt and says "ooh dear me, almost forgot my twelve hour protector. That would never do. Just a little roll fights off the demon sweaty odours for a full twelve hours. Then a little dab to encourage the chesty follicles and perhaps a quick whirl round the band of the Y-fronts and he's protected. One hundred per cent protection against all unsightly odours. Or is he?". I would make the actor use a commentating voice when the actor is saying these lines. The facial expressions when the actor is speaking he would be raising his eyebrows and moving his head. When the audience see this scene the audience know that Gregory likes to smell good. Then Gregory puts his hands over his mouth and smells his breath. Then he exhales out loudly smelling to see if his breath smells. When the audience see this they realise that Gregory does not like to smell bad and he likes to give a good impression of himself. ...read more.

Conclusion

Mike then puts the milk near the kettle and takes the kettle to the sink and now he is filling it up with water. Mike then turns the tap off and takes the kettle back to boil the water. Mike is continuing "this is an added bonus. She'll be thrilled with news from this unexpected sighting". Mike then presses the button to boil the kettle. Gregory then looks at the kettles light and asks his dad "so what keeps you hanging about the homestead" in a curious voice. Mike then corrects him in a correcting voice "returning to not hanging about. He then says in a tiresome voice "I have already taken Mr. Clarke for his pre-test warm up, done an hour with Miss. Benthal and since my next client..." Gregory then buts in and says " client? Bit over the top, isn't it?" in a humorous voice. Mike then looks at Gregory with a raised eyebrow and continues "my next client happens to lives nearby so I dropped off for a cup of coffee. Unfortunately the adaptor for the coffee machine seems to have walked, and, not unnaturally, I surmised that it may have walked here". Mike says the last few lines sarcastically to give the audience a bit of humour. 20/2/2003 Kassum Hussain 11YB English G.C.S.E. Coursework ...read more.
