The Invisible Man

His sudden departure, however, has Cranley's daughter Flora worried about him. Griffin has taken a room at the nearby Lion's Head Inn, hoping to reverse an experiment he conducted on himself that made him invisible. Unfortunately, the drug he used has also warped his mind, making him aggressive and dangerous. He's prepared to do whatever it takes to restore his appearance, and several will die in the process.

any papers in his room?

Surely he must have arranged where

he was going. There may be letters.

He left burnt papers

in his fireplace, that's all.

He was so strange those last few days

before he went. So excited and strung up.

Yet he wouldn't say a word to explain.

I've never seen him like it before.

He was always so keen

to tell me about his experiments.

He meddled in things

men should leave alone.

Your father's a scientist. He's discovered

more about preserving food than anyone.

Jack and I were employed to help him.

That's a plain, straightforward job.

It's not romantic, but it saves

hundreds of deaths and stomachaches.

What things should men leave alone?

He worked in secret. He kept a lot of stuff

locked in a big cupboard in his laboratory.

He never opened it until he'd barred

the door and drawn the blinds.

Straightforward scientists have no need

for barred doors and drawn blinds.

He cares nothing for you, Flora.

He'll never care about anything

but test tubes and chemicals.

How can he go away like this

without a word?

Flora, dear. Please, darling,

let me tell you how I feel.

- I can't work or sleep until I know.

- Leave me alone! How can you?


There's a way back, you fool.

There must be a way back.


- What is it?

- Your luncheon.

- Take it away.

- You don't want it cold, do you?

Do you suppose that I'm going to carry

trays backwards and forwards all day?

Luncheon's at one, and it's one now!

Get out!


He's not gonna stay under this roof,

not another hour!

Crashed the tray out of me hand,

and swore at me.

Turns my best sitting room

into a chemist's shop.

Spillages on the carpets!

And him a week behind with his money!

Go and tell him if he ain't

packed up and gone in half an hour,
