This graph illustrates the melodramatic acting outbursts in the play in terms of hysterical episodes.
- The Y axis is the prototypical cycle of hysteria with Attitudes Passionnelles at the climax
- The X axis is pages of the play
- Catharine is in purple and everyone else is in blue
- The cut off Catharine cycles are cut off because of ovarian compression (as in the ideal hysteric being played like a music box)
