EXPOSITION. Information concerning how Schatz is not feeling well, leading to a doctor being called to diagnose that he has influenza.
RISING ACTION. The rising action comes as Schatz's illness wears on, and the boy's actions and responses are seen as unusual.
CLIMAX. The climax comes when Schatz asks his father when he will die, and the father reveals that Schatz has misunderstood the two types of thermometer readings.
FALLING ACTION. After learning that he will not die, Schatz slowly relaxes and seems better the next day.
DENOUEMENT. This can best be summed up in the final paragraph, when the narrator tells us that Schatz cries "very easily at little things that were of no importance."
