4th and 6th hour

This is a picture of a baby in a coma. This baby in a coma is important to the theme and the character development of the story. I know this because the author wrote, “ Nikki is technically out of a coma now, but she is not really responding.”(Konigsburg, 137)
This event in the hospital is important to the theme because the whole theme is about the baby being dropped. This supports the main idea because if the baby wasn’t dropped, then Branwell would have still been talking and there would be no character development because Connor is getting more people to help with Branwell’s case but if there was no case of him not talking, then there would just be Branwell and Connor in the story. I know this because the author also wrote, “ They’ve taken her off the respirator. She’s breathing on her own.”(Konigsburg, 137) This event also involves the theme and the character development because the theme helped Branwell learn a lesson about taking care of the baby, which helped more characters become involved in the story. Because more characters were in the story, Branwell got the message of to be more careful, even if he doesn’t like it.
Lesson: Using this lesson of being more careful with other things, I can learn that I shouldn’t be trying to be doing multiple things at a time. This way no one will get hurt or nothing will happen that could get someone hurt.
Picture Explanation
This is a picture of a pack of cards. The pack of cards is important to the theme of the story. I know this because the author’s words were, “ Do you have your pack of cards with you?” (Konigsburg, 161) This event in the Behavioral Center is important to the theme because part of the theme is Connor trying to get Branwell to talk which this is helping Connor get more ideas of what he could do to help. I also know this because the author’s exact words were, “ He pointed to the next letter, and we played the same wait-and-wnd Connor helped the theme grow. The theme is Braait game.”(Konigsburg, 211) This moment of Branwell anwell and Connor communicating since Branwell didn’t want to talk and they both made up a game. Finally this game got Branwell to talk and figure out that he doesn’t need to make himself not talk because he did something wrong, he just needs to learn from his mistakes.
Lesson: Using this lesson of not taking it out on himself too far to make himself get mad and others too, I can learn that I should not be too hard on myself because if I am, I can miss out on life and great things.

Quote Explanation
Theme song explanation
The main idea is the song, eye of the tiger. This applies to the whole story. I know this because in the music video it is a bunch of people getting together in the beginning of the video.(Survivor, beginning of the song to the 50 second mark) This applies to the story because in the story, Connor goes around getting people and people to help him with the case of Branwell not talking because he dropped the baby and wants to punish himself by not talking. Getting the people around in the music video show how Connor got everyone around to help Branwell. Also, in the music video they sing, “rising up, back on the street, took my time, took my chances”(Survivor, 50 second mark). This shows how Connor went and got everyone, rising up to the Climax of the story when Branwell talked to Connor and Connor took so much time to get everyone and took the chances of going to people, even though he really didn’t want to but he wanted to help his friend.
Lesson: By the lesson of helping people and taking risks and doing what is right, I can learn that I should help people sometimes and I should take my time during risky moments.

The main idea is Vivian smoking when she is not supposed to. This is important to the plot of the story. I know this because it says in the story, “Someone might tell them that she started smoking again”(Konigsburg, 203). This part of the story is important to the plot because the smoke could hurt the baby, which the baby is mostly the whole part of the plot because the theme is the baby getting dropped. Because the baby got dropped when Vivian was smoking, the smoke might have been how the baby was having trouble breathing. I also know this because the author wrote, “After all the trouble I had gone to getting Yolanda to tell me about how Vivian had smoked in the house, upstairs where the baby slept, against the expressed wishes of the baby’s mother, her letter should at least have mentioned that there were people who had seen that she had broken a serious promise to Summerhill”(Konigsburg, 218). This moment contributes to the plot because it shows that Vivian did not follow the rules of not smoking and was smoking around the baby. Therefore, Vivian learned that she needs to listen to the directions first because it might hurt someone if you do not follow the rules.
Lesson: Taking this lesson into my mind of listening to directions, I can learn that sometimes if I don’t want to do a chore or something someone tells me I need to do, I should still do it so nothing could go wrong.

This main idea is Morris being all sassy and a pain. This is important to the character development and the plot. I know this because it says in the story, “Since I been born”(Konigsburg, 148). This part of the story is important to the character development because Connor is trying to find someone to help them figure out why Branwell isn’t talking which adds a new character, Morris, to the story and Morris won’t even tell Connor any information which if Morris told Connor information, then there would be more characters and Connor will be closer to getting Branwell to talk. The author also wrote, “Yeah? Whatcha wanna know?”(Konigsburg, 149) This is important to the plot because the plot is the baby being dropped and the 911 call which Morris ends up being one of the people at the 911 call and wants Branwell to talk again but won’t tell Connor anything because he is lazy and sassy since the 911 call. Morris ends up telling Connor though and Connor gets Branwell to talk.
Lesson: Taking this lesson into thought, I can learn that I shouldn’t be stubborn because I am angry and help people out by giving them information because if you help someone out, you could get something in return.
