Transcript of Quotes

Quote: Middle of book.
Beginning of book: Quote
Ch. and Explanation
"Dill arrived in a blaze of glory: he had ridden the train by himself from Meridian to Maycomb Junction where he had been met by Miss Rachel in Maycomb's one taxi; he had dinner in the diner, he had seen two twins hitched together get off the train in Bay St. Louis and stuck to his story regardless of threats. He had discarded his abominable blue shorts that were buttoned to his shirts and wore real short pants with a belt; he was somewhat heavier, no taller, and he said he had seen his father"

(Ch. 4 Pg. 36): This is the first time we get to meet Dill. He seems destined to prove that he is a grown-up and wants to impress his friends after not seeing them for three seasons. We can also see from this quote that he is stubborn, as he won't let anyone tell him he is fibbing about the Siamese twins he saw on the train.
Quote
Ch. and explanation
"I don't care one speck. It ain't right, somehow it ain't right to do 'em that way. Hasn't anybody got any business talkin' like that--it just makes me sick"
Ch. and explanation
"'That wasn't it, he--they just wasn't interested in me...they stayed gone all the time and when they were home, even, they'd go off in a room by themselves''
(Ch. 14 Pg. 143): In this section, Dill has run away from home to get to Maycomb. He leaves because he feels like he has been abandoned by his mother and his new stepfather. Dill is struggling with his mother being in a new relationship and sharing his mother with another person, and because of this he feels unwanted.
(Ch. 19 Pg. 199): In this passage, Dill is describing why he is crying over Tom Robinson's testimony. He is upset by the way Mr. Gilmer is treating Tom and it moves him so much that he gets emotional about. He can't seem to make Scout understand why it isn't right for him to be treated that way.
In this moment of the novel, we can see that Dill is starting to see the world for how big it really is. He is usually concerned about how he is perceived or treated, and in this moment he is truly caring about the treatment of another human being. Dill doesn't see Tom the way Scout sees him, and because of this he shows empathy for Tom in his dire situation. He understand that the world revolves around many people, not just himself.

Overall, we can see that Dill is a loving and caring
person and a likable character. As the novel progresses he begins to care about more than just himself and the people he loves. He starts to see the world in a bigger picture and he takes what he has learned in Maycomb back with him to Meridian to help him be a more understanding person.
