Allusions In Fahrenheit 451 What Does the Quote Say? “..the crisis is past and all is well, the sheep returns to the fold. We’re all sheep who have strayed at times”(102). What Does it Mean? Montag is playing cards at the firehouse with Captain Beatty and the other firemen. Montag keeps his hands underneath the table because he feels nervous and guilty being back around the firemen. He gets up and washes his hands twice in a half hour. Captain Batty tells Montag, "Lets have your hands in sight, Montag. Not that we dont trust you, understand, but-"(102). Everyone laughs at this because he is mocking him. Then Beatty tells Montag that the crisis, Montag having books, is over and its okay now. He is basically telling Montag that everyone betrays or strays away from someone at one point in their life. What Does it Matter? This Quote is alluding the prophecy in the old testament, Book of Isaiah Chapter 52 verse 6
"All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned ever one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid him the inequity of us all."
This message implies that Montag has strayed away from the firemen and went on his own way by reading books. Chase Dunneback
