To Kill a Mockingbird: Good vs Evil
Transcript of To Kill a Mockingbird: Good vs Evil
"'...Atticus ain't got time to teach me anything. Why, he's so tired at night he just sits in the living room and reads." (Lee 22)
"'Your father does not know how to teach'" (Lee 23) "'You tell [Atticus] I'll take over from here and try to undo the damage." (Lee 23)
"'Won't answer a word you say long as you keep on mockin' me,' she said.
'Ma'am?' asked Atticus, startled.
'Long's you keep on makin' fun o' me.'" (Lee 243)
" 'Yessum, and she promised me I could come out to her house some afternoon. Atticus, I'll go next Sunday if it's all right, can I? Cal said she'd come get me if you were off in the car.' " (Lee, 181)
"'What you want, Lula?' she asked... 'I wants to know why you bringin' white chillun to (negro) church.' 'They's my comp'ny' said Calpurnia. (Lee 158)
" 'You may not.' " (Lee, 181)
" '...you've got to do something about her, you've let things go on too long, Atticus, too long.' " (Lee 182)
" 'I don't see any harm in letting her go out there. Cal'd look after her there as well as she does here.' " (Lee, 182)
"'That's just Mr. Finch's way.' ... 'We've done business in this court for years and years, and Mr.Finch is always courteous to everybody. He's not trying to mock you, he's trying to be polite. That's just his way.' " (Lee 243)
"Judge Taylor was polling the jury: 'Guilty...guitly...guilty...guilty' I peeked at Jem: his hands were white from gripping the balcony rail, and his shoulders jerked as if each 'guilty' was a seperate stab between them" (Lee 282)
"The kitchen table was loaded with enough food to bury the family: hunks of salt pork, tomatoes, beans, even scuppernongs. Atticus grinned when he found a jar of pickled pigs' knuckles." (Lee 286)
"'They-they 'preciate what you did, Mr. Finch.'" (Lee 286)
"'I don't know, but they did it. They've done it before and they did it tonight and they'll do it again and when they do it...seems that only children weep.'" (Lee 285)
"According to Miss Stephanie Crawford...Atticus was leaving the post office when Mr. Ewell approached him, cursed him, spat on him, and threatened to kill him." (Lee 291)
"Do you love your father, Miss Mayella?" was his next.
"Love him, whatcha mean?"
"I mean is he good to you, is he easy to get along with?"
" He does tollable, 'cept when-"
Mayella looked at her father, who was sitting with his chair tipped against the railing. He sat up straight and waited for her to answer.
"Except when nothin'', said Mayella. "I said he does tollable"
"Atticus didn't bat an eye, just took out his handkerchief and wiped his face and stood there and let Mr. Ewell all him names wild horses wouldn't repeat." (Lee 291)
"...Atticus peaceful reaction probably [Bob Ewell] to inquire, 'Too proud to fight, you (negro)-lovin' bastard?' (Lee 291)
"'Mister Jem,' he said, 'we're mighty glad to have you all here. Don't pay no 'tention to Lula, she's contentious because Reverend Sykes threatened to church her. She's a troublemaker from way back, got fancy ideas an' haughty ways-we're mighty glad to have you all.'" (Lee 159)
"Lula stopped, but she said, 'You ain't got no business bringin' white chillun here-they got their church, we got our'n. It is our church, ain't it, Miss Cal?'" (Lee 159)
"Jem and I hated [Mrs. Dubose]. If she was on the porch when we pased, we would be raked by her wrathful gaze, subjected to ruthless interrogation regarding our behavior, and given a melancholy prediction on what we would amount to when we grew up, which was always nothing." (Lee 132)
" 'Cal, can I come see you sometimes?' " (Lee, 167)
" 'Out to your house, sometimes after work? Atticus can get me.' " (Lee, 168)
" 'Anytime you want to, we'd be glad to have you.' " (Lee, 168)
"'Easy does it, son,' Atticus would say. 'She's an old lady and she's ill. You just hold your head high and be a gentleman. Whatever she says to you, it's your job not to let her make you mad.'" (Lee 133)
" Just what i said. Grandma says its bad enough he lets you all run wild, but know he's turned out a (negro) lover we'll never be able to walk the streets of Maycomb agin. He's ruining the family, that's what he's doin'."(Lee 110)
"Our company shuffled and dragged his feet..." (Lee 350)
"More scuffling, and there came a dull crunching sound and Jem screamed."
"He slowly squeezed the breath out of me" (Lee 351)
" The man was walking with the staccato steps of someone carrying a load too heavy for him. He was going around the corner. He was carrying Jem. Jem's arm was dangling crazily in front of him. " (Lee 352)
" Hey, Boo" (Lee 362)
"'...tell you right now, Uncle Jack, I'll be- I swear before God if I'll sit there and let him say somethin' about Atticus.'" (Lee 114)
"She continued by saying to the judge 'Long's he keeps callin' me ma'am an sayin' Miss Mayella. I don't hafta take his sass, I ain't called upon to take it.'" (Lee 243)
"Miss Caroline told me to tell my father not to teach me any more, it would interfere with my reading." (Lee 22)
"He had announced in the schoolyard the day before that Scout Finch's daddy defended (negroes)." (Lee 99)
"'You can just take that back, boy!'" (Lee 99)
"We could do nothing to please her. If I said as sunnily as I could 'Hey, Mrs. Dubose,' I would recieve for an answer 'Don't you say hey to me, you ugly girl! You say good afternoon, Mrs. Dubose!'" (Lee 133)
To Kill a Mockingbird
"'...Some-Mr. Ewell yanked him down, I reckon. They tussled some more and then there was this funny noise-Jem hollered...' I stopped. That was Jem's arm" (Lee 361)
"'Francis called Atticus somethin' an' I wasn't about to take it off him'" (Lee 114)
"'My folks said your daddy was a disgrace an' that (negro) oughta hang from the water-tank.'" (Lee 103)
