Transcript of The Chocolate War

Chapter 1 The Chocolate War *Jerry, the main character, was at football Tryouts, in the Trinity High school, but the reader had to make an inference that he wasn’t getting harassed.
*Jerry was trying out for football he was in pain.
*Jerry was astonished with himself that he was still standing.
*The coach thought that Jerry had guts and was surprised he was still standing Chapter 2 *The point of view in Obie’s mind was that he absolutely despised Archie, the leader of a secret group the Vigils, because Archie made Obie do everything he didn’t want to do.
*Archie doesn't like Obie anymore than Obie likes him.
*Archie and Obie were disguising “assignments” for students at Trinity High school.
*Assignments are when the Vigils make a student do something defiant against there will. Chapter 3 *Jerry was at the bus stop looking at these drop-outs, wondering what it would be like, and when the people he was looking at spoke to him the had a certain kind of jargon.
*The drop-outs wanted to know why Jerry was starring at them everyday.
*Jerry denied that he was starring at the drop-outs everyday, even though he was. Chapter 4 *In chapter 4 Brother Leon is introduced as one of the characters, and Leon was asking Archie to help sell the chocolates.
*Archie infers that the school finances is in trouble because Leon is asking for help.
*Brother Leon is desperate for Archie to help. Chapter 5 *The summary of chapter 5 is the Vigils assigning Goober/ Goubert to unscrew the screws in all the furniture in Brother Leon’s class.
*Goober didn’t want to do it, he felt it wasn’t right and that he would get caught.
*Archie, the head of the Vigils, was making him destroy the classroom. Chapter 6 *The mood in classroom 19 there was a silence threw out the room as Brother Leon called the best student in the room up to the front of the class and accused him of cheating.
*Everyone in the room was shocked , then they thought it was a joke and started to laugh
*Brother Leon was still accusing Bailey of cheating then Leon smacked him across the face. Chapter 7 *The setting of chapter 7 is in the parking lot between classes.
*Archie was walking out and saw Emile siphoning gas out of a car
*Emile is a delinquent that nobody does anything about.
*Archie is obsessed with how scarred he makes people and how he is such a beautiful creature because he doesn't care what people think. Chapter 8 *The main idea of this chapter is how Goober tries to complete the assignment he was given by the Vigils.
*Goober was taking forever because all of the bolts were screwed on by machines.
*These mysterious figures come in and helped Goober unscrew the furniture. Chapter 9 *In Chapter 9 you have to infer that Jerry’s Dad misses his wife.
*He is trying to do what is best for Jerry even though he doesn’t know what to do all that much.
*Jerry’s Dad is sad but tries to be happy.
*Jerry tries to have a conversation with his father. Chapter 10 *To paraphrase chapter 10 Brother Leon and the people who listen to him were getting the chocolate sale up and running.
*Archie didn’t want to sell the share of chocolate so he was thinking about how he will get other kids to do it for him like he does every year.
*The quota for the chocolate sale is double more than the following year. Chapter 11 *The image the author wanted the reader to see in chapter 11 was an avalanche of desks and any furniture in room 19.
*Goober did this because of an assignment from the Vigils gave him.
*Everyone blamed the Vigils even Brother Leon.
*He singled out Archie for the destruction of his class room.
Chapter 12 *“He had expected Carter to blitz and instead the big guard had pulled back and skirted the line, annihilating Jerry from behind.” The metaphor means that Carter tackled Jerry.
*The coach was getting aggravated that all the plays weren’t working.
*At the end they finally made it.
*Jerry threw the ball and Goober caught it. Chapter 13 *The start of Jerry’s assignment was to deny too sell the chocolate for school.
*The tone of the classroom when Jerry denied the chocolates was shocked and worried.
*Brother Leon was just as surprised as everyone else. *Selling the chocolates were not fun, most people won’t buy them.
*the story is told in the omniscient point of veiw
*Everyone is wondering why Jerry isn’t selling the chocolate. Chapter 15 *In chapter 15 it is ironic that Emile thinks Archie has an incriminating photo of him.
*Archie never took the photo Emile thinks he did.
*However Emile is being blackmailed with nothing and he doesn’t know it.
Chapter 14 Chapter 16 *Brother Leon is blackmailing a student but the reader has to infer that at the beginning.
*The student tells Brother Leon all about Jerry’s assignment to get his grade from an F to an A.
* At the end Brother Leon doesn’t give the student the raise on the paper. Chapter 17 *Jerry was supposed to start selling the chocolates but denied it.
*The mood of the classroom was awkward and surprised.
*Brother Leon was so confused and infuriated.
Chapter 18 *Jerry didn’t know why he denied the chocolates.
*To paraphrase his internal conflict he was asking himself why he did it then answering himself with I don’t know.
*He couldn’t sleep that night nor was he going to. Chapter 19 *People are admiring Jerry for saying no to selling chocolates; the theme of this chapter is admiration.
* In the classroom Jerry was sad after he denied the chocolates.
*Goober was wondering why Jerry wasn’t selling the chocolates; all Jerry said was that he didn’t know. Chapter 20 *Archie made Obie and a few other boys to do exercise whenever a teacher said environment.
*Obie has been involved in so many Vigil assignments that he lost count.
* But the situational irony of it is that Archie tipped off the teacher to say environment so Obie and the boys would have to do that over and over again.
Chapter 21 *Two students, Kevin and Danny are on the phone talking about how Jerry Renault has the right idea; they are sick of selling chocolates.
*Two other students, Howie and Ricky, discuss the same topic; they think Jerry has the right idea as well. Howie says he will not sell them any longer either. Ricky is shocked.
*Obie leaves a note for Archie to meet him in the gym. Obie tells him that Jerry is still not selling the chocolates. Obie convinces Archie that Jerry is defying The Vigils by refusing to sell the chocolates. The reader has to infer Archie is mad. Chapter 22 *Brian Cochran is startled by how poorly the chocolate sale is going.
*Leon makes Brian read off how many boxes each boy has sold. When Brian reads Jerry’s name, Leon grows angry.
* He says the boys have become infected by apathy and Renault is the carrier of the disease. That metaphor means that Renault/Jerry is causing the boys to stop selling the chocolates Chapter 23 *The Goober tells Jerry that he wants to quit the football team.
*The mood of the chapter is frantic and scared.
*He tells Jerry that he heard Brother Eugene had a nervous breakdown.
* The Goober believes there is something evil in the school.
* Jerry says to think of it as a game.
*The Goober says he will not give anything else to Trinity. Chapter 24 *Archie was pulled aside by Brian Cochran who told Archie that he overheard Brother Jacques accuse Brother Leon of abusing his power of attorney.
*Brian thinks that Leon bought the chocolates with money that he was not supposed to use.
*On the phone Leon accuses Archie of hurting the sale with his prank involving Jerry Renault.
*Archie says the sale is not going well because the students are forced to sell twice as many boxes as the previous year at double the price.
*Archie thinks Leon should never have expected that the sale would work since the students could barely meet the previous year’s quota.
*Leon tells Archie that Jerry must be made to say yes to the chocolates.
*If Jerry continues to refuse, Leon will destroy The Vigils.
*Before Archie can tell Leon that he knows about his financial situation, Leon hangs up the phone. *This is a paraphrased version of the conversation.
Chapter 25 *Jerry is summoned to The Vigils the setting is in the storage room.
*Archie asks each of The Vigils how many chocolates he has sold; they all answer with large numbers. Archie asks Jerry why he has not sold any chocolates; Jerry tells him it is personal.
*When Jerry tells Archie he is not selling the chocolates because he does not want to, Archie says they must all do things they do not want to do; this makes Jerry sad.
*Archie says Jerry’s new assignment is to take the chocolates; Jerry must face the punishment code because he has disobeyed the Vigils before.
*Obie realizes, when Archie “asks” and does not “tell” Jerry to sell the chocolates that Archie is afraid. Obie thinks that Jerry will be the demise of Archie.
Chapter 26 *Jerry calls all of the Barrett’s in the telephone book in search of Ellen Barrett, the girl who smiled at him at the bus stop.
*When he reaches the last number, the girl on the other end calls him a pervert and has no idea who he is.
* Jerry hangs up, wondering if he is some kind of pervert, not a sexual pervert, but perverted for not selling the chocolates, this is a metaphor.
*That morning he defied The Vigils by once again refusing to sell the chocolates.

Chapter 27 *The Vigils choose Frankie Rollo for an assignment; he is a tough guy who refuses to take part in anything at Trinity, he has survived so far by cheating and on luck.
* Frankie says how The Vigils do not scare him. Carter, who has been waiting for such an opportunity, begins punching Frankie.
*Carter yells for someone to remove Frankie from the room. When Frankie has been carried out, Carter takes control.
*Carter says that The Vigils cannot let someone like Rollo intimidate them, nor can they let Renault get away with making them look bad.
*Obie shows a poster he found that morning that says: “Screw the chocolates and screw The Vigils.” Carter asks Archie, since he got them into this mess, what will he do about it.
*Archie says the solution is to get everyone in the school to sell the chocolates because then Renault will no longer be a hero, he says the way to sell is to make it popular.
*Carter wants to do something about Jerry, but Archie says to leave him alone. Carter, still unsure of Archie’s plan, says Archie is on probation until the end of the chocolate sale.
*The main idea of the chapter is to make people stop trying to intimidate the Vigils.
Chapter 28 *In summary this chapter begins with yet another football scrimmage.
*Jerry’s job is to get Carter, he successfully manages to topple Carter, but then Jerry is knocked down by an unseen person.
*As Jerry walks in the door, later that afternoon, the phone rings. When he answers it, there is only a strange chuckle. The same thing happens that night.
*The next day, Jerry’s locker has been vandalized. His poster has paint all over it and his gym sneakers have been slashed.
*That night at 2am he receives the same strange phone call. Jerry’s father answers the phone and says the same thing happened the night before, but Jerry had not woken up.
*The next day, Brother Andrew tells Jerry that he does not have his major assignment for the class, a landscape painting. Jerry handed it in the previous day; the project took him weeks.
* Brother Andrew says if the project did not turn up, he would fail Jerry. Chapter 29 *Brian Cochran is thrilled by the upswing in chocolate sales.
*After tallying the totals, he cannot wait to report the good news to Brother Leon.
*He cannot think of a specific thing that has made the sales rise, except that the sale has suddenly become popular.
*Part of this chapter was set in the hallway where Brian has noticed The Vigils tracking down kids with low sales, he has also noticed how The Vigils are assigning the credit of selling to random students they have chosen, not to the boys that actually sold the chocolates.




Chapter 30 *While it is no longer necessary for Brother Leon to call the boys names for the chocolate, since they now deal directly with Brian, he continues to call them and make a big deal out of the process.
*Even boys who have sold no chocolates are praised because The Vigils have attributed some sales to them.
*The Goober has stopped selling altogether, even though he sold twenty-seven boxes already.
*After Leon calls Renault and Jerry responds “No” Harold Darcy asks Leon if he will ask Jerry why he is not selling chocolates like everyone else.
*Harold thinks it is everyone’s right to know, since Jerry is not doing his part.
*Jerry answers that it is a free country; Leon says he would like a more original answer.
*Jerry says that Leon said the sale was voluntary and he will not sell the chocolates. Another student asks if Jerry thinks he is better than the rest of them, Jerry replied he doesn’t.
*Later that afternoon, The Goober hears cheers as the poster with the chocolate sale totals is hung. Someone shouted that The Goober had sold his fifty boxes.
*The Goober is upset because he had stopped selling chocolates in support of Jerry. He considers telling them, but he is afraid. Instead, he cries. The tone is supposed to be happy instead for Goober it’s sad.
Chapter 31 *After football practice Jerry is cornered by Emile Janza and Harvey Cranch, another bully.
*Emile taunts him, Jerry doesn’t want to fight for the same reason he does not want to sell chocolates.
*He wants to make his own decisions, do his own thing.
*Emile says Jerry has a deep, dark secret he also calls him a queer.
*As Emile laughs, Jerry sees a group of guys come out from the bushes. The readers infer that the guys coming from the bushes aren't nice guys. The guys attack Jerry.

Chapter 32 *Jerry makes it home, embarrassed about what has been done to him. He takes a warm bath and hides in his room. He is badly hurt; he also receives another one of the taunting phone calls.
*Later, there are voices from outside his house, calling his name.
*The people outside are chased away by the building’s custodian.
*At 2:30am the phone rings again, Jerry and his father both wake to get it.
*Jerry’s dad says he will report the calls to the phone company in the morning.
*Jerry is still in a great amount of pain, but decides not to tell his father what has happened. *From the point of view of the reader, Jerry makes it home, embarrassed about what has been done to him.

*Archie is not happy that Emile involved other people; he did not want it to be a gang situation.
*Archie tells Emile there is no picture and to stick with him because he can use people like Emile.

Chapter 34 *The next morning Jerry feels like a ghost at school. People step far out of his way and avoid him.

*As the day passes everyone, even the teachers, act like he is invisible.
*Brian Cochran is thrilled to tell Leon that the sale is finished, 98% has been turned in. He tells Leon that, oddly, 19,950 boxes have been sold.
