Christopher finds Wellington dead with a fork in his side. "It looked as if it was running on its side, the way dogs run when they think they are chasing a cat in a dream. . . The dog was dead. There was a garden fork sticking out of the dog". (Haddon, pg 1)
Christopher gets angry after the police officer touches him when he rolls onto the ground and hits the police officer. "I rolled back onto the lawn and pressed my forehead to the ground again and made the noise that Father calls groaning. I make this noise when there is too much information coming into my head from the outside world. . . The policeman took a hold of my arm and lifted me onto my feet. I didn't like him touching me like this. And this is when I hit him. (Haddon, pg 7-8)
Mrs. Alexander tells Christopher the truth about his mother and Mr. Shears. " When we were inside the park Mrs. Alexander stopped walking and said, " I am going to say something to you and you must promise not to tell your father that I told you this"..."Your mother, before she died, was very good friends with Mr.Shears. "I know", I said. And she said,"No, Christopher. I'm not sure that you do. I mean that they were good friends Very, very good friends". (Haddon, pg 59-60)
Christopher finds a letter addressed to him from his mother who he thought was dead. "Then I was really confused because Mother had never worked as a secretary for a firm that made things out of steel. Mother had worked as a secretary for a big garage in the center of town. And Mother never lived in London...Which meant that the letter was posted on 16 October 1997, which was 18 months after Mother had died. ( Haddon, pg 98)
Christopher reaches his mother after finding out his father killed Wellington. " I said, You weren't in, so I waited for you. And Mother said,"Christopher"...Mother held up her right hand and spread her fingers out in a fan so that I could touch her fingers." ( Haddon, pg 191)
Christopher gets a pet dog from his father as a "forgive me" present. "He walked over to the kitchen door and opened it and there was a big cardboard box on the floor and there was a blanket in it and he bent down and put his hands inside the box and he took a little sandy-colored dog out... And the dog sat in my lap and I stroked it. Then Father said, Christopher, I would never, ever do anything to hurt you... And I called the dog Sandy." (Haddon, pg 219-220)
