"All right, you can come out now." (Bradbury, 146)
"It's all right."(147)
"You're welcome here." (147)
During this scene, Montag has just burned down his house. He knows that he will go to jail if he doesn't do something. Beatty was standing there like he was waiting for Montag to shoot him. Montag then shoots him with a flame, leaving Beatty to burn alive.
After Montag burns Beatty alive, he knows that he cannot stay. He sits on the gravel and cries after he realizes everything he has done. He gets to thinking that Beatty actually wanted to die. He remembers that he just stood there not trying to defend himself. Any person not wanting to die would take action however, Beatty did not.
When Montag is on the run, he makes it to the train tracks. He follows them along to see a light in the distance with some people around it. Montag remembers that other people who are on the run may have followed the abandoned train tracks too. The men know that Montag is there. They reassure him that he is ok, and tell him that he can come out.
