The mechanical hound (technology) slept but did not sleep, lived but did not live in its gently humming, gently vibrating (Figurative Language). Even if Montag was being nice to the hound the hound was very aggressive towards Montag and growled at him. They were at the fire station.
No, no boy
Montag comes into the firehouse and starts to tell Captain Beattie his encounter with the mechanical hound. He also tries to figure out what happened.
Someone must have programmed the hound to feel irritated (challenging vocab) towards me.

Once the firemen raided the old woman's house, who lived in the old part of the city, Montag stole a book. "Montag's hand moved like a mouth, crushed the book with wild devotion" (Challenging vocab). (Figurative Language).
"My hand had done it all, my hand, with a brain on its own, with a conscience and a curiosity in each trembling finger had turned thief." (Significant Quote).
This is also one of Montag's transformations.
The old lady was willing to die with her books and Montag didn't understand why. She used a kitchen match (technology) to light the house on fire.
I will die with my books.
Lets get out of here!!
Why did she do that?
Once Montag went back home, he asked Mildred something that made him realize he wasn't in love. This is another of Montag's transformations.
