If we enter the code in this computer, we will be able to escape!
I would rather die than go back...
Thomas, Minho, and Alby were all gathered in the glade, and Thomas mentioned that he wanted to be a runner. He was not sure why, but he decided that he wanted to be one. "I want to be a runner" (Dashner 100). He studied the runners every time they came back from the maze. Eventually, Minho showed Thomas what he would need to do in order to be a runner.
We need to stay close and let the others fight off the grievers...
Thomas, Minho, Alby, and the gladers made it to the cliff. "Pack of grievers (...) the cliff" (Dashner 333).They heard grievers that were ready to attack. They had to try and avoid them. "We'll keep them off until you scream for us to follow" (Dashner 334). They were frightened as they heard this noise. They eventually went down and fought against the grievers. It was not a simple task...
Minho! You made it!
Yeah... I am a bit cut and bruised, but I made it... The others, Didn't..
Thomas, Teresa and Alby were at the computer that they had to punch the code into the computer. In order to escape the maze, they need to put the code into the computer, however, Alby did not want to escape. "But Alby had already made it to the monsters and jumped on top of one" (Dashner 333). He wanted to stay in the glade because his "normal" life was not his favorite. He said that he would rather die than go back to his normal life.
Thomas and Teresa needed to try to enter the code and let the others fight... "We have to stay close together he told Teresa" (Dashner 336). If they dared to fight against the grievers, they can die very easily, and it would all be over.
Thomas and Teresa were very happy to see Minho and how he made it. (...) Monster (...) jumped on top of it" (Dashner 333). The rest of the gladers, however, didn't make it. They had died or have been very injured due to the grievers. There was no time to go back.
Thomas, Chuck, and Teresa were all gathered in a very dark room that seemed like a tube. Chuck had pushed a button that seemed to make all of the grievers disappear. "They said you'd turn off once they punch in the code!" (Dashner 344).They were all alone in this very dark and quiet tube.
