Analysis: I think this scene is hinting at the introduction of something, or maybe someone, that we have yet to encounter within the story. As for other possibilities, maybe the person who shot at them had a slight tinge of regret and wanted to do something nice in return.
"When I went back they were folded across the fence... like they were expectin' me." (Lee 66)
Analysis: I feel as though this scene is hinting at Nathan Radley not wanting Jem and Scout to have contact with whoever keeps putting items in the trees hole. Maybe Nathan Radley knows who's putting the items there and wants to make sure they can never contact anybody from the outside world.
"It ain't even sick?" (Lee 71)
"Is that tree dyin'?" (Lee 71)
"That tree's as healthy as you are, Jem." (Lee 71)
"Why no, son, I don't think so. Look at the leaves, they're all green and full, no brown patches anywhere-" (Lee 71)
Analysis: The lesson in this scene is to not believe everything you hear. People always talk and say that Boo Radley is a psycho and put him out to sound emotionless. Yet he was so kind as to provide Scout with a source of warmth so she wouldn't freeze.
"Boo Radley. You were so busy looking at the fire you didn't know it when he put the blanket around you." (Lee 82)
"Thank who?" (Lee 81)
Analysis: This scene is important because it teaches Scout to treat everyone equal. That no matter what race, we are all still part of the same race... the human race.
"I'm simply defending a Negro-his name's Tom Robinson." (Lee 86)
Analysis: This scenes importance tells the struggles Scout endures as a girl. People tell her to dress and act like a girl but Jem and Dill will exclude her from hanging out with them if she does so.
"What are you doing in those overalls? You should be in a dress and camisole, young lady! You'll grow up waiting on tables if somebody doesn't change your ways." (Lee 117)
Analysis: The lesson in this scene is to not let your emotions dictate your actions, to think logically. When Jem cut Mrs. Dubose's camellias he didn't think about all the work she put in to grow them and to keep them healthy, he just had this rush of undeniable rage and acted in the moment.
"Jem opened the box. Inside, surrounded by wads of damp cotton, was a white, waxy, perfect, camellia." (Lee 128)
