"Didn't you think she should have had a doctor, immediately?" (200)
I didn't think of it and it would have cost me five dollars.
"He keeps on callin' me ma'am an sayin' Miss Mayella." (207)
Mayella Ewell is wrongly accused of raping Tom Robinson. In this instance, the trial's rhetoric is examined.
"You did all this for not one penny?" (225)
Atticus interrogates Bob Ewell about his usage of logos, as well as why no doctor was contacted and how Tom Robinson could have smacked Mayella on the right side of her face with his unusable left arm. Bob Ewell, on the other hand, uses pathos to disparage the whole black community.
Atticus's Jury Closing Remarks
"Gentlemen, a court is no better than each man of you sitting before me on this jury... In the name of God, do your duty." (234)
Atticus tries to persuade Mayella that it was her father, not Tom Robinson, who had beaten her. Mayella employs pathos by sobbing and refuses to answer any further questions.
The Final Decision
Tom Robinson employs ethos by simply presenting the truth, but his attempt agitates the courtroom since people of color in Maycomb were not expected to feel sorry for white people.
"Yes, suh. I felt right sorry for her..." (225)
Again, Atticus appeals to the jurors with ethos, pleading with them to make the proper choice.
Tom Robinson is found guilty, according to Judge Taylor. Despite Atticus' best efforts, inherent prejudice against people of race effectively proclaimed Tom guilty before the jury even deliberated.
