"We pushed open the door to the back room and found four or five little kids, about eight years or younger, huddled in a corner" (Hinton 92).
"Shut up! We're goin' to get you out" (Hinton 92)!
"'Johnny wasn't behaving at all like his old self. He looked over his shoulder and saw that the door was blocked by flames, then pushed open the window and tossed out the nearest kid" (Hinton 92).
"I picked up a kid and he promptly bit me, but I leaned out the window and dropped him as gently as I could, being in a hurry like that. A crowd was there by that time" (Hinton 93).
"For Pete's sake, get outa there! That roof's gonna cave in any minute. Forget those blasted kids" (Hinton 93).
"I didn't pay any attention, although pieces of the old rough were crashing down too close for comfort. I snatched up another kid hoping he didn't bite, and dropped him without waiting to see if he landed okay or not" (Hinton 93).
"It was hot. We dropped the last of the kids out as the front of the church started to crumble. Johnny shoved me towards the window. I leaped out the window and heard timber crashing and the flames roaring right behind me" (Hinton 93).
"Get out" (Hinton 93)!
"Then I heard Johnny scream, and as I turned to go back for him, Dally swore at me and clubbed me across the back as hard as he could, and I went down into peaceful darkness" (Hinton 93).
