Equality and International find a hole in the ground when gathering papers and rags that the wind blew. Equality decides that he wants to explore this hole when he comments, "we shall go down," while International wants to report their findings (Rand 31).
Equality wanted so badly to be sent to the Home of the Scholars that his, "...hands trembled under the blankets at night," (Rand 24). Despite this being what he wanted, he was embarrassed because it was evil to wish something for himself in his society.
Equality spots Liberty over a hedge working in a field. He is in awe of her beauty and he thinks to himself, "their hair was as golden as the sun," which is the point which he decides to nickname her golden one (Rand 39).
His lips are still on my hands!?
Equality thinks back on a time that will forever be stitched into his brain when thinking about the Transgressor being burned at the Pyre.

While in the tunnel one day, Equality was cutting open a dead frog when it jerked. He notes that,"...it had been the metal of out knife which had sent a strange power to the copper through the brine of the frogs body," which is the point in which he discovers electricity (Rand 52).
Equality meets liberty and says to her, "our dearest one, do not obey us," which causes her a lot of joy (Rand 56). She then offers him water which he takes but when he finishes his lips do not leave her hands.
