In Maycomb Alabama, there was a young girl named Scout and her older brother Jem. They passed in front of an elderly lady's house, Mrs. Dubose's house, to get where they wanted to go. Unfortunately, Mrs. Dubose always says mean things to them when they pass by.
Scout, what are you doing in those overalls?! You should be in a dress and camisole, young lady! You'll be waiting on tables if no one changes your ways!
We could do nothing to please her.
Hey, Mrs. Dubose.
Don't you say hey to me, you ugly girl! You say good afternoon, Mrs. Dubose!
She's an old lady and she's ill. You just hold your head high and be a gentleman. It's your job not to let her make you mad.
Jem, you broke Miss Maudie's scuppernong arbor! If you don't get sent to the reform school by the end of the week, my name's not Dubose!
Yes indeed, what happens when a Finch goes against his raising? I'll tell you! Your father's no better than the Negroes and trash he works for!
