Storyboard Text

  • Calpurnia reprimanding Scout for her inconsiderate comments about Walter.
  • But he was eating his food like a pig, Cal.
  • Don't criticize people, no matter who they are!
  • Scout manhandles Walter after getting in trouble at school.
  • Help me, somebody!
  • It's his fault, if he didn't make me upset, this wouldn't have happened.
  • C'mon Scout, cut it out, give him a second chance.
  • Scout impulsively takes the gum from the knot-hole and chews it.
  • It was in the tree and it looked fine so why can't I chew it?
  • Spit that gum out now! Only God knows where it has been.
  • After Scout comments negatively about Walter's table manners, Calpurnia proceeds to teach her a lesson, "...don't let me catch you remarkin' on their ways like you was so high and mighty!" (Lee 33). Instead of looking through a positive lens, Scout chooses to take a more negatively critical viewpoint on people. Additionally, Scout has no shame or filter when it comes to expressing her thoughts exhibiting her sometimes inconsiderate thinking and mindset.
  • Scout consoles Miss Maudie after she was told that she was going to hell.
  • After getting in trouble at school, Scout subsequently took her anger out on Walter, "Catching Walter Cunningham in the schoolyard gave me some pleasure, but when I was rubbing his nose in the dirt Jem came by and told me to stop" (Lee 30).  Instead of being able to restrain herself, Scout acts quickly upon her emotion instead of thinking through a situation rationally. This plays a great deal in contributing to her personality by making her a truly illogical character at times.
  • Cecil Jacobs accuses Atticus of being a "nigger-lover" for defending Tom Robinson, causing Scout to fight him out of anger.
  • After Scout finds gum in the knot-hole, she chews it without a second thought, "'[The gum] was sticking in that tree yonder, the one comin' from school.' / 'Spit it out right now!'" (Lee 44-45). Scout tends to hastily make her decisions, without giving them much thought. She chooses to perform self-serving actions while not considering the consequences that may come with these actions. By doing this, Harper Lee exaggerates the character traits that she wishes the reader to take note of.
  • Uncle Jack is upset over the fact that Scout now uses curse words.
  • Why do words like damn and hell appear in your vocabulary?
  • After "foot-washing Baptists" had told Miss Maudie that she would go to hell, Scout reassures her that this is not true, "'That ain't right, Miss Maudie. You're the best lady I know.'" (Lee 59). Although it may appear that Scout is a very negative and impulsive character, she also has a caring and sympathetic side. Scout has the ability to sense when someone needs comforting and assurance. This ability makes it so that she is a two-sided character, causing her personality to be very diverse.
  • How could that be true if you're the nicest lady in the world?
  • They told me that my flowers and I were destined for hell.
  • After the insulting of her father, Scout prepared to strike Cecil Jacobs with a blow, "My fists were clenched and I was ready to let fly" (Lee 99). Scout is portrayed by Harper Lee as a non-forgiving individual. Scout's character is exceptionally prone to instantaneous fuming anger by things small or large. By repeatedly exhibiting events in which Scout often violently reacts, Lee shows how deep-rooted Scout's irrational and impulsive characteristics are in her personality.
  • Haha, your father is a nigger-lover.
  • You'd better take that back right now! How dare you say that?
  • After hearing Scout use curse words, Uncle Jack has a talk with her, "'You like words like damn and hell, don't you?'" (Lee 105). Although Scout has a strong personality, it is easily influenced by the actions and mannerisms of others. As Scout matures, she becomes more open to how other people act and begins to ignore values that were previously acquired from Atticus and other wise individuals. In a way, Lee suggests the possibility of Scout heading towards even greater change.
  • Everyone at school says them.
