  • marry me scout!
  • yes!
  • He probably is if he hasn't gone mad yet.
  • Why would Boo go mad?
  • What is Boo Radley like? Is he dead?
  • Exactly. A sad life it is.
  • First, his name is Arthur. His father was so religious that he said all pleasure was a sin and didn't let any one around him be happy.
  • That's terrible! Of course it isn't!
  • Dill proposes to Scout, but still doesn't let her play with the boys, so Scout decides to go visit her neighbor Miss Maudie Atkinson.
  • I'm not sure this is a good idea.
  • Miss Maudie gardens a lot, so that's where Scout finds her. She asks about Boo Radley.
  • I'm scared!
  • Watch out for Atticus!
  • Miss Maudie explains to scout that Nathan Radley, Arthur (boo) Radley's father was a 'foot-washing' baptist, and was so religious that he believed it a sin to be happy.
  • I don't want to be a lawyer!
  • Leave him alone!
  • Scout goes back home, and Jem and Dill tell her that they are going to put a note in the Radley's via fishing note asking Boo to come out for an ice cream. Scout is unsure, but after being teased she agrees to go.
  • We are leaving a note for Boo!
  • Jem tries to get the note in through a crack in the shutters and warns the other kids to keep a lookout for anyone, especially Atticus.
  • Atticus discovers them and tricks Jem into admitting his plan using a lawyer trick. Jem gets mad at him and says that he doesn't want to be anything like his father, or be a lawyer like him.
