HI there! My name is Jean Louise Finch, but you can call me scout! I've grown up without a female influence my whole life so i'm pretty tomboyish!
Scout Can Be So Bold, She Steps Out Of Line
Walter, shame on you for not having your lunch and not taking my money! You little prick!
Ma'am! That's not fair! He's a Cunningham, he ain't got a quarter to repay you. DEAL WITH IT!!!!
We're all gonna die!
Scout Can Be Complicit
Shut up, Scout! I got this...
Oh no! Be careful Jem!
"Our mother died when I was two, so I never felt her absence." (Lee 7)
She Could Work On Controlling That Temper
YOU TAKE THAT BACK RIGHT NOW!
Your dad's a N***** Lover!
"“That’s okay, ma’am, you’ll get to know all the county folks after a while. The Cunninghams never took anything they can’t pay back—no church baskets and no scrip stamps. They never took anything off of anybody, they get along on what they have. They don’t have much, but they get along on it.” (Lee 26)
Scout Is Worried About The Possible Shame That Her Family Faces
Of course I do, but it's not a bad thing.
Jem said placidly, " we are gonna give a note to boo radley." "Okay, okay, but I don't wanna watch." "Yes you will, you'll watch the back end of the lot and Dill's gonna watch the front of the house an' the up the street, an' if anybody comes, he'll ring the bell. That clear?" "All right then. What'd you write him? (Lee 62)
Despite the lack of her mother...
"YOU CAN JUST take that back boy!" This order was given to me by Cecil Jacobs, was the beginning of a rather thin time for Jem and me. My fists were clenched and I was ready to let fly." (Lee 99)
"But I was worrying another bone. "Do all lawyers defend n-Negroes, Atticus?" "Of course they do, Scout." "Then why did Cecil Jacobs say you defend niggers? He made it sound like you were runnin' a still." (Lee 100)
Atticus, You don't defend N****** right?
"He ain't company, Cal, he's just a Cunningham-" "Hush your mouth! Don't matter who they are, anybody sets foot in this house's yo' comp'ny, and Don't let me catch you remarkin' on their ways like you so high and mighty!" (Lee 33)
I feel like Scout is very intuitive and she is learning and absorbing everything around her. With influences like Calpurnia, Miss Maudie, and wise old Atticus, she can futher develop into a wise young lady as the novel continues.
