"Where are you two going at this time of day? Playing hooky, I supposed. I'll just call up the principal and tell him!
"Aw, it's Saturday, Mrs. Dubose."
"Makes no difference if it's Saturday. I wonder if your father knows where you are?"
"Mrs. Dubose, we've been goin' to town by ourselves since we were this high."
"Don't you lie to me! Jeremy Finch, Maudie Atkinson told me you broke down her scuppernong arbor this morning. She's gonna tell your father and then you'll wish you never saw the light of day! If you aren't sent to the reform school before next week, my name's no Dubose!
Jem, who hadn't been near Miss Maudie's scuppernong arbor since last summer... knew Miss Maudie wouldn't tell Atticus if he had."
