  • A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest Gaines Scene 1, Ch.23 pg. 182.
  • Scene 2, Ch.23 pg. 183
  • Scene 3, Ch.23 pg. 184
  • This moment is when Tante Lou, Miss Emma, and Reverend Ambrose are angry at Grant for giving Jefferson the radio. But Grant says " Last Friday was the first time he ever asked me a question without accusing me for his condition. He wants something of his own before he dies and that radio is his. Did he tell you he wants a gallon of ice cream for his last supper because he has never had enough?"
  • Scene 4, Ch.23 pg. 184
  • This moment is when Grant is talking to Miss Emma but Tante Lou and Reverend Ambrose are still there to. "All I know, Miss Emma, is that last Friday was the first he didn't call himself a hog." When Jefferson didn't call himself a hog on Friday when Grant went to see him it meant that Jefferson was finally starting to feel like a man.
  • Scene 5, Ch.23 pg. 185
  • This moment is when Grant goes to visit Jefferson in jail. When Grant enters the room the radio is playing and he ask Jefferson "How's the radio?" Jefferson says "All right" Grant says "Did you get Randy over the weakened?" Jefferson says "Yeah I caught him." This is the first time Jefferson an Grant are just taking and not arguing about anything. They are just having a conversation like they would if Jefferson wasn't in jail.
  • Scene 6, Ch.23 pg. 186
  • This moment is when Grant and Jefferson are talking. Grant talks about how the last time Miss Emma came to see Jefferson he wouldn't go down to the dayroom to eat with them, so they had to come to his cell and stand. So Grant ask Jefferson "When they come back, can you meet them in there, Jefferson? She needs that." Than Jefferson says " All right." Than Grant said " You'll do it for me, for her?" and he said "All right." This is important because all Grant had to do was ask Jefferson nicely and he ageed there was no arguing back.
  • In this moment Grant said to Jefferson "She would love that, Jefferson. And Reverend Ambrose will you let him talk to you?" and Jefferson said " All right." This is important because Jefferson is like Grant he believes in God but not certain aspects of God and the things that have to do with God. So when Grant asked him to talk to Reverend Ambrose that was kind of like a jump for Jefferson to start believing more in God.
  • At this moment Grant is getting ready to leave the cell the he was in with Jefferson. When Grant is about to walk out the door Jefferson says " Tell-- tell the children thank you for the pe-pecans," he stammered. This is important because it showed that Jefferson was thankful for what Grant had done to get the pecans for him and that we was actually going to eat them and not just et the guards give them away to the other prisoners.
