Storyboard Text

  • Atticus thinks that the children are mistreating Boo, when he's done nothing. He tells Jem and Scout to stop tormenting him.
  • Hmm...
  • "I certainly am. I do my best to love everybody... I'm hard put, sometimes—baby, it's never an insult to be called what somebody thinks is a bad name. It just shows you how poor that person is, it doesn't hurt you (Lee, 144)."
  • "You aren't really a ni*ger-lover, then, are you? (Lee, 144)"
  • Nobody's about to make you go anywhere but to bed pretty soon. I'm just going over to tell Ms. Rachel you're here and ask her if you could spend the night with us--you'd like that, wouldn't you? (Lee, 188)"
  • "Mr. Finch, don't tell Aunt Rachel, don't make me go back, please sir! I'll run off again-! (Lee, 188)"
  • "When the three of us came to her house, Atticus would sweep off his hat, wave gallantly to her and say...(Lee, 133)". This shows us that even though she is a cranky old lady, Atticus still respects her and teaches Jem and Scout to respect her as well.
  • "Good evening, Mrs. Dubose. You look like a picture this evening (Lee, 133)".
  • Atticus very much appreciated the food, but he knew that Tom's black friends couldn't afford this type of gratitude. He was so happy and speechless when everyone gave this surprise to him.
  • "Tell them I'm very grateful," he said. "Tell them--tell them they must never do this again. Times are too hard..." (Lee, 286)."
  • Atticus, look at what Tom's folks brought us!!!
  • This displays/portrays how Atticus forgives and forgets about what Mr. Cunningham did to him, but still gives him a chance and he knows that he is a good person.
  • He still is our friend.
  • "Mr. Cunningham's basically a good man", "he just has his blind spots along with the rest of us (Lee, 210)."
  • "Don't call that a blind spot. (Lee, 210)." "He'da killed you last night when he first went there (Lee, 210)."
  • Is Mr. Cunningham still a friend of ours.
