Your father's no better than the niggers and trash he works for!
Calpurnia brings Jem and Scout to an all-black church for the first time. They were so surprised at how welcoming everyone was; even though they were the only white people there.
After hearing about Atticus' new defendant; an accused black rapist named Tom Robinson, the town's people started to loathe him. One day after coming from town, Mrs. Dubose, a mean, elderly woman confined to a wheelchair, tells Jem and Scout a nasty remark about their father that makes Jem lose his patience for the first time with her.
Jem grabbed the baton he had just bought for Scout with his birthday money, and destroyed all of Mrs. Dubose's camellia bushes. When Atticus got home, he told Jem to go and apologize to Mrs. Dubose. The punishment he got was to read for two hours everyday after school and on Saturdays for one month.
Tom had been moved to the county jail just before the trial, so Atticus sat in front of the door that evening. A group of men appeared to lynch Tom, but Atticus blocks them. Suddenly Scout, Jem, and Dill arrive looking for Atticus. Scout then started to speak to one of the guys about knowing his son from school. After seeing her innocence, the man told the mob to move out.
On the day of the trial, Scout, Jem and Dill sat in the courthouse and watched the trial. During the trial, they thought that Atticus might actually win, because of his defense points and how he proved Mayella Ewell, the victim, and Bob Ewell, her father, untrustworthy. He also proved that the physical evidence of bruises on the left side of her face didn't add up, because Tom couldn't even use his left arm.
Tom told the jury a very convincing story, that Mayella tried to seduce him and that her father caught her and beat her up, and she accused Tom of rape.
