- 1)During the trial, Drummond argues with Brady that the right to think is on trial. “This man wishes to be accorded the same privilege as a sponge”(95). Drummond feels that all men have the right to think even when…
- 2)Biondello describes the wedding to the waiting guests he explains, in shock, that Petruchio is wearing "[a] pair of boots that have been candle-cases, one buckled, another laced; an old rusty sword"(III.ii.44-45). Biondello clearly finds...

1)While Drummond has Brady on the witness stand, Drummond argues that the ability to think is important to existence:
The individual human mind. In a child’s power to master the multiplication table there is more sanctity than all your shouted “Amens!”, “Holy, Holies!” and Hosannahs!” An idea is a greater monument than a cathedral. And the advance of man’s knowledge is more of a miracle than any stick turned to snakes, or the parting of waters!(93)
Drummond identifies the ablity to think as…
1. "_________ derived a reasonable income from law. He likes Maycomb, he was Maycomb County born and bred; he knew his people, they knew him, and because of Simon Finch’s industry, he was related by blood or marriage to nearly every family in town."
2. "____________ was something else again. She was all angles and bones; she was nearsighted; she squinted; she squinted; her hand was wide as a bed slat and twice as hard. She was always ordering me out of the kitchen, asking me why I couldn’t behave as well as Jem when she knew he was older, and calling me home when I wasn’t ready to come."
3. "___________ was a curiosity. He wore blue linen shorts that buttoned to his shirt, his hair was snow white and stuck to his head like duckfluff; he was a year my senior but I towered over him. As he told us the tale his blue eyes would lighten and darken; his laugh was sudden and happy; he habitually pulled at a cowlick in the centre of his forehead."
4. "___________ was about six-and - a-half feet tall, judging from his tracks; he dined on raw squirrel and any cats he could catch, that’s why his hands were bloodstained- if you ate an animal raw, you could never wash the blood off. There was a long jagged scar that ran across his face; what teeth he head were yellow and rotten; his eyes popped, and he drooled most of the time."
5. "___________ was a neighbourhood scold, who said she knew the whole thing."
6. "____________ was no more than twenty-one. She had bright auburn hair, pink cheeks, and wore crimson finger-nail polish. She also wore high-heeled pumps and a red-and-white striped dress. She looked nd smelled like a peppermint drop.
7. "____________ died from a sudden heart attack. They said it ran in her family."
8. "_____________was another member of the population who didn’t know where his next meal was coming from, he was a born gentleman. He put his hand under her elbow and led (the teacher) to the front of the room."
9. " _____________ was the filthiest human I had ever seen. His neck was dark gray, the backs of his hands were rusty, and his fingernails were black deep into quick. He peered at (the teacher) from a fist-sized clean space on his face."
10. "_____________ was permitted to hunt and trap out of season...It’s against the law...but when a man spends his relief checks on green whiskey his children have a way of crying from hunger pains."
11. " __________ lived two doors up the street from us’ neighbourhood opinion was unanimous that she was the meanest old woman who ever lived."
12. "____________ hated her house; time spent indoors was time wasted. She was a widow, a chameleon lady who worked in her flower beds in an old straw hat and men’s coveralls, but after her five o’clock bath she would appear on the porch and reign over the street in magisterial beauty."
13. "______________ was a head shorter than Atticus; the baby of the family, he was younger than Aunty. He and Aunty looked alike, but he made better use of his face; we were never wary of his sharp nose and chin."
14. "______________ was the sheriff of Maycomb County. He was as tall as Atticus, but thinner. He was long-nosed, wore boots with shiny metal eye-holes, boot pants and a lumber jacket. His belt had a row of bullets sticking in it. He carried a heavy rifle."
15. "_____________ got his arm badly broken at the elbow when he was nearly thirteen. When he healed, and his fears of never being able to play football were assuaged, he was seldom self-conscious about his injury. His left arm was somewhat shorter than his right; when he stood or walked, the back of his hand was at right angles to his body, his thumb parallel to his thigh."
16. "___________ two yellow drugstore straws ran from his mouth to the depths of a brown paper bag.
17. ____________ had ridden safely to the auditorium with his parents, dropped off his cow costume, then ventured down by the Radley place to scare Jem and Scout.
18. ____________ made a job for Helen. He didn’t really need her, but he said he felt right bad about the way things turned out.
1. _____________ So, it took an eight-year-old child to bring’em to their senses, didn’t it? That proves something, that a gang of wild animals can be stopped, simply because they’re still human."
2. _____________ The thing is, what I’m trying to say is- they do get on better without me, I can’t help them any. They ain’t mean. They buy me everything I want."
3. _____________ I most positively can (write). I most positively will (write my name). How do you think I sign my relief checks?
4. _____________ They’ve gone? You’re damn tootin’ they won’t (bother you any more). Had you covered all the time, Atticus.
5. ___________ I think I’m beginning to understand something. I think I’m beginning to understand why Boo Radley’s stayed shut up in the house all this time...it’s because he wants to stay inside.
6. _____________ Whatcha going to be when you grow up, Jean Louise? A lawyer? Why shoot, I thought you wanted to be a lawyer, you’ve already commenced going to court.
7. _____________ I think I’ll be a clown... I’m gonna be a new kind of clown. I’m gonna stand in the middle of the ring and laugh at the folks. Just looka yonder. Every on of ‘em oughta be ridin’ on broomsticks.
8.____________You ain’t got no business bringing white chillin’ here-they got their own church, we got our’n. It is our church, ain’t it, Miss Cal?
9. ____________ I wanted you to see what real courage is , instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand.
10. ____________ Always wanted a smaller house, Jem Finch. Gives me more yard. Just think, I’ll have more room for my azaleas now.
11. _____________Jem, see if you can stand in Bob Ewell’s shoes a minute.
12.____________ She wants me to come by every afternoon after school and Saturdays and read to her out loud for two hours.
13. ____________ First of all, if you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you’ll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view–
14.____________ Well, it’d be sort of like shootin’ a mockingbird, wouldn’t.
15.____________ As you grow older, you’ll see white men clear black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don’t you forget it–whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, that man is trash.
