Quotes

Atticus Finch: I remember when my daddy gave me that gun. He told me that I should never point it at anything in the house; and that he'd rather I'd shoot at tin cans in the backyard. But he said that sooner or later he supposed the temptation to go after birds ...


Goofs

When Atticus carries the sleeping Scout down the hall to her bedroom, after returning from their visit to the Robinson's, he takes her all the way to the last room on the left, which is actually Jem's room. Actually, it is a hallway. Calpurnia is holding the door to the house open when Atticus reaches the porch revealing a door with a 15-pane French window at the end of the entryway (at 0:48:03). Atticus carries Scout all the way to this door and turns left, not into a bedroom but into a hallway to the children's rooms. Their bedrooms were shown when Scout looks at Atticus' watch: the camera is pointing from Scout's window, across Scout's bed at the solid door to the dining room in the center of the frame, just beyond Scout's table lamp (at 0:13:28), with the dining room visible in the background on the right side of the frame and the wall behind Scout's headboard along the left side of the frame. After kissing Scout goodnight and turning her lamp out, Atticus swings the dining room door from our left to our right (at 0:15:19) revealing the solid door to Jem's bedroom which he enters walking to our left, tells Jem goodnight, shuts off Jem's light, comes out, closes Jem's door and walks down a hall to our right, which would be the hall into which he turned at 0:48:10 carrying Scout.
