7.4.3. "I told him what i thought, but i couldn't in truth say that we had more that a good chance.

As they passed under a streetlight, Atticus reached out and massaged Jem's hair, his one gesture of affection" That night Jem snuck out because he was worried about his father, Scout thougjt Jem would get in trouble for not obeying Atticus, but it is quite the opposite. This quote shows that Atticus thinks Jem was brave and courageous for refusing to leave and stay when his father was in danger.

8.3.2. Mature "Jem was certainly never cruel to animals, but i had never know his charity to embrace, the insect world. "Why couldn't i mash him?" I asked. "Because they dont bother you," Jem answered in the darkness. He had turned out his reading light. Later in the novel, this passage surround how Jem has grown and matured, and his values frequently contrast with Scout's. Scout sees Jem as a fatherly figure at this point, because she learns from Jem and her childish comments are often questioned by Jem, which similar to her relationship with Atticus.
