Quote #4

It wasn't like Amma to side with everyone else in town, considering that was usually the wrong side of things. (9.14.43)

People within a society fighting against each other. Hmmm. Sounds kind of like the Civil War to us. Is there a healthy level of internal disagreement in a town or should everyone always agree?

Quote #5

"It's not my fault that I have a penchant for good breeding, reasonable intelligence, and passable personal hygiene." (9.14.205)

Another zinger from Macon against the dirty, dumb, inbred residents of Gatlin. That's how he sees them anyway.

Quote #6

"It was one thing for me to make fun of Gatlin. It was different coming from Macon Ravenwood. It came from a different place." (9.14.219)

Whoa, where'd all this Gatlin pride come from, Ethan? Technically, Macon Ravenwood has been in town much, much longer than Ethan has, so which of them has more of a right to make fun of it?
