Slaughterhouse-Five

Slaughterhouse-Five

by Kurt Vonnegut

Slaughterhouse-Five Chapter 2, Section 14 Summary

  • On the third day of their wanderings behind enemy lines, someone shoots at the four guys.
  • Three of them manage to duck into a ditch for cover, but Billy just stands there like an idiot. He seems to think it's the rules of fair play that he should give the marksman another chance.
  • Roland Weary, the antitank gunner, yells at Billy to get out of the way, "you dumb motherfucker" (2.14.3).
  • Billy is so shocked that he gets down off the road.
