Dandelion Wine Chapter 22

By Ray Bradbury

Chapter 22

  • Doug and Tom are chillin' in their room before bed, doing the notebook thing.
  • Doug asks Tom to promise him one thing: that he will stick around, even though sometimes Doug hates him. He suggests that if they should grow "real old—say forty or forty-five," they should go own a gold mine out West and sit around smoking corn silk and growing beards. 
  • Tom says Doug can depend on him. 
  • Doug's having a case of the Deep Thoughts, like he does, and he tells Tom he's not so worried about him; it's the way God runs the world. 
  • You can't accuse Doug of sweating the small stuff. 
  • "He's all right, Doug," says Tom. "He tries."
