Mapping Huck's Adventures

Episode 2"By- and- by he rolled out and jumped on his feet looking wild and he see me and went for me...saying he would kill me" (39). This quote shows how Huck is threatened by his father especially when he is drunk. It explains why Huck wants to live on his own, afterall he can not even trust his iwn father.

Episode 5"Each person had there own nigger to wait on them--Buck, too. My nigger had a monstrous easy time, because I warn't used to having anybody do anything for me, but Buck's was on the jump most of the time" (118). This shows Huck's appreciation for whay he has. He has lived his whole life practically on his own. While living at the Grangerfords' he has a particularlly hard time getting used to the fact of someone waiting on him. It also shows how common slaves were and the wealth of the Grangerfords--being ablle to afford all those slaves.

Episode 1"All I wanted was to go somewheres; all I wanted was a change, I warn't particular"(6.)This shows Huck's reuw colors. Although he is beginning to conform to hisnew lifestyle at the Widow's he is already beginning to get sick of it. He missses the relaxed and comfortable ways of living.

Episode 6" I never said nothing, never let on; kept it to myself ; it's the best let them have their way" (137).This quote shows Huck's priorities and his maturity. He knows it's not worth it to call out the "Duke" or the "King" on their fraud. Huck knows its no use to tell Jim so it was in his best interest just to continue on with their journey.

Episode 7" He was thinking about his wife and children, away up yonder, and he was low and homesick; because he hadnn't been away from home before in his life...(167)This quote represents a turning point in Huck's mentality. He realizes that maybe blacks are not that different, and that event hough they have a different skin color, they are still human and still have human feelings. He realizes that slaves can be compassionate too. Jim cares more about his family than Pap cares about Huck.

Episode 8" Well, the man gathered around and sympathized them... It was enough to make a body ashamed of the human race" (195)This quote is significant because it shows the evolution of Huck. It shows the respect he has gained for all people of other races, primarily African Americans. He finds the way white people treat others and the way they feel entilted and superior to be pitiful.

Episode 9"All right, then, I'll go to hell" (228)This quote signifies how Huck gives up on conforming to Southern society. He does not understand why blacks are considered to be far less superior when in reality they are equal and sometimes they are even better people than the white folk. This is the piont where Huck relizes just how important Jim really is to him.

Episode 10" And you want to water it with your tears.' Why, I got plenty of spring water, Mars Tom.' 'You don't want spring water; you want to water it with your tears. It's the way they always do"(277). This quote is when Tom Sawyer makes Jim do all these crazy things so he and Huck can help him escape the "right" way, like they do in all his adventure books. This makes Huck realize how immature Tom still is and also makes the audience dislike Tom, who is supposed to be the " good educated white boy".
