Mockingbird"Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird" (Lee 90).

White Camellias"Thought you could kill my Snow-on-the-Mounrain, did you? Well, Jessie says the top's growing right back out. Next time, you'll know how to do it right, won't you? You'll pull it up by the roots, won't you?" (Lee 110).

Tim Johnson"Tim was a liver-colored bird dog, the pet of Maycomb" (Lee 92)."Don't you go near that dog, you understand? Don't go near him, he's just as dangerous as he is alive" (Lee 97).
