    The lines are...

    "He would probably have poured it into his milk glass had I not asked what the sam hill he was doing..."

    "Atticus shook his head at me again, 'But he's gone and drowned his dinner in syrup' I protested. 'He's poured it all over-' It was then that Calpurnia requested my presence in the kitchen."

    Then Calpurnia's lines are"

    "There's some folks who don't eat like us, but you ain't called on to contradict 'em at the table when they don't. That boy's yo' company and if he wants to eat up the table-cloth you let him, you hear?"

    [Scout: 'he ain't company Cal, he's just a Cunningham']

    "Hush your mouth! Don't matter who they are, anybody sets foot in this house's yo' company, and don't you let me catch you remarkin' on their ways like you was so high and mighty! Yo' folks might be better'n the Cunninghams but it don't count for nothin' the way you're discracin' 'em - if you can't act fit to eat at the table you can just set here and eat in the kitchen!"

    Hope that helps!

    I recommend going on to, searching for To Kill a Mockingbird, then Search Inside the book, put in the keywords of the page number you want, then find the quote exactly.

    It works for most books, but you can't view more than 5 or so pages, so get to the right one.

    Sorry I don't remember that off the top of my head, I actually returned my book today
