Most important line in Huck Fin?
Im doing a summer reading assignment, and for one part, i need to find the most important sentence that best represents an entire theme in the novel. Any suggestions?

The above link goes to the most significant scene in the novel, when Huck decides not to tell Miss Watson where Jim has run off to. The most important line in the novel would probably be the last one ("All right, then, I'll go to hell") but you need the context for the line to make sense (actually, Huck has done the "right" thing and probably would not go to hell for freeing Jim from slavery).

When Jim tells Huck that Huck's dad was the body in the floating house. Huck has spent the entire book running from his dad and now he doesn't have to anymore. He's free to "go west."

you might want to check the exact words, that is from memory.
