Tom and Atticus don't have too much of a relationship. What they have is a certain sense of duty and respect for each other. Atticus sees an innocent mockingbird-type figure, a decent man who helped a white girl in a pathetic situation. Tom sees a white man who is enlightened and intelligent probably beyond any man, black or white, that he has known. We don't see the two interact very much but we understand the respect and appreciation they both have for each other.
