Although Jem stares at Walter while he proceeds to pour molasses all over his meat and vegetables, he doesn't say anything. Scout, being the precocious girl she is, asks him what he's doing. I think this is the only difference between how the two children treat Walter. Scout verbalizes what Jem is thinking and gets a fierce talking to by Calpurnia. Although Scout is less restrained than Jem, they both reflect their father's tolerance at the dinner table.
