Calpurnia scolds Scout for embarrassing Walter during lunch. Walter pours syrup all over his food and Scout remarks on it. Calpurnia tells Scout that Walter is their guest and it is rude to humiliate a guest. Scout learns that perhaps she should see things from Walter's point of view. He usually does not get much food his meal at the Finch house was uncommon for him. Scout also learns that a host must respect their guest.
