Do you need one quote for both of them? Can it be a separate quote for each?

both of them would be great

Here Scout realizes that this case was over before her dad took it. I think that if we understand that Jem cried after the trial, Scout would well be speaking for both of them.

"Then Mr. Underwood's meaning became clear: Atticus had used every tool available to free men to save Tom Robinson, but in the secret courts of men's hearts Atticus had no case. Tom was a dead man the minute Mayella Ewell opened her mouth and screamed. (Chapter 25 pg 28)

Here is one I thought of for both of them. Scout and Jem think their father isn't good at anything that counts (in a child's world). When Atticus shoots the rabid dog from so far away, they realize their father is so much more,

Jem became vaguely articulate: “‘d you see him, Scout? ’d you see him just standin‘ there?... ’n‘ all of a sudden he just relaxed all over, an’ it looked like that gun was a part of him... an‘ he did it so quick, like... I hafta aim for ten minutes ’fore I can hit somethin‘...”

Thank you :), do you have one for Scout only?

The first one was from Scout's point of view.
