The episode that I choose is called “A Pickle Story” in which Aunt Bee makes a batch of nasty homemade pickles that are described in the story as “kerosene cucumbers”. They cause quite a bit of deception, lies and chaos is the characters’ lives. It is a story that raises the question is it ok to tell a social lie even though it will be benefiting the person being lied to or about. In the story we see many different types of communication from the various characters, the four I will try to identify are prosocial deception, apologies, principles of politeness and facial management techniques. In his book DeVito describes the lie of prosocial deception as “lies that are designed to benefit the person lied to, or about” (p.107).
Towards the end of the story, Jack and a few other friends defend Auggie from some seventh grade bullies and end up with some scrapes and bruises. This story is similar to the short story “Priscilla and the Wimps” because they both center around the theme of bullying and standing up for others. In “Priscilla and the Wimps”, Priscilla uses violence to stand up for Melvin, who is getting bullied by Monk. Priscilla is similar to the character, Jack, from “Wonder” and Melvin is similar to the character, Auggie, from “Wonder”. In both stories, Melvin and Auggie are frequently bullied.

The two major lady role models, Miss Maudie and Calpurnia, teach Scout ways to become a better person and understand her father. When Scout tries to chase Walter away, Jem invites him over for dinner. Walter pours an unusual amount of molasses on his food, and Scout calls him out on it. Because of her actions, Calpurnia drags Scout into the kitchen and tells her that it “[d]on’t matter who they are, anybody [who] sets foot in [her] house’s [her] comp[a]ny” (Lee 18). Although Calpurnia scolded Scout aggressively, she does it to help Scout perceive another’s situation.
The harassment included the bank vice president Taylor following the plaintiff into the bathroom, fondling the plaintiff, then pressuring her to have sex with him(Walsh p303). During the trial, it was revealed that Vinson with the fear of losing her job had sexual intercourse with Taylor several times and he sexually harassed her and made suggestive remarks. The allegations were denied by Taylor and stated that the dispute was business related. The bank also revealed that they were not aware of Taylor’s behavior. The vice president also created what the court decided was an objective and “hostile environment”(Walsh p302).

He harasses Standish (Molly Ringwald) about her virginity and wants to know about her sex life.

If men saw what happens to them if they abuse anyone, then they wouldn’t abuse in the first place, but in the novel, there wasn’t any so a man like Rasheed did it when he
As the mother is telling Dee that she cannot have the quilts, she shows her surprise when Dee "gasps like a bee had stung her" (64). By using this simile, the mother shows her revulsion at the new and artificial personality her daughter has adopted. As the family talks over dinner, the mother states about Dee that "she talked a blue streak over the sweet potatoes" (62). Dee is complimenting her mother's food, yet immediately afterwards, she asks for a churn top, a dasher, and some old quilts that she had not wanted recently before. This metaphor tells the reader that the compliments Dee gave her were empty and fake.
