Fahrenheit 451, Part 2

When was the last liberal arts college shut down? 40 Years Ago
T/F: Professor Faber thought Montag’s call was some sort of trap. True
Why did Faber’s fear dissipate when Montag was standing outside his door? He was holding a book.
What did Montag want from Faber? To destroy the Firemen, and to make copies of books.
How did Montag finally get Faber to consider really helping him? He got Faber to help by tearing out the pages in the bible.
T/F: Faber reminded Montag that people who are having fun are reluctant to become rebels. Yes, this is true, since Faber had said, “So few want to be rebels any more. And out of those few, most, like myself, scare easily. Can you dance faster than the White Clown, shout louder than ‘Mr. Gimmick’ and the parlour ‘families’? If you can, you’ll win your way, Montag. In any event, you’re a fool. People are having fun.”People are having too much fun to notice what the government is doing.
T/F The Queen Bee analogy underscored Faber’s cowardice. True. Faber talks about how he’s a “coward” and stays safe in his home all day doing nothing (and being safe), while other men out in the world die. No matter how many men are bringing out “the plan” with travelling electronic ear devices, they’ll eventually be found and killed while Faber would stay safe at home (like a Queen Bee).
What two items were exchanged before Montag left the professor’s house? The two items that were exchanged were the Bible (given to Faber from Montag) and the green bullet to put in Montag’s ear (Faber to Montag).
What is the volcano’s mouth? An Incinerator
T/F Montag pulled the plug on the living room fish bowl False
T/F Faber objected to Montag’s poetry reading. True. He didn’t want Montag to seem like a fool and blow their cover.
Which lady was affected by the original intent of the poetry? Mrs. Phelps
T/F In the late hours of the night, Faber refused to console Montag for foolishly reading poetry to the poor, silly women. False
Listening to Captain Beatty play his harp and needle Montag had what effect upon Guy? When Captain Beatty spits out all this poetry and literature at Montag, Montag becomes severely confused. Because of this, Montag is about to give up and blow his cover.
What interrupted the poker game? A Fire Alarm/ A Book Alert
Captain Beatty drove the Salamander to whose house? Montag’s House
