The word "bobbed" is used at least once within the novel. At the end of Chapter 6, as Scout describes Jem returning after retrieving his pants from the Radley yard.

"There he was, returning to me. His white shirt bobbed over the back fence and slowly grew larger. He came up the back steps, latched the door behind him, and sat on his cot."
