This conversation between Scout and Cal appears in Chapter 12. Since Atticus is away attending an emergency session of the state legislature, Cal wonders aloud what she is going to do with Jem and Scout on Sunday, her day off. Scout reassures Cal that they will be fine alone and that Atticus left them money for the collection plate in church. Cal, however, remembers one of the children's past adventures at church when they were alone and invites them to go to church with her. Going to church with Cal draws Scout closer to her. While they are walking home after the service, Scout asks Cal if she can visit her at her own home. Cal replied, "Anytime you want to . . . . We'd be glad to have you."
