  • "Thank you, Arthur. Thank you for my children."
  • For his performance as Atticus, Harper Lee gave Gregory Peck a pocket watch that belonged to her father, the man Atticus was based on. When Peck accepted his Best Actor award, he was wearing the watch.
    • For added points, the watch was stolen from Peck's bag at a train station one day, and he was so ashamed that for years he didn't admit it to Lee. When she finally did find out, however, she didn't make a big deal of it because: "It's just a watch."
  • "Hey, Boo."
  • Mary Badham, who played Scout in the film, kept in contact with Gregory Peck after the filming ended. She would always call him "Atticus".
  • The scene added for the film where Scout and Jem discuss their memories of their mother, as Atticus silently listens.
