in the time it took them to get here from Eccles, Conmee's gotten on and off the tram, and begun walking and reading (we don't know for sure where they're coming from, some school with nuns)

Katey and Boody Dedalus shoved in the door of the closesteaming kitchen.

this is the heavily-mortgaged house the Joyce family was living in then:

we've jumped forward ~10 min to 3:25pm, skipping past many upcoming sections

— Did you put in the books? Boody asked.

Maggy has tried to pawn some of Stephen's books while Katey and Boody were at school

James had moved out in March after beginning 'Stephen Hero' there

Maggy at the range rammed down a greyish mass beneath bubbling suds twice with her potstick and wiped her brow.

Maggy Dedalus should correspond to 20yo Margaret Joyce, trying to take over May's mother-role

— They wouldn't give anything on them, she said.

"They" may imply Mrs M'Guinness herself wasn't there

Father Conmee walked through Clongowes fields, his thinsocked ankles tickled by stubble.

3:25pm, from 1FC184 above (2 miles east, but it's just a memory, there)
"fields" here, "field" there

Hart sees a farfetched link M'Guinness-to-Conmee but it's Conmee thinking of Clongowes now, not her

Mulligan and Haines are entering the DBC (contrast their menu)

— Where did you try? Boody asked.

— M'Guinness's.

her pawnshop is across from Conmee's church; K&B may have been in school across the street

Boody stamped her foot and threw her satchel on the table.

— Bad cess to her big face! she cried.

Boody blames Mrs McG even though she probably wasn't there

Katey went to the range and peered with squinting eyes.

— What's in the pot? she asked.

— Shirts, Maggy said.

(is this the 'false leads' motif again?)
Lenehan has already said "Boiled shirt affair" in his future section

Boody cried angrily:

— Crickey, is there nothing for us to eat?

Katey, lifting the kettlelid in a pad of her stained skirt, asked:

a tragic image of poverty and compromised manners

— And what's in this?

A heavy fume gushed in answer.

this could almost describe something fancy

— Peasoup, Maggy said.

peas = poverty, for Joyce generally

— Where did you get it? Katey asked.

— Sister Mary Patrick, Maggy said.

maybe in the convent next door to Conmee's church, after failing to get cash
(she probably got dry peas, not prepared soup to reheat)

(were K&B at a convent school there too? if they were coming from there, they wouldn't come via Eccles, would they?)

The lacquey rang his bell.

— Barang!

an intrusion (4KB24) from 1.5 mile south, with Dilly and Simon at the auctionhouse. another intrusion there puts the cavalcade just leaving the Park.

Boody sat down at the table and said hungrily:

— Give us it here.

she hasn't learned much from her brothers or father?

Maggy poured yellow thick soup from the kettle into a bowl. Katey, sitting opposite Boody, said quietly, as her fingertip lifted to her mouth random crumbs:

crumbs of bread, see below

cf p239: "Buck Mulligan slit a steaming scone in two and plastered butter over its smoking pith. He bit off a soft piece hungrily."

— A good job we have that much. Where's Dilly?

short for Delia
probably 18yo Eileen Joyce

— Gone to meet father, Maggy said.

see section 11DD, but she's been there since the start of episode 8
"meet" so it's arranged, she won't have to track him down, probably to try to drag him home?

Boody, breaking big chunks of bread into the yellow soup, added:

— Our father who art not in heaven.

Simon will sort-of-echo this: "The man upstairs is dead" and Patrick Dignam will think "Pa is dead. My father is dead."

Maggy, pouring yellow soup in Katey's bowl, exclaimed:

"yellow thick soup... yellow soup... yellow soup"
(sounds desperate)


mysteries: where did they go to school?
