http://www.bookrags.com/notes/451/QUO.htm#7Faber knows that to bring society back to feeling and thinking, the role of the fireman must be destroyed. Somehow he and Montag hope to bring the establishment down. They decide to plant books in the homes of the firemen and to make them seem traitors to society so that they will be disbanded. How exactly to execute this plan, they aren't certain, but they're in it together.

Mildred tries to play it off as a firemen's job to prove how silly books are, and Faber tries to calm Montag so that he doesn't give himself...
