In The Sound and the Fury Quentin thinks of the three boys carrying fishing poles whom he meets at the bridge as "the first," "the second" and "the third" (117 etc.), but they can also be distinguished from each other by their actions (and the fact that one is called "Kenny" by another, 122). This is the "third" boy, who seems the most agreeable and least interesting of the three, although like his friends, he is upset when Quentin comes along later with the unnamed little girl and watches them swimming - because they are swimming naked.
