This quote is a catalyst because it represents Abigail’s desire for John and foreshadows the length she will go to replace Elizabeth.
The tone is the element that brings the entire plot together, driving home the theme of the story by forcing the reader to digest the aspects of the story it amplifies. The voice of the story is overwhelmingly sympathetic in favor of Blanche, causing the audience to have pity on her even in times when they theoretically should not. When Blanche arrives at her sister’s residence, she comes across pretty distraught and nervous, seeming wracked by some horror or another, even saying outright that she couldn’t be alone because she wasn't very well while "her voice drops and her look is frightened” (Williams 17). Right off the bat, the audience is bound to feel sorry for her and even worried for her well-being, a sense of distress and even embarrassment sweeping over the audience just by the state that she entered the stage with and the overwhelming anxiety and pain that seems to swarm

Indeed, her marital fidelity, until her affair with Gatsby, and her distress over Tom’s involvement with Myrtle might suggest to some readers that Daisy desires emotional intimacy with her husband. Jordan’s description of Daisy after her honeymoon reinforces this interpretation: “I’d never seen a girl so mad about her husband.
