In this situation, Reverend Hale voices his concern by saying that it is a natural for her to lie in order to save her husband’s name (Miller 114).

She isn’t falling in love with either of them. She is in love with a collaboration, a pure fantasy. If she had married Christian, how could she live with him, knowing that he could never be the one that she had loved before? While Cyrano has many faults, it must be said that he did have his honorable moments.
Mildred’s fake friends drag her into believing the wrong things revolving around physicality, hence she just does not know anything about truth. Her friends only vote on politics based on looks and manners (93), so Mildred thinks the book Montag reads to her “doesn’t mean anything! The Captain was right!” (65).
