This shows that to people money matters so much they would go to measures of spending massive amounts of money to gain what they desire most. Second, Myrtle's desire for money compelled her to cheat on George and go for Tom because he's rich. This shows that people with a crave for money would go so far as to be unfaithful to their spouse. Finally, Daisy "began to cry stormily" at Gatsby's "beautiful shirts," (Fitzgerald chapter 5 pg 92) because she heavily admires and is impressed with his fortune. People who get emotional and get overwhelmed by someone's wealth must extremely admire them.
