One could never fully understand the other. If the roles were switched, it would be easier to understand each other, and people wouldn’t be able to visually see the others differences. Hazel says “you [have] been so tired lately... if there was just some way we could make a little hole in the bottom of the bag, and just take out a few of them lead balls...” and George says “Two years in prison and two thousand dollars fine for ball I took out...” This shows how oblivious Hazel, and ungifted person, is towards George and his handicaps. Citizens wearing the handicaps know how bad it is and the consequences for breaking the laws while the people who do not wear the handicaps have no idea what it is like. This creates a riff between the two different types of people.
She got to go to Amsterdam and meet Peter Van Houten because of Gus. When he turned out to be a monster Gus did something to make sure he knew that while Hazel just sat there and watched.

George and Hazel’s fourteen-year-old son has been arrested, but on page one it reads, “It was tragic, all right, but George and Hazel couldn’t think about it very hard.” In Guy and Mildred’s society, there is war getting ready to happen and people around the world dislike their country since they’re better off than others. But, just like George and Hazel, no one thinks about the war in Fahrenheit 451’s society. On page fifty-five of Fahrenheit 451, Captain Beatty says, “We must all be alike. Not everyone born free and equal as the constitution says, but everyone made equal.” This quote is similar to “Harrison Bergeron” because their society was made equal to each other just like in Fahrenheit’s society.

In the beginning of the film, Hazel and her mother are attending a doctor’s appointment where they are seen meeting with Dr. Maria. At this meeting they are discussing Hazel’s condition and reviewing her plan of care. Additionally, Hazel’s mother is expressing her concerns about her daughters behavior and she feels Hazel is “depressed.” Dr. Maria reviews various medical options to care for Hazel’s feelings of being depressed.
