This shows that although there may not be any visible signs of an issue during the acts, but there could be adverse effects down the line that cannot be changed. There are multiple examples of the overabundance of adrenalin present throughout the course of the scene. For example he boldly states that he is in fact Abe Froman and continues this story even though he has no idea who Abe Froman is when he begins the lie.
TWO-LANE BLACKTOP Two-Lane Blacktop is a 1971 road movie with no beginning, no ending and no speed limit, is directed by Monte Hellman. Actors and actress are singer-songwriter James Taylor (the Driver), the Beach Boys drummer Dennis Wilson (the Mechanic), Warren Oates (GTO), and Laurie Bird (the Girl). “Blacktop” means an asphalt road.

The murderer and rapist had been unsure how he 'd play it before he 'd entered the Psychiatrist 's office, and how much he 'd reveal in his first session. Ms McMillan was the expert, and it would depend on how much she could draw out of him. However, now that he 'd arrived, he couldn 't resist teasing with his demeanour, and tone. Would she pick up on it, and the slight smirk that had passed across his features? Jarrod didn 't care; it was he paying the two hundred dollars an hour, or whatever it was, to reveal his soul, and he could do and say whatever he liked.
However, neither one thinks the other one is thinking anything similar to what theirself is thinking: “me sad because no one notices except me and Dad here maybe, and even us not telling each other” (133). Will starts to grasp that he and Charles may actually think about some of the same things and can use that to start a conversation between them and work on their relationship at the same time.

Many people would think of Gatsby as being a popular and sociable person, but I believe he was living a lonely life to where no one truly knew who he was.

Another human 's life should prioritized in front of personal wants and should not be an alternate choice to one 's desires. When human nature is thought of, a constant characteristic that appears in people 's minds is the ability of human 's to place themselves in front of others. This characteristic combined with a gruesome period in American history resulted in a horrific event that is still talked about today.
This is shown when X-Ray asks, “What’s the matter, you guys tired or something?” and “Stanley glanced uncertainly at Zigzag…” who also knew about the mystery object. I think it would be wise of Stanley to continue to act as normal as possible, otherwise, people will figure out that he is hiding
