Addie gives strong evidence to support her need for deeds and belief that words cannot encompass the importance of experience. Yet, some of the words she rejects, such as “motherhood” and “marriage,” demonstrate her own failure. In the end, her distrust of language leads her into a self-destructive lifestyle.

The Anglo just wants the police report to show his employers he was not at fault and they wouldn’t charge him for the damages, even though he feels pity for Perez, this is the best way to resolve the Fender-Bender. The Chicano cop, on the other hand, believes that the proper way to resolve the Fender-Bender is to punish Perez.
