Likewise, while he feels so lost at the banquet, he gives an egregious option of drinking alcohol. He is ill-mannered, such as "his earlier drinks, plus the heat of the hall, making him talk and laugh too loudly"(page 9). The more Johnny is ashamed of John, the more he wants to ignore his father. Once again, John makes a mistaken decision when he left the banquet to light a cigarette. Then, he continues binge-drinking with another irresponsible father, whom he calls "a lifesaver".

At the beginning of the passage, the audience feels solemnity for the death of Gatsby, but as no one arrives, Fitzgerald creates tension and irritation through the dialogue of Nick and “owl-eyes”. The audience sees that Nick truly never had anyone close to him and his money was not enough to garner all the people that came to his expensive parties. Fitzgerald uses the theme to attack materialists because of how much their lives are dictated by money and how little they care for others. Another interesting aspect of this passage is the entrance and dialogue of “owl-eyes”. He barely even knew who Gatsby was, but he still appeared at the funeral.
Oliver didn’t take this job seriously. An obvious former narcissistic high school jock with too much time on his plate— a look anyone within a five mile radius can see. He’d come to work with a hangover, but the chief would fire him because he was formally working for the Los Angeles Police Department. Some may see Marion Forks as a downgrade, but this town had its charms. Oliver didn’t see it.
In the following quote, the prostitute comes to Holden’s hotel, Holden declines to have sex with her and instead wants to mingle: “Don’t you feel like talking for a while. I asked her, It was a childish thing to say, but I was feeling so damn peculiar” (106). Holden isolates himself from all the people he loves and cares about like his family and Jane because he persists afraid of rejection. However, at the same time, Holden desires to have affection so badly, with anyone, even just talking with someone will satisfy him. For his lack of affection blooms into immense loneliness.
Keep in mind that this is a tour guide for children and pre-teens, so some of the places he visits are not relevant. Holden spends his first couple of nights going from bar to bar, getting more and more depressed, which is incredibly important to his character, however, it wouldn’t be effective on a tour guide for kids. Holden also goes to many fictional places, such as the Edmont Hotel, or Mr. Antolini’s house. The latter is quite significant, since Mr. Antolini points out that Holden lacks direction in life, contributing to Holden’s discovery of himself. Once again, children would not be interested in going to some random teacher’s house, although Antolini probably wouldn’t
As long as he has owned his cafe, Rick has prohibited Sam from playing the song “As Time Goes By.” This is because the song would remind him of Ilsa and the love that they shared in Paris a long time ago. For the entire time this song has not been played, Rick’s heart has been closed off from Ilsa and the memory of Paris. When Ilsa is “unknowingly” in Rick’s cafe, she asks Sam to play the song. When he begins to play it, Rick’s heart painfully opens up, and he knows that Ilsa is there. Later, Rick and Sam are at the bar in the cafe.
He passed by a fancy restaurant that he knew (even without any sigh declaring it) that he was not allowed inside. Inside was a class of people he wasn’t comfortable with and vise versa. He then moves to the restaurant that is known to be for his kind, with cheap food, decor and even behaviour. It ends with his furious anger and will to destroy the fancy restaurant because nothing has changed, with the apartheid or
This divergent translated into him being unable to separate Japan's dual nature in reference to “morality”. He did not understood how at the “enkai” (welcome party for Fieler) colleagues were “insulting” each other, then the next day at work everyone were back to formality, bowing to each other. He himself could not separate what he had saw, changing his perspective his colleagues. For example, his “boss” was a married man with children, yet he commit infidelity with the karaoke hostess at they. Feiler was so “haunted” by his colleagues behavior, he seeked outside understanding from his “friends”.

Stage 7 is Circumscribing where people are talking less to avoid their conflict because of the fear of argument.
Two days later... Having endured an hour-long grilling from Fuller about Booker’s disappearance, Tom exited his superior’s office feeling more than a little dispirited. Astute enough to know something had happened at the fraternity, Fuller had badgered him relentlessly about the hazing case, but Tom had remained stubbornly tight-lipped and had revealed only the bare facts, much to his captain’s indignation. But there was a reason behind Tom’s reticence. Without Booker by his side, he had come to acknowledge his rape as his own private hell and not something he could readily share with his friends. It was the source of his social withdrawal during the day, and a nightmare he relived in vivid color when he closed his eyes at night.
