By stuttering the paralyzed, it shows that she is somewhat hesitant when it comes to connecting with people. Also, the pairing of paralyzed and happiness shows that Daisy tries to love people but holds back to an extent. One reason she is hesitant to love people is because she loves Tom, but he also has a mistress that she knows about. This can explain why she is hesitant to love people because she has been hurt before while loving
