Homer too, isn’t afraid of taking chances, in the movie we have Quentin, the nerd no one wants to sit next to, but Homer don’t care about that anymore, he is hard headed, and goes over to Quentin and sit with him. Homer then finds out that Quintin is cool, and that he knows almost everything about rockets. Quentin then became one of his best friends. Well sitting with the nerd at school isn’t a big a risk, as saving people’s life. That just means that Homer and his dad are the same, on a different way.
However, the opinions of those characters about Ivan’s death have no affect on whether or not his death is good. Ivan’s children were pessimistic and worried for him with the opinion that he was suffering immensely, as shown through his son’s crying in the first chapter. But, this is insignificant since this behavior is part of the fourth stage of grief, which is depression and is banal among those who lost someone. Additionally, Ivan’s wife, Praskovya Fedorovna, had an ambivalent opinion towards her husband’s suffering. She states, “She began to wish he would die; yet she did not want him to die because then his salary would cease.” (4.2) She doesn’t care very much for her husband and Ivan only married her in the first place because it was a social more and would be proper.
I believe she is still far behind in the development of wanting someone who is at utmost mature person. Throughout the story, when Algy and Cecily first meet, she does not take into account as to why Uncle Jack had never invited over his “brother” Ernest. Well, Algy, trying only to see Cecily, pretends to be “brother Ernest” and tries to trick poor Cecily into thinking that “brother John’s coldness to him is peculiarly painful” (Wilde 48). This, however, lures Cecily into pitying Algy. Now this is where she finds herself a “kept-man”, which is Algy.

As previously mentioned, in the end Randolph succeeds in controlling Joel, but the way he does so confines Joel to Randolph himself, and likewise to the Landing.

I really did not like Matt approach towards his mom. How someone be embarrassed by her mom, who gave him birth, raised him and try to survive by doing her best. It really broke my heart that Matt is not giving too much respect to his mom. According to the movie, Tammy stated that she is invisible for the neighbors and they think that I do not do much for them. I also did not like the fact that Matt does work to support the family.
The second most important character is the murder victim himself, Patrick Maloney. Mary seems to have a quite inaccurate perception of her husband. She perhaps loves the idea of him and having a normal life more than she actually has affection for him. Patrick, while he is alive which is mostly in the beginning of the story, is withdrawn and mellow, due to the stress caused by having to tell Mary the bad news. This news was most likely asking to divorce her, but the exact reason is never stated up front.
Elisa’s emptiness affected her marriage with her husband, Henry, who both did not communicate with another on what they both desire. According Gregory J. Palmerino, he describes “The third movement of the story clearly illustrates the couple 's problem with conflict and their overall inability to engage each other without evasion” (Palmerino). Palmerino interpretation of Elisa and her husband, Henry, is that they are incapable of communicating with each because they both chose to be avoiding one another. According to Palmerino, “Henry 's response to his wife 's indirect efforts to arouse a more authentic reaction from him fails miserably when he says, ‘You look so nice!’ (11)” (Palmerino). Henry tries to compliment his wife, Elisa, but fails
After the D.B.’s departure, he started to trust people less and to be opened to them. Holden got depressed and mentally unstable, because of Allie’s death. And Phoebe was the one who filled his life with sense, and who supported him. She was like his “catcher in the rye”: convinced him to refuse the thoughtless action of leaving the town, that could ruin his future life. I believe that each person got influenced by his family or by people around him in some way, and it can be not only a positive impact on him but also a negative
Ed never wanted his son to take blame for Judy leaving. For instance, Judy explains, “ ‘I was not a very good mother, Christopher. Maybe if things had been different, maybe if you'd been different, I might have been better at it.’ (156)” This example shows that Judy, in her letter, said she wasn’t a very good mother, but she mentioned that it was christopher's fault that she wasn’t a good mother. She said that if Christopher was different, she would’ve been a better mother. That is very cruel to say to Christopher.
