Storyboard Text

  • Daisy Vs. Self
  • However will I choose? Gatsby can embrace my with devotion, but Tom can embrace me with wealth!
  • Daisy! Sure, I cheated on you, but I'm old money!
  • Daisy, I would do anything for you. Please!
  • Gatsby Vs. Society
  • I love Daisy and have spent these past five years focussed solely on doing anything to be good enough for her. I WILL win her.
  • Wilson Vs. Nature
  • I know I am the epitome of a nobody, but I cannot believe Myrtle would cheat on me with someone better! Maybe if I kidnap her, she'll love me again!
  • Ugh, I hate George. What a loser! I miss Tom.
  • As the novel reaches it's climax, Daisy must make a life-altering decision. Gatsby wants her to admit to never loving Tom, but she knows she cannot say this because it wouldn't be true. Tom tries to remind Daisy of all their fond memories while Gatsby pleads with her to choose him. Daisy is being pulled in two different directions, and she knows that at least one party will be disappointed in the outcome.
  • As Jay Gatsby looks across the coast and sees the green light at the end of Daisy Buchanan's dock in the beginning of the novel, he knows that the only way to win Daisy is to become wealthy and of high status, even though this is impossible because society says that if you aren't born into a title, you cannot earn a respectable one. His hope and ambition blinds him from the reality of his unattainable goal.
  • Simple-minded George Wilson learns of the affair his wife, Myrtle, has been having, and it makes him physically sick. His only defining characteristic is his devotion to his wife, so when he learns Myrtle doesn't share this passion, he is lost. Also, the Valley of Ashes in which he lives is a constant reminder of how he is simply waste. He knows that the only way to cure his heartbreak is to kidnap Myrtle and escape the dreary environment in which he truly belongs amongst the ash.
