Storyboard Text

  • First Time We Met
  • Daisy, Daisy, Daisy
  • Daisy, Daisy, Daisy!!!!!!
  • Don't say her name!
  • Crying Over Clothes
  • I've made a mistake. He can't even buy his own suit!
  • This scene is important and represents Myrtle by showing how materialistic she is. When she first met Tom all she saw was "dress suit and patent leather shoes" this is showing how she didn't really see Tom she saw his clothes or things (Fitzgerald 36).
  • This scene is important because it shows how bad Myrtle wants to be in the upper class with Tom. When she asks Tom to marry him, Tom always ignores the subject but she brings Daisy back up. This is how they got in to the argument screaming, "Daisy! Daisy! Daisy!" Tom thinks low class Mrytle had no right to say East Egg Daisy's name so he hits her in the nose (Fitzgerald 37).
  • This scene is important because it ties the theme materialism to Myrtle. She doesn't care about her husband George, she cares about what things he can give her. Mrtyle only cares about her materialistic needs "I knew right away I made a mistake. He borrowed somebody's best suit to get married in" Myrtle wants a man that can buy his own suit (Fitzgerald 35). This is showing how bad Mrytle wants to be in the high class of society.
