Storyboard Text

  • This scene shows Gatsby's almost innate desire for wealth and success. He never really thought that he was poor, even in the times that he was. He thought he had a destiny, and at this point in time he just hadn't realised it yet. He never truly lived in reality.
  • His parents were shiftless and unsuccessful farms people--his immagination had never really accepted them as his parents at all
  • This scene is transitional, as it transforms Gatz into Gatsby. Dan Cody hired him to work on his yacht, on which he learned how to live excessively, how to dress, how to talk with authority, and how to create the image of wealth and superiority. It should also be noted that Cody was the first to say "old sport", a saying that Gatsby later adopted.
  • At any rate Cody asked him a few questions (one of them elicited the brand new name) and found that he was quick and extravagantly ambitious. A few days later he took him to Duluth and bought him a blue coat, six pair of white duck trousers, and a yachting cap.
  • However glorious might be his future as Jay Gatsby, he was at present a penniless young man without a past... So he made the most of his time.
  • This scene depicts Gatsby and Daisy's first meeting, and when Gatsby's "destiny" is realised. His ambition now had a goal, or prize. That was to become worthy of Daisy, or to have enough riches to be deemed an acceptable husband.
  • He became obsessed with winning Daisy over, even after she had married another, Tom Buchanan. He worked and worked until his wealth multiplied. He did everything for the memory of Daisy, buying a house just across the water, and becoming almost famous to draw her attention.
  • Gatsby bought that house so that Daisy would be just across the bay. He wants to know if you'll invite her over to your house some afternoon and let him come over.
  • Once Daisy and Gatsby meet again, they plan to run away together, or at least that's what Gatsby thought was innevitable. However, after a heated moment at the Buchanan household, they all go to New York. On the drive home, Daisy is hysterical, and while driving hits and kills Myrtle, Tom's mistress and Wilson's wife. She never stopped the car.
  • That goddamn coward! He didn't even stop his car!
  • The chauffeur — he was one of Wolfsheim’s proteges — heard the shots — afterward he could only say that he hadn’t thought anything much about them. I drove from the station directly to Gatsby’s house
  • After finding the body, Gatsby is accused of driving the car, and he was too in love with Daisy (or the thought of her) to say otherwise. Wilson ends up killing Gatsby in rage. Gatsby died in his dream, he would never know that Daisy wouldn't have left with him, and no idea that no one showed to his funeral. He died with the idea that him and Daisy would live together for the rest of their lives; and it's up to the reader to determine if that's a good or bad thing.
  • It was after we started with Gatsby toward the house that the gardener saw Wilson's body a little ways off in the grass, the holocaust was complete.
