Hopefully, if I keep throwing these lavish parties, Daisy will notice me.
Oh, Daisy. If you only knew that all I've ever wanted was you... I did all this just to get your attention.
Antihero: a central character in a story, movie, or drama who lacks conventional heroic attributes such as idealism, moral goodness, and altruism.
Jay Gatsby is an example of an antihero because he represents the hope of the American Dream, but becomes rich through dishonest means.
Daisy is leaving you ol' sport.
She's not going anywhere with a two-timing drug dealer like you Gatsby.
Nick, don't go... Relax, have a drink and some fun.
Gatsby pursues Daisy even though she is married. He lies and tells her that he made his millions through pharmacies. However, it is later revealed that his pharmacies are a cover up for illegal liquor stores during prohibition.
Nick is the opposite of Gatsby. He is earnest and doesn't believe in liars, or cheats. Although, he doesn't stop others from being dishonest, he will disassociate himself from these people.
