"The first thing I did when I got off at Penn Station, I went into this phone booth. I felt like giving someone a buzz. I left my bags right outside the booth so i could watch them, but as soon as i was inside, I couldn't think of anyone to call up." I chose this excerpt from page 59 because I believe it showed how Holden really had no one to call.
"We got to the Edmont Hotel, and i checked in. I'd put on my red hunting cap when I was in the cab, just for the hell of it, but i took it off before i checked in." I chose this section of the book on page 61 to show his draw to the red hunting hat and how it makes him feel safe.
"Even though it was Sunday and Phoebe wouldn't be there with her class or anything, and even though it was damp and lousy, I walked all the way over to the Museum of Natural History." This is a good section on page 119 because it shows that Holden has close ties with Phoebe and she is important in his life.
