Montag and Clarisse meet each other while Montag is on his way home. Setting = scene description.
Are you happy?
Of course Im happy!

Am I really happy?
Once Montag came into his room he found Mildred who tried to commit suicide. She was using seashells, which can be considered airpods today. Also, another technology are pills. (Technology) "Her face was like a snow-covered island upon which rain might fall." (FL)
Once Mildred was stable Montag started thinking on his own thoughts for the first time. This is called metacognition (challenging vocabulary). He was still at his house.
One drop of rain. Clarisse. Another drop. Mildred. A third. The uncle. A fourth. The fire tonight. One, Clarisse. Two, Mildred. Three, Uncle. Four, fire....
"I don't know anything anymore." (significant character quote).
Mildred spent hundreds of hours in front of the parlor walls. (Technology) She had three of these parlor walls in her house for entertainment.
My show is about to start!
Once Montag left his house he finds Clarisse and went to talk to her. She was playing with a dandelion, in the city, saying that if it blew away you are in love. It didn't blow away for Montag.
