"Maurice said five. He said fifteen till noon and only five for a threw"
"This is five. It costs ten."
Chief, you're gonna force me inna roughin' ya up a little bit. You owe us five bucks.
I don't owe you five bucks
All I'm taking is the five bucks you owe me. I'm no crook.
You're a dirty moron. You're a stupid chisling moron, and in about two years you'll be one of those scraggy guys that come up to you on the street and ask for a dime
Am i drowning????? Man I'm gonna shoot Maurice with an automatic, wipe my prints from the gun throw it down the elevator shaft. Should I throw myself out of the window?
Holden finishes his conversation with the prositute he hirednamed Sunny. He pays her a five and she asks for a ten. Pimp comes full of hostility, and Holden gets his money taken.
Sunny's pimp, Maurice, comes into Holden's room with Sunny demanding five dollars. Holden refuses to pay them, so Sunny takes five dollars out of his wallet. Holden was way over his head and insults Maurice which, results in him getting beat up.
The two leave, Holden on the ground. He stays on the floor for awhile, thinking he was dying, as if he was drowning or something. He pretends as if he had just been shot. Then he imagines himself half dead going down and firing at Maurice. The lesson here is that Holden's attempt to be more mature backfired and ended up costing him ten dollars. His immaturity caused a conflict.
