Water shot out of the toilet, making an arc straight over my head, and the next thing I knew, I was sprawled on the bathroom tiles with Clarisse screaming behind me. pg 96 chp 6 the conflict illustrated is character vs. character and the Significance for this quote is Percy fighting Clarisse.
"The bull-man screamed and flung me through the air. I landed flat on my back in the grass. My head smacked against a rock. When I sat up, my vision was blurry, but I had a horn in my hands, a ragged bone weapon the size of a knife. The monster charged. Without thinking, I rolled to one side and came up Kneeling. As the monster barreled past, I drove the broken horn straight into his side, right up under his furry rib cage". pg:55 chap 4

"Right after we visited," Annabeth continued,"the weather got weird as if the gods had started fighting. A couple of times since,I've overheard satyrs talking.

But, I mean, aside from that, I thought we could work together. I thought you might know something." pg 105 chp 8

Before he could pull me back, I caught the salty scent of the interior, like the wind on the shore at Montauk. The interior walls glowed like abalone. There were six empty bunk beds with silk sheets turned down. But there was no sign anyone had ever slept there. The place felt so sad and lonely, I was glad when Chiron put his hand on my shoulder and said, "Come along Percy." page: 86 chp 6
