Storyboard Text

  • "This is a terrible mistake, a terrible, terrible mistake." (45).
  • "You're just embarrassed, that's all, Daisy's embarrassed too" (45).
  • "They had forgotten me, but Daisy glanced up and held out her hand; Gatsby didn't know me now at all. I looked once more at them and they looked back at me, remotely, possessed with intense life." (50).
  • "If that was true he must have felt that he had lost the old warm world, paid a high price for living too long with a single dream." (85).
  • Characterization- Daisy has come over to Nicks house for tea with Gatsby. After nervously chatting with Daisy, we see a side of Gatsby that we haven't seen before. He loses his charm and gets embarrassed like a little boy, as Nick puts it.
  • "Take 'em downstairs and give 'em back to whoever they belong to. Tell 'em Daisy's change' her mine. Say 'Daisy's change' her mine!'." (39).
  • Imagery- Nick and Daisy end up going to Gatsby's house. After Gatsby and Daisy get to talking, they lose themselves in each other. When they're dancing together, you can tell they're soulmates. They completely forget Nick when they're caught up in the moment.
  • "She's got an indiscreet voice, it's full of-" (63).
  • "Her voice is full of money" (63).
  • Theme-There are several main themes to The Great Gatsby, but I think the most important one is that the "American dream" is just that, a dream. In real life the dream is unachievable  because you won't always find the perfect job, house, wife and life. This scene represents that because Gatsby is contemplating whether it was worth it to chase Daisy all these years.
  • Works Cited Storyboard That, Storyboard That, Fitzgerald, F.Scott. The Great Gatsby. Penguin Books, 1950.
  • One of the most important flashbacks in this book is where Daisy is crying and screaming at everyone before her wedding because Gatsby had just sent her a letter and she knew she didn't want to marry Tom.
  • One of the major motifs in The Great Gatsby is wealth. Tom and Daisy Buchanan, as well as Gatsby, are extremely wealthy. This is shown throughout the book with Gatsby's and Tom's mansions, parties and cars. In this scene, Nick and Gatsby agree that Daisy's voice even sounds like she's "full of money".
