Tom takes Nick to go pick up Tom's other woman Myrtle who lives in the Valley of Ashes. Right now, Myrtle is "married" to a guy named George who is trying to get a sale from Tom, Tom teases George by saying "then maybe I'll find someone else. The three of them (Tom, Nick, and Myrtle) goto the town and Myrtle basically buys everything she can even to go as far as to buy a puppy at the last minute. Later, they go to Tom's apartment in the city to have a party which Nick wants to leave desperately, later Myrtle's sister comes over (Catherine) making the situation more uncomfortable, until he got drunk for the second time in his life and later saw an allusion of himself, looking like he was disappointed in himself but proud at the same time. The next morning he woke up at the Pennsylvania Train Station in a hangover.
The Valley of Ashes was literally a mountain of ashes.
Come on Nick, I want you to meet someone!
