Holden sits alone on Thomsen Hill watching the Pencey football game. He has just gotten kicked out of Pencey and is going back home on Wednesday.
Holden stops by at Mr. Spencer's house to say goodbye to him before he leaves. They talk about Holden flunking out of Pencey and his future.
No, sir! I certainly don't.
Do you blame me for flunking you, boy?
Holden is interrupted when his unhygienic neighbor, Ackley comes into his dorm and he prevents Holden from reading by walking around the room and pestering him with annoying questions. Ackley further aggravates Holden by cutting his fingernails on the floor.
Cut your nails over the table for chrissake!
Before Stradlater's date with Jane, Holden goes to the bathroom with Stradlater and talks to him while he shaves. The two joke around, then Stradlater asks Holden to write an English composition for him and Holden says he will do it eventually.
After Stradlater's date, Stradlater barges into the room. He reads Holden’s composition and becomes annoyed. Holden starts asking Stradlater about the date and when Stradlater refuses to tell Holden any of the details, Holden attacks him, but Stradlater pins him to the floor.
You're a dirty sonouvab**** of a moron.
After, Holden barges into Ackley's room. Holden talks for a while with Ackley and then tries to fall asleep in the bed belonging to Ackley’s roommate, who is away for the weekend.
