"Oh. . . well, about Life being a game and all. And how you should play it according to the rules. He was pretty nice about it.
What did Mr. Turner say to you boy?
"Yes, sir. I know it is. I know it."
Game, my ass. Some game. If you get on the side where all the hot-shots are, then it's a game, all right--I'll admit that. But if you get on the other side, where there aren't any hot-shots, then what's a game about it? Nothing. No game.
"Life is a game, boy. Life is a game that one plays according to the rules."
"He said he was going to write them Monday
Which I'm sure they will be pissed off about and even more mad that I didn't tell them about it myself, just another thing my parents can be disappointed about
"Has Dr. Thurmer written to your parents yet?"
"Well. . . they'll be pretty irritated about it
Mr. Spencer brings up the fact that Holden as been kicked out of Pency prep and is curious as to what Mr. Turner had said to him.
I act like I'm about thirteen. It's really ironical, because I'm six foot two and a half and I have gray hair. I really do. The one side of my head--the right side-is full of millions of gray hairs. I've had them ever since I was a kid
And how do you think they'll take the news?
I would but I have to get going to the gyms to get the equipment
Mr. Spencer is getting mad at Holden because he is not taking what the principle seriously.
Thank god I'm a good liar because I lost all that equipment before
Wouldn't you like a cup a hot chocolate before you go?
Mr. Spencer is concerned about the reaction Holden's parents might have about him getting kecked out of school because he had met them before and thought they were very nice people.
Mr. Spencer is irritated that Holden's parents don't know that he has been kicked out and is wondering about how they are going to react.
Holden wants to get out of Mr.Spencer's house as fast as he can so he is making up excuses about having to go get his equipment.
