After his description of Gatsby, he viewed, "closed out of my interest in the abortive sorrows and short-winded elations of men..." nothing good of society (Fitzgerald 2). As this shows the effects of disillusionment, it also shows the importance of how people judge Gatsby before knowing him.
The conversation between Daisy and Nick lead to, "All right... I'm glad it's a girl. And I hope she'll be a fool- that's the best thing a girl can be in this would, a beautiful little fool." Nick describing disillusionment about Daisy's daughter (Fitzgerald 17). This is important because it show how women in the 1920s were seen in this era.
Even though Daisy professes, "I think everything's terrible anyhow," she goes on to say she has been everywhere and has seen everything (Fitzgerald 17). This is important not only because it shows the effects of disillusionment but also explains how she has only truly seen the good parts of life.
