As the three of them get back to the Buchanans', Tom sees that Daisy is home, and Nick was feeling sick and wanted to be alone at home. Tom calls for a taxi for Nick.
I ought to have dropped you in West Egg, Nick. I'll telephone for a taxi to take you home. While you're waiting, come in.
No, thanks. I'll wait outside.
As he walks toward the gate to wait for the taxi, Nick hears Gatsby call his name. Gatsby had been waiting in the bushes by the path.
Just standing here, old sport.
What are you doing?
Gatsby explains what happened. Daisy was nervous after they left New York and wanted to drive, but lost her nerve and hit Myrtle as they drove away.
Well, I tried to swing the wheel--
Did you see any trouble on the road? Was she killed?
Yes, but of course I'll say I was. Daisy stepped on it. I tried to make her stop but I couldn't. She'll be all right tomorrow.
Yes. Her name was Wilson, her husband owns the garage. How the devil did it happen?
Was Daisy driving?
Gatsby expresses his concern about what might happen to Daisy if Tom found out that Daisy had been the one driving. After all, Myrtle was Tom's mistress - he might see a connection.
I don't trust him, old sport.
I'm just going to wait here, and if he tries any brutality she's going to turn the light out and on again.
You wait here. I'll see if there's any sign of a commotion.
He won't touch her, he's not thinking about her.
Daisy and Tom were sitting opposite each other at the kitchen table - they weren't happy, but they weren't unhappy either.
Nick reports back to Gatsby, who decides to stay and watch over the house. Nick walks away and leaves Gatsby standing in the moonlight, watching over nothing.
Is it all quiet up there?
I want to wait here till Daisy goes to bed. Good night, old sport.
Yes, it's all quiet. You'd better come home and get some sleep.
