Back at Tom and Daisy Buchanan's mansion in East Egg, Tom is doing his best to comfort Daisy after the car accident.
Daisy, I want you to know that even with everything that has happened today, I still love you. Deep down I know you feel that way about me, yes?
Unfortunately, Daisy is overcome with grief.
Huh? Oh, uh, yes of course dear... It's just... I keep seeing the image of that poor woman's face as her life dramatically came to an end right in front of the car...
Yes, that was an awful sight.
Tom tries to reassure her that the accident was all Gatsby's fault and not her's. This is ironic because Daisy was the one who drove the car that hit Myrtle Wilson.
And Jay could hardly breath after the incident, he was so distraught. It is just so horrible Tom! I cannot bear it any longer!
Shh, Daisy it's going to be alright my dear. Gatsby committed a selfish act that you had nothing to do with.
Tom uses Daisy's grief as an excuse to decide that their family would skip town and go somewhere away from Gatsby and everything that he is involved in.
I think that it would be a nice idea if we left town for a while. Just you, me and Pammy. We can go anywhere, but we need a break from New York and everything that is surrounding this horrible atrocity
Tom wants Daisy as far away from Gatsby as possible because he sees him as a threat to their relationship. Daisy agrees, but she notices Gatsby standing on their lawn, watching them through the window. She excuses herself from the table.
Yes, of course... Excuse me for one moment.
It will be good for us, we won't have to worry about any interference from Gatsby. I know that we will all be much happier.
Daisy goes into the next room and peers through the window, looking out at Gatsby for one final time. Tom walks in, asking if she is alright, and Daisy quickly responds by lying to him.
Is everything alright Daisy?
Oh, yes. I was just looking at the stars before bed...
