The phone call, when Nick realized what was going on.
Excuse me for one moment.
"Ah.You look so cool, you always look so cool."
“Why ——” she said hesitantly, “Tom’s got some woman in New York.” Miss Baker and I exchanged a short glance consciously devoid of meaning. I was about to speak when she sat up alertly and said “Sh!” in a warning voice. (Page 10) This quote is important because it is when Nick finds out who Tom Buchanan really is and that he has another woman in New York. This also shows how fake Jordan and Daisy are because they both know about Tom and his other lady.
"We haven't met for many years." said Daisy, her voice as matter-of-fact as it could ever be. "Five years next November." This shows the scene when Nick invited Daisy over for tea and asked her to come alone because Gatsby was coming to meet her. This is important because it is finally what Gatsby has been wanting all along. This also shows him getting to his dream and marrying daisy.
The Great Gatsby
"Who wants to go to town?" demanded Daisy insistently. Gatsby's eyes floated toward her. "Ah," she cried, "you look so cool." (Page 76) This quote is important to the story because it was when Tom really realized that Daisy and Gatsby had a thing, and that she was cheating on him. This is also important because it was the breaking point of the story when everyone got to let everything out and talk about what was going on.
Myrtle Wilson's body, wrapped in a blanket, and then in another blanket , as though she suffered from a chill in the hot night.. "It was a yellow car," he said. "big yellow car. New." This quote is extremely important to the novel because at this point things are already filled with enough tension and then Daisy runs over Myrtle because Myrtle thinks its Tom. This showed the downfall of everything in the novel and the moral corruption of the American Dream.
"If that was true he must have felt that he had lost the old warm world, paid a high price for living too long with a single dream." (Page 107) This quote is significant because it shows that Gatsby lived his whole life hoping and attempting to get Daisy back. This also shows that Gatsby in a way died for the person he loved.
"Now he's dead," I said after a moment . You were his closet friend, so I know you'll want to come to his funeral this afternoon." "I can't do it --- I can't get mixed up in it". I choose this quote because it is one example of how no one truly cared for Gatsby except Nick and Gatsby's father. This is important because it shows that after all Gatsby did for everyone that they can't even pay their respects and come see him.
