Storyboard Text

  • Nick Carraway has just moved into his new house in West Egg, Long Island. He has moved here from Minnesota after returning home from the war. He has come here to become a bondsman.
  • After settling into his new home, he ventures over to East Egg to visit his second cousin Daisy, and her rich husband, Tom Buchanan. Tom gives Nick a tour of the house, talking in an arrogant self centered manner. 
  • Tom brings Nick inside where he is introduced to Jordan Baker, Daisy's friend who is a professional golfer. Daisy is ecstatic to see Nick, they catch up for awhile discussing Daisy and Tom's daughter.
  • During their dinner party Tom gets a phone call and leaves the table. Daisy also dismisses herself, following him. While he's gone Jordan informs Nick about what they phone call is about. Jordan tells him about all the woman Tom has back in NYC, and Daisy knows about it.
  • Once Daisy and Tom return back to the table, They continue chatting. After awhile Jordan leaves to go rest and soon after Nick dismisses himself to go home too. Daisy asks Nick about the rumor about him; that he is engaged back home. He tells her it's untrue then heads out.
  • As Nick arrives home he sees Gatsby standing on his dock, he considers calling out to him. But rather than disturbing him he observes Gatsby gazing over the water at the green light across from him. He looks back at Gatsby again and he has vanished.
