Lenina talks about going to the Reservation with Bernard. He gets embarrassed and wants to discuss it privately. After she runs off to meet Henry, he dislikes how she talks about her sexual life in public.
Bernard feels insecure about his height. He orders a pair of Deltas to hurry up with his plane and one of them gives him a "look." Power is measured in height, and because he is the same size as them, they do not show as much respect to him as they would for the typical Alpha.
Bernard boasts to Helmholtz about his upcoming trip with Lenina, but Helmholtz does not seem to care. When they get to Bernard's room, Helmholtz starts to talk about how he could use his power of writing for something else, but he does not know exactly what that "something else" is. Bernard tells him to be quiet because he is afraid that someone might be listening to their conversation at the door.
