The Director leads the students to the garden, where several hundred naked children are playing. All the children are happily participating, except one little boy sitting in a bush is crying because he seemed to be uncomfortable with the erotic play.
A man interrupts the director as he explains the games that the children are playing, and the Director introduces him as Mustapha Mond, or "his fordship." At this time, 4,000 electrical clocks all struck 4, marking the shift change.
Mustapha Mond describes life before the World State to a group of children, emphasizing how the lack of control concerning sexual and emotional relationships caused instability, leading to disease and war. The Director glances at Mond nervously, worried that he will corrupt the children. Mond opens the speech by quoting the real Henry Ford, as shown in the illustration.
In the boys' locker room, Henry discusses Lenina as if she were disposable and something he could "have." The assistant pre-destinator listens attentively and encourages this behavior.
Bernard overheard Henry Foster discussing Lenina like a piece of meat. He is mad because he values her as a real person, not just something he can "have."
Fanny doesn't like that Lenina had been seeing Henry Foster for four months. Lenina later decides to be with Bernard Marx for his personality, much to Fanny's horror, because he is an outcast.
