Gatsby vs. Tom
Daisy only ever loved me! She never loved you, even when she decided to marry you.
Of course Daisy loved me, I am richer, more successful, and way better than you will ever be, JAMES GATZ!
Nick Vs. Self
I am so tired of the old money lifestyle and morals. I am angry at how all of my 'friends' are acting right now and how they are handling the moment.
Myrtle Vs. Nature
George Wilson Garage
My wife has been killed by her cheater by a car crash! I will find him and kill him!
This scene is when Gatsby is making assumptions that Daisy only ever loved Gatsby and never loved Tom. This scene ties into the thematic topic of attachment to the past. Gatsby cannot accept that Daisy has not seen him in 5 years, and that she could ever love anyone else other than himself.
This scene is after everyone gets back from the city and Nick says "I'd had enough of all of them for one day" (Fitzgerald 142). This quote shows the thematic topic of disillusionment because Nick is very tired and disappointed of all of his old-money friends.
This scene is when Myrtle Wilson was killed by Daisy crashing into her with Gatsby's car. This scene is Myrtle Vs. Nature because you cannot control getting hit by a car. This scene shows the thematic topic of reckless disregard for others because Gatsby and Daisy did not stop when they killed Myrtle, they continued to drive on showing that they do not care that they just killed a person.
