Storyboard Text

  • The Green Light
  • Lost Lovers Reunite
  • An Affair Discovered
  • You're so cool...
  • "Involuntary I glanced seaward- and distinguished nothing exept a single green light, minute and far away, that might have been the end of a dock."   This quote is significant, because it introduces what the green light might symbolize to the charachter of Jay Gatsby. It is a symbol of hope for Daisy.
  • Waiting on Nothing
  • "I certainly am awfully glad to see you again." All Gatsby hopes for is to reunite and start again with Daisy. After this scene, Gatsby and Daisy start their affair. This proves to be chaotic as Gatsby doesn't just want to start over, rather he would like to pretend like no time has passed. This sets up many problems for the future.
  • The Death of an American Dream
  • "She had told him that she loved him, and Tom Buchanan saw. He was astounded. His mouth opened a little, and he looked at Gatsby, and then back at Daisy..." This quote is significant, because it shows the pivital moment in which Tom discovers the affair between Gatsby and Daisy. This scene is building up the climax of the novel.
  • Is The American Dream Real?
  • "So I walked away and left him standing there in the moonlight- watching over nothing." After Myrtles death, Gatsby waits for Daisy outside of her home. Nick says this after seeing Tom and Daisy reconcile. This quote shows the reader that Gatsby is waiting for nothing. He has lost any hold on Daisy in this moment. 
  • "It was after we started with Gatsby toward the house that the gardener saw Wilson's body a little way off in the grass, and the holocaust was complete" This is the pivotal scene in which the reader learns of Gatsby's death. This scene shows the failure of the American Dream. Gatsby died and never retrieved Daisy.
  • "Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us" I feel like this scene once again shows us what Gatsby wanted and how he was unable to obtain it. Is the American Dream attainable, or is it just a pure figment of imagination?
