"Oh man, I'm so late for work! I'll talk to you later Gatsby"
After a restless night, Nick visit's Gatsby where he admits to Daisy being the first girl whom he has ever instantly felt close with, so much intact he lied about his background so she'd believe he was worthy of her. She made a promise to wait for him to come back from war but has since been married to Tom.
"Remember Myrtle, you can't escape your sin."
Gatsby's gardner worried about the autumn leaves falling into the pool and clogging the drain, tells Gatsby how he plans on draining the water out to prevent that. Although, Gatsby wants him to wait just one day so he can go for a swim.
Late for work, the two say goodbye and Nick finally heads to his office. But too distracted to even work, he even declines meeting up with Jordan for a date. Now shifting the story to the Wilson's, it begins to focus on George's garage after the accident with Myrtle.
"Bye Nick, see you later"
Myrtle died, but before she passed Michaelis was able to confront her about her lover and told her she couldn't hide from her sin, not in the eyes of God. George even comes to believe that whoever was driving the car that killed Myrtle must've been intact her lover. He tracks down the owner of the car who hit his wife and forces Tom into talking about who that is (Gatsby).
George then goes to Gatsby's house and finds him floating in his pool until he cowardly shoots him in the back and then eventually even himself. As Nick is rushing back to West Egg, he comes to the conclusion that life to Gatsby without Daisy was full of emptiness and meaninglessness.
