Yeah my name is Rudolf Schmidt. Your son is a very great guy and a model student at Pencey couldn't think of a better guy then him, but Yeah i'm off early you see i'm having this operation i have a small tumor in my head. (Chapter 8)
One of the main themes in The Catcher In The Rye is about phoniness and deceit This is presented countless times in the story and is even shown through the main character Holden Caulfield, who hates people that are phony in general, but as presented in the story he is the one who actually lies and deceives people the most and will call out other people for doing the same things he does.
This scene shows this theme because Holden lies to the mom on the train about many thing mainly being about his name, her son, and lies about his real reason why he's going home early and decives her to think that he's having an operation on a tumor in his head.
