Oh, to be rich and miserable

Storyboard Text

  • "I'm p-paralyzed with happiness" (13).
  • Dinner is ready
  • *uninterested*
  • "'Civilization's going to pieces'"(17).
  • *inconsequential banter*
  • He's kinda pathetic
  • *whispers*
  • Nick, you remind me of a rose
  • "I am not even faintly like a rose" (19).
  • Tom (left) brings Nick (right) into a sitting room in the Buchanan's fancy resort house where the two fair maidens (Daisy left and Jordan right) are pleasurably idling away their rich schedules.
  • Please excuse me 
  • You'd think his woman in New York would have the decency to call after dinner. 
  • His woman in New York... oh...
  • This scene illustrates how warped and self-important the perception was through the eyes of aristocrats of the Roarin' 20s era.
  • This level of passive-aggression is dangerous. Should I ring the police?
  • Tom gets a call from his scandalous buddy in New York much to Daisy's disappointment and heartbreak. Daisy converses an unrelated incomprehensible complement towards Nick which bamboozles him slightly.
  • I may be cynical, but at least I'm hecking sophisticated
  • I am uneasy.
  • Here, Nick finally finds out that Tom is having an affair via Jordan's blunt accusation. Daisy is reasonably distraught.
  • Jordan leaves with Tom to the house and Daisy takes Nick on a little tour around their verandas because the couple cannot stand to be near each other.
  • At another veranda, Daisy chats with Nick about her daughter and then goes on to confess her contempt for everyone and everything with blunt words. Nick is convinced they exist on different planes of reality.
