  • Elevator
  • "Till noon. Five bucks a throw, fifteen bucks till noon."
  • Ernie's Club
  • "He's a terrific snob and he won't talk to you unless you're a big shot or a celebrity or something, he can really play the piano."
  • Phoniness and deceit is when someone is not real of genuine, or is not truthful. 
  • During this scene Holden is trying to make his case that Maurice said $5 and not $10 for a throw with Sunny. 
  • Holden is in Ernie's club and he saw this phony piano player named Ernie who sometimes plays pretty good but in reality Ernie only plays for the applause not for his love for the music.
