“This is an unusual party for me. I haven’t even seen the host. I live over there ——” I waved my hand at the invisible hedge in the distance, “and this man Gatsby sent over his chauffeur with an invitation.” This quote is significant because that is when Nick first meets Gatsby, the only authentic person he will meet in the East. This also the start o everything that happens afterward. It shows how Gatsby is not actually known by many people despite having large parties.

“Daisy! Daisy! Daisy!” shouted Mrs. Wilson. “I’ll say it whenever I want to! Daisy! Dai ——” No matter what Tom does or whomever he cheats with he will always come back to Daisy. He just wants to have fun but Daisy will always be the priority for him. It foreshadows something bad happening to her, relating to Daisy.
"Daisy’s face was smeared with tears, and when I came in she jumped up and began wiping at it with her handkerchief before a mirror... He literally glowed; without a word or a gesture of exultation a new well-being radiated from him and filled the little room." This quote represents Gatsby finally achieving the green light. He has a hold on his american dream. Daisy crying also foreshadows that his American Dream will end before he could fully realize it.
“I told her she might fool me but she couldn’t fool God. I took her to the window.” This shows that bad things come to those who are corrupt. This means that God always knows about the corrupt. Humans may be easily fooled but God always keeps an eye on the corrupted.
"The chauffeur — he was one of Wolfsheim’s proteges — heard the shots — afterward he could only say that he hadn’t thought anything much about them." This quote signifies Gatsby's death. Along with him his American Dream. It shows that the American Dream is unachievable. It also shows the corruption of Wolsheim's men.
“Why, my God! they used to go there by the hundreds.” Hundreds of people used to constantly be at Gatsby's house yet not a single one of them cared enough to come to his funeral. This shows just how fake people and how manipulative and greedy they are. This truly shows how futile the American Dream is.
