Bernice Bobs Her Hair
by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Warren McIntyre Timeline and Summary
Warren, wandering through the dance partner-less, agrees to dance with Bernice for Marjorie's sake. Bored, Warren half-heartedly flirts with Bernice – and fails. Warren is offended by Bernice's apparently judgmental attitude towards Jim and Ethel. At the next dance, Warren can't believe his eyes – Bernice is suddenly besieged by tons of partners. Warren notices that Bernice is actually pretty. G. Reece Stoddard and Warren collide, and the latter is shocked to see G. Reece make a beeline for Bernice. Warren and Bernice become something of an item – he visits her every day and they talk constantly on the phone. Warren picks Bernice up for the bridge party, just after Marjorie confronts her about him. When Marjorie questions Bernice, Warren regards her questioningly. Driving to the barbershop, Warren is a little moody – he's clearly not sure what to make of Bernice anymore. As soon as the haircut is over, Warren's interest in Bernice dissipates. He returns to his previous devotion to Marjorie.
