Quote #10

"But Holly! It's dreadful!" "I couldn't agree more; but I thought you wanted it" (8.6-8.7).

Although Holly doesn't like the idea of the birdcage, she buys it for the narrator because she thinks it will make him happy. She is capable of self-sacrifice when it comes to the people she really cares about.
