Isolation Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

"My husband and I will positively sue anyone who attempts to connect our names with that ro-ro-rovolting and de-de-degenerate girl" (15.8).

This is Mag's reaction to hearing from the narrator after Holly's arrest. We can't really blame her for not wanting to help Holly since the woman did steal her fiancée, but this does show us the consequences of Holly's behavior. Part of her isolation stems from a lack of care with other people's feelings, and this results in anger and bitterness from those affected.
