Death of a Salesman Act Two Quotes

How we cite the quotes:
(Act)

Biff Loman > Willy Loman

Quote 52

BIFF: There’ll be no pity for you, you hear it? No pity!

WILLY [To Linda]: You hear the spite!

BIFF: No, you’re going to hear the truth—what you are and what I am!

LINDA: Stop it!

WILLY: Spite! (Act 2)

Willy's accusation that Biff is spiting him stems from his knowledge that his son felt betrayed by his affair.
