Identity Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #4

"That's the only thing that bothers us. It's the only thing that's made us unhappy." (50)

It seems unlikely that the man is that naïve. But maybe he is young and inexperienced and truly thinks that this is their only problem.

Quote #5

"I'll scream," the girl said. (101)

It seems like Jig's identity is shattering. She’s coming to the realization that her outlook on life will have to change. She needs to be alone with her thoughts, at least for a moment, or she’ll crack, right there at the train station.
