Quote #10

"I can’t stand to think about him waiting in the room and knowing he’s going to get it. It’s too damned awful."

"Well," said George, "you better not think about it." (232-3)

It’s interesting that we end on this note – a note of passivity – instead of on Nick’s line of action (his declaration that he’s getting out of town). This way, the reader is left with a sense of futility, rather than hope.
