Quote #10

She shouted again, "You’ll get out and we’ll get married!" I answered, "You think so?" but it was mainly just to say something. (2.2.7)

Whatever sense of closeness Meursault has developed for Marie was short lived; detachment is now all that is left.

Quote #11

I never thought specifically of Marie. But I thought so much about a woman, about women, about all the ones I had known, about all the circumstances in which I had enjoyed them, that my cell would be filled with their faces and crowded with my desires. (2.2.11)

Why would Meursault think about Marie? To him, she is just a generic woman.
