| Quote #28
Enter Pozzo and Lucky. Pozzo is blind. Lucky burdened as before.
This is a great example of the way Vladimir sees other people only for purposes of entertainment. He ignores the fact that Pozzo is blind and that both he and Lucky have fallen helplessly to the ground. Instead, he rejoices that he has something to do to pass the time until evening. In this way, Vladimir could be seen as the most isolated character in Waiting for Godot, since he can’t even recognize the humanity of another.

This is a lowly low for Vladimir; while his earlier focus on the self was indifferent, this one is malicious – he’s plotting to manipulate another for personal gain.
| Quote #30
Vladimir is able to rejoice in Pozzo and Lucky’s pain and helplessness because it lends importance to his own life.
