Part 2: The Grass / Chapter 1

  • When we last left Quentin, he was wondering what he'd say to Margo Roth Spiegelman at school the next day.
  • The answer: nothing.
  • When his mom takes him to school, Margo isn't there.
  • Chuck Parson and his one eyebrow are at school, though. Well, make that no eyebrows—he shaved off the other one for balance.
  • Quentin tells his friends "I was with Margo Roth Spiegelman" (2.1.25). Good thing he specified, or they'd have thought he was with the school's other Margo.
  • Because he was up all night with Margo (Roth Spiegelman), Quentin sleeps through most of the school day.
  • That night, he notices Margo Roth Spiegelman's car (the Roth Spiegelman-mobile) isn't home either, and he wonders if Margo will return to his window that night.
