Scene 6

Scene 6

  • In the next scene, Charlie tells Susanna the story of the only time he drove the car—with no permission (don't try this at home, kids).
  • He felt entitled because he did well in school, but his dad had said no.
  • He apparently got pulled over, and his dad let him stew in jail for two days.
  • Susanna is shocked this is the first time she's heard this story—again, she seems pretty hung up on Charlie's refusal to tell her stuff.
  • He also tells the story of how when he was a kid, he had an imaginary protector named the Rain Man, who would sing to him when he was scared.
  • It's raining outside at that moment, so perhaps it's only natural to be thinking about that.
