    Summary

    Gatsby smiled. It was the same warm smile he always used to wear, though a little tired. “Care to let me in, old sport?”

    Nick stepped aside and let him. If this was a ghost—which it well might be—it was still not a ghost he wished to expel from the house. Rather, it was a ghost which had already been haunting him for the past two months.

    Summary

    He remembered Myrtle, his lady, his wife, whom he had loved with all his heart, before she was cruelly stolen away. His heart beat faster, and a sort of giddy, insane joy possessed him. A chance to get back at the world for all the wrong it had done to him, at the low, low price of his sanity.
    One might call it the winner’s curse.

    Summary

    They share another round of laughter after which Daisy takes the bottle from Jordan and drinks. When she’s done, she rests the lip of the bottle against her mouth.

    “You could have an affair,” Jordan suggests. “Poetic justice, I’d say.”

    And involve some poor sap in all this business?” Daisy asks, a small smile playing on her lips. “As much as I’d like to see that, I’d hate to be responsible for someone’s murder.”

     

    Daisy and Jordan drink in the wake of discovering about Tom's latest affair.

    Summary

    "What I'm trying to say is," Nick says, "I’m…eccentric.”
    “People have called me the same,” Gatsby says self effacingly. “You can’t listen to people’s criticisms, old sport. You just have to live your life the way you want to live it. Eccentric or no.”
    Nick growls and throws up his hands. His face is slowly turning red, and Gatsby feels sorry for having apparently frustrated him. “See! I have no idea if you know what that means or not!”

    Or, the one where Nick is trying to come out of the closet and Gatsby doesn't know any lingo whatsoever.

    Summary

    At ten to four, Gatsby was with Nick in the little cottage; flowers for Daisy spilling from ornate vases on every table and shelf, her favorite tea brewed and ready, both men standing restless with their hands thrust deep into their pockets, shoulders taut.
    'She won't come—'
    'Give her some time, Jay—'
    '—and I'm not sure I want her to.'
