Catcher in the Rye Chapter 18

  1. 1. The Catcher in the Rye
  2. 2. Chapter 18 <ul><li>After Sally leaves, Holden realizes he is hungry and goes into a drugstore to buy a Swiss cheese sandwich and a malted milk. </li></ul><ul><li>While in the drugstore, he decides to give Jane Gallagher another call. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Anyway, I gave old Jane a buzz again, but her phone didn't answer, so I had to hang up. </li></ul><ul><li>Then I had to look through my address book to see who the hell might be available for the evening. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>The trouble was, though, my address book only has about three people in it. </li></ul><ul><li>Jane, and this man, Mr. Antolini, that was my teacher at Elkton Hills, and my father's office number. </li></ul><ul><li>I keep forgetting to put people's names in. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Carl Luce <ul><li>So what I did finally, I gave old Carl Luce a buzz. </li></ul><ul><li>He graduated from the Whooton School after I left. </li></ul><ul><li>He was about three years older than I was, and I didn't like him too much, but he was one of these very intellectual guys and I thought he might want to have dinner with me somewhere and have a slightly intellectual conversation. </li></ul><ul><li>He was very enlightening sometimes. So I gave him a buzz. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>He went to Columbia now, but he lived on 65th Street and all, and I knew he'd be home. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>When I got him on the phone, he said he couldn't make it for dinner but that he'd meet me for a drink at ten o'clock at the Wicker Bar, on 54th. </li></ul><ul><li>I think he was pretty surprised to hear from me. </li></ul><ul><li>I once called him a fat-assed phony. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>He arranges to meet Carl for a drink at ten o’clock. </li></ul><ul><li>Holden then decides to see a movie to pass the time.    </li></ul>
  9. 9. The Rockettes <ul><li>I came in when the goddam stage show was on. </li></ul><ul><li>The Rockettes were kicking their heads off, the way they do when they're all in line with their arms around each other's waist. </li></ul>
  10. 10. The Rockettes
  11. 11. <ul><li>After the Christmas thing was over, the goddam picture started. </li></ul><ul><li>It was so putrid I couldn't take my eyes off it. </li></ul><ul><li>It was about this English guy, Alec something, that was in the war and loses his memory in the hospital and all. </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>After the movie was over, I started walking down to the Wicker Bar, where I was supposed to meet old Carl Luce, and while I walked I sort of thought about war and all. </li></ul><ul><li>Those war movies always do that to me. I don't think I could stand it if I had to go to war. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>My brother D.B. was in the Army for four goddam years. He was in the war, too--he landed on D-Day and all--but I really think he hated the Army worse than the war. </li></ul><ul><li>All he had to do was drive some cowboy general around all day in a command car. </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>What gets me about D.B., though, he hated the war so much, and yet he got me to read this book A Farewell to Arms last summer. </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>He said it was so terrific. That's what I can't understand. </li></ul><ul><li>It had this guy in it named Lieutenant Henry that was supposed to be a nice guy and all. </li></ul><ul><li>I don't see how D.B. could hate the Army and war and all so much and still like a phony like that. </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>I mean, for instance, I don't see how he could like a phony book like that and still like that one by Ring Lardner, or that other one he's so crazy about, The Great Gatsby. </li></ul><ul><li>D.B. got sore when I said that, and said I was too young and all to appreciate it, but I don't think so. </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>I told him I liked Ring Lardner and The Great Gatsby and all. I did, too. </li></ul><ul><li>I was crazy about The Great Gatsby. </li></ul><ul><li>Old Gatsby. </li></ul><ul><li>Old sport. </li></ul><ul><li>That killed me. </li></ul>
  18. 18. <ul><li>Anyway, I'm sort of glad they've got the atomic bomb invented. </li></ul><ul><li>If there's ever another war, I'm going to sit right the hell on top of it. I'll volunteer for it, I swear to God I will. </li></ul>
