Fish are Phonies
He didn't like hanging out with other people
He wasn't in the mood
He had just returned from New York with the fencing team
He was leaving Pencey
He didn't want to be on the football team
He hated phonies so was rude to everyone
He refused to be a team player
He was flunking four subjects and not applying himself at all
Holden needs some direction in life.
Life is a game.
Aging is terrible.
To try harder to succeed in life.
Where the ducks in New York go during Winter.
How old Spencer is.
How phony people are.
How easy it is to lie to teachers.
I'm the most terrific liar you ever saw
I never let the truth get in the way of a good story
The truth is for fools
Telling lies kills me
Wash his nails
Write a composition for him
Let him go out with Jane
Stop horsing around
His brother Allie's left-handed fielder's mitt
His brother Allie's death
His room at Pencey
His brother Allie
Got angry and punched Stradlater.
Screwed it up and threw it in the bin.
He tore it up and threw the pieces in the bin.
Got depressed and refused to give it to Stradlater.
He had gone out with Jane.
Holden suspected that Stradlater had 'given the time' to Jane.
Holden was jealous about Stradlater spending time eith Jane.
Stradlater wouldn't tell Holden what he had done with Jane.
Ackley thought it impolite to let people sleep on someon else's bed.
He was worried that Ely would come home soon.
He thought it was weird that Holden would want to sleep there.
He didn't want Holden to get blood all over the bed.
A pair of hockey ice-skates.
A pair of racing ice-skates.
A new suitcase.
A red hunting hat.
If she was happy with her life.
If she would come spend some time with him in New York.
If she wanted to have a cocktail with him.
If she could lend him some money.
Shy and small.
She wouldn't let him kiss her mouth.
Wears a stripy jumper.
Wouldn't give her step-dad the cigarettes.
She puts her hand on the back of Holden's neck.
