Phoebe undercuts the intensity of the moment. When Holden faces something that he dislikes, he cannot confront it; instead, he chooses to leave for another random destination, whether New England or Colorado. His observation that Holden will end up having contempt for nearly everyone he meets has been made in different forms by others, yet only Mr. When Holden talks with Phoebe, he once again reveals his hypocrisy. Holden thinks this is very funny and starts to laugh, but when he laughs, he feels like he might throw up.
Antolini seems a more desperate move once he relates it to James Castle, as if that story was more than a momentary reminder of any person who can give Holden a place to stay that night. He gives Phoebe his hunting hat and tells her that he will give her a call soon. Ecstatic, she tells about how she is playing Benedict Arnold in her school play. She does not want to lose another brother. We were just the small part of life which is not necessary to them for survival.
Holden would be there to catch them. Phoebe is asleep in D. However, he tells Phoebe that he likes Allie, and he likes talking to Phoebe right now. In a way, I think if Holden could just figure out where the ducks go, he could then figure out himself.

When word got back to Stabile, he and several cohorts locked Castle in his room and did unspeakable things to him, trying to get James to take back his comment, but James refused. We can feel confident that Holden is coming out of mourning and coming into his own.

It discusses different strategies of enhancing our relationships and how we can manage them better. Antaloni was just the kind of guy who likes to pat peoples' heads while they sleep. When Phoebe rides the carrousel, Holden realizes that there are times when kids want to try to grab the gold ring, symbolically taking a chance in life, and he must allow her the freedom to do that, even though she may fall.
Despite being six years younger than her brother, Phoebe understands that growing up is a necessary process; she also understands that Holden's refusal to mature reveals less about … the outside world than it does about himself. He talks to the piano player and he calls Sally in the middle of the night. The funny thing about this is it took a two second conversation I should have had years ago with this person to come up with the answer. He, Holder, is looking for someone to understand him and does not get that understanding from Mr. They come to the carousel, and Holden convinces Phoebe to ride it.
