Transcript of Gatsby uses manipulation on Nick and Daisy to get what he wa

Nick asks Jordan " 'Why didn't he ask you to arrange a meeting?' "He wants her to see his house," she explained. "And your house is right next door." "Oh!"… " 'I don't want to do anything out of the way!' [Gatsby] kept saying. "I want to see her right next door.' " (Fitzgerald 84).
Nick narrates "I tried to go then, but they wouldn't hear of it; perhaps my presence made them feel more satisfactorily alone." (Fitzgerald 99).
Nick says, "'I talked with Ms. Baker," I said after a moment. "I'm going to call up Daisy tomorrow and invite her over here to tea." "Oh that's all right" he said carelessly. "I don't want to put you in any trouble." "What day would suit you?" "What day would suit
?" he corrected me quickly. "I don't want to put you to any trouble, you see." "How about the day after tomorrow?" (Fitzgerald 87).
Nick narrates "He wanted nothing less of Daisy than that she should go to Tom and say: "I never loved you."" (Fitzgerald 116).
She is with Gatsby, Jordan, Nick and Tom in a hotel room when she says "' You're revolting,” said Daisy. She turned to me and her voice, dropping an octave lower, filled the room with thrilling scorn: "Do you know why we left Chicago? I'm surprised that they didn't treat you to the story of that little spree." … She looked at him blindly. "Why,-how could I love him-possibly?" "You never loved him." ... "I never loved him,' " (Fitzgerald 139).
Gatsby uses manipulation on Nick and Daisy to get what he wants throughout the story.
"The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words if you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words"-Philip K. Dick.
Gatsby tells Tom " 'Daisy's leaving you.' "Nonsense."
"I am though," she said with visible effort." (Fitzgerald 140).
"Your brain is what gets you in trouble,
not your heart. Your brain is full of
manipulating games that end up causing
madness. Your heart just loves"-Nerissa Irving.

"Man cannot stop time, but man can cut
time off. The cut-off of that five years disappears from Gatsby's social life and becomes a separated water in which the unknown young man keeps a part of the past for himself" (158).
