Transcript of Allie
"I know he's dead! Don't you think I know that? I can still like him, though, cant I? Just because somebody's dead, you don't just stop liking them, for God's sake- especially if they were about a thousand times nice than the people you know that're alive and all." (Pg. 171) Throughout this passage, Phoebe is telling him that just even though was a nice boy, he cant be the only thing Holden likes because hes gone, and she thinks that he needs to move on over the grief of his death. She is the one person that helps Holden grow up and realize that someone has to fall before they can mature. These two quotes explains just how much Holden loved Allie and couldn't control his emotions when he died. It showed how he reacted the night of his death all because he thought Allie was the most amazing kid. "My hunting hat gave me quite a lot of protection, in a way, but I still got soaked." (Pgs 212-213) I believe that this is a quote explaining how for a long time his hat kept him away from growing up and protected him from the real world, but he eventually see that his hat may protect him but in the end its not going to keep him completely dry. (like how not growing up isn't going to make him have a good future) "Then I took my hunting hat and handed it to her. She likes those kind of crazy hats. She didn't want to take it, but I made her." (pg 180) When Holden hands Phoebe the hat, its a way of showing him stepping into green and breaking away from Allie. Phoebe is his way of remembering Allie, but she also helps him grow up and get over Allie as well. "The thing with kids is, if they want to grab for the gold ring you have to let them do it, and not say anything. If they fall, they fall off but it's bad if you say anything to them."(pg. 211) He realizes that all his life, being told to do better is what made him do worse because he was always nagged on to do more and try harder. Phoebe made him realize that he had been failing all his life because people wouldn't leave him alone, and he doesn't want that to happen. So being the catcher, isn't really exactly what he wants to do anymore. I think in this quote, Holden realizes that he doesn't need objects to hold on to Allie with, he only need Phoebe. With Phoebe he can relive the life with Phoebe that he wanted to with Allie. So giving Phoebe the red hat, is his significance of Allie
