Transcript of Karp,P-The Catcher in the Rye-7

"I got up closer so I could hear what he was singing. He was singing that song, 'If a body catch a body coming through the rye.'" (115).
"Its full of phonies, and all you do is study so that you can learn enough to be smart enough to buy a goddamn Cadillac some day...and everybody sticks together in these dirty little goddam cliques. The guys that are on the basketball team stick together, the guys that play bridge stick together. Even the guys that belong to the goddam Book-of-the-Month Club stick together." (131).
"But the trouble was I couldn't concentrate. About all I could think about were those two nuns...and this one boy James Castle...instead of taking back what he said, he jumped out the window." (170).

The Catcher in the Rye
She was right, though. It is "If a body meet a body coming through the rye." I didn't know it then, though. "I thought it was 'If a body catch a body,'" I said. "Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all...What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff...That's all I'd do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be." (173).
"Mr. Antolini was very nice...He was about the best teacher I'd ever had...He was the one that finally picked up that boy that jumped out the window I told you about, James Castle." (174).
"This fall I think you're riding for-it's a special kind of fall, a horrible kind. The man falling isn't permitted to feel or hear himself hit bottom. He just keeps falling and falling. The whole arrangement's designed for men who, at some time or other in their lives, were looking for something their own environment couldn't supply them with. So they gave up looking." (187).
