Omelas is a utopian city of happiness and delight, whose inhabitants are smart and cultured. Everything about Omelas is pleasing, except for the secret of the city: the good fortune of Omelas requires that an unfortunate child be kept in filth, darkness and misery, and that all her citizens know of this on coming of age. "The place they go towards is a place even less imaginable to us than the city of happiness. I cannot describe it at all. It is possible it does not exist. But they seem to know where they are going, the ones who walk away from Omelas."

Quiet Please By Aimee Bender
The "Greasy Lake" characters, Digby, whose parents paid his tuition to Cornell; Jeff, who had a dangerous personality; and the "wanna-be bad" narrator relish their "Bad Boy" image. T. C. Boyle describes their "Bad Boy" behavior: “we wore torn-up leather jackets, slouched around with toothpicks in our mouths, sniffed glue and ether [...]." [13] The lake, much like the character's foolish desires, has turned into a lagoon of refuse with broken bottles lining its banks. T.C. Boyle’s reference to war is as vivid as the lake, “so stripped of vegetation it looked as if the Air Force had strafed it.” [14] The mention of General Westmoreland’s tactical errors in Khe Sahn equates to the main character's disastrous misguided offense of losing his car keys. A moral dilemma occurs but is not directly exposed, since the characters desire a “Bad Boy” image, T.C. Boyle writes: "There was a time when courtesy and winning ways went out of style, when it was good to be bad [...]." [15] However, an epiphany is reached when the "Bad Boys" realize that what they desire is not always a good thing.

Al Jolson is buried in the cemetery where the dying girl will be buried; his blackface mask may symbolize the "show" that everyone, including the doctors, is putting on. Underneath the banter, underneath the surgical masks, is grief laden with fear. The narrator, who has a history of fearfulness (of flying, of earthquakes) fears her friend’s death, but also fears that she will die by exposure to it. The dying friend, who has always been fearless, is afraid to die alone.
