Nick leaves dinner and is disgusted that people as rich as Tom, Daisy, and Miss Baker were gossiping he even says “my own instinct was to telephone immediately for the police.” (16) when he heard about Tom’s women in New york. But Tom’s and Daisy’s interest in a rumor about him made him think of them as less rich he even says “Their interest rather touched me and made them less remotely rich-nevertheless, I was confused and a little disgusted as I drove away.” (20). When Nick gets home he sees Mr. Gatsby out on a dock reaching out towards a green light across the bay. In the morning Tom then takes Nick to New York where they get off the train and tom tells Nick “I want you to met my girl.” (24), they go to George Wilson’s repair garage; Nick meets Tom’s women in New York, Myrtle Wilson.
