For instance, Sedaris is comparing the inside of a plane to a hospital ward “Their slow-footed padding gives the cabin the feel of a hospital ward: the dark aisles, corridors; the flight attendants, nurses” (Paris 1).

When Gene goes to Leper’s house, Leper tells him, “…they were going to give me a discharge, a Section Eight discharge… is for the nuts in the service, the psychos, the Funny Farm candidates” (144). Leper is telling Gene that the army had labeled him as a crazy person and he would not be able to get a job because of it. Leper was not ready to go to war; he only wanted to ski.

Our officers oughta be shot for that. She was carryin’ supplies and war material.” A few paragraphs later the book ends, the protagonist knowing that his own “heroism” in battle, the blood-lust that fuelled the victory, was manipulated, based on a lie. It’s a final moment of
In the streets when Romeo and his friends were walking he couldn’t stand his pride being hurt at the party so he started a fight by making fun of Mercutio.

The opportunity to beat fate was too good to pass up. It did not help that his wife felt the same way as well. She facilitated the murder and assured her husband that it was what needed to be done. After Macbeth killed the king, he found himself no longer a true and loyal soldier, on the inside that is.

When Macduff finally kills Macbeth, he puts Macbeth’s head high into the air and exclaims, “Hail, king! for so thou art: behold, where stands/ The usurper’s cursed head: the time is free:/ I see thee compass’d with thy kindom’s pearl, / That speak my salutation in thei “Blood is thicker than water,” because Macbeth and Lady Macbeth could never successfully r minds; / Whose voices I desire aloud with mine: / Hail, King of Scotland!” (5.8.4).
