He finds his friend Roderick sickly, and stays with him for a few days in order to cheer him up.
“Look here; I won’t talk another inch with ye, if you say any jokes about him!” Tess clearly honors her family as she has threatened not to talk to her friends again if they mock her father any longer. However I believe that Tess is in denial about her father’s position and has to make excuses as to why her father is behaving inappropriately . For example it says “The clubbists tittered, except the girl called Tess- in whom a slow heat seemed to rise at the sense that her father was making himself foolish in their eyes.” If Tess honestly believed that her father was in a high position in society she would not feel embarrassed that he was raving about it in public. She would be encouraging him and proud of him. Then in addition she says “He’s tired that’s all,” showing that Tess is in denial about her father’s position.

Although initially he was satisfied with a quick glance at all the appliances, over time his checking behaviour became more complex and time consuming. With the births of his children his fears worsened again, so that whenever he tried to sleep he had images of his young children being caught in a fire, or being stolen from their beds. And so he returned to check the stove and the window for a second, third or fourth time, until gradually he felt he had no control over his checking behaviour at all. When ever Michael leaves his house, and before he goes to bad at night, he is plagued with doubts that he has not switched of electrical appliances and locked the doors and windows.

Instead he looks as if he had just lost something. The fifth and final hint is when Tessie starts causing a seen and pleading with every saying it wasn’t fare.
