Its all fun and games until the woman’s boyfriend shows up, and John is left to repair the awkwardly tattered situation. Lets just say the boyfriend was slightly offended by Doug's sexual reactions to his girl. While John tries to hold Doug’s mouth, the puppet tries with all his might to get one last word out. When the couple leaves, the woman steals the lint roller for a memento. As she leaves the scene the puppet asks John, “ You think I have a shot with her?
Johnny would do anything to protect his friends. Johnny Cade’s only family is the greasers. His father beats him and his mother ignores him. He is not loved at home. The rest of the greasers care for Johnny and he is described by Ponyboy as the gangs “pet”.
Holden is so enraged by the profanity that he exclaims, “I kept wanting to kill whoever’d written it” (201). Because of his need to protect the innocence of children, he wipes it off. Another occurrence in which Salinger displays Holden’s value for innocence is when he is watching his sister Phoebe-who he deeply cherishes- on a carousel; the same one that he and his brothers used to take her on
Granddaddy finally had to order them out. Bambara exclusively uses indirect characterization to develop the characters Smilin’, Granny, and Granddaddy, in order to convey the theme. The antagonist, Smilin’, shows that he is arrogant, disrespectful and uncaring when he trespassed unto Granny’s land and took photos without her permission. Smile’s name has an ironic double meaning. He always smiles just like a salesperson who tries to sell an item smiles.
He uses the sword that he had taken from the elves and kills the spiders, despite his fear of being eaten by them. “It had thought of starting the feast while the others were away, but Mr. Baggins was in a hurry, and before the spider knew what was happening it felt his sting and rolled off the branch dead” (160). Bilbo not only wants to overcome his fears, but he can follow through on his thoughts. He had the sword to kill the spider, yet Bilbo was still nervous. Also, if Bilbo hadn't overcame his fear of being eaten by the spiders, he would have never killed them and freed the dwarves, and without the dwarves there wouldn't have been a story.
When this happens he will do anything to get women`s attention, which leads to him being an extremely disrespectful and impolite teenager who is also very immature. “I started giving the three witches at the next table the eye again”(Salinger 70”). In short, Holden tries to be nice to people of the opposite sex and wants to create friendships, but his immaturity makes him think of women as objects and his disrespect towards others will not help him get through his life. Holden`s communication idealism is first brought forth when he describes his life at Pencey Prep High School. He thinks it is full of phonies, morons and bastards.
She tries to flirt with men on the ranch but they all seem to have a rule of staying away from her because they think she is a “rat trap” or piece of “jail bate”, meaning she would get them into trouble if she got the chance. Her flirtatious actions towards Lennie at the end of the novel ,where she allows him to touch her hair, results in her death because Lennie wouldn’t let go of her hair and it resulted in him gripping her too tight and he broke her neck. Slim has lots of power over people on the ranch because of his reputation of being a good guy and all the men seem to confess in him almost as a priest-like figure. He is the jerkline skinner which mean that he is the leader of the ranchers and isn’t like Curley who abuses his legitimate power. He makes friends with George quite quickly and they talk about Lennie in a pitiful but admiring way (pitiful about his lack in intelligence but they admire him for his physical strength).
The gang is the only family he has. Terry is not confident, as his body language displays rounded shoulders and hands in pockets. When Joey is crucified he is upset and feels that the gang mislead him, “I thought they was just gunna rough him up a little but’ he said with his had over his heart, whilst showing signs of guilt. “He could sing but he couldn’t fly” a gang member said, they all laughed as if the tragedy meant nothing to them. When he meets Edie he is obviously attracted to her, the more time he spends with her you see his loving, protective side.

Jem’s bravery fulfills a large amount for him to move past his fears, and his actions do so. Another action of Jems takes place. “Jem refuses to leave Atticus and worries that he will get hurt” (194). Jem decides to defend his father and makes sure nothing bad will happen to him.
When the men in the work place make sexual advances towards Clare or degrade women and each other nothing seems out of the ordinary in fact it seems natural for such masculine based behaviors to be presented. However, when anyone, male or female, shows signs of any female oriented ideal or emotion they are immediately condoned for it and made to feel ashamed. For instance, when Mary begins to cry her boss cracks a joke about women not being able to hold their water. This statement devalues the emotion presented making it appear to be a sign of weakness that only women are capable of and ultimately feeds back into the patriarchy mentality of the dominance of the men over the submissive female. This sense of empowerment given to men in the work force again delivers them the benefit of feeling safe with their ‘authoritative’ actions and behaviors making them feel more at ease within GameaVision.
