For instance when he tells about the cancer to Simon, he first thinks Jimmy is joking, but as he goes on to tell him that what he is telling him is actually true then Simon, who was talking continuously to him up until that time is shook and almost frozen. Rest of the trip they travel in his car to the Powwow Tavern was in complete silence. Jimmy has always used his ability to find the humour in every situation, which sometimes leaves him in a situation where he ends up making a joke at a time where he should not have. For example when he told about his favourite tumour to his wife, " Doctor showed me my X-rays and my favourite tumour was just about the size of baseball",(Pg. 2) jokingly comparing it to a baseball even going to an extent to call him Babe Ruth, Roger Maris or Hank Aaron, and then mentioning how he would go to Cooperstown to exhibit his X-Ray pinned to his chest pointing out the tumours, while sitting in the Hall of fame lobby
Maybe he is going to profess his love in front of all the workers at the Centre, and then Lenina will be really happy, but also embarrassed because an “uncivilized” person likes her. Dialectical Journal #39 “…afraid that she might be suffering from one of the few remaining infectious diseases.” This shows that there are still flaws in the system. Diseases can spread. In our world diseases can change rapidly, perhaps a disease wipes out the entire population except for a select few people., and the government collapse, and they can start anew. This also suggests that because there are flaws in the system, the rumor about Bernard could be true.
During his research and experimentation on his willing wife, Aylmer begins to think that the facial blemish held deep roots into his wife’s spiritual core. This discovery, fatefully, leads Aylmer to think that the birthmark diminished Georgiana’s entire being as a whole, therefore rendering her a mortal being, who if not for the birthmark, could have been, seemingly immortal. He believes that by removing the birthmark, he will save her. Georgiana, in the end, proved to be mortal indeed, she dies from the poison her obsessed husband gave her. Perfectly flawed and perfectly dead in the pursuit of human
When Gene went he realized that Leper was Away With Out Leave and the war had caused him to go insane. Leper’s enlistment made the concept of the war easier for Gene to cope with. The friendship between Gene and Leper was probably the least significant relationship for Gene of all. Brinker was jealous over the quick bonding between Gene and Finny, so Brinker looked for a way to revenge Gene by having a trial and forcing Finny to see that Gene really did cause him to fall. Leper gained the respect of Gene and the others, when he enlisted with the ski troopers.
Charlie perfectly demonstrates the message of the play, that every person fins happiness in their own way. Throughout the story it’s pretty easy to hate Charlie he seems to be doing nothing but hurting himself and the ones around him. Towards the end of the play the audience comes to find out that Charlie has one hundred and twenty thousand dollars and could be getting the best medical help possible. But instead of saving himself, he’s been saving all of the money for his daughter Ellie. Now it can definitely be argued that this is not the correct things to do and that maybe Charlie could have lived longer with help from the doctors.
The husband is obviously not happy that the blind man makes his wife laugh more than he does while he is not even able to do so himself. At the end of the story, the woman acts very oddly when she wakes up and sees that the blind man and her husband are hand in hand and drawing the cathedral. When she says, “What are you doing? Tell me, I want to know”, “I want to know” (Carver 252) makes it seem as if she had authority over the two men and that she feels that something was going wrong that she wanted it to end. When a relationship begins, the two people usually watch each other carefully and always want to know what the other is doing, and to see if it will affect their new-born relationship.

He felt that he could have done something to save his life. But because he was distracted he couldn’t do anything.
According to utilitarianism, the most happiness would go to the person suffering from the disease and their family and friends, this is because even though the family and friends would be sad that the person had passed away they would also be happy because the person they love would not be suffering. The only unhappiness in the situation would come from the government who would claim that anyone who helped
Last we checked, riding in rodeos was no crime, but jumping little kids is pretty bad. I were also a tad shocked when Dally got out of the hospital by holding a knife to a nurse's throat. With all of this Dallas (Dally) Winston, was a hard nut but he loved Johnny and when he blamed Johnny’s death because of his actions he couldn’t take it and went on a all out suicide mission to die. Ponyboy isn’t sure why but Darry as we are told through Ponyboy thinks that Johnny was loved by all, but throughout the book Johnny looked up to Dally who when Johnny died couldn’t take
