His battle between reason and will shown throughout the film highlights Terry’s transformation from being a ‘bum’, lost in morality who blindly follows the orders of the unscrupulous mob, to a leader for himself and his fellow longshoremen. It is his newfound awareness of his conscience that pushes him to make the morally correct decision, that is, testifying against the mob. Contributing to turning Terry against the mob is his own external and internal self, Father Barry, Edie, Charley and Johnny Friendly. Kazan effectively reveals Terry wrestling with his conscience through a range of cinematic devices and through his powerful use of symbolism throughout On the Waterfront helps our understanding of Terry’s conscience eventually leading to him turning against the mob. Terry’s transformation throughout the film is stemmed from his moral awakening due to the betrayal he feels from Johnny Friendly and his “henchmen”.
Nick also shows that he is caring at Gatsby’s funeral when he tells Gatsby’s father that him and Gatsby “were close friends” (Fitzgerald 176). Considering not many people attended Gatsby’s funeral, Nick tries to advise Gatsby’s father that his son’s house was always filled with people and friends, although it is not the truth. He senses the father’s sensitivity and takes that into consideration when talking to his about his son. In conclusion, Gatsby shows good character when he was respectful in deciding not to judge people and when he was ashamed of himself after Gatsby’s party, trustworthiness when he told Gatsby to let Daisy go and when he admits he is honest, and caring as he helped Gatsby with Daisy and reassures Jay Gatsby’s father at his funeral. This shows that although Nick can be selfish sometimes, he is mainly a good man.

Neither of them loves the men that are proposing to them nor do they want to be with them. In “Our Mutual Friend” Lizzie is more blunt and rude telling Mr. Headstone that she doesn’t want to marry him.

The wife would recognize and deal with her husband’s self-doubt in regards to her friendship with Robert. Also, if the husband wasn’t using substances every night, he would realize that his underlying problems are not with Robert, but with himself.
