He remembers how he met a girl by the name of Jane Gallagher whom he met in Maine and had a few nice moments together including playing pool and holding hands while watching movies. He remembers how he kissed her whole face but she denied him her mouth and acknowledges that he was “very close to necking” her. (ibid 63) He gets a cab to take him to Ernie’s jazz club in Greenwich Village and asks the driver where the ducks of Central Park go over the winter as they are never around, a question, which irritates the driver very much. In the club, Holden meets one of his elder brother’s ex-girlfriend whereby he excuses himself and walks back to Edmont.
At Edmont, the elevator operator, Maurice promises to send Holden a prostitute for five dollars and sure enough, he sends one known as Sunny. When she pulls off her dress “he starts feeling peculiar” and lies to her that he had a surgery on his backbone thus, he is not fit enough for sex, but he still pays her. (ibid 19) When Maurice comes for his dues from him, he declines to pay, something that earns him a punch in the stomach. The following day, which is a Sunday, he wakes up at ten o’clock and calls his former girlfriend by the name of Sally Hayes who considers very attractive. At a sandwich bar where he is eating his breakfast, he discusses with two nuns about Romeo and Juliet. Jane Gallagher’s mother answers the phone when he tries to reach Jane and he just hangs up. He decides to look for his young sister, Phoebe but he is told that she might be in the Museum of Natural History but not at the central park by one her schoolmates.
