Pg 80

So I went back to Catcher in the Rye and found the passage that I've never been able to forget and was strangely surprised. It's just, I don't even know why it stuck with me. And when you've been remembering something for four years, I think your brain starts to change it and it begins to evolve into something it never was. Here it is:

One other thing I just thought of. One time, in this movie, Jane did something that just about knocked me out. The newsreel was on or something, and all of a sudden I feel this hand on the back of my neck, and it was Jane's. It was a funny thing to do. I mean she was quite young and all, and most girls if you see them putting their hand on the back of somebody's neck, they're around twenty-five or thirty and usually they're doing it to their husband or their little kid - I do it to my kid sister Phoebe once in a while, for instance. But if a girl's quite young and all and she does it, it's so pretty it just about kills you.
