    • George: "We could be like the Gatsbys! Didn't they always like, you know, a bunch of people around, and they were all best friends?"
      One additional reasons why this quote is incorrect is that there never were any [plural] Gatsbys. In F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1922 The Great Gatsby, the only character named Gatsby is Jay Gatsby, who has no apparent family or relatives throughout the story. The only relative he has, his father, appears after Gatsby's death. And, even though he was a family member, we learn during the story that Gatsby changed his name from James Gatz to Jay Gatsby. Thus, his father's name was Gatz.
