Holden's Scrapbook - Page Text Content


1: "Anyway, I kept walking around the room, waiting for this prostitute to show up. I kept hoping she'd be good-looking. I didn't care too much, though. I sort of just wanted to get it over with." Page 93 | These girls are in my scrapbook because i had many chances to sleep with prostitutes but I could never do it. I kept telling myself i could sleep with them but i just couldn't do that to myself.

2: "Where i want to start telling is the day I left Pencey Prep. Pency Prep is the school that's in Agerstown, Pennsylvania." Page 2 I picked this picture because it was the school I was going to and I got kicked out. It was a pretty good school though.

3: I sat down on old D.B.'s desk and looked at the stuff on it. TI was mostly Phoebe's stuff, from school and all. Mostly books. The one on top was called Airthmetic Is Fun!! I sort of opened the first page and took a look at it, This is what old Phoebe had on it: PHOEBE WEATHERFIELD CAULFIELD 4B-1 That killed me. Her middle name is Josephine, for God's sake, not Weatherfield. | I picked this to go in my scrapbook because my sister Phoebe really liked her journal but i was really upset when she didnt have her real middle name in it. | Page 160

4: I put my hunting hat in my scrapbook because i love this hat. It helps me keep warm and i don't even care how i look. And whenever I'm just thinkin I put it on. | "But it was freezing cold, and i took my red hunting hat out of my pocket and put it on-I didn't give a damn how i looked. I even put the earlaps down." Page 88

5: "My brother Allie had this left-handed fielder's mitt. He was left-handed. the thing that was descriptive about it, though, was that he had poems written all over the fingers and the pocket and everywhere. In green ink. He wrote them on it so that he'd have something to read when he was in the field and nobody was up to bat. He's dead now. He got leukemia and died when we were up in Maine, On July 18, 1946." Page 38 I put my brother's glove in my scrapbook because i sure do love and miss my brother. And its one of the only things i even have left of his.

6: "Lets go ice-skating at Radio City!" Page 128 "So we went, and after they gave us our skates, they gave Sally this little blue butt-twitcher of a dress to wear. She really did look damn good in it, though. I have to admit it. And don't think she didn't know it. She kept walking ahead of me, so i\that I'd see how cute her little ass looked. It did look pretty cute, too. i have to admit it." Page 129 | I picked this skating picture to put in my scrapbook because me and sally had a real good time here and i like sally a lot. It was a fun time with her. She looked real cute.

7: "I live in New York, and I was thinking about the lagoon in Central Park, down near Central Park South. I was wondering if it would be frozen over when i got home, and if it was, where did the ducks went when the lagoon got all ice and frozen over. I wondered if some guy came in a truck and took them way to a zoo or something. Or if they just flew away." Page 13 | I picked this for my scrapbook because i always do wonder where they go. Maybe I'm just wondering where to go myself.

8: "The waiter came up, and I ordered a Coke for her-she didn't drink-and a Scotch and soda for myself, but the sonuvabitch wouldn't bring me one, so I had a Coke, too." Page 129 | I put beer and cigarettes in here because i really just like to drink and smoke. It makes me feel older and everybody else is doin it so i might as well do it too. | "At the end of the first act we went out with all the other jerks for a cigarette." Page 126

9: "Old Selma Thurmer-she was the headmaster's daughter-showed up at the games quite often, but she wasn't exactly the type that drove you mad with desire. She was a pretty nice girl, though. I sat next to her once in the bus from Agerstown and we sort of struck up conversation. I liked her. | Selma is included in my scrapbook because i thought she was very pretty even though i know i would never have a chance with her because of all the guys that are always all over her. She's a very pretty girl and i enjoyed talking to her that one time.

10: I put in Phoebe's record because she is my little sister and i love her but i want her to be a child forever and never grow up. But dropping the record makes me realize she has to grow up sometime. | "Then something terrible happened jsut as i got into the park. I dropped Phoebe's record. It broke into about fifty pieces. i damn hear cried, it made me feel so terrible." Page 154
