"I took my old hunting hat out of my pocket while I walked and put it on." (P122) Symbolism
"... I'd walk down a few floors--holding onto my guts, blood leaking all over the place--and then I'd ring the elevator bell. As soon as old Maurice opened the doors, he'd see me with the automatic in my hand and he'd start screaming at me." (P104) Imagery
"I'll just tell you about this madman stuff that happened to me around last Christmas just before I got pretty run-down and had to come out here and take it easy." (P1) Foreshadowing
"Or you’d just passed by one of those puddles in the street with gasoline rainbows in them." (P122) Metaphor
“If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me" (P1)(First Person) Point of View
"The one side of my head--the right side--is full of millions of gray hairs." (P9) hyperbole
"It's really ironical, because I'm six foot two and a half and I have gray hair. I really do...I've had them ever since I was a kid. And yet I still act sometimes like I was only about twelve" (P9) Irony
"They both laughed like hyenas at stuff that wasn't even funny." (P37) Simile
"Lawyers are all right, I guess - but it doesn't appeal to me...All you do is make a lot of dough and play golf and play bridge... and look like a hot-shot. How would you know you weren't being a phony? The trouble is, you wouldn't."(P172) Tone
"What I was really hanging around for, I was trying to feel some kind of good-bye... I don't care if it's a sad good-by or a bad good-by, but when I leave a place I like to know I'm leaving it. If you don't, you feel even worse." (P4) Conflict
"Certain things they should stay the way they are. You ought to be able to stick them in one of those big glass cases and just leave them alone." (P122) Theme
