His boss, Lengel tries to convince him to stay by saying he “doesn’t want to do this to [his] mom and dad.” And Sammy knows right then that he doesn’t but says that it would be “fatal” if he didn’t go through with his decision at this point. When he walks out of the store Sammy realizes “how hard the world was going to be…hereafter.” This line alone provides for a very regretful but serious tone because he knows he made a mistake but now it’s up to him to fix it. The story ends in a very ominous tone as Updike leaves it somewhat open ended so the reader doesn’t really know what happens with Sammy. Considering the entire story, the tone could best be described as humorous and conversational with a hint of seriousness. Updike uses a multitude of different types of diction to convey Sammy’s different tones of judgmental, arrogant, and contemptuous towards girls, himself and his elders through the story.
No one expecting anything of you, no one knowing who your parents were, no one caring if you were a brain surgeon or a bum” (21). Ian is tired of the assumptions people make of his future, because he feels like he is not under control of his life. Since he lives in the archetype of a small town, all the residents know each other, and from word of mouth, any mistake one makes will be known to everyone. Ian resents when people mistake him for his father, and how people say they look alike, because this means that he needs their approval for his actions, as it will affect the reputation of his whole family. This expectation set upon him makes him question whether he truly wants to stay in Struan or find better things to do elsewhere, breaking the tradition.

Willy Loman could of had a better life, but one little mistake ended up messing up his whole dreams.

A woman that was currently at Sammy's counter was middle aged and brought Sammy no sympathy to the shoppers; he sometimes mention them as sheep. His names of the shoppers also include insight of Sammy's view of the ordinary shoppers; Sammy did not care much for others. “Sammy wishes to quit, but he resists doing so because his parents would regard his decision as 'the sad part of the story'” (Thompson 215).

Those characters that resist telling the Inspector the truth suffer more than those who are open. The Inspector says to Gerald: "â€¦If you're easy with me, I'm easy with you'. Notice that he deliberately tries to stop Sheila from blaming herself too much. How ever, he begins to lose patients with Mr Birling: "Don't stammer and yammer at me again, man. I'm losing all the patience with you people'.

On the whole, the case here that people were wronged was mostly betrayal: betrayal to others not only because of unnecessary hatred like Ernesto’s but because of different approaches in life. There was a variety from a typical hedonistic life like Lena’s to a morally correct one like Ray X’s. The choices being all different lead to clashes. As Milan Kundera once said: “When the dreams conflict, clashes occur…” The same happened to our movie.
