Even when Dee arrives Maggie doesn’t want to be seen and tries to get back into the house, and only doesn’t because Mama stops her. This strained relationship between Maggie and Dee is due to the two of them being opposites in every way.
At first the concern that the family shows seems genuine, especially for the sister Grete who shows the greatest sympathy for Gregor and takes it upon herself to be his caretaker. His mother and father seem utterly in despair by Gregors transformation and feel that it is a great encumbrance on them since he is the sole breadwinner. Gregor was made to believe that his family is incapable of working and that they were counting on him for support. Gregor in his new cockroach body is unable to communicate with his family, however he is able to hear and understand them. As it turns out his family has been deceiving him; his father has saved up some money unbeknownst to Gregor and his father soon acquires a job as a security guard.

That is going under the assumption that there is a place. "Indigo did not tell her mother about Mr. Lucas being so evil, nor did she mention that her new fiddle could talk."(Norton 43) With in the first few lines of the story Indigo’s violin begins its transformation from merely and instrument to an extension of her soul.

Her mother continually reminds her of her differences throughout the play. Every time the family comes to a confrontation someone retreats to the past and reflects on life as it was back then, not dealing with life as it is for them today.
