Kathy and Tommy
- Throughout the text we get the idea that there is some element of love between Tommy and Kathy.
- During their youth they never express these feelings.
- When they do become a couple we see that they do have sex and they do talk. However there is no real emotional connection expressed.
- When Kathy finally leaves Tommy we see Tommy raise his hands as if he has scored a goal. This shows a complete lack of understanding of the significance of the situation.
Their upbringing means that they have no real concept of love and that is reflected in their relationship.
