This tells us that Tom is the superficial entitled jerk we supposed him as. When Gatsby accepts Tom's invitation he says, "My God, I believe the man's coming...doesn't he know she doesn't want him?" Gatsby's obsession with Daisy is also apparent. Despite the animosity and ill-feelings he accepts the dinner invitation just to be near Daisy.
