The Great Gatsby

Quote Identification

Identify speaker, plot and significance.

I had on a new plaid skirt also that blew a little in the wind, and whenever this happened the red, white, and blue banners in front of all the houses stretched out stiff and said tut−tut−tut−tut, in a disapproving way. The largest of the banners and the largest of the lawns belonged to Daisy Fay's house.

The speaker is Jordan Baker. She is describing her relationship and back history wih Daisy. This is significant because she herself notes the disapproval of her behavior..... even as a girl.
