Gatsby tells Nick a preposterous story about who he is and how he has come to be in the position he is in.  He tries to make himself appear better than he is, but Nick soon figures out that Gatsby is not who he seems to be.  Nick seems to be a good listener; ultimately he does bring Gatsby and Daisy together for a time.
