Willy is worried about Biff, and his plans to return to Texas. Charley sees Biff as an adult who can take care of himself.

Willy [after a pause, withering]: I can’t understand it. He’s going back to Texas again. What the hell is that?

Charley: Let him go.

Willy: I got nothin’ to give him, Charley, I’m clean, I’m clean.

Charley: He won’t starve. None of them starve. Forget about him.
