Lying, according to Holden, means being "phony". Holden frequently laments about how he cannot stand people who act like somebody they are not. Apparently everybody does this besides his sister Phoebe and himself,

"I can't stand that stuff. It drives me crazy. It makes me so depressed I go crazy. I hated that goddam Elkton Hills." Ch 2
