In the story, Nick and his friends have just come from a heated argument, as they drive endlessly in the direction of the Valley of Ashes. When they are almost there, Nick notices something.

He feels pressured to do or say something. So he immediately remembers to mention the gas to Tom, like it was the only thing he could have done to feel safe again. He is not the only one who gets a strong feeling from the eyes; George tells Myrtle that God sees everything.

According to the bible, in Jeremiah 23:24, “Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the Lord. Do not I fill heaven and earth?” When George finds out that Myrtle is cheating on him with Tom, he doesn’t take it well at all. He abuses her while she tries to deny her affairs.
