The boy says "because of that stupid old thing at the end there." and also, "why does she come here at all- who wants her?". At this point, Miss Brill is completely crushed.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
