Summary of Chapter 5
When Nick gets back home from his date with Jordan, he runs into Gatsby, and agrees to facilitate the meeting between him and Daisy, and Nick, offended, refuses Gatsby's attempt to pay him for his services. The next day, the weather is atrocious and Gatsby comes over to Nick's home looking pale, tired, and feeling awfully nervous. When Daisy first arrives, things are extremely awkward, but after Nick leaves the pair alone for 30 minutes or so, he comes back to see them overjoyed. Nick muses on whether or not Daisy can possibly live up to Gatsby's expectations of her after being put on a pedestal for so long, while Gatsby gives them both a tour of his home and all his possessions. At the end of the chapter, Nick heads home while Daisy and Gatsby listen to Klipspringer play The Love Nest on the piano.
