I’ll give you one quote from each chapter you need from The Great Gatsby and let you or other editors find second ones. In chapter seven, page 141 of my edition, Tom says:Go on.  He won’t annoy you.  I think he realizes that his presumptuous little flirtation is over.This quote signals that Tom has won and Gatsby has lost.  Daisy has refused to declare that she never loved Tom and always loved Gatsby.  She will be staying with Tom and Tom knows it.  He is so sure of himself that he lets Daisy ride home with Gatsby.In chapter eight, page 158, the narrator writes:She [Daisy] wanted her life shaped now, immediately–and the decision must be made by some force–of love, of money, of unquestionable practicality–that was close at hand.That force took shape in the middle of spring with the arrival of Tom Buchanan.This is a flashback that explains how Daisy and Tom first got together.  It explains why Daisy did what she did.In chapter nine, page 187, Nick is speaking to Tom and he relates some of the dialogue:”Tom,” I inquired, “what did you say to Wilson that afternoon?”He stared at me without a word and I knew I had guessed right about those missing hours.  I started to turn away but he took a step after me and grabbed my arm.Tom then explains why he told Wilson that Gatsby owns the car that killed Myrtle.  The fact that Tom goes after Nick shows his continued insecurity and his need to explain himself.
