The notion originated with Daisy’s suggestion that we hire five bath-rooms and take cold baths

from F. Scott Fitzgerald – The Great Gatsby (Chapter VII) on Rap Genius


Daisy made the first suggestion, and Nick remembers it because of how ridiculous it was. She wants everyone to get their own room to cool off, even though they will only be staying for a short time. This tells a lot about Daisy and her love for material wealth, since she wants to do anything that she can afford.
