Daisy Buchanan: Rich girls don't marry poor boys.

Jay Gatsby: How do you do, old sport? I'm Gatsby.

Nick Carraway: They say you killed a man.
Jay Gatsby: Only one?

Jay Gatsby: Klipspringer has been here since a party I threw in April. I didn't even realise he was here until two weeks ago.

Daisy Buchanan: And when I was in the delivery room, waking up from the ether, I asked the nurse whether it was a boy or a girl. She said it was a girl - and I turned my head to the side and cried. And then I said, I hope she grows up to be a pretty little fool. That's about the best a girl can hope for these days, to be a pretty little fool.

Factual error: Right after George Wilson kills himself with the revolver, the gun is seen falling into the fish pond in Gatsby's living room. Since Wilson shot himself in the head by placing the gun to the roof of his mouth, there is no possible way the gun could have flown so far away from his body, especially without getting bloody.
