"He says he was gonna put
me in the movies, he says I
was a natural"
Symbolizes her objectification
The dress symbolizes that she is beautiful however also shows that
she is an item to the Curley, rather than a person.
She is called "Jailbait" and "Rat-trap" because her physical appearance and the way she acts
would cause somebody to believe that she is single when she is actually
married which could therefore get people into trouble.
What she says to other people
"I could get you strung up so easy it ain't even funny"
"who could blame a guy for looking?"
She says these things to other people to make herself feel better and
more powerful when in actual fact she is actually powerless and insecure
