Eugene se confruntă cu psihologia cazonă și dă piept cu soldaţi recrutaţi din toate categoriile sociale – întruchipări ale meschinăriei, stupidităţii şi grobianismului sau, deopotrivă, ale vulnerabilităţii şi ale neputinţei, îşi pierde virginitatea şi descoperă laturi neomeneşti ale omului.

Războiul din Europa se aproprie, familia continuă bătălia pentru bani, supravieţuire şi împlinirea idealurilor: mătuşa nu gasește bărbatul potrivit, tatăl e bolnav, incapabil să muncească, fratele vrea să vadă lumea iar mama este izolată în bucătărie. Eugene nu îşi doreşte decât să aibă un prieten şi, poate, să ştie mai multe despre fetele dezbrăcate.

Star-Spangled Girl, The Fragment disponibil online
Andy and Norman are two earnest young men using their apartment as a publishing office for a "protest" magazine in San Francisco. Sophie, an Olympic swimmer and all-American girl, moves into another apartment on the same floor. Sophie makes her first appearance paying a good-neighbor visit to the combination home and office of the two publishers. Her friendliness and charm leave Norman hopelessly smitten. Thereafter love, with him, is a determined madness, with the humor of it heightened by her frantic rejection of him. Meanwhile, his partner is fielding telephone calls from the irate printer who wants to collect the money due him, and distracting the landlady from thoughts of back rent with motorcycle rides and surfing expeditions. And while she is convinced that they are editing a dangerously subversive magazine, our heroine soon finds that her real source of annoyance is that the wrong man is pressing his attentions on her. Happily this situation is reversed in time, as love and politics blend delightfully

Sweet Charity
The young woman Charity Hope Valentine is a taxi dancer in New York City. She meets her boyfriend Charlie in Central Park. While Charlie silently preens himself, Charity speaks the pick-up lines she imagines him saying, and tells him how handsome he is. Charlie then steals her handbag and pushes her into the lake before running off. Passers-by discuss the apparent drowning but do nothing, until a young Spaniard finally rescues her. In the Hostess Room of the Fandango Ballroom, Charity tries to convince both herself and the other skeptical taxi dancers that Charlie tried to save her. Nickie, a fellow dancer, tells Charity that her problem is "you run your heart like a hotel — you've always got people checking in and checking out". The manager, Herman, arrives to tell them it is time for work. The hostess dancers proposition the audience in the front room of the Fandango Ballroom. Helene and Nickie try to comfort Charity about Charlie's absence. On the street, Charity gives to every beggar who approaches her until she realizes she has no money. Just then, film star Vittorio Vidal rushes out of the smart Pompeii Club, in pursuit of his beautiful mistress, Ursula. Ursula refuses to go back inside with Vittorio, who promptly takes the only-too-willing Charity instead. Inside the Pompeii Club, the dancers are dancing the latest craze, The Rich Man's Frug. To everyone's astonishment, the famous Vittorio Vidal is accompanied by the unknown Charity. She tries to steer him away from the subject of Ursula. Finally, he wants to dance. Not having eaten since breakfast, Charity faints. There is general agreement amongst the dancers that she needs to be "laid down". Vidal asks "where?", and Charity recovers enough to prompt Vidal with "your apartment!".
