In chapter 10, Holden goes down to Lavender Room, and reaches to blonde lady sitting and giggling with other two women. This blonde named Bernice can dance well and impresses Holden with her dance and he kisses her on her head that irritates the girl. During conversation, he asks her about where has she come from and sarcastically tells she is a nice conversationalist, which she could pick up.
