Mildred is very vague when she tries to tell Montag what happened to Clarisse. She was not even that familiar with her neighbor, Clarisse, and hadn't noticed that she was even gone. She did not even remember to tell Montag what happened to Clarisse. She tells Montag, with very little emotion and feeling, that Clarisse was hit by a car. She is not even sure this is what happened to her, only that she heard it through the grapevine. She had heard what happened to Clarisse four days earlier, and didn't remember to tell Montag.
