Good luck with your paper!!!!
I don't have the book in front of me, but this happens at the very end of the story (one of the last pages). Holden sees Phoebe on the carousel reaching for the brass ring but realizes he doesn't have to (or can't) save her from every danger in life. This stands in contrast to his desire to be the "catcher in the rye" and wipe out the profanity from the elementary school. It's an important turning point in Holden's life.
Good luck with your paper.
