What page is the this quote on in the book Catcher in the Rye

""Then the carousel started, and I watched her go round and round...All the kids tried to grap for the gold ring, and so was old Phoebe, and I was sort of afraid she's fall off the goddam horse, but I didn't say or do anything.

 

I'm doing a report and i wrote this quote down, but i forgot to write the page number down and now i can't find it please help all i need is the page number.

It really depends on which edition of the book you are reading, and the size of the book. In my book (little brown release) the part is located on page 232       4th paragraph.

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.
