In chapter 10 of The Catcher in the Rye, Holden is in the Lavender Room, when he notices three women sitting nearby:
At the table right next to me, there were these three girls around thirty or so. The whole three of them were pretty ugly, and they all had on the kind of hats that you knew they didn't really live in New York, but one of them, the blonde one, wasn't too bad. She was sort of cute, the blonde one.
Holden dances with the blonde girl and complements her sincerely on being an excellent dancer. However, he finds little else to admire about her, remarking to himself that "some of these very stupid girls can really knock you out on a dance floor."
Bernice, the blonde girl, is moderately attractive and can dance. Even so, Holden finds her stupid and boring. The other two girls, Marty and Laverne, are ugly, and have no redeeming features for Holden, whose attitude towards them is somewhere between contempt and pity. His view of the three girls is colored both by class snobbery, and by the superior attitude that people from big cities often adopt to those from small towns. The girls are from Seattle, a place which now has a certain cachet and reputation for sophistication, but in the 1940s, a New Yorker would have regarded it as the middle of nowhere. Holden despises the way they chatter about tourist attractions and try to spot celebrities.
In the end, Holden feels sorry for the girls, and looks down on them as gauche tourists with no idea of what to wear or how to behave. Their determination to get up early the next day to see the first show at Radio City (which may, in fact, merely have been an excuse to leave) sums up their callowness as far as he is concerned:
If somebody, some girl in an awful-looking hat, for instance, comes all the way to New York-from Seattle, Washington, for God's sake, and ends up getting up early in the morning to see the goddam first show at Radio City Music Hall, it makes me so depressed I can't stand it. I'd've bought the whole three of them a hundred drinks if only they hadn't told me that.
