Walter doesn't have space for himself in the apartment to talk to his friends. He doesn't see the problem with Travis not sleeping enough. Travis needs money for school, but Ruth doesn't give it to him. Walter even gives him one dollar. Walter reproaches Ruth for not listening to him, for not supporting him in realizing his dream.
