Death of a Salesman Request a play
Around the dinner table, the tension between Marco, Eddie and Rodolpho is heightened. Eddie jokingly suggests that Marco's wife might have more children by the time he returns, which angers Marco. Rodolpho dances with Catherine, and confesses that he can cook. Eddie decides to teach Rodolpho to box, which he uses as an excuse to punch Rodolpho. Marco challenges Eddie to lift up a chair, holding on only to the bottom. Eddie can't do it, but Marco can. The message is clear - Marco will protect Rodolpho from Eddie.
