Throughout Arthur’s conversation with Lee, Arthur seems to be unsure of what to do about Joanie and if anything this uncertainty causes a conflict within Arthur. Salinger never gave her true identity and only referred to her as ‘the girl’. The tension between the two characters over the phone is remarkable.
