Which quote from the text best exemplifies Montag's developing self-awareness and inner reflection?


"Montag looked at these men whose faces were sunburnt by a thousand real and ten thousand imaginary fires, whose work flushed their cheeks and fevered their eyes."


"He was not happy. He said the words to himself. He recognized this as the true state of affairs. He wore his happiness like a mask..."


"Montag said nothing but stood looking at the women's faces as he had once looked at the faces of saints in a strange church he had entered when he was a child."


"Montag grinned the fierce grin of all men singed and driven back by flame. He knew that when he returned to the firehouse, he might wink at himself, a minstrel man, burnt-corked, in the mirror."


"He stood looking up at the air-conditioning vent in the hall for a long time. His wife in theTV parlor paused long enough from reading her script to glance up."
