Bernard is upset that none of the people in the party came because of him,

"Pierced by every word that was spoken, the tight balloon of Bernard's happy self-confidence was leaking from a thousand wounds...punctured, utterly deflated, he...began to weep."

Lenina was disappointed because she is attracted to John and she wanted to be with him.
