In Chapter Seven, Old Bull's recognition of Dean's madness foreshadows the trying times to come for Dean personally and within his relationships. Although Sal respects Old Bull, he always defends Dean as being filled with the zest for life, something that people misconstrue as being madness. Sal doesn't believe that Dean is going mad but living fully.
