“I was just trying to give you the teen-male perspective."

"Which is?"

"If it moves, screw it.”
Lisa Jackson, Ready to Die

Weaponry, trips to the sun country, tiny bathing suits, For Christmas. "Nothing says Peace on Earth like guns and string bikinis.”
Lisa Jackson, Ready to Die

“No doubt he'd been with Heidi until all hours of the morning. He knew where she stood about sex, condoms, his future, Heidi's ... bringing it up now would only exacerbate an already prickly situation.

"Nothing good happens after midnight," she reminded him.

"You're wrong, Mom, and you know it.”
Lisa Jackson, Ready to Die
