    “I took a bite of cookie and chewed. “Hmmm,” I said, trying not to spit crumbs. “Clear vanilla notes, too-sweet chocolate chips, distinct flavor of brown sugar. A decent cookie, not spectacular. Still, a good-hearted cookie, not pretentious.” I turned to Fang. “What say you?”
    “It’s fine.”
    Some people just don’t have what it takes to appreciate a cookie.”

    “Q: You'er presented with a smooth-faced, eight-foot-high wooden wall. Your objective? Get over it. To, like, save comrades or something. How to accomplish this?

    A: Take a running start, brace one foot against the wall, throw one hand to the top, try to hang on long enough for a comrade to either grab your hand at the top or for another comrade to push your butt up from below. It takes team work!

    BKA (bird kid answer): Or you could just, like, fly over it.”
    James Patterson, Max

    “That was the funniest thing I'd heard in days.
    You're kidding, right? PLEASE tell me you have a stronger motive for me than 'fair is fair.' Life isn't FAIR, Dean....Nothing is fair, EVER. That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard. I need to help you because FAIR IS FAIR? Try, 'I need you to help me so I won't rip out your spine and beat you with it.' I MIGHT respond to that. MAYBE.”

    “Don’t ever leave me again,” I said in a tiny voice.
    I won’t,” he promised into my hair, sounding most un-Fang-like. “I won’t. Not ever.”
    And just like that, a cold shard of ice that had been inside my chest ever since we’d split up-well, it just disappeared. I felt myself relax for the first time in I don’t known how long. The wind was chilly, but the sun was bright, and my whole flock was together. Fang and I were together.
    Excuse me? I’m alive too.” Iggy’s plaintive voice made me pull back.”

    “Tell me again what we're doing here," I said, running a continuous scan of our surroundings.
    Fang popped some Cracker Jack into his mouth. "We're here to watch manly men do manly things."
    I followed Fang's line of sight: He was watching the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, who were not doing manly things, by any stretch of the imagination.”

    “Fang: "There is one bright side to this."
    Max: "Yeah? What's that?" The new and improved Erasers would mutilate us before they killed us?
    Fang: *grins* You looove me. (holds out arms) You love me this much.
    Max: My shriek of appalled rage would probably be heard in California, or maybe Hawaii.”

    “Fang: “Let them blow up the world, and global-warm it, and pollute it. You and me and the others will be holed up somewhere, safe. We’ll come back out when they’re all gone, done playing their games of world domination."
    Max: “That’s a great plan. Of course, by then we won’t be able to go outside because we’ll get fried by the lack of the ozone layer. We’ll be living at the bottom of the food chain because everything with flavor will be full of mercury or radiation or something! And there won’t be any TV or cable because all the people will be dead! So our only entertainment will be Gazzy singing the constipation song! And there won’t be amusement parks and museums and zoos and libraries and cute shoes! We’ll be like cavemen, trying to weave clothes out of plant fibers. We’ll have nothing! Nothing! All because you and the kids want to kick back in a La-Z-Boy during the most important time in history!”
    Fang: “So maybe we should sign you up for a weaving class. Get a jump start on all those plant fibers.”
    Max: "I HATE YOU!!!"
    Fang: "NO YOU DOOOOOON'T!!"
    Voice: "You two are crazy about each other.”

    “You don't speak much, do you?" ter Borcht said, circling him slowly.
    Fittingly, Fang said nothing.
    Vhy do you let a girl be de leader?" ter Borcht asked, a calculating look in his eye.

    “The guys were totally skuzzy, grinning horribly, showing holes where teeth should be.
    “Boys, God doesn’t like you,” Fang intoned behind them.
    Whaaat? I thought, dumbfounded.
    “Wha!” they said, whirling.
    At that moment, Fang snapped out his huge wings and shone the penlight under his chin so it raked his cheekbones and eyes. My mouth dropped open. He looked like the angel of death.
    His dark wings filled the hallway almost to the ceiling, and he moved them up and down. “God doesn’t like bad people,” he said, using a really weird, deep voice.
    “What the heck?” one of the squatters murmured shallowly, his mouth slack, his eyes bugging out of his head.
    I whipped my own wings open. Fun, anyway.
    “This was a test,” I said, using my best spooky voice. “And guess what? You both failed.”
    The bums stopped dead, looks of horror and amazement on their faces.
    Then Fang growled, “Rowr!” He stepped forward, sweeping his wings up and down: the avenging demon. I almost cracked up.
    “Rowr!” I said myself, shaking my wings out.
    “Ahhhhh!” the guys yelled, backpedaling fast. Unfortunately, they were standing at the top of the staircase. They fell awkwardly, trying to grab each other, and rolled down two flights like lumpy bags of potatoes, shrieking the whole way.
    Fang and I slapped each other a quick high five—and we were out of there, jack.”
