John Green
“Lady and gentleman, when my parents left Korea with nothing but the clothes on their backs and the considerable wealth they had amassed in the shipping business, they had a dream. They had a dream that one day amid the snowy hilltops of western North Carolina, their son would lose his virginity to a cheerleader in the woman's bathroom of a Waffle House just off the interstate. My parents have sacrificed so much for this dream! And that is why we must journey on, despite all trials and tribulations! Not for me and least of all for the poor cheerleader in question, but for my parents and indeed for all immigrants who came to his great nation in what they themselves could never have: CHEERLEADER SEX.”
John Green, Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances

Ellen DeGeneres
“And now I've got to explain the smell that was in there before I went in there. Does that ever happen to you? It's not your fault. You've held your breath, you just wanna get out, and now you open the door and you have to explain, 'Oh! Listen, there's an odor in there and I didn't do it. It's bad.”
Ellen DeGeneres, My Point... And I Do Have One

Lucy Christopher
“Everyone wanted answers I wasn't ready to give.”
Lucy Christopher, Stolen

Charlotte Eriksson
“It's the smell of him in the bathroom, all I need to get ready for the day. Watching him get dressed, and the sound in the kitchen; a slow hum of a song and his movements, picking things to eat. The way I could observe him, for hours, just go on with his day – or as he sleeps – simply breathing in and out, in and out, and it's like the hymn that sings me to peace.
I know the world is still out there and I know I'm not yet friendly to its pace, but as long as I know him with me, here, there, somewhere – us – I know I have a chance.”
Charlotte Eriksson

“I have notes in my bathroom, yellow notes, and I stick 'em on the mirror, things that happened that were uplifting boosters for me. Notes that say, "Today is special, make today count." And then I have one note on the mirror in the middle that says, "Look at the other notes.”
Burt Bacharach

Shelly Crane

Shelly Crane, Consume

Leviak B. Kelly

Leviak B. Kelly, Religion: The Ultimate STD: Living a Spiritual Life without Dogmatics or Cultural Destruction

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
“Then came the time for the evening visit to the toilet, for which, in all likelihood, you had waited, all atremble, all day. How relieved, how eased, the whole world suddenly became! How the great questions all simplified themselves at the same instant---did you feel it?”
Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956

“There are four categories of questions Emmily asks:
1. Can I please go to the bathroom?
2. Where is the bathroom?
3. Is it okay if I raise my hand and ask a question?
4. I don't understand anything you've said in the last thirty minutes. Could you explain it again? Also the last six weeks.”
Jim Benton, Okay, So Maybe I Do Have Superpowers

Eve Bunting
“That was the best time I've had in that bathroom since I started school.”
Eve Bunting, Sixth-Grade Sleepover

Joko Pinurbo
“Beberapa bulan tinggal di rumah itu, saya tidak pernah mendapat gangguan apa-apa selain serbuan tikus-tikus yang cericitnya membuat keheningan terasa makin menggema sehingga saya bisa dengan tenang menulis novel yang sudah lama saya idam-idamkan. Kecurigaan baru muncul ketika suatu hari saya jatuh sakit. Dalam sakit saya sering mendengar suara orang batuk di kamar mandi, kadang disertai jeritan Sakit Euy!”
Joko Pinurbo, Telepon Genggam

Barbara Ehrenreich
“Sometimes Carlie hands me the squirt bottle of "Bam" (an acronym for something that begins, ominously, with "butyric" - the rest of it has been worn off the label) and lets me do the bathrooms. No service ethic challenges me here to new heights of performance. I just concentrate on removing the pubic hairs from the bathtubs, or at least the dark ones that I can see.”
Barbara Ehrenreich, Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting by in America

Gunnhild Øyehaug
“The lightbulb in my bathroom has blown [...] at night it's dark there in a really weird way, I can stand for ages looking at everything in there, the towels hanging from the hooks, the toothbrush in the glass, the toothpaste, the razor, the shower curtain, and it's like I'm not in the room, like I shouldn't be there, like I'm seeing things how they are when I'm not there, do you understand what I mean? And that I shouldn't be, that somehow I'm a hindrance, but that's almost why I stay there.”
Gunnhild Øyehaug, Knots: Stories

“She almost topples out of bed one morning and Remus has to grab hold of her waist. "Center of gravity is off, huh?" he says, doing his best not to chuckle because she's become irritable in this last month.

"Maybe just a little," she concedes with a huff. He helps her up with a gentle push and she toddles towards the bathroom. "Seriously, if I spend any more time in the loo I'm going to move in here permanently."

"Practical, but I don't think you'd enjoy taking your tea in there.”
firetoflame, Chasing Grindylows

Sol Luckman
“bathroom: (n.) where Americans go to argue about gender while the country goes down the toilet.”
Sol Luckman, The Angel's Dictionary

Gina Barreca
“Like most women, I’ve spent far too much time shuffling around this mortal coil looking for non-horror-show toilets. Few of my male counterparts partake of this quest. Instead, with the cheerful insouciance of Labrador puppies, they regard the earth as their urinal.”
Gina Barreca

Elle Kennedy
“He looks at the bathtub, where I’m lounging like Cleo-fucking-patra. He looks at the bubbles surrounding my body like a fluffy white cloud. And then he looks at Winston. “Dude,” I blurt out. “It’s not what it looks like.” “Nope, nope, nope, I don’t want to know!” Logan throws his hands in the air and starts backing toward the door as if he accidentally walked into a lion’s den. He halts. Snatches his pants off the rack. Continues backing away. His eyes once again focus on the pink dildo two inches from my hand. I try again. “I promise you, it’s not—” “I don’t want to know.”
Elle Kennedy, The Score

Rachel Caine
“Oh, God, it's early," he groaned. "Hell. Well, at least I can grab the bathroom first."
Claire jumped to her feet. "What time is it?"
"Nine," he said, and yawned again. She reached over him, pushed the hidden button, dashed past him to the door, barely remembering to shed the afghan on the way. "Hey! Dibs on the bathroom! I mean it!"
She grabbed her clothes and jumped in the bathroom just as Shane, still yawning, stumbled out of the hidden room.
"But I called dibs!" he said, and knocked on the door. "Dibs! Damn girls don't understand the rules....”
Rachel Caine, Glass Houses

“She was feeling something: a tiny pinpoint of feeling. She shifted slightly on the bathroom tiles. No. Surely not. From a book?”
Lianne Moriarty, Big Little Lies

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“I used to think that size does not count, until I realized that most people either find other people’s faeces more disgusting than a bird’s droppings, or they do not find the latter disgusting at all.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

L.J. Shen
“I wobbled to the restroom and stood in line for ten minutes. It sucked, because most women were there to powder their noses, and that was precisely the thing I was afraid Alex was going to do when no one was looking.”
L.J. Shen, Midnight Blue

Robert Bevan
“Dude!" cried Time. "What the fuck, man!"

"Sorry," said Cooper. "I thought this was a bathroom." He stuck out a pouty lower lip.

"What could possibly have led you to believe this was a bathroom?" the lizard creature hissed. "The door is clearly marked OFFICE!"

"I can't read your lizard language," said Cooper.”
Robert Bevan, The Creep on the Borderlands

Alan Hollinghurst
“There is a thumping silence, and the light of the one lamp across the wet tiled floor seems conscious that it will illuminate this and many other atrocities, just as it will go on shining through days and months of sudden speechless lusts, and all the intervening hours of silent emptiness.”
Alan Hollinghurst, The Swimming-Pool Library

Gina Barreca
“We all know that history is personal, so here is my brief “Autobiography by Bathroom.”
I’ve titled it “To Pee or Not to Pee.” Not to get all Shakespearean or anything, but the process does involve shocks that flesh is heir to, the baring of bodkins, swearing, and what can feel like a sea of troubles.”
Gina Barreca

Gina Barreca
“India’s latest latrine triumph will improve the lives of many of its citizens. Given what else has been going on in the rest of the world, any reports of currently “defecation-free” zones, literal or metaphorical, are welcome.”
Gina Barreca
