Rita Webb (ritawebb) Here's one of my favorite quotes from an online comic called Girl Genius:

"Agatha Clay: I've never had coffee. Lilith said a young lady shouldn't drink stimulants.
Zeetha: Drink your coffee like a warrior.
Agatha Clay: ...Yes, Zeetha. "
— phil foglio, kaja foglio


end of the page...

Krosp (the cat): I think you are about to find out that Lilith was a smart lady.

a few pages later...

"Agatha: Say, could I get another cup of coffee?
The Seneschals: NO!"
— Phil and Kaja Foglio
