Christopher Moore
“Shylock repointed his twitching, accusatory digit at his daughter. “You do not say such things in my house. You—you—you—you—” “Run along, love, it appears that Papa’s been stricken with an apoplexy of the second person.”
Christopher Moore, The Serpent of Venice

Christopher Moore
“True, I am drunk, and small, and damp, but mistake not my moistness for weakness, although there's an argument to be made for that, as well.”
Christopher Moore, The Serpent of Venice

Christopher Moore
“Latin, Greek, and English, plus a smattering of Italian and fucking French.” “Fucking French, you say? Well . . .” “Oui,” said I, in perfect fucking French.”
Christopher Moore, The Serpent of Venice

Heather O'Neill
“Adam was charming and spoke perfect French. Like many anglophones in Montréal, he actually spoke French better than we did. They knew exactly which verbs to use in the same way that people knew which utensils to use while eating at a fancy dinner. It was very proper because they learned it from books. They didn’t know slang or how to curse. They didn’t know how to do anything other than be proper and reserved. It was state-sponsored, dry-clean-only French.”
Heather O'Neill, The Girl Who Was Saturday Night

Heather O'Neill
“Oh, we had a lot of sex back then in Montreal; it wasn’t just me. Blame it on the cold. The roses in everyone’s cheeks made them seem way more appealing than they actually were. We confused the indoors with intimacy and electric heating with connection.”
Heather O'Neill, The Girl Who Was Saturday Night
