Daisy looked up at him with the kind of expression that Jesus might have given someone who had just explained that he was probably allergic to bread and fishes, so could He possibly do him a quick chicken salad:


Grahame Coats smiled at her in exactly the same way that striking cobras tend not to.

I dont have a favorite one line just yet, though the bastard one was really, really hillarious.

I could not stop laughing at this though..

"You arent scared of limes, are you?" asked Charlie, before remembering that he'd given the lie to Daisy.

The creature laughed, scornfully. "I," it said, "am frightened of nothing."

"Nothing?"

"Nothing," it said.

Charlie said, "are you extremely frightened of nothing?"

"Absolutely terrified of it," admitted the dragon.

"You know," said Charlie, "I have nothing in my pockets. Would you like to see it?"

"No," said the dragon, uncomfortably, "I most definetly would not."

i LOVED the moment when Rosie and Spider kiss, and the paragraph that goes "They were kissing. Put like that, and you could be forgiven for presuming that this was a normal kiss, all lips and skin and possibly even a little tongue. You'd miss how he smiled, how his eyes glowed. And then, after the kiss was done, how he stood, like a man who had just discovered the art of standing and had figured out how to do it better than anyone else who would ever come along."

that had me with tears in my eyes. it's perfect.

and also the bastard quote. this time with the tears of laughter.


Limertilly: A pagan deity forgotten by man and therefore banished to the realms of memory and darkness now remembered by a young girl in downtown L.A. in the form of a dream and therefore freed to reap your revenge on the people who discarded you, thereby forcing said girl to learn to use her innate yet awesome powers as a soothsayer to gather forces of the Earth to defy you and once more banish you to your cold, cold prisoooooon

i dont have a favorite quote, it's been too soon and i'd need to read it again to have a favorite. the above is close to my favorite altho' i didnt remember it until i read this post. My most memorable has to be all the st andrews asking if he's the man with the lime and his answer all the time is ihavent got it with me its back at the hotel except the last time hes asked it and hes got it so he shows. at least i think thats how it happened, im at work on my lunch break and the book is at home. i just finished reading sunday night (last night).

sorry if this is a little inaccurate, see reason above; will try to do better in future.

whats really funny about that is the girl he shows the lime to isnt asking to see it, she was gonna ask if he wants a buffet or what ever for dinner. "are you..." "yes, yes i am, wanna see?" hahaha.

This made me laugh so much, i was violently assulted by a loved one.
"Hello" said Daisy, with a smile. "Would you like a cup of tea?" "You might as well not bother," said Fat Charlie. "I've seen the telly. I know how it goes. This is the whole good cop bad cop thing isn't it? You'll give me a cup of tea and some jaffa cakes, then some big hard-bitten bastard with a hair-trigger temper comes in and shouts at me and pours the tea away and starts eating my jaffa cakes and then you stop him from physically attacking me, and make him give me my tea and jaffa cakes back, and in my gratitude i tell you everything you want to know."
"We could skip all that," said Daisy, "and you could just tell us what we want to know. Anyway we don't have any jaffa cakes."


i played connect the dots with your beauty marks and came up with picture perfect sheet music.

A footnote at the bottom of page 220:

"The ship had been the Sunny Archipelago until an attack of the gastric flu had made
international news. A cheap attempt to rebrand it without changing the ship's initials done by the chairman of the board, who did not speak English as well as he thought he did, had left the cruise ship rejoicing in the name of the Squeak Attack."

::hits table laughing::

And also:

"Spider venom comes in many forms. It can often take a long while to discover the full effects of a bite. Naturalists have pondered this for years: there are spiders whose bite can cause the place bitten to rot and die, sometimes more than a year after it was bitten. As to why spiders do this, the answer is simple. It's because spiders think this is funny, and they don't want you ever to forget them."

so far, my favortie has to be:

quote:
"you're no help", he told the lime. This was unfair. It was only a lime; there was nothing special about it at all. It was doing the best it could.


maybe it's not the funniest, but it's the sweetest quote I've read.

THIS:

There are myth-places. They exist, each in their own way. Some of them are overlaid on the world; others exist beneath the world as it is, like an underpainting.
There are mountains. They are the rocky places you will reach before you come to the cliffs that border the end of the world, and there are caves in those mountains, deep caves that were inhabited long before the first man walked the earth.
They are inhabited still.


AND THIS:

Different creatures have different eyes. Human eyes (unlike, say, cat's eyes, or an octopus's) are only made to see one version of reality at time. Fat Charlie saw one thing with his eyes, and he saw something else with his mind, and in the gulf between the two things, madness waited.

All the descriptions of the Bird Woman . I love her raincoat (it reminds me of Old Bailey, one of my favourite character in Neverwhere... odd place, the real Old Bailey).
