…from 72 Hours:
Grace: Hey! Put that line back. It’s one of my favorites.
Shan: You don’t need lines just to prove how witty you are.
Grace: So I should be unwitty…oh, you read that damn review again, didn’t you?
Grace: You know better than that, you dumbass. You read it, take what’s of value from it, then let it go.
Shan: I try. But it’s like if somebody calls your kid ugly. You can say, “Screw you, lady, my kid ain’t ugly”, but it’s going to fester there. And you’ll find yourself watching the kid thinking “are his eyes too close together?” or “Is eighteen months to early for electrolysis, ’cause she’s awfully hairy” or “OMG, he looks like Great Aunt Beatrice! How did I never see that before?”
Grace: Put. It. Back.
Grace: And just so you know, you called me Olivia on page 67, you dumbass.
Grace: It’s a love scene, so yeah, ouch.
Shan: Why…what the hell book is she from?
Olivia: Oh, that’s lovely. Thank you so much.
