"Are you implying that shreds of my reputation remain intact?" Will demanded with mock horror. "Clearly I have been doing something wrong. Or not something wrong, as the case may be."

Jem: "Must you go? I was rather hoping you'd stay and be a ministering angel, but if you must go, you must."
Will: "I'll stay. I can minister angelically."

"Bloodthirsty little beasts, never trust a duck!"

Will pointed a finger accusingly in their Direction. "You're ganging up on me. Is this how it's going to be from now on? I'll be the odd man out? Dear God, I'll have to befriend Jessamine."
"Jessamine can't stand you," Jem pointed out

"I have lost everything. Everything."

"You're cut me," he said. He looked at his hand with critical interest. "It might be fatal."

"I couldn't let that that stand, of course. A fight broke out almost immediately. I had the upper hand until Nigel leaped onto the bar and struck me from behind with a pitcher of gin."

" Goading Will into single combat is like punishing a dog after you've tormented it into biting you."

"I think you owe Will an apology." "I" Gabriel said, " would rather have my entrails yanked out and tied in a knot in front of my own eyes than apologize to such a worm." "Gracious," said Jem mildly.

“'A little girl robbed you?' Tessa said.
'Actually, she wasn’t a little girl at all, as it turns out, but a midget in a dress with a penchant for violence, who goes by the name of Six-Fingered Nigel.'

"I have a red and blue striped waistcoat," Henry interjected, reaching for the peas.
"And if that isn't proof that those two colors should never be seen together under Heaven, I don't know what is."
