Day 24 – Best quote from a novel

I don’t know about *best* quote, since I’m only giving myself like a day to think about the answer to this. But Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novels are chockablock with quotes that make me laugh. Here’s one:

“Sodomy non sapiens,” said Albert under his breath.
“What does that mean?”
“Means I’m buggered if I know.”
–from Mort

And Sam Vimes never fails to please (speaking with a prisoner):
“I get it, good cop, bad cop, eh?”
“If you like, but we’re a bit short-staffed today, so if I give you a cigarette, would you mind kicking yourself in the teeth?”
–from Night Watch
