But wait! There's more!
Mr. Burke, you have the floor:
"The heat was fierce but I was still half-dazed, so I dived in and grabbed his ankles. One of his moccasins slipped off as he came free and at first I thought I’d ripped him in half. Then I thought he’d dropped a dwarf on the Audi. Strange the things you think about when you’re trying not to think at all."and
"Finn played good music but you had to be in the mood. Some nights he went off on a jag: Cohen, Drake, Walker, Waits. Santa Claus with a straight razor in his mitt, black dogs howling down the moon. Spend long enough driving a cab listening to Finn, you’ll wind up with a Mohawk cruising underage whores, trying to think of a politician it’d be worth the bullet to plug."and
"‘Might as well stay up after I knock off. Want me to grab a DVD?’That's good stuff.
"‘Something black-and-white,’ he said. ‘The kind where they crack wise and smoke a lot.’
"I swung around by Blockbusters and picked up Duck Soup, Groucho on the cover tipping ash off his cigar."
