From Grave Peril by Jim Butcher:

"Holy shit," I breathed. "Hellhounds."
"Harry," Michael said sternly. "You know I hate it when you swear."
"You're right. Sorry. Holy shit," I breathed, "heckhounds."
"Politics is an ocean of toes" - Jacques Parizeau (1930-2015, RIP)

Okay. This is much less funny and much more ... morbid. So you can safely ignore this if you're not into that. But it's the kind of quote where all I can do is laugh nervously and say "what the hell just happened?" By the way, it's about a woman who was desperately trying to get pregnant but couldn't.

From IT by Stephen King:

"But she did remember one time when she got her period, sliding open the cupboard under the bathroom sink to get a sanitary napkin; she remembered looking at the box of Stayfree pads and thinking that the box looked almost smug, seemed almost to be saying: Hello, Patty! We are your children. We are the only children you will ever have, and we are hungry. Nurse us. Nurse us on blood."

Ha... messed up.

Iain M Banks - Look To Windward (about the Culture hyper-AI Minds)

"Oh, they never lie. They dissemble, evade, prevaricate, confound, confuse, distract, obscure, subtly misrepresent and wilfully misunderstand with what often appears to be a positively gleeful relish and are generally perfectly capable of contriving to give one an utterly unambiguous inpression of their future course of action while in fact intending to do exactly the opposite, but they never lie. Perish the thought."

from the book, Nudist Among us by Allen Parker

"Ever have a wave of Hot Molten Stupid rise in your body? You know, the kind that starts in your feet and makes its way up to your brain, then spills out of your mouth? I think that this is the first time that this happened to me. Unfortunately, it was not the last. I buried my thoughts in not saying anything stupid, but stupid was all that would come out."
