" Do I at least get to keep the toothbrush?”
“Sure. Unless you can get it back in that wrapper and seal it up all nice and new. Well, that’s what the last girl did. See,
you can hardly tell it’s been opened!”

" Lucifer sharpened his gaze and focused on Ajax. “Yes… I want you to drive over to New Jersey, load those two corpses into your car and take them back to the Italians… personally”
“In my car?”
“They haven’t been in the water more than a week, Ajax.”
“But actually… inside?”
“Well,” Lucifer’s patience was fading, “If you tie them to the fenders like you’re coming back from Deer Camp, the Italians might not find you quite as endearing…”

" Well, next time that Gerry Rees comes in, send him to me,” Lois threatened. “I’ll wait until he’s nice and distracted and then boom, I’ll pull out the brass knuckles!”
“You’ll do no such thing!” Maggie warned her. “That’d hurt everyone’s business here! …And you got brass knuckles? Where the hell did you get brass knuckles?”
“They been in the family for years. Grandpap had ‘em down on the docks.” Lois admitted.
“Lois being the oldest, they went to her…” Margaret added.
“Well, just the same, we can’t afford anyone leaving any traceable marks on the gentlemen around here.”

" Apple Brandy?”
“It’s for my tea,” she explained. “Medicinal, you know.”
“Medicinal?” The Reverend tried to hide a smile.
“Well, yeah,” Maddy started to smile herself. “Without the brandy, it’d be just some crumpled up leaves floatin’ in warm water… and that’d just make me sick!”

9 " Little Marjorie was born an only child some forty years ago. She had lost her mother at a young age and her father never remarried. All her life she had been cursed with the need for her ‘coke-bottle’ glasses with the practical over-sized frames. And then there was the unfortunate appearance of her protruding front teeth. She had always been a slight child, but when children begin to grow into young men and women, slight becomes scrawny and her lack of fashion-sense and self-worth had sealed her social fate. Marjorie had never gone to Prom, nor any dance for that matter, and when the boys chose mates and began the next phase of the great circle of life…little Marjorie Morningstar had not been included. --From The Great Northern Coven "
" Dear, Mr. Ajax…don’t ye know…the fires of Hell are stoked by righteous lawyers! Tis a fact it is. All that hot air… How’d ya think they get that Brimstone so hot?”
--Old Tom Goodling from Angela's Coven "
" No, they’re just black vinyl. Probably somebody else’s record that didn’t sell for shit and they got stuck with a bunch of leftovers. They hit it with some spray paint and stick a commemorative label on it and you’ve got your ‘Official Gold Record.’ Kind of ironic though, isn’t it…marking your success with someone else’s failure.”

" Let me get this straight: You want to poison me nearly to death, put me out to the side of the road and then set me on fire, right?"
"...It sounded a lot better when we were out in the mushroom patch."
"Those must have been SOME mushrooms!"
--Reggie Sinclair and The Witches in Training from Angela's Coven. "
" Obsession is an addiction you may never shake free of. It just… holds you and never gives anything in return. But love, you can give all you’ve got to love and it always gives you back more. That’s how you can tell the difference between the two. I know that now.”
--Robyn Hannaford from The Great Northern Coven "
" War changes everything. The world is never the same after a war. Any war. There are holes… missing parts… The best you can do is pick up the pieces that are left and start to build again. It’ll never be the way it was before.”
