„I was expelled [from school]. It's a long story but once I was caught appearing on The Word and all the girls in the common room started shouting, 'Sir! Look sir, it's Sienna!'

„There's alot of things I want, a lot of things that I'd like to be.
But girl, I don't foresee a rags-to-riches story for me.
There's just one little dream I've got to come true;
There's just one round I've gotta win,
I can't be a loser with you.
Baby, baby, once in my life, let me get what I want,
Girl, don't let me down!
Just once in my life, let me hold on to one good thing I found!“

'My shirt,' Parker said. 'Haw.'
'Haw, haw,' the girl said politely.“

„GG Allin: I got to tell you one thing that is really bothering me. I went to prison for two years for what I did to a girl and she did the same thing to me but because she was a girl they let her of and put me in prison because she was the weaker sex. Now if women want equal rights they got to do equal time. Ok, I cut her, I burned her, I drank her blood but she also did the same to me. It was consexual agreement but in the courtroom they said that I was to blame because I'm GG Allin, I'm the king of the underground. They need to nail me to a cross.“

I've been a wicked girl." said I;

"What are those?"
"What are soldiers?"

The girl held still and studied.

"Yes, what is it you know?"“
