Not exactly a quote, but a neat old English poem:

T'was the fifteenth of November, a night I well remember.
I was walking up and down in drunken pride.
When my knees began to flutter, I sank down in the gutter
And a pig came up and lay down by my side.
As I lay there in the gutter, thinking thoughts cannot utter
I thought I heard a passing lady say,
"You can tell a man who boozes by the company he chooses."
And with that the pig got up and slowly walked away.

Okay, so we probably only need another week to get the house emptied. Two more, tops!

Yes, I'm a nurse.

No. I don't want to see it.

Leave it alone, it'll probably go away.
