  • Duncan: Listen to this! "Roxanne's breath came in laboured gasps as he crushed his lips to hers. Her hands reached for his kilt, where they found..." Oh.
Amanda: Wait a minute! I didn't read that!
Duncan: Well, you know...
Amanda: (reads) Oh, so it's a little purple. (off his look) The prose, I mean.
  • Amanda: You think that's bad. She called me a cheap whore and a thief! I was never cheap.
