I laughed when Peris said:
"Oh dear, wasn't this party white tie?"
at the beginning of Uglies.
Did no one else find this funny?

My faves:

We're not freaks Tally. WE'RE normal. We may not be gorgeous, but at least we're not hyped-up Barbie dolls.
~Shay-la, Uglies

"I thought that food of the gods would be... better, somehow.
"Hey, this is DEHYDRATED food of the gods, okay?"
~Andrew-la and Tally-wa, Pretties

"Hi, Ping-la!"
~Tally-wa, Specials

"My name is Aya Fuse."
"No kidding. Every feed in this city seems to know you. And STOP BOWING!"
~Aya-la and Tally-wa, Extras

"So let's get this straight, Aya-chan. You want me, a person who can't lie, to lie about he fact that I can't lie?"
~Frizz-la, Extras

love those

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Yep. Along with "All that glitters is not hovery."
And the roller coaster argument.
"Why didn't you tell me?
"More fun that way."
Or something like that. I can't remember exactly.

"I don't want to lose you again."
"you already have."
~Peris and Tally, Pretties.
That was kind of sad-making for Peris...

What about:
"I'm glad that was in Japanese, Aya-la. Because it didn't sound too respectful."
~Tally, Extras
That made me ROFL.

I don't recognize any of these Extras quotes. I didn't like it much, so I haven't read it in a while.

I thought it went off the rest of the topic and I really thought the books were better from Tally's pov.
