The "large and startling" phrase is from Flannery O'Connor—

From Georgia College, Milledgeville, GA

… in Flannery O'Connor's essay "The Fiction Writer and His Country"… she explains why she writes the way she does: "When you can assume that your audience holds the same beliefs you do, you can relax a little and use more normal means of talking to it; when you have to assume that it does not, then you have to make your vision apparent by shock— to the hard of hearing you shout, and for the almost-blind you draw large and startling figures" (Mystery and Manners , p. 34).

For a large and startling figure played by Askew, see a scene from "Big Love."
