“How’s tricks?” — Cop in “Impulse” (1990).
(See a Log24 search for that word.)

That line of dialogue is in memory of a woman who reportedly
died in Bellingham, Washington, on January 11, 2021.

Notes for Katz, the Musical

Filed under: General — Tags: , — m759 @ 2:29 PM

From a memoir published in 1997 —

The author and his friend Katz :

I couldn’t believe it.

— ‘You want to come with me?’

— ‘If it’s a problem, I understand.’

— ‘No,’ I said. ‘No, no, no.
You’re very welcome.
You are extremely  welcome.’ “

A Walk in the Woods , by Bill Bryson.
(Crown, Kindle edition. p. 20.)

From a novel published in 1971 —

“In the bluish light emanating from the TV,
EE looked at him, her eyes veiled. ‘You want me
to come while you watch.’ Chance said nothing.
. . . .

‘I think I understand now.’ She got up,
paced swiftly up and down the room,
crossing in front of the TV screen;
every now and then a word escaped her lips,
a word scarcely louder than her breath.”

Being There , by Jerzy Kosinski
