It was a blonde. A blonde to make a bishop kick a hole in a stained-glass window.

I caught the blackjack right behind my ear. A black pool opened up at my feet. I dived in. It had no bottom. I felt pretty good - like an amputated leg.

She was a charming middle-aged lady with a face like a bucket of mud. I gave her a drink. She was a gal who'd take a drink, if she had to knock you down to get the bottle.

He died in 1940, in the middle of a glass of beer. His wife Jessie finished it for him.

The girl gave him a look which ought to have stuck at least four inches out of his back.

She gave me a smile I could feel in my hip pocket.

You talk too damn much and too damn much of it is about you.

She lowered her lashes until they almost cuddled her cheeks and slowly raised them again, like a theatre curtain. I was to get to know that trick. That was supposed to make me roll over on my back with all four paws in the air.

I'm an occasional drinker, the kind of guy who goes out for a beer and wakes up in Singapore with a full beard.

suziequzie: fusillade762: I never really thought of Sherlock Holmes as "hard-boiled". Is this an English food reference or something?

If Holmes is considered 'hard boiled', where's Archie Goodwin on the scale?

Somebody called?
