    I honestly can't remember all the ones I might have, and there isn't a lot of feedback from others. Still, here's one. It works better with context, but there's a bit of an exchange where an intelligent T-Rex with a monocle and dictionary named "The Saurus" is fighting some supervillains.

    “Roadkill, are you still there, or are you, ya know, Roadkill?” I asked.

    He hurried out from behind a mailbox he’d hidden behind. “Momma said there’d be days like this.”

    “Your mother said this kind of stuff would happen to you?” I asked.

    “Momma did a lot of drugs,” he answered back.

    In From Winter's Ashes (www.fromwintersashes.com), the passage and interplay that made Keith and I laugh until we cried, was developing this resolution to one of the side-stories, wherein one of our protagonists had earlier taken a Seeker crossbow bolt (a magical homing arrow) to the hip, covering for his partner:

    “Exactly how, m’Lord, did you get free in time?” Sienna asked, coolly.

    Corbin held up the steel belt from the palette of bolts they’d taken shelter behind. The belt had been sheared messily, scorch marks and anodization showing where electricity had hastily cut through the metal. The rudimentary teleportation rune swung on the end of it, still glowing with charge from Corbin’s use. “It was just a matter of lighting it up, Consul, and knowing where to go.”

    “And how did you know that?”

    He gestured to the seeker bolt protruding from his hip. “Why as you can see, my dear Consul, my hips led me right back to you!”

    Sienna’s mouth worked, as if unsure to pucker around a bitter seed or burst into laughter. Then she stilled her lips, eyes flashing mischief, and stepped around him. “Oh, that does look painful, Lord Goldbrace. Does it wiggle in your wound if I move over here? How about over there?”

    “Yes! Yes it does thank you very much Consul. Now will you kindly help me quell the rune on it before I bleed to death?”
