“The day before the wedding, Paul and Julia were in a head-on collision with a runaway truck… The next day, they were married anyway. A picture from the happy day shows Paul leaning on a cane and Julia looking slim and feminine in a short-sleeved suit…. The dinner roll-size wad of gauze taped to her temple does nothing to detract from her serenity and happiness.”
“Richard wrote a mental diary in his head.
Dear Diary, he began. On Friday I had a job, a fiance, a home, and a life that made sense. (Well, as much as an life makes sense). Then I found an injured girl bleeding on the pavement and I tried to be Good Samaritan. Now I’ve got no fiance, no home, no job, and I’m walking around a couple of hundred feet under the streets of London with the projected life expectancy of a suicidal fruit fly.”
“I know in the spy movies it always looks really cool when the operative goes from a maid’s uniform to a slinky, sexy, ballgown in the amount of time it takes an elevator to climb three floors. Well, I don’t know how it is for TV spies, but I can tell you that even with Velcro, the art of the quick change is one that must take a lot of practice (not to mention better lighting than one is likely to find in a tunnel that was once part of the underground railroad).”
