Quote by Edward Burns
Well, for one thing, you know my dad was a cop.
This quote implies that the speaker's father being a cop is relevant to the discussion. It suggests that having a parent in law enforcement potentially influences the speaker's perspective or knowledge on a particular subject. This statement may indicate that the speaker has personal experiences, insights, or access to information that are shaped by their father's profession.
The weather being hot, he had no cravat, and wore his shirt collar wide open; so that every time he spoke something was seen to twitch and jerk up in his throat, like the little hammers in a harpsichord when the notes are struck. Perhaps it was the Truth feebly endeavouring to leap to his lips. If so, it never reached them.
