It's been many, many years since I last read Treasure Island (I've read it more than once), but I seem to remember that it was the parrot who kept repeating "Pieces of eight, pieces of eight!"
"It is required of every man that the spirit within him should walk abroad among his fellow-men, and travel far and wide."--Charles Dickens.

I voted the same as Jeff, because of the repetitive nature of the quote.  Most people don't repeat that way.


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!
