"Mr. James Harthouse passed a whole night and a day in a state if so much hurry, that the world with its best glass eye (monocle), would scarcely have recongised him during that insane interval (181). "
"...he rang the bell, and tossing himself negligently on a sofa, ordered 'some dinner at six-with beefsteak in it,' and got through the intervening time as well as he could (183)."
The waiter informs Mr. Harthouse a young woman is here "...he had never seen stood there. Plainly dressed, very quiet, very pretty. As he conducted her into the room and placed a chair for her...(183)."
"Keep my visit secret...you may be sure, sir, you will never see her again as long as you live (184)."
"I am not a moral sort of fellow...and I never make any pretensions to the character of a moral sort of fellow. I am immoral as need be. At the same time...I have no particular evil intentions, but have glided on from one step to another with a smoothness so perfectly diabolical...(186)."
"It had no effect on Sissy, fact or no fact...somehow he felt as if he were the whelp tonight (187)".
"But do you know...the extent of what you ask? You probably are not aware that I am here on a public kind of business (187)".
"He had left the tall chimneys of Coketown behind, and was ina railway carriage, tering and glaring over the dark landscape ...a secret sense of having failed and been ridiculous...made him ashamed of himself (188)."
