“Don’t know? You’re supposed to be a psychic, right?
“Boy, you see me sawing some bony tramp in half? You think I’m a magician? I may be able to read thoughts and sense energies in a room, but I can’t just pull facts out of thin air.”

I’ve been working, from time to time, on a book of quotations for many years. I call it, “The Mind Boggles”, from one of my favorite quotations. I do source quotations a bit differently from a lot of people. In the case of a work of a fiction, I consider that the character said the line…not the author. As a bit of an author myself (in a minor way), I can tell you…my characters definitely say things that I would never say. These are all quotations that I’ve collected myself: I’ve read the book, seen the TV episode, and so on.
Hope you enjoy them!
