It was LJ's quote, I believe ;)

So far, this is the funniest book in the series, IMHO. My fav bits are:
1. Claire nursering Hal, especially when she called him Harold, and he was like "Nobody called me like that since I was 3 years old", and Claire was like "Harold, now we are going to change your clothes, wash you and lull you to sleep" :lol:
2. LJ was in his prime form, even with the damaged eye. My fav scenes were: "Call me Bert" ( :rotfl: ) and his whole relationship with Germain was so adorable (John with kids, aww :<3: ), John singing German songs in the middle of the night, John wanting to kiss Smith's ear in the middle of escaping :lol: , John calling Claire "my dear" all the time and switching immediately to Mrs Fraser after Jamie's nasty remark, John saying that he wasn't squirming when Claire was operating on him, and many more...Lord John is a truly priceless man.
3. The scene when Fanny insists William to swear on his father's head and he is like "Which one?" :lol:
4. Claire discovering LJ's identity ("Jesus H. Roosevelt Christ!") :lol:
5. Mrs. Figg is a comedy gold too, I like especially her reaction to Hal and John polished up appearance in the wedding and the scene when she was regarding Jamie's kilt and when she flushed at the realization Claire answered simply "No, he is not" :lol:

I love everyone's suggestions! :agree: with all!

This family moment in 113 Thanks for All the Fish made me smile wryly.

Thee knows the joy of useful occupation, Claire, I expect.”
Jenny made a nondescript noise in her throat, and Marsali snorted briefly, though without rancor.
Indeed I do,” I said, my eyes on the slice of bread I was buttering. “And which would you rather find useful occupation in, Rachel—boiling laundry, or lancing the boils on Mr. Pinckney’s arse?

Loved Jenny's and Marsali's response and Claire's comeback (with clever alliteration).

I love how Claire seems to elude laundry duties! Though she is in post-op recovery here, so she deserves to, imo.
Those small spaces of time, too soon gone, when everything seems to stand still, and existence is balanced on a perfect point, like the moment of change between the dark and the light...Chapter 29, The Last Reason, Outlander

It may be wrong, but I am rekilting right now, and I get amused every time Jamie seems a bit jealous of Lord John and Claire. After years of Claire having to endure her own issues with Lord John's feelings for Jamie; now it's his turn. His jealousy is every bit as unwarranted as Claire's was, but it's still entertaining to read.

:agree: The tables have turned! I agree, it's very amusing.

The scene at Mc Ewan's cottage where Brianna whispers to Roger, "Do you know the word 'frottage'?" Roger says he does and asks if she wants to try it now. She replies, "I want to do less of it with a three-year-old."

There are so many funny moments in this book but for some reason one of my favorites is when LJ is calling Claire "my dear" when she's recovering from her gunshot wound and Jamie finally exclaims "Dinna be calling her that!" He sounds so petulant (which Jamie pretty much never is elsewhere) it just cracks me up. Jealousy will do that to a man, I suppose
