Example:

Gravitys Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon:

Thomas Pynchon: A screaming thing comes across the sky. It's a V-2 rocket carrying twelve thousand pounds of symbolism, and it's coming down on your poor, deluded, postmodern head.

THE END

:smile:

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

George: Lennie, this is our big chance. Don't be stupid.
Lennie: I love petting purdy things.
(Lennie kills stuff by accident. George shoots his dog.)

THE END

:smile:

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

Ebenezer Scrooge: Bah, humbug. You'll work thirty-eight hours on Christmas Day, keep the heat at five degrees, and like it.
Ghost of Jacob Marley: Ebenezer Scrooge, three ghosts of Christmas will come and tell you you're mean.
Three Ghosts of Christmas: You're mean.
Ebenezer Scrooge:At last, I have seen the light. Let's dance in the streets. Have some money.

THE END

I wish I had time to read more, this is my only way.

The Old Man and the Sea
By Ernest Hemmingway

Old Man: I can't catch any fish. Wow, I caught a big fish! Shit, the sharks ate it. Oh well.

Did you ever hear the one about the young writier who wanted to be just like Hemmingway? He was going to write the Great American Novel and then kill himself, but he couldn't write worth a damn so he just killed himself.
