How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

See. I'm floating, floating above the pain. Just remember what I told you. It's important. Otherwise, they murder you." (38.19)

This is what Jerry wants to tell The Goober but he can't. We aren't sure if this is because he's passed out, or because he can't voice the words. Either way, it's a grim sentiment, which we hope Jerry revises in the future. Do you think this is really the message the that Cormier wants to tell us?
