Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please Go Now! Change Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #1

Marvin K. Mooney, / will you / please go now! (13-15)

The Narrator is being very polite here. Anybody want to bet if that'll change?

Quote #2

If you like / you can go / in an old blue shoe. (31-33)

The drawing connected with these lines has Marvin K. Mooney smiling as he boots his way to… wherever it is he's going. It's a drastic change from the frown he wears in pictures with the Narrator's pointy finger.

Quote #3

Don't you know / the time has come / to go, Go, GO! (52-54)

The change in the Narrator's attitude is perfectly scaled with the way the go changes in intensity. Good and fun writing.
