Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please Go Now! Rules and Order Quotes

How we cite our quotes: (Line)

Quote #1

The / time / has come. (1-3)

The Narrator sets the rules for both Marvin and the reader. For Marvin, it's time to go. For the reader, it's time to do what he or she does best: read.

Quote #2

Just go. / Go. / GO! / I don't care how. (6-9)

The first and only order. Although the Narrator may not have more than one order to give, the intensity of said order is going to get cranked up to eleven real quick.

Quote #3

But / please go. / Please! (22-24)

Hmmm. So who's really in charge here? The Narrator may be giving the orders, but he might not have the power of choice. (Feel free to check out our "Choices" section in themes for more on this one.)
