Eoin Colfer, The Time Paradox
“Artemis and Holly stood there in their underwear, gingerly locking fingers. They had crossed space and time together, weathered rebellions, and tangled with demented despots.

Eoin Colfer, The Time Paradox

“screens. “You’ll be off any second. Remember, try not to touch anything you don’t have to. Don’t talk to anyone. Don’t contact me in the past. I have no desire not to exist.” Artemis nodded. “I know. Make as little impact as possible, in case the time paradox theory has some merit.” Holly was impatient to get going. “Enough science.

Trust me, I’m ready. Now hold hands.” Artemis”
Eoin Colfer, The Time Paradox
“Probeer je te suggereren dat ik wel eens buiten mijn boekje ga?' vroeg Holly, die van het idee alleen blijkbaar al gruwelde.

Eoin Colfer, The Time Paradox
“Ja, dat begrijpen we,' zei Artemis. 'Hoe lang duurt het voor je de betovering geformuleerd hebt?'

'D'Arvit,' vloekte Holly.”
Eoin Colfer, The Time Paradox
