Quote from Richard in We Got Us a Pippi Virgin
Richard: So, been reading anything good lately?
Rory: I'm very into P.G. Wodehouse right now.
Richard: Oh, that's great.
Richard: Actually, I've had a personal triumph of late.
Rory: Oh, yeah? What?
Richard: I've just finished the sixth and final volume of The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.
Rory: That is a triumph.
Richard: I started it in 1968. So it took only - what? - 36 years to finish it. But by God, I finished it.
