"The carriage, passing the open drains and mounds of rippedup roadway before the tenement houses, lurched round the corner and, swerving back to the tramtrack, rolled on noisily with chattering wheels. Mr Dedalus fell back, saying:
— Was that Mulligan cad with him? His fidus Achates!
— No, Mr Bloom said. He was alone." (U6.45)
