Dilly shrugged her shoulders. Mr Dedalus placed his hands on them and held them back.
- Stand up straight, girl, he said. You'll get curvature of the spine. Do you know what you look like?" (U10.657)
- Where would I get money? Mr Dedalus said. There is no-one in Dublin would lend me fourpence.
- You got some, Dilly said, looking in his eyes.
- How do you know that? Mr Dedalus asked, his tongue in his cheek." (U10.668)
- I was not then, Mr Dedalus said, smiling. Was it the little nuns taught you to be so saucy? Here.
He handed her a shilling.
- See if you can do anything with that, he said.
- I suppose you got five, Dilly said. Give me more than that.
- Wait awhile, Mr Dedalus said threateningly. You're like the rest of them, are you? An insolent pack of little bitches since your poor mother died. But wait awhile. You'll all get a short shrift and a long day from me. Low blackguardism! I'm going to get rid of you. Wouldn't care if I was stretched out stiff. He's dead. The man upstairs is dead." (U8.675)
Mr Dedalus thought and nodded.
- I will, he said gravely. I looked all along the gutter in O'Connell street. I'll try this one now.
- You're very funny, Dilly said, grinning." (U10.701)
He put the other coins in his pocket and started to walk on.
The viceregal cavalcade passed, greeted by obsequious policemen, out of Parkgate.
- I'm sure you have another shilling, Dilly said.
The lacquey banged loudly." (U10.706)
- The little nuns! Nice little things! O, sure they wouldn't do anything! O, sure they wouldn't really! Is it little sister Monica!" (U10.713)
St. James's Gate is the Guinness brewery, leased in 1759 by Arthur Guinness for 9,000 years at £45 per year. It became the largest brewery in Ireland in 1838, and was the largest in the world in 1914. During the 19c. and early 20c., Guinness owned most of the buildings in the surrounding area, including many streets of offices, or housing for employees. The brewery had its own power plant. Although no longer the largest brewery overall, it still is the largest brewery of stout in the world.
