"Mr Kernan, pleased with the order he had booked, walked boldly along James's street." (U10.673)

"— I know you did, Dilly answered. Were you in the Scotch house now?
— 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.
He left her and walked on. Dilly followed quickly and pulled his coat.
— Well, what is it? he said, stopping." (U8.675)
"The lacquey rang his bell behind their backs.
— Barang!
— Curse your bloody blatant soul, Mr Dedalus cried, turning on him.
The lacquey, aware of comment, shook the lolling clapper of his bell but feebly:
— Bang!
Mr Dedalus stared at him.
— Watch him, he said. It's instructive. I wonder will he allow us to talk.
— You got more than that, father, Dilly said.
— I'm going to show you a little trick, Mr Dedalus said. I'll leave you all where Jesus left the jews. Look, there's all I have. I got two shillings from Jack Power and I spent twopence for a shave for the funeral.
He drew forth a handful of copper coins, nervously." (U10.688)
"- Can't you look for some money somewhere? Dilly said.
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)
"- Here, Mr Dedalus said, handing her two pennies. Get a glass of milk for yourself and a bun or a something. I'll be home shortly.
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)
"Mr Dedalus amid the din walked off, murmuring to himself with a pursing mincing mouth:
- 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)

"From the sundial towards James's Gate walked Mr Kernan," (U10.718)

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.
"pleased with the order he had booked for Pulbrook Robertson, boldly along James's street, past Shackleton's offices. Got round him all right. How do you do, Mr Crimmins? First rate, sir. I was afraid you might be up in your other establishment in Pimlico. How are things going? Just keeping alive.
Lovely weather we 're having. Yes, indeed. Good for the country. Those farmers are always grumbling." (U10.718)
"I'll just take a thimbleful of your best gin, Mr Crimmins. A small gin, sir. Yes, sir." (U10.724)
"Terrible affair that General Slocum explosion. Terrible, terrible!" (U10.725)
"A thousand casualties." (U10.726)
"And heartrending scenes. Men trampling down women and children. Most brutal thing." (U10.727)
"What do they say was the cause? Spontaneous combustion: most scandalous revelation." (U10.727)
"Not a single lifeboat would float and the firehose all burst." (U10.729)
"What I can't understand is how the inspectors ever allowed a boat like that... Now you're talking straight, Mr Crimmins. You know why? Palmoil. Is that a fact? Without a doubt. Well now, look at that." (U10.729)
