"And lo, there entered one of the clan of the O'Molloy's, a comely hero of white face yet withal somewhat ruddy, his majesty's counsel learned in the law, and with him the prince and heir of the noble line of Lambert." (U12.1008)
"— Hello, Ned.
— Hello, Alf.
— Hello, Jack.
— Hello, Joe.
— God save you, says the citizen.
— Save you kindly, says J. J. What'll it be, Ned?
— Half one, says Ned." (U12.1011)
"So J. J. ordered the drinks.
— Were you round at the court? says Joe.
— Yes, says J. J. He'll square that, Ned, says he.
— Hope so, says Ned.
Now what were those two at? J. J. getting him off the grand jury list and the other give him a leg over the stile. With his name in Stubbs's." (U12.1018)
"Playing cards, hobnobbing with flash toffs with a swank glass in their eye, adrinking fizz and he half smothered in writs and garnishee orders." (U12.1024)
"Pawning his gold watch in Cummins of Francis street where no-one would know him in the private office when I was there with Pisser releasing his boots out of the pop." (U12.1026)
"What's your name, sir? Dunne, says he. Ay, and done says I. Gob, ye'll come home by weeping cross one of those days, I'm thinking.
— Did you see that bloody lunatic Breen round there? says Alf. U. p: up.
— Yes, says J. J. Looking for a private detective." (U12.1028)
"— Ay, says Ned. And he wanted right go wrong to address the court only Corny Kelleher got round him telling him to get the [calligraphy] handwriting examined first.
— Ten thousand pounds, says Alf, laughing. God, I'd give anything to hear him before a judge and jury.
— Was it you did it, Alf? says Joe." (U12.1033)
"— Compos your eye! says Alf, laughing. Do you know that he's balmy?
Look at his head. Do you know that some mornings he has to get his hat on with a shoehorn.
—Yes, says J. J., but the truth of a libel is no defence to an indictment for publishing it in the eyes of the law.
— Ha ha, Alf, says Joe.
— Still, says Bloom, on account of the poor woman, I mean his wife.
— Pity about her, says the citizen. Or any other woman marries a half and half." (U12.1045)
"- How half and half? says Bloom. Do you mean he...
- Half and half I mean, says the citizen. A fellow that's neither fish nor flesh.

"Picture of him on the wall with his Smashall Sweeney's moustaches, the signior Brini from Summerhill, the eyetallyano, papal Zouave to the Holy Father, has left the quay and gone to Moss street. And who was he, tell us? A nobody, two pair back and passages, at seven shillings a week," (U12.1065)

The original 'Zouaves' were an infantry corps in the French army, created in Algeria in 1831, and formally recognised by a Royal decree in 1833. Their uniform was an 'oriental' dress with a fez, braided blue jackets with waistcoats, and voluminous red trousers. The name 'zouave' was later used for armies that imitated their attire.
The Papal Zouaves ('Zuavi Pontifici') were a volunteer unit formed in 1860 by Lamoricière (shown here) to help protect the papal states, during Pope Pius IX's struggle against the Italian Risorgimento. They had to be young men, unmarried and Roman Catholic. They were of diverse origins, the Dutch being the largest group. They were disbanded in 1870.
The papal zouave uniform was grey with red trim, and did not include breastplates.
"and he covered with all kinds of breastplates bidding defiance to the world." (U12.1069)

Breastplates, on the other hand, are part of the uniform of the Swiss Guards, a corps of papal bodyguards. Swiss Guards have to be Swiss, 19-30 year old, over 174cm (5'8) tall, unmarried, and Roman Catholic of irreproachable character. They complete rigorous entrance requirements and Swiss army training. The papal Swiss Guard tradition was instituted in the 1500s, making it the oldest, continually active military corps in history. In view of the citizenship requirement, signior Brini could not have been a Swiss Guard.
"— And moreover, says J. J., a postcard is publication. It was held to be sufficient evidence of malice in the testcase Sadgrove v. Hole. In my opinion an action might lie.
Six and eightpence, please. Who wants your opinion?" (U12.1071)
"Let us drink our pints in peace. Gob, we won't be let even do that much itself.
— Well, good health, Jack, says Ned.
— Good health, Ned, says J. ].
— There he is again, says Joe.
— Where? says Alf.
And begob there he was passing the door with his books under his oxter and the wife beside him and Corny Kelleher with his wall eye looking in as they went past, talking to him like a father, trying to sell him a secondhand coffin." (U12.1074)
