To the devil which hath made glad my young days.
FATHER MALACHI O'FLYNN
(takes from the chalice and elevates a blooddripping host) Corpus meum.
THE REVEREND MR HAINES LOVE
(raises high behind the celebrant's petticoat, revealing his grey bare hairy buttocks between which a carrot is stuck) My body."
Htengier Tnetopinmo Dog Drol eht rof, Aiulella!
(From on high the voice of Adonai calls.)
(with ferocious articulation) I'll do him in, so help me fucking Christ! I'll wring the bastard fucker's bleeding blasted fucking windpipe!"
(runs to Lynch) Can't you get him away?
He likes dialectic, the universal language. Kitty! (to Bloom) Get him away, you. He won't listen to me.
(He drags Kitty away.)"
(runs to Stephen) Come along with me now before worse happens. Here's your stick.
Stick, no. Reason. This feast of pure reason.
OLD GUMMY GRANNY
(thrusts a dagger towards Stephen's hand) Remove him, acushla. At 8.35 a.m. you will be in heaven and Ireland will be free. (she prays) O good God, take him!" (U15.4730)
(pulling Private Carr) Come on, you're boosed. He insulted me but I forgive him. (shouting in his ear) I forgive him for insulting me.
(over Stephen's shoulder) Yes, go. You see he's incapable."
(Breaks loose.) I'll insult him.
(He rushes towards Stephen, fists outstretched, and strikes him in the face. Stephen totters, collapses, falls, stunned. He lies prone, his face to the sky, his hat rolling to the wall. Bloom follows and picks it up.)"
(barking furiously) Ute ute ute ute ute ute ute ute.
Let him up! Don't strike him when he's down! Air! Who? The soldier hit him. He's a professor. Is he hurted? Don't manhandle him! He's fainted!
What call had the redcoat to strike the gentleman and he under the influence."
Listen to who's talking! Hasn't the soldier a right to go with his girl? He gave him the coward's blow.
(They grab at each other's hair, claw at each other and spit.)"
(barking) Wow wow wow.
(shoves them back, loudly) Get back, stand back!
(tugging his comrade) Here. Bugger off, Harry. Here's the cops!"
What's wrong here?
We were with this lady. And he insulted us. And assaulted my chum."
(lurches towards the watch) He insulted my lady friend.
(angrily) You hit him without provocation. I'm a witness. Constable, take his regimental number.
I don't want your instructions in the discharge of my duty.
(pulling his comrade) Here, bugger off Harry."
(staggering as he is pulled away) God fuck old Bennett. He's a whitearsed bugger. I don't give a shit for him."
