"She stood still, waiting, while the man, husband, brother, like her, searched his pockets for change." (U5.99)
"Stylish kind of coat with that roll collar, warm for a day like this, looks like blanketcloth. Careless stand of her with her hands in those patch pockets." (U5.101)
"Like that haughty creature at the polo match. Women all for caste till you touch the spot. Handsome is and handsome does. Reserved about to yield. The honourable Mrs" (U5.103)
"and Brutus is an honourable man." (U5.105)
"Possess her once take the starch out of her." (U5.106)
"- I was with Bob Doran, he's on one of his periodical bends, and what do you call him Bantam Lyons. Just down there in Conway's we were.
Doran, Lyons in Conway's. She raised a gloved hand to her hair. In came Hoppy. Having a wet. Drawing back his head and gazing far from beneath his veiled eyelids he saw the bright fawn skin shine in the glare, the braided drums." (U5.107)
"Clearly I can see today. Moisture about gives long sight perhaps. Talking of one thing or another. Lady's hand. Which side will she get up?
— And he said: Sad thing about our poor friend Paddy! What Paddy? I said.
Poor little Paddy Dignam, he said." (U5.112)

- Why? I said. What's wrong with him? I said.
Proud: rich: silk stockings.

- Yes, yes, Mr Bloom said after a dull sigh. Another gone.
- One of the best, M'Coy said." (U5.132)

What is home without
Plumtree's Potted Meat?
With it an abode of bliss."

"- My missus has just got an engagement. At least it's not settled yet.
Valise tack again. By the way no harm. I'm off that, thanks.
