I’ll kick anyone’s ass. I’ll kick your ass. I’ll kick your dog’s ass. I’ll kick my own ass.

Gavroche, Book XV

You look like I could use some company.

Marius to a random passerby, Book V

Slowing down is not really my jam.

Enjolras, Book IV

I came out here to have a good time and I’m honestly feeling so attacked right now.

Enjolras, Book XI

He’s like a purple nurple if it were a person; awkward, painful to watch, and a bit arousing.

Courfeyrac about Marius, Book VII

I’m going to stare at him until he feels so uncomfortable he has to talk to me.

Éponine about Marius, Book XV

I just ate one of your highlighters. I’m sorry. I was nervous.

Marius Pontmercy, Book III

Yeah, I’ve always been a bit of an outdoorsman. When I was a kid my Grandfather used to make me hang out in the backyard a lot, and I’d just run around until I got tired.

Grantaire, Book XI
