PGW's Most Delightful Sentences

Post 1


I wonder if the readers of this part of the site have their favorite sentences used by PGW in his books. I had and have many but it would be great to put together a collection.

Here is one of my favorites: If I remember this correctly, Bertie Wooster, on being asked a threatening question, probably by Roderick Spode or Aunt Agatha, wanting to duck the questions, responds:

"I don't know, you know, don't you know?"!!!

The first time I read this, it took me a second to get it - but after that, I could not stop laughing OR admiring the genius of that sentence formation! smiley - biggrin
