"… Going from ‘oyster sauce’ to ‘cute girl’ is just about the strangest feat of linguistic acrobatics I’ve ever come across. And, I’m from the city that gave the world Cockney rhyming slang."
"But, this is a common thing in France, perhaps? Yes, it must be. I’m sure you have -loads- of adooooorable nicknames for the other soldiers. Under your command. Captain.”
