“Padraic kisses her at length, the cat awkward in one hand.” Evelyn to Adam: “Jenny was just saying that she thinks you’re great… she thinks you’re just about perfect now.” The bit where Evelyn grabs Adam’s face, shows it to Jenny, he pulls away “a bit too quickly” and says “do you guys wanna salad or something?” Padraic: “Come on in ahead of yourselves. I’m just in the middle of shooting me dad.” Mairead appears… clutching the body of the bloody and black Sir Roger to her chest.” Donny: “Have I congratulated you on your engagement yet, son?” Reaction to Evelyn’s speech in Pantsguys production: Adam sunk lower and lower in his chair, whilst Jenny raised her hands to her mouth and looked at Adam in concern, then got up and left. Phillip got up and left soon after. Also, all three characters actually sat in the audience – this emphasised the fact that the audience should be as shocked as they were at this social trespass. Evelyn to Adam and Jenny: “I just wanna talk about the kiss. Why can’t we do that?” “the moment hangs. Jenny stops short.” Evelyn to Jenny (Pantsguys): “Jenny, you… hungry?” Massive sexual double entendre Taboo topics (eg death, sex etc) Evelyn to Jenny: “Does a penis excite you? I mean, just any ol’ penis? How about you, Jenny, did you like what you saw? Did it get you hot?” Phillip to Adam: “Yes it is… it’s very funny.” Pantsguys production: long pause “I mean, it’s not that funny that wives get beat up, but the fact that you look like one, that I find hilarious…” Donny: “Many a time I did trample on me mam…after she died I stopped. There seemed no sense in it.” Padraic to James: “If you concentrated exclusively on Protestants, I’d say all well and good, but you don’t.” “See, they objected to his ‘thing’. The shape of it. Said it was too life-like.” Adam: “He’s not really supposed to have one of those, is he?” Evelyn: “No, and I don’t know why… we’re always calling him ‘the creator’.” “[Mam] said good luck and try not to go blowing up kids.” Reference to the deaths of two toddlers, aged 2 and 3, who were killed by an IRA bomb in 1993.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
