‘Mr Darkwater, I have searched the house from chimney to cellar for the last four years. There is not a cobweb of this horrible house that I have not mapped. I simply do not know where the clock or whatever it is could be hidden.’
‘You do not, but the child Silver must know.’
‘What on earth does she know? On Mondays she is simple, on Tuesdays she is stupid, on Wednesdays she is stubborn. On Thursday she is silly, on Fridays she is silent, on Saturdays she is SO cross, and on Sundays she is sullen. Don’t you think I’ve quizzed her day and night since the moment I arrived?’
‘Perhaps you ask the wrong question, Mrs Rokabye.’

– Tanglewreck, Jeanette Winterson
