I just so happen to love playing this. And it doesn’t really work out to well with my siblings at the dinner table (we’re always sidetracking and quoting out of turn. Esigh.) So, if the moderators allow this, and we get to playing it–what fun!
It kind of runs like this…
FIRST PERSON POSTS: “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.” — Albert Einstein
SECOND PERSON POSTS: “This man has insulted me!” — Syme, G. K. Chesterton, The Man Who Was Thursday
THIRD PERSON POSTS: “That raises a terrible question.” — C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
Got that? Just follow the third persons lead.
Do you mean that we should only quote in third person? Or all three? All three might be a bit difficult!
Hrm? No, it just means that you should post any quote to answer the third person’s quote. ^^

“…To the delight of the poetic little gutter boys in the little grey streets.” — G. K. Chesterton, The Singular Speculation of the House Agent
“The world is quiet here.” ~~~Characters in the SoUE

What exactly does that mean?
I shall counter that Shakespeare with yet another Shakespeare:

“That is ridiculous,” she said.
