1. She's always late. In fact, her ancestors arrived on the "June flower."
2. You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say will be misquoted and used against you.
3. I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
4. Honk if you love peace and quiet.
5. Pardon my driving, I'm reloading.
6. It is hard to understand how a cemetery can raise its burial costs and blame it on the higher cost of living.
7. It is said that if you line up all the cars in the world end to end, someone would be stupid enough to try to pass them.
8. You can't have everything. Where would you put it?
