"I bet you can tell I’m a woman," she said, "and I suspect the rest of the world can, too."

She said she was all too aware that if she was selected, she would represent several hundred male athletes in the N.B.A.; she would deal with league officials and agents who were nearly all men; she would negotiate with team owners who were almost all men; and she would stand before reporters who were predominantly men.

She did not flinch. “My past,” she told the room, “is littered with the bones of men who were foolish enough to think I was someone they could sleep on.”

Act my age?
What the fuck is that, “act my age”?
What do I care how old I am?
The Ocean is old as fuck.
It will still drown your ass with vigor.

"What, ah, wait— why are you," the Doctor frowns, tapping a console screen. "What are you doing?" He hears a muffled curse and looks up, catching Claudia fiddling with something on the other side of the console: "Oi! You! What did I say?"
"Aw, c’mon, Doc—"
"I said no touching! Artie told me all about what happens when you touch things, Miss Donovan."
Claudia scowls: “Okay, that makes it sound like I don’t do really awesome stuff when I tinker. And I do.” The Doctor circles the console, swatting her hand away. “Oh God, you’re just as much of an old fart as Artie, aren’t you? I thought you were gonna be fun.”
The Doctor pouts: “I’m fun.”
"Then teach me how to drive."
