1. "You know why I've always liked your mouth, Rhubarb?" he asked in that whispery voice again, but it was twice as intimate as before. He let go of his prizes and reached up his free hand to rub his thumb over the bottom edge of her lip. Those shivers started again. "Even when you're calling me names, it's the perfect shape for kissing.""There's no shape for kissing." She wasn't quite sure how the words came out. Her brain was completely disconnected and so her mouth had to be on auto-pilot. Which explained why it didn't do anything when his eyes closed and his lips descended to hers."

2. "Hey, Rhubarb, we may need to rethink our approach.""No, we don't.""I've only got one hand here, kiddo. Maybe if I grab the middle-""If you grab the middle, it'll be the last thing that hand ever does!"He pondered that as if it explained something. "So I'm guessing then you don't get a lot of company down here.""Bobby, so help me, I will rip your arm off and beat you with it, do you hear me?""Okay, geez. Let me just get a look—" He picked her skirt up and pulled it over his head."Bobby!" She was actually too mortified to even scream so it came out like a squeak from a dying rat."Dammit, there's no light under here, can't see a thing."Thank God for small blessings. "Get out of there!""Tell you what, how about you use your spare hand and I use mine on either side of your hips and we yank together."

You are the slime that grows in swamps that even acid can't break down—""How long do you plan to keep this up, Rhubarb?""Why?""Because I was going to hail down a bottle of beer and I figured you might get thirsty having your mouth open so much.""Make it a white wine and I'll keep it short.""No, you won't, but it might slow you down. Be right back."

5. "To-day I thinkOnly with scents, - scents dead leaves yield,And bracken, and wild carrot's seed,And the square mustard field;Odours that riseWhen the spade wounds the root of tree,Rose, currant, raspberry, or goutweed,Rhubarb or celery;The smoke's smell, too,Flowing from where a bonfire burnsThe dead, the waste, the dangerous,And all to sweetness turns.It is enoughTo smell, to crumble the dark earth,While the robin sings over againSad songs of Autumn mirth."- A poem called DIGGING."
Author: Edward Thomas

11. "Although the noise of the chattering clientele is much more significant than the topics of their chatter, it does finally constitute that type of social and indistinct expression that we refer to as rhubarb. The very particular volume in which people tell each other their news seems to generate all by itself that acoustic chiaroscuro, a sounding murk, in which every communication seems to lose its edges, truth projects the shadow of a lie, and a statement seems to resemble its opposite."
Author: Joseph Roth
12. "So much for the famous 'Hoosier hospitality.' When we moved to our new house, no one stopped by with strawberry rhubarb pie or warm wishes. Our neighbors must have taken one look at David and Jerome and locked their doors - and minds - against us"

Author: Suzanne Collins
14. "Peeta crouches down on the other side of her and strokes her hair. When he begins to speak in a soft voice, it seems almost nonsensical, but the words aren't for me.
