Yet he takes that black suitcase where his master wants. He puts it down where he is meant to, and never touches a rupee.

No. It's because 99.9 percent of us are caught in the Rooster Coop just like those poor guys in the poultry market."

22. "As a leftover sixties liberal, I believe that the long arm and beady eyes of the government have no place in our bedrooms, our kitchens, or the backseats of our parked cars. But I also feel that the immediate appointment of a Special Pastry Prosecutor would do much more good than harm. We know the free market has totally failed when 89 percent of all the tart pastry, chocolate-chip cookies, and tuiles in America are far less delicious than they would be if bakers simply followed a few readily available recipes. What we need is a system of graduated fines and perhaps short jail sentences to discourage the production of totally depressing baked goods. Maybe a period of unpleasant and tedious community service could be substituted for jail time."

They will stare at anything female and naked."

They're too erratic for a public heist."Ben thumped the steering wheel in frustration. "Maybe for you."I glowered at Ben from the backseat. I'd given Hi shotgun, having sensed this argument was inevitable. I didn't want to be close. The urge to slap might become overpowering."Why don't we all use our friendly words?" Hi suggested. "Let's take five, and everyone can say something we like about each other. I'll start. Shelton, you're super at——""Shut up, Hi!" Ben and I shouted, the first thing we'd agreed upon all morning."
Author: Kathy Reichs
26. "Echo, I can't tell you what's going to happen because I don't know. I don't hold hands in the halway or sit at anyone else's lunch table. But I swear …on my brothers that you'll never be a joke to me and you'll be much more than a girl in the backseat of my car."

"I'm your ride," he replied and then we were off and I barely got a chance to wave at Ned and Betty who were both standing outside my room. "Whose SUV is this?" I asked once we were out of Carnal. "Mine," he answered. I looked at him. "You drive a Harley." "Not big on puttin' bad guys on the back of my bike when I hunt them down, Ace. Fucks with my street cred."
Author: Kristen Ashley

Author: Lee Smolin
32. "Can't you do something for her?" his nephew finally asked, when several moments passed and her screaming anddidn't stop. "I already have. I didn't kill her," Lucian said dryly, then added, "Slow down. You're as bad as taxi drivers." "And you're a backseat driver," Thomas muttered, then cursed under his breath. "Surely there are some drugs or something we could give her to settle her down?" Lucian glanced at him with interest. "Do you have any?" Thomas blinked. "No." "Hmm." He sat back in his seat. "Neither do I." Thomas stared for a moment, glanced back at the woman in the back of the car, then said, "Her screaming is rather loud, don't you think? Just a bit distracting for those of us trying to concentrate." "Yes, it is," Lucian agreed, and reached into his pocket for his earplugs. He popped them into his ears and closed his eyes, the shrieking in the car considerably muffled. He'd have killed the woman before the plane had landed without the earplugs. They were a blessing."
Author: Lynsay Sands
33. "What, you didn't pack your lunch?" Ty asked sarcastically as he shifted around in the seat and wedged himself against the door. He kicked a foot up and propped it on the console between the two front seats. "Sure, in my SpongeBob SquarePants lunch box. I have the thermos, too," Morrison shot right back. Zane kept his mouth shut, eyes moving between the two men, and occasionally back to the driver, who was casually paying attention. Ty stared at the kid and narrowed his eyes further. "Spongewhat?" he asked flatly. Zane didn't even try to hold back the chuckle when Morrison looked at Ty like he'd lost his mind. "Spongewha … you're yanking my chain, aren't you?" Morrison said. "Henny, he's yanking my chain." "Yeah, well, that's what you getting for waving it in his face," the driver answered reasonably. "What the hell is a SpongeBob?" Ty asked Zane quietly in the backseat."
Author: Madeleine Urban
34. "I gave her a look. "Rachel.""Grace, you have to admit this is pretty weird. Say it. You disappearing from the hospital and Olivia is — and Sam suddenly shows up with you and, well, the freaky hallucinogenic mushrooms are looking more and more realistic, especially when you start talking about wolves. Because next step is for Isabel Culpeper to show up saying that everybody's going to be abducted by aliens and I have to tell you,I can't take that in my fragile emotional state. I think that —"I sighed. "Rachel.""Fine," she said. She threw her bag in the backseat and climbed in after."

35. "But like he said, it was clean, and it was very, very cool.I told him so.He beamed. Then ordered, "Seat belt!" as he stowed our bags in the backseat. I was trying. I'd already scanned the duct-tape-patched roof in vain. The clip was where I expected it to be, next to my left hip on the bench seat.Not so the other half. "Oh,yeah.I forgot to mention it's a lap belt."He reached over me, his arm brushing against my chest, his hair just grazing my cheekbone as he pulled the belt from the crevive between the seat and the door. I caught my breath. And jumped a little when he shoved the pieces together with a loud click."Old parts," he apologized.Quivery parts,I thought as my insides settled.Kinda."
Author: Melissa Jensen
36. "I reached between the seats to the backseat, where her purse was on the floor. It was the size of a grocery bag and it weighed a ton."What the hell do you have in this thing?""Everything."I didn't ask for further explanation.

"Is it like some sort of ninja trick?"Niten shot Josh a warning look. "Whatever you do, don't mention-"It was too late. In the backseat Aoife stirred. "Ninjas," she spat. "Why is everyone so obsessed with ninjas? They were never that good. And they were cowards, sneaking around in their black pajamas, stabbing their victims with poisoned darts. I hate ninjas-they have no honor."
Author: Michael Scott
38. "Making a FistFor the first time, on the road north of Tampico,I felt the life sliding out of me,a drum in the desert, harder and harder to hear.I was seven, I lay in the carwatching palm trees swirl a sickening pattern past the glass.My stomach was a melon split wide inside my skin."How do you know if you are going to die?"I begged my mother.We had been traveling for days.With strange confidence she answered,"When you can no longer make a fist."Years later I smile to think of that journey,the borders we must cross separately,stamped with our unanswerable woes.I who did not die, who am still living,still lying in the backseat behind all my questions,clenching and opening one small hand."
Author: Naomi Shihab Nye

41. "I want you." She felt the words wrench from her. As they slipped from her mouth into his, he crushed her against him in a grip that left all gentleness behind. His lips savaged, warred, absorbed, util they were both speechless. With an inarticulate mrumuer, Grant buried his face in her hair and fought to find reason."Good God,in another minute I'll forget it's still daylight and this is a public road."Gennie ran her fingers down the nape of his neck. "I already have."Grant forced the breath in and out of his lungs three times, then lifted his head. "Be careful," he warned quietly. "I have a more difficult time remembering to be civilized than doing what comes naturally. At this moment I'd feel very natural dragging you into the backseat,tearing off your clothes and loving you until you were senseless."A thrill rushed up and down her spine, daring her,urging her. She leaned closer utnil her lips were nearly against his. "One should never go against one's nature."
Author: Nora Roberts
42. "Anybody else think that was weird?" Shane asked as they got into the car. Eve sent him an exasperated glance; the three of them were, of course, in the backseat. Amelie had the front, with Michael."Ya think? In general, or in particular?""Weird that we got through the entire thing, and I didn't have to hit anybody."There was a moment of silence. Michael said, as he started the car, "You're right, Shane. That is strange."
Author: Rachel Caine
43. "That girl in the backseat of the beater, I wonder if she's bored d restless, stuck in this small town, hating the slow, stoned laughter and the same rock song on the radio. I hope she caught a glimpse of me through the steam. Even if she only saw my tear widen and my legs kick off the ground, she might think I know where I'm going. She might think I've found a way."
Author: Rebecca Godfrey
44. "Why do so many Americans say they want their children to watch less TV, yet continue to expand the opportunities for them to watch it? More important, why do so many people no longer consider the physical world worth watching? The highway's edges may not be postcard perfect. But for a century, children's early understanding of how cities and nature fit together was gained from the backseat: the empty farmhouse at the edge of the subdivision; the variety of architecture, here and there; the woods and fields and water beyond the seamy edges--all that was and still is available to the eye. This was the landscape that we watched as children. It was our drive-by movie."
Author: Richard Louv
45. "Any government will work if authority and responsibility are equal and coordinate. This does not insure "good" government, it simply insures that it will work. But such governments are rare — most people want to run things, but want no part of the blame. This used to be called the "backseat driver" syndrome."
Author: Robert A. Heinlein
46. "Fifteen-year-old girls produce children with sixteen-year-old boys in the backseat of cars and in the stairwells of apartment buildings.

Author: Scott Simon
47. "When Alex leaves a little later, Carlos steps forward. "Need help?"I shake my head."Are you ever gonna talk to me again? Dammit, Kiara, enough with the silent treatment. I'd rather have you say your little two-word sentences than stop talkin' altogether. Hell, just flipme off again."I toss my backpack in the backseat and start the engine."Where are you goin'?" Carlos asks, stepping in front of my car.I beep."I'm not movin'," he says.My response is another beep. It's not an intimidating, deep beep like most cars, but it's the best my car can give.He places both hands on the hood."Move," I say.He moves all right. With pantherlike quickness, Carlos jumps through the open passenger window, feet first. "You should get the door fixed," he says."
Author: Simone Elkeles
48. "What if they don't let us go through?" I ask, trying not to move my lips. "They will," he answers from the dark recesses of the backseat footwell. "How do you know?" "Because you have the look they're looking for." "What look is that?" "Beautiful." His voice is like a caress from the shadows."
Author: Susan Ee
49. "As Ian popped the lock and opened the car door, he turned to Phoebe. "Can you do me a favour?"She immediately stepped toward him, fully embracing their new mature relationship. "Of course."Ian looked pointedly over his own shoulder and said, "Tell me the truth. Does this car make my glowing ass look fat?"She'd naturally followed the direction of his gaze, but now she looked up, hard, into his eyes. And she smiled back at him despite herself. She even laughed. "You're an idiot.""When things get too serious, I get a rash."She pointedly looked back down at his nether regions, despite the fact doing so made her blush. Still, she spoke coolly, dryly. "Not on your ass."If Ian believed in love, that would've been it for him. Instantly. Enthrallingly. Eternally. Instead, he just laughed. "Thank God for that. See if there's anything remotely clothinglike in the backseat or the trunk."
Author: Suzanne Brockmann
50. "Elias revved the engine menacingly. I put my hand on the steering wheel. "That's my mom! Don't even think about it." "How about I just back over the ones behind us?" " Or the ones on the sidewalk," one of the guys in the backseat suggested. "Be serious," I said, though they might have been."
