"if you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where i was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that david copperfield kind of crap, but i don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth. in the first place, that stuff bores me, and in the second place, my parents would have two hemmorrhages a piece if i told you anything pretty personal about them. they're quite touchy about anything like that, expecially my father. they're nice and all - i'm not saying that - but they're also touchy as hell. besides, i'm not going to tell you my whole goddamn autobiography or anything."
