OKAY here it is:

"Finally, the blonde one got up to dance with me,
because you could tell I was really talking to her, and
we walked out to the dance floor. The other two GROOLS
nearly had hysterics when we did. I certainly must've
been very hard up to even bother with any of them.
    But it was worth it. The blonde was some dancer.
She was one of the best dancers I ever danced with.
I'm not kidding, some of these very stupid girls can
really knock you out on a dance floor. You take a
really smart girl, and half the time she's trying to lead
you around the dance floor, or else she's such a lousy
dancer, the best thing to do is stay at the table and just
get drunk with her."

"heh...first time I picked up Salinger in some time. Some pretty
wonderful lines just in that chapter..."
