Herb: How is term paper-grading coming along in your class this semester?
Craig: Dude, I had to Safire so many semicolons, it was atrocious.

Janet: And I was all: "Are you for real?" And he was like: "Totally."
Crissy: Don't you mean; "I asked: 'are you for real?', and he replied: 'totally'"?
Janet: Actually, it is functionally correct to use "all" and "like" in the quotative, especially when engaged in colloquial conversation.
Crissy: Well I'll be Safired.
