1）"But I don't feel sad about it. Because Mother is dead. And because Mr Shears isn't around any more. So I would be feeling sad about something that isn't real and doesn't exist. And that would be stupid." 当有人为Christopher母亲的离世表示遗憾，并且试图安慰这位小男孩时，他回答说，我没有感到难过，因为妈妈已经不在了，如果为不存在的事情而难过的话，那太愚蠢了。
2）Father said, 'I love you so much, Christopher. Don't ever forget that. And I know I lose my rag occasionally. I know I get angry. I know I shout. And I know I shouldn't. But I only do it because I worry about you, because I don't want to see you getting into trouble, because I don't want you to get hurt. Do you understand?'
'I didn't know whether I understood. So I said, 'I don't know.'' 父亲为他方才的发怒而感到抱歉，告诉小男孩，这一切的都是因为他爱他，不希望他受伤，语毕问他是否能够理解。小男孩不知道自己有没有听懂了，于是回答说，我不理解。父亲随即又问，那你是否知道我爱你。小男孩说，是。
3）‘I had to get out of the house. Father had murdered Wellington. That meant he could murder me, because I couldn't trust him, even though he had said, 'Trust me', because he had told a lie about a big thing.’
