Stately, plump Buck Mulligan came from the stairhead, bearing a bowl of lather on which he had gone through a mirror and a razor. A yellow dressing gown, ungirdled, stood behind him gently in the mild morning air. He held the bowl aloft and intoned: – Introibo ad altare Dei.
Mr Leopold Bloom ate with relish the inner organs of beasts and fowl. He liked thick giblet soup, nutty gizzards, a stuffed roast heart, liver slices fried with crustcrumbs, hencod fried eggs. He especially liked grilled kidneys of mutton, which gave to his palate a fine taste of the urine smell faintly.

… and how he kissed me under the Moorish wall and I thought, so he and another and then asked her eyes to ask again yes and then asked me if I was going to say yes my mountain flower and first I put my arms around him yes and drew him towards me so I could feel my breasts all perfume yes and his heart was going like mad and yes I said yes, yes I will.
