"For thy part, I do wish thou wert a dog." - William Shakespeare
From Timon of Athens, the complete quotation is "For thy part, I do wish thou wert a dog, that I might love thee something." Ouch!

Let’s ask Mia and James. Everything had been going so well. Romantic dinner, long walk in the park, awkward invitation for a nightcap that lead to the couch. When suddenly, James' pet peacock slipped out of his playroom and inserted himself into the conversation. Gillian tried to laugh it off with a clever remark, but was interrupted by a mouthful of feathers.
