Famous first lines

What famous first lines do you remember? Here are some of my favourites:
  • Sophie Dempsey didn't like Temptation even before the Garveys smashed into her '86 Civic, broke her sister's sunglasses, and confirmed all her worst suspicions about people from small towns who drove beige Cadillacs. ~ Welcome to Temptation, Jennifer Crusie

  • My desert island, all-time, top five most memorable split-ups, in chronological order: ~ High Fidelity, Nick Hornby

  • The moment Tanya Redford spotted the caramel-skinned hunk in the hotel foyer she knew two things: that the guy was a con artist and that she was in trouble – big time. ~ Fiji On Fire Fiji On Ice, Eve Summers
