First off, when I say 1984, I mean the book and not the year if there are any playgrounders out there that don't know of the novel's existence (just felt like I had to say that).

Second, the quote is from Winston (or whatever the main character's name is; haven't read it in awhile and I remember it being Winston) after he's been arrested and is being tortured. It's during the part when they're about to release a rat into a cage around his head to gnaw his face off when he starts shouting something like "No! Don't do it to me! Do it to Julia." I think that's what his romantic interest was, Julia? Like I said, haven't read in a few years and don't have a copy on me now so sorry if I get the names wrong. Anyway, I'm looking for the full quote of what he said. Thanks for anyone that can be of help.

May I suggest that you either put a warning in the heading, or spoiler most of your question?
I know the bit you mean, but unfortunately don't have a copy. I'll do a quick 'net search, though...

Think I've found it, anyway.
[spoiler]Do it to Julia! Do it to Julia! Not me! Julia! I don't care what you do to her. Tear her face off, strip her to the bones. Not me! Julia! Not me!l.

The quote you want is:

'Do it to Julia! Do it to Julia! Not me! Julia! I don't care what you do
to her. Tear her face off, strip her to the bones. Not me! Julia! Not me!'

Cool. Thanks everyone.

It's weird. I remember it being longer. Oh well.
