1) from "A YEAR with swollen appendices" by Brian Eno:

Irial [his 5-yr old daughter]: "Dad, how does a world get made?"
Dad: (long explanation)
Irial: "Is that true? Let me look into the bottom of my heart and see."
(Looks down T-shirt.)

Later, looking at a map: "How do they know where everything is?"

2) from the "Rose is Rose" cartoon by Pat Brady:

(Rose, the mom, is sweeping. Pasquale, the kid, is looking up at the
grandfather clock.)

Pasquale: Why don't clocks go up to A MILLION instead of just twelve?
Rose: I have no time for your silliness, Pasquale.
Pasquale: I know.
