Tootsie gave me a sympathetic smile. “Lieutenant Fitzgerald is a lively young man.”
“Lively,” our father said, “will not put food on a family's table either - and especially not when a great portion of whatever income he does receive goes to drink. His name - Fitzgerald - that’s Irish, you know. And I’ll suppose he's a Catholic. I’m a fair man, but there are good reasons those people have the reputations they do. Baby, you don't want to get ensnared here.”


from Z (A novel of Zelda Fitzgerald) by Therese Anne Fowler (2013)
