Apologies for the quiz answers being late. I had the unexpected sensation of not having to work for a few days, and actually turned the laptop off!

Swallowdale, Chapter VI

"You’ve got a jolly good crew," said Nancy. "If they hadn’t coiled your anchor-rope as it should be coiled it would have jammed, as sure as eggs is eggs, and you might never have been able to throw it clear."

Secret Water, Chapter VII

Roger was pointing. "A boat. I saw it. It was just going behind the other island."
The others looked up the Creek where Roger was pointing.
"We can’t see it now," said Roger. "It simply disappeared into the land."
"Are you sure?" said John.
"As eggs is eggs," said Roger.

The Big Six, Chapter XII

"Not going to be had that way twice," said Joe. "If anybody see us with them boats they’ll say we cast 'em off, same as George Owdon say when we tie up that cutter that were caught in the trees."
"Sure as eggs is eggs they’ll say it’s us," said Bill, who was hurriedly setting the sail.
