I love to sing high notes, Tom sang shatteringly

Gregorian music is my favorite, Tom chanted in a sing-song.

"I just can't stop eating these North African dates," said Tom moorishly.

"Ughh! That was a Seville Orange!" Tom complained bitterly.

"The answer's a lemon," Tom said sourly.

"Would you like an olive?" he enquired oilily.

"I can shoot an apple off the top of your head," Tom boasted tellingly.

"That's a nice pear you've got," he told her, double-entendredly.

"Over here, we call them 'marrows', not 'squash,'" Tom replied crushingly.

- and a sweetener to finish with:-
"Oooh! look! some one's given me some sugary Turkish sweets!" Tom exclaimed delightedly.

Would you like an olive?" he enquired oilily.

Yes, please" Tom replied unctuously.

"I'll take mine with a lemon twist," his companion said acidly.

"Martini's? I like mine very dry." Tom said brutishly.
"I like my scotch on the rocks" Tom commented icily.
"Just a splash of mixer" Tom requested gingerly.

(thank's AsP for the inspiration!)

"The prisoner is going down the stairs," said Tom condescendingly.

"The prisoner is going to work on stencils today," said Tom contemplatingly.
