It got darker and darker, and it was a beautiful time to give the crowd the slip; but that big husky had me by the wrist – Hines – and a body might as well try to give Goliar the slip.

– Mark Twain

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Chapter 29. Huck is being dragged along by Hines who has found out about the plan by the Duke and King to rob the Wilks family. Goliar is an allusion to Goliath, the giant warrior of the Phillistines who first appears in the Bible in 1 Samuel.
