Here's mine from Strong Poison by Dorothy L Sayers (p 56):
"What eloquence!" said Parker, unimpressed. "Anybody would think you'd gone goopy over the girl."
"That's a damned friendly way to talk," said Wimsey, bitterly. "When you went off the deep end about my sister, I may have been unsympathetic--I daresay I was--but I swear I didn't dance on your tenderest feelings and call your manly devotion 'going goopy over a girl.' I don't know where you pick up such expressions, as the clergyman's wife said to the parrot. 'Goopy,' indeed!" I never heard anything so vulgar!"
