Quote chapter and verse



[by analogy with the mainstream phrase] To cite a relevant excerpt from an appropriate bible. “I don’t care if “rn” gets it wrong; “Followup-To: poster” is explicitly permitted by RFC 1036. I’ll quote chapter and verse if you don’t believe me.” See also legalese, language lawyer, RTFS (sense 2).
