How to use jinx in a sentence?

  1. Liam Neeson:

    The Dustin Hoffman thing, I’m on the fence about that, when you’re doing a play and you’re with your family – other actors, technicians – you do silly things and it becomes kind of superstitious if you don’t do it every night you think it’s going to jinx the show. I’m not saying I’ve done similar things to what [Hoffman] apparently did but it’s childhood stuff.

  2. Liam Neesonhas:

    Because when you’re doing a play and you’re with your family, other actors, technicians, you do silly things. You do silly things. And it becomes kind of superstitious, if you don’t do it every night, you think it’s going to jinx the show, i think Dustin Hoffman was — I ’m not saying I’ve done similar things like what Dustin Hoffman did, Liam Neesonhas know. Apparently Dustin Hoffman touched another girl’s breast and stuff. But it’s childhood stuff, what Dustin Hoffman was doing.

  4. Bill Bratton:

    Shh ... we don't want to jinx it, we're into our 12th day now, Charlie. Eleven is a record and let's keep it going.
