"I know darn well she was lying." The Case of the Empty Tin - Erle Stanley Gardner, p.101
"It doesn't matter.
It's not important, not at all.
Of course I don't mind, don't be silly."
I know darn well she was lying.
"I'll call you soon.
Or maybe write.
We'll keep in touch despite the distance."
I knew darn well he was lying.
"It's in the post."
"We're on the case."
"Someone will be there first thing Monday."
You know darn well they are lying.
"I don't need you.
I'll cope alone.
I'm strong enough to do the whole thing solo."
Oh darn it, don't you know I'm lying?
