Potts (this issue) claims that non-speaker-oriented expressive content may be handled by the introduction of an expressive judge to the context. Given both that expressives may express sentiments temporally and modally displaced from the utterance and that there may be multiple expressive judges per sentence, I argue that a unitary judge is insuffcient, and suggest that non-speaker-oriented expressives are more directly captured as a species of partial quotation.
