How do I use custom bullet char?

Is there a way I can give a bullet list a class -- so to assign "" char as a bullet char for a given list (and have the default bullets in other lists)?

I need it to cite dialogs:

-- The next time I tell You that I saw something -- You believe me!
-- Oh, relax -- now that we saw Dracula, the Wolfman and a Monster -- there's nobody to fright us anymore. *(and the Invisible man in the rostrum -- lights a cigar)*

But there's no list directive -- so I could not assign it a class, and customize list through a css.

Boris.
