Edited to Add: Since I got a complaint and a downvote for using "quicker" and "quickest" as adverbs (when they seem nominally to be adjectives), I thought I would put that as a question, and garnered responses that seemed to militate strongly towards my usage here to be legitimate. A paraphrased "Casual yet still grammatical" was the judgment of one commenter who consulted an online dictionary about adverbial use of a nominal adjective. So I will stand by my answer, and invite the downvoter to reconsider. Edited further to Add: I had never heard of the term "flat adverb" before, but @FumbleFingers directed my attention to it on grammarist.com: "Some adverbs don’t change from their adjectival forms. These are known as flat adverbs. A few of the most common ones are close, deep, fast, quick, and right. Some of these have corresponding -ly adverbs with which they are interchangeable—for example, come quick and come quickly mean the same thing."
