    It's not a sentence, in the formal sense; merely an utterance. It could be a dependent clause if there were anything there for it depend from (though purists would object to capitalizing it). – StoneyB Jun 18 '14 at 21:31
  • It's not really a clause, unless you want to derive it from something like "And I'm not going to mention <Embellishment>" or something like that. You could call it a dependent utterance; it's totally dependent for its grammaticality on the previous discourse; in the right context it's perfectly normal, in others it's bizarre. – John Lawler Jun 18 '14 at 21:45
