THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST - 15 -

Jack: Do you think there's any chance of Gwendolen becoming like her
     mother in about 150 years, Algy?
Algy: My dear fellow, all women become like their mothers. That is their
     tragedy. No man does, and that's his.
Jack: Is that clever?
Algy: It's perfectly phrased and about as true as any observation in
     civilised life should be.
Gwendolen: Ernest.
Jack: Gwendolen!
Gwendolen: Ernest, my dear Ernest. Algy, please, I have something to
         say to Mr. Worthing.
Jack: My own darling.
Gwendolen: Ernest, the story of your romantic origin as related to me
         by Mama with unpleasing comments has naturally stirred
         the deeper fibres of my nature. I followed you here to
         reassure you that there is nothing that she can possibly do
         can alter my eternal devotion to you.
Jack: Dear Gwendolen.
Gwendolen: Your town address at the Albany I have. What is your
         address in the country?
Jack: The Manor, Woolton, Hertfordshire.
Gwendolen: I will communicate with you daily.
Jack: My own one.
Gwendolen: Oh!
