ALGERNON
Lane, you’re a perfect pessimist.

LANE
I do my best to give satisfaction, sir.
[Enter JACK. LANE goes off.]

JACK
There’s a sensible, intellectual girl! the only girl I ever cared for in my life. [ALGERNON is laughing immoderately.] What on earth are you so amused at?

ALGERNON
Oh, I’m a little anxious about poor Bunbury, that is all.

JACK
If you don’t take care, your friend Bunbury will get you into a serious scrape some day.

ALGERNON
I love scrapes. They are the only things that are never serious.

JACK
Oh, that’s nonsense, Algy. You never talk anything but nonsense.

ALGERNON
Nobody ever does.
[JACK looks indignantly at him, and leaves the room. ALGERNON lights a cigarette, reads his shirt-cuff, and smiles.]
