  • QUOTES (5)

    • Richard: We were told we'd all made a mess of things. Then, after the war, we must leave it to all the younger men. But the younger men are either cynical or dead.

    • Mrs Bridges: Ruby! Bringing all them letters into the house from strangers. You put them on the fire this instant. You don't know where they've been.

    • (Ruby put an advertisement in the paper. She was allowed to use twenty words.)
      Rose: What did you say?
      Ruby: Genteel young lady wishes to correspond with eligible young man.
      Frederick: That wasn't twenty words.
      Ruby: Well, I couldn't think of anything more to say.

    • Sir Guy Paynter: My dear Polly, I should love to come to your charity concert. I'm sure it's immensely worthy. All charities are. If I could find an unworthy charity, I should give immediately. So much more stimulating.

    • Hudson: They also serve who only stand and wait.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Sir Guy Paynter: Why are you giving this luncheon party today, instead of sitting comfortably with your feet up, eating an omelette, reading the latest Michael Arlen novel?
      Virginia: I'm glad you didn't say Ethel M. Dell.

      Michael Arlen (1895-1956) became famous for his satirical romance novels. The novels of Ethel May Dell (1881-1939) were just as romantic, though deemed racy by some sensitive readers.

    • Ruby and Herbert go the see The Eagle, a 1925 film starring Ruby's favourite actor Rudolph Valentino.

    • Sir Guy gives Virginia a first edition of "Men and Women", a collection of poems by Robert Browning (1812-1889), published in 1855.
