Jessie Bond:
Is one to presume one is to be prevented from wearing one's corset, Madame Leon?



Madame Leon:
Miss Bond, none of the ladies shall be wearing corsets during the performance.



Jessie Bond:
That's simply preposterous!



Madame Leon:
Our aim is to emulate the Japanese ladies, and Japanese ladies are as thin as thread paper, inasmuch a Roman column as opposed to a Grecian urn.

Richard Temple:

[giving notes after a dress rehearsal]



Gilbert:
Your performances were, on the whole, promising, which is more than can be said, alas, for that of the sliding doors. One of which might have thought it was in Japan, but the other was apparently stubbornly laboring under the misapprehension that it was on holiday in Yorkshire.
