Cecily: No, I often like to be looked at.More Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] [04/20/2007 12:04:00]
[on hearing that Jack's wastrel brother died suddenly]
Miss Prism: What a lesson for him. I trust he will profit by it.More Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] [04/20/2007 12:04:00]
Cecily: You must not laugh at me, darling, but it has always been a girlish dream of mine to love a man named Earnest.More Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] [04/20/2007 12:04:00]
Jack: I don't actually know who I am by birth. I was... well, I was found.
Lady Bracknell: Found?
Jack: Yes. The late Mr. Thomas Cardew, an old gentlemen of a kindly disposition found me and gave me the name of Worthing because he happened to have a first class ticket to Worthing at the time. Worthing is a place in Sussex. It's a seaside resort.
Lady Bracknell: And where did this charitable gentlemen with the first class ticket to the seaside resort find you?
Jack: In a handbag.
Lady Bracknell: [closes eyes briefly] A handbag?
Jack: Yes, Lady Bracknell, I was in a hand bag. A somewhat large... black... leather handbag with handles... to it.
[pause]
Lady Bracknell: An ordinary handbag.
Lady Bracknell: And where did this Mr. James... or, Thomas Cardew come across this ordinary handbag?
Jack: The cloak room at Victoria Station. It was given to him in mistake for his own...
Lady Bracknell: [Shocked] The cloak room at Victoria Station?
Jack: Yes. The Brighton line.
Lady Bracknell: The line is immaterial.
[begins tearing up notes]
Lady Bracknell: Mr. Worthing. I must confess that I feel somewhat bewildered by what you have just told me. To be born, or at any rate bred in a handbag, whether it have handles or not, seems to me to display a contempt for the ordinary decencies of family life which reminds one of the worst excesses of the French revolution, and I presume you know what that unfortunate movement led to?More Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] [04/20/2007 12:04:00]
Algy: Do you mean you couldn't love me if I had a different name?
Cecily: But what name?

Gwendolyn: Where questions of self-sacrifice are concerned, men are infinitely beyond us!More Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] [04/20/2007 12:04:00]

Gwendolyn: Let us preserve a dignified silence.
Cecily: Certainly. It is the only thing to do now.
[Jack and Algernon begin serenading them]

[in the end credits]
Jack: Algy, you're always talking nonsense.
Algy: It's better than listening to it.More Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] [04/20/2007 12:04:00]
Lady Bracknell: To lose one parent, Mr. Worthing, may be regarded as a misfortune. To lose both looks like carelessness.More Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] [04/20/2007 12:04:00]
Cecily: What a charming boy, I like his hair so much!More Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] [04/20/2007 12:04:00]
Jack: Good heavens, I suppose a man may eat his own muffins in his own garden.
Algy: But you have just said it was perfectly heartless to eat muffins!
Jack: I said it was perfectly heartless of YOU under the circumstances. That is a very different thing.
Algy: That may be, but the muffins are the same!More Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] [04/20/2007 12:04:00]

Jack: How you can sit there eating muffins when we're in this terrible trouble, I can't make out! It seems to me to be perfectly heartless...

Algy: Did you hear what I was playing, Lane?
Lane: I didn't think it polite to listen, Sir.More Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] [04/20/2007 12:04:00]
Algy: But why does your aunt call you her uncle?
[Reading cigarette case]
Algy: "From little Cecily, with her fondest love to her dear Uncle Jack." There is no objection, I admit, to an aunt being a small aunt, but why an aunt, no matter what her size may be, should call her own nephew her uncle, I can't quite make out.More Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] [04/20/2007 12:04:00]

Jack: How dare you.
Algy: I'll take this next bit.
Jack: You leave this one to me, you go and have a lie-down.
Algy: I'm doing it.
Jack: Move out of my way, I'm coming through.
Algy: Go easy, my dear fellow...
Jack: [singing] COME DO-O-O-O-WN, LADY COME DOWN...
Algy: Overdoing it, less is more.More Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] [04/20/2007 12:04:00]
[Jack tells Lady Bracknell his address in London]
Lady Bracknell: The unfashionable side. I thought there was something.
[she reaches for the bell, but reconsiders and pulls back]
Lady Bracknell: However, that could easily be altered.
Jack: Do you mean the fashion, or the side?
Lady Bracknell: Well, both, if necessary, I presume!More Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] Movie: Importance of Being Earnest [2002] [04/20/2007 12:04:00]
Algy: Bunbury? He was quite *exploded*.
Lady Bracknell: Exploded?
Algy: [pretending sadness] Mm.
Lady Bracknell: Was he the victim of some revolutionary outrage? I was not aware that Mr. Bunbury was interested in social legislation.
Algy: My dear Aunt Augusta, I mean he was *found out*. The doctors found out that Bunbury could not live - that is what I mean - so Bunbury died.
