"As far as the piano is concerned, sentiment is my forte." (darn clever, that Oscar!)
Algie : "Come, old boy, you had much better have the thing out at once."
Jack : "My dear Algy, you talk exactly as if you were a dentist. It is very vulgar to talk like a dentist when one isn't a dentist. It produces a false impression."
Algie : "Well, that is exactly what dentists always do."
"Once a week is quite enough to dine with one's own relations."
"For heaven's sake, don't try to be cynical. It's perfectly easy to be cynical."
"Miss Fairfax, ever since I met you I have admired you more than any girl...I have ever met since...I met you." (oh, that silver-tongued devil!;-)
"An engagament should come on a young girl as a surprise, pleasant or unpleasant, as the case may be." (actually, every one of Lady Bracknell's lines is a gem!)
Jack : "You don't think there's any chance of Gwendolen becoming like her mother in about a hundred and fifty years, do you, Algy?"
Algy : "All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That's his."
Algy : "Lane, you're a perfect pessimist."
Lane : "I do my best to give satisfaction, sir."
