Context from:Lady Windermere's Fan
ACT III
Lord Darlington's Rooms



[Enter LORD DARLINGTON, MR. DUMBY, LORD WINDERMERE, LORD AUGUSTUS LORTON, and MR. CECIL GRAHAM.
DUMBY What a nuisance their turning us out of the club at this hour! It's only two o'clock.
[Sinks into a chair.]
The lively part of the evening is only just beginning.
[Yawns and closes his eyes.]
LORD WINDERMERE It is very good of you, Lord Darlington, allowing Augustus to force our company on you, but I'm afraid I can't stay long.
LORD DARLINGTON Really! I am so sorry! You'll take a cigar, won't you?
LORD WINDERMERE Thanks!
[Sits down.]
LORD AUGUSTUS [To LORD WINDERMERE.]
My dear boy, you must not dream of going. I have a great deal to talk to you about, of demmed importance, too.
[Sits down with him at L. table.]
CECIL GRAHAM Oh! We all know what that is! Tuppy can't talk about anything but Mrs. Erlynne.
LORD WINDERMERE Well, that is no business of yours, is it, Cecil?
CECIL GRAHAM None! That is why it interests me. My own business always bores me to death. I prefer other people's.
LORD DARLINGTON Have something to drink, you fellows. Cecil, you'll have a whisky and soda?
CECIL GRAHAM Thanks.
[Goes to table with LORD DARLINGTON.]
Mrs. Erlynne looked very handsome to-night, didn't she?
LORD DARLINGTON I am not one of her admirers.
CECIL GRAHAM I usen't to be, but I am now. Why! she actually made me introduce her to poor dear Aunt Caroline. I believe she is going to lunch there.
