Simon: Mrs. Quickly, we’re very sorry about the tea you had with our father.
Mrs. Quickly: Typical of a man, sending his little ones to do the dirty work!
Simon: No, he doesn’t know we’re—what I mean is, he very much wants to marry you.
Mrs. Quickly: Yeah, it was all too clear what he wanted, and marriage had nothing to do with it (no wonder there are so many of you).
Tora: Wait! Father wasn’t trying to be rude! No one on earth could be less rude. He was just trying to protect you from all of the naughty things we were doing.
Eric: The toad in the teapot.
Lily: And the wormy sandwiches.
Sebastian: That was my idea! I mean, my fault.
