Top 3 Funniest Quotes From The Importance of Being Earnest


(Plus a comparison to a Flight of the Conchords song…)

1. “How you can sit there, calmly eating muffins when we are in this horrible trouble, I can’t make out. You seem to me to be perfectly heartless.”

“Well, I can’t eat muffins in an agitated manner. The butter would probably get on my cuffs. One should always eat muffins quite calmly. It is the only way to eat them.”

“I say it’s perfectly heartless your eating muffins at all, under the circumstances.”

2. “You have filled my tea with lumps of sugar, and though I asked most distinctly for bread and butter, you have given me cake. I am known for the gentleness of my disposition, and the extraordinary sweetness of my nature, but I warn you, Miss Cardew, you may go too far.”

3. “Ever since I met you I have admired you more than any girl…I have ever met since…I met you.”

(This last quote is a lot like a line in the hilarious song, “Jenny,” by Flight of the Conchords:

“I meant it was nice to meet you that time that I met you…When was it that we met that time that I met you when I met you?”)
