Lady Bracknell

Was looking at Domincanus today and noticed a link to The Perorations of Lady Bracknell.

It made me want to read The Importance of Being Ernest again but alas I've misplaced or lent the book to someone. (BTW, I've never seen the film.) So anyway here is the infamous line from Lady Bracknell:
Lady Bracknell: Are your parents living?
Jack (né Ernest) Worthing: I have lost both my parents.
Lady Bracknell: To lose one parent, Mr. Worthing, may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks like carelessness.

PS. If you are reading this and have my copy of
The Importance of Being Earnest and other plays by Oscar Wilde please let me know.
