Mrs Hartwell: "What is the pleasure of this Society?"
Miss Wise: "My pleasure is that we don't want any disccusion. Discussion is what the men like, and I don't want to be like a horrid man!"
Mrs. Major Warner: "Miss Wise, if you had married a horrid man long ago, you might have a different opinion of them."
Miss Wise: "I daresay it wouldn't improve my opinion of them."
Mrs. Starch: "For my part I have never regretted that I became Mrs. Starch."
Mrs. Major Warner: "Nor do I regret that I became Mrs. Major Warner. Men are not so bad after all, when you know how to manage them. I never feared matrimoney."
Miss Wise: "Nor would I, but men aren't worth the managing. I have a higher mission than to manage an insignificant man."
Miss Filbert: (aside) "Good reason! You can't get a man to manage,"
Miss Nutt: "Mrs. President, if we are not going to talk about anything but matrimony, how are we going to suppress gossip?"
Miss Prudence: "We are wasting our valuable time. If we have a mission, we had better begin; if we have not, we had better go home."
