Verbal Irony: "Divorces are made in heaven" Usually matches are made in heaven, not break ups.
Dramatic Irony: "Good heavens [...] why are there no cucumber sandwiches?" This is ironic because the audience knows that he has been eating the cucumber sandwiches throughout the whole scene.
Dramatic Irony: "My brother [is] dead" This is ironic because the audience knows that Algernon (pretending to be Jack's brother) is at his home while Jack has no clue he is there.
Situational Irony: "To see so perfect a reconciliation" This is ironic because Dr. Chasuble and Miss Prism think that Jack and Algernon enjoy being reunited. But, in reality, Jack is furious.
Dramatic Irony: "Bunbury doesn't live here. Bunbury is somewhere else at present. In fact, Bunbury is dead." This is ironic because the audience knows that Bunbury is not real, therefore, no one has died. Lady Bracknell, however, does not know that Bunbury is not real.
Situational Irony: "I've now realized for the first time in my life the vital Importance of Being Earnest" This is ironic because Jack's name is Ernest and he did not know that. So, he lied about his name.
