  • You're brother Ernest. He arrived about half an hour ago.
  • Jack basically says he doesn't talk to his neighbors in the country but he amuses them when he comes by.
  • Act 2
  • My darling Cecily, I think there must be some slight error. Mr. Worthing is engaged to me.

  • A hundred and thirty pounds! And in the Funds! Miss Cardew seems to me a most attractive young lady, now that I look at her.
  • Cecily tells Jack that his brother "Ernest" arrives in the country to see him.
  • Act 3
  • I always told you, Gwendolen, my name was Ernest, didn't I? Well, it is Ernest after all. I mean it naturally is Ernest.
  • Gwendolen and Cecily reveal to each other that they are both engaged to Mr. Worthing.
  • I am afraid you must be under some misconception. Ernest proposed to me exactly ten minutes ago.
