28 Lady Bracknell. [Sitting down.] You can take a seat, Mr. Worthing. [Looks in her pocket for note-book and pencil.] Jack. Thank you, Lady Bracknell, I prefer standing. Lady Bracknell. [Pencil and note-book in hand.] I feel bound to tell you that you are not down on my list of eligible young men, although I have the same list as the dear Duchess of Bolton has. We work together, in fact. However, I am quite ready to enter your name, should your answers be what a really affectionate mother requires. Do you smoke? Jack. Well, yes, I must admit I smoke. Lady Bracknell. I am glad to hear it. A man should always have an occupation of some kind. There are far too many idle men in London as it is. How old are you? Jack. Twenty-nine.

29 Lady Bracknell. A very good age to be married at. I have always been of opinion that a man who desires to get married should know either everything or nothing. Which do you know? Jack. [After some hesitation.] I know nothing, Lady Bracknell. Lady Bracknell. I am pleased to hear it. I do not approve of anything that tampers with natural ignorance. Ignorance is like a delicate exotic fruit; touch it and the bloom is gone. The whole theory of modern education is radically unsound. Fortunately in England, at any rate, education produces no effect whatsoever. If it did, it would prove a serious danger to the upper classes, and probably lead to acts of violence in Grosvenor Square. What is your income?

30 Leydi Bracknell: [Oturarak] Oturun lütfen, Bay Worthing. [Çantasında defter ve kalem arar] Jack: Teşekkür ederim, Leydi Bracknell, ayakta durmayı yeğlerim. Leydi Bracknell: [Elinde defter ve kalemle] Bolton Düşesiyle listelerimizin aynı olmasına rağmen, kendimi size genç ve münasip damat adayı listemde olmadığınızı belirtmek zorunda hissediyorum. Aslında biz beraber çalışıyoruz. Ancak, cevaplarınız müşfik bir annenin beklediği cevaplara uygun olduğu takdirde sizi listeye almaya hazırım. Sigara kullanıyor musunuz? Jack: Şey, evet, sigara içtiğimi belirtmeden geçemeyeceğim. Leydi Bracknell: Bunu duymak beni çok mesut etti. Bir erkeğin öyle ya da böyle bir uğraşı olmalıdır. Malum, Londra'da gereğinden çok başıboş erkek var. Kaç yaşındasınız? Jack: Yirmi dokuz.

31 Leydi Bracknell: Evlenmek için çok uygun bir yaş. Evlenmek isteyen bir erkeğin ya her şeyi bilmesi gerektiğini ya da hiçbir şeyi bilmemesi gerektiğini düşünmüşümdür hep. Siz ne biliyorsunuz? Jack: [Biraz tereddüt ettikten sonra] Hiçbir şeyi bilmiyorum, Leydi Bracknell. Leydi Bracknell: Bunu duyduğuma sevindim. Katıksız cehalete etki eden hiçbir şeyi onaylamam. Cehalet narin bir egzotik meyve gibidir, dokunduğun anda tazeliğini yitirir. Bütün bu modern eğitim teorisi baştan aşağıya hatalı. Neyse ki İngiltere'de eğitim hiçbir işe yaramıyor. Yarasaydı, üst sınıflar için ciddi tehlike teşkil ederdi ve muhtemelen Grosvenor Meydanı'nda şiddet olaylarına yol açardı. Geliriniz nedir?
