  Jack: How you can sit there, calmly eating muffins when we are in this horrible trouble, I can't make out. You seem to me to be perfectly heartless. Algernon: Well, I can't eat muffins in an agitated manner. The butter would probably get on my cuffs. One should always eat muffins quite calmly. It is the only way to eat them. Jack: I say it's perfectly heartless, your eating muffins at all, under the circumstances. Algernon: When I am in trouble, eating is the only thing that consoles me. Indeed, when I am in really great trouble, as anyone who knows me intimately will tell you, I refuse everything except food and drink. At the present moment I am eating muffins because I am unhappy. Besides, I am particularly fond of muffins. [ Rising. ] Jack: [ Rising. ] Well that is no reason why you should eat them all in that greedy way. [ Takes muffins from Algernon. ] Algernon: [ Offering tea cake. ] I wish you would have tea cake instead. I don't like tea cake. Jack: Good heavens! I suppose a man may eat his own muffins in his own garden. Algernon: But you have just said it was perfectly heartless to eat muffins. Jack: I said it was perfectly heartless of you, under the circumstances. That is a very different thing. Algernon: That may be, but the muffins are the same. [ He seizes the muffin-dish from Jack. ] (full quote)
