from "Little Dorrit" (2008)
[Mr Merdle has committed suicide. The doctor has called at his house to break the news to Mrs Merdle]
Doctor: Mr Merdle is dead.
Scary Butler: [coldly] I see. In that case I should want to give one month's notice.
Doctor: Mr Merdle has destroyed himself.
Scary Butler: Yes, it's very unpleasant, Sir, to the feelings of one in my position. I think I should leave immediately.
Lawyer: Good God, man! If you are not shocked, are you at least not surprised? Your master is dead, and by his own hand.
Scary Butler: Sir, Mr Merdle never was quite the gentleman and no ungentlemanly act on his part could surprise me.
