Miss Burrows: Excuse my saying so, Miss Vane, but given your own terrible experience, I wonder that you should still decide to write the sort of books you do.

Harriet Vane: You're saying that anyone with proper feelings would rather scrub floors for a living? Well, I should scrub floors very badly, and I write mysteries rather well.

Lord Peter Wimsey: This bowtie is a mess.

Bunter: Yes, too perfect. Quite like a made-up affair.

[Wimsey pulls off the tie and begins to re-tie it]

Bunter: Ah.

Lord Peter Wimsey: Bunter, what does "ah" mean?

Bunter: I have observed, my lord, that on the few occasions when our sangfroid slips, it means we have a rendezvous with Miss Vane.

Lord Peter Wimsey: Bunter, you have a wonderful gift for impudence.

Bunter: Thank you, my lord.

[Wimsey finishes re-tying]

Lord Peter Wimsey: Bunter, how's that?

Bunter: Perfect. That is to say, slightly flawed. The mark of a true gentleman.
