EDNA. What an odd coincidence!
JACK. Mr. Gosport – did you – did you marry Flossie?
ARTHUR. Oh yes. She made rather a point of it, I remember.
EDNA. Arthur! You mean your daughter isn’t illegitimate?
ARTHUR. Oh no. She’s perfectly legitimate, I think.
EDNA. (Annoyed.) Well, really? Of course that puts an entirely different complexion on the whole thing. It’s going to make me look very silly – if that gets out.
ARTHUR. It all happened such a long time ago, darling, and I really didn’t see why I should bother you with the whole, rather sordid, story.
JACK. (Quietly.) Mr. Gosport – when did you divorce your first wife?
