Dialogue following No. 16
Leila. (who has been much attracted by the Peers during this song) Charming persons, are they not?
Celia. Distinctly. For self-contained dignity, combined with airy condescension, give me a British Representative Peer!
Lord Tolloller. Then pray stop this protégé of yours before it’s too late. Think of the mischief you’re doing!
Leila. (crying) But we can’t stop him now. (Aside to Celia.) Aren’t they lovely! (Aloud.) Oh, why did you go and defy us, you great geese!
