ALGERNON [picking up empty plate in horror]. Good heavens! Lane! Why are there no cucumber sandwiches? I ordered them specially.
LANE [gravely]. There were no cucumbers in the market this morning, sir. I went down twice.
ALGERNON. No cucumbers!
LANE. No, sir. Not even for ready money.
ALGERNON. That will do, Lane, thank you.
LANE. Thank you, sir. [Goes out.]
