Duologue: Characters: SIR ROBERT CHILTERN, MRS CHEVELEY

SIR ROBERT CHILTERN: (Bowing). Ah! Everyone is dying to know the brilliant Mrs Cheveley. Our attaches at Vienna write to us about  nothing else.

MRS CHEVELEY: Thank you, Sir Robert. An acquaintance that begins with a compliment is sure to develop into a real friendship. It starts in the right manner. And I find that I know Lady Chiltern already.

SIR ROBERT CHILTERN: Really?

MRS CHEVELEY: Yes. She has just reminded me that we were at school together. I remember it perfectly now. She always got the good conduct prize. I have a distinct recollection of Lady Chiltern always getting the good conduct prize!
