VALE RIO: God knows, it’s a damned sight easier to father a brat than further its education. It’s terribly sad how a Happy Event can eventuate in unhappiness! What labours I’ve been through since my mother was in labour! No good that I can conceive of ever came from my conception.

LEONCE: Concerning your conceits I am quite unconcerned. Express yourself better, or I shall impress upon you my irrepressible displeasure.
