Orinthia (holding on): "Why are you so afraid of your wife? You are the laughing stock of London, you poor henpecked darling." Magnus: "Henpecked!.. At least my wife does not restrain me by bodily violence". Orinthia: "I will not be deserted for your old Dutch." (B. Shaw, ‘The Apple Cart’, ‘Interlude’) — Оринсия (не уступая): "Почему ты так боишься своей жены? Ты же стал посмешищем Лондона. Бедняжка муж под пятой своей жены." Магнус: "Под пятой жены?.. По крайней мере, силой жена меня не держит." Оринсия: "Я не потерплю, чтобы ты бросил меня ради своей старухи."
