U\'s credo:

Undershaft. Two things necessary for salvation.

Cusins. [disappointed, but polite] ah, the Church Catechism, Charles Lomax also belongs to the Established Church.

Undershaft. The two things are –

Cusins. Baptism and –

Undershaft. No. Money and gunpowder.

Cusins. [surprised by interested] That is the general opinion of our governing classes. The novelty is in hearing any man confess it.

Undershaft. Just so.
