Oh, Edward! I've prepared you such a treat! I really think that of all my triumphs this is the greatest. To make something out of nothing! Never, even when travelling in Albania, have I made such a supper out of so few materials as I found in your refrigerator. But of course I was lucky to find half-a-dozen eggs.
What! You used all those eggs! Lavinia's aunt has just sent them from the country.
Ah, so the aunt really exists. A substantial proof.
No, no... I mean, this is another aunt."
