“BECKET (Richard Burton, hosting the King for dinner):
— Tonight you can do me the honor of christening my forks.
.
KING HENRY II (Peter O’Toole):
— Huh?… Forks?
.
BECKET:
 — Yes, from Florence. New little invention. It’s for sticking into meat and carrying it to the mouth. It saves you dirtying your fingers.
.
KING HENRY II :
— But then you dirty the fork.
.
BECKET:
— Yes, but it’s washable.
.
KING HENRY II :
— So are your fingers. I don’t see the point.”

(Becket, Jean Anouilh)
