Mr. Bumble upon being told that the law assumes that his wife acts under his direction.

Mr. Bumble replies “If the law supposes that ... the law is a ass—a idiot. If that’s the eye of the law, the law is a bachelor; and the worst I wish the law is that his eye may be opened by experience—by experience.”
