What, you mean it wasn't a documentary?

RUTH
One moment! let me tell you who they are.
They are no members of the common throng;
They are all noblemen who have gone wrong.

ALL
They are all noblemen who have gone wrong.

MAJOR-GENERAL STANLEY
No Englishman unmoved that statement hears,
Because, with all our faults, we love our House of Peers.
I pray you, pardon me, ex-Pirate King!
Peers will be peers, and youth will have its fling.
Resume your ranks and legislative duties,
And take my daughters, all of whom are beauties.

I bet that in the months following the end of The Pirates of Penzance there were some unhappy younger brothers and cousins and uncles around. I bet the House of Lords was a pretty rollicking place then, too. Yarrrr.
