I liked this bit of Wildean dialogue* between Clovis and his host:
"My mother is thinking of getting married."
"It's the first time."
"Of course, you ought to know. I was under the impression that she'd been married once or twice at least."
"Three times, to be mathematically exact. I meant that it was the first time she'd thought about getting married; the other times she did it without thinking."
FN* I think I'm safe comparing Saki (1870-1916) to Wilde (1854-1900) in this manner, since Munro (later Saki) only started writing as Wilde's career was winding down, and this collection in particular - published 12 years after Wilde's death - certainly could not have influenced Wilde.
