Quote #10

LOPAKHIN. I've never learned anything, my handwriting is bad, I write so that I'm quite ashamed before people, like a pig! (2.64)

Lopakhin is equally honest about his background, whether he's with servants or aristocrats.

Quote #11

VARYA. Why is Epikhodov here? Who said he could play billiards? I don't understand these people. (3.51)

Varya is more conservative and hierarchical than the generation above her. Gaev and Lubov don't seem to care that the workers are enjoying themselves at the party, but Varya can't stand it.
