You have eaten all

In Telemachus Haines leaves the tower first, followed by Mulligan, who calls behind him, “Come out, Kinch. You have eaten all we left, I suppose.” The remark implies that Stephen has hungrily finished off the leavings on Mulligan’s and Haines’ plates, and that doing so is somehow ill-mannered. This exchange does not reflect well on the moneyed and supercilious Mulligan, but it also seems to show Joyce reflecting on the dismal figure he cut when he was 22.
