Gremin - Prince Gremin, a character in Chaykovski's opera Eugene Onegin (on Antiterra known as Onegin and Olga by Tschchaikow, 1.25); Van mistakes Yuzlik (the director of Don Juan's Last Fling, the movie in which Ada played the gitanilla, 3.5) for Andrey Vinelander (Ada's husband): The next outstretched hand belonged to a handsome, tall, remarkably substantial and cordial nobleman who could be none other than the Prince Gremin of the preposterous libretto, and whose strong honest clasp made Van crave for a disinfecting fluid to wash off contact with any of her husband's public parts. (3.8)
