> What does this do?

in a very simple way it returns boolean but I can't say if it is true or false cause what you only have is:
this.quiet

if this.quiet is set to true somewhere or maybe false then you'll get the answer you can try:
System.out.println(this.quiet);

In a quiet way, it tells you if the current object is quiet or not :)
