We present a simple argument that for every continuous function f : R → R its restriction to some perfect set is Lipschitz. We will use this result to provide an elementary proof of the C 1 free interpolation theorem, that for every continuous function f : R → R there exists a continuously differentiable function g : R → R which agrees with f on an uncountable set. The key novelty of our presentation is that no part of it, including the cited results, requires from the reader any prior familiarity with the Lebesgue measure theory.
