There really are so many funny lines in these chapters that it's hard to quote them all. Lady Denham at first seemed like a friendly version of Lady Catherine, but as the scene went on she looked worse and worse. One of those people who never part with a dime if they can help it, but fancy themselves the soul of generosity.

I found Sir Edmund funny in JA's usual biting, sarcastically funny way. My favorite parts were about his love for "fashionable hard words," and how his whole goal in life is to be seductive. Does anyone know who the Richardson is whose novels he loves?

Now, I may get in trouble for saying this, but look at Sir Edmund's description of the novels he prefers:

“Most willingly, fair questioner. The novels which I
approve are such as display human nature with
grandeur; such as show her in the sublimities of intense
feeling; such as exhibit the progress of strong passion
from the first germ of incipient susceptibility to the
utmost energies of reason half-dethroned; where we see
the strong spark of woman’s captivations elicit such fire
in the soul of man as leads him—though at the risk of
some aberration from the strict line of primitive
obligations—to hazard all, dare all, achieve all to obtain
her."

Tell me this doesn't sound like a lot of fanfiction, with Darcy as the chief subject!
