CABBAGES AND KINGS:
a book title by O. Henry
line in _The Walrus and The Carpenter_ by Lewis Carroll; an 1872 stanza:

"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
Of cabbages--and kings--
And why the sea is boiling hot--
And whether pigs have wings."

Knicked from http://www.jabberwocky.com/carroll/walrus.html on or about 19 Jan. 2008. This part was used in John Wayne's 1963 Donovan's Reef.

Only six happy couples out of six novels? Jim.

I am acquainted with only S&S, P&P, and Emma. S&S has Elinor's and Marianne's couplings, for 2.
P&P has Jane's, Lizzie's, Lydia's giddiness, and Charlotte's satisfactory situation, for 4.
Emma has Anne "Miss Taylor," Mrs. Elton's giddiness/idiocy, Jane nee Fairfax, Harriet's, and Emma's for another 5.

If I have done my adding right, there is eleven possibly happy couples out of three novels.

Now, as to the male scoundrels, we have Wi Wi (say that with a short "i" sounds), Wickham (P&P) and Wiloughby (S&S). If I had only one bullet to shoot them, I would have to choose a .41 Mag, and hope I can put it through the ears of the first and hit the second. A black powder ball from a pistol does not have the muscle, and until Colt's percussion cap, c.1845, repeating was done by a second pistol.

Thoughts?
