* At the climax, Mr. Knightly's emotions are expressed this way: Emma is low and dejected ("Frank Churchill is a villain!"). Emma never felt anything for Frank ("Frank Churchill is not so bad.")

* The LemonyNarrator gets some good snark in. For instance, when Emma meditates on Harriet's good heart and thinks that "to resemble her would be more for her own welfare and happiness could be more for her own welfare than all that genius and intelligence could do," the narration quickly disperses the idea:
-->'''Narrator:''' "It was rather too late in the day to set about being simple-minded and ignorant..."

--> '''Mr Woodhouse:''' Ah, Miss Taylor, if you had not married, you would have staid at home with me.
--> '''Mrs Weston:''' Well, sir, as I took Miss Taylor away, it is incumbent on me to supply her place, if I can.
