* Upon being asked to write a historical romance about the house pof Saxe-Cobourg, she wrote as an answer: "I could not sit down to write a serious Romance under any other motive than to save my Life, and if it were indispensable for me to keep it up and never relax into laughing at myself or other people, I am sure I should be hung before I had finished the first Chapter."
* " Mrs ... was the only one much admired. She appeared exactly as she did in September, with the same broad face, diamond bandeau, pink husband and fat neck. "

[[AC:{{Emma}}]]
* Emma feels the Coles have been getting too confident lately, considering themselves on equal footing with the first families in town. She finally feels they've crossed the line when she hears of their plans to host a party, and she cannot stand the thought of being insulted with the expectation she would attend, so she plans to put them in their place by refusing their invitation. Well, the invitations go out... and she doesn't get one. [[note]]Yes, she eventually gets one later, but that does not detract from the preceding comedy over her initial reaction.[[/note]]

* Funny/PrideAndPrejudice



[[AC:Literature/PrideAndPrejudice]]
* The scene at Netherfield where Mr. Darcy is trying to write a letter to his sister and his ClingyJealousGirl Caroline Bingley constantly interrupts him to compliment his handwriting, the evenness of his lines, observe how fast he writes, or add her own message to his sister... while remaining completely oblivious to her target's determination to ignore her as best as he can!
* There's also the scene where Mr. Collins proposes and accepts Elizabeth's answers without her responding. She tries to turn him down gently, but he's not worried. He's heard that some women turn down proposals they plan on accepting. Sometimes even three times. It takes quite a while for her to convince him she's not going to marry him.
* This is followed by a scene where Mrs. Bennet insists her husband demand Elizabeth accept Mr. Collins' suit, because if she doesn't Mrs. Bennet will never speak to her again. Mr. Bennet summons Lizzy, and sets forth this predicament: "Your mother will never see you again if you do not marry Mr. Collins, and ''I'' will never see you again if you ''do''."
* While we're on the subject of ''Literature/PrideAndPrejudice'', there is a parody called ''Literature/PrideAndPrejudiceAndZombies''...

[[AC:Literature/SenseAndSensibility]]
* Since Edward Ferrars has essentially become a RunawayFiance, his mother simply plans for his intended, Miss Morton, to possibly marry his brother Robert instead. The [=CMoF=] comes from John Dashwood's incredulous reaction to Elinor wondering if Miss Morton gets a say in this.
* Robert Ferrars and his toothpick case!
* Who is taller -- Harry Dashwood or William Middleton? The world must know!
** [[{{Hypocrite}} Lucy Steele]] can hardly make up her mind on this capital point.
** [[StupidEvil Her sister]] has chosen : they are both taller.
** Meanwhile, we can infer without too much risk that [[BrutalHonesty Marianne Dashwood]] really doesn't care.
