* On the journey to Huntsford, Sir William Lucas is informing Maria of how much land Lady Catherine owns, and how beneficial it is that Mr. Collins has such a patron. "Your sister has made a fortunate alliance!" he says - and then gets a calm look from Elizabeth, whose family stands to suffer from said 'alliance'. ''Awkward.''

* On her last visit to Rosings, Elizabeth waxes [[SarcasmMode full sarcastic]] when Mr. Collins starts saying how sad she must be--"I hardly know how I shall bear the loss!" That's funny enough. But look over her shoulder, where Charlotte is giving Lizzy an OhCrap look at the thought that it might break through her husband's {{Sarcasm Blind}}ness. (Fortunately, it ''doesn't'', not even close.)

'''Elizabeth:''' These are heavy misfortunes. But the wife of Mr Darcy must have such extraordinary sources of happiness necessarily attached to her situation, that she could, upon the whole, have no cause to repine.

* The book's best piece of [[LemonyNarrator Lemony Narration]] comes when Elizabeth runs into her least favorite person, Mr Darcy, during her walk through Rosings Park: "She felt all the perverseness of the mischance that should bring him where no one else was brought; and to prevent its ever happening again, took care to inform him at first, that it was a favourite haunt of hers. How it could occur a second time, therefore, was very odd!" Clueless thy name is Elizabeth.

** The above introduction is also hilarious because it blatantly disregards the convention of the time. Only the oldest daughter present would be called "Miss Bennett", and the others would be called "Miss (first name". The Bingleys' footman is sure to know that, so we can only assume not even the ''footman'' thinks much of the Bennetts.
