* The second best [[LemonyNarrator Lemony Narration]] in Chapter 28's descriptions of Hunsford:
--> After sitting long enough to admire every article of furniture in the room, from the sideboard to the fender, to give an account of their journey, and of all that had happened in London, Mr. Collins invited them to take a stroll in the garden,...
--> Here, leading the way through every walk and cross walk, and scarcely allowing them an interval to utter the praises he asked for, every view was pointed out with a minuteness which left beauty entirely behind.
--> ...Charlotte took her sister and friend over the house, extremely well pleased, probably, to have the opportunity of showing it without her husband's help.
--> When Mr. Collins could be forgotten, there was really a great air of comfort throughout, and by Charlotte's evident enjoyment of it, Elizabeth supposed he must be often forgotten.

* Mr Bennet, meanwhile, is not taken in by Wickham's woes and simply quips "With such narratives to hand, who would read novels?" And after the whole mess with Lydia is settled, he declares that Wickham is going to be his favorite of the husbands just for the entertainment value.

* When Mrs Bennett calls on the ill Jane with her three younger daughters, Caroline Bingley's reaction is made priceless by Kelly Reilly's delivery.
--> "Are we to receive ''every'' Bennett in the country!"
** Note that this is after the footman has announced "Mrs Bennett with Miss Bennett, [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Miss Bennett and Miss Bennett]]."
** The above introduction is also hilarious because it blatantly disregards the convention of the time. Only the oldest daughter present (presumably Mary, since Jane and Lizzie are already there) 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.

* 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.)
