I found a possible example of Deadpan Snarker in the book. The quote goes as follows: Catherine: "he looked so different from his usual look... very much excited, and wild and glad!" Nelly: "Night-walking amuses him, then"

I know that there are probably more than a few published versions of this book out there, but in mine this exchange takes place on page 291, near the beginning of Volume II Chapter XX.

I think that this comment from Nelly fulfills the trope, but I am not really sure. I'd hate to put it on the list, only to find later that it is incorrect and that either someone had to take the time to remove it, or that it still stands.

•External Retcon: There's a sequel to this called simply H, which relates a letter that Heathcliff sent to Catherine; it arrived on her wedding day, but that cruel, meddling Nellie Dean keeps it from its intended recipient. In the end, it relates Heathcliff's true heritage (brace yourself!): He's the son of Edward Rochester and his first wife Bertha! ◦There Is No Such Thing As Notability — source, please.
