Emma also singles out Mr. Knightley well after the ball. It was only a few days after the incident with the gypsies, when Harriett decided to burn her treasures from Mr. Elton. As she was discussing it with Emma, Harriett recalls perfectly where Mr. Elton sat and Emma recalls perfectly where Mr. Knightley was standing:
"I do remember it," cried Emma, "I perfectly remember it. Talking about spruce beer. Oh! yes. Mr. Knightley and I both saying we liked it, and Mr. Elton's seeming resolved to learn to like it too. I perfectly remember it. Stop; Mr. Knightley was standing just here, was not he? I have an idea he was standing just here."
"Ah! I do not know. I cannot recollect. It is very odd, but I cannot recollect. Mr. Elton was sitting here, I remember, much about where I am now."
While there may not be much more than friendship involved, it is obvious that Emma is (unconciously?) very aware of Mr. Knightley.
