"When you have killed all your own birds, Mr. Bingley, ' said her mother, 'I beg you will come here, and shoot as many as you please, on Mr. Bennet's manor. I am sure he will be vastly happy to oblige you, and will save all the best of the covies for you.'"
This makes Lizzy miserable and causes her to fear, that even if Bingley renews his attentions, things will still end badly for Jane...
Why is this SUCH bad form on Mrs. Bennett's part? I don't see how this is any different than all the other over-the-top stuff she says...
Anyway, every time I read this (or watch P&P2)I always wonder why Elizabeth is about to come out of her skin....
