in consequence of the missive, nice catch indeed - let's make a list, penned by mikeB in Japan
At the moment, we do not know the effect of such teasing (so different from Henry Tilney's kind teasing of Catherine Morland in Northanger Abbey) upon their daughters. Who among them catch the witticisms? What do they think of it Do they feel like their father, like their mother or none? To what extent do they reproduce it, or at the opposite, endeavour to behave differently? In what can it influence them? For instance, Elizabeth is the one who seems likely to catch her father's wit and to reproduce it, thus seeming to feel predator-like in the family "cat-and-mouse" game of her father with her mother, can she ever feel the prey out of her family, and was it the case at the assembly, hearing the dialogue between Mr Bingley and Mr Darcy?
