|Caroline stumbles in an attempt to impress Darcy

I find it interesting in Chapter 8, how Caroline tries to suck up to Darcy by advising her brother to "..make your purchase (of his own house) in that neighborhood and take Pemberley for a kind of model. There is not a finer county in England than Derbyshire."
Charles responds that he would buy Pemberley if Darcy would sell it, after which Caroline tries to rectify things, saying that she was only talking of possibilities.
Charles appears then somewhat annoyed with the whole discussion, as he responds, "Upon my word, Caroline, I should think it more possible to get Pemberley by purchase than by imitation."
Poor Caroline, this discussion didn't really go the way she wanted it to. Everyone (probably except Charles) can see through her and I'm not really sure whether Caroline herself notices how well she divulges her character here.
