I enjoy the way Mrs. Bennet contradicts herself without realizing it in Chapter 20:
…Mrs. Bennet was alone, than she likewise began on the subject, calling on Miss Lucas for her compassion, and entreating her to persuade her friend Lizzy to comply with the wishes of all her family. "Pray do, my dear Miss Lucas," she added in a melancholy tone, "for nobody is on my side, nobody takes part with me; I am cruelly used, nobody feels for my poor nerves." (emphasis mine)
And of course:
"I told you in the library, you know, that I should never speak to you again…."
