After Elizabeth & Mrs Gardiner pay their visit to Georgiana, Miss Bingley can't help herself. She has to say something to Darcy
"For my own part," she rejoined, "I must confess that I never could see any beauty in her. Her face is too thin; her complexion has no brilliancy; and her features are not at all handsome. Her nose wants character -- there is nothing marked in its lines. Her teeth are tolerable, but not out of the common way; and as for her eyes, which have sometimes been called so fine, I never could perceive anything extraordinary in them. They have a sharp, shrewish look, which I do not like at all; and in her air altogether there is a self-sufficiency without fashion, which is intolerable."
This last line is perfect, and readers can feel good that Caroline finally got smacked down. :-p
