“Mr. Darcy may hug himself” from Chapter 11 is my favorite from Caroline because it presents such a terrifically ludicrous picture of Darcy crossing his arms across his chest as tightly as he can giving himself a great big ol bear hug. :D
"By the bye, Charles, are you really serious in meditating a dance at Netherfield? I would advise you, before you determine on it, to consult the wishes of the present party; I am much mistaken if there are not some among us to whom a ball would be rather a punishment than a pleasure." (Chapter 11)
Chapter 11 seems to be an evening Caroline designed for Darcy; it is hilarious. Caroline, “She had obtained private intelligence that Mr. Darcy did not wish for cards” so Mr. Hurst must sleep to avoid boredom. Caroline tries to bring up libraries again, “I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.” However no one made any reply so she has to think of something else to compliment or as chance would have it—save him from. Caroline hints to Bingley that Darcy would not enjoy a ball but Bingley will not have it. She gallantly defends him of any fault from Lizzy and is incapable of disappointing him when he guesses at the reason for their turn about the room. Caroline tries so hard but so far it is in vain. If she were not Caroline Bingley I might feel sorry for her. :D
