Elizabeth attempts to humble Darcy by praising Bingley’s opposite qualities. Mrs. Bennet attempts to do the same thing, by praising not only Bingley, but Sir William as well, and comes off as vulgar. I don’t know if Elizabeth noticed the parallel, but she blushes and trembles from embarrassment.
Bingley manages to repress a laugh at Mrs. Bennet but his sister rejoices in the vulgarity.
After another clever exchange with Elizabeth, Darcy only smiles. The use of “only” is interesting. It is at this point that Elizabeth trembles and can’t think of anything to say. Talk about electricity!
The loo table is missing but everyone except for Darcy and Caroline are playing cards. Elizabeth is doing needlework and Darcy is writing a letter. We learn that Darcy’s letters are long and well thought out.
Caroline is complimenting Darcy and Bingley “cries” out in his defence.
The meeting in the shrubbery the next morning is interesting since Darcy gets imprisoned between the two sisters and Elizabeth merrily hops away.
