When the tea-things were removed, and the card tables placed, the ladies all rose, and Elizabeth was then hoping to be soon joined by him, when all her views were overthrown by seeing him fall a victim to her mother's rapacity for whist-players, and in a few moments after seated with the rest of the party. She now lost every expectation of pleasure. They were confined for the evening at different tables, and she had nothing to hope, but that his eyes were so often turned towards her side of the room, as to make him play as unsuccessfully as herself.
I chose this quote because I always disappointed that the scene was not included in P&P2. I think it could have bookended the earlier scene with Mr. Collins.
"What is trump again?"
"Hearts, Mr. Darcy, hearts."
