Bob takes it very well - he's just glad not to fight a duel: "Mind, I give up all my claim - I make no pretensions to anything in the world; and if I can't get a wife without fighting for her, by my valour I'll live a bachelor."
Sir Lucius just seems glad to not be saddled with Mrs Malaprop: "And, to show you I am not ungrateful, Captain Absolute, since you have taken that lady from me, Iíll give you my Delia into the bargain." And tries to pawn her off to Bob when Jack turns her down.
The only one I kind of feel sorry for is Mrs Malaprop herself and can see her point when she says: "O Sir Anthony ó men are all barbarians."
And though the play ends on a celebratory note with "and at night we single lads will drink a health to the young couples, and a husband to Mrs. Malaprop." I still think she got the short end of things.
How about you? Any of the single folk left that you feel sorry for? Or did they all get what they deserved?
