I love Mrs. Jennings response and also, like Reeba, get a kick out of Marianne's trying to keep her composure.
Another bit that reveals John Dashwood's true (lack of)character:
Here Marianne, in an ecstacy of indignation, clapped her hands together, and cried, "Gracious God! can this be possible!"
"Well may you wonder, Marianne," replied her brother, "at the obstinacy which could resist such arguments as these. Your exclamation is very natural."
And I love how Elinor finally lets loose on John in Ch. 41, though it all rolls off him. I love this particular line.
