As he says himself, he is 'no orator', so it doesn't seem likely that he could be accidentally swept away with her praises, especially in Lucy's face. All that I can see reasonably talked about is 'so my dear Edward, what have you been doing since I saw you last?' 'well my sister's moved in to her new house, and I met her half-sisters-in-law who have now moved away'.
Lucy says he talked constantly in their praise, but I feel that it might have been the opposite: that he said very little about them, gripped by his sense of guilt, and that she picked up on this reticence.
