] ...it's interesting that John Knightley's character brings out the "situation fixer" in both Mr. Knightley and Emma.
So true Laraine. Emma and George's conversation at the Westons' party about bringing around the carriages once Mr Woodhouse decides to leave seems almost scripted. It definitely appears as if the two had lots of practice before in similar situations. They are both perceptive, can read a situation and do something before it becomes too unmanageable. Now we know how misguided Emma can be, but I'll nominate George to the board of any corporation today!
