This is just one particular thing I have against P2 that really irritates me every time I see it and always makes me start yelling at Benwick. In the movie he quotes the last verse from Byron's poem "Fare Thee Well"--the story takes place in 1814, yes? Well, Byron wrote that poem in 1816 during the break-up of his marriage to Annabella--considering the fact that he married her in 1815, it's a pretty trick that Benwick can quote that poem! That just really drives my hackles up because I am such a Byron fan.
