] The entire family had taken some extremely hard emotional "knocks" over the past year, and I guess I saw in the "mass exodus" a silent wish to have at least ONE matter finally settled!

ROFL!! One thing I get a kick out of with this scene is that it neatly reverses the earlier scene (right after Willoughby goes off and leaves Marianne with no explanation) in which ALL the women are crying and having hysterics--except for Elinor, who is left sitting on the stairs to drink the tea that Marianne refused. Now, in the "mass exodus" scene, Elinor is the one who has burst into tears and the others are composed. Well, not composed exactly, but more so than poor Elinor, as she sits with the tears running down her face . . . *smile*
- Nice comparison! Hadn't thought of that (nfm) Arnessa 13:43:29 6/27/98 (0)
