Het viel mij voor het eerst op toen de eerste plannen gemaakt werden voor de Box Hill party.
This was so well understood between them, that Emma could not but feel some surprise, and a little displeasure, on hearing from Mr. Weston that he had been proposing to Mrs. Elton, as her brother and sister had failed her, that the two parties should unite, and go together; and that as Mrs. Elton had very readily acceded to it, so it was to be, if she had no objection. (...) Every feeling was offended; and the forbearance of her outward submission left a heavy arrear due of secret severity in her reflections on the unmanageable good-will of Mr. Weston's temper.De tweede keer is het Mr. Knightley die ondervindt dat het vriendelijke, sociale karakter van Mr. Weston niet altijd even welkom is, wanneer hij daardoor verplicht wordt om Frank Churchill uit te nodigen om aardbeien te komen eten.
(...) and Mr. Weston, unasked, promised to get Frank over to join them, if possible; a proof of approbation and gratitude which could have been dispensed with.-Mr. Knightley was then obliged to say that he should be glad to see him; and Mr. Weston engaged to lose no time in writing, and spare no arguments to induce him to come.Het lijkt mij op sommige momenten best vervelend om een buurman als Mr. Weston te hebben. Wat denken jullie over hem?
Charles Dickens: A what? A big what?
The Doctor: Fan. Number one fan. That's me.
Charles Dickens: How exactly are you a 'fan'? In what way do you resemble a means of keeping oneself cool?
