Quote #7

Mrs. Walker was flushed; she wore an excited air. "It is really too dreadful," she said. "That girl must not do this sort of thing. She must not walk here with you two men. Fifty people have noticed her."

Winterbourne raised his eyebrows. "I think it's a pity to make too much fuss about it."

"It's a pity to let the girl ruin herself!" (2.90-2)

Why so flushed, Walker? We think you're jealous. Oh no? Well, name a time in the book when fifty people notice you.

Quote #8

Daisy gave a violent laugh. "I never heard anything so stiff! If this is improper, Mrs. Walker," she pursued, "then I am all improper, and you must give me up. Goodbye; I hope you'll have a lovely ride!" and, with Mr. Giovanelli, who made a triumphantly obsequious salute, she turned away. (2.113)

Daisy the Hypocrite Slayer: there are no vampires, but it's still fun to watch.

Quote #9

"You're a very nice girl; but I wish you would flirt with me, and me only," said Winterbourne. (2.156)

We call this The Winterbourne Principle: According to Winterbourne, it's only wrong when it applies to anyone other than Winterbourne.
