  • Mr. Bennet thinks he's totally absurd, and he gets his kicks out of listening to him make a fool out of himself.
  • After dinner, Mr. Collins reads to the girls from a book of advice about how to be a proper woman (smile and shut up, basically).
  • Lydia, the youngest of the Bennet girls, is so not into it. Well, none of them are. But she actually shows it.
