Quote #10

Her family had of late been exceedingly fluctuating. For many years of her life she had had two sons; but the crime and annihilation of Edward, a few weeks ago, had robbed her of one; the similar annihilation of Robert had left her for a fortnight without any; and now, by the resuscitation of Edward, she had one again.(50.2)

Mrs. Ferrars is more ludicrous than ever – her trading in and out of sons is kind of hilarious. She obviously treats her family somewhat like a baseball team; she only wants to keep the ones that might be advantageous in the long run. However, we're still glad that Edward has been accepted back into the family.
