1 The girls stared at their father.
2 It was at Sir William Lucas's, where a large party were assembled.
3 By nature inoffensive, friendly, and obliging, his presentation at St. James's had made him courteous.
4 "You are dancing with the only handsome girl in the room," said Mr. Darcy, looking at the eldest Miss Bennet.
5 He was at the same time haughty, reserved, and fastidious, and his manners, though well-bred, were not inviting.
6 Mr. Bingley had not been of age two years, when he was tempted by an accidental recommendation to look at Netherfield House.
7 She danced four dances with him at Meryton; she saw him one morning at his own house, and has since dined with him in company four times.
8 He was quite young, wonderfully handsome, extremely agreeable, and, to crown the whole, he meant to be at the next assembly with a large party.
9 But I can assure you," she added, "that Lizzy does not lose much by not suiting his fancy; for he is a most disagreeable, horrid man, not at all worth pleasing.
10 Mr. Darcy had at first scarcely allowed her to be pretty; he had looked at her without admiration at the ball; and when they next met, he looked at her only to criticise.
11 Mr. Bingley had soon made himself acquainted with all the principal people in the room; he was lively and unreserved, danced every dance, was angry that the ball closed so early, and talked of giving one himself at Netherfield.

15 Elizabeth listened in silence, but was not convinced; their behaviour at the assembly had not been calculated to please in general; and with more quickness of observation and less pliancy of temper than her sister, and with a judgement too unassailed by any attention to herself, she was very little disposed to approve them.
