Lydia: How can Jane and Elizabeth act perfectly fine at a time like this? I am so sad that the regiments are leaving town today.
Lydia: I got a letter from Mrs. Forster! She has invited me to go to Brighton with her and her husband with all of the regiments!
Kitty: How come I wasn't invited also? I am older than Lydia and am friends with Mrs. Forster too, it isn't fair that she was invited and not me.
Elizabeth: Dad, please don't let Lydia go to Brighton. She is too much of a flirt and doesn't know how to act properly.
Mr. Bennet: She needs to go so she isn't out embarrassing our family here.
Elizabeth: She already does embarrass this family. At least teach her how to a lady is to act. She is causing others to leave our family because of her actions.
Mr. Bennet: How Lydia acts is not going to affect you and Jane. Besides, the men there will be far more interested in other women and will not pay any attention to Lydia because she is too poor. You have nothing to worry about, Lizzy.
The day of the regiments' leaving while Elizabeth gave her goodbyes to the regiments...
Elizabeth: I might add that I spent three weeks at Rosings with Colonel Fitswilliams and Mr. Darcy. Are you acquainted with Colonel Fitzwilliams? I am also getting to know Mr. Darcy much better and his manners have improved.
They parted without any intention of ever seeing each other again.
Wickham: I am glad to hear that he is finally beginning to act right. His pride and actions have caused me to suffer.
Consequence: Lydia's trip to Brighton could end horribly and could most likely bring the family more embarrassment and problems than it has ever before. Lydia could return with a husband, but she probably won't because she is too poor. Elizabeth could have realized all of this about Lydia after reading the letter from Mr. Darcy. Mr. Darcy's letter opened her eyes to see how her sisters truly acted and how embarrassing they were to their family.
