Page 96 - I'll tell thee, Fainall, she once used me with that insolence that in revenge I took her to pieces, sifted her, and separated her failings: I studied 'em and got 'em by rote.

Page 95 - I am of another opinion. The greater the coxcomb, always the more the scandal: for a woman who is not a fool can have but one reason for associating with a man who is one.
Page 141 - This is a vile Dog, I see that already. No Offence ! Ha, ha, ha, to him ; to him, Petulant, smoke him.
