- Chapter 3
- We meet Mr. Darcy for the first time at the assembly; he slights Lizzy by refusing to dance when Mr. Bingley offers to have them introduced for a dance: "She is tolerable; but not handsome enough to tempt me; and I am in no humour at present to give consequence to young ladies who are slighted by other men."

- Chapter 7
- Jane gets sick at Netherfield, and Lizzy goes out to check on her, walking three miles in the dirty weather to do so.

Mrs. Hurst ignores Lizzy and goes to take Darcy's other arm; he proposes to move to the avenue, where they will all be able to walk together. Lizzy declines.
