Chorus enters. Jane: I am fine, Lizzy. You must stop asking me. Mr and Mrs Bennet enters. Mrs Bennet. Oh I cannot bear the sight of Lady Locus's. All she does is talk of Charlotte and her marriage. To think that I should see that woman take my place as mistress of the house.
My dear, do not give way to such gloomy thoughts. Let us hope that I may be a survivor.
