Storyline

Amanda arrives at Netherfield shortly after Jane. She realizes that things don't go according to plan. While Jane recovers from a fever, Bingley tells Amanda of his passion for her to which Amanda can only mutter that she is interested in women to keep Bingley at bay. Amanda's redirection of Bingley's feelings seem to be working as Bingley apparently shows an interest in Jane. When Mr. Collins arrives at Longbourn, Amanda faces yet another challenge to keep Jane free for Mr. Bingley. The appearance of Wickham is also causing Amanda difficulties to keep the purpose of the novel alive. Written by R

Trivia

Mr Bingley's phrase "steer the punt from the Cambridge end", to describe lesbians, refers to the different practices used by Cambridge and Oxford university students when propelling punts on their respective rivers. Cambridge students tend to stand on the raised platform at the back of the boat, whereas Oxford students more often stand in the well of the boat with the raised platform at the front of the boat. If the boat happens to hit another boat or the river-bank, the well of the boat is a safer place to be standing as there is a greater chance that the punter will fall into the boat rather than out of the boat into the water. Evidently Mr Bingley is of the Oxford persuasion in that he regards the Cambridge practice as the unusual one. See more »

Quotes

Amanda Price: [singing] When you're alone... and life is making you lonely you can always go, downtown. When you got worries, all the noise and the hurry seem to help I know, downtown. Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city. La-la-la, la-la-la and the neon lights are pretty. How can you lose? The lights are much brighter there. You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares and go downtown. Everything's waiting for you.
