3. "And my husband cannot even tell one of my gowns from another!" (Mrs Allan / Northanger Abbey)
4. "His hair cut. Of course, imperative business indeed!" (Mr Knightley / Emma)

  1. Hey, I did pretty well! That's neat--usually I don't score very high on these kinds of games. I suspect that's because this one focused exclusively on Jane Austen ;) Thanks for organizing this, Naomi!
