At the beginning of the passage, we learned that Collins attempted to court a lady he has only known for three days with deliberate intentions. He began his proposal by exaggerating his gratitude that he has the honor of courting her with her mother’s permission. He flattered her by praising her appearance, manner, and personality while he fibs.
I would like to ask both of you to keep your hands in this position until the end of the speech, and believe me [Groom] you will regret it if you don’t. I would like to also thank you for finally admitting after all the time growing up, that I am truly the best man! You know, they say that being asked to be the best man is like being asked to make love to the Queen…It’s a great honor but no one really wants to do it. But here I am, and I think you will all agree with me that my first job, of getting this man to the wedding, on time, and sober, was a complete success. Now it’s time for my second job, the speech.

His initial reaction to Mrs Bennet's suggestion of one of their daughters to be married to the new gentleman is that he would be prepared for the suitor to be Elizabeth. “though I must throw in a good word for my little Lizzy.” Although having five other daughters and Elizabeth not being the eldest he insists on Elizabeth being more suitable.

Salieri was convinced that Mozart was indeed loved by God and was God’s chosen one over him because of Mozart’s brilliance in music, making Salieri think of himself as ordinary and mediocre. Salieri was highly affected by being ‘mediocre’ compared to Mozart, even as he ages to an old man in a wheelchair. But, there’s still a downfall for all geniuses. In the story, Salieri is always the proper courtier. He worked really hard at both his music (which he hoped had pleased God) and also his political skills until he reached where he wanted to be.

We’re together now and I feel like the luckiest girl in the world.
