(Mr. Knightley is talking about Robert Martin's crush over Harriet Smith.)
Mr. Knightley: Mr. Robert Martin is desperately in love with your Miss Smith and means to marry her. There. I have surprised you for once. He came to speak to me about it, and despite my doubts about the match I gave my blessing. This was the day before yesterday. I must say I'm surprised your friend has been able to keep the good news to herself. I thought he would have spoken yesterday, he was so determined.
Emma: How do you know that Mr. Martin did not voice his thoughts yesterday?
Mr. Knightley: Well, I do not know it absolutely. I thought she spent the whole day with you.
Emma: Now I will tell you something. Mr. Martin did speak yesterday. That is, he wrote and he was refused.
Mr. Knightley: Then she is an even greater 1)simpleton than I thought!
Emma: Oh, of course, it's 2)incomprehensible that a woman would ever refuse an offer of marriage. A man imagines a woman ready for anyone who asks her.
Mr. Knightley: A man does not imagine any such thing. Harriet Smith refuse Robert Martin? It's madness. Maybe you are mistaken.
Emma: I saw her answer. Nothing could be clearer.
Mr. Knightley: You saw her answer? You wrote it. You persuaded her to refuse him. Emma, look at me! This is your doing. I am sure of it. You could never lie to me with any success.
Emma: Mr. Martin is a very respectable young man, I am sure. But I will not agree that he is Harriet's equal.
Mr. Knightley: No, he is not her equal. He is far her superior.
Mr. Knightley: Harriet Smith is the 3)natural daughter of nobody-knows-whom. She's not a sensible girl and has been taught nothing useful. She has no experience and little wit. She is pretty, good tempered, maybe. But that is all. I felt that in all respects he could do no worse. But he was so in love with her, he IS so in love with her, that he would not be reasoned with. I even thought of you, I thought “Even Emma will think that this is a good match.”
Emma: I cannot believe you know so little of Emma as to say such a thing. A farmer, a good match for MY 4)intimate friend? It would be a 5)degradation.
Mr. Knightley: A degradation? For 6)illegitimacy and ignorance to be married to a respectable, intelligent farmer?
Emma: There can scarcely be any doubt that her father WAS a gentleman, and a gentleman of fortune. Nothing has been 7)begrudged her. Why should the child pay for the offences of others? Harriet IS a gentleman's daughter, she associates with gentlemen's daughters. She is therefore superior to your Robert Martin.
Mr. Knightley: Emma, Emma, we live in the real world, where children do pay for the offence of their parents, and it does not appear to be in their plans to introduce Harriet into their society, whoever they may be.
Emma: But we live here in Highbury, where we treat people with the respect and 8)courtesy they deserve.
Mr. Knightley: Harriet's friends, whoever they may be, thought Mrs. Goddard's boarding school and Mrs. Goddard's company good enough for Harriet. And Harriet also thought it good enough until you encouraged her to think above her station. She was as happy as possible with the Martins in the summer. And Robert has no vanity. He would not have proposed if he thought that she did not favour him. I know that she must have encouraged him.
Emma: Well then, let us, as you say, live in the real world, where men of course always reject a girl with a pretty face in favour of one with a well informed mind.
Mr. Knightley: What?
Emma: Oh, no, no, no. I bow to your superior knowledge, your 16 years more experience. You must know best. Harriet, with her good looks and her easy 9)temperament will be right at the back of the queue with your sex when it comes to choosing a mate. Now we have both made our argument, let us not quarrel.
(Mr. Knightley leaves the house and comes back.)
Emma: I am so pleased you have come back, for we will always be friends.
Mr. Knightley: No, I came back to say this, Emma. As you make no secret of your matchmaking, I assume that you would not have taken this 10)drastic step unless you had another suitor in mind. And as a friend, I will just hint to you that if Elton is the chosen man, Elton will not do. He knows he is a very handsome young man and will never marry cheaply. I have heard him speak with great 11)animation of a large family of young ladies who all have 20,000 apiece. Harriet and Robert are not your playthings, your dolls, to be told what to do and to marry under the table at your bidding. They're flesh and blood! And one day you will bitterly regret your 12)meddling.
