  • Steerforth take off to the boat-house and interrupt the news that Ham and Emily are engaged.
  • Steerforth charms everyone – but hints at being a jerk by saying that Emily is good-lookin and she shouldn’t marry a ‘knuckle head’ like Ham.
  • We should never forget that there is a painting of Mrs. Dartle in a guest bedroom out there in the world
