- David is thinks he’s nailed acting older than he really is… until he meets Steerforth’s butler, Littimer.
- 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
