(Sense and Sensibility on BART)

Reading Jane Austen:
My seatmate on his cellphone:
"Bitches be crazy."

I can't stop laughing at this one. Something like that has happened to me so many times, and I always want to respond the way that a character in the book would.

"Indeed, sir, though it be indisputable that oftentimes bitches do be crazy, yet I cannot but condemn that want of understanding that is merely craziness as well, rather than attempting, by constant application, to endeavour their improvement."

Was the gentleman referring to Elinor or Marianne?

No doubt he was referring to Mrs Ferrars.
