Colonel Brandon was now as happy, as all those who best loved him, believed he deserved to be;—in Marianne he was consoled for every past affliction;—her regard and her society restored his mind to animation, and his spirits to cheerfulness; and that Marianne found her own happiness in forming his, was equally the persuasion and delight of each observing friend.

  • Colonel Brandon: *brings hot flowers that he prob tended himself, and prob despite the fact that roses are freaking hard to grow and it cost his gardener 'Best Bloom' in the local flower show because he actually puts thought into what she likes and thinks she deserves the best he can give, also supplies her with music because he knows what she's capable of*
  • Willoughby: *rips up some flowers from some random field without any thought except to get into Marianne's pantaloons coz he's a pig*
  • Marianne: Dang. Who do I choose?
