Emma (Literature)

"Just, Mac's had this project all week and Parker's all alone. I think we should invite her along."
"Um, how very Emma of you."
"Did you just make a Jane Austen reference? It's official, the end of days are upon us."

This classic novel by Jane Austen revolves around the life and matchmaking attempts of one Emma Woodhouse. Bored with only her eccentric father for company, Emma takes pity on her new friend Harriet and tries to find her a rich husband. Naturally, nineteenth century-style hijinks ensue. Logan apparently thinks that Veronica inviting Parker to come bowling with them is on par with Emma's machinations. We're not even going to speculate what Logan has been doing reading Jane Austen, but what he doesn't realize is that if Veronica is Emma and Parker is Harriet, that makes Logan scheming cad Frank Churchill and Piz all-around good guy Mr. Knightley who gets the girl. Hm. Come to think of it, we're okay with that comparison.
