"(...) It can be only weak, irresolute characters (whose happiness must be always at the mercy of chance), who will suffer an unfortunate acquaintance to be an inconvenience, an oppression for ever."

… and the according passage from the book (I think it’s worth noting that in the book, this is a conversation strictly between Mr. Knightley and Mrs. Elton, with no witnesses whatsover)

“Married women, you know, may be safely autorized. Leave it all to me. I will invite your guests.”

“No,” - he calmly replied, - “there is but one married woman in the world whom I can ever allow to invite what guests she pleases to Donwell, and that one is -“

”- Mrs. Weston, I suppose,” interrupted Mrs. Elton, rather mortified.

“No - Mrs. Knightley; - and, till she is in being, I will manage such matters myself.”
