  • As I was looking out of window that same evening, it surprised me, and made me rather uneasy, to see Mr. Micawber and Uriah Heep walk past, arm in arm: Uriah humbly sensible of the honour that was done him, and Mr. Micawber taking a bland delight in extending his patronage to Uriah.
  • Mr. Spenlow, settling his chin in his cravat and rubbing it softly, went over the items with a deprecatory air — as if it were all Jorkins’s doing — and handed it back to Tiffey with a bland sigh.
  • I protested that I had no views of that sort, and that no such scheme was entertained in my behalf by anybody; but Uriah insisted on blandly replying to all my assurances, ’Oh, yes, Master Copperfield, I should think you would, indeed!’ and, ’Oh, indeed, Master Copperfield, I should think you would, certainly!’ over and over again.
