This quote is directed to Emma by Mrs. Martin in response to Emma's question regarding Mr. Martin's physical appearance.

"Oh! not handsome—not at all handsome. I thought him very plain at first, but I do not think him so plain now. One does not, you know, after a time. But did you never see him? He is in Highbury every now and then, and he is sure to ride through every week in his way to Kingston. He has passed you very often."
