Adelaide Palliser aggressively pursues Gerard Maule after bluntly rejecting Lord Fawn's fumbling attempts at courtship. Bonteen is furious after losing the Chancellor of the Exchequer post he was certain would be his, and the Prime Minister tries to placate him by denying a post to Phineas Finn. Bonteen travels to Prague on Lizzie Eustace's behalf and gains information which may lead to proof that Emilius is a bigamist. When he finds out that he's being investigated, Emilius offers to settle his claim to Lady Eustace's wealth, but Bonteen dismisses him, saying that he will soon have enough proof to put him in prison. Later at a club frequented by Members of Parliament a still-angry Bonteen goes out of his way to grossly insult Finn, but violence is prevented by the timely arrival of the Prince of Wales.

Adelaide Palliser: You've no need to look so pleased with yourself.
Gerard Maule: Oh, but I'm not. On the contrary Miss Palliser, I am so conscious of my defects I can never presume to offer myself as a husband, least of all to a decent girl like you.
