I only ever read the first couple of books in the series and it was so long ago I can barely remember anything about it but I still found it highly amusing.
From the Anne of Avonlea section:
"Marilla and Mrs. Lynde: Gee, that Anne and Gilbert are hanging out a lot together — well, as much as they can considering how far away he works and all. Bet they’ll be getting married soon.
Anne: Oh, you silly old biddies!
Gilbert: Anne, don’t you think they’ve got a point?
