    Can't understand Mr Darcy's words

    Pride & Prejudice - 2005 Movie Script

    I can't fully undersstand Mr Darcy's words (see page 75 in the above link to the movie script):
    "Could you expect me to rejoice in the inferiority of your circumstances?" - Will you please rephrase it in simpler language or interpret it?
    Thanks in advance.
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Here it is in plain terms:
    "Do you expect me to be happy with you and your family's lack of wealth and connections?"
