    could be more real than

    Emma's father: Why should she give up being your governess only to be married?
    Emma :I am grown now. She can not put up with my ill humors forever. She must wish
    for children of her own.

    father:You have no ill humors.
    Your own mother, God rest her, could be no more real than Miss.Talyor. Can she
    really wish to give life to a mewling infant who will import disease each time it
    enters the house? No. I said poor Miss Talyor, and poor, indeed, she is.

    Man(entering to the room):As an old friend of the family i had to ask as soon as i got
    back. Who cried the most at the wedding? (From the movie Emma)

    Could anyone explain what this sentence in pink means? Thanks alot.

    He means to say that Miss Taylor has been just like a mother to her.
