"Nice objected to that idea. Since she was talking to Nick, even under these circumstances, she meticulously parsed out casual speech and polite speech to the appropriate listener; Nick received the latter."

 

::eyeballs and brain melting::

 

I'm pretty sure that this is just saying that Nice objected to Nick's idea, but that her words remained polite/formal rather than more casual (which is still an awkward way of putting it). I hate it when I'm moving happily along in this book and then stumble across a speed bump made of words.
