  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Mr. Darcy: Do you talk by rule, then, when you are dancing?
      Elizabeth Bennet: Yes, sometimes it is best. Then we may enjoy the advantage of saying as little as possible.
      Mr. Darcy: Do you consult your own feelings in this case, or seek to gratify mine?
      Elizabeth Bennet: Both, I imagine. We are each of an unsocial taciturn disposition, unwilling to speak unless we expect to say something that will amaze the whole room.
      Mr. Darcy: This is no very striking resemblance of your own character, I am sure.

    • Mr. Wickham: Mr. Collins's conversation is very, um… wholesome.
      Elizabeth Bennet: And there's plenty to be had of it, I assure you.

    • Mr. Collins: You may imagine, Sir, how happy I am on every occasion to offer those little delicate compliments which are always acceptable to ladies.
      Mr. Bennet: It is fortunate for you, Mr. Collins, that you possess such an extraordinary talent for flattering with delicacy. May I ask whether these pleasing attentions proceed from the impulse of the moment or are they the result of previous study?
      Mr. Collins: They arise chiefly from what is passing at the time, Sir. I do sometimes amuse myself by writing down and arranging such little compliments as may be adapted to ordinary occasions, but I try to give them as unstudied an air as possible.
      Mr. Bennet: Excellent!

    • Mr. Collins: What a charming apartment you have here, Mrs. Philips. Upon my word, it reminds me greatly of a small summer breakfast room at Rosings.
      Mrs. Philips: Does it, indeed, sir? I'm much obliged to you, I'm sure.
      Jane Bennet: I'm sure that Mr. Collins wishes to pay a compliment, aunt.
      Mrs. Philips: Does he? I see.

    • Jane Bennet: I believe you like Mr. Wickham, Lizzie.
      Elizabeth Bennet: I confess I do like him. I do not see how anyone could not like him.

    • Mrs. Bennet: Ah, you look very well, Lizzie! You'll never be as pretty as your sister, Jane, but I will say you look very well, indeed!

    • Lydia Bennet: Lizzie, I hope you will not keep Wickham to yourself all night; Kitty and I want to dance with him as well, you know.
      Elizabeth Bennet: I promise I shall not. Even if I wished to, I could not. I have to dance at least the first two with Mr. Collins.
      Lydia Bennet: Oh yes, he's threatened to dance with us all.

    • Mr. Darcy: If you are not otherwise engaged, would you do me the honour of dancing the next with me, Miss Bennet?
      Elizabeth Bennet: Why, I - had not - I - thank you, yes. (Mr. Darcy walks away)
      Elizabeth Bennet: (to Charlotte Lucas) Oh! Why could I not think of an excuse? Hateful man! I promised myself I would never dance with him.
