Trivia

The brown gown with a sheer white muslin overdress that Jennifer Ehle (Elizabeth Bennet) wears during the evening party at Mrs. Philips's house is the same costume Lindsay Duncan (Lady Bertram) wears in the scene during which Fanny reads from the newspaper to the Bertram family in Mansfield Park (1999).

Goofs

When at the Netherfield Ball, and Mary starts her second song at the piano, her father is seen to get up from the table to stop her. You can see Mary at the piano in the background, but, despite the audio implying she is supposed to be singing, her mouth is not moving and remains closed throughout that entire shot. See more »

Quotes

Mr. Darcy: Do you talk by rule, then, when you're 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: [Drily] This is no very striking resemblance of your own character, I'm sure.
