Quotes

[Jane and Lizzy are in the pantry, tying up sheaves of herbs to hang and dry]

Jane Bennet: No, I do assure you, this news does not affect me, truly, Lizzy.

[Lizzy smiles skeptically]

Jane Bennet: I am glad of one thing: that he doesn't bring any ladies. If it is merely a shooting party, we shall not see him often. Not that I am afraid of myself; but I dread other people's remarks, Lizzy.

Elizabeth Bennet: Then I shall venture none... however sorely I am tempted. After all, it is hard that the poor man can't come to a house he's legally rented without raising all this speculation.

Jane Bennet: That is just what I think.

Elizabeth Bennet: Then we shall leave him to himself.

Jane Bennet: Yes.

[Lizzy's smile turns mischievous. Jane looks up and sees the smirk]

Jane Bennet: Stop it, Lizzy!

[Then they both start to laugh]

[Mr. Bingley is coming to visit Longbourn for the first time in a year, and Mrs. Bennet is rushing about the room, ordering the girls how to behave]

Mrs. Bennet: Oh, sit up straight, Jane! Pull your shoulders back! A man could go a long way without seeing a figure like yours, if you could only make the most of it!

[Bingley has determined to go ask Jane to marry him]

Mr. Bingley: [to a manservant] Bring me my horse! At once! Quick, man!

[the music rises into a suspenseful allegro-crescendo as we watch Bingley ride towards Longbourn, and the women of Longbourn getting the news and preparing for him... ]

Mr. Bingley: [Mrs. Bennet is still in her night-clothes as she runs to Jane's room and cries out in panic:]

Mrs. Bennet: Jane! Jane! Oh, my dear Jane!

[She bursts into Jane's room. Jane is on the edge of her bed, in a white dress, slipping on some slippers]

Jane Bennet: Oh, what is the matter?

Mrs. Bennet: He is come! He is come!

Jane Bennet: [Bewildered] Who is come?

Mrs. Bennet: Mr. Bingley, of course! Make haste, make haste, hurry down! Oh gracious, you're not all dressed!

[Calling for the housekeeper:]

Mrs. Bennet: Hill! Hill! Oh, where is Hill?

[Mrs. Bennet runs through the halls of the house. She bursts into Lizzy's room, where the maid Sarah is doing Lizzy's hair]

Mrs. Bennet: Never mind, Sarah. You must come to Miss Bennet this moment. Come along, girl, and help her up with her gown, never mind Miss Lizzy's hair!

Kitty Bennet: Mama, mama! Where is my new locket that Lydia brought me from London? Mary, have you seen my new locket?

Mary Bennet: I shouldn't know it if I did see it. I care nothing for such baubles.

Mrs. Bennet: Oh, never mind your locket, girl! Jane, steady yourself. He is here, he is here!

Jane Bennet: Mama, Lizzy and I will be down as soon as we can. Send Kitty down, she is forwarder than any of us.

Mrs. Bennet: Oh, hang Kitty! What is she to do with it?

[Kitty stamps her foot and turns away, crying]

Mrs. Bennet: Jane, where is your muslin dress, dear? Oh, Hill, Hill! Where is Hill?

[Cut to sudden silence from the frantic music, as we see Bingley and the young ladies seated in the parlor; they are all extremely awkward and shy]

Elizabeth Bennet: Lady Catherine, in marrying your nephew, I should not consider myself as quitting that sphere. He is a gentleman, I am a gentleman's daughter. So far we are equal.

Mr. Bingley: [Furious] You tell me now she was in London all those months and you concealed it from me?

Mr. Darcy: Yes. I can offer no justification. It was an arrogant presumption based on a failure to recognise your true feelings and Miss Bennet's. I should never have interfered. It was very wrong of me, Bingley, and I apologise.

Mr. Bingley: [Stunned] You admit that you were in the wrong?

Mr. Darcy: Utterly and completely.

Mr. Bingley: Then... I have your blessing?

Mr. Darcy: [Amused] Do you need my blessing?

Mr. Bingley: No. But I should like to know I have it all the same.

Jane Bennet: No, seriously, Lizzy. When did you first know you were in love with Mr. Darcy?

Elizabeth Bennet: It came on so slowly I hardly know... but I believe I must date it from the time I first saw his wonderful grounds at Pemberley.

Mr. Darcy: I may say the disclosure had quite the opposite effect to the one she intended. It taught me to hope as I had scarcely ever allowed myself to hope before.

Elizabeth Bennet: I am only resolved to act in a manner which will constitute my own happiness without reference to you or any person so wholly unconnected with me.
