Lost in Austen (TV Mini-Series 2008) Poster

Hugh Bonneville: Mr. Bennet


  • Lady Catherine de Bourgh : Well? What do you have to say for yourself?

    Mrs. Bennet : I say this. You are a prig, Madam, a pander and a common bully. And you cheat at cards! Do you suppose you may enter my house and brandish your hat at me thus? I have a mind to turn you upside down and use you to scrape out Ambrosia's sty.

    Lady Catherine de Bourgh : Madam, I take my leave of you.

    Mrs. Bennet : Do! Or I shall take you out and set to scraping! Scrape, scrape, scrape, I shall go!

    Mr. Bennet : Tally-ho, wife!

    Mr. Collins : Mrs. Bennet, you must desist!

    Jane Bennet : Oh be quiet, you silly man. Do you suppose Mama would permit her daughters to be married to your brothers when before her very eyes is the specimen of you?

    Mr. Bennet : [after Lady Catherine and Mr. Collins leave]  Tonight Mrs. Bennet, with your permission, I think I shall sleep in our bedroom.

  • Mr. Bennet : The time has come for me to tie you well... and let you go.

  • Mrs. Bennet : Are you not happy that Jane is wed to Mr. Collins?

    Mr. Bennet : Happy? That my kindest, prettiest daughter has embarked upon an adulthood of suffication to such a preening Caliban? Happy, Madam - that she should live in subjugation to such an enormity? I would rather sleep in a drain than consent to be happy!
