    Film Subtitles of Pride and Prejudice

    00:02:14,600 --> 00:02:16,556 Lydia! Kitty!

    00:02:51,560 --> 00:02:54,233 My dear Mr Bennet, have you heard?

    00:02:54,400 --> 00:02:58,916 Netherfield Park is let at last. Do you not want to know who has taken it? 00:02:59,120 --> 00:03:04,877 As you wish to tell me, my dear, I doubt I have any choice in the matter. 00:03:10,360 --> 00:03:13,397 Kitty, what have I told you about listening at the door? 00:03:13,600 --> 00:03:16,273 There's a Mr Bingley arrived from the North. 00:03:16,440 --> 00:03:19,557 - Five thousand a year! - Really?

    00:03:19,720 --> 00:03:21,278 - He's single!- Who's single?

    00:03:21,480 --> 00:03:24,040 A Mr Bingley, apparently. Kitty!

    00:03:24,200 --> 00:03:25,997 How can that possibly affect them?

    00:03:26,200 --> 00:03:28,236 Mr Bennet, how can you be so tiresome?

    00:03:28,400 --> 00:03:30,675 You know he must marry one of them.

    00:03:30,840 --> 00:03:32,796 That is his design in settling here?

    00:03:33,000 --> 00:03:35,116 You must go and visit him at once.

    00:03:35,320 --> 00:03:38,118 Good heavens. People.

    00:03:40,480 --> 00:03:44,393 For we may not visit if you do not, as you well know, Mr Bennet. 00:03:44,560 --> 00:03:48,599 - Are you listening? You never listen. - You must, Papa! At once! 00:03:48,760 --> 00:03:51,194 There's no need. I already have.

    00:03:51,920 --> 00:03:53,717 - You have? - When?

    00:03:53,880 --> 00:03:57,316 Oh, Mr Bennet, how can you tease me so?

    00:03:57,520 --> 00:03:59,795 Have you no compassion for my poor nerves?

    00:04:00,000 --> 00:04:03,436 You mistake me, my dear. I have the highest respect for them. 00:04:03,640 --> 00:04:06,757 They've been my constant companions these twenty years. 00:04:06,920 --> 00:04:07,875 Papa!

    00:04:08,080 --> 00:04:09,274 - Is he amiable? - Who?

    00:04:09,440 --> 00:04:11,715 - Is he handsome? - He's sure to be.

    00:04:11,920 --> 00:04:14,957 With 5,000 a year, it would not matter if he had warts. 00:04:15,120 --> 00:04:16,439 Who's got warts?

    00:04:16,600 --> 00:04:19,717 I will consent to his marrying whichever girl he chooses. 00:04:19,920 --> 00:04:23,959 - So will he come to the ball tomorrow? - I believe so. 00:04:25,160 --> 00:04:28,835 -Mr Bennet!- I have to have your muslin!

    00:04:29,000 --> 00:04:31,719 - I'll lend you my green slippers!- They were mine. 00:04:31,880 --> 00:04:35,475 - I'll do your mending for a week.- I'll retrim your new bonnet. 00:04:35,680 --> 00:04:37,318 Two weeks I'll do it for.

    00:05:14,160 --> 00:05:17,197 It's not the same!It's not the same.

    00:05:26,880 --> 00:05:28,757 I can't breathe.

    00:05:31,480 --> 00:05:34,074 I think one of my toes just came off.

    00:05:41,880 --> 00:05:44,758 If every man does not end the evening in love with you, 00:05:44,920 --> 00:05:46,638 then I'm no judge of beauty.

    00:05:46,840 --> 00:05:49,718 -Or men.- No, they are far too easy to judge. 00:05:49,880 --> 00:05:51,359 They're not all bad.

    00:05:51,520 --> 00:05:54,273 Humourless poppycocks, in my limited experience. 00:05:54,440 --> 00:05:56,635 One day, someone will catch your eye,

    00:05:56,840 --> 00:05:59,115 and then you'll have to watch your tongue.

    00:06:19,480 --> 00:06:20,674 How good of you to come.

    00:06:20,840 --> 00:06:23,400 Which of the painted peacocks is our Mr Bingley? 00:06:23,560 --> 00:06:26,199 He's on the right. On the left is his sister. 00:06:26,360 --> 00:06:31,195 -The person with the quizzical brow?- That is his good friend, Mr Darcy. 00:06:31,400 --> 00:06:35,598 -He looks miserable, poor soul.- He may be, but poor he is not. 00:06:35,760 --> 00:06:36,715 Tell me.

    00:06:36,920 --> 00:06:39,559 10,000 a year, and he owns half of Derbyshire. 00:06:39,720 --> 00:06:41,676 The miserable half.

    00:07:07,960 --> 00:07:12,636 Mr Bennet, you must introduce him to the girls immediately. 00:07:13,520 --> 00:07:15,238 Smile at Mr Bingley. Smile.

    00:07:31,120 --> 00:07:32,075 Mary.

    00:07:32,280 --> 00:07:35,078 Mr Bingley, my eldest daughter you know.

    00:07:36,160 --> 00:07:40,438 Mrs Bennet, Miss Jane Bennet, Elizabeth and Miss Mary Bennet. 00:07:40,600 --> 00:07:44,195 It is a pleasure. I have two others, but they're already dancing. 00:07:44,360 --> 00:07:46,635 I'm delighted to make your acquaintance.

    00:07:46,840 --> 00:07:51,914 And may I introduce Mr Darcy of Pemberley in Derbyshire. 00:08:10,760 --> 00:08:12,876 How do you like it here in Hertfordshire?

    00:08:13,080 --> 00:08:14,957 Very much.

    00:08:15,120 --> 00:08:18,317 The library at Netherfield, I've heard, is one of the finest. 00:08:18,480 --> 00:08:22,758 It fills me with guilt. I'm not a good reader. I prefer being out of doors. 00:08:22,960 --> 00:08:25,394 Oh, I mean, I can read, of course.

    00:08:25,600 --> 00:08:28,876 And I'm not suggesting you can't read out of doors. 00:08:29,040 --> 00:08:32,635 I wish I read more, but there eem to be so many other things to do. 00:08:32,800 --> 00:08:34,995 That's exactly what I meant.

    00:08:38,000 --> 00:08:41,754 Mama, Mama! You will never, ever believe what we're about to tell you. 00:08:41,920 --> 00:08:44,434 -Tell me!- She's going to take the veil.

    00:08:44,600 --> 00:08:46,875 -The regiment are coming!- Officers?

    00:08:47,040 --> 00:08:50,157 They're going to be stationed the whole winter, right here. 00:08:50,320 --> 00:08:52,754 -Officers?- As far as the eye can see.

    00:08:58,960 --> 00:09:02,714 Oh, look. Jane's dancing with Mr Bingley.

    00:09:02,880 --> 00:09:04,313 Mr Bennet.

    00:09:17,920 --> 00:09:21,833 -Do you dance, Mr Darcy?- Not if I can help it. 00:09:39,960 --> 00:09:42,918 I didn't know you were coming to see me. What's the matter?

     1

    00:09:43,120 --> 00:09:48,558 We are a long way from Grosvenor Square, are we not, Mr Darcy? 00:09:48,720 --> 00:09:50,836 I've never seen so many pretty girls.

    00:09:51,040 --> 00:09:53,395 You were dancing with the only handsome girl.

    00:09:53,560 --> 00:09:56,438 She is the most beautiful creature I have ever beheld. 00:09:56,600 --> 00:10:00,798 -But her sister Elizabeth is agreeable.- Perfectly tolerable. 00:10:00,960 --> 00:10:05,078 Not handsome enough to tempt me. Return to your partner and enjoy her smiles. 00:10:05,240 --> 00:10:07,595 You're wasting your time with me.

    00:10:11,400 --> 00:10:15,757 Count your blessings, Lizzie. If he liked you, you'd have to talk to him. 00:10:15,960 --> 00:10:17,154 Precisely.

    00:10:17,360 --> 00:10:19,954 I wouldn't dance with him for all of Derbyshire, 00:10:20,120 --> 00:10:22,395 let alone the miserable half.

    00:11:22,480 --> 00:11:23,879 Wait!

    00:11:40,120 --> 00:11:45,399 -I enjoyed that so much, Miss Lucas.- How well you dance, Mr Bingley. 00:11:45,560 --> 00:11:47,755 I've never enjoyed a dance so much.

    00:11:47,960 --> 00:11:50,679 My daughter Jane is a splendid dancer, is she not? 00:11:50,840 --> 00:11:52,717 She is indeed.

    00:11:53,640 --> 00:11:56,757 Your friend Miss Lucas is a most amusing young woman. 00:11:56,920 --> 00:11:58,558 Oh, yes, I adore her.

    00:11:58,720 --> 00:12:02,713 -It is a pity she's not more handsome.- Mama!

    00:12:02,880 --> 00:12:06,236 Oh, but Lizzie would never admit that she's plain. 00:12:06,400 --> 00:12:10,473 Of course, it's my Jane who's considered the beauty of the county. 00:12:10,640 --> 00:12:11,595 Mama, please!

    00:12:11,800 --> 00:12:14,758 When she was 15, a gentleman was so much in love with her, 00:12:14,920 --> 00:12:17,036 I was sure he would make her an offer.

    00:12:17,200 --> 00:12:20,636 However, he did write her some very pretty verses. 00:12:20,800 --> 00:12:21,994 And that put paid to it.

    00:12:22,160 --> 00:12:25,436 I wonder who discovered the power of poetry in driving away love. 00:12:25,640 --> 00:12:28,837 -I thought poetry was the food of love.- Of a fine, stout love. 00:12:29,000 --> 00:12:32,356 But if it is only a vague inclination, one poor sonnet will kill it. 00:12:32,560 --> 00:12:35,438 So, what do you recommend to encourage affection? 00:12:36,360 --> 00:12:42,117 Dancing. Even if one's partner is barely tolerable. 00:13:03,640 --> 00:13:06,996 Mr Bingley is just what a young man ought to be. 00:13:07,160 --> 00:13:10,516 -Sensible, good-humored...- Handsome, conveniently rich... 00:13:10,680 --> 00:13:13,399 Marriage should not be driven by thoughts of money. 00:13:13,560 --> 00:13:15,676 Only deep love will persuade me to marry.

    00:13:15,880 --> 00:13:20,317 -Which is why I'll end up an old maid.- Do you really believe he liked me? 00:13:20,480 --> 00:13:23,836 He danced with you most of the night, and stared at you the rest. 00:13:24,000 --> 00:13:26,878 I give you leave to like him. You've liked many stupider. 00:13:27,080 --> 00:13:30,197 You're a great deal too apt to like people in general. 00:13:30,360 --> 00:13:32,237 All the world is good in your eyes.

    00:13:32,440 --> 00:13:35,557 Not his friend. I still can't believe what he said about you. 00:13:35,760 --> 00:13:38,035 Mr Darcy?

    00:13:38,200 --> 00:13:42,796 I'd more easily forgive his vanity had he not wounded mine. 00:13:42,960 --> 00:13:45,633 But no matter. I doubt we shall ever speak again. 00:14:15,880 --> 00:14:17,916 He danced with Miss Lucas.

    00:14:18,080 --> 00:14:19,877 We were all there, dear.

    00:14:20,040 --> 00:14:22,076 It is a shame she's not more handsome.

    00:14:22,240 --> 00:14:24,879 There's a spinster in the making and no mistake. 00:14:25,040 --> 00:14:27,600 The fourth with a Miss King of little standing, 00:14:27,760 --> 00:14:29,796 and the fifth again with Jane.

    00:14:30,000 --> 00:14:33,117 If he had any compassion, he would've sprained his ankle. 00:14:33,280 --> 00:14:34,395 The way you carry on,

    00:14:34,560 --> 00:14:37,518 you'd think our girls look forward to a grand inheritance. 00:14:37,680 --> 00:14:39,875 When you die, which may be very soon,

    00:14:40,040 --> 00:14:44,397 they will be left without a roof over their head nor a penny to their name. 00:14:44,560 --> 00:14:47,996 -Please, it's ten in the morning.- A letter to Miss Bennet, ma'am. 00:14:48,160 --> 00:14:51,516 From Netherfield Hall.

    00:14:51,720 --> 00:14:55,235 Praise the Lord. We are saved!

    00:14:55,440 --> 00:15:00,195 Make haste, Jane, make haste. Oh, happy day!

    00:15:01,640 --> 00:15:04,074 It is from Caroline Bingley.

    00:15:04,280 --> 00:15:08,796 She has invited me to dine with her.

    00:15:08,960 --> 00:15:11,918 -Her brother will be dining out.- Dining out?

    00:15:12,080 --> 00:15:13,957 -Can I take the carriage?- Let me see.

    00:15:14,160 --> 00:15:17,675 -It is too far to walk.- This is unaccountable of him. 00:15:17,880 --> 00:15:19,677 Mama, the carriage for Jane?

    00:15:21,720 --> 00:15:25,156 Certainly not. She'll go on horseback.

    00:15:25,880 --> 00:15:28,075 Horseback!

    00:15:42,840 --> 00:15:44,558 Lizzie.

    00:15:44,760 --> 00:15:47,957 Now she'll have to stay the night, exactly as I predicted. 00:15:48,120 --> 00:15:51,157 Good grief, woman, your skills in the art of matchmaking 00:15:51,320 --> 00:15:53,117 are positively occult.

    00:15:53,280 --> 00:15:57,717 Though I don't think, Mama, you can take credit for making it rain. 00:16:02,400 --> 00:16:05,756 "My friends will not hear of me returning home until I am better. 00:16:05,920 --> 00:16:09,833 Excepting a sore throat, a fever and a headache, nothing is wrong with me." 00:16:10,000 --> 00:16:14,994 If Jane does die it will be a comfort to know it was in pursuit of Mr Bingley. 00:16:15,200 --> 00:16:17,395 People do not die of colds.

    00:16:17,560 --> 00:16:20,836 But she may perish with the shame of having such a mother. 00:16:21,920 --> 00:16:24,559 I must go to Netherfield at once.

     2

    00:16:37,120 --> 00:16:41,955 Lady Bathurst is redecorating her ballroom in the French style. 00:16:42,160 --> 00:16:45,197 A little unpatriotic, don't you think?

    00:16:47,560 --> 00:16:50,438 Miss Elizabeth Bennet.

    00:17:03,600 --> 00:17:05,716 Good Lord, did you walk here?

    00:17:06,440 --> 00:17:07,839 I did.

    00:17:14,680 --> 00:17:18,753 -I'm so sorry. How is my sister?- She's upstairs. 00:17:20,880 --> 00:17:22,757 Thank you.

    00:17:31,880 --> 00:17:36,556 My goodness, did yousee her hem ? Six inches deep in mud. 00:17:36,760 --> 00:17:38,796 She looked positively mediaeval.

    00:17:38,960 --> 00:17:43,317 I feel such a terrible imposition. They're being so kind to me. 00:17:43,480 --> 00:17:48,838 I don't know who is more pleased at your being here, Mama or Mr Bingley. 00:17:53,720 --> 00:17:56,154 Thank you for tending to my sister so diligently. 00:17:56,360 --> 00:17:58,555 She's in far better comfort than at home.

    00:17:58,720 --> 00:18:00,358 It's a pleasure.

    00:18:00,560 --> 00:18:04,235 I mean, it's not a pleasure that she's ill. Of course not. 00:18:04,440 --> 00:18:08,115 It's a pleasure that she's here, being ill. 00:18:11,160 --> 00:18:13,355 Not going to be famous, our pig.

    00:18:13,520 --> 00:18:16,717 Black on the back, but not related to the learned pig of Norwich. 00:18:16,920 --> 00:18:19,878 -Now that pig is...- Mr Bennet.

    00:18:20,040 --> 00:18:23,237 It's all going to plan. He's half in love with her already. 00:18:23,440 --> 00:18:25,556 -Who is, blossom?- Mr Bingley.

    00:18:25,760 --> 00:18:27,955 He doesn't mind that she hasn't a penny.

    00:18:28,160 --> 00:18:30,276 He has more than enough for the two of them. 00:18:30,480 --> 00:18:32,357 -How will we meet them?- Easy!

    00:18:32,520 --> 00:18:33,555 Wait for me!

    00:18:33,720 --> 00:18:38,919 You drop something. They pick it up. And then you're introduced. 00:18:46,240 --> 00:18:47,275 Officers!

    00:19:18,240 --> 00:19:21,437 You write uncommonly fast, Mr Darcy.

    00:19:21,640 --> 00:19:23,596 You're mistaken. I write slowly.

    00:19:23,800 --> 00:19:27,236 How many letters you must have occasion to write, Mr Darcy. 00:19:27,400 --> 00:19:30,153 Letters of business. How odious I should think them. 00:19:30,320 --> 00:19:33,073 It is fortunate, then, they fall to me and not you. 00:19:33,240 --> 00:19:35,674 Tell your sister I long to see her.

    00:19:35,880 --> 00:19:39,077 -I've already told her once.- I do dote on her. 00:19:39,240 --> 00:19:42,357 I was quite in raptures at her beautiful design for a table. 00:19:42,520 --> 00:19:45,637 Perhaps you will give me leave to defer your raptures. 00:19:45,800 --> 00:19:47,836 I have not room enough to do them justice.

    00:19:48,040 --> 00:19:50,759 You young ladies are so accomplished.

    00:19:50,920 --> 00:19:54,276 -What do you mean?- You paint tables, play the piano 00:19:54,440 --> 00:19:55,793 and embroider cushions.

    00:19:55,960 --> 00:19:58,997 I never heard of a lady, but people say she's accomplished. 00:19:59,200 --> 00:20:01,316 The word is applied too liberally.

    00:20:01,520 --> 00:20:03,556 I do not know more than half a dozen women

    00:20:03,720 --> 00:20:06,393 -that are truly accomplished.- Nor I.

    00:20:06,560 --> 00:20:09,597 Goodness, you must comprehend a great deal in the idea. 00:20:09,760 --> 00:20:11,318 I do.- Absolutely.

    00:20:11,520 --> 00:20:15,035 She must have a knowledge of music, singing, drawing, dancing 00:20:15,200 --> 00:20:18,397 and the modern languages to deserve the word. 00:20:18,600 --> 00:20:22,275 And something in her air and manner of walking. 00:20:22,480 --> 00:20:25,233 And she must improve her mind by extensive reading. 00:20:25,400 --> 00:20:28,995 I'm no longer surprised at your knowing only six accomplished women. 00:20:29,160 --> 00:20:32,357 -I wonder at you knowing any.- Are you so severe on your own sex? 00:20:32,560 --> 00:20:36,838 I never saw such a woman. She would certainly be a fearsome thing to behold. 00:20:39,160 --> 00:20:42,516 Miss Elizabeth, let us take a turn about the room. 00:20:59,040 --> 00:21:03,556 It's refreshing, is it not, after sitting so long in one attitude? 00:21:03,760 --> 00:21:06,877 It is a small kind of accomplishment, I suppose. 00:21:07,040 --> 00:21:09,156 Will you not join us, Mr Darcy?

    00:21:09,360 --> 00:21:12,716 You can only have two motives, and I would interfere with either. 00:21:12,920 --> 00:21:14,876 What can he mean?

    00:21:15,040 --> 00:21:18,157 The surest way to disappoint him would be to ask him nothing. 00:21:18,360 --> 00:21:20,999 Do tell us, Mr Darcy.

    00:21:23,000 --> 00:21:25,195 Either you are in each other's confidence

    00:21:25,360 --> 00:21:27,396 and you have secret affairs to discuss,

    00:21:27,600 --> 00:21:29,716 or you are conscious that your figures

    00:21:29,920 --> 00:21:32,957 appear to the greatest advantage by walking. 00:21:34,360 --> 00:21:37,033 If the first, I should get in your way.

    00:21:37,200 --> 00:21:39,998 If the second, I can admire you much better from here. 00:21:40,160 --> 00:21:42,435 How shall we punish him for such a speech?

    00:21:42,600 --> 00:21:46,479 -We could laugh at him.- No. Mr Darcy is not to be teased. 00:21:46,640 --> 00:21:51,156 Are you too proud, Mr Darcy? And would you consider pride a fault or a virtue? 00:21:51,320 --> 00:21:54,198 -I couldn't say.- We're trying to find a fault in you. 00:21:54,400 --> 00:21:57,358 I find it hard to forgive the follies and vices of others, 00:21:57,520 --> 00:21:59,238 or their offences against me.

    00:21:59,440 --> 00:22:02,796 My good opinion, once lost, is lost forever. 00:22:04,680 --> 00:22:07,717 Oh, dear. I cannot tease you about that.

    00:22:07,880 --> 00:22:09,916 What a shame, for I dearly love to laugh.

    00:22:10,120 --> 00:22:12,236 A family trait, I think.

    00:22:39,640 --> 00:22:44,839 A Mrs Bennet, a Miss Bennet, a Miss Bennet and a Miss Bennet, sir.

     3

    00:22:45,000 --> 00:22:47,878 Are we to receive every Bennet in the country? 00:22:50,480 --> 00:22:53,677 What an excellent room you have, sir.

    00:22:53,840 --> 00:22:57,355 Such expensive furnishings.

    00:22:57,520 --> 00:23:00,398 I do hope you intend to stay here, Mr Bingley. 00:23:00,600--> 00:23:05,196 Absolutely, I find the country very diverting. Don't you agree, Darcy? 00:23:05,360 --> 00:23:06,998 I find it perfectly adequate.

    00:23:07,200 --> 00:23:09,953 Even if society is a little less varied than in town. 00:23:10,120 --> 00:23:11,917 Less varied? Not at all.

    00:23:12,120 --> 00:23:15,999 We dine with four and 20 families of all shapes and sizes. 00:23:16,160 --> 00:23:20,438 Sir William Lucas, for instance, is a very agreeable man. 00:23:20,640 --> 00:23:24,235 And a good deal less self-important than some people half his rank. 00:23:24,440 --> 00:23:27,955 Mr Bingley, is it true you will hold a ball here? 00:23:28,120 --> 00:23:29,599 A ball?

    00:23:29,760 --> 00:23:34,276 It would be an excellent way to meet new friends. You could invite the militia. 00:23:34,480 --> 00:23:36,357 -Oh, do hold a ball!- Kitty!

    00:23:36,680 --> 00:23:39,274 When your sister recovers, you shall name the day. 00:23:39,440 --> 00:23:43,797 I think a ball is an irrational way to gain new acquaintance. 00:23:44,000 --> 00:23:47,959 It would be better if conversation, not dancing, were the order of the day. 00:23:48,120 --> 00:23:52,079 Indeed, much more rational, but rather less like a ball. 00:23:52,240 --> 00:23:53,798 Thank you, Mary.

    00:23:54,840 --> 00:23:58,958 What a fine imposing place to be sure, is it not, my dears? 00:23:59,120 --> 00:24:02,317 There's no house to equal it in the county.

    00:24:02,520 --> 00:24:04,158 -Mr Darcy.- Miss Bennet.

    00:24:04,320 --> 00:24:07,039 -There she is.- I don't know how to thank you. 00:24:07,200 --> 00:24:09,919 You're welcome any time you feel the least bit poorly. 00:24:10,080 --> 00:24:13,117 Thank you for your stimulating company. Most instructive. 00:24:13,280 --> 00:24:16,716 Not at all. The pleasure is all mine.

    00:24:19,280 --> 00:24:21,157 -Mr Darcy.- Miss Elizabeth.

    00:24:33,080 --> 00:24:37,835 And then there was one with great long lashes, like a cow. 00:24:38,000 --> 00:24:40,639 Ask Mrs Hill to order us a sirloin, Betsy.

    00:24:40,800 --> 00:24:44,076 Just the one, mind. We're not made of money. 00:24:46,440 --> 00:24:50,194 I hope, my dear, you've ordered a good dinner today. 00:24:50,400 --> 00:24:54,075 I've reason to expect an addition to our family party. 00:24:54,280 --> 00:24:56,919 His name's Mr Collins, the dreaded cousin.

    00:24:57,080 --> 00:24:59,435 -Who is to inherit?- Everything.

    00:24:59,640 --> 00:25:02,359 Even my piano stool belongs to Mr Collins.

    00:25:02,520 --> 00:25:03,475 When?

    00:25:03,680 --> 00:25:06,558 He may turn us out of the house as soon as he pleases. 00:25:06,760 --> 00:25:09,877 The estate passes directly to him and not to us poor females. 00:25:15,080 --> 00:25:17,196 Mr Collins, at your service.

    00:25:26,200 --> 00:25:29,954 What a superbly featured room and what excellent potatoes. 00:25:31,000 --> 00:25:34,913 It's many years since I've had such an exemplary vegetable. 00:25:35,080 --> 00:25:39,198 To which fair cousin should I compliment the excellence of the cooking? 00:25:39,400 --> 00:25:41,755 We are perfectly able to keep a cook.

    00:25:41,920 --> 00:25:43,797 Excellent.

    00:25:43,960 --> 00:25:47,236 I'm very pleased the estate can afford such a living. 00:25:50,640 --> 00:25:53,916 I'm honoured to have as my patroness Lady Catherine de Bourgh. 00:25:54,080 --> 00:25:56,594 You've heard of her, I presume?

    00:25:56,760 --> 00:26:00,594 My small rectory abuts her estate,

    00:26:00,760 --> 00:26:03,320 Rosings Park, and she often condescends

    00:26:03,480 --> 00:26:09,077 to drive by my humble dwelling in her little phaeton and ponies. 00:26:09,240 --> 00:26:10,798 Does she have any family?

    00:26:11,000 --> 00:26:15,278 One daughter, the heiress of Rosings and very extensive property. 00:26:15,480 --> 00:26:17,516 I've often observed to Lady Catherine

    00:26:17,680 --> 00:26:20,638 that her daughter seemed born to be a duchess, 00:26:20,840 --> 00:26:26,358 for she has all the superior graces of elevated rank. 00:26:26,560 --> 00:26:30,155 These kind of compliments are always acceptable to the ladies, 00:26:30,360 --> 00:26:34,478 and which I conceive myself particularly bound to pay. 00:26:34,640 --> 00:26:37,074 How happy for you, Mr Collins,

    00:26:37,240 --> 00:26:40,676 to possess the talent for flattering with such delicacy. 00:26:42,680 --> 00:26:46,036 Do these attentions proceed from the impulse of the moment 00:26:46,200 --> 00:26:48,555 or are they the result of previous study?

    00:26:48,760 --> 00:26:51,194 They arise from what is passing at the time. 00:26:51,400 --> 00:26:55,598 And though I do sometimes amuse myself with arranging such little compliments, 00:26:55,800 --> 00:26:59,236 I always wish to give them as unstudied an air as possible. 00:26:59,440 --> 00:27:03,353 Oh, believe me, no one would suspect your manners to be rehearsed. 00:27:09,800 --> 00:27:13,156 After dinner, I thought I might read to you for an hour or two. 00:27:13,320 --> 00:27:16,198 I have with me Fordyce's Sermons

    00:27:16,360 --> 00:27:20,638 which speak very eloquently on all matters moral. 00:27:20,840 --> 00:27:25,038 Are you familiar with Fordyce's Sermons, Miss Bennet? 00:27:29,800 --> 00:27:34,555 Mrs Bennet, I have been bestowed by the good grace of Lady Catherine de Bourgh 00:27:34,720 --> 00:27:37,075 a parsonage of no mean size.

    00:27:37,240 --> 00:27:39,276 I have become aware of the fact.

    00:27:39,480 --> 00:27:43,234 It is my avowed hope that soon I may find a mistress for it. 00:27:43,400 --> 00:27:46,676 And I have to inform you that the eldest Miss Bennet 00:27:46,840 --> 00:27:50,515 has captured my special attention.

    00:27:50,720 --> 00:27:53,314 Oh, Mr Collins.

    00:27:53,480 --> 00:27:57,439 Unfortunately, it is incumbent upon me

     4

    00:27:57,600 --> 00:28:03,596 to hint that the eldest Miss Bennet is very soon to be engaged. 00:28:03,760 --> 00:28:05,034 Engaged.

    00:28:05,200 --> 00:28:07,555 But Miss Lizzie, next to her in age and beauty, 00:28:07,760 --> 00:28:11,036 would make anyone an excellent partner.

    00:28:11,200 --> 00:28:15,079 Do not you agree? Mr Collins?

    00:28:15,240 --> 00:28:19,438 Indeed. Indeed.

    00:28:19,640 --> 00:28:21,995 A very agreeable alternative.

    00:28:43,120 --> 00:28:46,556 Mr Collins is a man who makes you despair at the entire sex. 00:28:46,720 --> 00:28:50,838 -Yours, I believe.- Oh, Mr Wickham, how perfect you are. 00:28:51,040 --> 00:28:54,077 He picked up my handkerchief. Did you drop yours on purpose? 00:28:54,240 --> 00:28:55,639 Mr Wickham is a lieutenant.

    00:28:55,800 --> 00:28:58,519 -An enchanted lieutenant.- What are you up to, Liddy? 00:28:58,680 --> 00:29:01,638 -We happened to be looking for ribbon.- White, for the ball. 00:29:01,840 --> 00:29:04,274 Shall we all look or some ribbon together? 00:29:07,280 --> 00:29:10,556 -Good afternoon, Mr James.- Miss Lydia, Miss Bennet. 00:29:10,760 --> 00:29:12,193 I shan't even browse.

    00:29:12,360 --> 00:29:14,999 I can't be trusted. I have poor taste in ribbons. 00:29:15,160 --> 00:29:17,594 Only a truly confident man would admit that. 00:29:17,760 --> 00:29:19,159 No, it's true.

    00:29:19,320 --> 00:29:22,357 And buckles. When it comes to buckles, I'm lost. 00:29:22,520 --> 00:29:25,796 -You must be the shame of the regiment.- The laughing stock. 00:29:26,000 --> 00:29:28,958 What do your superiors do with you?

    00:29:30,360 --> 00:29:34,399 Ignore me. I'm of next to no importance, so it's easily done. 00:29:35,520 --> 00:29:38,557 -Lizzie, lend me some money.- You already owe me a fortune. 00:29:39,400 --> 00:29:42,836 -Allow me to oblige.- No, Mr Wickham, please... 00:29:48,080 --> 00:29:50,275 I insist.

    00:29:53,320 --> 00:29:56,278 -I pity the French.- So do I.

    00:29:56,440 --> 00:29:59,000 -Look, Mr Bingley.- Mr Bingley!

    00:29:59,160 --> 00:30:01,276 I was just on my way to your house.

    00:30:01,480 --> 00:30:04,438 How do you like my ribbons for your ball?

    00:30:04,640 --> 00:30:07,916 -Very beautiful.- She is. Look, she's blooming. 00:30:08,080 --> 00:30:09,638 Oh, Lydia.

    00:30:09,840 --> 00:30:13,276 Be sure to invite Mr Wickham. He is a credit to his profession. 00:30:13,440 --> 00:30:16,637 You can't invite people to other people's balls. 00:30:17,200 --> 00:30:19,316 Of course, you must come, Mr Wickham.

    00:30:19,480 --> 00:30:23,758 If you'll excuse me, ladies, enjoy the day. 00:30:26,320 --> 00:30:29,437 Do you plan to go to the Netherfield ball, Mr Wickham? 00:30:29,600 --> 00:30:34,913 Perhaps. How long has Mr Darcy been a guest there? 00:30:35,080 --> 00:30:36,877 About a month.

    00:30:37,040 --> 00:30:42,353 Forgive me, but are you acquainted with him, with Mr Darcy? 00:30:42,520 --> 00:30:46,638 Indeed, I've been connected with his family since infancy. 00:30:46,840 --> 00:30:51,516 You may well be surprised, given our cold greeting this afternoon. 00:30:54,200 --> 00:30:57,556 I hope your plans in favor of Meryton will not be affected 00:30:57,720 --> 00:31:01,599 -by your relations with the gentleman.- It is not for me to be driven away. 00:31:01,760 --> 00:31:06,515 If he wishes to avoid seeing me, he must go, not I. 00:31:06,720 --> 00:31:11,157 I must ask, what is the manner of your disapproval of Mr Darcy? 00:31:14,240 --> 00:31:17,277 My father managed his estate.

    00:31:17,480 --> 00:31:20,517 We grew up together, Darcy and I.

    00:31:20,680 --> 00:31:26,437 His father treated me like a second son, loved me like a son. 00:31:26,640 --> 00:31:28,995 We were both with him the day he died.

    00:31:30,920 --> 00:31:32,717 With his last breath,

    00:31:32,880 --> 00:31:35,917 his father bequeathed me the rectory in his estate. 00:31:36,120 --> 00:31:39,556 He knew I had my heart set on joining the Church. 00:31:39,720 --> 00:31:42,917 But Darcy ignored his wishes and gave the living to another man. 00:31:43,120 --> 00:31:45,793 -But why? - Jealousy.

    00:31:47,720 --> 00:31:50,234 His father...

    00:31:50,400 --> 00:31:53,358 Well, he loved me better and Darcy couldn't stand it. 00:31:54,400 --> 00:31:56,960 -How cruel.- So now I'm a poor foot-soldier. 00:31:57,120 --> 00:32:00,715 Too lowly even to be noticed.

    00:32:11,880 --> 00:32:16,078 -Breathe in!- I can't anymore. You're hurting. 00:32:19,200 --> 00:32:20,315 Betsy.

    00:32:21,400 --> 00:32:22,958 Betsy!

    00:32:33,920 --> 00:32:37,993 -There must've been a misunderstanding.- Jane, you never think ill of anybody. 00:32:38,160 --> 00:32:41,596 How could Mr Darcy do such a thing?

    00:32:41,760 --> 00:32:44,957 I will discover the truth from Mr Bingley this evening. 00:32:45,160 --> 00:32:47,355 Let Mr Darcy contradict it himself.

    00:32:47,520 --> 00:32:49,715 Till he does, I hope never to encounter him. 00:32:49,880 --> 00:32:52,075 Poor, unfortunate, Mr Wickham.

    00:32:52,280 --> 00:32:54,316 Wickham is twice the man Darcy is.

    00:32:54,480 --> 00:32:58,075 And, let us hope, a rather more willing dancer. 00:33:03,120 --> 00:33:04,838 There they are, look.

    00:33:05,000 --> 00:33:08,037 -Oh, yes.- Billy.

    00:33:13,480 --> 00:33:15,436 Jane Martin is here.

    00:33:42,160 --> 00:33:45,596 May I say what an immense pleasure it is to see you again. 00:33:45,800 --> 00:33:47,756 -Mrs Bennet.- Miss Bingley.

    00:33:47,960 --> 00:33:48,915 Charming.

    00:33:51,600 --> 00:33:53,477 I'm so pleased you're here.

    00:33:53,640 --> 00:33:55,756 So am I.

     5

    00:33:55,960 --> 00:34:00,715 And how are you? Miss Elizabeth? Are you looking for someone? 00:34:00,920 --> 00:34:05,198 No, not at all, I was just admiring the general splendour. 00:34:05,360 --> 00:34:08,955 -It is breathtaking, Mr Bingley.- Good.

    00:34:16,560 --> 00:34:21,076 You might have passed a few pleasantries with Mr Bingley. 00:34:21,240 --> 00:34:24,835 I've never met a more pleasant gentleman in all my years. 00:34:25,040 --> 00:34:27,395 Did you see how he dotes on her?

    00:34:27,560 --> 00:34:32,076 Dear Jane, always doing what's best for her family. 00:34:48,880 --> 00:34:50,757 -Charlotte!- Lizzie!

    00:34:50,920 --> 00:34:55,516 -Have you seen Mr Wickham?- No. Perhaps he's through here. 00:35:07,280 --> 00:35:11,398 Lizzie, Mr Wickham is not here. Apparently, he's been detained. 00:35:11,600 --> 00:35:14,717 Detained where? He must be here.

    00:35:14,920 --> 00:35:18,959 -There you are.- Mr Collins.

    00:35:19,120 --> 00:35:22,476 Perhaps you will do me the honor, Miss Elizabeth. 00:35:22,680 --> 00:35:26,593 Oh, I did not think you danced, Mr Collins.

    00:35:26,760 --> 00:35:31,117 I do not think it incompatible with the office of a clergyman. 00:35:31,280 --> 00:35:34,556 Several people, her Ladyship included, have complimented me 00:35:34,720 --> 00:35:38,235 on my lightness of foot.

    00:36:01,880 --> 00:36:06,396 Apparently, your Mr Wickham has been called on some business to town. 00:36:09,600 --> 00:36:13,479 Dancing is of little consequence to me, but it does... 00:36:13,640 --> 00:36:17,076 ...but it does afford the opportunity to lavish... 00:36:20,880 --> 00:36:25,078 ...upon one's partner attentions...- My informer tells me... 00:36:25,280 --> 00:36:30,115 ...that he would be less incline to be engaged, were it not for... 00:36:30,320 --> 00:36:32,436 ...the presence of a certain gentleman.

    00:36:32,640 --> 00:36:34,596 Which is my primary object.

    00:36:34,800 --> 00:36:37,473 That gentleman barely warrants the name.

    00:36:37,640 --> 00:36:40,438 It is my intention, if I may be so bold,

    00:36:40,600 --> 00:36:43,034 to remain close to you throughout the evening. 00:36:56,920 --> 00:36:59,195 May I have the next dance, Miss Elizabeth?

    00:36:59,400 --> 00:37:01,197 You may.

    00:37:10,920 --> 00:37:14,879 -Did I agree to dance with Mr Darcy?- I dare say you will find him amiable. 00:37:15,040 --> 00:37:19,875 It would be most inconvenient since I've sworn to loathe him for all eternity. 00:37:34,240 --> 00:37:37,915 -I love this dance.- Indeed. Most invigorating. 00:37:41,880 --> 00:37:44,235 It is your turn to say something, Mr Darcy.

    00:37:45,680 --> 00:37:47,079 I talked about the dance.

    00:37:47,240 --> 00:37:51,916 Now you ought to remark on the size of the room or the number of couples. 00:37:52,080 --> 00:37:55,993 I'm perfectly happy to oblige. What would you like most to hear? 00:37:56,160 --> 00:37:58,355 That reply will do for present.

    00:38:01,480 --> 00:38:03,516 Perhaps by and by I may observe

    00:38:03,720 --> 00:38:06,757 that private balls are much pleasanter than public ones. 00:38:09,240 --> 00:38:12,277 For now, we may remain silent.

    00:38:19,680 --> 00:38:22,638 Do you talk as a rule while dancing?

    00:38:22,840 --> 00:38:26,515 No. No, I prefer to be unsociable and taciturn. 00:38:30,360 --> 00:38:33,636 Makes it all so much more enjoyable, don't you think? 00:38:35,920 --> 00:38:39,674 Tell me, do you and your sisters very often walk to Meryton? 00:38:42,280 --> 00:38:45,556 Yes, we often walk to Meryton.

    00:38:45,720 --> 00:38:48,553 It's a great opportunity to meet new people.

    00:38:50,360 --> 00:38:54,114 When you met us, we'd just had the pleasure of forming a new acquaintance. 00:38:55,920 --> 00:38:59,959 Mr Wickham's blessed with such happy manners, he's sure of making friends. 00:39:00,120 --> 00:39:02,759 Whether he's capable of retaining them is less so. 00:39:02,920 --> 00:39:08,438 He's been so unfortunate as to lose your friendship. That is irreversible? 00:39:08,640 --> 00:39:12,599 -It is. Why do you ask such a question?- To make out your character. 00:39:12,760 --> 00:39:15,115 -What have you discovered?- Very little.

    00:39:15,360 --> 00:39:18,716 I hear such different accounts of you as puzzle me exceedingly. 00:39:20,040 --> 00:39:22,474 I hope to afford you more clarity in the future. 00:40:07,240 --> 00:40:09,993 -Is that Mr Darcy of Pemberley?- I believe so. 00:40:10,160 --> 00:40:11,878 I must make myself known to him.

    00:40:12,040 --> 00:40:14,838 He's a nephew of my patroness, Lady Catherine. 00:40:15,000 --> 00:40:17,833 He will consider it an impertinence.

    00:40:18,000 --> 00:40:20,434 Mr Darcy.

    00:40:20,600 --> 00:40:22,636 Mr Darcy.

    00:40:23,680 --> 00:40:28,276 Mr Darcy. Good evening...

    00:40:28,480 --> 00:40:31,278 What interesting relatives you have.

    00:40:47,960 --> 00:40:51,635 Mary, dear, you've delighted us long enough.

    00:40:51,840 --> 00:40:55,037 Let the other young ladies have a turn.

    00:40:57,920 --> 00:41:00,514 ... since I was a child, and then she died.

    00:41:00,680 --> 00:41:02,318 I have a beautiful grey.

    00:41:02,520 --> 00:41:06,195 Of course, Caroline's a much better rider than I, of course. 00:41:10,000 --> 00:41:14,198 Oh, yes. We fully expect a most advantageous marriage. 00:41:15,320 --> 00:41:19,279 And my Jane, marrying so grand, must throw her sisters in the way. 00:41:40,520 --> 00:41:45,355 Clearly my family are seeing who can expose themselves to the most ridicule. 00:41:45,560 --> 00:41:49,314 -At least Bingley has not noticed.- No.

    00:41:49,480 --> 00:41:52,836 -I think he likes her very much.- But does she like him? 00:41:53,000 --> 00:41:56,959 Few of us are secure enough to be in love without proper encouragement. 00:41:57,120 --> 00:41:59,395 Bingley likes her enormously,

    00:41:59,600 --> 00:42:02,194 but might not do more if she does not help him on. 00:42:02,360 --> 00:42:05,955 She's just shy. If he cannot perceive her regard, he is a fool. 00:42:06,120 --> 00:42:08,475 We are all fools in love.

    00:42:08,640 --> 00:42:11,518 He does not know her character as we do.

     6

00:42:11,720 --> 00:42:13,995 She should move fast and snap him up.

    00:42:14,160 --> 00:42:17,436 There is plenty of time for us to get to know him afterwards. 00:42:18,680 --> 00:42:22,355 I can't help feeling that someone's going to produce a piglet 00:42:22,520 --> 00:42:24,397 and make us chase it.

    00:42:31,320 --> 00:42:34,437 -Oh, dear!- I do apologize, sir.

    00:42:34,640 --> 00:42:38,394 I'm awfully sorry. Do forgive me.

    00:42:57,160 --> 00:42:59,276 Emily, please!

    00:43:00,640 --> 00:43:04,918 Mary, my dear Mary. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. 00:43:05,080 --> 00:43:08,117 -I've been practicing all week.- I know, my dear. 00:43:08,320 --> 00:43:10,595 I hate balls.

    00:43:28,800 --> 00:43:30,995 Mr Bennet, wake up.

    00:43:31,160 --> 00:43:35,676 Oh, I've never had such a good time!

    00:43:37,960 --> 00:43:40,235 Charles, you cannot be serious.

    00:43:47,040 --> 00:43:52,319 We'll have a wedding here in less than three months if you ask me, Mr Bennet. 00:43:54,960 --> 00:43:56,473 Mr Bennet!

    00:44:01,960 --> 00:44:04,554 Mary, please.

    00:44:12,320 --> 00:44:14,515 Thank you, Mr Hill.

    00:44:31,480 --> 00:44:34,438 Mrs Bennet, I was hoping, if it would not trouble you, 00:44:34,640 --> 00:44:39,077 that I might solicit a private audience with Miss Elizabeth. 00:44:39,280 --> 00:44:44,718 Oh, certainly, Lizzie would be very happy indeed. 00:44:44,880 --> 00:44:49,078 Everyone, out. Mr Collins would like a private audience with your sister. 00:44:49,280 --> 00:44:53,478 Wait, Mr Collins can have nothing to say to me that anybody need not hear. 00:44:53,680 --> 00:44:57,434 I desire you will stay where you are. Everyone else to the drawing room. 00:44:57,600 --> 00:44:59,079 -Mr Bennet.- But...

    00:44:59,240 --> 00:45:01,515 Now.

    00:45:02,480 --> 00:45:07,076 -Jane. Jane, don't... Jane!- Jane.

    00:45:09,640 --> 00:45:12,598 Papa, stay.

    00:45:37,960 --> 00:45:39,598 Dear Miss Elizabeth,

    00:45:39,800 --> 00:45:43,236 My attentions have been too marked to be mistaken. 00:45:43,440 --> 00:45:45,715 Almost as soon as I entered the house,

    00:45:45,920 --> 00:45:50,835 I singled you out as the companion of my future life. 00:45:51,040 --> 00:45:53,600 But before I am run away with my feelings,

    00:45:53,760 --> 00:45:56,399 perhaps I may state my reasons for marrying.

    00:45:56,560 --> 00:45:58,915 Firstly, that it is the duty of a clergyman

    00:45:59,080 --> 00:46:01,640 to set the example of matrimony in his parish. 00:46:01,800 --> 00:46:05,634 Secondly, I am convinced it will add greatly to my happiness. 00:46:05,800 --> 00:46:08,598 And thirdly, that it is at the urging

    00:46:08,760 --> 00:46:12,196 of my esteemed patroness, Lady Catherine,

    00:46:12,360 --> 00:46:14,635 that I select a wife.

    00:46:14,840 --> 00:46:17,798 My object in coming to Longbourn was to choose such a one 00:46:17,960 --> 00:46:19,916 from among Mr Bennet's daughters,

    00:46:20,080 --> 00:46:22,878 for I am to inherit the estate

    00:46:23,040 --> 00:46:26,077 and such an alliance will surely...

    00:46:27,240 --> 00:46:29,037 ...suit everyone.

    00:46:31,120 --> 00:46:35,477 And now nothing remains but for me to assure you in the most animated language 00:46:35,640 --> 00:46:38,074 -of the violence of my affections.- Mr Collins! 00:46:38,280 --> 00:46:40,316 And no reproach on the subject of fortune

    00:46:40,520 --> 00:46:44,957 -will cross my lips once we're married.- You forget I have given no answer. 00:46:45,120 --> 00:46:48,556 Lady Catherine will thoroughly approve when I speak to her 00:46:48,720 --> 00:46:53,635 of your modesty, economy and other amiable qualities. 00:46:53,800 --> 00:46:58,316 Sir, I am honored by your proposal, but I regret that I must decline it. 00:46:59,440 --> 00:47:03,194 I know ladies don't seek to seem too eager... 00:47:03,400 --> 00:47:06,915 Mr Collins, I am perfectly serious. You could not make me happy. 00:47:07,080 --> 00:47:10,595 And I'm the last woman in the world who could make you happy. 00:47:10,800 --> 00:47:15,157 I flatter myself that your refusal is merely a natural delicacy. 00:47:15,320 --> 00:47:18,039 Besides, despite manifold attractions,

    00:47:18,200 --> 00:47:22,318 it is by no means certain another offer of marriage will ever be made to you. 00:47:22,520 --> 00:47:25,956 I must conclude that you simply seek to increase my love by suspense, 00:47:26,160 --> 00:47:30,358 according to the usual practice of elegant females. 00:47:30,520 --> 00:47:33,956 I am not the sort of female to torment a respectable man. 00:47:34,120 --> 00:47:36,554 Please understand me, I cannot accept you.

    00:47:43,520 --> 00:47:46,557 Headstrong, foolish child.

    00:47:54,200 --> 00:47:59,877 Don't worry, Mr Collins. We'll have this little hiccup dealt with immediately. 00:48:00,960 --> 00:48:04,316 Lizzie. Lizzie!

    00:48:08,280 --> 00:48:12,398 Mr Bennet, we're all in an uproar!

    00:48:12,600 --> 00:48:16,115 You must come and make Lizzie marry Mr Collins. 00:48:16,280 --> 00:48:18,635 Mr Collins has proposed to Lizzie,

    00:48:18,840 --> 00:48:22,276 but she vowed she will not have him, and now the danger is 00:48:22,440 --> 00:48:25,159 Mr Collins may not have Lizzie.

    00:48:25,320 --> 00:48:29,757 -What am I to do?- Well, come and talk to her. 00:48:29,920 --> 00:48:31,035 Now!

    00:48:43,200 --> 00:48:46,158 -Tell her you insist they marry.- Papa, please. 00:48:46,320 --> 00:48:50,233 You will have this house and save your sisters from destitution. 00:48:50,400 --> 00:48:53,233 -I can't marry him.- Go and say you've changed your mind. 00:48:53,400 --> 00:48:55,834 -Think of your family.- You cannot make me.

    00:48:56,000 --> 00:48:58,434 Mr Bennet, say something.

    00:49:02,200 --> 00:49:05,397 Your mother insists upon you marrying Mr Collins. 00:49:05,600 --> 00:49:08,194 Yes, or I shall never see her again.

     7

    00:49:08,360 --> 00:49:12,194 From this day onward, you must be a stranger to one of your parents. 00:49:12,360 --> 00:49:14,715 Who will maintain you when your father is dead? 00:49:14,920 --> 00:49:18,595 Your mother will never see you again if you do not marry Mr Collins, 00:49:18,760 --> 00:49:21,797 and I will never see you again if you do.

    00:49:21,960 --> 00:49:23,518 Thank you, Papa.

    00:49:27,120 --> 00:49:31,557 Ungrateful child! I shall never speak to you again. 00:49:31,760 --> 00:49:34,320 Not that I take much pleasure in talking.

    00:49:35,280 --> 00:49:37,919 People who suffer as I do from nervous complaints 00:49:38,080 --> 00:49:40,958 can have no pleasure in talking to anybody.

    00:49:41,160 --> 00:49:42,798 Jane!

    00:49:45,960 --> 00:49:49,919 What's the matter? Jane?

    00:50:42,200 --> 00:50:45,476 I don't understand what would take him from Netherfield. 00:50:45,640 --> 00:50:47,835 Why does he not know when he'll return?

    00:50:48,000 --> 00:50:49,115 Read it.

    00:50:58,000 --> 00:51:02,437 "Mr Darcy is impatient to see his sister and we are scarcely less eager. 00:51:02,640 --> 00:51:05,438 I do not think Georgiana Darcy has her equal for beauty, 00:51:05,600 --> 00:51:09,354 elegance and accomplishment. I hope to call her hereafter my sister." 00:51:09,520 --> 00:51:12,114 Is that not clear enough?

    00:51:12,280 --> 00:51:14,874 Caroline sees her brother in love with you

    00:51:15,040 --> 00:51:17,600 and has taken him off to persuade him otherwise. 00:51:17,760 --> 00:51:22,515 But I know her to be incapable of wilfully deceiving anyone. 00:51:22,720 --> 00:51:27,157 -It's more likely he does not love me.- He loves you. Do not give up. 00:51:29,280 --> 00:51:31,236 Go to our aunt and uncle's in London,

    00:51:31,440 --> 00:51:34,876 let it be known you are there and I am sure he will come to you. 00:51:44,080 --> 00:51:48,517 Give my love to my sister and try not to be a burden, dear. 00:51:48,680 --> 00:51:51,035 Poor Jane.

    00:51:51,240 --> 00:51:55,438 Still, a girl likes to be crossed in love now and then. 00:51:55,600 --> 00:51:57,556 It gives her something to think of

    00:51:57,720 --> 00:52:00,757 and a sort of distinction amongst her companions. 00:52:00,960 --> 00:52:04,635 -I'm sure that will cheer her up, Papa.- It's your turn now, Lizzie. 00:52:04,840 --> 00:52:06,637 You've turned down Collins.

    00:52:06,800 --> 00:52:10,918 You're free to go off and be jilted yourself.

    00:52:11,080 --> 00:52:12,877 What about Mr Wickham?

    00:52:13,040 --> 00:52:15,713 He's a pleasant fellow and he'd do the job credibly. 00:52:15,880 --> 00:52:19,395 -Father...- And you have an affectionate mother 00:52:19,600 --> 00:52:23,036 who would make the most of it.

    00:52:41,680 --> 00:52:43,716 -Charlotte!- My dear Lizzie.

    00:52:43,920 --> 00:52:49,199 I've come her to tell you the news. Mr Collins and I are... engaged. 00:52:49,360 --> 00:52:51,555 -Engaged?- Yes.

    00:52:56,000 --> 00:53:00,676 -To be married?- What other kind of engaged is there? 00:53:02,000 --> 00:53:05,276 For heaven's sake, Lizzie, don't look at me like that. 00:53:05,440 --> 00:53:08,318 I should be as happy with him as any other.

    00:53:08,520 --> 00:53:11,193 -But he's ridiculous.- Oh, hush.

    00:53:11,360 --> 00:53:14,955 Not all of us can afford to be romantic.

    00:53:15,120 --> 00:53:18,795 I've been offered a comfortable home and protection. 00:53:18,960 --> 00:53:20,598 There's a lot to be thankful for.

    00:53:20,800 --> 00:53:25,999 I'm 27 years old. I've no money and no prospects. 00:53:26,160 --> 00:53:29,596 I'm already a burden to my parents.

    00:53:29,760 --> 00:53:32,115 And I'm frightened.

    00:53:32,280 --> 00:53:36,637 So don judge me, Lizzie.Don't you dare judge me.

    00:54:27,000 --> 00:54:29,719 Dear Charlotte, thank you for your letter. 00:54:31,000 --> 00:54:34,037 I'm glad the house, furniture and roads are to your taste, 00:54:34,200 -->00:54:37,476 and that Lady Catherine's behavior is friendly and obliging. 00:54:37,640 --> 00:54:40,200 What with your departure, Jane's to London 00:54:40,360 --> 00:54:43,716 and the militia to the North with the colorful Mr Wickham, 00:54:43,880 -->00:54:47,634 I must confess, the view from where I sit has been rather grey. 00:54:47,840 --> 00:54:50,673 As for the favor you ask, it is no favor at all. 00:54:50,840 --> 00:54:54,799 I would be happy to visit you at your earliest convenience. 00:55:01,240 --> 00:55:03,196 Welcome to our humble abode.

    00:55:08,320 --> 00:55:11,915 My wife encourages me to spend time in the garden for my health. 00:55:12,080 --> 00:55:14,355 I think our guest is tired after her journey.

    00:55:14,560 --> 00:55:18,997 I plan many improvements. I intend to throw out a bough and plant a lime walk. 00:55:19,160 --> 00:55:21,993 I flatter myself that any young lady would be happy 00:55:22,160 --> 00:55:25,038 to be the mistress of such a house.

    00:55:26,160 --> 00:55:27,957 We shan't be disturbed here.

    00:55:28,160 --> 00:55:31,835 This parlour is for my own particular use.

    00:55:34,480 --> 00:55:38,393 Oh, Lizzie, it's such a pleasure to run my own home. 00:55:38,560 --> 00:55:41,438 -Charlotte, come here!- What's happened?

    00:55:41,600 --> 00:55:45,434 Has the pig escaped again? Oh, it's Lady Catherine. 00:55:45,600 --> 00:55:48,034 Come and see, Lizzie.

    00:55:48,200 --> 00:55:50,714 Great news.

    00:55:50,880 --> 00:55:53,997 We received an invitation to Rosings from Lady Catherine. 00:55:54,160 --> 00:55:55,639 How wonderful!

    00:55:55,800 --> 00:55:58,678 Do not make yourself uneasy about your apparel. 00:55:58,880 --> 00:56:01,075 Just put on the best you've brought.

    00:56:01,240 --> 00:56:05,597 Lady Catherine's never been averse to the truly humble. 00:56:06,360 --> 00:56:09,716 One of the most extraordinary sights in all of Europe. 00:56:09,920 --> 00:56:13,276 The glazing alone costs upwards of ?0,000.

     8

00:56:13,480 --> 00:56:15,914 Come along. Come along.

    00:56:24,360 --> 00:56:27,158 A little later we'll play cards.

    00:56:28,160 --> 00:56:30,833 Your Ladyship.

    00:56:31,000 --> 00:56:33,878 Miss de Bourgh.

    00:56:51,520 --> 00:56:54,876 -So, you are Elizabeth Bennet?- I am, your Ladyship. 00:56:58,400 --> 00:57:00,755 This is my daughter.

    00:57:02,800 --> 00:57:07,157 -It's kind of you to ask us to dine.- The rug alone cost upwards of ?00. 00:57:08,880 --> 00:57:10,916 Mr Darcy.

    00:57:12,280 --> 00:57:14,236 What are you doing here?

    00:57:16,280 --> 00:57:19,636 Mr Darcy, I had no idea we had the honor.

    00:57:21,320 --> 00:57:26,235 -Miss Elizabeth, I'm a guest here.- You know my nephew? 00:57:27,840 --> 00:57:31,116 I had the pleasure of meeting your nephew in Hertfordshire. 00:57:31,320 --> 00:57:33,914 Colonel Fitzwilliam. How do you do?

    00:57:39,240 --> 00:57:44,997 Mr Collins, you can't sit next to your wife. Move. Over there. 00:58:00,720 --> 00:58:04,235 Harvey, I wonder, could you get me the fish course... 00:58:04,400 --> 00:58:08,313 I trust your family is in good health, Miss Elizabeth? 00:58:08,480 --> 00:58:10,357 They are, thank you.

    00:58:13,840 --> 00:58:16,798 My eldest sister is in London. Perhaps you saw her there. 00:58:17,000 --> 00:58:18,877 I haven't been fortunate enough...

    00:58:19,080 --> 00:58:23,278 Do you play the pianoforte, Miss Bennet?

    00:58:23,440 --> 00:58:27,718 -A little, ma'am, and very poorly.- Do you draw? 00:58:28,960 --> 00:58:30,996 No, not at all.

    00:58:31,200 --> 00:58:33,316 Your sisters, do they draw?

    00:58:33,480 --> 00:58:34,754 Not one.

    00:58:34,920 --> 00:58:36,353 That's very strange.

    00:58:36,520 --> 00:58:39,034 I suppose you had no opportunity.

    00:58:39,200 --> 00:58:42,954 Your mother should've taken you to town for the benefit of the masters. 00:58:43,120 --> 00:58:47,079 My mother wouldn't have minded, but my father hates town. 00:58:47,240 --> 00:58:50,516 -Has your governess left you?- We never had a governess. 00:58:51,960 --> 00:58:55,953 No governess? Five daughters brought up at home without a governess? 00:58:56,120 --> 00:59:00,079 I never heard such a thing. Your mother must've been a slave to your education. 00:59:00,240 --> 00:59:02,196 Not at all, Lady Catherine.

    00:59:06,840 --> 00:59:09,195 Your younger sisters, are they out in society? 00:59:09,400 --> 00:59:11,436 -Yes, ma'am, all.- All?

    00:59:11,600 --> 00:59:14,478 What, all five out at once? That's very odd. 00:59:14,640 -->00:59:18,235 And you second. The younger ones out before the elders are married? 00:59:18,960 --> 00:59:21,758 Your youngest sisters must be very young.

    00:59:21,920 --> 00:59:23,558 Yes, my youngest is not 16.

    00:59:24,400 --> 00:59:26,516 But it would be hard on younger sisters

    00:59:26,680 --> 00:59:30,195 not to have their amusement because the elder is still unmarried. 00:59:30,360 --> 00:59:33,238 It would hardly encourage sisterly affection. 00:59:33,400 --> 00:59:38,155 Upon my word, you give your opinion very decidedly for so young a person. 00:59:38,360 --> 00:59:40,920 Pray, what is your age?

    00:59:41,080 --> 00:59:44,834 With three younger sisters grown up, you can hardly expect me to own to it. 00:59:54,640 --> 00:59:56,596 Come, Miss Bennet, and play for us.

    00:59:57,560 --> 01:00:00,916 -No, I beg you.- For music is my delight.

    01:00:01,080 --> 01:00:03,275 In fact, there are few people in England

    01:00:03,440 --> 01:00:07,194 who have more true enjoyment of music.

    01:00:07,360 --> 01:00:08,873 Or better natural taste.

    01:00:09,800 --> 01:00:15,158 If I had ever learnt, I should've been a great proficient. 01:00:15,320 --> 01:00:19,313 So would Anne, if her health would've allowed her. 01:00:19,480 --> 01:00:23,519 I'm not afflicted with false modesty, when I say I play poorly... 01:00:23,680 --> 01:00:27,275 Come, Lizzie, her Ladyship demands it.

    01:00:48,320 --> 01:00:51,357 How does Georgiana get along, Darcy?

    01:00:51,560 --> 01:00:54,836 -She plays very well.- I hope she practices. 01:00:55,000 --> 01:00:58,117 No excellence can be acquired without constant practice. 01:00:58,280 --> 01:01:00,635 I've told Mrs Collins this.

    01:01:00,840 --> 01:01:04,116 Though you have no instrument, you're welcome to come to Rosings 01:01:04,280 --> 01:01:07,158 and play on the pianoforte in the housekeeper's room. 01:01:07,360 --> 01:01:11,035 You'll be in nobody's way in that part of the house. 01:01:17,960 --> 01:01:22,875 You mean to frighten me by coming in all your state to hear me. 01:01:23,040 --> 01:01:26,794 But I won't be alarmed, even if your sister does play so well. 01:01:26,960 --> 01:01:30,714 I know that I cannot alarm you even should I wish it. 01:01:30,920 --> 01:01:34,674 What was my friend like in Hertfordshire?

    01:01:34,880 --> 01:01:37,758 You really care to know?

    01:01:37,960 --> 01:01:40,997 Prepare yourself for something very dreadful. 01:01:41,200 --> 01:01:44,078 The first time I saw him, he danced with nobody, 01:01:44,240 --> 01:01:45,798 though gentlemen were scarce

    01:01:46,000 --> 01:01:48,639 and there was more than one lady without a partner. 01:01:48,800 --> 01:01:52,395 -I knew nobody beyond my own party.- Nobody can be introduced at a ball. 01:01:52,600 --> 01:01:55,194 Fitzwilliam, I need you.

    01:02:05,640 --> 01:02:07,995 I do not have the talent

    01:02:08,200 --> 01:02:11,397 of conversing easily with people I have never met before. 01:02:11,800 --> 01:02:15,315 Perhaps you should take your aunt's advice and practice. 01:02:35,440 --> 01:02:38,193 Dear Jane...

    01:02:49,720 --> 01:02:50,994 Mr Darcy.

    01:02:58,560 --> 01:02:59,993 Please, do be seated.

    01:03:05,720 --> 01:03:08,075 Mr and Mrs Collins have gone to the village.

     9

01:03:15,640 --> 01:03:17,517 This is a charming house.

    01:03:17,680 --> 01:03:21,878 I believe my aunt did a great deal to it when Mr Collins first arrived. 01:03:22,040 --> 01:03:24,315 I believe so.

    01:03:25,560 --> 01:03:30,475 She could not have bestowed her kindness on a more grateful subject. 01:03:38,560 --> 01:03:41,757 -Shall I call for some tea?- No, thank you.

    01:03:45,640 --> 01:03:48,313 Good day, Miss Elizabeth, it's been a pleasure. 01:03:54,560 --> 01:03:57,916 What on earth have you done to poor Mr Darcy? 01:03:58,080 --> 01:04:00,355 I have no idea.

    01:04:01,520 --> 01:04:04,114 Every mind must have some counsellor

    01:04:04,280 --> 01:04:07,795 to whom it may apply for consolation in distress. 01:04:07,960 --> 01:04:12,556 There are many conveniences which others can supply and we cannot procure. 01:04:12,720 --> 01:04:14,517I have in view those objects

    01:04:14,720 --> 01:04:17,678 which are only to be obtained through intercourse... 01:04:19,960 --> 01:04:24,954 Forgive me, through the intercourse of friendship or civility. 01:04:25,160 --> 01:04:30,678 On such occasions, the proud man steps forth to meet you not with cordiality, 01:04:30,880 --> 01:04:35,476 but with the suspicion of one who reconnoitres an enemy... 01:04:35,680 --> 01:04:39,116 -How long do you plan to stay?- As long as Darcy chooses. 01:04:39,280 --> 01:04:42,397 -I am at his disposal.- Everyone appears to be. 01:04:42,560 --> 01:04:46,155 I wonder he does not marry and secure a lasting convenience of that kind. 01:04:46,360 --> 01:04:49,955 -She would be a lucky woman.- Really?

    01:04:50,160 --> 01:04:53,118 Darcy is a most loyal companion.

    01:04:53,320 --> 01:04:56,596 He recently came to the rescue of one of his friends. 01:04:56,760 --> 01:04:58,113 What happened?

    01:04:58,280 --> 01:05:00,316 He saved him from an imprudent marriage.

    01:05:00,520 --> 01:05:01,635 Who's the man?

    01:05:07,080 --> 01:05:10,595 His closest friend, Charles Bingley.

    01:05:12,880 --> 01:05:15,713 Did Mr Darcy give a reason for this interference? 01:05:15,880 --> 01:05:18,917 There were apparently strong objections to the lady. 01:05:19,120 --> 01:05:22,237 What kind of objections? Her lack of fortune? 01:05:22,440 --> 01:05:26,479 I think it was her family that was considered unsuitable. 01:05:27,960 --> 01:05:32,476 -So he separated them?- I believe so. I know nothing else. 01:06:01,520 --> 01:06:03,078 Miss Elizabeth.

    01:06:03,240 --> 01:06:05,754 I have struggled in vain and can bear it no longer. 01:06:05,920 --> 01:06:09,913 These past months have been a torment. I came to Rosings only to see you. 01:06:10,080 --> 01:06:13,117 I have fought against judgement, my family's expectation, 01:06:13,320 --> 01:06:16,039 the inferiority of your birth, my rank.

    01:06:16,200 --> 01:06:18,714 I will put them aside and ask you to end my agony. 01:06:18,880 --> 01:06:21,917 -I don't understand.- I love you.

    01:06:23,960 --> 01:06:26,235 Most ardently.

    01:06:29,120 --> 01:06:33,113 Please do me the honor of accepting my hand. 01:06:34,480 --> 01:06:38,234 Sir, I appreciate the struggle you have been through, 01:06:38,440 --> 01:06:40,874 and I am very sorry to have caused you pain. 01:06:41,080 --> 01:06:43,036 It was unconsciously done.

    01:06:44,400 --> 01:06:46,118 -Is this your reply? - Yes, sir.

    01:06:46,280 --> 01:06:48,874 -Are you laughing at me? - No.

    01:06:49,040 --> 01:06:50,155 Are you rejecting me?

    01:06:50,360 --> 01:06:55,673 I'm sure the feelings which hindered your regard will help you overcome it. 01:06:55,840 --> 01:06:58,877 Might I ask why with so little civility I am thus repulsed? 01:06:59,080 --> 01:07:04,074 I might enquire why you told me you liked me against your better judgement? 01:07:04,240 --> 01:07:06,435 If I was uncivil, then that is some excuse.

    01:07:06,600 --> 01:07:09,478 -But you know I have other reasons.- What reasons? 01:07:09,640 --> 01:07:13,076 Do you think anything might tempt me to accept the man who has ruined 01:07:13,240 --> 01:07:16,277 the happiness of a most beloved sister?

    01:07:16,440 --> 01:07:20,956 Do you deny that you separated a young couple who loved each other, 01:07:21,120 --> 01:07:23,395 exposing your friend to censure for caprice

    01:07:23,560 --> 01:07:26,279 and my sister to derision for disappointed hopes, 01:07:26,440 --> 01:07:28,396 involving them both in acute misery?

    01:07:28,600 --> 01:07:31,876 -I do not deny it.- How could you do it?

    01:07:32,040 --> 01:07:34,793 I believed your sister indifferent to him.

    01:07:34,960 --> 01:07:37,520 I realised his attachment was deeper than hers. 01:07:37,680 --> 01:07:38,635 She's shy!

    01:07:38,840 --> 01:07:41,354 Bingley was persuaded she didn't feel strongly. 01:07:41,520 --> 01:07:43,476 -You suggested it.- For his own good.

    01:07:43,640 --> 01:07:46,359 My sister hardly shows her true feelings to me. 01:07:50,400 --> 01:07:52,834 I suppose his fortune had some bearing?

    01:07:53,040 --> 01:07:55,474 I wouldn't do your sister the dishonor.

    01:07:55,640 --> 01:07:57,596 -It was suggested...- What was?

    01:07:57,760 --> 01:08:00,115 It was clear an advantageous marriage...

    01:08:00,280 --> 01:08:02,555 -Did my sister give that impression?- No!

    01:08:02,760 --> 01:08:06,673 -No. There was, however, your family...- Our want of connection? 01:08:06,840 --> 01:08:09,195 -No, it was more than that.- How, sir?

    01:08:09,400 --> 01:08:14,076 The lack of propriety shown by your mother, younger sisters and your father. 01:08:17,360 --> 01:08:22,115 Forgive me. You and your sister I must exclude from this. 01:08:26,440 --> 01:08:28,158 And what about Mr Wickham?

    01:08:30,320 --> 01:08:31,275 Mr Wickham?

    01:08:31,480 --> 01:08:34,119 What excuse can you give for your behavior?

    01:08:34,280 --> 01:08:37,397 -You take an eager interest.- He told me of his misfortunes. 01:08:37,560 --> 01:08:40,120 -Oh, they have been great.- You ruin his chances
