Mr. Darcy: [after he sees Elizabeth at Pemberly, and follows her outside] Miss Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Bennet: I thought you were in London.
Mr. Darcy: No. No, I'm not.
[Simultaneously:]
Elizabeth Bennet: We would not have come if we'd known you were here.
Mr. Darcy: I came back a day early.
[pause]
Elizabeth Bennet: I'm in Derbyshire with my aunt and uncle.
Mr. Darcy: And are you having a...pleasant trip?

[pause]

Mr. Darcy: Tomorrow?
[pause]
Mr. Darcy: Are you staying at Lambton?
Elizabeth Bennet: Yes, at the Rose and Crown.
Mr. Darcy: Yes.
[pause]
Elizabeth Bennet: I'm so sorry to intrude. They said that the house was open for visitors, I had no idea....
Mr. Darcy: May I see you back to the village?
Elizabeth Bennet: No!
[pause]
Elizabeth Bennet: I'm very fond of walking.
Mr. Darcy: Yes. Yes, I know.


Mr. Darcy: Miss Elizabeth. I have struggled in vain and I can bear it no longer. These past months have been a torment. I came to Rosings with the single object of seeing you... I had to see you. I have fought against my better judgment, my family's expectations, the inferiority of your birth, my rank and circumstance. All these things I am willing to put aside and ask you to end my agony.
Elizabeth Bennet: I don't understand.
Mr. Darcy: I love you. Most ardently. Please do me the honour of accepting my hand.
Elizabeth Bennet: Sir, I appreciate the struggle you have been through, and I am very sorry to have caused you pain. Believe me, it was unconsciously done.
Mr. Darcy: Is this your reply?
Elizabeth Bennet: Yes, sir.
Mr. Darcy: Are you... are you laughing at me?
Elizabeth Bennet: No.
Mr. Darcy: Are you *rejecting* me?
Elizabeth: I'm sure that the feelings which, as you've told me have hindered your regard, will help you in overcoming it.
Mr. Darcy: Might I ask why, with so little endeavour at civility, I am thus repulsed?
Elizabeth Bennet: And I might as well enquire why, with so evident a design of insulting me, you chose to tell me that you liked me against your better judgment.
Mr. Darcy: No, believe me, I didn't mean--
Elizabeth Bennet: If I was uncivil, then that is some excuse. But I have other reasons, you know I have.
Mr. Darcy: What reasons?
Elizabeth Bennet: Do you think anything might tempt me to accept the hand of the man who has ruined, perhaps for ever, the happiness of a most beloved sister? Do you deny that you separated a young couple who loved each other, exposing your friend to censure of the world for caprice and my sister to derision for disappointed hopes, involving them both in misery of the acutest kind?
Mr. Darcy: I do not deny it.
Elizabeth Bennet: How could you do it?
Mr. Darcy: Because I believed your sister to be indifferent to him.
Elizabeth Bennet: Indifferent?
Mr. Darcy: I watched them most carefully and realized his attachment was deeper than hers.
Elizabeth Bennet: That's because she's shy!
Mr. Darcy: Bingley, too, is modest and was persuaded she didn't feel strongly for him--
Elizabeth Bennet: Because you suggested it!
Mr. Darcy: I did it for his own good!
Elizabeth Bennet: My sister hardly shows her true feelings to me. [pauses] I suppose you suspect that his fortune had some bearing?
Mr. Darcy: No! I wouldn't do your sister the dishonor, though it was suggested...
Elizabeth Bennet: What was?
Mr. Darcy: It was made perfectly clear that an advantageous marriage...
Elizabeth Bennet: Did my sister give that impression?
Mr. Darcy: No! No. No, there was, however, I have to admit, the matter of your family...
Elizabeth Bennet: Our want of connection? Mr. Bingley didn't seem to vex himself about that--
Mr. Darcy: No, it was more than that.
Elizabeth Bennet: How, sir?
Mr. Darcy: It was the lack of propriety shown by your mother, your three younger sisters, even on occasion your father. [pauses] Forgive me. You and your sister I must exclude from this.
Elizabeth Bennet: And what about Mr. Wickham?
Mr. Darcy: Mr.. Wickham?
Elizabeth Bennet: What excuse can you give for your behavior towards him?
Mr. Darcy: You take an eager interest in that gentleman's concerns.
Elizabeth Bennet: He told me of his misfortunes.
Mr. Darcy: Oh, yes, his misfortunes have been very great indeed.
Elizabeth Bennet: You ruin his chances and yet you treat him with sarcasm.
Mr Darcy: So this is your opinion of me. Thank you for explaining so fully. Perhaps these offences might have been overlooked had not your pride been hurt by my honesty...
Elizabeth Bennet: My pride?
Mr. Darcy: ...in admitting scruples about our relationship. Could you expect me to rejoice in the inferiority of your circumstances?
Elizabeth Bennet: And those are the words of a gentleman. From the first moment I met you, your arrogance and conceit, your selfish disdain for the feelings of others made me realize that you were the last man in the world I could ever be prevailed upon to marry.
(Pause. He leans in towards her, as if they're about to kiss.)
Mr Darcy: Forgive me, madam, for taking up so much of your time.

Mr. Darcy: Then what do you suggest, to encourage affection?
Elizabeth Bennet: Dancing, even if one's partner is barely tolerable. [turns around and leaves]

Mr. Darcy: I, do not have the talent of conversing easily with people I have never met before.
Elizabeth Bennet: Perhaps you should take your aunt's advice and practice?

Mr. Darcy: May I have the next dance, Miss Elizabeth?
Elizabeth Bennet: You May.

[After Lizzy - to her own surprise - has agreed to dance with Mr. Darcy]
Charlotte Lucas: I daresay you will find him to be very amiable.
Elizabeth Bennet: That would be most inconvenient since I have sworn to loathe him for all eternity.

[sitting in front of the lake] (Alternate USA ending) Mr. Darcy: How are you this evening, my dear?
Elizabeth Bennet: Very well. Only I wish you would not call me "my dear".
Mr. Darcy: Why?
Elizabeth Bennet: Because it's what my father always calls my mother when he's cross about something.
Mr. Darcy: What endearments am I allowed?
Elizabeth Bennet: Well let me think..."Lizzie" for everyday, "My Pearl" for Sundays, and..."Goddess Divine", but only on very special occasions.
Mr. Darcy: [Chuckles] And...what should I call you when I am cross? "Mrs. Darcy"?
Elizabeth Bennet: [Smiling] No! No. You may only call me "Mrs. Darcy"... when you are completely, and perfectly, and incandescently happy.
Mr. Darcy: [Snickers] Then how are you this evening... Mrs. Darcy? [kisses her forehead]
Mr. Darcy: Mrs. Darcy [kisses her left cheek]
Mr. Darcy: Mrs. Darcy [kisses her nose]
Mr. Darcy: Mrs. Darcy [kisses her right cheek]
Mr. Darcy: Mrs. Darcy [they kissed]

Barely tolerable, I dare say, but not handsome enough to tempt me.

I have been so blind.

Only the deepest love will persuade me into matrimony which is why I shall end up an old maid.

You are too generous to trifle with me. I believe you spoke with my aunt last night, and it has taught me to hope as I'd scarcely allowed myself before. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes have not changed, but one word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love... I love... I love you. And I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.
