Pride & Prejudice (2005)
Donald Sutherland: Mr. Bennet
[ordered to order Lizzie to accept Mr. Collins's proposal]
Mr. Bennet : Your mother insists on you marrying Mr. Collins...
Mrs. Bennet : Yes! Or I'll never see her again!
Mr. Bennet : Well, Lizzy, from this day henceforth it seems you must be a stranger to one of your parents...
Mrs. Bennet : Who will maintain you when your father's gone?
Mr. Bennet : Your mother will never see you again if you do not marry Mr. Collins... and I will never see you again if you do.
Mrs. Bennet : Mr. Bennet!
Elizabeth Bennet : Thank you, Papa.
Mr. Bennet : Lizzy, are you out of your senses? I thought you hated the man.
Elizabeth Bennet : No, Papa.
Mr. Bennet : He's rich, to be sure, and you will have more fine carriages than Jane. But will that make you happy?
Elizabeth Bennet : Have you no objection other than your belief in my indifference?
Mr. Bennet : None at all. We all know him to be a proud, unpleasant sort of fellow... but that would be nothing if you really liked him.
Elizabeth Bennet : I do like him.
Mr. Bennet : Well...
Elizabeth Bennet : I love him.
[last lines, UK version]
Mr. Bennet : If any young men come for Mary or Kitty, for heaven's sake, send them in. I'm quite at my leisure.
Elizabeth Bennet : He's been a fool about so many things, about Jane, and others... but then, so have I. You see, he and I are so similar.
[starts laughing helplessly]
Elizabeth Bennet : We've been nonsensical! Papa, I...
Mr. Bennet : [also starts laughing, softly] You really do love him, don't you?
Elizabeth Bennet : Very much.
Mr. Bennet : [exits study, finds four of his daughters eavesdropping] Good heavens. People.
Mr. Bennet : How happy for you, Mr. Collins, to possess a talent for flattering with such... delicacy.
Elizabeth Bennet : Do these pleasing attentions proceed from the impulse of the moment, or are they the result of previous study?
Mr. Collins : They arise chiefly from what is passing of the time. And though I do sometimes amuse myself with arranging such little elegant compliments, I always wish to give them as unstudied an air as possible.
Elizabeth Bennet : Oh, believe me, no one would suspect your manners to be rehearsed.
Mr. Bennet : Your mother will never see you again if you do not marry Mr. Collins... And I will never see you again if you do.
Mr. Bennet : Poor Jane. Still, a girl likes to be crossed in love now and then. It gives her something to think of... and a sort of distinction amongst her companions.
Kitty Bennet : Papa!
Mrs. Bennet : Is he amiable?
Mary Bennet : Who?
Kitty Bennet : Is he handsome?
Mary Bennet : Who?
Lydia Bennet : He's sure to be handsome.
Elizabeth Bennet : For five thousand a year, it would not matter if he's got warts and a leer.
Mary Bennet : Who's got warts?
Mr. Bennet : I'll give my heartiest consent to his marrying whichever of the girls he chooses.
Lydia Bennet : So will he come to the ball tomorrow, Papa?
Mr. Bennet : I believe so.
Mrs. Bennet : ...and then he danced the third with Miss Lucas.
Mr. Bennet : We were all there, dear.
Mrs. Bennet : Oh, poor thing. It is a shame she's not more handsome. There's a spinster in the making and no mistake. The fourth with a Miss King, of little standing... and the fifth again with Jane.
Mr. Bennet : If he'd had any compassion for me, he would have sprained his ankle in the first set.
Mr. Collins : Mrs. Bennet I was hoping, if it would not trouble you, that I might solicit a private audience with Miss Elizabeth in the course of the morning.
Mrs. Bennet : Oh, yes. Certainly. Lizzy will be very happy indeed. Everyone, out. Mr. Collins would like a private audience with your sister.
Elizabeth Bennet : No, no, wait, please. I beg you. Mr. Collins can have nothing to say to me that anybody need not hear.
Mrs. Bennet : No nonsense, Lizzy. I desire you will stay where you are. Everyone else to the drawing room. Mr. Bennet?
Mr. Bennet : But...
Mrs. Bennet : Now.
Mr. Bennet : How can that possibly affect them?
Mrs. Bennet : Oh Mr. Bennet, how can you be so tiresome? You know he must marry one of them!
Mr. Bennet : Ah, so that is his desire in settling here.
Mrs. Bennet : You must go and visit him at once!
Mr. Bennet : Good heavens. People.
Mrs. Bennet : For we may not visit if you do not, as you well know, Mr. Bennet!
