Pride & Prejudice (2005) Poster

Kelly Reilly: Caroline Bingley


  • Caroline Bingley : Miss Elizabeth, let us take a turn about the room.

    [Caroline takes Lizzy's arm in hers, and they walk gracefully in a circle around the room] 

    Caroline Bingley : It's refreshing, is it not after sitting so long in one attitude?

    Elizabeth Bennet : And it is a small kind of accomplishment, I suppose.

    Caroline Bingley : Will you not join us, Mr. Darcy?

    Mr. Darcy : You can only have two motives, Caroline and I would interfere with either.

    Caroline Bingley : What can he mean?

    Elizabeth Bennet : Our surest way of disappointing him will be to ask him nothing about it.

    Caroline Bingley : But Do tell us, Mr. Darcy.

    Mr. Darcy : Either you are in each other's confidence and have secret affairs to discuss, or you are conscious that your figures appear to the greatest advantage by walking. If the first, I should get in your way. If the second, I can admire you much better from here.

  • Elizabeth Bennet : Are you too proud Mr. Darcy? And would you consider pride a fault or a virtue?

    Mr. Darcy : That I couldn't say.

    Elizabeth Bennet : Because we're doing our best to find a fault in you.

    Mr. Darcy : Maybe it's that I find it hard to forgive the follies and vices of others, or their offenses against me. My good opinion, once lost, is lost forever.

    Elizabeth Bennet : Oh, dear, I cannot tease you about that. What a shame, for I dearly love to laugh.

    Caroline Bingley : A family trait, I think.

  • Caroline Bingley : [Elizabeth enters the room, Darcy stands. Caroline is appalled]  Good Lord, Miss Elizabeth. Did you walk here?

    Elizabeth Bennet : I did.

    [long pause] 

    Elizabeth Bennet : I'm so sorry. How is my sister?

    Mr. Darcy : She's upstairs.

    Elizabeth Bennet : [another pause; she smiles and curtseys]  Thank you.

    [she leaves the room] 

    Caroline Bingley : My goodness, did you see her hem? Six inches deep in mud. She looked positively mediaeval.

  • Netherfield Butler : A Mrs. Bennet, a Miss Bennet, a Miss Bennet and a Miss Bennet, sir.

    Caroline Bingley : Oh for heaven's sake, are we to receive every Bennet in the country?

  • Caroline Bingley : Charles. You cannot be serious.

  • Caroline Bingley : We are a long way from Grosvenor Square, are we not, Mr. Darcy?

  • Caroline Bingley : I can't help thinking that at some point someone is going to produce a piglet and we'll all have to chase it.
