"I’ve spent years trying to figure out why Mr Darcy’s fully clothed swim in his breeches and shirt caused such a sensation. My wife certainly wouldn’t go weak at the knees if I came home in a sodden shirt." - Colin Firth (x)


Cap’n Quote: Pride and Prejudice (2005)

Rosamund Pike, on the set of 'Pride & Prejudice' 2005

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

Mr. Darcy? I could more easily forgive his vanity had he not wounded mine. But no matter. I doubt we shall ever speak again.

Emma (2009 Mini-Series)


"The reason I was so terrified about taking her on was that when I first got the part I had women coming over to me saying ‘you’re not Elizabeth Bennet, I am.’ I think that’s why the character is so loved, because everybody who loves the book is Elizabeth Bennet. Or she’s what you aspire to be, she’s funny, she’s witty and intelligent. She’s a fully rounded and very much loved character. So it’s terrifying to actually take her on. But equally because I’d been obsessed I also believed that I was Elizabeth Bennet so I was the right person for it.” - Keira Knightley


"As Knightley studies a ceiling painted with cavorting nudes and admires the curves of some extremely buff statuary, the Darcy home is increasingly eroticized. Her expression is one of awe tinged with wistfulness and, increasingly, desire; by the time she recognizes a handsome bust of Mr. Darcy, it is clear her feelings toward the man have begun to soften. The moment that interests me, however, comes shortly before this, when Elizabeth has just entered the gallery.  For the figure that first seizes and holds her attention is not the lounging youth wearing only a helmet but a standing woman, fully clothed and, what is more, completely veiled. Her face is, indeed, quite closely and confiningly swathed—I am tempted to say, suffocatingly so."

- Susan Fraiman (The Liberation of Elizabeth Bennet in Joe Wright’s Pride & Prejudice)

Count your blessings, Lizzy. If he liked you, you’d have to talk to him.


Let me make things as clear as possible.. William Darcy, I don’t wanna be just friends.

"How can you, of all people, dispose of yourself without affection?" "How can I dispose of myself with it?" - Becoming Jane (2007)
