  • Are you laughing at me?

  • No. Are you rejecting me?

  • l'm sure that the feelings which, as you've told me...

  • have hindered your regard will help you in overcoming it.

  • Might l ask why...

  • with so little endeavor at civility, l am thus repulsed?

  • And l 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! No, believe me--

  • lf l was uncivil, then that is some excuse!

  • But l have other reasons. You know l have.

  • What reasons?

  • Do you think that anything might tempt me to accept the man...

  • who has ruined, perhaps forever...

  • the happiness of a most beloved sister?

  • Do you deny it, Mr. Darcy?

  • That you separated a young couple who loved each other...

  • exposing your friend to the center of the world for caprice...

  • and my sister to its derision for disappointed hopes.

  • And involving them both in misery of the acutest kind?

  • l do not deny it.

  • How could you do it?

  • Because l believed your sister indifferent to him.

  • lndifferent?

  • l watched them most carefully...

  • and realized his attachment was deeper than hers.

  • That's because she's shy.

  • Bingley, too, is modest...

  • and was persuaded she didn't feel strongly for him.

  • Because you suggested it. l did it for his own good.

  • My sister hardly shows her true feelings to me!

  • l suppose you suspect that his fortune had some bearing--

  • No! l wouldn't do your sister the dishonor!

  • Though it was suggested-- What was?

  • lt was made perfectly clear that an advantageous marriage--

  • Did my sister give that impression? No! No!

  • No. There was, however, l have to admit, the matter of your family.

  • Our want of connection?

  • Mr. Bingley didn't seem to vex himself about that.

  • No, it was more than that. How, sir?

  • lt was the lack of propriety...

  • shown by your mother, your three younger sisters...

  • even, on occasion, your father.

  • [thunder rumbling]

  • Forgive me.

  • You and your sister l must exclude from this.

  • And what about Mr. Wickham?

  • Mr. Wickham?

  • What excuse can you give for your behavior towards him?

  • You take an eager interest in that gentleman's concerns.

  • He told me of his misfortunes.

  • Oh, yes, his misfortunes have been very great indeed.

  • You ruin his chances, and yet you treat him with sarcasm?

  • So this is your opinion of me.

  • Thank you for explaining so fully.

  • Perhaps these offenses might have been overlooked had not your...

  • pride been hurt by my honesty... My pride?

  • ...in admitting scruples about our relationship.

  • Could you expect me to rejoice...

  • in the inferiority of your circumstances?

  • And those are the words of a gentleman.

  • From the first moment l 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...

  • l could ever be prevailed upon to marry.

  • Forgive me, madam, for taking up so much of your time.

  • [sighs]

Are you laughing at me?
