  • Yes?

  • Lady Catherine.

  • The rest of your offspring, l presume.

  • All but one, the youngest has been lately married, Your Ladyship.

  • And my eldest was proposed to, only this afternoon.

  • You have a very small garden, madam.

  • Could l offer you a cup of tea, perhaps, Your--

  • Absolutely not. l need to speak to Miss Elizabeth Bennet alone.

  • As a matter of urgency.

  • You can be of no loss, Miss Bennet, to understand why l am here.

  • lndeed you're mistaken. l cannot account for this honor at all.

  • Miss Bennet, l warn you, l am not to be trifled with.

  • A report of a most alarming nature has reached me...

  • that you intend to be united with my nephew, Mr. Darcy.

  • l know this to be a scandalous falsehood...

  • though not wishing to injure him by supposing it possible...

  • l instantly set off to make my sentiments known.

  • lf you believed it to be impossible...

  • l wonder you took the trouble of coming so far.

  • To hear it contradicted, Miss Bennet.

  • Your coming will be rather a confirmation, surely...

  • if indeed such a report exists. If?

  • Do you then pretend to be ignorant of it?

  • Has it not been industriously circulated by yourself?

  • l have never heard of it.

  • And can you declare there is no foundation for it?

  • l do not pretend to possess equal frankness with Your Ladyship.

  • You may ask a question which l may choose not to answer.

  • This is not to be borne.

  • Has my nephew made you an offer of marriage?

  • Your Ladyship has declared it to be impossible.

  • Let me be understood.

  • Mr. Darcy is engaged to my daughter.

  • Now, what have you to say? Only this. If that is the case...

  • you can have no reason to suppose he would make an offer to me.

  • You selfish girl!

  • This union has been planned since their infancy.

  • Do you think it can be prevented by a young woman of inferior birth...

  • whose own sister's elopement...

  • resulted in a scandalously patched-up marriage...

  • only achieved at the expense of your uncle?

  • Heaven and Earth, are the shades of Pemberley to be thus polluted?

  • J Now tell me once and for all are you engaged to him?

  • l am not.

  • And will you promise never to enter into such an engagement?

  • l will not, and l certainly never shall.

  • You have insulted me in every possible way...

  • and can now have nothing further to say.

  • l must ask you to leave immediately.

  • (Elizabeth) Good night.

  • [dog barking]

  • Lizzie, what on earth is going on?

  • lt's iust a small misunderstanding.

  • Lizzie.

  • Oh, for once in your life, Ieave me alone!

  • [hens clucking]
