Darcy: May I ask to what these questions tend?
Lizzie: Merely to the illustration of your character. I’m trying to make it out.
Darcy: What is your success?
Lizzie: I don’t get on at all. I hear such different accounts of you as to puzzle me exceedingly.
Darcy: I wish that you wouldn’t attempt to sketch my character at the present moment. The performance should reflect no credit on either of us.
Lizzie: If I don’t take your likeness now, I may never have another opportunity!
Darcy: I would by no means suspend any pleasure of yours.
Pride and Prejudice, ep 2.
My essential viewing tonight, 9pm, BBC2. They’ve recreated the Netherfield ball (can you recreate a fictional event?). I have literally sat around with friends and wished about going to that ball, why did I not get invited to this?!?!
