Memorable Quotes of Mrs. Gardiner from Pride & Prejudice movie...

"Come to the Peak District with us, Lizzie, and get some fresh air." (Mrs. Gardiner)

"Take care, my love. That savors strongly of bitterness." (Mrs. Gardiner)


"By heavens, Lizzie, what a snob you are. Objections to poor Mr. Darcy because of his wealth. The poor man can't help it." (Mr. Gardiner)
"He won't be there anyway. Those great men are never at home." (Mrs. Gardiner)


"What are men compared to rocks or mountains?" (Mr. Gardiner)
"Or carriages that work." (Mrs. Gardiner)


"A handsome face. Lizzie, is it a true likeness?" (Mrs. Gardiner)


"Lizzie, we've just met Mr. Darcy. You didn't tell us that you've seen him. He asked us to dine with him tomorrow. He was very civil, was he not?  Not at all how you painted him." (Mrs. Gardiner)


"He particularly want you to meet his sister." (Mrs. Gardiner)


"There's something pleasant about his mouth when he speaks." (Mrs. Gardiner)


"Enter the Gardiners. Love the Gardiners. Their relationship is based on pies. In every scene, they're eating. And they have a very happy marriage in their shared admiration of the great English pie or cheese." (Joe Wright)
