Pride & Prejudice References in Pop Culture (Part 5)

It's been a while since I've posted here a P&P reference or P&P/Darcy/Elizabeth mentioned in P&P inspired books or other non-P&P books, in movies, TV showsmagazinesreviews, or celebrities mentioning Pride and Prejudice /Jane Austen.

I thought I'd update and post here a more recent P&P References, from the most popular Jane Austen novel, the
1995  mini-seriesP&P (2005) movie or any of the P&P characters (ie. Elizabeth & Darcy) that were referenced a lot in books, magazines, movies, TV shows, reviews, etc...

Here are a few newer ones of the many references I've compiled here to share with you all, which I've actually first posted here. If you have anything new to share that I haven't posted here. Feel free 
to comment and post here as well. I'd love to add them here or compile them in a new post. Thanks in advance.

Here are a few more in this part 5 of P&P novel, References in Pop Culture...

Gone Girl starring Rosamund Pike and Ben Affleck (Theater Release: October 3, 2014)


A Jane Austen/Pride & Prejudice reference...
Nick and Amy discussed briefly the Pride and Prejudice book in a library scene. Nick mentioned Elizabeth Bennet and said Jane Austen or Jane (a few times or so). 

 "You're an alienated teen and only ELIZABETH BENNET understood you." -Nick Dunne (to Rosamund Pike's Amy Elliot)

Also, Nick said the following quotes to Amy...
"Here, search JANE.....AUSTEN" (the "Jane" part could also be a reference to Jane Bennet, which Rosamund Pike played in P&P 2005 movie )
"God bless JANE AUSTEN."


Of course, Rosamund, who plays Amy, played Jane Bennet in the Pride & Prejudice (2005) film adaptation of the Austen's novel of the same title. If you're a P&P/Austen fan (like myself), you'll definitely notice the random and unexpected Austen/P&P references. I thought that was interesting and cool. Didn't expect that at all...Read my full Film Review: Gone Girl.
