Pride and Prejudice 


Chapter 1 of Volume 2 (Chapter 24)

Mr. Bennet treated the matter differently. "So, Lizzy,'' said he one day, "your sister is crossed in love I find. I congratulate her. Next to being married, a girl likes to be crossed in love a little now and then. It is something to think of, and gives her a sort of distinction among her companions. When is your turn to come? You will hardly bear to be long outdone by Jane. Now is your time. Here are officers enough at Meryton to disappoint all the young ladies in the country. Let Wickham be your man. He is a pleasant fellow, and would jilt you creditably.''

"Thank you, Sir, but a less agreeable man would satisfy me. We must not all expect Jane's good fortune.''

"True,'' said Mr. Bennet, "but it is a comfort to think that, whatever of that kind may befall you, you have an affectionate mother who will always make the most of it.''

Movie Script

"Poor Jane. Still, a girl likes to be crossed in love now and then.
It gives her something to think of, and a sort of distinction amongst her companions." (Mr. Bennet)

"I'm sure that will cheer her up, Papa." (Elizabeth Bennet)
Well, it's your turn now, Lizzie. You turned down Collins. You're free to go off and be jilted yourself. What about Mr Wickham? Well, he's a pleasant fellow and he'd do the job credibly." (Mr. Bennet)

"Father." (Lizzie)
And you have an affectionate mother,  who would make the most of it." (Mr. Bennet)
