Pride and Prejudice Quotes from Novel to Film (Chapter 27)

Okay, it's been over a few months since I last posted about this here. Sorry if you've been waiting for the next chapter. I've been super busy that I haven't follow up with this, until now. So, continuing from my previous posts (Chapters 1-24), skipping Chapter's 25-26 (since no dialogue that were similar to the movie's script) and moving right on to Chapter 27. This chapter's quite different as far as the order of sequence this scene from book appeared in the film. If you have read the book and watch the 2005 film, you would know and noticed how this scene in the book appeared much later in the movie. The scene happened after Elizabeth went to Rosings (and she was about to go to Pemberley), but in the book it happened just before Rosings. Also, the lines/dialogue are quite similar (though a bit worded differently, but similar in meaning) from book to film, but there's a particular line in the book in this chapter that a different character said it ("Whar are men to rocks and mountains?") in the book (Elizabeth) and in the movie (Mary).

Pride and Prejudice 

Novel

Chapter IV of Volume 2 (Chapter 27)

"Oh! if that is all, I have a very poor opinion of young men who live in Derbyshire; and their intimate friends who live in Hertfordshire are not much better. I am sick of them all. Thank Heaven! I am going to-morrow where I shall find a man who has not one agreeable quality, who has neither manner nor sense to recommend him. Stupid men are the only ones worth knowing, after all.''

"Take care, Lizzy; that speech savours strongly of disappointment.''

"My dear, dear aunt,'' she rapturously cried, "what delight! what felicity! You give me fresh life and vigour. Adieu to disappointment and spleen. What are men to rocks and mountains? Oh! what hours of transport we shall spend! And when we do return, it shall not be like other travellers, without being able to give one accurate idea of any thing. We will know where we have gone -- we will recollect what we have seen. Lakes, mountains, and rivers shall not be jumbled together in our imaginations; nor, when we attempt to describe any particular scene, will we begin quarreling about its relative situation. Let our first effusions be less insupportable than those of the generality of travellers.''


Pride & Prejudice (2005)

Movie Script

"The glories of nature. What are men compared to rocks and mountains?" (Mary Bennet)




"
Believe me, men are either eaten up with arrogance or stupidity. If they are amiable, they're so easily led, they have no minds of their own whatsoever." (Elizabeth Bennet)



"
Oh, take care, my love, that savours strongly of bitterness." (Mrs. Gardiner)
