Pride and Prejudice Quotes from Novel to Film (Chapter 28)

Continuing from my previous posts (Chapters 1-27), and moving right on to Chapter 28, which was about Elizabeth Bennet visiting her newly married friend Charlotte (to her dreaded distant cousin, Mr. Collins, which she rejected his marriage proposal in previous chapters) at Hunsford. This is a very short chapter with a short comparison as far as words/lines mention from novel to film.

Pride and Prejudice 

Novel

Chapter V of Volume 2 (Chapter 28)

They were then, with no other delay than his pointing out the neatness of the entrance, taken into the house; and as soon as they were in the parlour, he welcomed them a second time with ostentatious formality to his humble abode, and punctually repeated all his wife's offers of refreshment.

"Yes, Miss Elizabeth, you will have the honour of seeing Lady Catherine de Bourgh on the ensuing Sunday at church, and I need not say you will be delighted with her. She is all affability and condescension, and I doubt not but you will be honoured with some portion of her notice when service is over. I have scarcely any hesitation in saying that she will include you and my sister Maria in every invitation with which she honours us during your stay here. Her behaviour to my dear Charlotte is charming. We dine at Rosings twice every week, and are never allowed to walk home. Her ladyship's carriage is regularly ordered for us. I should say, one of her ladyship's carriages, for she has several.''

``Oh, my dear Eliza! pray make haste and come into the dining-room, for there is such a sight to be seen! I will not tell you what it is. Make haste, and come down this moment.''

Elizabeth asked questions in vain; Maria would tell her nothing more, and down they ran into the dining-room, which fronted the lane, in quest of this wonder; it was two ladies stopping in a low phaeton at the garden gate.

``And is this all?'' cried Elizabeth. ``I expected at least that the pigs were got into the garden, and here is nothing but Lady Catherine and her daughter!''

``La! my dear,'' said Maria quite shocked at the mistake, ``it is not Lady Catherine. The old lady is Mrs. Jenkinson, who lives with them. The other is Miss De Bourgh. Only look at her. She is quite a little creature. Who would have thought she could be so thin and small!''

``She is abominably rude to keep Charlotte out of doors in all this wind. Why does she not come in?''
``Oh! Charlotte says, she hardly ever does. It is the greatest of favours when Miss De Bourgh comes in.''
