Peter Wight as Mr. Gardiner and Penelope Wilton as 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)

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