Quote: Mr. Guppy, Bleak House 2005. (If you have seen it, you will recognize it.)

Quote: Mr. Woodhouse said that about Frank in the book. I quite agree.
I used that picture because it is a spot in the movie where he particularly annoys me.

Quote: Louisa Musgrove's famous (and almost fatal) line in Persuasion 2007
It doesn't really apply to Marianne Dashwood, but she always starts fainting on the movies and someone catches her. And I like to make fun of Louisa.
(...albeit behind one's napkin)
Picture and quote from Pride and Prejudice.
I just love that scene, and Mr. Bennet's quote "For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbours, and laugh at them in our turn?"
(Because Captain Wentworth didn't "catch" Louisa)
So, those two can be together or separate, whichever brings you more amusement.
Jo and Laurie said those lines in Little Women (1994)
(Jo and Laurie are really fun to quote, by the way...)
I'm just making fun of how the 2008 version seemed to turn S&S into a Gothic novel.
I just like Margaret's quote...
You wouldn't get this one unless you've seen "Old Quarrels, Old Love," a Road to Avonlea episode. And probably none of you have. But I wanted to make it anyways.
This is from the 1996 Miramax Emma... Emma was speaking of Jane Fairfax and complained to Mr. Knightley that "She wouldn't tell me anything about Frank Churchill." So I just adapted that into Mrs. Jennings quote "Lucy, if she tells you aught of the famous Mr. F, be sure to pass it on." And other times she calls him the elusive Mr. F. Most of you should know this.
Oh, and Frank starts with an 'F'...and he was quite elusive for a while there.
Harriet sometimes reminds me of Kitty Bennet, so I wanted to combine them.
Emma wasn't actually winking at her...she was just prompting her to say something and Harriet didn't quite understand.

Quote: Mrs. Elton, Emma 2009
So, those last two are supposed to be ironic because both the quotes were said by people who didn't really mean them; and I gave the quotes to people who would be quite sincere about it. And I do like the quotes myself.
Did you notice all the pictures were from Jane Austen movies? I wonder why...
