I wonder at Kitty and Lydia,
that they are so fond of dancing.
I take little pleasure in a ball.
I would take pleasure, if there were
enough partners as agreeable as Jane's.
I believe the rewards of observation and reflection
are much greater.
Yes, when there are none others to be had.
We shall have to be philosophers, Mary.
Come, Darcy, I must have you dance!
I must. I hate to see you standing about
in this stupid manner!
You had much better dance!
I certainly shall not. At an assembly
such as this? It would be insupportable.
Your sisters are engaged.
You know it would punish me
to stand up with any other woman.
Good God, Darcy! I wouldn't be
as fastidious as you are for a kingdom!
Upon my honour,
I never met so many pleasant girls in my life!
Several of them uncommonly pretty.
You have been dancing
with the only handsome girl in the room.
Darcy, she is the most beautiful creature
I ever beheld.
There's one of her sisters.
She's very pretty too.
I daresay very agreeable.
She's tolerable, I suppose,
but not handsome enough to tempt me.
I'm in no humour to consider young ladies
who are slighted by other men.
Go back to your partner. Enjoy her smiles.
You're wasting your time on me.
