Pride and Prejudice (1995): Part Two

Those Darcy Moments

A minute-to-second guide to when Darcy appears on screen – taken from the US 2-disc Special Edition. In bold are my best moments.

31:10 Telling Wickham Darcy improves on closer acquaintance
33:50 Heading to Derbyshire
35:14 “I shall conquer this!”
38:20 Pemberley
40:18 “Of all this I might have been mistress.”
41:51 Is Darcy good after all?
43:19 I see a small lake
43:48 Lizzie visibly softens as she stares at Darcy’s portrait
43:55 The coat is coming off
44:01 The cravat is coming off
44:06 The green waistcoat is coming off
44:19 The boots must be off because…
44:30 SPLASH!

44:40 Lizzie is oblivious in the garden
44:50 Lovely wet tendrils of dark curls dripping sown onto a shirt transparent with dampness
44:57 Whose pulse is not racing, whose stomach is not in knots?
45:20 I can hardly stand it…
45:22 Oh Lizzie, you have no idea girlfriend
45:30 AWKWARD – ground swallow me now!
45:35 What the…
45:37 Mr Darcy!?
45:40 Miss Bennet!?
45:41 Yes, yes, everone is in good health

46:29 Darcy escapes
46:44 Lizzie is mortified
