My sound clips have been compressed for faster downloading time. So far no one has really had trouble opening them as long as they have a Window's Media Player. Some I've gathered from various places on the internet, others I have captured myself from the DVD. If you have any requests as to what scenes and /or lines you would like to see here, please let me know and I'll work on bringing them to you.
"The most beautiful thing in the world is a match well made..."
"As an old friend of the family I had to ask as soon as I got back... Who cried the most at the wedding?"
"One Instead of Two"
"Don't be too hard on Miss Taylor... it must be easier for her to have only one to please than two."
"Especially when one of us is such a troublesome creature."
"Mr. Knightley loves to find fault with me, that's all... It's his idea of a joke. "
"I am practically a brother to you, Emma. Is it not a brother's job to find fault with his sister?"
"Gone... but not Forgotten"
"She cannot sit and talk with me in the old way, or walk with me, or urge me to better myself."
"Well, that should not matter as you've always done just as you pleased."
"Generalizing about Men"
"One does not like to generalize about so many people all at once, Mr. Knightley, but you may be sure that men know nothing about their hearts, whether they be six and twenty, or six and eighty."
"True, he is not so genteel as Mr. Knightley, but..."
"No, there are not one in a hundred men who have 'gentlemen' so plainly written across them as Mr. Knightley."
"Writing the Answer"
"Emma... you wrote her answer, didn't you?"
"The most incomprehensible thing in the world to a man is a woman who rejects his offer of marriage!"
"Men of sense, whatever you may say, do not want silly wives!"
"Try not to kill my dogs."
"Emma in the Wrong"
"How fascinating that any discordancy between us must always arise from my being wrong."
"Not fascinating, but true."
"There is nothing worse than a sore throat; its effects are exceedingly bleak."
"Perhaps you dislike her because she divides our attentions from you."
"Really, Mr. Knightley, you are so comical you aught to perform in the town square!
"Is your horse just washing his feet or are the darker forces at work here?
"Mr. Knighley and Jane Fairfax are a couple."
" Mrs. Weston, do not take to matchmaking; you do it ill! Jane Fairfax and Mr. Knightley? Every feeling revolts!"
"Doesn't she play marvelously?" "
Yes. How sweet of you to have lent your carriage to her so that her fingers would be warm enough for the performance."
"Your playing was lovely."
"Much inferior to Miss Fairfax's."
"No, no. It was very... elegant."
"I can think of nothing less appealing than an evening of watching other people dance." You shall have to dance yourself. "I've no taste for it. I'd rather fetch that stick!" I shall try to remember to bring it to the ball.
"It should not be improper for us to dance... after all, we are not brother and sister!"
"Brother and sister? No, no! Indeed we are not."
"Jane Fairfax is a very charming young woman... but she lacks an open temper which a man wishes for in a wife."
"Oh, I cannot tell you how I felt when I saw him coming to my rescue. I went from agony to utter happiness at the sight of him!"
"Were she prosperous, or a woman equal to you in situation I would not quarrel about any liberties of manner. But she is poor! Even more so than when she was born. And should she live to be an old lady, she will sink further still. Her situation being in every way below you should secure your compassion! Badly done, Emma! .... Badly done."
"Thinking of Mr. Knightley"
"I tried not to think about him in the garden, where I thrice plucked the petals off a daisy to ascertain his feelings for Harriet... I don't think we should keep daisies in the garden; they are a drab little flower.
"Emma... Forgive me, uh, I was, um, I was lost... lost in my thoughts."
"My Mr. Knightley"
"Now I need not call you Mr. Knightley... I may call you my Mr. Knightley."
"This is the perfect end to my sad career as a matchmaker."
