Elinor: Marianne, can you play something else? Mamma has been weeping since breakfast.
Marianne switches to a dirge.
Elinor: I meant something LESS mournful, dearest.
Fanny Dashwood: Oh, a cottage! How charming. A little cottage is always very snug.
(My current background is actually called named after this :)
Marianne: When is a man to be free from such wit if age and infirmity do not protect him?
Mrs. Dashwood: If Colonel Brandon is infirm then I am at death's door.
Elinor: It is a miracle your life has extended this far.
Marianne: Did you not hear him complain of a rheumatism in his shoulder?
Elinor: A slight ache was I believe his phrase
Edward: Miss Dashwood... Elinor, I must talk to you - something of great importance I need to tell you - about my education.
Elinor: Your education?
Edward: Yes, it was conducted oddly enough at Plymouth.
Edward: Yes, do you know it?
Mrs. Dashwood: I suppose you would have us live in a rabbit hutch.
Elinor: No, Mamma, a cottage will do.
Margaret: Then you should go live there, Fanny, and we'll stay at Norland.
Marianne (dreamily): Willoughby of Allenham. It's a good name, isn't it?
Elinor: Willoughby of Allenham left some very muddy footprints in the passage.
Margaret: Colonel Brandon's coming.
Marianne: Come, Margaret, we're going outside.
Margaret: What for?
Marianne: A healthy walk.
