] ...therefore, Miss Emma Woodhouse has ordered me to ask you...." what are your most/least favorite scenes/lines from the movie(s) or book?
] My favorite scene is the proposal from Emma3, and subdividing that, it is the spot where Emma "stops him ungraciously" and he is looking down. I don't know what it is, but the dark eyelashes against his dark face with his dark hair (and I don't care about his high forehead!!!!) just makes me fall in love with him.
] My least favorite scene is the proposal from Emma2. (I know, I know, you Emma2ers think I ought to be pistol-whipped.) But, it is just too different from the book for my liking.
OK you asked for it Kathy! :o)
Even though "I am an old married" woman Kathy, I will oblige!
My favorite scene is the Emma2, "Leaving for John and Isabella's" scene. Its that Northam Magic at work again, when he gives her that exquisite look when she says, "I wish I was here sooner, so we could have talked." The man just melts me with that one glance (and double take!).
My favorite line...(a toss up) "Brother and Sister? No! Indeed we are not." OR "Marry me, my wonderful darling friend." Again, with just a few words and expressions Northam manages to rob me of all my faculties! The man can act!
My least favorite scene is also from Emma2 - the "I love John! I hate John!" scene in the Weston's garden. Yuck! Where on earth did they conceive of this piece of trash? It almost seems to be (after seeing the trailers) that they threw it in for the sake of promoting the movie. However, I do like the part just before it where Emma confesses her feelings to Mrs. Weston. It is the "John" discussion that I must FF thru every time!
Least favorite line: "Try not to kill my dogs." I think more than anything I dislike that scene, so the line automatically qualifies.
