Now-Kathy. I thought we had reached some common ground-gotten away from all the "rabid", "wild west shoot 'em up" rhetoric.
Indeed! Please refrain!
And granted, McGrath added his own delightful words to the proposal scene-but for me, the spirit was there. Its magic.
And Emma3 wasn't completely faithful either-KB's tepid: "I love you. I think I always have."
Granted. ;-) I've always wished that they had some other words, but JA didn't write any for any lady's acceptance, so we have to make do with the screenwriters.'
Just as every man has his level, every woman has her limits. Austen pressed hers with 1) proposal conversations, and 2) Mansfield Park. In the case of the former, she learned to leave well enough alone.
