] 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!
You captured some of my very favorite Emma2 scenes as well. Especially the look he gives her after the first "Marry me?"--and yes, that "double take". I also like Emma's flashback of when he kisses her hand before leaving for John and Isabella's...The looks during the pianoforte scene...His rescue of Harriet at the ball and of Miss Bates at Box Hill. I still laugh at Miss Bates when she tells Mr. Elton that his sermon left the Bateses "quite speechless" and "they've been talking about it ever since!". Okay, one more comedic scene--when Emma and Harriet are talking about Mrs. Elton and she imagines that Mr. E must have met her at a mental infirmary.
Sorry this is so long, but this is one of my favorite subjects!
