] Actually, Brandon & Elinor are my favourites. I too, love that scene in the end but also the one where she begs Marianne not to die.
I like the scenes when Elinor gets to show her sarcastic side. Like when Marianne says, "What care I for colds when there is such a man?" And Elinor rejoins, "You will when your nose swells up." I just crack up. Too funny. A line JA would wish she had written. They don't use the line from the book when Marianne is going on and on about the trees at Norland and E says, "It is not everyone who has your passion for dead leaves," which is a favorite Elinor line of mine.
Oh, and also I like when everyone in the Dashwood family shuts herself in her room crying, and Elinor is left to drink the cup of tea in the stairwell.
