* Mary's guileless dismissal, in the BBC series, of Mr Collins when he arrives at Longbourne to sympathise (or rather, sermonise) with the family on the matter of Lydia's elopement with Bingley, and the dishonour it brings on their family. Mary suggests that Mr Collins risks association with that dishonour by being at their house - the mere thought of which is enough to send Mr Collins scampering away sharply.

* Darcy searching London for Wickham's confederate, Mrs Young, in the BBC version: we see him tramping tirelessly through the streets, interviewing the locals, and finally forcing his way into Mrs Young's house, his whole manner saying "either help me or get the hell out of my way."

-->'''Mr. Darcy:''' ''(who could contain himself no longer)'' Yes, but THAT was only when I first saw her, for it is many months since I have considered her as one of the handsomest women of my acquaintance.

* Elizabeth's [[TranquilFury tranquilly furious]] [[BreakTheHaughty telling off]] of Lady Catherine, when the latter essentially tries to bully her out of an engagement (which doesn't, at that point, actually exist) to Mr. Darcy. Having previously unnerved the woman in Kent by making it clear she does not worship her like just about everyone else who knows her, she now defends her right to marry whomever she pleases, and basically tells her to "Mind your own business!" Go, Elizabeth!

* Mr. Darcy's selfless heroic rescue of Lydia's -- and, therefore, the whole Bennett family's -- honor, which involves negotiation to his own financial loss with his ArchEnemy. Elizabeth spends a whole page swooning over the awesomeness of it.
* Mr. Bingley, finding out that Mr. Darcy kept him from seeing Jane, mans up the independence to escape Mr. Darcy's command to go and propose to Jane. (Mr. Darcy by that time was able to bless Mr. Bingley's decision.) Even better in the 1995 BBC version, where Bingley is clearly ''furious'' with Darcy. It's the only time in the whole story that he ever gets angry at all.
