* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Completely subverted with Darcy. The problems of making snap judgments based on first impressions is a major theme of the novel, and Darcy's turning out to be nothing like the icy, indifferent man he seems at first is an illustration of it.

In terms of modern adapations, there's always the ''Literature/BridgetJones'' franchise, which takes on this, and then Austen's ''Literature/{{Persuasion}}'' for its sequel. More recently, ''TheLizzieBennetDiaries'', a modernised adaptation (headed in part by [[Music/HankGreen Hank]] [[WebVideo/VlogBrothers Green]]), began airing on Website/YouTube in early 2012 in the form of a [[CharacterBlog video blog]]. In this version there are three Bennet sisters (Jane, Lizzie and Lydia) and Charlotte's role is greatly expanded. Oh, and there's ''VideoGame/MatchesAndMatrimony'', a DatingSim.

* EsotericHappyEnding: Invoked by Lizzie when Lydia and Wickham marry. Everyone else is celebrating because it means her reputation (and, by extension, the family's) is saved. Lizzie's internal monologue points out that Wickham is no prize either as a husband or a brother-in-law, and that it's terrible circumstances indeed that make this seem like a "happy" ending. Indeed, in the WhereAreTheyNow sum up at the end, Wickham quickly loses whatever regard he had for his wife and vice versa.
