Persuasion "Miss Elliot, I can bear this no longer. You pierce my soul. I'm half agony, half hope. Unjust I may have been. Weak and resentful I have been, but never inconstant. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it eight years ago." (I love Jane Austen)

Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen.  This book/movie is very light-hearted, though not as witty as some of Austen's other works. Henry Tilney, however is a much more agreeable person than, dare I say it,  Mr. Darcy?  Also, Tilney understands muslin. : )

Jane Austen on Emma " I am going to take a heroine whom no one but myself will much like" why do I like Emma's  character so much then? What does that say about me?

Emma, the miniseries, with Romola Garai. I do like this better than the Paltrow version, but not as much as I do with the Beckinsale.
