Pride And Prejudice Script - Dialogue TranscriptVoila! Finally, the Pride And Prejudice script is here for all you quotes spouting fans of the Jane Austen movie starring Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle. This script is a transcript that was painstakingly transcribed using the screenplay and/or viewings of Pride And Prejudice. I know, I know, I still need to get the cast names in there and I'll be eternally tweaking it, so if you have any corrections, feel free to drop me a line. You won't hurt my feelings. Honest. Swing on back to Drew's Script-O-Rama afterwards for more free movie scripts!
