Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice gets a Bollywood treatment.
Kiran Bingley: [as Balraj walks off to dance] Watch yourself, Darcy, he's about to transform into the Indian MC Hammer!
Kiran Bingley: Darcy's a great reader. Lalita Bakshi: In fact, I think a love of books is on his list for his ideal woman. Will Darcy: I think you've had one too many Sea Breezes. Kiran Bingley: I remember a very drunken night in Oxford when you recited the list. She has to be smart, speak several languages... Will Darcy: Allright Kiran, drop it. Kiran Bingley: No I recall she had to be athletic, voluptuous of course, graceful, witty, confident... Lalita Bakshi: I'm not surprised Darcy found a woman with a list like that. Does this mean you're an ideal man? Will Darcy: I'd guess you'd be a better judge than me.
Lalita Bakshi: [about Will] He's the most arrogant, conceited... Will Darcy: Would you like to dance?
Mr. Wickham: [Darcy and Lalita have just saved Lakhi from Wickham, Lalita slaps him and walks off] Lalita, it was always you. [Lakhi slaps him and walks off]
Lalita Bakshi: Arrogance, pride, vanity. Kiran Bingley: She certainly read you like a book Darcy.
Balraj: You, stop working and you, stop being such a coconut.
Mrs. Bakshi: I will end up living in that rotten house, full of spinsters with no grandchildren.
Lalita Bakshi: Mother thinks that any single man with big bucks is shopping for a wife. Jaya Bakshi: I'm embarrassed to say, but I hope he is. Lalita Bakshi: What, shopping or loaded? Jaya Bakshi: Well... both!
Will Darcy: I'm a hopeless dancer, but this looks like you just screw in a light bulb with one hand and pat the dog with the other. Lalita Bakshi: You know what? I suggest you find yourself a simple, traditional girl to teach you to dance like the natives.
Mr. Kholi: Such small caterpillars that turned into beautiful butterflies! And so like you... Madame butterfly
Will Darcy: There's nothing wrong with having standards, is there? Lalita Bakshi: No, as long as you don't force them on others.
Lalita Bakshi: I though we got rid of imperialists like you! Will Darcy: I'm not British, I'm American. Lalita Bakshi: Exactly!
Lalita Bakshi: You should be stirring your husband's dinner not trouble.
Mr. Kholi: You know what they say. No life without wife.
Lalita Bakshi: Five star comfort with a bit of culture thrown in? Well, I don't want you to turn India into a theme park.
Kiran Bingley: These girls are like naked live wires. If you get too close, you'll get an electric shock of love
