Pride and Prejudice Marathon

Pride and Prejudice 1940
We're bright! And bubbly!
And fluffy! And glossy too!
Who needs that old book?

Pride and Prejudice 2005
We are chic! And hip!
And broody! And romantic!
Who needs that old book?

Pride and Prejudice 1995
they used that old book
(excuse me if I don't care
for a drenched Darcy)

Bride and Prejudice
they sang and they danced
they even used that old book
color me impressed

Annie Hall
love drives you crazy
I, I'd like to give it up
but I need the eggs

Interiors
Dear Mr. Bergman,
I just love you to pieces.
Will you marry me?

God I love New York!
God I love George Gershwin too!
I run through the streets!
