About the most violent scene in Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" was the conversation between Miss Elizabeth Bennet and The Lady Catherine de Bourgh when The Lady Catherine demands that, if Mr. Darcy should ask Elizabeth to marry him, she will refuse him. Miss Elizabeth's rather heated answer sort of ripped the Lady Catherine a new one.
It was rather fun to see the pompous old dragon, used to having people kowtow to her and deferred to her every whim, get a pie in the face, even if it was only a verbal one.
