Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. "They'll have no carriages, no horses, hardly any servants, and they'll keep no company. Only conceive how comfortable they'll be."

Answer: Fanny Dashwood

At the very beginning of the movie, John Dashwood had promised his father that he would take care of his stepmother and three half sisters, after his father died. His wife, Fanny, talked him into giving the women only five hundred pounds a year. She was selfish and wanted more of the money for herself. Consequently the Dashwood daughters became very poor.

They could not even afford beef or sugar, let alone dowries for Elinor and Marianne. Later on in the movie, Willoughby did not marry Marianne because she was so poor.
2. "It's not my atlas anymore, it's their atlas!"

Answer: Margaret Dashwood

At Norland, the Dashwood house, Fanny and John Dashwood were coming to take the house away from the Dashwood sisters and their mother. Margaret, the youngest Dashwood girl, was very upset and hid in her tree house. Elinor told her she could play with her atlas if she came down. Margaret made this statement to Elinor about the atlas, but later came down.

She met Edward Ferrars, Fanny's brother, and took an immediate liking to him. Later, after the women moved away to a small cottage, Edward mailed the atlas to Margaret.
3. "How did you find the silver? Was it all genuine?"

Answer: Marianne Dashwood

When Fanny and John Dashwood arrived at Norland, Fanny immediately asked for the key to the silver cabinet. Marianne was mad at Fanny and complained to Elinor. Elinor just replied that Marianne had not even talked to Fanny all week. The next morning Marianne decided to ask about the silver. Later Fanny complained to Edward how spoiled and rude the sisters were. Edward defended them, which showed how much he cared for the women.
4. "Marianne Dashwood would no more think of me than she would of you, John."

Answer: Colonel Brandon

After Colonel Brandon first met Marianne, he fell in love with her instantly. The Colonel was talking to Sir John Middleton when he made this statement. Colonel Brandon loved Marianne so much, and was such a gentleman, he did not say anything when Marianne was in love with Willoughby. Later, after Willoughby gave up Marianne, the Colonel spent more time with her, and they were married at the end of the movie.
5. "Don't worry, he is quite safe."

Answer: John Willoughby

After Marianne and Margaret went out for a walk, it started to rain. Marianne tripped and fell, spraining her ankle in the process. Willoughby was riding by in the rain, and saw that Marianne needed help. When he got off his horse, he made sure to tell Margaret that the horse was safe, since he had not tethered it.

Then he helped take Marianne home, causing her to think of him as a hero and fall in love with him.
6. "Does she care for olives?"

Answer: Mrs. Jennings

After Marianne and Elinor saw Willoughby at the ball with his wife-to-be, he wrote Marianne a letter explaining that he was going to marry someone else, and to give him up. Marianne started crying and Elinor tried to comfort her. Mrs. Jennings came into the room and expressed her regrets to Marianne. Mrs. Jennings said she would try to cheer her up.

She then asked "Does she care for olives?" It was such a dumb thing to think of, since Marianne's heart had just been broken, that Elinor simply replied "I cannot tell you."
7. "Edward and I have been secretly engaged these five years."

Answer: Lucy Steele

The Dashwood women, Mrs. Jennings, her daughter, and Lucy Steele were socializing. Lucy then pulled Elinor aside and told her that she had been engaged to Edward for five years. Lucy and Edward's engagement was a great secret, and Lucy told Elinor in confidence. Obviouly this tortured Elinor throughout the movie.

She loved Edward, and Lucy was constantly talking about the engagement. Elinor could tell this to no one which just made her feel worse. Elinor later told Marianne everything, and for the rest of the movie, Marianne paid much closer attention to Elinor's feelings. Elinor did not find out until later that Edward loved her too.
8. "She'll be wet through when she returns."

Answer: Charlotte Palmer

After everybody left London, Marianne and Elinor had to listen to Mrs. Jennings talk on and on during the carriage ride. When they stopped at Charlotte Palmer's, Marianne went for a walk in the garden. When Elinor stopped watching Marianne at the window, Marianne walked up the hill to where Willoughby's estate was.

It started to rain really hard, and Colonel Brandon went to find Marianne. While everyone was waiting, Charlotte stated the obvious. Her husband even replied sarcastically "Thank you for pointing that out my dear."
9. "Do not leave me alone."

Answer: Elinor Dashwood

After Colonel Brandon brought Marianne back from the hill where she was watching Willoughby's estate, she got very sick from being out in the rain. The doctor did what he could, but told Elinor that she would have to prepare herself for Marianne's death. Marianne was very dear to Elinor, and so on hearing him say these words, Elinor became very upset.

At this point in time, Elinor thought that Edward did not love her, and if Marianne died, she would have no one to turn to. When Marianne's fever broke the next morning, Elinor was so relieved that they went immediately back to their cottage.
10. "My heart is, and always will be, yours."

Answer: Edward Ferrars

At the very end of the movie, Edward came to visit the Dashwood women at the cottage to see how they were doing and to talk to Elinor. When he arrived, he told them that he did not marry Lucy, and that Lucy loved his brother, Robert, instead. Elinor was so happy and surprised that she was sobbing hysterically. Edward then told Elinor that he loved her, and that he was sorry for everything. Then, Elinor and Edward got married at the end with Colonel Brandon and Marianne.
