    37 Times Colin Firth Proved He's The Only Mr Darcy That Matters

    The One True Darcy.

    1. When he first appeared and was definitely the handsomest man you've ever seen. Or at least, the one with the best sideburns.

    BBC

    2. When he was clearly intrigued by Lizzy and, even though he'd just insulted her, he got all self-conscious because she looked like she was talking about him.

    BBC

    Darcy is really just a tall, socially anxious boy who doesn't know how to act in public.

    3. When he bumped into Lizzy after her long walk through the countryside and totally got a boner.

    BBC

    4. When Caroline tried to get him to insult Lizzy and he shut it down then sipped his tea.

    BBC

    5. When he got all smouldery after Lizzy walked in on him playing pool.

    BBC

    6. When he sat down like this.

    BBC

    Don't question it. It's good.

    7. When he actually dropped what he was doing and turned around in his chair to listen to Lizzy.

    BBC

    8. When he had a bath.

    BBC

    A wet Darcy is a good Darcy.

    9. When he slipped into this robe.

    BBC

    A robed Darcy is also a good Darcy.

    10. When he watched Lizzy playing with a dog and was super into it.

    BBC

    AND was wet and robed while he was at it.

    11. When he got all smouldery again as he watched Lizzy leave Netherfield.

    BBC

    He already had it bad, and he hated it.

    12. When he first saw Lizzy at the Netherfield Ball and was shook.

    BBC

    13. When he danced with Lizzy and there was so much delicious tension.

    BBC

    14. When he talked about her pleasure and my filthy mind Went There.

    BBC

    15. When he straight-up walked away from Mr Collins mid-sentence and it was frankly iconic.

    BBC

    16. When he got all flirty with Lizzy at Rosings.

    BBC

    17. When he showed up while Lizzy was alone and was super awkward and also not subtle at all about the fact he wanted to bone her.

    BBC

    18. When he totally fucked up his proposal but still managed to say some pretty sweet things.

    BBC

    Darcy what are you doing?

    19. When he was all angry and rejected but somehow looked hotter than ever.

    BBC

    That one curl dangling on his forehead! Also can we talk about how rather than lashing out at Lizzy he goes away and thinks and processes and actually changes for the better?? We stan a man who can handle rejection.

    20. When he stayed up all night to write a letter to Lizzy and was all angsty and Dramatic™.

    BBC

    21. When he released his frustration with his sword.

    BBC

    *cough*

    22. When he DID THE POND THING!!!

    BBC

    WET! DARCY!

    23. And then he just about died when he saw Lizzy at Pemberley.

    BBC

    24. And he got super, endearingly awkward.

    BBC

    25. And then he raced out of the house to stop her from leaving before he had even finished dressing.

    BBC

    26. When he really earnestly asked her opinion of Pemberley and was certifiably tickled that she approved.

    BBC

    This big, adorable dork!

    27. When he was surprisingly sweet to Lizzy's aunt and uncle.

    BBC

    You know what that is? GROWTH.

    28. When he was super keen to introduce Lizzy to his sister.

    BBC

    Your love is showing, Darcy.

    29. When he watched Lizzy play piano and it was clearly the greatest moment of his life.

    BBC

    WHAT. A. LOOK.

    30. And then he got all shy and self-conscious when he realised Lizzy and Georgiana were talking about him.

    BBC

    31. Then he was full of loving gratitude when Lizzy protected Georgiana from Caroline.

    BBC

    32. When he was extremely concerned and caring after Lizzy received the news about Lydia and Wickham.

    BBC

    33. When he cast Lizzy one last longing look before he left to save the day.

    BBC

    34. When he was reunited with Lizzy and the SMOULDER was back.

    BBC

    35. When he admitted he was still in love with Lizzy.

    BBC

    36. And called her "dearest, loveliest Elizabeth".

    BBC

    My name isn't even Elizabeth but I would still like him to call me exactly that phrase, please and thank you.

    37. And when he looked THIS happy to be marrying his love at last.

    BBC
