There's a moment in Howards End when her character is trying to get her fiancé (Anthony Hopkins) to stop blabbering on and on about his past indiscretion with a prostitute and says tactfully "Let us speak no more about it." The way she delivers that is just perfect; my friends and I still quote that to this day.

Her reaction at the end of Sense & Sensibility (which she scripted) when she finds out Hugh Grant isn't married - its his brother who married that scheming trollop..

Gah, I love this woman.

Watching Alan Rickman's eye another woman's ass in The Song of Lunch. So much in one look.

Just about every moment she has in Howard's End is perfect, which is why she won the Oscar.

R12 totally agree. Love the part when she stands up to anthony hopkins and defends her sister among others.

Taking the book away from Anthony Hopkins in The Remains of the Day.

Hon. mentions:

Alone and able to reveal her torment after being so hurt by Alan Rickman in Love Actually.

Explaining to Kate Winslet that she is not the only member of the family with sense in Sense and Sensibility.

Learning that Hugh Grant is not married in Sense and Sensibiity.

The final scene with Eileen Atkins in Wit.

Every second of her performance in Howards End is perfection. The best acting Oscar of the 90s and one of the best ever.

I love that great moment at the end when she finally says to Henry "I'm leaving you, I must tend to my sister". Fantastic.

She can do no wrong. I heard her on NPR talking about the Peter Rabbit book she wrote. She was so charming and amusing, that I had an instant fantasy of her being my best friend.

You can read the interview at the link, but I'd recommend listening to it. It's the way she speaks and the words she uses. I think I'm in love with her.
