The Protaganists::

Elizabeth Bennet (P&P)

Elizabeth Bennet: Only the deepest love will persuade me into matrimony.

Jane Austen said it herself when she said that Elizabeth Bennet was "as delightful a character as ever appeared in print", she's intelligent, strong-willed, a little cheeky and sometimes a little to prejudiced for her own good.

Margaret Hale (N&S)

"Margaret could not help her looks; but the short curled upper lip, the round, massive up-turned chin, the manner of carrying her head, her movements, full of a soft feminine defiance, always gave strangers the impression of haughtiness."

Margaret Hale at first does give off the impression that she's a bit of a snob but as you get to know her you realise that she's also very well-rounded, intelligent, and kind. I think she does really well to remain so optimistic even after she's endured so much.

The Heroes::

Mr Darcy (P&P)

Elizabeth Bennet: Are you to proud Mr. Darcy? And would you consider pride a fault or a virtue?
Mr. Darcy: That I couldn't say.
Elizabeth Bennet: Because we're doing our best to find a fault in you.
Mr. Darcy: Maybe it's that I find it hard to forgive the follies and vices of others, or their offenses against me. My good opinion, once lost, is lost forever.

Fitzwilliam Darcy is arguably the most popular romantic hero in literature, and with good reason. Not only is he good-looking and wealthy but he overcomes his pride and actively changes his attitude in order to win over the woman he loves

Mr Thornton (N&S)

John Thornton: [When Margaret is leaving Milton in a carriage] Look back at me.

Thornton seems a little rough at first, but he's very honest, fair and loyal. He had to work his way up to earn his wealth and because of this he's very level-headed and realistic. Oh and deep down he's just a big romantic.

First Impressions::

In both instances the first impressions made between both couples are really really bad. Elizabeth overhears Darcy insulting her, deeming her 'barely tolerable, which in turn makes her believe him proud and arrogant. Margaret on the otherhand first sees Thornton when he is physically disciplining a worker in his mill, which forms her opinion that he is cruel and rather uncouth.

Social Interactions aka look at the pretty::

Elizabeth Bennet: Did I just agree to dance with Mr. Darcy?
Charlotte Lucas: I dare say you will find him amiable.
Elizabeth Bennet: It would be most inconvenient since I have sworn to loathe him for all eternity

Margaret Hale: Look Mr Thornton, I am learning Milton ways afterall.

Both of the protaganists just about take every oppurtunity to insult or openly challenge their male counterparts however they really can't deny their physical attraction to each other.


First Proposals::

Mr. Darcy: Miss Elizabeth. I have struggled in vain and I can bear it no longer. These past months have been a torment. I came to Rosings with the single object of seeing you... I had to see you. I have fought against my better judgment, my family's expectations, the inferiority of your birth by rank and circumstance. All these things I am willing to put aside and ask you to end my agony.
Elizabeth Bennet: I don't understand.
Mr. Darcy: I love you. Most ardently. Please do me the honor of accepting my hand.
Mr. Darcy: So this is your opinion of me. Thank you for explaining so fully. Perhaps these offences might have be overlooked had not your pride been hurt by my honesty...
Elizabeth Bennet: My pride?
Mr. Darcy: ...in admitting scruples about our relationship. Could you expect me to rejoice in the inferiority of your circumstances?
Elizabeth Bennet: And those are the words of a gentleman. From the first moment I met you, your arrogance and conceit, your selfish disdain for the feelings of others made me realize that you were the last man in the world I could ever be prevailed upon to marry.
Mr. Darcy: Forgive me, madam, for taking up so much of your time.

John Thornton: Miss Hale, I didn't just come here to thank you. I came... because... I think it... very likely... I know I've never found myself in this position before. It's... difficult to find the words. Miss Hale, my feelings for you... are very strong...
Margaret Hale: Please! Stop. Pray, please don't go any further.
John Thornton: Excuse me?
Margaret Hale: Please don't continue in that way. It's not the way of a gentleman.
John Thornton: I'm well aware that in your eyes at least, I'm not a gentleman. But I think I deserve to know why I am offensive.
Margaret Hale: It offends me that you should speak to me as if it were your... duty to rescue my reputation!
John Thornton: I spoke to you about my feelings because I love you; I had no thought for your reputation!
Margaret Hale: You think that because you are rich, and my father is in... reduced circumstances, that you can have me for your possession! I suppose I should expect no less from someone in trade!
John Thornton: I don't want to possess you! I wish to marry you because I love you!

after laying bare they're souls to the women they love both men get rejected in very rude manner and then go on to get mad about it.

Second Proposals (which aren't really proposals at all)::

Mr. Darcy: You must know... surely, you must know it was all for you. You are too generous to trifle with me. I believe you spoke with my aunt last night, and it has taught me to hope as I'd scarcely allowed myself before. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes have not changed, but one word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.
Elizabeth Bennet: Well then...your hands are cold

John Thornton: Where are you going?
Margaret Hale: To London. I've been to Milton.
John Thornton: You'll not guess where I've been.
[Thornton pulls a rose from Helstone out of his pocket]
Margaret Hale: You've been to Helsone! I thought those had all gone!
John Thornton: I found it in the hedge row. You have to look hard. Why were you in Milton?
Margaret Hale: On business. Well, that is, I have a business proposition. Oh dear, I need Henry to help me explain.
John Thornton: You don't need Henry to explain.
Margaret Hale: I have to get this right, It's a buisness proposition. I have some £15,000. It is lying in the bank at present, earning very little interest. Now, my financial advisors tell me that if you were to take this money and use it to run Marlborough Mills, you could give me a much better rate of interest. So you see, it is only a buisness matter, you'd not be obliged to me in any way. It is you who would be doing
[Thornton reaches down and grabs Margaret's hand]
Margaret Hale: me the service.
John Thornton: You're coming home with me?

i really don't think those scenes need an explanation.
