"There Is a Time to Embrace and a Time to Refrain from Embracing"

Our favorite scene from the first episode of Tess of the d'Urbervilles had to be when Angel Clare carries each of the besotted milk maids across a gigantic puddle. Finally, sweeping up an embarrassed Tess, whom he compares to gossamer, he confesses "I didn't expect an event like this today." Lovely. You can watch the scene again here. --Kim
