6 Sentence Sunday with Next Clue in the PULSE AND PREJUDICE CHALLENGE!

 Six Sentence Sunday with the Next Clue in the Pop Culture Challenge!

What better way to reveal one of the pop culture references  listed on the Acknowledgements page of Pulse and Prejudice - the paranormal adaptation Jane Austen's classic, which retells the story from Mr. Darcy's point of view as a vampire - than to give you an actual passage from the novel that contains the allusion!

This is from a scene relatively early in the novel after Mr. Darcy has left Elizabeth in Hertfordshire and gone to London. He is now contemplating going to visit a lady of the night....
       As was the case more often than not with men of his rank and credit, Darcy was no stranger to the demimonde. His cousin Fitzwilliam, several years his senior, had introduced Darcy to the sins of the flesh before the latter had even graduated Harrow. Although certainly no rake, on occasion Darcy would swim the warm waters of sensual pleasure; and, had fate not intervened, in time he may have acquired a chère-amie for this purpose.
     Upon his metamorphosis, Darcy had been warned to refrain from this particular indulgence until he better understood his bloodlust and had it under control. He waited several months before returning to the cyprian he most favoured; but too much time had passed since his last meal, and she recoiled from his cold caress. Angry and humiliated, he had entranced her and taken her blood but not her body.
Whew~ This is quite a scene, if I do say so myself - especially now that I have some distance since having written it.
The pop culture reference should be obvious to those who have seen this particular film (most likely on many, many occasions!), but you'll find it in the first paragraph.

Thus far, I have given clues to the two most difficult references - William Faulkner and the film Sideways - and last week I gave a Beatles hint. I will be revealing a NEW CLUE EVERY WEEK from now until the end of the contest, so be sure to Follow this blog or "Like" my Facebook Author Page.
