唐顿庄园第一季第一集_7

[INT. GUEST BEDROOM - NIGHT]
THOMAS
I don't believe that.
DUKE OF CROWBOROUGH
Well, believe what you like. He won't break the entail. The unknown cousin gets everything and Mary's inheritance will be the same as it always was.
THOMAS
Well, how was I to know when the lawyer turned up?
DUKE OF CROWBOROUGH
You weren't to know. You did the right thing to telegraph me. It's just not gonna come off.
THOMAS
So, what now?
DUKE OF CROWBOROUGH
Well, you-- you know how I'm fixed. I have to have an heiress. If it means going to New York to find one.
THOMAS
What about me?

DUKE OF CROWBOROUGH
You...you will wish me well.
THOMAS
You said you'd find me a job if I wanted to leave.
DUKE OF CROWBOROUGH
Do you?
THOMAS
I want to be a valet. I'm sick of being a footman.
DUKE OF CROWBOROUGH
Yeah, Thomas, I don't need a valet. I--I thought you were getting rid of the new one here?
THOMAS
I'll have done it, but I'm not sure Carson's gonna let me take over.

[Thomas sits down and takes the duke's face in his hand.]
THOMAS
And I want to be with you.
[They kiss.]
DUKE OF CROWBOROUGH
I just can't see it working, can you? We don't seem to have the basis of a servant/master relationship, do we?
THOMAS
You came here to be with me.
DUKE OF CROWBOROUGH
Among other reasons. And one swallow doesn't make a summer.
THOMAS
Aren't you forgetting something?
DUKE OF CROWBOROUGH
What? Are you threatening me? Because of a youthful dalliance? A few-- a few weeks of madness in a London season? You wouldn't hold that against me, surely?

THOMAS
I would if I have to.
DUKE OF CROWBOROUGH
And who will believe a greedy footman over the words of a duke? If you're not careful, you'll end up behind bars.
THOMAS
I've got proof.
DUKE OF CROWBOROUGH
Mm. You mean these?
[The duke pulls out a bound stack of letters. Thomas dashes for them, but the duke throws them in the fire and wrestles keeps Thomas away as they burn.]
DUKE OF CROWBOROUGH
You know, my mother's always telling me, \"Never put anything in writing.\" And now, thanks to you, I never will again.
THOMAS
How did you get that? You bastard.
DUKE OF CROWBOROUGH
Don't be a bad loser, Thomas. Go to bed. Unless you want to stay.
[Thomas leaves angry.]

[INT. MRS HUGHES'S SITTING ROOM - NIGHT]
[Mr Carson knocks on the open door.]
MR CARSON
I think I'll turn in.
MRS HUGHES
No big announcement, then?
MR CARSON
No. Nor likely to be. He's off on the nine o'clock train.
MRS HUGHES
He never is. And when we've had a turkey killed for tomorrow's dinner. Well, I wonder what she did wrong.
MR CARSON
She did nothing wrong, not from the way His Lordship was talking.
MRS HUGHES
So His Grace turned out to be graceless. Hm.
MR CARSON
Goodnight, Mrs Hughes.
MRS HUGHES
Goodnight, Mr Carson.
