唐顿庄园第一季第一集_8

[INT. LADY GRANTHAM'S BEDROOM - NIGHT]
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
If you knew that was your decision, why put Mary through it?
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
But I didn't know it was my decision, my final decision, until tonight. But I find I cannot ruin the estate or hollow out the title for the sake of Mary, even with a better man than that.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
I try to understand, I just can't.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Why should you? Downton is in my blood and in my bones. It's not in yours. And I can no more be the cause of its destruction than I could betray my country. Besides, how was I to know he wouldn't take her without the money?
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Don't pretend to be a child because it suits you.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Do you think she would've been happy with a fortune hunter?
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
She might've been. I was.

ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Have you been happy? Really, have I made you happy?
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Yes. That is, since you fell in love with me. Which, if I remember correctly, was about a year after we were married.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Not a year. Not as long as that. But it wouldn't have happened for Mary.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Why not?
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Because I am so much nicer than the Duke of Crowborough.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
I'll be the judge of that.
[Cora turns off the light.]
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Just don't think I'm going to let it rest, Robert. I haven't given up by any means.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
I must do what my conscience tells me.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
And so must I. And I don't want you to think I'll let it rest.
[Robert blows out the candle on his side of the bed.]

[INT. GREAT HALL - MORNING]
MR CARSON
My lord, would it be acceptable for Bates to ride in front with Taylor? Otherwise it means getting the other car out. He and His Grace are catching the same train.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Perfectly acceptable. And if His Grace doesn't, he can lump it.
[Carson is pleased by Robert's response.]

[EXT. DOWNTON ABBEY, FRONT WALK - MORNING]
[Bates takes a last look at the house. The duke exits the house with Cora.]
DUKE OF CROWBOROUGH
You've been so kind, Lady Grantham, thank you.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Goodbye, Duke.
DUKE OF CROWBOROUGH
You will make my farewells to your delightful daughters?
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
They'd have been down if they'd known you were leaving so soon.
DUKE OF CROWBOROUGH
Alas, s--something's come up which has taken me quite by surprise.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Obviously.
[Robert joins them.]
DUKE OF CROWBOROUGH
Well, Grantham, this has been a highly enjoyable interlude.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Has it? And I feared it had proved a disappointment.
DUKE OF CROWBOROUGH
Not at all. Not at all, a short stay in your lovely house has driven away my cares.

[Thomas glares at the duke.]
CHAUFFEUR
We ought to go, my lord, if His Grace is to catch the train.
[The duke gets in the motor. Robert approaches Bates.]
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Goodbye, Bates. And good luck.
MR BATES
Good luck to you, my lord.
[Robert is discomfited as Bates gets in the motorcar. The chauffeur begins to drive away and Robert turns from heading inside to run after the car.]
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Wait!
[Carson walks briskly towards the car as Robert takes Bates's travel bag.]
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Get out, Bates.
DUKE OF CROWBOROUGH
I--I really mustn't be late.

[Robert ignores the duke.]
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Get back inside and we'll say no more about it.
[Bates takes his bag from Robert and heads inside. Robert closes the car door and watches Bates walk back to the house.]
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
It wasn't right, Carson. I just didn't think it was right.

[INT. MANCHESTER, CRAWLEY'S HOUSE - MORNING]
[Matthew Crawley and his mother, Isobel, are eating breakfast. A housemaid brings Isobel the post.]
ELLEN
First post, ma'am.
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
Thank you, Emma. One for you.
[Isobel hands a letter to Matthew.]
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
Mm. Thank you, Mother.
[Matthew opens the letter.]
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
It's from Lord Grantham.
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
Really? What on earth does he want?
[Matthew's jaw drops as he continues reading.]
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
He wants to change our lives.
