唐顿庄园第一季第二集_1

[THE VILLAGE - DAY]
[Matthew and Isobel ride in a motorcar.]
TAYLOR
Here we are, ma'am. Crawley House.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
For good or ill.
[The chauffeur opens the door for them.]
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
I still don't see why I couldn't just refuse it.
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
There's no mechanism for you to do so. You will be an earl. You will inherit the estate. Of course, you can throw it away with your habit, that's up to you.
[A man comes out to meet them.]
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
Can I help?
MR MOLESLEY
I'm Molesley, sir, your butler and valet.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
Mr Molesley, I'm afraid--
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
May I introduce ourselves? I am Mrs Crawley, and this is my son, Mr Matthew Crawley.
MR MOLESLEY (nods)
I'll just give Mr Taylor a hand with the cases.

MATTHEW CRAWLEY
I can--
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
Thank you, Molesley.
[Molesley helps with the luggage and Matthew sulks alongside his mother.]
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
I won't let them change me.
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
Why would they want to?
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
Mother, Lord Grantham has made the unwelcome discovery that heir is a middleclass lawyer and son of a middleclass doctor.
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
Upper middleclass.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
He'll have to limit the damage by turning me into me into one of his own kind.
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
When you met him in London, you liked him.

[INT. MAIN STAIRCASE - DAY]
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
I simply do not understand why we are rushing into this.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Matthew Crawley is my heir.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Patrick was your heir; he never lived here.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Patrick was in and out of this house since the day he was born. You saw how many of the village turned out for the service.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
But nothing's settled yet.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
It is settled, my dearest one, whether you like it or not.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
I wouldn't say that. Not while your mother breathes air.

[INT. CRAWLEY HOUSE - DAY]
[The Crawleys' housemaid leads them through the new house.]
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
Oh, Ellen. This is much better than I thought it would be. You have done well.
ELLEN
Thank you, ma'am.
MR MOLESLEY
Would you like this in here, ma'am, or taken up to your room?
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
In here, thank you. So, are you the whole of our new household?
MR MOLESLEY
There's a local girl, ma'am, Beth. She to double under housemaid and kitchen maid.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
This is ridiculous--
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
Thank you very much, Molesley. Might we have some tea?
MR MOLESLEY
Very good, ma'am.
[The servants leave.]
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
We can go right now.

ISOBEL CRAWLEY
Why?
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
Because we do not need a butler or a valet, if it comes to that. We've always managed perfectly well with a cook and a maid and they cannot expect us to alter our--
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
What they expect, Matthew, is that we won't know how to behave. So, if you don't mind, I would rather not confirm their expectations.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
I have to be myself, Mother. I'll be no use to anyone if I can't be myself. And before they, or you, get any ideas, I will choose my own wife.
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
What on earth do you mean?
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
Well, they're clearly going to push one of the daughters at me. They'll have fixed on that when they heard I was a bachelor.
[Molesley enters to announce...]
MR MOLESLEY
Lady Mary Crawley.
[Matthew turns, stunned.]

LADY MARY
I do hope I'm not interrupting.
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
Lady Mary.
LADY MARY
Cousin Mary, please. Mama has sent me down to welcome you and to ask you to dine with us tonight. Unless you're too tired.
[Matthew stares at Mary.]
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
We would be delighted.
LADY MARY
Good. Come at eight.
[Mary turns to go.]
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
Won't you stay and have some tea.
LADY MARY
Oh, no. You're far too busy.
[Mary finally looks at Matthew.]
LADY MARY
And I wouldn't want to push in.

[Matthew takes that blow for a moment before going after Mary outside. Mary is already astride her horse with a servant mounting another horse next to her.]
LADY MARY
Lynch, I think we'll go back by the south road.
LYNCH
Very good, my lady.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
Lady Mary, I hope you didn't misunderstand me. I was only joking.
LADY MARY
Of course. And I agree. The whole thing is a complete joke.
[Mary rides off.]

[INT. SERVANTS' HALL - EVENING]
THOMAS
So, what do you think we'll make of them?
MISS O'BRIEN
I shouldn't think much. She hasn't even got a lady's maid.
ANNA
It's not a capital offense.
MR BATES
She's got a maid; her name's Ellen. She came a day early.
MISS O'BRIEN
She's not a lady's maid. She's just a housemaid that fastens hooks and buttons when she has to. There's more to it than that, you know.
[Mrs Patmore shouts in the kitchens.]
MRS PATMORE
Daisy!
ANNA
We'll want some very precise reporting when dinner's over.
WILLIAM
Are we to treat him as the heir?
MISS O'BRIEN
Are we heck as like. A doctor's son from Manchester? Humph. He'll be lucky if he gets a civil word out of me.
ANNA
We're all lucky if we get a civil word out of you.

[Carson enters with a package and the other servants stand.]
MR CARSON
Gwen, parcel for you. Came by the evening post.
GWEN
Thank you, Mr Carson.
[Carson motions for the servants to sit.]
MR CARSON
William?
THOMAS
Have you seen him yet, Mr Carson?
MR CARSON
By \"them\", I assume you mean the new family, in which case, no. I have that pleasure to look forward to this evening.
[Mrs Patmore enters.]
MRS PATMORE
Daisy, did you hear me call, or have you gone selectively deaf?!
DAISY
No, Mrs Patmore.
MRS PATMORE
Then might I remind you we are preparing dinner for your future employer, and if it goes wrong, I'll be telling them why!
[Daisy rushes after Mrs Patmore.]

[INT. LADY MARY'S BEDROOM - EVENING]
LADY MARY
Why are they here at all when you're going to undo it?
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Your father's not convinced it can be undone.
LADY MARY
But you'll still try?
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Granny and I are willing to try.
LADY MARY
And Papa is not?
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
We'll bring him 'round, you'll see. We're trying to find lawyer who'll take it on. So, what are they like?
LADY MARY
She's nice enough, but he's...very full of himself.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Why do you say that?
LADY MARY
Just an impression. Let's go down and you can decide for yourself.
