唐顿庄园第一季第二集_2

[INT. ENTRYWAY - EVENING]
[The footmen take the guests' coats as Robert enters.]
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Hello again. It's a pleasure to meet you at last, Mrs Crawley.
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
We're delighted to be here, aren't we, Matthew?
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
Delighted.
[Robert leads them into the great hall where the house staff are lined up as the family enters from the other side.]
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Welcome to Downton.
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
Thank you. You've been so kind.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
What a reception committee.

[The family is surprised and amused by his comment. Isobel senses the awkwardness of his comment and tries to recover.]
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
Yes, thank you.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
This is Carson. We'd all be lost without him. Mama, may I present Matthew Crawley and Mrs Crawley, my mother, Lady Grantham.
[Isobel steps forward and holds out her hand.]
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
What should we call each other?
VIOLET, DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Well, we could always start with Mrs Crawley and Lady Grantham.
[Cora steps forward to guide Isobel.]
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Come into the drawing room and we can make all the proper introductions.
[Violet looks at Carson, who tries to contain his amused smirk. The family moves into the next room.]

[INT. DINING ROOM - EVENING]
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Do you think you'll enjoy village life? It will be very quiet after life in the city.
VIOLET, DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Even Manchester.
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
I'm sure I'll find something to keep me busy.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
You might like the hospital.
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
What sort of hospital is it? How many beds?
VIOLET, DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Well, it--it isn't really a hospital.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Don't let Dr Clarkson hear you. He thinks it's second only to St Thomas's.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
It's a cottage hospital, of course, but quite well equipped.
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
Who pays for it?

VIOLET, DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Oh, good. Let's talk about money.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
My father gave the building and an endowment to run it. In a way, he set up his own memorial.
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
But how splendid.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
And Mr Lloyd George's new insurance measures will help.
[Mr Carson notices a tear in William's uniform coat.]
VIOLET, DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Please don't speak that man's name, we are about to eat.
[Thomas leans forward over Matthew's shoulder with the first dish.]
THOMAS
I will hold it steady and you can help yourself, sir.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
Yes, I know. Thank you.

[Robert notes the exchange and Mary smiles.]
LADY MARY
You'll soon get used to the way things are done here.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
If you mean that I'm accustomed to a very different life from this, then that is true.
LADY SYBIL
What will you do with your time?
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
I've got a job in Ripon. I said I'll start tomorrow.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
A job?
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
In a partnership. You might have heard of it, Havel and Carter. They need someone who understands industrial law, I'm glad to say. Although, I'm afraid most of it will be wills and conveyancing.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
You do know I mean to involve you in the running of the estate?
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
Oh, don't worry. There are plenty of hours in the day. And, of course, I'll have the weekend.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
We'll discuss this later. We mustn't bore the ladies.
VIOLET, DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
What--what is a weekend?

[INT. KITCHENS - EVENING]
DAISY
Why shouldn't he be a lawyer?
MISS O'BRIEN
Gentlemen don't work, silly. Not real gentlemen.
ANNA
Don't listen to her, Daisy.
MRS PATMORE
No, listen to me! And take those kidneys up to the serve room before I knock you down and serve your brains as fritters!
DAISY
Yes, Mrs Patmore!
ANNA
I wonder what that Mr Molesley make of them.
THOMAS
Poor old Molesley. I pity the man who's taken that job.
MR BATES
Then why did you apply for it?
THOMAS
I thought it might help me to get away from you, Mr Bates.

[INT. GREAT HALL - EVENING]
[The ladies exit the dining room.]
ISOBEL CRAWLEY (to Cora)
I'm so interested to see the hospital.
VIOLET, DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Mm, well, you would be with your late husband a doctor.
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
Not just my husband, my father and brother, too, and I trained as a nurse during the war.
VIOLET, DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Oh, fancy.
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
I'd love to be involved in some way.
VIOLET, DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Well, you could always help with the bring and buy sale next month. That would be most appreciated.
[The girls exchange amused smiles as they follow behind. Thomas bows as they pass his post.]

[INT. SERVANTS' CORRIDOR - EVENING]
[Thomas talks to a housemaid on their way down the stairs.]
THOMAS
I should say so. She's a match for the old lady. She wasn't going to give in.
MR CARSON
What old lady are you referring to, Thomas? You cannot mean Her Ladyship the Dowager Countess. Not if you wish to remain in this house.
THOMAS
No, Mr Carson.
[Carson passes Thomas to enter the servants' hall where William is playing the piano as the others visit with each other. They stand as Carson enters.]
MR CARSON
William? Are you aware the seam at your shoulder is coming apart?
WILLIAM
I--I felt it go a bit earlier. I'll mend it when we turn in.
MR CARSON
You will mend it now and you will never again appear in public in a similar state of undress.
WILLIAM
No, Mr Carson.
MR CARSON
To progress in your chosen career, William, you must remember that a good servant at all times retains a sense of pride and dignity that reflects the pride and dignity of the family he serves. And never make me remind you of it again.

[Carson leaves.]
DAISY
I'll do it.
[Daisy helps William remove his coat.]
DAISY
And cheer up. We've all had a smack from Mr Carson.
ANNA
You'll be the butler yourself one day. Then you'll do the smacking.
WILLIAM
I could never be like him. I bet he comes from a line of butlers that goes back to the conqueror.
MR BATES
He learned his business and so will you. Even Mr Carson wasn't born standing to attention.
THOMAS
I hope not for his mother's sake.
