唐顿庄园第一季第二集_4

[INT. DOWNTON COTTAGE HOSPITAL, WARD - DAY]
[Isobel wears a nurse's apron, she leans over a patient with a stethoscope.]
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
May I?
[Mr Drake nods.]
DR CLARKSON
I must compliment you, Mrs Crawley. When you made your offer, I thought you might be a great lady nurse and

faint at the sight of blood, but I see you're made of sterner stuff.
[Isobel steps aside with Dr Clarkson.]
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
It's definitely the heart. It's almost too quiet to hear at all.
DR CLARKSON
I'm afraid so.
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
I've been thinking about the treatments that are available. Considerable success has been achieved over

the last few years by draining the pericardial sac of the excess fluid and administering

adrenaline.

DR CLARKSON
Mrs Crawley, I appreciate your thoroughness.
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
But you're unwilling to try it?
DR CLARKSON
Injection of adrenaline is a comparatively new procedure.
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
It's a while ago now, but I saw my husband do it. I know how.
DR CLARKSON
Please, Mrs Crawley, don't--don't force me to be uncivil. We would be setting an impossible precedent when

every villager could--could demand the latest fad in treatment for each new cut and graze.
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
I would remind you that we're not talking of a cut or a graze, but the loss of a man's life and the ruin of

his family.
DR CLARKSON
Of course, but I beg you to see that it is...not reasonable.

[INT. SERVANTS' HALL - DAY]
MISS O'BRIEN
I'm sorry, but I have standards.
[Anna enters and sits down next to Bates.]
ANNA (whisper)
I've just seen something ever so odd.
MR BATES (whisper)
What?
MISS O'BRIEN
And if anyone thinks I'm going to pull my forelock and curtsy to this
[Cora enters.]
MISS O'BRIEN
Mr Nobody from Nowhere--
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
O'Brien.
[The servants stand.]
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Were you discussing Mr Crawley?
MISS O'BRIEN
Yes, milady.

CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Is it your place to do so?
MISS O'BRIEN
I've got my opinions, milady, same as anybody.
[Mrs Hughes enters.]
MRS HUGHES
Can I help Your Ladyship?
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
This is the button we're missing from my new evening coat, I found it lying on the gravel, but I was shocked

at the talk I heard as I came in. Mr Crawley is His Lordship's cousin and heir. You will, therefore, please

accord him the respect he's entitled to.
MISS O'BRIEN
But you don't like him yourself, milady. You never wanted him to--
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Your sailing perilously close to the wind, O'Brien. If we're to be friends, you will not speak in that way

again about the Crawleys or any member of Lord Grantham's family. Now, I'm going up to rest. Wake me at the

dressing gong.

[Cora leaves and the servants sit back down.]
THOMAS
I don't think that's fair. Not here in the servants' hall.
MISS O'BRIEN
I agree. If she was a real lady, she wouldn't have come down here. She'd have rung for me and given me the

button, that's all.
THOMAS
This isn't their territory, we can say what we like down here.
MRS HUGHES
Who says?
THOMAS
The law. And parliament. There is such a thing as free speech.
MRS HUGHES
Not when I'm in charge! Don't push your luck, Thomas. Now, tea's over. Back to work. You'd better take this.


[Mrs Hughes hands O'Brien Cora's coat button.]
MISS O'BRIEN
\"Friends.\" Who does she think she's fooling? We're not friends.
ANNA
No?
MISS O'BRIEN
No. And you're not friends with the girls, neither. We're servants, you and me, and they pay us to do as

we're told, that's all.

[INT. CRAWLEY HOUSE - EVENING]
[Molesley watches as Matthew tries to adjust his bowtie.]
MR MOLESLEY
May I...?
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
I can manage. Now, where have I put my cufflinks?
MR MOLESLEY
I thought these would make a change--
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
No, my usual ones.
[Matthew puts the cufflinks on himself.]
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
I know I'm a disappointment to you, Molesley, but it's no good. I'll never get used to being dressed like a

doll.
MR MOLESLEY
I'm only trying to help, sir.

MATTHEW CRAWLEY
Of course. And if I've offended you, I apologise. But surely you have better things to do.
MR MOLESLEY
This is my job, sir.
[Matthew puts on his own tailcoat.]
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
Well, it seems a very silly occupation for a grown man.
[Matthew turns around and sees Molesley's dismay.]
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
Look, I'm sorry if I'm...
[Matthew can't recover from what he just said.]
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
I'm sorry.
[Matthew leaves quickly and Molesley steps forward to help, but stops.]

[INT. LADY MARY'S BEDROOM - EVENING]
LADY SYBIL
Why are you so against him?
LADY MARY
Aside from the fact he's planning to steal our inheritance?
LADY EDITH
Your inheritance. It makes no difference to Sybil and me. We won't inherit, whatever happens.
LADY MARY
He isn't one of us.
LADY SYBIL
Cousin Freddy's studying for the bar, and so is Vivian McDonald.
[Edith sneaks a peek at a letter Mary received from Evelyn.]
LADY MARY
At Lincoln's Inn. Not sitting at a dirty little desk in Ripon. Besides, his father was a doctor.
LADY SYBIL
There's nothing wrong with doctors. We all need doctors.
LADY MARY
We all need crossing sweepers and draymen, too, it doesn't mean we have to dine with them.

CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Whom don't we have to dine with?
LADY EDITH
Mary doesn't care for Cousin Matthew.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Sybil, be a dear and fetch my black evening shawl. O'Brien knows which one.
[Sybil gets up to leave.]
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
And Edith, can you see if the drawing room's ready.
[Edith leaves, too.]
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Glad to catch you alone.
LADY MARY
You've driven the others away.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM (chuckles)
Perhaps I have.

[Cora looks at the flowers on Mary's vanity table.]
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Pretty. The point is, my dear, I don't want you, any of you...to feel you have to dislike Matthew.
LADY MARY
You dislike the idea of him.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
That was before he came. Now he's here, I don't see any future in it. Not the way things are.
LADY MARY
I don't believe a woman can be forced to give away all her money to a distant cousin of her husband's. Not

in the 20th century. It's too ludicrous for words.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
It's not as simple as that. The money isn't mine anymore. It forms a part of the estate.
LADY MARY
Even so, when a judge hears--
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
For once in your life, will you please just listen?!

[Mary is shocked by her mother's gruffness.]
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
I believe there's an answer which would secure your future and give you a position.
LADY MARY
You can't be serious.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Just think about it.
LADY MARY
I don't have to think about it. Marry a man who can barely hold his knife like a gentleman?
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM (laughs)
Oh, you exaggerate.
LADY MARY
You're American, you don't understand these things.
[Cora's jaw drops.]
LADY MARY
Have you mentioned this to Granny? Did she laugh?
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Why would she? It was her idea.
[It's Mary's turn to gape at her mother.]
