唐顿庄园第一季第二集_5

[INT. DINING ROOM - EVENING]
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Have you been able to explore the village?
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
Indeed, I have. And I thought the hospital a great credit to your father's memory. But I'm afraid the good doctor and I did not see eye to eye.
VIOLET, DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM (chuckles)
Oh, you amaze me.
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
He is treating one of your tenant, John Drake, for dropsy, but seems reluctant to embrace some of the newer treatments.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Drake is a good man, and far too young to die, but I suppose the doctor knows his business.
VIOLET, DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Not as well as Mrs Crawley, apparently.
[Isobel tries to reply, but Robert steps in first.]
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
By the way, if ever you want to ride, just let Lynch know and he'll sort it out for you.
LADY MARY
Oh, Papa, Cousin Matthew doesn't ride.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
I ride.

LADY MARY
And do you hunt?
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
No, I don't hunt.
VIOLET, DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
I daresay there's not much opportunity in Manchester.
[Violet chuckles.]
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
Are you a hunting family?
LADY MARY
Families like ours are always hunting families.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Not always. Billy Skelton won't have them on his land.
LADY MARY
But all the Skeltons are mad.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
Do you hunt?
LADY MARY
Occasionally. I suppose you're more interested in books than country sport.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
I probably am. You'll tell me that's rather unhealthy.
LADY MARY
Not unhealthy. Just unusual...among our kind of people.
[Robert, Violet, and Isobel are all astonished at Mary's snobbery.]

[INT. SERVE ROOM - EVENING]
[Mr Carson meets Mrs Hughes as she brings up some plates.]
MRS HUGHES (whisper)
I'm changing 'round the dessert services.
MR CARSON
We're missing a sugar sifter. I know I put three out.
MRS HUGHES
I was talking to Anna earlier.
MR CARSON
Why? What's she been saying?
MRS HUGHES
Whatever's the matter?
MR CARSON
What did Anna say?
MRS HUGHES
Only that she thinks Thomas is bullying William.
MR CARSON
Ah. Yeah, she may have a point. I'll keep an eye out. Here it is.

[INT. DINING ROOM - EVENING]
LADY MARY
I've been studying the story of Andromeda, do you know it?
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
Why?
LADY MARY
Her father was King Cepheus, whose country was being ravaged by storms, and in the end, he decided the only way to appease the gods was to sacrifice his eldest daughter to a hideous sea monster. So, they chained her naked to a rock...
VIOLET, DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM (chuckles uncomfortably)
Really? Mary, we'll all need our smelling salts in a minute.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
But the sea monster didn't get her, did he?
[Sybil is transfixed by the story and the drama playing out right in front of her.]
LADY MARY
No. Just when it seemed he was the only solution to her father's problems, she was rescued.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
By Perseus.
[Some of the wind goes out of Mary's sails.]
LADY MARY
That's right. Perseus, son of a god. Rather more fitting, wouldn't you say?
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
That depends. I'd have to know more about the princess and the sea monster in question.

[INT. SERVANTS' HALL - EVENING]
[William plays piano while the others visit.]
DAISY
I wish I could dance like that.
THOMAS
Like what?
[Daisy holds up a book with dance steps mapped out.]
THOMAS
Don't you know the grizzly bear?
MR BATES (chuckles)
The grizzly bear. As if you do.
THOMAS
Certainly, I do. Miss O'Brien, shall we show them?
MISS O'BRIEN
Not likely.
[Anna and Bates laugh.]
THOMAS
William, give us a tune. Come on, Daisy.
ANNA
Go on.
THOMAS
Hands up.

[Thomas puts his hands up into claws and growls and the others laugh and clap as he moves forward to dance the grizzly bear with Daisy. Mrs Patmore comes in, wiping her brow.]
MRS PATMORE
Daisy. Daisy!
[The music and merriment stops.]
MRS PATMORE
Stop that silly nonsense before you put your joints out. See to the range and go to bed.
[Daisy turns to Thomas in awe.]
DAISY
Thank you, that was beautiful.
[The others clap and Thomas bows as Daisy leaves.]
