唐顿庄园第一季第二集_6

[EXT. DOWNTON ABBEY, FRONT WALK - NIGHT]
VIOLET, DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
I'm sorry Mary was rather sharp this evening.
[Matthew chuckles.]
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
I doubt Cousin Mary and I are destined to be close friends.
VIOLET, DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Mmph.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
I don't blame her. Her father's home and her fortune are to be passed to me. It's very harsh.

[A thought strikes Violet.]
VIOLET, DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
What would you say if the entail was set aside in Mary's favour?
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
I should try to accept it with as good a grace as I could muster.
VIOLET, DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Would you?
[Violet steps towards the motorcar.]
VIOLET, DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Oh. Well, good evening Taylor.
TAYLOR
Good evening, milady.
[Taylor holds the door open for Violet.]
VIOLET, DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Thank you.

[INT. SILVER ROOM - NIGHT]
MRS HUGHES
I'll say goodnight, Mr Carson.
[Carson holds a candelabra.]
MR CARSON
Look at that scratch. We'll have to get that sorted out when they're up in London.
MRS HUGHES
You can hardly see it.
MR CARSON
Well, I'll know it's there.
MRS HUGHES
Are you all right now? Only, you seemed a little upset earlier.
MR CARSON
Y-- er, I'm sorry about that. I'm just, erm...a bit tired.

MRS HUGHES
And no wonder. Did the dinner go well?
MR CARSON
Er, well enough. But they won't make a match between them, if that's what they're thinking.
MRS HUGHES
Lady Mary doesn't like him?
MR CARSON
And why should she like the man she's been passed over for? And why has she been? That's what I'd like to

know.
MRS HUGHES
It's the law.
MR CARSON
Well, it's a wicked law.
[Carson closes the silver cabinet.]

[EXT. COURTYARD - DAY]
[Thomas is fixing a clock.]
MISS O'BRIEN
Why does Mr Carson let you do that?
THOMAS
Because my dad was a clockmaker.
MISS O'BRIEN
Did you really ask him for the job with the Crawleys?
THOMAS
I'm sick of being a footman.
MISS O'BRIEN
I'd rather be a footman than wait on someone who ought to be a footman himself.

THOMAS
Well, Mr Carson shouldn't have told Bates. How are things with Lady G?
MISS O'BRIEN
Same as usual.
THOMAS
\"Yes, milady. No, milady. Three bags full\"?
MISS O'BRIEN
I'd like to give her three bags full. Preferably on a dark night.
THOMAS
Will you hand in your notice?
MISS O'BRIEN
And let her ruin me with a nasty reference? Oh, I think not.

[INT. THE DOWER HOUSE - DAY]
DR CLARKSON
I don't want to exaggerate. She's been...very generous in many ways.
VIOLET, DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Generous? To instruct you in your own practice?
DR CLARKSON
Well, she may even have a point. But i--it does not seem to me realistic.
VIOLET, DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Well, nor is it. Put an end to her meddling. I am your president and I say, \"Get rid of her.\"
DR CLARKSON
Will that not be awkward? I gather she's planning to stay in the village for the foreseeable
future.
VIOLET, DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
No one can foresee the future, Doctor. Not you, not I, and certainly not Mrs Crawley.

[EXT. DOWNTON ABBEY, GROUNDS - DAY]
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
You do not love the place yet.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
Well, obviously it's--
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
No, you don't love it. You see a million bricks that may crumble, a thousand gutters and pipes that may

block and leak, and stone that will crack in the frost.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
But you don't?
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
I see my life's work.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
Was it ever in danger?
[Robert chuckles.]
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Many times. It's my dear papa who thought the balloon would go up in the 1880s
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
What saved it?
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Cora.

[INT. SERVANTS' HALL - DAY]
[Bates enters to find Anna sitting alone.]
MR BATES
Where is everyone?
ANNA
They've gone down to the village. Some travelling salesman set up at the pub for the afternoon.
MR BATES
Alone at last. We shouldn't be without both footmen. Does Mr Carson know?
ANNA
Mrs Hughes does. She's gone with them. They won't be long.
MR BATES
So, you see to the girls and you're supposed to be head housemaid. You should put in for a raise.
ANNA
What do you mean, \"supposed to be\"?
[The smile and chuckle. The front door bell rings.]
MR BATES
I said they shouldn't have let both footmen go.
ANNA
Well, you'll have to answer it. Mr Carson wouldn't like a maid answering the front door.
