唐顿庄园第一季第七集_1

[INT. GREAT HALL - DAY]
[Mrs Hughes does her rounds as the housemaids clean the room.]
MRS HUGHES
Hurry up, girls, come on.
[00:00:36, INT. DRAWING ROOM - DAY]
[Mrs Hughes continues her rounds. A housemaid cleans the chandelier and steps down from
the ladder.]
MRS HUGHES
Come on, come on. You should be done here. They'll be back from the station any second now.

[INT. SERVANTS' CORRIDOR - DAY]
[Carson and Mrs Hughes descend the servants' stairs.]
MRS HUGHES
I haven't had a chance to ask, how was London?
MR CARSON
Oh, much as usual. Dirty, noisy, quite enjoyable.
MRS HUGHES
There was no need for you to come back a day early. I'm perfectly capable of getting the house ready.
MR CARSON
Of course you are. But I like to have the heavy luggage back and unpacked before they get
here.
MRS HUGHES
I suppose...
[Carson and Mrs Hughes suddenly make way as William almost runs into them with a tray of silver vases.]

MRS HUGHES
Steady, William! This isn't a race.
[William nods and exits.]
MRS HUGHES
Poor lad.
MR CARSON
But he did see her? I was worried when I took him to King's Cross.
MRS HUGHES
Yes, he had time to say goodbye.
MR CARSON
How is he now?
MRS HUGHES
Well, you've only got one mother, haven't you?
[Gwen rushes in holding some flowers.]
GWEN
They're here, Mrs Hughes.
[Carson and Mrs Hughes head for the stairs.]

July 1914
[00:01:37, EXT. DOWNTON ABBEY, FRONT WALK - DAY]
[The family exits the motorcar.]
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Hello, William. It's good to have you back.
--
[INT. GREAT HALL - DAY]
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
What a relief to be home.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Don't listen when His Lordship pretends not to enjoy the Season.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
When in Rome.
MRS HUGHES
Will Lady Mary be back soon?
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
She's staying on with my sister for a couple of weeks.
[The servants assist the family as they remove their travel clothes.]
MRS HUGHES
So Grantham House is closed?
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
It will be by the end of this week. Dear Mrs Hughes, I hope you've had some time to yourself while we've been away.

MRS HUGHES
I've tackled a few jobs that get forgotten about when the house is full.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Any local news?
MRS HUGHES
The main topic here is the murder of the Austrian Archduke.
MR CARSON
Here and everywhere else.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
I'm afraid we haven't heard the last of that. And how's William?
MR CARSON
Bearing up.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Poor chap. He has our sympathies. I think I'll wash the train off before dinner.
MR BATES
Very good, milord. I can unpack while you're bathing.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
I'll see you up there.

[The family and servants depart leaving only Cora and Mrs Hughes.]
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Oh, Mrs Hughes, have you had any thoughts about the garden party for the hospital?
MRS HUGHES
I've started on it, but there are things we need to talk about.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Oh, dear. That sounds like trouble. I'll take my hat off. Sybil?
[Sybil and Edith stop before they go up the stairs.]
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
You were a great success in London, darling. Well done.
[Sybil smiles and goes up the stairs. Edith looks at her mother.]
LADY EDITH
You never say that to me?
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Don't I?
[Cora takes Edith's hand and leads her up the steps.]
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
You were very helpful, dear. Thank you.

[INT. SERVANTS' CORRIDOR - DAY]
[Mrs Hughes has a word with Carson as they watch Mrs Patmore and Daisy through the
kitchen window.]
MRS HUGHES
I hate to spoil Her Ladyship's homecoming, but what are we going to do about Mrs Patmore? She's worse than when you left. Much worse. Oh, and I meant to ask - is there a decision? About Mr Bates leaving?
MR CARSON
Not yet. His Lordship wants the facts, and Mr Bates won't give them. So what are you going to say to Her Ladyship about Mrs Patmore?
MRS HUGHES (sigh)
I'm not sure. I don't want the poor woman sacked, but things cannot go on as they are.

[EXT. LONDON, PARK - DAY]
LADY ROSAMUND
There's nothing like an English summer, is there?
LADY MARY
Except an English winter.
LADY ROSAMUND
I'm sorry you haven't received more invitations. But then, after four seasons, one is less a debutant than a survivor.
LADY MARY
Hmm.
LADY ROSAMUND
My dear, is there anything you're not telling me?
LADY MARY
No.
LADY ROSAMUND
Only, one hears stories...
LADY MARY
There's nothing, Aunt Rosamund.
LADY ROSAMUND
So, have you decided? Whether or not to marry Cousin Matthew?

[Mary looks at Rosamund in surprise.]
LADY ROSAMUND
Oh, there's no secret Cora can keep for more than a month.
LADY MARY
You'd be surprised. I've told him I'll give him my answer the day I get back.
LADY ROSAMUND
Well, it would be very tidy. At least we can say that.
