唐顿庄园第一季第七集_6

[INT. SERVANTS' HALL - DAY]
DAISY
Maybe we should knit something.
MISS O'BRIEN
Oh, yes, I'm sure they'd love a pair of booties knitted by you.
WILLIAM
Or what about a Christening mug?
THOMAS
They can buy their own silver.
GWEN
Anything in the paper, Thomas?
THOMAS
They've arrested this Princip fellow and his gang. All Serbian and members of the Black Hand.
MISS O'BRIEN
\"The Black Hand\"? Oh, I don't like the sound of that.

MR BATES
I don't like the sound of any of it. War is on the way.
WILLIAM
Then we'll have to face it. As bravely as we can.
THOMAS
Thank you, Mr Cannon Fodder.
GWEN
Well, don't you think a war's coming?
THOMAS
Oh, there'll be a war, all right. It's time to prepare for it.
ANNA
The country, do you mean?
THOMAS
No, me.
MR BATES
You never disappoint.
[Carson enters and the servants stand.]

MR CARSON
Daisy? Run and find Mrs Patmore. His Lordship wants to see her in the library.
DAISY
His Lordship wants Mrs Patmore to go up to the library?
MR CARSON
That is what I said. And Anna, you're to come, too.
[Daisy goes to fetch Mrs Patmore. Carson exits.]
MISS O'BRIEN
And we thought the assassination of an archduke was a surprise.
[Anna leaves and they sit down. ]

[INT. LIBRARY - DAY]
[Carson enters]
MR CARSON
Mrs Patmore, my lord.
[Mrs Patmore and Anna enter and Robert rises from his desk.]
MRS PATMORE
Your Lordship, I know things haven't been quite right for a while, but I can assure you--
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Come in, Mrs Patmore.
[Mrs Patmore steps closer.]
MRS PATMORE
I promise you, milord, if I could just be allowed a bit more time--
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Mrs Patmore, I've not asked you here to give you your notice.
MRS PATMORE
Haven't you?
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
No. I understand you've had some trouble with your sight.
MRS PATMORE
That's just it! I know I could manage better if only--
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Please, Mrs Patmore...

ANNA
Let him speak. Beg pardon, milord.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Don't apologise. Now, on Dr Clarkson's recommendation, I'm sending you up to London to see an eye specialist at Moorfields. Anna will go with you and you'll stay with my sister Rosamund in her new house in Belgrave Square.
MRS PATMORE
I'm afraid I'm going to have to sit in your presence, milord.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Of course.
[Anna helps a weak kneed Mrs Patmore stumble into a chair.]
MRS PATMORE
B--but how will you get on here?
[Robert sits in a chair next to Mrs Patmore.]
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Well, Mrs Crawley is lending us her cook, Mrs Bird. She's coming over tomorrow. You'll be good enough to show her how things work.
MRS PATMORE
A--are the Crawleys to starve while I'm away?

ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
They'll eat here every evening. Now, my sister's butler will look after you. He's very nice. Anna, you won't mind a visit to London?
ANNA
No, milord. Thank you. It'll be an adventure.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
One with a happy ending, I hope.
[Robert stands and Mrs Patmore stands quickly. Anna takes her arm and they exit.]
[EXT. DOWNTON ABBEY, GROUNDS - DAY]
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
Let me get this clear. At Sybil's ball you said you'd give me your answer the day you got back, and now you say you will not.
LADY MARY
Why do we have to rush into it? I need to be sure, that's all.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
But you were sure. Shall I tell you what I think has altered you? My prospects. Because nothing else has changed.
LADY MARY
No.

MATTHEW CRAWLEY
Yes! If your mother's child is a boy, then he's the heir and I go back to living on my wits, and you'd rather not follow me there.
LADY MARY
Oh, Matthew, you always make everything so black and white.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
I think this is black and white. Do you love me enough to spend your life with me? If you don't, then say no. If you do, then say yes.
LADY MARY
I want to... Granny told me I should say yes now, then withdraw if you lost everything.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
To make that work, you'd have to be a good liar. Are you a good liar?
LADY MARY
Well, not good enough to try it, apparently.
