唐顿庄园第一季第七集_7

[INT. LORD GRANTHAM'S DRESSING ROOM - DAY]
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
How could you not have realised they'd discover the loss at once? And to keep them in your house... But you only served two years?
MR BATES
That's right, my lord.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
So, clearly the judge thought there was some mitigating factor. I just want to know the truth.
MR BATES
I cannot speak of it, milord. You must decide whether I stay or go on the basis of the evidence before you. I will respect that.
[Bates holds out Robert's tailcoat and Robert puts it on.]

[INT. SERVANTS' CORRIDOR - DAY]
ANNA
Sorry, I don't believe it.
MR BATES
How can you say that? When I've confessed to the crime?
ANNA
Well, His Lordship obviously doesn't think that's all there is to it, and I don't either.
MRS PATMORE (background)
Daisy, have you finished...
[Mrs Hughes approaches.]
MRS HUGHES
Anna, are you set for the nine o'clock train tomorrow?
ANNA
All packed and ready.
MRS HUGHES
You'll be met at King's Cross by Lady Rosamund's chauffeur, which I think is generous, but after that you're on your own. Right. I must get on. I'm acting referee for Mrs Patmore and Mrs Bird.
MR BATES
Best of luck.
[Mrs Hughes chuckles lightly and walks on.]

ANNA
Will you miss me?
[Bates smiles.]
MR BATES
Try not to miss me. It'll be good practice.
[Bates leaves.]

[INT. KITCHENS - DAY]
MRS PATMORE
I expect it'll be hard adjusting to this kitchen after the one you're used to.
MRS BIRD
Not to worry, I'm sure I can have it cleaned up in no time.
MRS PATMORE
Cleaned up?
MRS BIRD
I'm not criticising. With your eyesight, it's a wonder you could see the pots at all.
[Mrs Hughes enters.]
MRS HUGHES
You'll have met Daisy and the others?
MRS BIRD
I have. Though what they all find to do is a mystery to me.
MRS PATMORE
Are you not used to managing staff, Mrs Bird?
[Anna and Molesley watch the conversation from the kitchen window.]

MRS BIRD
I'm used to getting it done with one kitchen maid, Mrs Patmore, but I suppose in a house like this, you expect to take it easy.
[Mrs Patmore puts down her baking spoon at that.]
ANNA
Do you think we should erect a ring and let them fight it out?
[Molesley chuckles.]
MR MOLESLEY
She's all right, Mrs Bird. She's more of a general than a trooper, but you need that in a cook.
ANNA (chuckles)
Well, Mrs Patmore's the Generalissimo.
[Molesley laughs.]

[INT. CRAWLEY HOUSE - DAY]
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
Well, I'm very sad. I thought Mary was made of better stuff.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
Don't speak against her.
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
Of course, she's taken advice from someone with false and greedy values.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
Oh, Mother.
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
And we don't have to go too far to know who that is!
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
Mother!
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
I've a good mind to--
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
You are not to go near Cousin Violet. That is an order.

[INT. CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM'S BEDROOM - DAY]
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Something's not right about it.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
I agree. Having a silver thief in the house does not seem right at all. Even if he could walk.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
But Carson isn't keen to get rid of him, either, and he normally comes down on this sort of thing like a ton of bricks.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
What's his reasoning?
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
He blames Thomas and O'Brien. He says they've been working against Bates since he got here.
[O'Brien enters in the background.]

CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
So I should sack O'Brien instead?
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
You'll hear no argument from me.
MISS O'BRIEN
This should do the trick, milady.
[Cora is startled. She turns to Robert and sighs in frustration.]

[EXT. COURTYARD - DAY]
[Thomas and O'Brien take a smoke break.]
MISS O'BRIEN
Ten years of my life that's what I've given her. Ten bloody years
THOMAS
But did she say she'd sack you?
MISS O'BRIEN
It's obviously what he wants.
THOMAS
So when will they tell you?
MISS O'BRIEN
When they've found a replacement. Heaven forfend she should have to put a comb through her own hair. And if I'm going, you won't be far behind.
THOMAS
Oh, so what? Sod 'em. There's a war coming and war means change. We should be making
plans.
MISS O'BRIEN
What you talking about?
THOMAS
Well, put it like this. I don't want to be a footman anymore, but I don't intend to be killed in battle, neither.
[Thomas finishes his cigarette and walks back to the house.]
