唐顿庄园第一季第七集_8

[INT. SERVANTS' CORRIDOR/KITCHENS - DAY]
[Thomas enters through the back door. Mrs Patmore's whispering to Daisy.]
MRS PATMORE
I'm not saying poison them. Just make sure they don't find her food all that agreeable.
DAISY
By poisoning it?
MRS PATMORE
Will you stop that!
DAISY
You don't want it to taste nice.
MRS PATMORE
I want them to be glad when I get back. That's all.

[INT. OUTER HALL - DAY]
MR CARSON
This will be for the family and the one in my pantry is for the staff. Or, more precisely, me.
MR BROMIDGE
We don't normally provide two.
MR CARSON
Then perhaps we should find another supplier.
MR BROMIDGE
Hold your horses. Right. Where do you see this other telephone?
MR CARSON
Here in the outer hall.
[Carson sees Strallan enter through the open front door and he opens the inner door for him.]
SIR ANTHONY STRALLAN
Good afternoon, Carson. Is Lady Edith in?
LADY EDITH
I am!
[Edith enters.]

LADY EDITH
I most certainly am.
SIR ANTHONY STRALLAN
I was just driving past...
LADY EDITH
Yes?
SIR ANTHONY STRALLAN
And I thought you might like to come for a spin. If you're not too busy.
LADY EDITH
Wait till I get my coat.
[Sybil enters.]
MR BROMIDGE
Is it all right if I make some notes?
LADY SYBIL
I'm so sorry, Mr...?
MR CARSON
This is Mr Bromidge, my lady. He's here about the telephone.
LADY SYBIL
Oh! Please make your notes, dear Mr Bromidge.
[Bromidge nods.]

LADY SYBIL
We're so looking forward to it. What an exciting business to be in.
SIR ANTHONY STRALLAN
You must be expanding every day.
MR BROMIDGE
Ah, we are, sir. But, er, that brings its problems. Training up men for the work when many have no aptitude. Ha, I can't even find a secretary who can keep pace at the moment.
LADY SYBIL
What?
MR BROMIDGE
It's hard with a new concept. Too old, they can't change. Too young, and they've no experience.
LADY SYBIL
But have you filled the post yet? Because I know just the woman.
MR BROMIDGE
Well, she must hurry up. We'll, er, close the list tomorrow night.
LADY SYBIL
You'll have her application, I promise.
[Sybil exits.]

[EXT. LONDON, MOORFIELDS EYE HOSPITAL - DAY]
[A nurse exits the hospital and Anna and Mrs Patmore enter.]
--
[INT. LONDON, MOORFIELDS EYE HOSPITAL - DAY]
ANNA
This isn't bad at all, is it?
MRS PATMORE
I don't know. No one told me there'd be an actual operation.
ANNA
Well, what did you think? They were just going to make magic passes over your eyes?
[A doctor enters.]
DOCTOR
All right, Mrs...Patmore?
ANNA
She'll be fine, thank you.
DOCTOR
And you've been, er, sent to us by the Earl of Grantham?
ANNA
That's right.
DOCTOR
Very good. You can leave her now. We'll, er, keep her in for a week. You can collect her next Friday.
[Anna nods and the doctor leaves and Anna rubs Mrs Patmore's arm.]

ANNA
I'll be in to visit every day.
MRS PATMORE
What about the rest of the time?
ANNA
Don't worry.
[Anna collects her things and opens the door.]
ANNA
You'll be fine.
[Mrs Patmore nods and Anna leaves. Mrs Patmore takes out a handkerchief to try her eyes.]

[EXT. LONDON, PARK - DAY]
[Anna strolls through the park.]

[EXT. MILITARY OFFICES - DAY]
[Anna approaches a military building.]
NCO
Bates, you say?
ANNA
John Bates. He must have left the army about eight years ago.
NCO
Wait here, please.
[The NCO marches off and solutes to another soldier on his way. Anna sits on a bench to wait.]
