唐顿庄园第一季第七集_9

[INT. KITCHENS - DAY]
[Mrs Bird checks on Daisy's cooking.]
MRS BIRD
Have you finished the soup?
DAISY
I think so, Mrs Bird.
[Mrs Bird leans in to check it.]
MRS BIRD
And the sauce for the fish?
DAISY
Yes, Mrs Bird.
MRS BIRD
Well, then, put them in the warmer.
[Daisy rushes nervously to the sink, grabs the soap and a grater and grates it into the soup, checking to make sure no one's looking.]

[EXT. MILITARY OFFICES - DAY]
[The NCO returns with a record book. Anna stands.]
NCO
You don't mean John Bates who went to prison for theft?
ANNA
That's correct.
NCO
Well, I know who he is right enough. That was an odd business.
ANNA
Why \"odd\"?
NCO
Never mind.
[The NCO closes the book.]
NCO
So you're his cousin and you'd like to be in touch?
[Anna nods.]
NCO
Very forgiving. Well, I've got no address for him or his wife. But I have got one for his mother, which should still be good. I've written it down for you.
[The NCO hands Anna the note.]
ANNA
Thank you for your trouble.
[The NCO nods and marches off.]

[INT. UPSTAIRS CORRIDOR - DAY]
[Mary waits for Edith to walk by and grabs her arm.]
LADY MARY
Is it true you wrote to the Turkish ambassador about Kemal?
LADY EDITH
Who told you?
LADY MARY
Someone who knows that you did.
LADY EDITH
Then why are you asking?
LADY MARY
Because I wanted to give you one last chance to deny it.
LADY EDITH
And what if I did? He had a right to know how his countryman died. In the arms of a slut.
[Edith leaves and Mary is shocked by her words.]

[INT. DRAWING ROOM - EVENING]
VIOLET, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
How's that advertisement getting on for the new maid?
[Thomas takes the tea cup that Violet set down.]
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Well, it's only just come out.
MR CARSON
William and I can manage here now. Go and tell Mrs Bird we'll have our dinner in twenty minutes.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Carson, be sure to say to Mrs Bird the dinner was really delicious.
[Carson nods proudly. Cora moves to sit across from Edith. Mary is behind her.]
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
So, how was the drive?
[Edith smiles.]

LADY EDITH
It was lovely. Only...
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM (background)
They are now. When they're in London, at least.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Yes?
LADY EDITH
Well, he said he had a question for me. He told me he'd ask it at the garden party, and he hopes I'll say yes.
[Mary rolls her eyes.]
ISOBEL CRAWLEY (background)
Yes, I could.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM (background)
Carson's very wary...
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
You must think very carefully what our answer will be.
LADY MARY
Yes, I should think very carefully about a lot of things.
[Edith's smile fades and Mary gets up to move. Matthew watches her.]

ISOBEL CRAWLEY
Do your neighbours have one?
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Yes, they do, in London anyway.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
It seems very wise to get a telephone now. If there is a war, it may be very hard to have one installed in a private house.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Well, let me show you where we're going to put it.
MATTHEW CRAWLEY
Oh.
[Matthew and Robert leave. Isobel refuses to look at Violet, whom she's still angry with.]
VIOLET, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
First electricity, now telephones. Sometimes I feel as if I were living in a--an H.G. Wells novel. But the young are all so calm about change, aren't they? Look at Matthew. I do admire him.
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
Do you?
[Violet looks at Isobel and lowers her glass.]
VIOLET, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
What have I done wrong now?
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
Oh. please. Don't pretend Mary's sudden reluctance can't be traced back to you.
VIOLET, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Well, I shall pretend it. I told her to take him. Your quarrel is with my daughter Rosamund, not me.
[Isobel finally looks at Violet.]
VIOLET, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
So, put that in your pipe and smoke it.
[Carson is struck by Violet's comment and chuckles.]
