唐顿庄园第一季第七集_11

[INT. GREAT HALL - DAY]
LADY SYBIL
Carson said you were here.
MR BROMIDGE
Ah, just, er, checking that everything's being done right, milady.
LADY SYBIL
Only we never heard back. That is, Miss Dawson never heard back from you. About an interview.
MR BROMIDGE
Ah, yes, er, we--we got the young lady's letter. But the trouble is, she didn't have any experience of hard work that I could tell, so...
LADY SYBIL
Oh, but she's a very hard worker!
MR BROMIDGE
Oh, I couldn't find any proof of it. And she gave you as a reference when, er, you don't run a business, milady. Well, not that I'm aware of.
[Sybil turns to a housemaid passing through the hall.]

LADY SYBIL
Lily! Can you find Gwen and tell her to come to the hall, now.
LILY
Yes, milady.
[The maid exits and Sybil turns back to Bromidge.]
LADY SYBIL
The reason Gwen didn't give any more details is because she works here. As a housemaid.
MR BROMIDGE
Ah, and you thought that'd put me off?
LADY SYBIL
But she's taken a postal course and has good speeds in typing and Pittman shorthand. Test her.
MR BROMIDGE
I will if I like the look of her.
[Gwen rushes in.]

MR BROMIDGE
Ah, so, young lady, you thought I'd turn up my nose at a housemaid.
GWEN
I did, sir.
MR BROMIDGE
Well, my mother was a housemaid. I've got nothing against housemaids. They know about hard word and long hours, that's for sure.
GWEN
Well, I believe so, sir.
MR BROMIDGE
Right, well, is there somewhere we could talk?
LADY SYBIL
Gwen, take Mr Bromidge to the library. I'll see no one disturbs you.
GWEN
Okay.
[Gwen precedes Mr Bromidge into the next room and Sybil stands guard in the outer hall as Robert approaches.]

LADY SYBIL
Sorry, Papa, you can't go in there.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Why on earth not?
LADY SYBIL
Gwen's in there with Mr Bromidge. She's being interviewed.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
I cannot use my library because one of the housemaids is in there applying for another job?
LADY SYBIL
That's about the size of it.
[Robert sighs and walks away. Sybil looks at the library door excitedly.]

[INT. LONDON, MRS BATES'S HOUSE - DAY]
MRS BATES
So, what is it you want to know?
ANNA
I want to know the truth about the case against him. I want to know why the sergeant thought it was \"odd\". I want to know what Mr Bates isn't saying.
MRS BATES
Because you don't believe him to be guilty?
ANNA
No, I don't. I know he's not.
MRS BATES
Well... You're right, of course.
[Mrs Bates hands Anna a cup of tea.]
ANNA
Then who was it? Who was the thief?
MRS BATES
His wife, Vera.

[INT. MR CARSON'S OFFICE - DAY]
[William and Gwen stare at the telephone.]
WILLIAM
Who do you call? No one you know has got one.
GWEN
But they will have. You'll see.
MR CARSON
Might I inquire why my pantry has become a common room?
WILLIAM
Sorry, Mr Carson. But...do you know how it works?
MR CARSON
Of course I do.
DAISY
Will you show us?
MR CARSON
Certainly not! A telephone is not a toy, but a useful and valuable tool. Now, get back to your work.
[The servants leave and Mr Carson closes the door and stares at the telephone like the others just were. He picks up the ear piece gingerly and blows into it. Then he leans over and puts his ear to the mouthpiece and blows into the earpiece.]
