唐顿庄园第一季第七集_12

[INT. LONDON, MRS BATES'S HOUSE - DAY]
MRS BATES
She worked at the barracks sometimes, and helping at big dinners and so on. That night her opportunity came and she took it. They knew it was her. Someone even saw her with a big carry-all.
ANNA
But why did he confess?
MRS BATES (sigh)
Well... John wasn't the same man in those days. The African war had shaken him up and made him angry. He'd been wounded, and he drank a lot more than was good for him.
ANNA
Was he violent?
MRS BATES
No. No, not violent, but he could be hard at times, with a tongue like a razor. He felt he'd ruined Vera's life, Miss Smith.
ANNA
Do you agree with him?
MRS BATES
No. No, I thought she was a nasty piece of work. But that's why he took the blame.
ANNA
Surely, if everyone knew he was innocent...
MRS BATES
But he confessed. There was nothing anybody could do once he confessed.

[INT. GREAT HALL - DAY]
[Thomas escorts Dr Clarkson through the house.]
THOMAS
Could I ask you something, sir? Only...I get the feeling that a war's on the way.
[Thomas hands Dr Clarkson his medical bag.]
DR CLARKSON
I'm afraid we all do.
THOMAS
And when it comes, I want to be really useful to my country.
DR CLARKSON
How heartening.
THOMAS
S--so I've been thinking, what could be more useful than what you do? Bringing people back to health, back to life.
DR CLARKSON
I see. Well, erm, we are looking for volunteers to train for the Territorial Force hospitals, if that's what you mean.
THOMAS
It's exactly what I mean.
DR CLARKSON
Will you not be missed here?
THOMAS
Maybe. But we'll all be going, won't we? The younger men anyway.
DR CLARKSON
As you wish. I'll make inquiries.
THOMAS
Thank you very much, Doctor.
[They exit through the outer hall.]

[INT. LIBRARY - DAY]
[Carson pours a drink for Robert.]
MR CARSON
Mr Molesley walked in and there he was, as bold as brass, taking my wallet out of my change coat. Mr Molesley would have no reason to make it up, my lord. He doesn't know Thomas. Why would he lie?
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
So Thomas has been caught red-handed. Well, we knew he was a thief, didn't we?
MR CARSON
And now we have unimpeachable proof. I'm afraid he has to go.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM (sigh)
I hate this sort of thing. With Lady Grantham's condition and everything. Can we at least wait until after the garden party?
MR CARSON
Very well, my lord. But then, I think we must act.
[Robert nods.]

[INT. KITCHENS - DAY]
MRS HUGHES
How long will you wear them?
[Mrs Patmore is wearing sunglasses.]
MRS PATMORE
A week or so. But I can see much better already, even with them on.
[Daisy smiles.]
MRS HUGHES
Thank heaven. Now, we need to talk about the garden party. Mrs Bird and I have made some lists...
MRS PATMORE (scoffs)
Mrs Bird? Oh, I think we can manage without any help from Mrs Bird.
MRS BIRD
Can you? Well, if you want your garden party to be run by a Blind Pugh, that's your business.
MRS HUGHES
Mrs Patmore, there's a lot to be done and you're only just up on your feet. We really cannot manage without Mrs Bird.
MRS PATMORE
If you say so.

MRS HUGHES
Now, I've been checking the stores and I've ordered what you'll need for the baking.
MRS BIRD
That's very kind, Mrs Hughes. But, er, I believe we should check the stores when it's convenient.
MRS HUGHES
Mrs Bird, at Downton Abbey, the housekeeper manages the store cupboard, but I think you'll find...
MRS BIRD
I've never not run my own store cupboard in my life. Separate the cook for the store cupboard? Where's the sense in that?
MRS PATMORE
How long have I been saying this, O Lord?
MRS BIRD
We're the ones who cook it. We should be the ones to order it.
MRS PATMORE
Mrs Bird, I shall be very happy with your help with the garden party. I'm sure we can manage it easily between the two of us.
[Mrs Hughes is disconcerted, she fidgets and leaves. Daisy smiles in amusement.]
