唐顿庄园第一季第七集_13

[INT. MR CARSON'S OFFICE - DAY]
[Carson sits at his desk with the telephone in front of him. He picks up the earpiece correctly and speaks into the phone.]
MR CARSON
Hello, this is Downton Abbey. Carson, the butler, speaking.
[Carson hangs up the earpiece and considers for a moment. He picks the earpiece back up.]
MR CARSON
Hello. This is Mr Carson, the butler of Downton Abbey. To whom am I speaking?
[A voice sounds through the earpiece and Carson just about drops it in surprise.]
MR CARSON
I'm not shouting! Who are you?
OPERATOR
Mrs Gaunt.
MR CARSON
Oh, Mrs Gaunt.
OPERATOR
What number do you want?
MR CARSON
No, I don't want to place a call.
[Mrs Gaunt says something we can't hear.]
MR CARSON
I was practicing my answer.
[Mrs Gaunt says something we can't hear.]
MR CARSON
Well, I daresay a lot of the things you do sound stupid to other people!
[Carson hangs up.]

[INT. LADY GRANTHAM'S BEDROOM - DAY]
VIOLET, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
I've written to your mother. She's very anxious, naturally. She suggested coming over.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Oh, God.
VIOLET, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Yeah, well, that's what I thought. So I put her off, told her to come and admire the baby.
[O'Brien enters.]
MISS O'BRIEN
I'll just go and run Your Ladyship's bath.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Thank you, O'Brien.
VIOLET, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Oh, have you had any answers about the position?
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Quite a few.
[O'Brien listens from the bathroom.]
VIOLET, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
So what do they sound like?
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
There's one I think has real possibilities. She learned to do hair in Paris while she was working for the Ambassadress.
VIOLET, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Oh... Oh, that sounds promising.

[INT. LIBRARY - DAY]
[Robert is sitting at his desk when the door opens.]
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Carson, I've been meaning...
[Robert looks up.]
ANNA
You're Lordship.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Oh. Anna, you're back safely, then?
ANNA
Yes, thank you, milord. And Mrs Patmore's fighting fit again.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
\"Fighting fit\" is the phrase. Is something the matter?
ANNA
I wanted to see Your Lordship because...
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Please.
[Anna walks closer.]
ANNA
While I was in London, I learned something about Mr Bates.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Not bad, I hope.
ANNA
No. Not bad at all. I'd have told Mr Carson, but I thought you might like to hear it from me first.
ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Go on.
ANNA
You see, I went to call on Mr Bates's mother.

[INT. LADY GRANTHAM'S BATHROOM - DAY]
[Cora is taking her bath.]
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
O'Brien... how long do you think it takes a lady's maid to settle in?
MISS O'BRIEN
Depends on the maid, milady.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
'Course it does.
[Cora drops the bar of soap.]
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Oops. Sorry.
[O'Brien walks over and picks up the soap. A second bar of soap is next to it, but she leaves it there and hands Cora the soap.]
MISS O'BRIEN
The other half's under the bath.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Never mind. Thank you.
[O'Brien moves the soap with her foot so it's not under the bath.]
MISS O'BRIEN
I'll just go and sort out your clothes, milady.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Okay.
[O'Brien enters Cora's room and pauses when she grabs Cora's dress. She looks at herself in the mirror.]
MISS O'BRIEN
Sarah, O'Brien, this is not who you are.
[O'Brien turns back to the bathroom.]
MISS O'BRIEN
Milady, if you could just wait...
[Cora shouts as she falls in the bathroom and O'Brien stops.]
