唐顿庄园第二季第七集_10

[INT. DRAWING ROOM - EVENING]

LADY EDITH
Will it be April or May?

VIOLET, DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
I should steer clear of May. Marry in May, rue the day.

LAVINIA
I think it‘s April. Matthew should be walking normally by then.

LADY EDITH
Spring weddings are the prettiest of all.
[Across the room.]

SIR RICHARD CARLISLE
All this talk of weddings is making me impatient.

LADY MARY
I don‘t think we can go into competition with Matthew and Lavinia, do you?

SIR RICHARD CARLISLE
After them, in the summer, let‘s settle it before I return to London. You must be looking forward to travelling again. I know I am.

LADY MARY
Very well, the end of July. Then we can be out of England for August.

SIR RICHARD CARLISLE
You don‘t sound very excited.

LADY MARY
To quote you, ―That‘s not who we are.‖ And there‘s something I‘ve been meaning to ask you.
[Matthew wheels himself into the room.]

LADY EDITH
Hail to the hero.

ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Ah, here we are.

LADY MARY
Why did you try to bribe Anna?

SIR RICHARD CARLISLE
She told you, did she?

LADY MARY
She didn‘t. Not me. But why did you do it?

[Matthew stops by the fireplace and Lavinia asks him if he wants help getting up with a look. Matthew holds out a hand. He‘ll do it himself.]

LADY MARY
Next time if you want to know anything, just ask me.
[Matthew stands up.]

ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Well done.

[They applaud.]
SIR RICHARD CARLISLE
All right, then. I will. Once and for all, are you still in love with Matthew Crawley?

LADY MARY
Of course not. Would I ever admit to loving a man who preferred someone else over me?
[Mary walks away and sits down next to Violet.]

VIOLET, DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
...find it rather a chore these days.

LADY MARY
Where‘s Sybil?

LADY EDITH
She‘s not feeling well. She told Anna she wouldn‘t be down for dinner.

[INT. SERVANTS' HALL - EVENING]

ANNA
What is it?

MR BATES
I heard from my lawyer today. Apparently Vera wrote to a friend just before my last visit.

ANNA
Why are they telling you now?

MR BATES
It was only delivered a few days ago.

ANNA
Do you know what the letter says?

MR BATES
They send me a copy.

[Bates pulls it out of his jacket pocket and hands it to Anna. She opens it.]

ANNA
"John has written he's coming here tonight. His words sound as angry as I've ever heard him, and you know how angry that is. I never thought I'd say this, but I'm afraid for my life." But what did you write to her?

[Bates waits for a servant to pass by.]
MR BATES
I said I was coming that evening, that I meant to have it out with her. Now, I may have said she
was being unreasonable, but so she was.

ANNA
Will it change anything?

MR BATES
Well, think about it. Before Vera's death, she had taken all my money and she had wrecked the divorce. Now as her widower, I inherit everything and we can marry whenever we like.

[Mrs Hughes descends the stairs.]

MRS HUGHES
Anna, they're going in.

[Anna gives Bates the letter and heads upstairs.]
MRS HUGHES
You look as if you got the cares of the world on your shoulders.

MR BATES
Not the whole world, Mrs Hughes, but quite enough of it.

[INT. LADY SYBIL'S BEDROOM CORRIDOR, NIGHT]
[Mary knocks on Sybil's door.]

LADY MARY
Sybil?

[Mary tries the door knob, but it's locked.]

LADY MARY
Sybil, I just want to say goodnight.

[Mary knocks again with no response, then hurries off with a furrowed brow.]

[INT. MRS HUGHES'S SITTING ROOM - NIGHT]

ANNA
Mrs Hughes, can I borrow the duplicate keys for upstairs?

MRS HUGHES
Why?

ANNA
Lady Mary says one of the bathroom keys isn't working. She thinks it must've got swapped.
[Mrs Hughes shakes her head with a sigh.]

MRS HUGHES
I'll come.

ANNA
Oh, no, there's no need. I'll bring it back in a jiffy. You've done enough for one day.
