唐顿庄园第二季第七集_12

[INT. DINING ROOM - MORNING]

CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Where are the girls?

ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
I suppose Sybil's still ill and the others just haven't appeared.

CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
I hope they're not coming down with anything. The stories of this Spanish flu are too awful.

ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
No, it's nothing of the sort. Why are you up so early?

CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
I'm meeting Isobel. She wants me to help with her refugees.

ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
I thought the whole point of Mama arranging that was to keep her out of your hair.

CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
I know. But now the soldiers are, I do have a lot of time on my hands, and maybe I can be useful.

ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Why is it different from before the war?

CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Well, I don't know exactly, it just is. Maybe the war's changed me. I guess it's changed everybody.

ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Not me.

CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Don't be too sure.

[Cora gives him a kiss on the cheek before she heads out.]
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
If I'm not back before luncheon, don't wait.

[Mr Carson removes a breakfast dish.]
MR CARSON
I'll take this down to keep it hot, my lord.

[Robert sits at the table by himself, depressed. Jane inches into the room.]

JANE
I wanted to catch you alone.
[Robert is startled by her presence.]

ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
Oh?
[Jane checks behind her and then approaches him at the table.]

JANE
Yes. You see, I think you might be happier if I tendered my resignation.

[Robert stands up.]

ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
What?

JANE
I'd hate you to be uncomfortable in your own house, and--

ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
I won't hear of it.

JANE
But I know--

ROBERT, EARL OF GRANTHAM
You won't be deprived of your livelihood because I behaved in an un-gentlemanly manner. The fault was entirely mine. You will not pay the price.

[They hear a noise from the servants' entrance and Jane runs out just as Carson appears around the screen. Robert picks up a letter and pretends to read it as he sits back down.]

[INT. THOMAS'S SHED - DAY]
[Thomas enters, takes off his hat, pulls out a knife and slashes open a few of the food packages. He proceeds to trash the shed, yelling. Eventually he slumps into a pile.]

[INT. CRAWLEY HOUSE - DAY]
[Isobel walks in with Mary‘s good luck charm.]

ISOBEL CRAWLEY
Is this yours? Molesley found it in your dressing room. It‘s not one of your old toys, is it? Because I don‘t recognise it.

MATTHEW
No, it was given to me as a charm, I think, to take to the front.

ISOBEL CRAWLEY
Well, you‘re home and safe now. Shall I put it in the barrel for the village children?

MATTHEW
No.

[Matthew grabs the toy dog from her and Isobel and Lavinia stare at him.]

MATTHEW
You never know. It might be bad luck not to keep it.

[Isobel smiles and Lavinia smiles back at her.]
ISOBEL CRAWLEY
Luncheon‘ll be ready soon.

[Isobel exits and Matthew puts the dog in his pocket.]

[INT. THOMAS'S SHED - DAY]

THOMAS
It's all rubbish. It's all bloody rubbish.

O'BRIEN
Can't you ask for your money back?

THOMAS
Oh, yes. Of course I can ask, and a fat lot of good that'll do.

O'BRIEN
You must challenge him.

THOMAS
How? I only ever met him in a pub. I wouldn't know where to find him!

O'BRIEN
But, surely--

THOMAS
woman! I've been tricked! Been had! Been taken for the fool I am.

[Thomas sits down for a smoke.]

O'BRIEN
How much did he get from you?

THOMAS
Every penny I had. And then some.

O'BRIEN
What are you going to do now?

THOMAS
I don't know. I don't bloody know.
