唐顿庄园第二季第八集_1

[INT. GREAT HALL - DAY]

CORA
We can put the presents in the drawing room against the window.

MRS HUGHES
Very good, milady.
[Mrs Hughes leaves to take care of it.]

ISOBEL
I suppose we do have to display all the presents. It can look rather greedy.

LAVINIA
I can't bear the disruption we seem to have brought down on your heads.

CORA
Don't be silly.
[Matthew enters and Mary and Lavinia go to him.]

LADY MARY
How are you feeling?

MATTHEW
Just wish I could get rid of this damn stick. Sorry.

LADY MARY
Don't be. If anyone has a right to swear, it's you.

CORA
Don't bully yourself. Think of where we were a few months ago and smile.

LADY MARY
I quite agree.

MATTHEW
I want to make it up and down that isle without assistance.

LAVINIA
Up, yes. You'll have me to lean on when you're coming down.

LADY MARY
And you still have three full days of practice, so never say die.

ISOBEL
My goodness, is that the time? I must be getting back.

LAVINIA
I'll go with you.

MATTHEW
She's just sucking up, Mother.

LAVINIA
Any bride who doesn't suck up to her husband's mother is a fool.

[Isobel chuckles and they exit arm in arm. Matthew smiles after them.]

[INT. MR CARSON'S OFFICE - DAY]
[Mrs Hughes knocks and enters.]

MRS HUGHES
Can I bother you? Mrs Bryant has written a letter I did not expect.
[Mrs Hughes hands it to Mr Carson.]

MRS HUGHES
She says her husband wants to see the baby. They both do.

MR CARSON
Isn't that what you hoped?

MRS HUGHES
Yes and no. Remember what he was like the last time. I don't want to build up Ethel's hopes again.

MR CARSON
Ethel's not important. It's the boy's chances you have to look to.

MRS HUGHES
I believe you're right, though we come at it by different routes.

[INT. LADY MARY'S BEDROOM - EVENING]

LADY MARY
But why announce it tonight all of a sudden?

LADY SYBIL
He's got a job at a newspaper. He heard today it's a real chance.

LADY MARY
Let him go to Dublin and then you can use the calm to consider.

[Sybil scoffs.]
LADY EDITH
Mary doesn't want you to be trapped before you're completely sure.

LADY SYBIL
But I am sure! How many times do I have to say it? Anna, tell them.

ANNA
Lady Mary's right. It's a very big thing to give up your whole world.

LADY MARY
Thank you. Listen to her if you won't listen to me.

LADY SYBIL
But I'm not giving up my world! They want to give me up. That's their affair. I'm perfectly happy to carry on being friends with everyone.

LADY MARY
Married to the chauffeur?

LADY SYBIL
Yes. Anyway, he's a journalist now, which sounds better for Granny.

[Sybil sits down on the bed, frustrated.]
LADY SYBIL
We're going to tell Papa tonight.

[They all stare at her.]

LADY EDITH
"We"? You mean, you and Branson?

LADY SYBIL
He's coming in after dinner.

LADY EDITH
But what will Papa do?

LADY MARY
I imagine he'll call the police.

[INT. MR CARSON'S OFFICE - EVENING]

MR CARSON
Downton is not a hostel.

THOMAS
No, Mr Carson.

MR CARSON
And you made such a point of not being a servant anymore, our ears are ringing with it.

THOMAS
The trouble is, I'm a little out of pocket at the moment.

MR CARSON
I cannot say that I 'm sympathetic, when you dabble in the black market.

THOMAS
I just need some more time, Mr Carson.

MR CARSON
How long is it since the last patient left, Sergeant? You're trespassing on our generosity.

THOMAS
I'll try to make myself useful.

MR CARSON
Just find somewhere to go.
[Thomas leaves in shock.]

[INT. DRAWING ROOM - EVENING]
[Branson enters purposefully. Everyone stares.]

ROBERT
Yes?
[Edith tenses in anticipation. Branson looks at Sybil.]

BRANSON
I'm here.
[Sybil gets up and walks over to Branson.]

LADY SYBIL
I don't think this is such a good idea. We mustn't worry Granny.

BRANSON
You've asked me to come, and I've come.

VIOLET
Would someone please tell me what is going on, or have we all stepped through the looking glass?

BRANSON
Your grandmother has as much right to know as anybody else.

VIOLET
Why don't I find that reassuring?

[INT. KITCHENS - EVENING]

MRS PATMORE
Ooh, how much longer is Mr Carson going to be? This is why it's never worth trying to make food interesting in the servants' hall. You're very quiet this evening.

DAISY MASON
I've had a letter of Mr Mason, William's dad.

MRS PATMORE
Oh, yes? What does he want?

DAISY MASON
To see me.

MRS PATMORE
Oh, there's nothing very wonderful in that. You're his daughter-in-law, why shouldn't he see you?

DAISY MASON
I wish it were as simple.

MRS PATMORE
Well, I think it is, but I'll not reopen the wound.
