唐顿庄园第二季第八集_3

[INT. LADY SYBIL'S BEDROOM - DAY]

LADY SYBIL
Your threats are hollow, don't you see? "I won't be received in London. I won't be welcome at court." How do I make you understand? I couldn't care less.
[Robert is about to reply when Violet knocks and enters.]

VIOLET
I do hope I'm interrupting something.

ROBERT
I only wish you were, but I seem to be getting nowhere. Have you seen Cora?

VIOLET
Ah-ha. She's lying down, and can we blame her? Now, Sybil, dear, this sort of thing is all very well in novels, but in reality, it can prove very uncomfortable. And while I am sure Branson has many virtues…
[Robert is about to protest.]

VIOLET
Well, no, no. He's a good driver.

LADY SYBIL
I will not give him up!

ROBERT
Don't be rude to your grandmother.

VIOLET
No, she's not being rude, just wrong.

LADY SYBIL
This is my offer: I will stay one week to avoid the impression I've run away, and because I don't want to spoil Matthew's wedding. And then we will marry in Dublin and whoever wishes to visit will be very welcome.

ROBERT
Out of the question.

LADY SYBIL
Will you forbid Mary and Edith?

VIOLET
No, don't, don't. Don't say anything you may have to retract.

ROBERT
Know this: there will be no more money. From here on in, your life will be very different.

LADY SYBIL
Well, bully for that.

[INT. MR CARSON'S OFFICE - DAY]
[Mrs Hughes knocks on the door and enters with a tray.]

MRS HUGHES
I thought this might [?] you off--
[Mr Carson tries to rise as she enters, but he's obviously not well.]

MRS HUGHES
Mr Carson, whatever's the matter?

MR CARSON
Oh, I 'm sure I'll be all right if I can just stay still for a moment.
[Mr Carson sinks back into his chair and Mrs Hughes puts down the tray.]

MRS HUGHES
You will not stay still, not down here. Get to bed this minute. I'll send for the doctor.

MR CARSON
I can't. We've got the Crawleys tonight and Miss Swire. What with this business of Lady Sybil.

MRS HUGHES
I'll deal with it.
[She helps him up.]

MR CARSON
Get Mr Molesley to help.

MRS HUGHES
There's no need.

MR CARSON
I mean it. The war is no longer an excuse for sloppy presentation.

MRS HUGHES
Oh, very well, I'll ask him, but only on condition you go to bed.

[Mrs Hughes helps Carson to his room.]

[INT. LADY GRANTHAM'S BEDROOM - EVENING]
[Cora heaves an exhausted sigh.]

O'BRIEN
Are you too hot in that, my lady? We still have time to change.

CORA
No, I'm fine. Thank you.
[O'Brien leaves and Cora sinks into a chair.]

CORA
So, what do we do next?

ROBERT
God knows. This is what comes of spoiling her. The mad clothes, the nursing. What were we thinking of?

CORA
That's not fair. She's a wonderful nurse and she's worked very hard.

ROBERT
But in the process, she's forgotten who she is.

CORA
Has she, Robert? Or have we overlooked who she really is?

ROBERT
If you're turning American on me, I'll go downstairs.

[Cora sighs and Robert leaves.]

[INT. SERVE ROOM - EVENING]

ANNA
Mr Carson likes to serve two white wines, which you should open and decant just before they eat. A light one for the hors d'oeuvres, then a heavy one with the soup. Keep that going for the fish, and then change to the Claret, which you should really decant now. There's a pudding wine, and after that whatever they want in the drawing room with their coffee.

MR MOLESLEY
Blimey, it's a wonder they make it up the stairs.

ANNA
They don't drink much of any of it. Now, let me show you the decanters. These four...

[INT. STAIRCASE - EVENING]

CORA
So I don't have to receive that terrible man again.

MRS HUGHES
It won't be necessary. They'll meet Ethel here, but the--
[Cora stops to lean on the banister.]

MRS HUGHES
Should you be downstairs, milady?

CORA
Oh, I'm perfectly all right, thank you.
[Cora continues down the stairs.]

[INT. KITCHENS - EVENING]

THOMAS
Why Molesley? I could've done it.

MRS PATMORE
But you always make a mountain out of not being a servant.

THOMAS
I'm just trying to be helpful.

MRS PATMORE
I'm afraid "being helpful" is not something we associate you with.

[Thomas walks off.]
MRS PATMORE
Ooh, it's wonderful what fear can do to the human spirit.

[INT. SERVE ROOM - EVENING]

ANNA
You quite right, Mr Molesley?

MR MOLESLEY
Yes, I just want to be absolutely sure that this is the lighter wine.
[Molesley pours himself a glass.]

JANE
What does it matter as long as it's white.

MR MOLESLEY
No. I believe in starting the way you mean to go on. Don't want to get off on the wrong foot.

[INT. DINING ROOM - EVENING]

VIOLET
I'm glad you're here, Sybil, dear. I was afraid you'd have a tray in your room.

ROBERT
Maybe you should have done.

LADY SYBIL
Why? I'm nor eloping like a thief in the night. I might have once, but Mary and Edith talked me out of it.

[Mary and Edith stare at her for outing them.]

VIOLET
Oh? The plot thickens.

ISOBEL
After all, Sybil's had enough time to think about it--

MATTHEW
Mother, it is not for us to have an opinion.

[Molesley falters in pouring Matthew's wine.]
MATTHEW
Mr Molesley, are you quite well?

MR MOLESLEY
I--I'm all right, thank you, sir.

MATTHEW
I don't believe you are.

CORA
The awful truth is, I'm not quite all right and I'm afraid I'm going to ask you to excuse me.

ROBERT
I'm so sorry.
[The men stand as Cora gets up from the table.]

ROBERT
Would you like us to call Dr Clarkson?

CORA
No, no, darling, it's too late.

ANNA
He's coming anyway, Your Lordship, for Mr Carson.

LADY EDITH
I-- I'll bring him up when he arrives.

ROBERT
I can sleep in my dressing room.
