唐顿庄园第二季第八集_4

[INT. SERVANTS' CORRIDOR - EVENING]
[Bates turns the corner as Anna walks down the corridor.]

ANNA
Oh. I'm glad I've got you.

MR BATES
Aren't you serving?

ANNA
They're on the main course, so I can spare a moment. I've been thinking and, erm, I have to say something that you won't agree with. We're going to get married.

MR BATES
Don't be silly. We can't. Not now.

ANNA
You're not listening. You're going to Ripon tomorrow afternoon to take out a special license - I don't care how much it costs - and fix a day. We'll tell no one, but this you will do.

MR BATES
I can't.

ANNA
Aren't I as strong as Lady Sybil?

MR BATES
I don't doubt that.

ANNA
Well, then. If she can do it, so can we. That's what I've been thinking. I have stuck by you through thick and thin.

MR BATES
Thin and thin, more like.

ANNA
Mr Bates, if we have to face this, then we will face it as husband and wife. I will not be moved to the sidelines to watch how you fair from a distance with no right even to be kept informed. I will be your next of kin, and you cannot deny me that.

JANE
Anna! You better come, quick. [Anna goes with Jane.]

[INT. SERVE ROOM - EVENING]
[Molesley moans and puts a handkerchief to his face.]

ANNA
Mr Molesley? What's happened? Haven't you taken that in yet?

MR MOLESLEY
I'm not well. I'm not well at all.

JANE
First Mr Carson, then Her Ladyship, and now him.

ANNA
Help him down to the servants' hall. The doctor can take a look at him, too, when he gets here.

[Anna grabs the decanter and enters the dining room.]

[ INT. DINING ROOM - EVENING]

ROBERT
The Spanish flu has found its way to Yorkshire.

ISOBEL
And to Downton. Dr Clarkson says he's got ten cases already.
[Anna pours Violet's drink.]

ROBERT
Ah, I thought Molesley had joined the temperance league.

ANNA
I'm afraid he's been taken ill, milord. I am sorry.

ROBERT
Molesley, too? Good heavens, everyone's falling like ninepins. [Lavinia swoons in her chair.]

LADY MARY
Lavinia?

LAVINIA
Do you know, I'm not at all well either. I wonder if I could lay down for a minute?

LADY MARY
Of course. Come to my room. They'll have lit the fire by now.

[Mary and Lavinia get up from the table. The men stand as they exit.]

LAVINIA
Excuse me.

ISOBEL
Do you think we should take her home?

MATTHEW
No, let her rest for a moment.

ISOBEL
Well, I—-I think I should go and help.

[Isobel gets up and exits.]

VIOLET
Wasn't there a masked ball in Paris when cholera broke out? Half the guests were dead before they left the ballroom.

ROBERT
Thank you, Mama. That's cheered us up no end. [BREAK 2]

[INT. UPSTAIRS CORRIDOR - EVENING] MRS HUGHES

I'll take you to Mr Carson now, and then to see Mr Molesley in the servants' hall.

[Robert turns the corner.]
ROBERT
Dr Clarkson, you're kind to come. How is she?

DR CLARKSON
Not too bad, I see. But she'll need some nursing for a day or two.

ROBERT
Oh, don't worry about that. All our daughters are professionals. Let's leave her to get some rest.
[Mary and Isobel approach.]

LADY MARY
Miss Swire may be another victim, but she's sleeping now, so I don't want to disturb her.

DR CLARKSON
When she wakes, give her some aspirin and cinnamon in milk and keep her here. I'll look at her in the morning. I better go to Carson.

ISOBEL
I'll come, too.

[Clarkson takes a breath and rolls his eyes, but follows Mrs Hughes without a word.]

[INT. GREAT HALL - EVENING]
[Matthew puts on the gramophone. Mary watches him from the balcony for a moment before descending the stairs.]

LADY MARY
Where is everyone?

MATTHEW
I'm not sure. Cousin Violet's gone home.

LADY MARY
What about you?

MATTHEW
I'm waiting for Lavinia and Mother.

LADY MARY
Dr Clarkson wants Lavinia to stay here. He'll see her tomorrow. [Mary listens to the music.]

LADY MARY
I don't know this one.

MATTHEW
Actually, I rather like it. I think it was in a show that flopped. Zip Goes a Million, or something.

[Mary lets out an amused sigh. Matthew holds out his hands to dance with her. She steps into his arms.]

LADY MARY
Can you manage without your stick?

MATTHEW
You are my stick.

LADY MARY
Hm. We were a show that flopped.

MATTHEW
Oh, God, Mary.
[The music fades and transitions into the modern Downton Abbey orchestral score.]

MATTHEW
I am so, so sorry. Do you know how sorry I am?

LADY MARY
Don't be. It wasn't anyone's fault. If it was, it was mine.

MATTHEW
You know, Cousin Violet came to me and told me to marry you.

LADY MARY
When was this?

MATTHEW
A while ago. When we knew I would walk again.

LADY MARY
Classic Granny. What did you say?

MATTHEW
That I couldn't accept Lavinia's sacrifice of her life, her children, her future, and then give her the brush off when I was well again. Well, I couldn't, could I?

LADY MARY
Of course not.

MATTHEW
However much I might want to.

LADY MARY
Absolutely not.

[Mary and Matthew kiss.]

LAVINIA
Hello.
[Lavinia comes down the stairs and Mary and Matthew part.]

MATTHEW
What are you doing up?

LAVINIA
Shouldn't we be getting back?

LADY MARY
It's decided. You're staying here. Dr Clarkson's coming in the morning so he can treat all of you together. You can borrow some things until Matthew brings you what you need. I'll go and organize a room.

[Mary leaves and Matthew walks up to Lavinia.]

MATTHEW
How do you feel?

LAVINIA
Like a nuisance.

MATTHEW
You could never be that.

LAVINIA
I mean it, Matthew. Don't ever let me be a nuisance. Don't ever let me get in the way, please.

[The gramophone scratches at the end of the song.]
