唐顿庄园第二季第八集_5

[INT. SERVANTS' HALL - EVENING]

O'BRIEN
I'll sleep on a chair in her room.

DR CLARKSON
Oh, no. There's no need for that.

O'BRIEN
I don't mind.

[Molesley pulls his head off the table groggily.]

MR MOLESLEY
What is it?

O'BRIEN
I'd like to be on hand.

MRS HUGHES
So, we're quite the hospital again.

DR CLARKSON
You'll probably gain some more patients over the next few day--

[Clarkson leans in as he's checking Molesley and sniffs his hair. He smiles as Molesley continues to snore at the table.]

DR CLARKSON
But you don't need to worry about Molesley. He'll be fine in the morning.

MRS HUGHES
Oh?

DR CLARKSON
Uh-huh. The others have Spanish flu. He's just drunk.

[INT. UPSTAIRS CORRIDOR - NIGHT]
[Robert steps out of his dressing room when he hears footsteps. He stops, disappointed, and turns back to his room, but Jane appears.]

JANE
Oh, did you want Mr Bates, milord?

ROBERT
I forgot to say I want to be woken early.

JANE
Well, I can tell him that.
[Robert nods and starts to go back to his room.]

JANE
Freddy got in to Ripon Grammar. So, whatever you said, it worked.

ROBERT
Marvellous. Some good news at last.

JANE
I hate to hear you talk like that.

ROBERT
I'm sorry, that was selfish of me to spoil your happy moment.

JANE
You need never say "sorry" to me. How are you, really?

ROBERT
Since you ask, I'm wretched. I lost my youngest child today, I suspect forever, and I can't see any way around it.

JANE
I wish you knew how much I want to help.

ROBERT
Do you?

JANE
I think you know I do.

[Robert holds out his hand and Jane takes it. He leads her into his dressing room.]

[INT. MR CARSON'S BEDROOM - NIGHT]

MR CARSON
I'll see if I can get up tomorrow.

MRS HUGHES
Don't be foolish. You're ill. And in all probability, you're going to be a lot iller in the morning.

MR CARSON
But how will you manage? And what about the wedding?

MRS HUGHES
I'm not sure there'll even be a wedding. But either way, I won't burden you with it.

MR CARSON
P-- perhaps Mr Molesley could come on a permanent basis until I'm better.

MRS HUGHES
I doubt that's a solution, Mr Carson. Neither my patience nor his liver could stand it.
[Mrs Hughes gestures for him to drink up his medicine.]

[INT. LORD GRANTHAM'S DRESSING ROOM - NIGHT]
[Robert snogs the maid. Bates knocks at the door and opens it, but Robert is already at the door and prevents him from opening it any further while Jane hides in the corner.]

ROBERT
Who is it?

MR BATES
I'm sorry, my lord, we never settled a time you wanted to be woken.

ROBERT
Early, I think, with everyone ill. Seven. I'll breakfast at half past.

MR BATES
Very good, milord. Goodnight.

[Bates leaves and Robert closes the door and closes his eyes.]

ROBERT
This isn't fair. I'm placing you in an impossible situation.

JANE
I want to be with you. Let me.
[Jane tries to kiss him, but he takes her hands and pulls back.]

JANE
I see. You don't want me now.

ROBERT
I want you with every fibre of my being, but it isn't fair to you; it isn't fair to anyone. I wish I were different. I wish everything were different.

JANE
I don't want you different. I like you the way you are.

ROBERT (sigh)
Thank you for that. I will cherish it. Truly.

[She tries to kiss him again, but he won't let her. He opens the door and checks the hall, then returns to the room and Jane leaves.]

[INT. LADY GRANTHAM'S BEDROOM - MORNING]
[Mrs Hughes enters as Edith and O'Brien nurse Cora.]

MRS HUGHES
What can I bring to help?

O'BRIEN
Ice to bring her temperature down.

LADY MARY
Mrs Hughes, Sir Richard telephoned this morning. He's coming down to help. I wonder if you could have some rooms made ready for him and his valet, and tell Mrs Patmore.

MRS HUGHES
Very good, milady.
