唐顿庄园第二季第八集_8

[INT. LAVINIA'S GUEST BEDROOM]
[Isobel sits by Lavinia's bedside, but stands as Matthew enters.]

MATTHEW
What a marathon, but I think I got them all. Everyone sends love. I've told your father I'll telegraph him as soon as it's safe for him to come.

LAVINIA
But not before.

ISOBEL
Well, I don't think I should leave you alone.
[Matthew sighs.]

ISOBEL
But if you don't tell.
[Matthew chuckles and Isobel leaves. He sits in the chair.]

MATTHEW
I've been thinking about the date for the rematch, and...what is it?

LAVINIA
I wonder if we haven't been rather lucky.

MATTHEW
Well, I think we've both been very lucky.

LAVINIA
That we've been given a second chance.

MATTHEW
Second chance at what?

LAVINIA
To be quite, quite sure about what we're doing.

MATTHEW
Darling, what can you mean?

LAVINIA
The thing is...I might as well say it. When I came downstairs and you and Mary were dancing, I heard what you said...and I saw what you did.

MATTHEW
But that was--

LAVINIA
No, it's not that I'm in a rage and a fury. In fact, I think it's noble of you to want to keep your word when things have changed. But I'm not sure it'd be right for me to hold you to it.

MATTHEW
Lavinia, I can explain.

LAVINIA
No, listen. I've had lots of time to think about it. I love you very, very much, and I've wanted to marry you from the first moment I saw you, all that is true. But I didn't really know what I was taking on. It's not in me to be Queen of the County. I'm a little person, an ordinary person, and when I saw you and Mary together, I thought ,"How fine. How right you look together."

MATTHEW
I-- I don't want to hear this.

LAVINIA
But you must. Because it isn't a sudden thing. I was starting to worry, and then when you were wounded, I thought it was my calling to look after you and care for you. And I don't think Mary would've done that quite as well as me, really.

MATTHEW (laughs)
No, no. No, not nearly as well.

LAVINIA
I do have some self-worth. Just not enough to make you marry the wrong person.

MATTHEW
What you're saying is pointless! Mary's marrying somebody else.

LAVINIA
Is she? We'll see.

MATTHEW
I won't let you do this.

LAVINIA
You will. But we won't fight about it now. In fact, I'm tired. Can I rest for a bit? We'll talk later.

MATTHEW
Of course.

[Matthew gets up and he sees her start to cry just before he leaves.]

[INT. DRAWING ROOM - DAY]

LADY MARY
It's good of you to come, but I don't really see what you can do.

SIR RICHARD CARLISLE
I just thought I better do my bit. You say the chauffeur's gone, so I could always drive the car.

LADY MARY
Preferably over the chauffeur. Hm.

SIR RICHARD CARLISLE
You father's not having an easy time of it. How's Lady Grantham?

LADY MARY
Not well. Clarkson's with her now.

SIR RICHARD CARLISLE
And Miss Swire?

LADY MARY
Oh, she's...
[Something occurs to her and she turns to face Carlisle.]

LADY MARY
Is that why you've come? Because I said Lavinia had been taken ill?

SIR RICHARD CARLISLE
I was coming up anyway in a day or two for the wedding.

LADY MARY
Well, she won't be getting married on Saturday, which I suppose is what you'd like best.

SIR RICHARD CARLISLE
But she's not seriously ill?

LADY MARY
I see what was worrying you. If Lavinia had been carried off, you wanted to be here to stop Matthew from falling into my arms on a tidal wave of grief.

SIR RICHARD CARLISLE
It's a tricky disease.
[Thomas enters.]

THOMAS
His Lordship's asking for you, milady.
[Mary gathers her letters and exits]

[INT. KITCHENS - DAY]

MRS HUGHES
I think we should aim at a sort of buffet dinner. Then they can run in and out as it suits them. I'm sorry to make extra work.

MRS PATMORE
Never mind that. At times like these, we must all pull together.

MRS HUGHES
Oh, this arrived in the afternoon post, Daisy.
[Mrs Hughes hands Daisy a letter. Thomas enters.]

THOMAS
Tea for Sir Richard in the drawing room.

MRS HUGHES
Well, I'm glad to know he's here to help.

[Mrs Hughes and Mrs Patmore shake their heads while Daisy reads her letter.]

THOMAS
I can do it.

MRS HUGHES
You're very obliging, Thomas.

THOMAS
I could take some up to Mr Carson, if you'd like.

[Mrs Hughes and Mrs Patmore exchange a look.]
MRS PATMORE
Is that from your Mr Mason?

DAISY MASON
He's not mine.

MRS HUGHES
What does he say?

DAISY MASON
He just says again we should talk about William. He wants me to go to his farm.

MRS PATMORE
Oh, poor man, will you not visit him?

DAISY MASON
I'm not going to any farm.

MRS HUGHES
You're all he's got, Daisy.

DAISY MASON
Well, then he's got nobody, 'cause he hasn't got me.
