唐顿庄园第二季第八集_9

[INT. LADY MARY'S BEDROOM - DAY]
[Mary enters as Anna is finishing the bed.]

ANNA
Oh, I'm sorry, milady, I didn't think you'd want to change tonight.

LADY MARY
I don't. I just need a handkerchief.

ANNA
How's Her Ladyship?

LADY MARY
Not good, I'm afraid. What is it?

ANNA
I--I don't mean to bother you, milady.

LADY MARY
Go on.

ANNA
Can you keep a secret? Well, I know you can. You see, Mr Bates and I had a plan...to get married this coming Friday.

LADY MARY
What?

ANNA
He's worried the police haven't finished with him, and if he's right, then I'm not going through it with no proper place in his life.

LADY MARY
Well, that's a very brave decision.

ANNA
Or a very stupid one. But, anyway, with Her Ladyship ill now, and half the servants on their backs, and everybody working flat out--

LADY MARY
Where is the marriage to be?

ANNA
Just in the register office in Ripon. It wouldn't take long, but--

LADY MARY
Go. I'll cover for you. We're all here, and you won't help Mama by changing your plans.
[Edith enters.]

LADY EDITH
You better come. She's worse.
[Mary rushes out with Edith.]

[INT. LADY GRANTHAM'S BEDROOM - EVENING]

[Clarkson puts on his coat to leave.]

DR CLARKSON
I've given her the epinephrine.

O'BRIEN (worried) Doctor!
[Cora is gasping for air and her nose is bleeding.]

LADY EDITH
Oh, no. What does that mean?

DR CLARKSON
It's a haemorrhage of the mucus membranes. It's, er, it's not unusual. [Sybil gets a bowl to Cora just in time as she vomits.]

O'BRIEN
It's all right, milady. Don't worry. Don't worry a bit. Everything's going to be all right.

ROBERT (whisper)
Everything is clearly not all right. How bad is it?

DR CLARKSON (low voice)
If she lasts through the night, she'll live.
[Mary, Edith, and Robert absorb this shock.]

DR CLARKSON
What about the others?

LADY MARY
Come with me.

DR CLARKSON
I'll be back shortly.

[INT. MR CARSON'S BEDROOM - EVENING]

DR CLARKSON
I've given some medicine to Mrs Hughes. She'll bring it up later.

MR CARSON
I gather Her Ladyship is not improving.

DR CLARKSON
Ah, well, er...we'll know more tomorrow.

MR CARSON
And Miss Swire?

DR CLARKSON
Not too bad, I think. I'll go to her when I've seen the rest of the servants.
[Someone knocks just as Clarkson heads for the door and he opens it.]

DR CLARKSON
Ah.
[Clarkson exits as Thomas brings in a tray, to Mr Carson's shock.]

THOMAS
Thank you, sir. Here we are, Mr Carson. Now, have you got everything you need?
[Carson nods.]

THOMAS
Milady.
[Thomas exits cheerfully.]

MR CARSON
I wan-- I want to thank you for coming up, my lady.

LADY MARY
Not at all.

MR CARSON
No, no, I mean it. I know I've been a disappointment to you.

LADY MARY
Maybe. But I've relied on your support for too long to do without it entirely.

MR CARSON
You'll always have my support, my lady.

LADY MARY
And you mine. On which subject...
[Mary brings Carson's dinner tray to him.]

LADY MARY
I should be careful of Thomas.

MR CARSON
I don't know how we're to get rid of him after all this.

LADY MARY
But I doubt he'll want to stay a footman forever, so watch out.

[INT. DINING ROOM - EVENING]
[Thomas waits on the buffet dinner party in full livery.]

LADY MARY
You look very smart, Thomas.

THOMAS
Well, I still have the shirt, milady, and I found my livery in the cupboard, so I thought, why not?
[Mary finishes serving up her own plate and walks over to sit next to Matthew.]

SIR RICHARD CARLISLE
I have a place for you here.
[Mary pauses awkwardly and goes to sit next to Carlisle.]

ISOBEL
How's Lavinia?

MATTHEW
All right, I think. The illness has made her rather...confused.

LADY MARY
What do you mean?
[Sybil rushes in, wearing her nursing uniform.]

LADY SYBIL
Matthew! Mary!

[Everyone gets up.]

LADY MARY
Is it Mama?

LADY SYBIL
That's what's so...it's Lavinia.
[Everyone rushes out except Carlisle. He grabs Mary's arm on her way out.]

SIR RICHARD CARLISLE
Let him go to her. Let him be with her. Surely you owe her that.
[Mary slips out of his grasp and leaves without a word.]

[INT. LAVINIA'S GUEST BEDROOM - EVENING]

ISOBEL
What happened?

DR CLARKSON
This is how I found her. It's bad, I'm afraid. Very bad.

[Lavinia seems to be struggling to breathe.]

DR CLARKSON
The worst.

MATTHEW
I don't understand. When I was with her, she was talking, she was fine.

DR CLARKSON
It's-- it's a strange disease with sudden, savage changes. I'm terribly sorry.

MATTHEW
Well, what can I do? Can I talk to her?

DR CLARKSON
Yes, of course.

[Matthew sits in the chair next to the bed and takes Lavinia's hand. The men step away and turn their backs, but the women watch.]

MATTHEW
My darling, can you hear me? It's me. It's Matthew.

LAVINIA
Matthew. I'm so glad you're here.

MATTHEW
Of course I'm here. Darling, where else would I be?

LAVINIA
Isn't this better, really?

MATTHEW
I don't understand you.

LAVINIA
You won't have to make a hard decision. Be happy, for my sake. Promise me. It's all I want for you. Remember that. That's all I want.

MATTHEW
But I can't be happy. Not without you. How could I be happy?

[Lavinia dies. Isobel steps forward and the gentlemen turn back around. Clarkson checks her pulse, then places a hand on Matthew's shoulder and steps away.]

[INT. GREAT HALL - DAY]
[Matthew walks to Downton wearing a black armband, looking like a zombie. He enter the great hall and sees servants taking the garlands down from the staircase.]

MATTHEW
What are you doing?

THOMAS
They were put up for the wedding, Mr Crawley.

[Robert approaches Matthew.]
ROBERT
My dear chap, I cannot find the words to say how sorry I am.

MATTHEW
How is Cousin Cora?

ROBERT
Much better, thank you.

MATTHEW
Glad to hear it. I came up to see if there's anything I need to do.

ROBERT
We've taken care of all that. As you know, we always use Graspy's.

MATTHEW
Of course.

ROBERT
Travis has suggested Monday for the funeral to give people time to get here. It'll be in tomorrow's paper.

MATTHEW
That's very kind of you.

ROBERT
I know Mary wanted to--

MATTHEW
No.

ROBERT
--see you.

MATTHEW
I mean, I...don't really want to see anyone. Not yet. Now I know everything's settled, I'll go back.

ROBERT
When you speak to her father, do ask him to stay here

MATTHEW
Thank you. He'll be...very grateful.

ROBERT
Just tell me what you want me to do, and I'll do it. [Matthew zombie walks away.]

[INT. MR CARSON'S BEDROOM - DAY]
[Mrs Hughes gives Mr Carson his medicine.]

MRS HUGHES
Are you feeling more yourself?

MR CARSON
A bit. I still can't get over it.

MRS HUGHES
I hope you'll not pretend you liked her now.

MR CARSON
I didn't want her here, Mrs Hughes, I'll admit, but I had no objection to her being happy somewhere else.
