唐顿庄园第二季第八集_10

[INT. LADY GRANTHAM'S BEDROOM - DAY]

ROBERT
A sight to gladden my heart.

CORA
Is it? I hope it is.

ROBERT
You gave us quite a fright.

CORA
They told me about Lavinia.

ROBERT
The funeral is on Monday.

CORA
I'd like to go if I can.
[Cora lays her hand on the bed for Robert to take. He takes it.]

CORA
We're all right, aren't we Robert?

[Robert looks at her face, narrows his eyes, and the replies.]

ROBERT
Of course we are.

CORA
Only I know I got so caught up in everything, I think I neglected you, and if I did, I'm sorry.

ROBERT
Don't apologize to me.

[INT. MRS HUGHES'S SITTING ROOM - EVENING]
[Ethel knocks and enters while Mrs Hughes is having her tea.]

MRS HUGHES
Ethel! Whatever are you doing here at this time of night?

ETHEL
I said I'd be back with my answer, and here I am.

MRS HUGHES
You know we're a house in mourning.

ETHEL
Yes. And I'm sorry. But if anything, it's made my mind up for me. Life is short and what's my life without Charlie? They're not having him.

MRS HUGHES (nods)
As long as you're sure.

ETHEL
They say they can do better for him, but what's better than his mother's love? Fancy me that.
[Mrs Hughes smiles a little.]

MRS HUGHES
I'll write and tell them.
[Ethel smiles a little as she steps toward the door.]

ETHEL
You agree with me, though, don't you?

MRS HUGHES
My opinion has no place in this.
[Ethel nods and leaves.]

[ EXT/INT. RIPON REGISTER OFFICE - DAY]
[Anna arrives with flowers and takes Mr Bates's arm. On their way inside, they pass a newlywed couple.]

REGISTRAR
"I, John Bates,"

MR BATES
I, John Bates...

REGISTRAR
"Take thee, Anna Mae Smith,"

MR BATES
Take thee, Anna Mae Smith...

REGISTRAR
"To be my wedded wife."

MR BATES
To be my wedded wife.

REGISTRAR
"I, Anna Mae Smith,"

ANNA
I, Anna Mae Smith...

REGISTRAR
"Take thee, John Bates..."

ANNA
Take thee, John Bates...

REGISTRAR
"To be my wedded husband."

ANNA
To be my wedded husband.

REGISTRAR
And now the ring.
[Bates puts the ring on the tip of Anna's finger.]

REGISTRAR
"With this ring, I plight thee my troth"

MR BATES
With this ring, I plight thee my troth...

REGISTRAR
"As a symbol of all we have promised."

MR BATES
As a symbol of all we have promised.

REGISTRAR
And all that we share.

MR BATES
And all that we share.
[Bates slides the ring the rest of the way onto Anna's finger. They beam at each other.]

REGISTRAR
It, therefore, gives me great pleasure to say you are now husband and wife together.

[They kiss.]

[INT. LIBRARY - DAY]
[Robert writes at his desk. Jane enters.]

JANE
You rang, milord?

ROBERT
I keep forgetting Carson's ill.

JANE
Mrs Hughes says he's much better.

ROBERT
I really want Bates, he'd gone out earlier.

JANE
He's in the dressing room. He went up with your evening shirt.
[Robert checks his watch.]

ROBERT
Golly, is that the time?
[Robert gets up and Jane turns to leave.]

ROBERT
Actually, can you stay a moment? I was trying to think how to contrive a meeting and here you are. You see--

JANE
I'm glad Lady Grantham's better. Truly. and don't worry, there's no harm done.

ROBERT
No harm done yet.

JANE
I'm almost packed...and I've given in my notice.
[Robert stares for a moment, then nods. He takes a note from his desk and hands it to her.]

ROBERT
This is the name and address of my man of business.

JANE
Why? You don't owe me anything.

ROBERT
It's not for you. It's for Freddy. Let me give him a start in life.

[Jane shakes her head and tries to look anywhere but Robert.]
JANE
I'm not sure.

ROBERT
It would make me very happy.

JANE
If I thought that, then I'd take it gladly. Will you be happy? Really?

ROBERT
I have no right to be unhappy, which is almost the same.

JANE
Almost. Not quite. Can I kiss you before I go?

[Robert leans in and kisses her. She starts to cry as they part. She exits and he stares after her.]

[INT. LADY MARY'S BEDROOM - NIGHT]
[Mary shakes her head.]

LADY MARY
The secret Mrs Bates.
[Anna and Mary smile.]

ANNA BATES
We will tell everyone, but I thought we should leave it for a while. At least 'til after the funeral, anyway.

LADY MARY
You'll have to control yourselves.

ANNA BATES
Well, we've had enough practice.
[Anna finishes braiding Mary's hair and Mary walks toward the door.]

LADY MARY
Come with me.

[Anna follows Mary down the corridor. Mary looks back at her and smiles.]

[INT. GUEST BEDROOM - NIGHT]
[Mary shows Anna a guest bedroom with flowers on the bed and candles everywhere. Anna smiles.]

LADY MARY
Smuggle Bates in here when everyone has gone to bed. And for heaven's sake, make sure he gets the right room.
[Anna chuckles.]

ANNA BATES
I don't know what to say, milady. Who did all this?

LADY MARY
Jane. I told her. She said it would be her leaving present. You can stay all night. She won't tell.

ANNA BATES
Milady, thank you. Very, very much. [Mary smiles.]

[INT. MR CARSON'S OFFICE - NIGHT]
[Mr Carson clears his throat as Thomas is closing up the silver cabinet.]

THOMAS
Are you sure you should be up, Mr Carson?

MR CARSON
I wanted to check the silver before tomorrow.

THOMAS
I think I've cleaned all the pieces we might need. We'll get everything ready the moment breakfast is over.

MR CARSON
Thank you for the way you've kept it all going, Thomas. I wish I knew how to express my gratitude.

THOMAS
You'll find a way, Mr Carson.

[Carson holds out his hand and Thomas gives him the silver cabinet keys.]
