唐顿庄园第二季第八集_11

[INT. MRS HUGHES'S SITTING ROOM - NIGHT]
[Mrs Hughes gets up from her desk and hands Jane an envelope.]

MRS HUGHES
I think that's everything we owe.

JANE
Thank you, Mrs Hughes.

MRS HUGHES
I'm sorry you're going, Jane. You're a good worker. I wish you well.

JANE
I'm sorry, too, Mrs Hughes. But in the end I think it's for the best. For everyone.

MRS HUGHES
When all is said and done, my dear, you may be right.

[Jane leaves and Mrs Hughes considers the matter for a moment. She totally knows.]

[INT. HONEYMOON GUEST BEDROOM - NIGHT]
[Mr and Mrs Bates lie naked under the covers, gazing at each other.]

MR BATES
Well...Mrs Bates...you've had your way with me.

[They giggle.]
MR BATES
I just hope you don't live to regret it.

ANNA BATES
I couldn't regret it. No matter what comes. I know only that I am now who I was meant to be.

MR BATES
I'm not worthy of you, that's all I know. And they'll call me names for pulling you into my troubles.

[Anna sighs.]

ANNA BATES
Mr Bates, we've waited long enough to be together, you and I, and now that we're man and wife, can we let that be enough just for this one night?

[They kiss.]

[EXT. CEMETERY - DAY]

REVEREND TRAVIS
Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust.

[The minister throws dirt on Lavinia's coffin.]
REVEREND TRAVIS
In sure and certain hope of the resurrection to eternal life through our Lord Jesus Christ, who shall change our vile body that may be like unto his glorious body according to the mighty working whereby he is able to subdue all things to himself. Amen.

ALL
Amen.

LADY MARY
Would you give him a moment?

SIR RICHARD CARLISLE
Of course not, I understand.

[The mourners leave except Matthew. Mary approaches him by Lavinia's grave. Anna Bates, Mrs Hughes, Mr Carson, and Mr Bates walk back to the house.]

MRS HUGHES
We better get moving if we're to be back there before they arrive.

ANNA
Mrs Patmore and Thomas will go ahead in the trap. They'll sort it out between them.

MRS HUGHES
Mm, I've no doubt Thomas will have everything sorted out.
[Mrs Hughes gives Carson a significant look.]

MR CARSON
I'm sorry Mrs Hughes, but it's no good thinking that we'll get shot of him now. Why doesn't that come as a surprise?

[Daisy sees Matthew standing at William's grave as she walks back. He sees her and she goes to him.]

MR MASON
I've been hoping I might meet you here one day. I expect you come as often as I try to do.

DAISY MASON
It was a funeral...of a lady that was going to marry Mr Crawley.

MR MASON
I heard about that. There's nothing so wrong as when young folks die.
[Daisy wipes her eyes.]

MR MASON
Hey, needn't hide your tears from me, love.
[He hands her a handkerchief.]

MR MASON
It does me good to see how much you loved him. It does.
[Back at Lavinia's grave.]

LADY MARY
You must tell me if there's anything I can do. Anything at all.

MATTHEW
Thank you, but I don't think so.
[Mary nods and turns to go.]

MATTHEW
That night when we were dancing and Lavinia came downstairs...she heard. She...she saw...everything.

LADY MARY
How terrible for her. I'm so sorry.

MATTHEW
Because of what she saw, she thought we should cancel the wedding. That I belonged with you, not with her. She gave up because of us. She said to me when she was dying, "Isn't this better?" I know it's a cliché, but...I believe she died of a broken heart, because of that kiss. And we were the ones who killed her.

LADY MARY
Oh, Matthew.

MATTHEW
We could never be happy now, don't you see? We are cursed, you and I. And there's nothing to be done about it. Let's be strong, Mary. And let's accept...that this is the end.

LADY MARY
Of course it's the end. How could it not be? [Carlisle walks up.]

SIR RICHARD CARLISLE
I'm so very sorry about this.

MATTHEW
Thank you.

SIR RICHARD CARLISLE
Can I walk you up to the house or, er...?

LADY MARY
Certainly you can. I want you to.

[Mary and Carlisle walk arm in arm back to the house, Mary just as upset as Matthew. Robert and Violet visit with Dr Clarkson and Reverend Travis. Robert looks over to see Branson talking to Sybil and goes to them.]

LADY SYBIL
It's so sad.

BRANSON
Yes.

ROBERT
Why are you here ?

BRANSON
To pay my respects to Miss Swire, and to see Sybil.

ROBERT
Lady Sybil.

LADY SYBIL
Oh, Papa, what's the point in all that nonsense?

ROBERT
I suppose you'll go to Dublin now. Isn't that your plan?

LADY SYBIL
In a day or two. Mama is well again and I see no reason to delay. Although, I do so wish we could have parted friends.

ROBERT
What about you? Do you want to "part friends"?

BRANSON
I do. Although, I don't expect to.
[Branson and Sybil turn to go.]

ROBERT
All right.
[They stop and turn back around.]

LADY SYBIL
What?

ROBERT
Well, if I can't stop you, I see no profit in a quarrel. You'll have a very different life from the one you might have lived, but if you're sure it's what you want.

[Sybil looks at Branson with a smile.]

LADY SYBIL
I am.

ROBERT
Then you may take my blessing with you, whatever that means.

LADY SYBIL
Oh, Papa. It means more than anything!
[She hugs him with delight.]

LADY SYBIL
More than anything!

ROBERT
If you mistreat her, I will personally have you torn to pieces by wild dogs.

BRANSON
I'd expect no less.

LADY SYBIL
Will you come over for the wedding?

ROBERT
We'll see. We'll talk about that later. And there'll be some money. But not much.

[Sybil smiles and kisses him on the cheek. Sybil and Branson walk off hand in hand. Violet approaches Robert and they follow.]

VIOLET
So, you've given in?

ROBERT
She would've gone anyway.
[Violet makes a noise at that.]

ROBERT
And perhaps we should let Lavinia's last gift to us be a reminder of what really matters. Of course, you'll think that's soft.

VIOLET
Well, not at all. The aristocracy has not survived by its intransigence. Oh, no, no, we must work with what we've got to minimize the scandal.

ROBERT
But what have we got to work with?

VIOLET
Well, you'd be surprised. He's political, isn't he? And a writer. Well, I could make something out of that. And there's a family called Branson with a place not far from Cork. I believe they have a connection with the Howards. Well, surely, we can hitch him onto them.

[INT. SERVANTS' CORRIDOR - DAY]
[The servants arrive home from the funeral. Mrs Patmore comes out of the kitchen when she sees them.]

MRS PATMORE
Mr Bates.

MR BATES
Are you all right, Mrs Patmore?

MRS PATMORE
I'm all right. There are two men waiting for you in the servants' hall.

[Mrs Patmore looks worried. Bates and Anna walk to the servants' hall. Mrs Hughes and Carson see the men and turn back to watch Mr Bates enter.]

MR BATES
Are you looking for me?

POLICEMAN
John Bates?

MR BATES
Yes.

POLICEMAN
You are under arrest on the charge of wilful murder. You are not obliged to say anything unless you desire to do so. Whatever you say will be taken down in writing and may be given in evidence against you upon your trial.

MR BATES
I understand.

[The other policeman takes Bates's wrist.]
ANNA BATES
No. No--

MR BATES
Please...do whatever is required.
[The policeman cuffs Bates.]

MR BATES
I love you.

MRS BATES
And I love you. For richer, for poorer, for better, for worse.
[Anna kisses him.]

POLICEMAN
Come along, sir.

[They lead Bates down the corridor, past all of the servants. Anna Bates stands in the servants hall watching after them, lip trembling.]
