Downton Abbey


!What a lovely day ?Are you quite sure about Lavinia .She wasn’t Sir Richard’s mistress .She gave him the evidence to settle a debt of someone she loved ?And this is your beau, is it? A man who lends money, then uses it to blackmail the recipient .He lives in a tough world ?And will you be joining him there .Richard Carlisle is powerful .He’s rich and getting richer .He wants to buy a proper house, you know – with an estate .He says, after the war, the market will be flooded and we can take our pick .Oh? And you can dance on the grave of a fallen family .They will fall, lots of them .Some won’t rise again, but I don’t intend to be among them .That leaves Matthew .That’s done now, Granny .Finished .It’s time to move forward ?What about Sybil? Does she have anyone in her sights .Not that I know of .Are you sure she has no chap in mind? How odd! I had an endless series of crushes at her age .I don’t think so ?Not even some man she doesn’t care to mention ?What do you mean .Well, war breaks down barriers and when peacetime re-erects them, it’s very easy to find oneself on the wrong side .Really, Granny! How can you say that I’m too worldly but Sybil’s not worldly enough? You cannot be so contrary .I’m a woman, Mary .I can be as contrary as I choose

.But I don’t understand .The patients are always served their luncheon at 12:30 .Well, today they’ll be served at one ?Is this something I can help with .Mrs Patmore seems to be disobeying my instructions and I can’t get to the reason why .If you mean the patients’ new lunchtime, Her Ladyship felt it made the staff luncheon unreasonably early .She moved it, so they could eat at noon .But that will interfere with the nurses’ shifts .Oh no, she’s altered those, too .Has she, indeed? Well, we’ll see about that .It was always a question of when

?May I have a word ?Can it wait .No, it cannot wait .I’ve just come from downstairs, where I learnt that my timetable has been wantonly disregarded If you mean the new lunchtime, the wretched servants were having to eat at 11 and then starve until their tea at six, so .I’ve also discovered that you torn up the nurses’ timetable .I haven’t torn up anything .It would be foolish to accuse you of being unprofessional, as you’ve never had a profession in your life !Now, just a minute -You may think you have the right to ordain the universe, but in this field No, not in this field – in this house, yes, I do have the right, given me by Doctor Clarkson and by the law of the land! This is my house, and I am in charge right alongside you! If you would stop your bullying – That’s enough! I will not listen to this .If I am not appreciated here, I will seek some other place where I will make a difference .Good .I mean it .I cannot operate where I am not valued !You must see that .Certainly .I shall go .I will .Perhaps it would be best .I repeat – I mean it .I’m sure you do – and so do I
