    • QUOTES (3)

      • Earl of Grantham: Can't we stop this?
        Dowager Countess: How? It's like a runaway train.

      • Michael Gregson: Shall I make us some coffee?
        Edith Crawley: You are so domesticated!
        Michael Gregson: No, not really! [Name of servant] just lays it all out, I merely have to pour in the water.
        Edith Crawley: I mean it! Compared to Papa you are a famous chef. Really, he can't boil a kettle! If the servants left, he'd be found in a passage, dead, arms stretched out, looking for the kitchen.

      • Violet Crawley: Or are you trying to hide from the truth?
        Robert Crawley: What truth?
        Violet Crawley: That you would prefer to be in sole charge of the estate and not share the crown with Mary?
        Robert Crawley: Don't be silly! This (a letter of Matthew that states his wishes for Mary to become his sole heiress) won't make any difference to all that! She won't want to get involved.
        Violet Crawley: When you talk like that I am tempted to ring for Nanny and have you put to bed with no supper...
        Robert Crawley: >Robert makes a grumpy face
