    • Carson: (Entering Lady Sybil's bedroom to find Gwen sitting on the bed, with Anna hovering over her and Daisy, who has not had any breakfast, holding Lady Sybil's biscuit jar.) Gwen? May I ask why you are sitting on Lady Sybil's bed?
      Gwen: Well, you see, I had a turn, like a burst of sickness, just sudden-like. I had to sit down.
      Anna: It's true.
      Carson: Well, you'd better go and lie down. I'll tell Mrs Hughes.
      Gwen: No, I don't need to interrupt her morning. I'm sure I'll be fine if I could just put my feet up.
      Carson: How many bedrooms have you still got to do?
      Anna: Just one. Lady Edith's.
      Carson: And you can manage on your own.
      Anna: Well, she's no use to man or beast in that state. Go on. Shoo.
      Carson: (Glancing up to notice Daisy.) Daisy, may I ask why you are holding Lady Sybil's biscuit jar?
      Daisy: (Stammering out a response.) Em... I was just... Polishing it... Before I put it back.
      Carson: See that you do.
