I want PAMUK-caliber dirt!"

trying to insult you, Izzie."

than a fruitcake, dear."
Ha! Mrs Patmore!! You randy vixen, you!! Rudolph Valentino makes her "shiver all over"!! And how about Mr. Carson's retort; "What a very disturbing thought." That is tremendous. I love how he just shits on everyone straight to their face, without giving it a second thought. He's like your dad...but worse.
Poor Mama. She already committed to entertaining the ladies at a charity dinner tomorrow...but she's just so tired from sitting around reading books. Can we give this poor woman a break? It is NOT easy eating breakfast in bed every morning and being dressed by someone all day. All the poor thing wants to do is sit at her night table and rub cream on her elbows. Is that so wrong???
And how about the letters, saying that MaMA's brother has invested poorly?? And she abuses him for it! What about her husband who knows as much about investing as Mary's kid and baby Sybie?? Lorddddddddd the judgments!!!
|"If you don't seat us, Mr. Bates will kill you in your sleep."|
"She's right. I'll do it."
You know...I can't help but wonder. Doesn't everyone in town know each other ?? Wouldn't you think the maitre d would know Mr Bates and/or Anna...and know they work at Downton?? I get that Yorkshire was rather large...but how far would they have gone from home to go out to dinner?
PaPA: "My most darling girl, what's the matter?"
Edith: "But I'm not your most darling girl, am I?
You GO, girl!!! MENTION that elephant in the room for once!! And oooh PaPA - you don't know the half of it. Gregson is a lot more than a missing chap, m'lord. He's your fourth most darling girl's baby daddy! Run and tell THAT!!! (Poor Edith. Even dead Sybil comes before her.)

Early 20th century English rich people question of the day:
Why is the gong rung at 7 if they don't go to drawing room until 8? Riddle me that, please.
Look at Molesley! Serve the servants! That rules! Better watch out, Thomas will tell you he doesn't like it and make you fetch him another!
"I'm not UNhappy...I'm just not quite ready to be happy." More words of wisdom from Lady Mary. I do understand them, though. I wonder what's going to happen with the cutie pie she blew off a few weeks ago. If he shows up at Downton with his bride, I'll hurl.
|"I think they're all nuts. |
But they pay well."
|"She loves me." "My elbows need cream."|
(OMG HOW awesome would it be if
Come on Edith - maMA knew about Pamuk...surely you can tell her you've got a bun in the oven! She's a very forgiving woman! Espesh when she's sipping her funny tea. Opium. It's not just for breakfast anymore! (NOTE: No, there is no evidence that MaMA's tea is spiked; I just like to pretend it is. How else does one account for the plethora of ridiculous things that come out of her mouth?)
Band leader: "I've been so well looked after here." CLEARLY, sir. You'd have been even more well looked after had Lady Mary not caught your ass down in the servants quarters with her cousin. You're lucky it was her. She isn't nearly as judgmental as the rest of them...what with her dalliance with Mr. Pamuk and all.
Don't you love how Mary yells at the top of her lungs "Is anyone still awake down here?" Well they are now!!! I'd have thought they'd all have come running in their night caps.
Can't wait for Sunday!!
