Violet to Robert: "When you talk like that I’m tempted to ring the bell for nanny and send you to bed with no supper."
Mary (dropping her perfume bottle): "Damn. Now the room’s going to smell like a tart’s boudoir."
Moseley to Bates: "You’re not discourteous, Mr Bates, I’ll give you that. But you’re not friendly."
Carson: "We shout and scream and wail and cry, but in the end we must all die."
Hughes: "Ah. That’s cheered me up."
Edith to Gregson (about staying in London. Don't get carried away just yet...): "It's getting harder and harder to say no."
Bates to Anna: "You have put up with so much that I couldn't change, so if there is ever the slightest thing I can make better for you I will."
Rose to local boy Sam Thorley: "I never saw anything so brave as the way you punched that horrid man."
