Isobel Crawley: May I have a word?

Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham: Can it wait?

Isobel Crawley: No it cannot wait. I've just come from downstairs where I learned that my timetable has been wantonly disregarded.

Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham: If you mean the new lunchtime, the wretched servants were having to eat at 11 and then starve until their tea at 6 so...

Isobel Crawley: I also discovered that you tore up the nurses timetable.

Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham: I haven't torn up anything.

Isobel Crawley: Of course, it would be foolish to accuse you of being unprofessional since you've never had a profession in your life.

Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham: Now, just a minute...

Isobel Crawley: You may think you have the right to ordain the universe, but in this field...

Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham: No, not in this field, in this house yes I do have the right given me by Dr Clarkson and by the law of the land. This is my house and I am in charge right alongside you and if you would stop your bullying...

Isobel Crawley: 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.

Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham: Good.

Isobel Crawley: I mean it. I cannot operate where I am not valued. You must see that.

Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham: Certainly.

Isobel Crawley: I shall go. I will.

Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham: Perhaps it would be best.

Isobel Crawley: I repeat. I mean it.

Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham: I'm sure you do. And so do I.

Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham: Is it true they're fed from our kitchens?

Daisy Robinson: Only the stuff the army gives.

Mrs. Patmore: That's right. We only use the food the army pays for and all the men have served their country.

Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham: [pause] In future, I would prefer it if you would use food paid for by the house. I don't want the army to accuse us of mismanagement.

Sarah O'Brien: You mean you're going to let them get away with it?

Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham: Oh more than that. I'm going to help them and so are you. Molesley, if you bring that table across we can split the food and form two lines and it will go faster.
