Matthew Crawley: I am the cat that walks by himself, and all places are alike to me
[from Rudyard Kipling's "Just So Stories"]
Matthew Crawley: . I have nothing to give, and nothing to share. And if you were Not engaged to be married, I wouldn't allow you anywhere near me.
Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham: I don't dislike him. I just don't like him, which is quite different.
Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham: [to Mary and the Earl] I am an American. I don't share your English hatred of comfort.
Sarah O'Brien: [snooping with a catty remark] You're always goin' up and down to London, Mr. Bates.
John Bates: I have business in London.
Sarah O'Brien: Well, judging by your expression, your business doesn't seem to be too prosperous.
Anna Smith: The trick of business is to mind your own.
