[the estate manager has resigned because of Matthew's proposed changes, and Cora and Violet suggest that Robert offers the job to Tom]
Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham: I'll do it on one condition - no, two. First, Matthew must agree.
Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham: He will.
Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham: Second, you will both admit it when you realise you were wrong.
Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham: Oh, well, that is an easy caveat to accept, because I'm *never* wrong.
[to the other servants]
Alfred Nugent: They're showing a film tonight in the village hall. "Way Down East". It's about a wronged woman who survives in the wilderness through her own wits and courage.
Sarah O'Brien: [grimly] Blimey! They've stolen my life story!
Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham: [Edith is considering writing for a newspaper] Mama, talk to her. Talk to all of them. Say something sensible.
Isobel Crawley: Yes, let's hear how a woman's place is in the home.
Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham: I do think a woman's place is eventually in the home, but I see no harm in her having some fun before she gets there.
Lady Edith Crawley: Oh Granny! Thank you!
Isobel Crawley: [to Violet] Have you changed your pills?
Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham: [chuckles]
Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham: And another thing. I mean, Edith isn't getting any younger. Perhaps she isn't cut out for domestic life.
Lady Edith Crawley: [sighs]
Charles Carson: Human nature is a funny business, isn't it?
Mrs. Hughes: [sarcastically] Now why didn't the poets come to you, Mr. Carson? They'd have saved themselves a lot of time and trouble.
Charles Carson: Welcome back, Mr. Bates. I've waited a long time to say that.
George Murray: ...the third Earl nearly went bankrupt, the 4th only saved the estate by dying, and what would you all have done in the '90s without Lady Grantham's money?
Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham: I say, Murray, when I asked you to say what you think, I didn't mean to be taken literally.
Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham: [to Cora and the Dowager about acceding to their request to put Tom in charge of the estate] Second, you will both admit it when you realize you were wrong.
Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham: Oh, well, that is an easy caveat to accept because I'm never wrong.
Tom Branson: My brother's comin' over. He'll stay in the village.
Lady Mary Crawley: No, he won't. He'll stay here
Tom Branson: He's a bit of a diamond in the rough.
Lady Mary Crawley: I'm very fond of diamonds.
