I’m bad. While I was looking for inspirational pictures for this board – I ran across some spoiler pictures from the next season! Straight from British tabloids – click at your own risk!

Dowager Countess Zingers:

“What is a weekend?”

Cora: “Things are different in America.”
Lady Grantham: “I know. They live in wigwams.”

(Upon being told the swivel chair was invented by Thomas Jefferson) “Why does every day involve a fight with an American?”

“So that’s Mary’s replacement. Well I suppose looks aren’t everything.”

Sir Richard: “I’m leaving in the morning. I doubt we’ll meet again.”
Lady Grantham: “Do you promise?”

Mrs Crawley: “I take that as a compliment.”
Lady Grantham: “I must have said it wrong.”

 “I have plenty of friends I don’t like.”

“Last night! He looked so well. Of course it would happen to a foreigner. No Englishman would dream of dying in someone else’s house.”

 “One can’t go to pieces at the death of every foreigner. We’d all be in a constant state of collapse whenever we opened a newspaper.”

(Struggling with the newly installed telephone) “Is this an instrument of communication, or torture?”

“Please don’t speak that man’s name. We are about to eat.”

“He was too like his mother and a nastier woman never drew breath.”

“We can’t have him assassinated…I suppose?”

“Why do you always have to pretend to be nicer than the rest of us?”

“It always seemed rather dark when my mother in law lived here, but then she did make everything rather dark.”

“You’ll just have to take her abroad. In these moments… you can normally find an Italian who isn’t too picky.”

“I was right about my maid. She’s leaving. To get married. How could she be so selfish?”
