|Lady Cora- New dress, new hairstyle!|
|Lady Violet, The Dowager Countess, looking very smart indeed!|
Lady Violet: I'm a woman, Mary, I can be as contrary as I choose!
Lady Violet: It's like living in a second-rate hotel where the guests keep arriving and no one seems to leave.
Lady Violet: God knows who the next heir will be. Probably a chimney sweep from Solihull!
I just about snorted my tea through my nose on that last one. Dame Maggie Smith looks like she is having the time of her life. She went right from Professor McGonagall to this role without skipping a beat. What more can an actress ask for?
|O'Brien and Mrs. Hughs vying for sour look of the night. Mrs. Hughs wins!|
Mrs. Hughs: I may not be a woman of the world but I don't live in a sack.
Apparently Ethel lives in a sack if she didn't think this one through. This was not the best way to get out of service Ethel! You just have to learn how to type, you little twit!
|O'Brien and Thomas aka "Poacher turned Gamekeeper"|
I do have to admit that I was tearing up at the end. "If you were the only girl in the world and I were the only boy …" By god, I love this show.
