Would you stay, if I asked you to?


Matthew: Mary, if I don’t come back—

Mary: But—

Matthew: —No, if I don’t, then do remember how very glad I am that we made up when we had the chance. I mean it. You send me off to war a happy man. ..Will you do something for me? Will you—will you look after Mother if anything happens—

Mary: Of course we will. But it won’t.

Matthew: And Lavinia? She’s young, and she will find someone else—I hope she does anyway—but… until she does?

[Mary nods, and the train whistle blows]

Mary: Goodbye then. [she kisses his cheek] And such good luck.

Matthew: Goodbye, Mary. And God bless you.

Downton Abbey 2.1

You must say it properly. I won’t answer unless you… kneel down and everything.

Downton Abbey Series 1 - Michelle Dockery as Lady Mary Crawley and Dan Stevens as Matthew Crawley (2010).

Mary knew the blonde haired man in front of her was trouble. She had worked her life as the cop of the Crawley family and here he was tricking her senses. He sent chills down her spine and made her want to cross the line. Matthew was a criminal and was now making her no longer see everything in black and white but grey.

… the very opposite of nothing.

We were a show that flopped.
