Dan Stevens as Matthew Crawley and Michelle Dockery as Lady Mary Crawley.

Downton Abbey: Season Three (2012)

I would like to have seen this picture with her face uncovered because I don’t remember seeing her smile quite like she does here. But, I thought the verbal exchange says a lot about their relationship. 


Michelle Dockery as Lady Mary Crawley and Dan Stevens as Matthew Crawley having a conversation that’s not what it seems to be. Double entendre, anyone?

Downton Abbey: Season Two (Episode 2)

My Cousin, Captain Crawley.

Matthew, it’s torture for all of us. And if I ever look as if I’m finding it easy to lose my home, then I am putting on an act.


I would never be happy with anyone else as long as you walk the earth.


"You came. To be honest, I wasn’t completely sure you would." "I’m glad to hear it. I should hate to be predictable."

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.
