[O'Brien holds a white cloth as she talks to Anna and Gwen as the house maids make the bed.]
O'Brien: Neither were picked up. That's what he said.
Anna: Mr Crawley and Mr Patrick?
O'Brien: That's what he said.
Her Ladyship was the color of this cloth.
Gwen: Well, it's a terrible shame if it's true.
O'Brien: It's worse than a shame. It's a complication.
[O'Brien leaves. Gwen and Anna follow O'Brien down the servants' staircase.]
Gwen: What do you mean?
O'Brien: What do you think?
Mr Crawley was his Lordship's cousin and heir to the title.
Gwen: I thought Lady Mary was the heir.
She's a girl, stupid. Girls can't inherit.
她是个姑娘 傻丫头 女儿家没有继承权
But now Mr Crawley's dead, and Mr Patrick was his only son.
So what happens next?
Anna: It's a dreadful thing.
[The maids find Mr Bates standing in the servants' corridor with his cane and travel bag.]
Bates: Hello? I've been waiting at the back door... I knocked, but no-one came.
你们好 我一直在后门等 敲了门却没人应
O'Brien: So you pushed in?
Bates: I'm John Bates, the new valet.
我是John Bates 新来的贴身男仆
O'Brien: The new valet?
Bates: That's right.
[O'Brien looks down at Bates's cane.]
O'Brien: You're early. Came on the milk train.
Bates: Thought I'd get to know the place, start tonight.
Anna: I'm Anna, the head housemaid.
Bates: How do you do?

You'd better come along with us.
