Robert, dear, I don't mean to sound harsh.
You may not mean to, but I bet you will.
24 years ago you married Cora, against my wishes, for her money.
Give it away now,
and what was the point of your peculiar marriage in the first place?
If I were to tell you she'd made me happy,
would that stretch belief?
It's not why you chose her.
Above all the other girls who could have filled my shoes so easily.
If you must know, when I think of my motives for pursuing Cora,
There's no need to remind me of them.
Don't you care about Downton?
What do you think?
I've given my life to Downton.
I was born here and I hope to die here.
I claim no career beyond the nurture of this house and estate.
It is my third parent and my fourth child.
Do I care about it? Yes, I do care!
I hope I don't hear sounds of a disagreement.
Is that what they call discussion in New York?
I'm glad you're fighting. I'm glad somebody's putting up a fight
You're not really fighting Granny?
Your grandmother merely wishes to do the right thing.
And so do I.
