Why did you apologize to that man?
It's not his business what we do.
I always apologize when I'm in the wrong. It's a habit of mine.
The plain fact is, Mr Bates, through no fault of his own,
is not able to fulfill the extra duties expected of him.
He can't lift, he can't serve at table, he's dropping things all over the place.
手不能提 腿不能立 还四处碰落东西
On a night like tonight, he should act as a third footman.
As it is, my Lord, we may have to have a maid in the dining room.
可是 老爷 现在只好用女仆代替
Cheer up, Carson. There are worse things happening in the world.
行了 Carson 世上还有更糟的事
Not worse than a maid serving a duke.
So you're quite determined?
It's a hard decision, your Lordship, a very hard decision,
这是个艰难的决定 老爷 情非得已
but the honour of Downton is at stake.
Don't worry, Carson. I know all about hard decisions
别担心 Carson 说到唐顿大体
when it comes to the honour of Downton, don't I, boy?
我太理解艰难的决定了 对吧 小子内容来自 听力课堂网：http://www.tingclass.net/show-8997-274933-1.html
