The third series of Downton Abbey graced our telly screens last night! Well, if you live in the UK that is, if you live in one of other the 100+ countries which Downton Abbey is broadcasted in, I’m afraid you’ll have to be patient! It was straight after The X Factor so I guess it puts the good/bad telly into balance.
Here are a few of the one liners from the first episode:
“Never make an enemy by accident.”
“I’m expressing myself badly if you think it is not serious”
“Nothing must be done on the cheap.”
“Oh dear, have you swallowed a dictionary?”
“You should forget everything I say. I know I do.”
“Don’t worry about me. I’m an American. Have gun, will travel.”
“Did they lose your suitcase on the way over?” “No, it arrived safely, thank you – along with my manners”
“It’s nice to have someone from the real world, isn’t it?”
“Forgive; perhaps. Forget; never.”
“It seems so strange to think of the English embracing change.”
“You must take a tip from a modern American girl”
“She’s like a homing pigeon, she finds our underbelly every time.”
“I should hate to be predictable.” – Lady Mary when she got to the altar!
