So, Downton Abbey is all the rage and I literally just started watching it. Unfortunately for me we don’t have the channel it comes on….fortunately I can watch it on Amazon Prime so watching I am. I am only a few episodes in but I am loving it. How could I not when Dame Maggie Smith, one of my favorite actresses, is in it! I rounded up a few quotes online, from the show, for you to enjoy….so enjoy!!
“Of course it would happen to a foreigner. No Englishman would dream of dying in someone else’s house.”
“I love you, Mr. Bates! And I know it’s not ladylike to say so, but I’m not a lady and I don’t pretend to be.”
“No one ever learned anything from a governess except for French, and how to curtsy.”
“I hope you know that really smart people sleep in separate rooms.”
“No one ever tells you about raising daughters. You think it’ll be like Little Women, and instead they’re at each others’ throats.”
“What’s a ‘weekend?’”
“I’m a woman, Mary. I can be as contrary as I choose.”
“Don’t be defeatist, dear. It’s very middle class.”
I can’t wait to get caught up on the episodes and see what this big scandal is that is supposed to be coming. Do you watch Downton Abbey? Who is your favorite character? What is one of your favorite quotes from the show?
