Downton Abbey Season 6 Episode 7 Best Lines

Daisy: Oh, my God!
Mrs. Hughes: I will thank you not to take the Lord's name in vain.
Daisy: I hope it's not in vain. I need all the help I can get!

By the way, I love the way Carson really got it from the women in this episode. He has been such a jerk since he married his beloved Elsie!

Mrs. Patmore (to Daisy): Love isn't finite. If Mr. Mason makes new friends, it doesn't mean he has any less love for found the love of a father there and you can count on him.

Mr. Dawes (to Mr. Molesley): There are Oxford and Cambridge graduates who know far less than you do. You should be proud!

Violet: Do you enjoy weddings?
Isobel: Yes but I'm not going to that one. I'd feel like the wicked fairy at the christening of Sleeping Beauty!

Violet: While angry, I say things some people find hard to forgive. So I have decided to go away.  I'd rather vent my rage on the desert air...and return when I have gained control of my tongue.
Isobel: Your self-knowledge is an example to us all.

Violet: I'll call on Mrs. Cruikshank before I leave.
Isobel: I suspect she's quite a tough nut.
Violet: And I'm quite a tough nutcracker!

Violet: My reason for traveling is to make myself eager to come home. A month among the French should manage it!

Tom to Mary (on a matter of the heart): You will be hurt again and so will I because being hurt is part of being alive. But that is no reason to give up on the man who is right for you.

Mary (to Henry Talbot): I want you to have a long and happy life. Just not with me.

Lord Grantham: It was a bloody awful business. A bloody, bloody awful business.
Rosamund: The English language never lets you down.
Lord Grantham: Oh, shut up!

Bertie Pelham: If love is allowed to weigh in the balance, I've got plenty of that!

Sorry for the late posting on this wonderful Downton episode. Life got in the way.

Downton Abbey Season 6 Episode 6 Best Lines

Lady Violet: Roll up! Roll up! Visit an actual dining room complete with a real life table and chairs!

Daisy: You don't want to encourage (Mrs. Patmore). She's too curious for her own good.
Mr. Mason: Just give her the note.


As a reader of The Guardian asked "What is up with Daisy trying to nookie block Mrs. Patmore?" Nookie block! Good one!

Isobel: People have always tipped the butler to look 'round a house. Even Elizabeth Bennett wanted to see what Pemberley was like inside.
Lady Violet: A decision which caused her a great deal of embarrassment if I remember the novel correctly!

Lady Cora: It was the monk's refectory of an Abbey that King Henry sold after the Dissolution of the Monasteries.
Visitor: Is that why it's call Downton Abbey?
Lady Cora: ...I guess so!

Visitor: Tell us about these people.
Lady Edith: Well they were all rather marvelous and..sort that life.

Visitor: What about the architect?
Lady Edith: Sir Charles Barry? Yes, he built the houses of parliament. Or at least he finished them. And, you know, he built lots of...lovely buildings.

Henry Talbot: You're the boss!

Tom Branson: He's nice, he's mad about you and he loves cars. I rest my case!

Mr. Carson: What's to stop them slipping the odd first edition into their back pockets?

Mr. Carson: The next thing you know there's a guillotine in Trafalgar Square!

Thomas: So my word is still not good enough Mr. Carson after all these years.
Mr. Carson: I only wish it were.

Lord Grantham: Golly Moses! You astound me. And all from the sale of tickets!

Lady Mary: Downton Abbey is where the Crawleys belong. This is weakling talk. Thankfully, George and I are made of sterner stuff. And we are not going anywhere.


Hear, hear Lady Mary. And yet it is Tom Branson who is predicting the future of the English Country House. Not only do you have to open it to the public regularly, you have to rent it out for weddings and the odd period drama as a filming location in order to pay for upkeep and repairs.

Can't wait for next week!
