You've lived your life, and I've lived mine. Now it's time we live them together.

Matthew

Matthew: Sorry for the vase.
Violet: Oh don't be. It' was a wedding present from a dreadful, dreadful aunt. I've hated it a half a century.

Richard: I'll be leaving in the morning, Lady Grantham, I doubt it we'll meet again.
Violet: Do you promise?

It may be wrong that I'm complaining with Mr. Bates the way he is, but it reminds me that life's short and I'm wasting mine.

Daisy

No fortune? He's lucky not to be playing the violin in Lester square.

Violet

Violet: Nineteen twenty. Is it to be believed? I feel as old as Methuselah.
Robert: But so much prettier.
Violet: When I think what the last ten years has brought, God knows what we're in for now.

Cora: Sybil's pregnant!
Robert: I see. So that's it then. No return. She's crossed the Rubicon.

Anna, you must prepare for the worst. I'm not saying it will happen, but you must prepare for it.

Bates

Daisy: Don't you believe in spirits then?
Mrs. Hughes: Well, I don't believe they play board games.

Violet: Oh this is love...what is it?
Isobel: What does it look like?
Violet: Something for getting stones out of horses hooves?
Isobel: It's a nutcracker. We thought you'd like it. To crack your nuts.

Richard: Why do we have to help ourselves at luncheon?
Robert: It's Downton tradition. They have our feast at luncheon and we have ours in the evening.
Richard: Well why can't they have their lunch early and they serve us, like they normally do.
Mary: Because it's Christmas day.
Richard: It's not how we'll do it at Haxsby.
Violet: Which I can easily believe.

Mrs. Hughes: I wish I could tell you not to worry.
Anna: My husband's on trial for his life, Mrs. Hughes, of course I worry.
Mrs. Hughes: Well, I'm I'd fashioned enough to believe that they can't prove him guilty, when he's not.
