SYBIL: The money came with a note that it was meant for the ticktets and it had a Downton postmark. I was hoping so much it was because Papa wanted have us here.
MATTHEW: I’m afraid not. It sounds more like something a mother would do. Didn’t you recognize the writing?
SYBIL: No. Tom was mad, because he can’t pay back the money. It’s bad enough for him to live on my aliment. He doesn’t want to spend a penny of it. That’s why he doesn’t want to buy some tails.
MATTHEW: The water is out.
MARY: Ring for it.
MATTHEW: No, it’s late. I go and get it.

MATTHEW: Where can I find Robert?
MARY: He went to his room immediately when he came back. He expects us all at eight in the library. Why?
MATTHEW: I’m not sure how to say it.
MARY: Try to.
MATTHEW: When I went over the books, it looked like money was wasted.
MARY: What do you mean?
MATTHEW: The way I see it, there has been no decent management for years. Rents weren’t paid or they’re too small and there’s no concept for maintenance. And half of the resources is not used properly or even ignored.
MARY: You want to say that Papa is responsible for that?
MATTHEW: No, nothing like that, of course not.
MARY: I don’t want appear haughty, Matthew, but I think an estate is different to a city business. Here are people, many people for whom we are responsible.
MATTHEW: But no one profits if it is run badly.
MARY: Well, if it appears like that to you, you should talk to Papa about it.
