Mary Crawley and Matthew Crawley | Downton AbbeyLady Mary, I hope you didn’t misunderstand me. I was only joking. Of course! And I agree. The whole thing is a complete joke. | But the sea monster didn’t get her, did he? No. Just when it seemed he was the only solution to her father’s problems, she was rescued. By Perseus. That’s right. Perseus. Son of a God. Rather more fitting, wouldn’t you say? That depends. I’d have to know more about the princess and the sea monster in question. | On the contrary, you mean a great deal. A very…great deal. | Goodnight cousin Matthew. Goodnight | Maybe I’ll shine by comparison. Maybe you will. | You think I’m a dull boy anyway, don’t you? | I suppose you didn’t want him when he wanted you and now, it’s the other way around. You have to admit, it’s quite funny.| If you really like an argument we should see more of each other. | Don’t play with me. I don’t deserve it. Not from you. | Shall I remind you of some of the choicest remarks you made about me when I arrived here, because they live in my memory as fresh as the day they were spoken. Oh Matthew what am I always telling you? You must pay no attention to the things I say. | I think I may have loved him for much longer than I knew. | Do you love me enough to spend your life with me? | Would you have stayed?…if I had accepted you? Of course. | Why, don’t you want me? Of course I want you. Very much. | I think I’m very glad to see you looking so well. | Mary, if I don’t come back - But - No, if I don’t then do remember how very glad I am we made up when we had the chance. I mean it. You send me off to war a happy man. | Dear Lord, I don’t pretend to have much credit with you. I’m not even sure that you’re there. But if you are, and if I’ve ever done anything good, I beg you to keep him safe. | If you were the only girl in the world and I were the only boy, nothing else would matter in the world today. We would go on lovin’ in the same old way. A Garden of Eden just made for two with nothing to mar our joy. I would say such wonderful things to you, there would be such wonderful things to do. If you were the only girl in the world and I were the only boy. | I suddenly felt terribly cold. | If I thought for a moment that I was an argument against your marriage I should jump into the nearest river. And how would you manage that without my help? I’d get you to push me in.
