Movie: Gosford Park [2001] Movie: Gosford Park [2001]

Mrs. Wilson: Not much of a crime to stab a dead man, is it? They can never touch him. That's what's important, his life.
Mary Maceachran: And your life?
Mrs. Wilson: Didn't you hear me? I'm the perfect servant; I have no life.More Movie: Gosford Park [2001] Movie: Gosford Park [2001] [04/22/2007 12:04:00]
Lady Sylvia McCordle: Where's that wretched Mabel.
Constance, Countess of Trentham: Has anyone checked her outfit? She's probably in black velvet with a feather in her hair.
Lavinia Meredith: She's in the morning room looking perfectly normal. Don't be such a snob aunt Constance.
Constance, Countess of Trentham: Me? I haven't a snobish bone in my body.More Movie: Gosford Park [2001] Movie: Gosford Park [2001] [04/22/2007 12:04:00]
Constance: Mary, I don't think I'll wear that shirt after all. The other one's warmer, that's all I care about.More Movie: Gosford Park [2001] Movie: Gosford Park [2001] [04/22/2007 12:04:00]
Constance: Do you think he'll be as long as he usually is?More Movie: Gosford Park [2001] Movie: Gosford Park [2001] [04/22/2007 12:04:00]
Lady Sylvia McCordle: Mrs Wilson, a major crisis has arisen. I've just found out that Mr Weissman won't eat meat and I don't know what to do and I can't ask Mrs Croft. I simply don't dare.
Mrs. Wilson: Oh, everything's under control your ladyship. Mr Weissman's valet informed us as soon as he arrived so we've prepared a special version of the soup, he can eat the fish and the hors d'oeuvres, there'll be a welsh rarebit for the game course, I'm not sure what we're going to do about the entree but we'll think of something.
Lady Sylvia McCordle: Thank you Mrs Wilson. Ten steps ahead as always. Which one of you is Mr Weissman's valet?
Henry Denton: I am, your Ladyship.
Lady Sylvia McCordle: Are you indeed. Yes. Well. Thank you for your...
[pause while she takes a good look at him]
Lady Sylvia McCordle: efficiency.

Constance: They're rather a mixed bunch. That Mr. Weissman's very odd. Apparently, he produces motion pictures. The Charlie Chan Mysteries. Or does he direct them? I never know the difference. Mary! I suppose it's fun having a film star staying but there's always so little to talk about after the first flush of recognition. And why has Freddy Nesbitt brought that awful common little wife of his? Isabel only asked him because another gun dropped out; that's no excuse to inflict her on us all. Mary... Tomorrow, I'll have breakfast in bed, and then get straight up into the tweeds. What shirt have you brought?
Mary Maceachran: The green with the pink stripe.
Constance: Oh no dear, no. No, that's quite wrong. Always something very plain for country sports - the one I wore today will do.
Mary Maceachran: But it's soiled.
Constance: Well you can wash it, can't you?More Movie: Gosford Park [2001] Movie: Gosford Park [2001] [04/22/2007 12:04:00]
Constance: Tell me, how much longer are you going to go on making films?
Ivor Novello: I suppose that rather depends on how much longer the public want to see me in them.
Constance: It must be hard to know when it's time to throw in the towel... What a pity about that last one of yours... what was it called? "The Dodger"?
Ivor Novello: The Lodger.
Constance: The Lodger. It must be so disappointing when something just *flops* like that.More Movie: Gosford Park [2001] Movie: Gosford Park [2001] [04/22/2007 12:04:00]
Mary Maceachran: Nobody can stab a corpse and not know it.

Constance: Could you imagine someone being hanged because of something I said.

[at the banquet dinner table]
Sir William McCordle: And why shouldn't I be interested in films? You don't know what I'm interested in.
Lady Sylvia McCordle: Well, I know you're interested in money and fiddling with your guns. But I admit it: when it comes to anything else, I'm stumped.
Elsie (Head Housemaid): Now, that is not fair, Bill is...

[Morris Weissman is asked about his upcoming movie project]
Lady Sylvia McCordle: Mr Weissman.
Morris Weissman: Yes?
Lady Sylvia McCordle: Tell us about the film you're going to make.
Morris Weissman: Oh, sure. It's called "Charlie Chan In London". It's a detective story.
Mabel Nesbitt: Set in London?
Morris Weissman: Well, not really. Most of it takes place at a shooting party in a country house. Sort of like this one, actually. Murder in the middle of the night, a lot of guests for the weekend, everyone's a suspect. You know, that sort of thing.
Constance: How horrid. And who turns out to have done it?
Morris Weissman: Oh, I couldn't tell you that. It would spoil it for you.
Constance: Oh, but none of us will see it.More Movie: Gosford Park [2001] Movie: Gosford Park [2001] [04/22/2007 12:04:00]
Henry Denton: You Brits really don't have a sense of humor do you?
Elsie (Head Housemaid): We do if something's funny, sir.More Movie: Gosford Park [2001] Movie: Gosford Park [2001] [04/22/2007 12:04:00]
Constance: Tell me, what happened to William's little maid? I never saw her again after that dinner.
Mary Maceachran: Elsie?
Constance: Hmm.
Mary Maceachran: She's gone.
Constance: Aw, it's a pity, really. I thought it was a good idea to have someone in the house who is actually sorry he's dead.More Movie: Gosford Park [2001] Movie: Gosford Park [2001] [04/22/2007 12:04:00]
Mrs. Croft: He's very full of himself, I must say. Doesn't eat meat. He's coming to a shooting party and he doesn't eat meat.
Mrs. Wilson: Now now Mrs Croft. We don't want to be thought unsophisticated do we? Mr Weissman's an American. They do things differently there.More Movie: Gosford Park [2001] Movie: Gosford Park [2001] [04/22/2007 12:04:00]

Robert Parks: [laughs] No, I meant your real name.
Mary Maceachran: Oh. Mary. Mary MacEachren.
Robert Parks: Blimey. What does Her Ladyship call you?
Mary Maceachran: Well, she should call me MacEachren now I'm a lady's maid. At least that's what my mother says. But Her Ladyship can't pronounce it, so she just calls me Mary.
