Mr. Carson : And what makes you think you'll be any good?
Joseph Molesley : I don't know exactly. Perhaps because I want it so much.
Mr. Carson : There are plenty of little boys who want to be famous cricketers. It's not enough to make them champions.
Joseph Molesley : I just want to try, Mr Carson.
Mrs. Hughes : And so you shall.
Mr. Carson : You have no qualms about dragging the family we serve into the mud?
Mrs. Hughes : It's their choice, Mr Carson. They're all grown people, surely?
Mr. Carson : Well, I've always known that women were ruthless, but I didn't think I'd find the proof in my own wife!
Mrs. Patmore : And there's me thinking how kind they were to come to the rescue.
Mrs. Hughes : And so they are. Just tell them yes and arrange the day.
Mrs. Hughes : And you won't have to be a witness?
Mrs. Patmore : So Mr Willis said. But I've still lost every one of my bookings. I'm a laughing stock.
Mr. Carson : I did wonder about the whole idea from the beginning.
Mrs. Hughes : You did not! It's exactly what we're planning to do.
Mr. Carson : Then clearly we're going to have to be a lot more careful than Mrs Patmore, aren't we?
