- Don't worry. It's nobody.

Sorry, Miss Isobel.

Do you really think you'll have

a chance to speak to him tonight?

- Would you stop going on about it?

- Izzy, that's all very well...

I think it's ridiculous.

I'm here to shoot.

Darling, it's a relief to me to sit next

to someone who isn't deaf in one ear.

I'm sorry?

Darling, what do you mean, "leave it"?

Well, I just meant

let it come naturally.

Don't try and steer

the conversation.

- It makes you sound so desperate.

- Well, I am fucking desperate.

Hello, Raymond. This is

my brother-in-law, Lord Stockbridge.

Hello. I'm Morris Weissman.

- Who?

- Morris Weissman.

- Weissman, yes.

- Hello.

Oh, Elsie? Elsie,

this is Lord Stockbridge's valet.

He's new to the house,

so show him around, will you?

You'll be sharing with

Mr. Weissman's man.

- Has His Lordship's luggage gone up?

- Supposedly.

He's in the Tapestry room,

wherever that is.

Oh, well, here we go again.

That's just it. I've never

done a house party before, not properly.

How come you got taken on as a countess

lady's maid, if you've got no experience?

She wants to train me. She said

she didn't care about experience.

She didn't want

to pay for it, you mean.

It's cold in here.

You should know to pack your woollies

when you come to this house.

Here we are.

- Is everything all right, Elsie?

- Fine, Miss Lewis. Thanks.

That's your bed there.

- That good? Yeah, that's tasty.

- Very tasty.

I think I'll...

I shall go in the library.

Here you are, Pip, Pip.

I beg your pardon, sir. I thought

I'd just take the Times up with me...

- in case you'd like to read it when you're dressing.

- Thank you, Probert.

- Look after Pip for me. Good boy.

- Of course, sir.

I have to make a telephone call
