Ep. 01 | Aired Jan 6, 2013

WEDDING BELLSĀ Will Mary and Matthew's eight-year back and forth come to an end?


And here are the Dowager Countess' best lines ...

"Family must never be a topic of conversation."

"An aristocrat with no servants is as much use to the county as a glass hammer."

"Tomorrow, let's ask the servants to dine with us to make things easier."

"Forgive? Perhaps. Forget? Never."

"She is like a homing pigeon. She finds our underbelly every time. " -- on Martha

"I am a woman of many parts."

"No guest should be admitted without the date of their departure settled."

"Never mistake a wish for a certainty."

"Do you think I might have a drink? Oh I'm so sorry, I thought you were a waiter." -- to Robert, when he's wearing the wrong suit for dinner.
