Downton Abbey Quips
I love the television show Downton Abbey. The story is intriguing, the characters are captivating, and the quips of the Dowager Countess of Grantham (Violet Crawley) are outrageous and amusing. She is hands-down, my favorite character and her relationship with Mrs. Crawley is downright hilarious. She comes across as a snobbish and mean old lady, but deep down she has a soft heart for her family. She is quite loveable in her own way.
Memorable Downton Abbey Quip…
Countess Violet: “You are quite wonderful the way you see room for improvement wherever you look. I never knew such reforming zeal.”
Mrs. Crawley: “I take that as a compliment.”
Countess Violet: “I must’ve said it wrong.”
