Beware! There are spoilers up through episode 6 of series/season 2.
Words to live by:
“As my future wife, you’re entitled to be in my debt.”
The sweetest expression of marital privilege and intimacy, as expressed to Mary by her skeezy fiancé, the newspaper baron.
“Sometimes the future needs terrible sacrifices.”
“Sometimes a hard sacrifice must be made for a future that’s worth having.”
This is what Branson (the chauffeur) says to Sybil (noble lady) in a speech in which he takes their forbidden romance and the drastic social barriers that must be broken in order to live out that love and compares it to the murder of the Russian royal family and how that sucked and all and he’s sorry about it but it was probably necessary for social progress. Yay…?
