Lady Mary Crawley: When does the American contingent arrive, and how on earth are we going to manage them?
Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham: Don't be ashamed of my mother, Mary; she's your grandmother, too.
Lady Rose MacClare: I think it's very kind of them to come over for my ball.
Lady Mary Crawley: You haven't met her yet. And where will everyone sleep? This place isn't designed for house parties.
Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham: We'll manage. Perhaps you could share with Edith?
Lady Mary Crawley: You're joking.
Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham: Well, someone may have to sleep on the top floor... with the servants.
Lady Mary Crawley: [With disgust] I'd rather sleep on the roof than share with Edith.

Season 4 Trivia

  • Episode 09 - Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): In the ball scene towards the end of the episode, we clearly see that only a string trio is playing, yet the soundtrack is obviously that of a lush, full string orchestra.
  • Episode 01 - Nanny West calls baby Sybil Branson a "Filthy cross-breed". Many people in the 1800s considered the Irish to be a lower form of evolution, with signs and advertisements saying "No Irish Need Apply". While these views were anachronistic in the 1920s, many people still held them - as is shown by
  • Episode 01 - When Mrs. Hughes tells Mr. Carson that Charlie Grigg is in the workhouse, she tells him its "as bad as if we were reading about it in a novel by Dickens." Mr. Carson's response, "Haven't they closed the workhouses?" paraphrases a line from Dickens' "A Christmas Carol."
  • Episode 07 - When being told that Lord Gillingham is staying the evening at Downton, Charles Blake asks: "Didn't he used to be Tony Foyle?" (Peers often use their titles as surnames when they inherit them).
  • Episode 03 - Goof (continuity error): During preparation for dinner, Lord Grantham is walking around the table and stops to pick up a card at one of the place settings. He holds it in front of him with both hands but in the next shot, he is holding it only with his left hand with his right hand down by his side.
