Mrs. Patmore: Daisy, have you washed the brains?
Daisy: Yes, Mrs. Patmore.
Ethel: There’s no way I’m eating Brain Cakes for my supper. What are they having upstairs?
O’Brien: Never you mind.
Branson: They should eat Brain Cakes just like us.
Mrs. Hughes: Well I never!
O’Brien: What’s he doing in here anyway?
Carson: He has as much right to sit at this table as you do. It is wartime. We all have to make adjustments, however painful.
Ethel: I’d rather starve.
O’Brien: It can be arranged. Can’t it Thomas?
Thomas: Perhaps. Fancy a smoke?
O’Brien: Thought you’d never ask.
Daisy: Mrs. Patmore, will eating brains make me cleverer?
Mrs. Patmore: Yes Daisy. Yes it will.
