England, 1914 . . .
LORD GRANTHAM: Something seems a bit off with the new footman, wouldn’t you say, my dear?
ZOMBIE: RRRGH! AARR!
LADY GRANTHAM: My word. Mr. Bates, look out!
MR. BATES: Perfectly all right, thank you. Don’t concern yourself.
LADY GRANTHAM: Thomas, go help Mr. Bates.
THOMAS: Begging your pardon, your ladyship, I’ll not be helping the likes of him if he’s been bit.
LORD GRANTHAM: He hasn’t been bitten yet. Bates, good chap, use your cane!
MR. BATES: Very good, m’lord. (WHACK! WHACK!)
LORD GRANTHAM: In the HEAD, man! At once!
MR. BATES: (WHACK! WHACK! CRACK!)
ZOMBIE: Uuuurghh . . . (THUMP)
(They all stare.)
CARSON: My lord, would it be acceptable to barricade the staff in the kitchen?
LORD GRANTHAM: Perfectly acceptable, Carson. Meantime, shall we all retire to the drawing room?
Your vote: who would be the first to go?
