Downton Abbey Season 3 Quiz Part II

See how well you recall some of these events

1. Carson catches the two young footmen larking about when the family is away in Scotland. What are they doing?
Smoking Lord Grantham's cigars
Sprawling in the family's armchairs
Teasing the dog, Isis
Practicing cricket for the next match

2. A very large painting of a man on horseback appears behind Lord Grantham in the dining room scenes. Who is this person? Art appreciation kudos if you know who it's by.
The Earl of Carnarvon
James I of Scotland
King Charles I
The Duke of Argyll
King Charles I by Anthony Van Dyck, 1635 (there are two more Van Dycks in the dining room as well).

3. Who says the following line in the last episode of Season 3: "My whole childhood would seem impossible to you milady. But I survived and so will you."
Bates says this to Rose, who is struggling with her relationship with her mother (Shrimpy's wife, Susan).

4. Which character is called a "young Lochinvar" by Cora's mother?
Cousin Shrimpy
("Tell me, what do you think of young Lochinvar who has so ably carried off our granddaughter and our money?") Speaking to Violet, Mrs Levinson alludes to the romantic poem by Sir Walter Scott in which the Scottish knight elopes with Ellen Graeme of Netherby Hall.

5. What is a traditional "Ghillies’ Ball" in Scotland?
A dance at which Scottish gamekeepers perform ritualized movements with swords and rifles
A masquerade ball in which servants and masters exchange roles and costumes.
A festivity at which servants and masters mingle and perform traditional dances.
Although it is true that Ghillies are gamekeepers, the Ghillies’ Ball involves all of an estate's gentry and servants. The most famous one of modern times is held by Queen Elizabeth and The Duke of Edinburgh during their summer stay at Balmoral Castle. The Queen and her husband (who wears a kilt) traditionally begin the evening by dancing an "eightsome reel" with six other couples.
