The Remains of the Day

Stevens (Anthony Hopkins) and Ms. Kenton (Emma Thompson) meet again. They talk about what they've been doing lately and Lord Darlington. Stevens mentions how in his later years, Lord Darlington was often depressed and wanted to not be seen as a Nazi sympathizer and traitor. Ms. Kenton informs Stevens that she won't go back to working at Darlington Hall because she wants to stay close to her daughter who is pregnant. Stevens and Ms. Kenton say good-bye and he continues working at Darlington Hall for Mr. Lewis (Christopher Reeve).


Continuity mistake: The last shot, when the camera pans away from the front door of the house, appears to be taken from a helicopter, and a modern 1990's white car can be seen parked behind the property in a courtyard. The shot was meant to be at the end of the 1950s. There's also a motorway in the background with lots of fast moving traffic.

Stevens: I'm sorry sir, but I am unable to be of assistance in this matter.
