The final season of “Downton Abbey” is premiering in just over a month on PBS. To celebrate, let’s take a look back at the best fights had ’round the dinner table in the award-winning period drama.

“Dining room scenes — they can go on a whole day. There can be 22 people sitting ’round the table and everyone has to have re-lighting,” says Penelope Wilton. “The food that’s put in front of you at 8 o’clock in the morning looks quite appetizing. By 8 o’clock in the evening, makes you feel quite nauseous.”

Hugh Bonneville adds, “I’ve spent something like five months non-stop in the dining room, if you add all the scenes together.”

Plus, the montage lets everyone re-live one of Maggie Smith’s classic lines: “W-what is a week-end?”

The final season of “Downton Abbey” premieres Sunday, Jan. 3 on PBS.
