«But you never remove your mask. Do you?»

JOHANN FRIEDRICH STRUENSEE: Your majesty.
CAROLINE MATHILDE: You recognized me.
JOHANN FRIEDRICH STRUENSEE: I would recognize you blindfolded.
CAROLINE MATHILDE: But your costume is not very imaginative.
JOHANN FRIEDRICH STRUENSEE: I’m afraid I’m not very good at the masquerade.
CAROLINE MATHILDE: I believe this is the one night when everyone can be themselves. [pause] But you never remove your mask. Do you?
