Nobody in, nobody out.

- Yes, and no exceptions.

- No one, sir.


- Open the door.

- Nobody in, nobody out.

You fool, it's me, open the door.

Nobody in, nobody out.

- I'll have you put in jail for this.

- Nobody in, nobody out.


- May I?

- Thank you.


it's midnight, time to unmask.

If you wish it.

Juliet, you are lovely.

Thank you.

I'm afraid you're going to be frightfully

disappointed when you

behold your Romeo, though.

I can't be disappointed.

- Why do you say that?

- Because I know exactly what you look like,

your imperial highness.

- Who are you?

- Your servant, your imperial highness.

What is the meaning

of this?

I regret I'm not at liberty to

give any information whatsoever.

It was very easy.

- You won't need me any longer?

- No, my dear.

- There'll be no violence?

- That rests with the gentleman.

Let's have him in here.

Might I ask the meaning of this?

You'll be good enough to write a letter

to his majesty the czar at our dictation.


And might I ask who it is that

makes this extraordinary request?

I'm afraid your highness doesn't

quite realize the situation.

You're not only a prisoner, sir,

but you must submit to any

demands we make upon you.

- Why, that's blackmail.

- No, your highness.

Something rather more important.

Will your highness be kind enough to

sit down there and write what we request?

What do you want me to do?

I suppose I'm to write my imperial

father and ask him to send you

a few hundred thousand rubles

in order to obtain my release.

I'm afraid your highness misjudges us.

If you'll allow me...

Well, then,

what is it?

I'll read you a copy of the

letter we require you to write.

"Your imperial majesty or my dear father,"

whichever you choose.
