When she waddles up the bank she painfully resembles a different kind of bird, n'est-ce-pas?
Princess Alexandra: A goose.
Prince Albert: I'm afraid so. And there she must stay, out on the lake: silent, white, majestic. Be a bird, but never fly. Know one song, but never sing it until the moment of death. And so it must be for you, Alexandra: cool indifference to the staring crowds along the bank. And the song? Never.
