Pu Yi - 8 Years:
I do not understand. I do not understand.
Lady Aisin-Gioro: Your majesty is a big boy now. He cannot have a wet nurse anymore. It is much better like this. Much healthier.
Pu Yi - 8 Years: But she is not just my wet nurse. She is my butterfly.
When Johnston and Pu Yi say "farewell" to each other and as the musicians appear and follow Johnston, reflections are visible in such a way that indicate that the scene was actually shot through the glass of a pre-existing structure. The reflections are not consistent with anything else in the shot.
