the fact that there are 1 to 2 things left for me to do on this earth. I must stay alive.
Jason and his Doctor are discussing how much time Jason has left to live. Jason is expecting family to show up soon.
It can come any time now., but the fact you're still here is a tribute to inner strength
Oh, how awful, but we've been expecting it, haven't we?
Jason's family shows up as his doctor is leaving. Jason's daughter speaks to the doctor and introduces her children to him
Emily, your father is extremely ill. There is only a matter of days, maybe hours
Jason wakes up and subtly criticizes everyone and how they are. Jason talks about his plans for them for the evening. He mentions that he has masks for all of them to wear.
We're going to have a party here, Paula. We're going to have a marvelous time and I've arranged for all of us to wear masks.
Masks! I swear you people don't just celebrate the mardi gras, you succumb to it!
You'll all inherit everything I own, but only if you wear the masks until midnight.
After they have dinner they go back to the study and Jason tells everyone about the masks. He assigns everyone a mask and then addresses the fortune he'll be leaving behind.
Everyone put their masks on and started complaining after some hours had passed. They begged to be allowed to take the masks off. Before he lets them take off the masks he tells them what their real characters are
This is the worst!
I can't stand this on my face another minute!
Jason dies and they finally take their masks off and see that their faces have turned into the faces of their masks. Now they all "wear the faces of what was inside of them."
