Dr. Giggles (1992) Script

MAN: We've negotiated the outer epidermis and the subcutaneous fat layer.

Notice that the incision runs parallel to the muscle cells.

This is to ensure proper healing.

Continuing With a lateral incision across the myocardium...

...We expose the chordinae tendinae.

As you can see, premature ventricular contraction has set in.

And is followed by full cardiac arrest.

Respiration has bottomed out.

All brain function has ceased.

The patient...

...has expired.

You win some, you lose some.

And now, ladies and gentlemen...

...you are about to experience...

...the cutting edge of medicine.

[WHIRRING]

Let's open this baby up and see What it'll do.

[WHIRRING CONTINUES]

[GIGGLING]

MAN 1 : What is it, doc? DOCTOR: It's patient 1 93.

-Shit, that's Dr. Giggles. -Who?

It's his nickname. Nobody knows his real ID.

Delusional, acute schizophrenic With an IQ somewhere in the stratosphere.

We're talking prodigy.

He thinks he's a--

--doctor.

Jesus, what the hell....

Mm, Dr. Philips.

Dr. Philips, this isn't really the place.

[GASPING]

He should have kept his hands to himself.

Hey, Jen.

[CHUCKLES]

-Ask me why summer's off to a great start. -Why is summer off to a great start?

I called Johnson at lunch. I got a job.

Playing old favorites for the locals at his restaurant every Wednesday.

That's great, Max.

I don't know, my math's pretty shitty...

...but I think that leaves us six nights of the week to engage in unsafe practices.

Heh. You wish.

Why do I detect a disturbing lack of jubilation here?

I mean, maybe you haven't heard, but school's out, you know?

The central government's collapsed. People are free.

I-- I just didn't get much sleep last night, that's all.

Maybe it's time for the famous Max Anderson stress test.

GIRL: I hope you two can breathe through your ears.

Yeah, as long as you don't plug them off.

First time I've ever been accused of talking too much.

-You guys know Where to meet tonight? -Eight o'clock, Breeder's Hill.

A fitting name, don't you think?

You know, We might be a little bit on the tardy side. Heh.

Yeah, We're going on a little expedition.

Expedition? You guys bringing tents?

-No, these guys have a big surprise planned. -Right.

Speaking of big surprises, the twin peaks.

Let's climb.

See you guys later.

BOY: Party down tonight.

[INDISTINCT CHATTER]

COREEN: Hi, guys.

I better get going. I gotta stop by Johnson's and fill out some stuff.

-Okay. -You sure nothing's Wrong?

Yeah. Pick me up at quarter to 8?

Quarter to 8.

MAN: Look up for me.

Now, I Want you to sit up straight.

How's your dad doing? Give me a deep breath.

[EXHALES DEEPLY]

All right. Again.

[EXHALES DEEPLY]

Hmm.

When will you know if you need to, you know....

Replace the valve?

Well, it's way too early to tell.

We'll have to wait and see What we get on the monitor...

-...When you come back next week. -Next week?

Jennifer, don't forget that a mitral valve prolapse...

...is not that serious.

Even if We have to operate, We do them all the time.

I'll try to remember that.

It's more important that you remember to avoid strenuous activity.

No coffee, no tea and especially no alcohol.

It's all in here.

Anne Will show you how to put the monitor on. I'll see you next Week.

Town's got a doctor And his name is Rendell.

Stay away from his house Because he's the doctor from hell.

He choррed up his patients, Every last one And he cut out their hearts Purely for fun.

So just What is this big mystery?

This big mystery?

Remember the facts of the case.

The citizens of Moorehigh surrounded the house, broke in...

...and they dragged the town doctor into the streets.

-And they stoned him to death, right? -That's right.

And then they came in after his son, but he disappeared.

-Never found him. -How did Evan get out of the house?

The suspense is killing me.

Well, some say Dr. Rendell cremated him.

-Some say he ate him. -Oh, sick.

But I think Evan never left the house. I think he's still here.

Alive.

You aren't getting any, so you're wasting your time.

So this guy Was a doctor?

Yeah, Evan Rendell. He Was the town doctor.

He offed seven of his patients.

Cut out their hearts While they Were still alive.

Shit. What Would make a guy crack like that?

His Wife took sick. Heart problems.

He Was trying to save her.

Somewhere along the line old doc just suddenly threw a piston.

The sicker she got, the crazier he got.

One day, folks just started disappearing.

Seems he Was trying to find his wife a new ticker.

Didn't he have a son?

Wasn't his kid involved in helping the father out or something?

Well, the doctor says it isn't very serious at all.

But depending on What this piece of junk says...

...they might have to operate to fix the valve.

Operate?

Yeah.

They're telling me it's a routine operation.

Why didn't you tell me about this before?

I didn't want you to feel sorry for me.

Shit, Jen, you know, I'm your boyfriend.

We're supposed to face things like this together. Remember, you and me?

I love you.

There's something else.

It's about my mom.

I never told you the Way she died.

She went into the hospital for a routine operation.

I never saw her again.

I had nightmares for the longest time...

...and after a While, they Went away.

But now they're back.

There's one doctor in this town. I've known him since he was your age.

MAX: He looked like a doctor, I don't know what he was.

Maybe he just thinks he's a doctor.

Maybe he wanted to be a doctor and never got the chance.

How's that?

I know this is gonna sound crazy...

...but has anyone here considered this guy might be Dr. Rendell's son?

Not anyone who is serious about keeping his job.

Why don't you go back and take 1 0? I'll call you when your parents get here.

I don't have to promise you doodly squat.

-They were having too much fun. -You saying they both imagined it?

She's stable, but I wanna take her to the office, put her on the EKG.

CHIEF: Sure thing.

Oh, and if you see any of your fellow marauding doctors out there...

-...you'll let us know. REITZ: Why the EKG?

CHAMBERLAIN: She has a heart condition.

Could become serious.

Dr. Rendell's wife died of a heart problem.

So did my mama, daddy and grandpa.

How did we get back into Dr. Rendell?

Hold it in, chief. My new partner here just got a little bump on the head.

That has nothing to do with it and you know it.

-Nor does Dr. Rendell. CHIEF: That's enough.

-Look-- -I said that's enough...

...or you'll be handing out parking tickets.

Listen, these kids are pulling your chain. Relax.

Oh, why don't you go and see if you can catch the girl's father?

I'll leave a message in case he beats you there.

-Sure thing, chief. -Reitz, station duty.

And next time, wear your seatbelt a little tighter.

Magruder.

REITZ: Magruder.

You smelled something in the Rendell house, didn't you?

MAGRUDER: I didn't smell nothing. -You saw that girl.

She was fucking scared to death.

MAGRUDER: That little girl probably just had too much to drink.

It happens to the best of us.

And what about the boy, huh? Did he have too much to drink?

-Let go of me. -Not until you level with me.

I'm going to level you if you don't let go.

Do what you feel, but it might be easier to just tell me what you're hiding.

Is it Rendell's son?

I'm sorry.

[SIGHS]

I haven't opened this bottle for 35 years.

I haven't had a drink in all that time either.

How come?

[SIGHS]

I'm your partner, man. Tell me.

It was 1 957.

The night after they found all the bodies.

All the other officers were gone.

MAGRUDER: The mob had already offed Dr. Rendell...

...but the search was still on for Evan Jr.

We'd moved all of Rendell's victims out of the house...

...and I was left alone to watch over the bodies.

I don't need to tell you, I was рlenty sрooked.

Thank God for Mr. Moon Glo.

That was how Dr. Rendell got his son out of the house.

He'd sewn him uр in what was left of his wife's corрse.

Ahh.

[GIGGLING]

[THUD]

MAGRUDER: And when I came to, little Evan was gone.

Everything's clean.

It was like it never happened.

Evan's mom was even sewed back up.

Jesus, this is a major league fucked-up town.

Why haven't you told anyone?

Who'd believe a 20-year-old kid under too much pressure...

...and too much Moon Glo?

Our town has a doctor And his name is Rendell.

Stay away from his house, He's a doctor from hell.

Choррed uр his рatients, Every last one.

And cut out their hearts Purely for fun.

So if you're from Moorehigh And you should get sick.

You try to relax.

WOMAN [OVER PA]: Unit 1 3....

-Is Jennifer okay? -Yeah, she's with the doctor.

-The doctor? -Dr. Chamberlain, the girl's okay.

You believe us, don't you?

Why you grabbing me?

Don't you?

Let's just say I’m getting there. Grab a seat.

What are you doing?

Just how long are you gonna sit there?

As long as it takes.

We're scanning every felony in a radius of--

Why the fuck am I telling you? Tss.

This guy's out there, Reitz, I saw him. He's out there.

You may be right.

REITZ: Tarawood.

Escaped from Tarawood State Hospital two weeks ago.

A 42-year old male schizophrenic.

Killed three hospital personnel.

ID unknown, orphaned at age 7.

He's 40. That means born in 1 952...

...and orphaned in 1 959.

What does all this mean?

I doubt I could convince anyone else, but I'm taking another look at that house.

-I'm going. -Like hell you are.

Sit down and wait for your parents.

Like hell I’m not.

Hello. Is this Chief Harper?

This is Joe Campbell, Jennifer's father.

Dr. Chamberlain!

You're supposed to be relaxing.

The machine.

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

I'm sorry, Jennifer. I'm afraid we have to go in.

Dr. Chamberlain, what are you doing?

Don't worry, Jennifer.

It's just a routine operation.

CHAMBERLAIN: Jennifer, Jennifer. Whoa, whoa, whoa.

It's Dr. Chamberlain.

You're in my office, everything's fine, you had a nightmare.

Come on, sit up.

Take a deep breath.

You all right?

Let me just check the readout, okay?

[MACHINE BEEPING STEADILY]

Well, up until just now, things looked pretty good.

Wave patterns seem to be just about where they should be.

I think you're gonna be fine.

[STABBING SOUND, CHAMBERLAIN GRUNTS]

If I were you, I'd get a second opinion.

That is very unprofessional of you, doctor.

How about a free examination?

There will be no medication, just a single jolt of electricity.

It's a necessary step.
