"EINSTEIN ALSO BELIEVED

"THAT SOME CHRONICSCHIZOPHRENICS WERE MISDIAGNOSED

"DUE TO POSSIBLE PSYCHOKINETIC CONDITIONS SUCH AS THEIR ABILITY TO SEEPARANORMAL ACTIVITIES."

NOT A VERY PLEASANT WAY OF RECEIVING MENTAL HEALTHTREATMENT, IS IT, MR. STEVENS?

DR. FRANKS.

I RECEIVED YOUR ACADEMIC RECORDS FROM THE UNIVERSITY.

A 4.0 AVERAGE. MY, MY.

IT SEEMS LIKE YOU MAY HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO FOLLOW IN YOUR GRANDFATHER'S FOOTSTEPS.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.I HOPE SO.

[DOOR OPENS]

AND MY INTERNSHIP HERE ISALL I NEED TO GET MY DEGREE.

THEN WHAT?

WELL, TO...

TAKE RESIDENCE INA MENTAL HEALTH FACILITY AS A COUNSELOR.

I SUPPOSE THAT GOES WITHOUT SAYING.

WHAT'S GOING ON WITH THESE? PUT THEM IN A CUP, POLLY.

OH, I'M SORRY, DR. FRANKS.

MY MINOR, SIR,IS IN ADMINISTRATIONS.

ULTIMATELY,WHAT I'D LOVE TO DO IS WORK IN A PLACELIKE CUNNINGHAM HALL, MAYBE HELP DESIGNAN UPDATED CURRICULUM.

I HOPE YOU DON'T MIND.I DID SOME RESEARCH ON THE BUILDING AND ITSOPERATING PROCEDURES, AND I MADEA COUPLE NOTES--

JUST LITTLE CHANGES,THINGS THAT I THOUGHT WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO IMPLEMENTDURING MY STAY HERE.

MR. STEVENS, I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT IT IS YOU'VE GOTTEN YOURSELF INTO HERE.

I'M SORRY?

THIS ISN'T A SUMMER CAMP.

WE HAVE NEITHER THE FUNDING OR THE TIME TO TALK ABOUT ANYTHING BUT PATIENT MAINTENANCE.

I ABSOLUTELY UNDERSTAND THAT THAT HAS TO BETHE MAIN PRIORITY, BUT--

IF YOU WANT TO VOLUNTEER TO EMPTY A FEW BEDPANS TO MAKE YOUR FINAL GRADES BETTER, GREAT.

BUT YOU ARE NOT SITTING IN A CLASSROOM, READING ABOUT WHAT LIFE IS LIKE IN A MENTAL INSTITUTE. YOU'VE ARRIVED.

I DIDN'T MEANANY DISRESPECT.

I JUST THOUGHT THAT--

LET ME BE BLUNT.

YOU'RE NOT HERE TO THINK.

IF YOU WANT TO SERVE AS A MEMBER OF MY STAFF, THEN I EXPECT YOU TO STAY FOCUSED ON THE MAIN OBJECTIVE.

AND THAT IS?

HOUSING AND MAINTENANCE OF THE MENTALLY ILL.

MAKE NO MISTAKE...

THERE ARE VERY SERIOUS REASONS WHY A PERSON WOULD BE LOCKED UP IN HERE.

[DOOR OPENS]

Man: WHERE ISTHIS WONDER BOY THAT I HAVE HEARDSO MUCH ABOUT?

DR. MORTON, DR. DOUGLAS.

CLARK STEVENS.

NICE TO MEET YOU. PLEASURE.

IT IS YOU. I'D RECOGNIZEYOU ANYWHERE.

I FIRST METYOUR GRANDFATHER AT THE CHICAGOCONFERENCE OF MENTAL HEALTHSCIENCES IN '75.

HE AND I WENT ONSUCH A BENDER--

I WAS JUST DISCUSSING OUR OPERATING PROCEDURES WITH MR. STEVENS.

I THINK WE'VE COME TO AN UNDERSTANDING.

WHY DON'T YOU TWO INTRODUCE HIM TO SARA.

THEN SHE CAN GIVE HIMTHE GRAND TOUR OF THE FACILITY.

I LIKE TO GIVEMY FAVORITES A LITTLE EXTRA.

YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN YOU MIGHT NEED A LITTLE FAVOR.

NOTED.

SO YOU SURVIVED THE FRANKS INTERVIEW.

YES. JUST BARELY.

WELL, SOME SAY IT'S THE WORST FORM OF SHOCK TREATMENT THE HOSPITAL OFFERS.

I CAN'T ARGUEWITH THAT.

FOR WHATEVER IT'S WORTH, I KNOW HE'S KIND OF A SHARK, BUT BOTTOM LINE IS, IF YOU WORK HARD, HE'LL EVENTUALLY HIRE YOU FULL-TIME.

THAT'S WHAT HE DID WITH ME.

YEAH. I WOULD JUSTIDEALLY LOVE TO HELP CHANGETHIS PLACE, YOU KNOW, IMPROVE ITA LITTLE BIT.

HA HA HA. YEAH. THAT'S WHAT WE ALL SAY, UP UNTIL ABOUT THE THIRD TIME YOU'RE STABBED WITH A NUMBER-TWO PENCIL.

[BOY WHISPERING]

HEY, KID, COME ON.

THIS ISN'T A GOOD PLACE TO BE.YOU COULD GET...

SAFETY ALARMAT THE END OF THE HALLWAY.

HELLO.

UH!

[WOMAN SCREAMING]


HELLO.

JESUS!

THERE'S NO ONE IN THERE.

SO, DR. MORTON,HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED HERE?

I'VE WORKED HEREFOR 27 YEARS.

THAT'S A LONG TIME.

WHOO. YOU HAVENO IDEA.

SO, WHAT WERE YOU DOINGDOWN THERE AFTER HOURS?

OH, I FOLLOWED THE LITTLE BOY--

THE KID I KEEP SEEING RUNNING AROUND HERE.

HE BROKE INTO MY ROOM EARLIER.

I JUST CHASED HIM DOWN TO SEE WHO HE WAS.

IT'S A LITTLE STRANGE THAT HE RUNS AROUND HERE AT NIGHT.

I GUESS THE WHOLE PLACE IS A LITTLE STRANGE.

OCCUPATIONAL HAZARD.

I GUESS SO.

HEY...THAT NOISE I KEEP HEARING--

WHAT IS THAT?

I MEAN, IT SOUNDS LIKE IT COMES FROM DOWN IN THE BASEMENT, AND I FIGURED IT WAS THE WATER PIPES.

MAYBE.

WELL...WHAT IS IT?

IT'S AN OLD BUILDING.

IT COULD BEA VARIETY OF THINGS.

BUT?

BUILDINGSARE LIKE PEOPLE.

THEY REMEMBEREVERYTHING THAT'S HAPPENED TO THEMTHROUGHOUT TIME.

SOMETIMES...

THEY DON'T LIKEWHAT THEY REMEMBER.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

A WHILE BACK...

WE HAD A PATIENTDOWN IN CELL 44.

HE WAS THE SADDEST,SICKEST SUBJECT I'VE EVER COME ACROSS.

ONE NIGHT,HE DUG HIMSELF OUT, BUT HE GOT TURNED AROUNDAND COULDN'T FIND HIS WAY.

AND WHAT HAPPENED?

HE JUMPED OUTA THIRD-STORY WINDOW.

DID HE DIE?

SOME SAY HE DIEDWHEN HE HIT THE GROUND.

SOME SAY THEY CAUGHT HIMAND LOCKED HIM BACK UP.

BUT I...

I BELIEVEHE'S STILL HERE...

DESPERATELY TRYING TO DIGHIS WAY OUT AND GO HOME.

DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE THAT?

EITHER THAT, OR HECAME BACK TO RUN THIS PLACE.

MR. STEVENS, I HAVE A WETCLEANUP IN THE TELEVISION ROOM.

IF YOU'RE NOT TOO BUSY, PERHAPS YOU COULD...

MOP IT UP?

SURE.

SNEAKING AROUND, LEAVING MAXIMUM SECURITY OPEN.

IT LOOKS LIKE YOU'VE HAD QUITE A FIRST NIGHT, MR. STEVENS.

I WASN'TSNEAKING AROUND.

SPEAK TO ME.

I HEARD NURSE HENDRICKSCALL FOR HELP OVER THE RADIO, AND I CAME TO SEEIF I COULD LEND A HAND.

AND?

AND I GOT DOWNTO THE REC ROOM AND REALIZED THAT SHECLEARLY DIDN'T NEED MY HELP, BEING THAT SHE WAS BUSY USING A TASERON ONE OF THE PATIENTS.

SOME OF THE PATIENTS HOUSED HERE HAVE TO BE CONSTANTLY REMINDED WHO HAS THE UPPER HAND.

YES, BUT IHARDLY THINK THAT REFUSING TO TAKEYOUR MEDICATION WARRANTSAN ELECTRICAL BURN.

STEVENS--

THIS PLACE IS A MESS.IT'S DIRTY.

IT'S UNSAFE.IT'S UNDERSTAFFED.

ARE YOU AWARETHAT THERE ARE CHILDREN RUNNING AROUND HEREAT NIGHT?

NO ONE GETS IN OR OUT OF THIS BUILDING WITHOUT MY AUTHORIZATION.

WHAT ABOUT THE PATIENTWHO ESCAPED FROM THE BASEMENT?

DR. MORTONTOLD ME ABOUT...

A PATIENT WHO ESCAPEDFROM THE BASEMENT.

DR. MORTON DOESN'T KNOW WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT.

LOOK...LET'S START OVER AGAIN, ALL RIGHT?

WHILE IT'S NO SECRET THIS PLACE COULD USE A LITTLE FIXING UP, MOST OF THE PATIENTS HOUSED HERE ARE CONTENT.

YOU KNOW WHY?

THEY HAVE NO PLACE ELSE TO GO.

I'LL MAKE YOU A DEAL.

YOU STICK TO THE RULES, MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS, AND I'LL CONSIDER SOME OF THE SUGGESTIONS YOU PUT TOGETHER.

ARE WE IN AGREEMENT,MR. STEVENS?

FINE.

WELL, HELLO THERE, BUSY BEE.

GOOD MORNING.

Hendricks: WHAT EXACTLYARE YOU TRYING TO PULL HERE?

Franks: I DON'T HAVE ANY IDEAWHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.

Hendricks: I'M TELLING YOU, ALBERT, THINGS ARE GOING TO CHANGE AROUND HERE, OR I'M PLACING A CALL TO THE BOARD!

I KNOW WHAT YOU ARE UP TO.

Franks: I DON'T HAVE ANY IDEAWHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.

Hendricks: OH, YES, YOU DO.

HEY, NEW GUY.

OH. HEY THERE.WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

I'M ON MY WAY BACKTO MY ROOM.

HEY, LISTEN. DO YOU WANT TO SIT IN ON AN OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE GROUP AT, LIKE, 3:30?

IT'S KIND OF MY OWN LITTLE SESSION.

IT SOUNDS GREAT,REALLY, BUT...

I DON'T WANT TO GETINTO ANY MORE HOT WATER.

WHY? WHAT'S WRONG?

NOTHING.

I WAS JUSTIN FRANKS' OFFICE, AND I SAW SOMETHINGKIND OF WEIRD.

YEAH?

HE HAS A LOTOF WEIRD BOOKS, AND ONE IN PARTICULARON HIS DESK, HE PUT IT AWAY WHEN HEREALIZED I SAW IT.

ARE YOU SURE THAT YOU'RE NOT A...

PRIVATE DETECTIVE DISGUISED AS AN INTERN?

I'M A DORK.

YOU'RE A DORK. HA HA.

SO THE GUY READS WEIRD BOOKS.

I DON'T KNOW. MAYBE HE'S TRYING TO LEARN MORE ABOUT HIS BEDSIDE MANNER.

Hendricks on radio: SARATO THE NURSES STATION, PLEASE.

COPY.

GOT TO GO.

GOOD LUCK.

GOOD NIGHT, NURSE HENDRICKS.

[HUMMING]

EVERYONE IN BED?

ALL TUCKED IN.

LISTEN, I'MALMOST DONE HERE.

IF YOU DON'T NEEDANYTHING ELSE, I THINK I'MGONNA GO LAY DOWN.

MM-HMM.

[MAN SHOUTS]

I'LL CHECK IT OUT.

IS THERE SOMETHINGWE CAN HELP YOU WITH?

[BANG]

IT'S BEDTIME.

[DOOR CREAKS]

[TASER FIRING]

I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR FOOLISHNESS.

NOW COME OUT AND SHOW YOURSELF.

I REALLY DON'T HAVE TIME TO WASTE.

AND I DON'T WANT TO HURT YOU.

[BUMP]

WHO ARE YOU?

[DISTORTED VOICE]

[EXHALES]

YOU ARE ONLY HURTING YOURSELF.

[ELECTRICAL BUZZING]

WELL, I SUPPOSE IF YOU AREN'TGOING TO COME OUT, YOU'LL JUST HAVE TO MAKE YOURSELF COZY UNTIL DRAKE ARRIVES. I'M SURE HE'LL FIND A WAY TO CONVINCE YOU TO GO BACK TO YOUR ROOM.

NO!

[ROCK MUSIC PLAYING LOUDLY]

AAH!

STOP.

WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS?

PLEASE...STOP!

[MUSIC STOPS]

[DISTORTED VOICES WHISPERING]

[LAUGHING SOFTLY]


Franks: I KNOW YOU'RE ALLDEVASTATED BY WHAT HAPPENED.

I WANT TO KNOWWHICH OF THE PATIENTS DID THIS, AND I WANT TO KNOW BY TONIGHT.

BETTY WILL ASSIGN EACH OF YOU A SECTION, AND I WANT YOU TO THOROUGHLYINTERVIEW THE RESIDENTS.

THEY TRUST YOU.I WANT YOU TO USE THAT TRUST.

KEEP THE AUTHORITIES OUT.

OTHERWISE, THE PATIENTS WILLSHUT DOWN AND GIVE YOU NOTHING.

AFTER THAT, WE WILL THOROUGHLY REVIEW THE SECURITY AND SAFETY PROTOCOL.

LET'S GET GOING.

I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS HAPPENED.

I WORKED WITH HER FOR 25 YEARS.

SHE WAS SUCH A NICE LADY.

Franks on radio: BETTY, DO YOU READ ME?

JUST A SECOND.

GET DR. SHORES,TAKE THE WEST WING.

EVERYTHING'S OK.

DR. DOUGLAS SAID THAT SHE WAS WITH YOU RIGHT BEFORE IT HAPPENED.

DID YOU SEE ANYONE?

WE HEARD SOMEONE IN THE HALLWAY, AND THEN SHE WENT TO CHECK IT OUT.

AND THEN I HEARD THIS LOUD MUSIC, AND I, UH...

AND THEY THINK ONEOF THE PATIENTS DID IT?

Betty: CLARK, YOU AND DRAKEARE IN THE BASEMENT.

DON'T BE AFRAID, CLARKIE.I'LL PROTECT YOU.

ALL RIGHT. I HAVE TO GO.

YEAH. SURE.

WE DIDN'T SEEANYTHING.

WE WERE SLEEPING.

AND AS YOU CAN SEE,OUR DOOR IS LOCKED.

TIGHT AS A DRUM. ARE YOU DATING SARA?

ALL RIGHT. IF YOU REMEMBER ANYTHING, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

[INDISTINCT VOICE]

Drake: I'LL MAKE SURE YOU ROT IN THERE FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.

WHAT'S WRONG?

I'M GONNA TEACH THIS FREAK TO SHOW SOME RESPECT.

WHY DON'T YOU TAKE A BREAK?I'M ALMOST DONE HERE.

I'LL BE OUT IN A MINUTE.

OOH, YEAH.

WHY DON'T YOU COME INSIDE, AND I'LL MAKE US A COUPLE OF REMY MARTINS.

HEY!

IT'S ALWAYS THE ONES WHO PROTEST TOO MUCH THAT END UP WEARING THEIR WIVES' PANTIES!

[SPITS]

NO.


HELLO.

HELLO.

WHY WON'T YOU TALK TO ME?

IT MIGHT HELP YOU SORT SOME THINGS OUT.

Man: HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE CONVINCEDTHAT SOMETHING IS THERE WHEN LOGIC TELLS YOUIT'S NOT?

I THOUGHT I WAS BEGINNING TO HEAR THINGS.

NOW YOU KNOWWHAT MADNESS FEELS LIKE.

THAT'S A FEELINGYOU'LL NEVER FORGET.

WHY ARE YOU SITTING OVER THERE IN THE DARK?

ILLUMINATION ONLY REMINDS MEOF WHAT I'VE BECOME.

WHAT'S YOUR NAME?

THAT'S A SUBJECTIVEQUESTION.

THERE WAS A PROBLEM DOWN HERE LAST NIGHT.

SO WE'RE TAKING A LITTLE TIMEWITH EACH RESIDENT, ASKING THEM IF THEY HEARD OR SAW ANYTHING UNUSUAL.

HA HA HA. FUNNY THATYOU'D ASK A MADMAN IF HE'S SEENANYTHING UNUSUAL.

ALL RIGHT. WELL, THANK YOU.

PRETTY STRANGE PLACE,THIS CUNNINGHAM HALL.

HOW SO?

BAD THINGSGO ON DOWN HERE, BUT YOU ALREADYKNOW THAT.

WHAT KIND OF BAD THINGS?

TAKE THAT VERY SICKINDIVIDUAL YOU HAVE LURKINGAROUND, FOR INSTANCE--

SOMEONE WHO'S COMFORTED BY THE WARMTHOF FRESH BLOOD.

WHO DO YOU THINK IT IS?

YOU'RE A SMART BOY.YOU'LL FIGURE IT OUT.

IS IT YOU?

I SUPPOSE THE TOPOF THE FOOD CHAIN WOULD BE A GOOD PLACETO START LOOKING.

ARE YOU SPEAKING OF DR. FRANKS?

HELLO.

THEY'RE JUST CELL NUMBERSON A PRESCRIPTION TO ME.

YOU'D HAVE TO GOTO BETTY OR WALLACE TO FIND OUTWHO THE HELL THEY ARE.

BESIDES, THEY WOULDN'TKNOW THEIR OWN NAMES, EVEN IF YOU ASKED THEM.

OK. WELL, CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT THE PATIENT IN CELL 44 HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH?

I JUST KEEP THEMDOPED UP, KID.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT MEDICATION HE'S ON?

BOY, YOU SURE HAVEA LOT OF QUESTIONS.

RISPERDEX. THAT'S WHATTHEY'RE ALL ON DOWN THERE.

AN ANTIDEPRESSANT?

HAVE YOU EVERSEEN THE PLACE?

THANK YOU, GRACE.

Sara: YOU KNOW,YOU'RE BREAKING RULE NUMBER ONE ABOUT WORKING IN A PLACE LIKE THIS.

Clark: WHAT'S THAT?

TAKING WHAT THE PATIENTSSAY TOO SERIOUSLY.

I'M NOT.

BELIEVE ME, I'M NOT.

LOOK, I DID HEAR HENDRICKS AND FRANKS ARGUING THE NIGHT SHE GOT KILLED.

CLARK, YOUHAVE TO UNDERSTAND THAT THESE PATIENTSARE TOTALLY DELUSIONAL.

THEY'LL TELL YOU THINGS, THINGS THEY ACTUALLYBELIEVE TO BE TRUE.

BUT HARD-CORE SCHIZOPHRENICS,IN PARTICULAR, CAN'T BE TRUSTED,YOU KNOW.

YOU HAVE TO TAKEWHAT THEY SAY WITH A GRAINOF SALT.

I UNDERSTAND THAT.

IT JUST SEEMED WEIRD.

HE WAS BEING REALLY CRYPTIC.

LOOK...THEY'RE PARANOID.

I'M SURE THEY HAVE ITOUT FOR FRANKS BECAUSE HE'S THE ONEKEEPING THEM LOCKED IN HERE.

I THINK YOU'REREADING TOO MUCH INTO THIS CONVERSATION.

YOU CAN NEVER REALLYTRUST A SCHIZO.

ALL RIGHT.

WHY ARE ALL THE PATIENTS IN THE BASEMENT ON THE SAME MEDICATION?

BECAUSE I'M SURE THEY'RE KEEPING THEMSERIOUSLY TRANQUILIZED.

I USED TO LOVE TO PLAYOUTSIDE THIS TIME OF DAY.

ME AND MY FRIENDS,WE'D PLAY KICK-THE-CAN...

SOMETIMES DODGE BALL.

I WASN'T REALLYGOOD AT THAT ONE.

TOO AFRAID OF GETTING HITBY THE BALL, I GUESS.

AND ONE DAY, THINGSJUST STARTED TO GO BAD.

HOW SO?

I STARTED SEEING STUFF...

KNOWING STUFFBEFORE IT HAPPENED.

ONE DAY MY PARENTSDROPPED ME OFF HERE TO HAVE SOME TESTSRUN, AND...

THEY NEVER CAME BACK.

THAT'S A REALLY ROUGH THING TO CARRY AROUND WITH YOU.

I DON'T KNOW.

YOU CAN TRY YOUR BESTTO STEER LIFE IN THE DIRECTIONYOU WANT IT TO GO IN, BUT...

EVERYTHING PRETTY MUCHHAPPENS AS IT'S MEANT TO BE.

MAYBE SO.

YOU KNOW WHAT I THINK?

I THINK YOU'RE NOT MEANT TO BE HERE ANYMORE.

YOU'RE RIGHT.

BUT THE DAYI LEAVE HERE WILL BE THE DAYTHAT I'M DEAD.

SEE, THAT'S...THAT'S ONE OF THE BAD THINGS ABOUT KNOWING STUFFBEFORE IT HAPPENS.

MY LITTLE PROBLEM...

STEMS FROM THE FACT...

THAT I WAS NEVER ALLOWED TO GET IN TOUCH WITH MY INNER CHILD.

I'M A VULNERABLE CHILD TRAPPED INSIDE AN ADULT'S BODY.

AND WEARINGAN ADULT DIAPER.

[LAUGHTER]

UP YOURS, JIMMY!

OK, OK. CALM DOWN.

LOOK, WE'RE ALL GRIEVING RIGHT NOW, AND SOME OF US FEEL VULNERABLE...

OR DEPRESSED.

OR SCARED.

THAT'S RIGHT, ALICE.

WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL SCARED?

IT WON'T STOPSCARING ME.

WHAT WON'T?

I TRY TO CLOSE MY EYESAND MAKE IT GO AWAY, BUT IT'S ALWAYSRIGHT THERE, WATCHING ME.

WHAT IS THIS "IT" THAT YOU'REREFERRING TO, ALICE?

A GHOST.

WHAT GHOST?

THE ONE THAT RUNSTHROUGH THE HOUSE AT NIGHT.

IT'S ALWAYS WATCHING METHROUGH THE WINDOWS.

WHAT DO YOU THINK IT WANTS FROM YOU?

TO MAKE SURETHAT I NEVER FORGET WHAT MADNESS FEELS LIKE.

[WOMAN MOANING]

[BANGING]


[DRAKE LAUGHING]

[TELEPHONE RINGING]

I'VE STILL GOT ONE MORE PATIENT THAT I'D LOVE TO TALK TO DOWN THERE, BUT...PRETTY MUCH, IT SEEMS LIKE THEY WERE ALL IN THEIR CELLS.

DRAKE CHECKED THE LOCKS, AND IT DIDN'T APPEAR THAT ANY OF THEM COULD GET OUT.

OH, OK. WELL, PLEASEJUST KEEP ME POSTED, BECAUSE I'M GONNA HAVE TOTYPE UP THE FINDINGS AND GIVE THEM TOTHE INVESTIGATOR IN CHARGE.

OK. FANTASTIC.

Man: SO NICE OF YOU TO COME DOWN.

WE SO SELDOM GET VISITORS DOWN HERE IN OUR LITTLE PIT OF DESPAIR.

WHAT DID YOUSTOP TALKING TO ME THE LAST TIMEI WAS DOWN HERE?

I'D RUN OUT OF THINGS TO SAY.

OK. WHY DON'T YOUCOME OUT INTO THE LIGHTWHERE I CAN SEE YOU?

COME ON.WE'RE FRIENDS BY NOW.

LET'S JUST SAY I SUFFERED A SLIGHT DISFIGUREMENT AS A CHILD.

SINCE THEN, I CHOOSE TO LIVE IN THE SHADOWS.

ALL RIGHT, THEN...

CAN YOU GET OUTOF THIS CELL?

[CHUCKLES]

ONLY IF SOMEONE LETS ME.

NO MORE TALKING IN CIRCLES.ANSWER THE QUESTION.

ARE YOU WONDERING IF THAT LITTLE BOY YOU KEEP SEEING AROUND IS SOMEHOW GETTING THE KEYS AND LETTING ME OUT?

WHAT LITTLE BOY?

NOW WHO'S TALKING IN CIRCLES?

Wallace on radio: CLARK, COME IN.

I GOT SARA ON LINE ONE OUT HERE.

I'LL BE RIGHT UP.

WE'LL CONTINUETHIS CONVERSATION LATER?

YOU CAN CALL ME BEN.

[CHUCKLES]

WE HAVE TO STOP MEETING LIKE THIS.

WHAT WILL THE PATIENTS SAY?

I THINK IT'SA LITTLE LATE FOR THAT.

[LAUGHING AND MOCKING]

RIGHT.

SO, DID YOU FINISH UP YOUR INTERVIEWS?

BASICALLY. WHATARE YOU TAKING?

OH, I HAVE A COLD.

I INTERVIEWEDALL THE PATIENTS THAT I WASASSIGNED TO, AND MOST OF THEIR STORIESWERE PRETTY OUT THERE.

MINE, TOO.

MRS. IDELSON TOLD ME THAT THE GUY FROM "WHEEL OF FORTUNE" DID IT.

THAT'S POSSIBLE.

I HAD ONE GUY...HE'S INTERESTING, BUT I DON'T THINKHE KNOWS ANYTHING.

SIC FRANKS ON HIM.

LET THE COPS DO THE REST.

HANG ON. I FORGOT A FORK.

OK.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

I'M SORRY.

THEY WERE STICKING OUTOF YOUR PURSE.

SOME COLD, HUH?

WHY ARE YOU TAKINGRISPERDEX, SARA?

HERE GOES. UM...

WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL, I HAD PROBLEMS FOCUSING AND STUFF.

UM...AND I WAS LATER DIAGNOSED WITH REALLY MINOR SCHIZOPHRENIA.

BUT I GOT PUT ON RISPERDEX, AND IT TOTALLY LEVELED ME OUT.

I MEAN, I HAVEN'T REALLY HAD ANY SYMPTOMS SINCE I WAS A KID.

SO, IS THAT HOWYOU GOT INTERESTED IN MENTAL HEALTH?

MM-HMM.

STILL WANT TO BE MY FRIEND?

SURE.

CRAZY CHICKS ARE WILD.

YOU JERK.

I'M KIDDING.

YOU'REALL RIGHT NOW?

YEAH. YEAH, I'M FINE.

LOOK, JUST DON'T TELL ANYONE, OK?

I WON'T.

THOSE PILLS ARE RED.

SO?

WELL, THE RISPERDEXTHAT GRACE SHOWED ME--

THE PILLS WERE BLUE.

I'M SURE A BUNCH OF PSYCHOS ARE ON A MUCH STRONGER DOSE THAN I AM.

[WOMAN SCREAMING]

THIS IS THE ONLY WAY OUT, SARA!

CARL FINALLY GOT TO GO HOME! HA HA!

[MWAH]

LADIES, GO TO YOUR ROOMS.

[LAUGHTER CONTINUES]

WOULD SOMEBODY PLEASE GETDR. FRANKS ON THE RADIO!

WHAT HAPPENED?

I WAS JUST BRINGING IN THE GAMES, AND WE WERE GONNA PLAY CHUTES 'N' LADDERS, AND THEN THIS.

MAYBE HE HATED CHUTES 'N' LADDERS.

DID YOU SEE HIMTALKING TO ANYONE BEFORE HE CAMEIN HERE?

HE JUST WENT OUT TO GET HIS MEDICATION.

WHAT WAS HE GIVEN?

AN ANTIDEPRESSANT.

[SNIP]

GRACE, WAS CARLJUST HERE?

ABOUT A HALF-HOUR AGO.

DID YOU SEE HIMTALKING TO ANYBODY?

OTHER THAN HIMSELF, NO.

WHAT DID YOUGIVE HIM?

WHAT I ALWAYS DO.

ARE WE GONNA START WITH Q-AND-A AGAIN?

BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR IT.

GRACE--I'M SORRY.WHAT DID YOU GIVE HIM?

I GAVE HIM HIS USUAL DOSE OF HAPPY TABS.

THANK YOU.

BEN!

I HAVEN'T GONEANYWHERE.

YOU SAID SOMETHING EARLIER ABOUT THE MEDICATION THEY GAVE YOU.

DOES IT HELP?

I WOULDN'T KNOW.I DON'T TAKE IT.

BUT I DO HAVE A NICEMOSAIC ON THE WALL THAT I'VE DONEWITH MY UNUSED PILLS.

BEN, WHY DON'T YOU TAKE IT?

THEY WOULDN'THELP ME IF I DID.

WHY NOT?

A HOSPITAL ISA PLACE OF BUSINESS.

WHEN PEOPLE GET BETTER,THERE ARE LESS BODIES IN BED.

DOESN'T THAT MAKE SENSE,CLARKIE, OLD BOY?

THEY GIVE PATIENTS WEAK MEDICATION TO KEEP THEM SICK?

LOOK AROUND YOU.

THE LOONIES HEREONLY SEEM TO GET WORSE.

TAKE YOUR FRIENDCARL, FOR INSTANCE.

HE TOOK HIS MEDSLIKE A GOOD BOY, AND LOOK WHATHAPPENED TO HIM.

HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO CARL?

OH, DID I SAY SOMETHINGHAPPENED TO HIM?

I CAN'T BELIEVE YOUTALKED ME INTO THIS.

I JUST NEED TO CHECK SOMETHING OUT IN THE MEDS STATION REAL QUICK.

I'LL BE IN AND OUT IN 3 MINUTES.

OK. HURRY UP.

[DOOR CLOSES, FOOTSTEPS RECEDING]


HERE THEY ARE.

HURRY UP, AND LET'S GET OUT OF HERE.

OK. WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?

I'M GONNA SEND THE PILLS TO A FRIEND OF MINE WHO WORKS AT THE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL.

I JUST FIGURED MAYBE WHOEVER'S DOING THIS IS ON THE WRONG MEDICATION.

LOOK...CARL WAS READY TO GO HOME.

I MEAN, ACCORDING TO GRACE, HE WAS ON A HUGE DOSE OF TRANQUILIZERS.

HE SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GET OUT OF BED IN THE MORNING, MUCH LESS HANG HIMSELF.

WHAT?

IT'S CUTEWHEN YOU'RE SLEUTHING.

GOOD NIGHT.

[KISS]

GOOD NIGHT.

[DOOR CREAKS]

HELLO.

SARA?

HELLO.

[CUCKOO CLOCK CHIMING]

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME.

Sara: HURRY UP.

IF FRANKS FINDS OUT WE'REIN HIS OFFICE, WE'RE SCREWED.

IT WAS A LITTLE BOY.

I'VE BEEN SEEING HIM SINCE I GOT HERE.

AT FIRST, I THOUGHT IT WAS ONE OF THE GARDENER'S KIDS.

WHAT? AND YOU'RESURE HE ISN'T?

NO WAY.

LOOK...

I KNOW THIS SOUNDS STRANGE, BUT I'M STARTING TO THINK THAT THIS PLACE ACTUALLY MIGHT BE HAUNTED.

I KNOW. I WOULDN'T HAVE BELIEVED IT IF I HADN'T SEEN IT MYSELF.

BUT I THINK ALICE HAS SEEN SOMETHING, AND FRANKS, TOO. I MEAN, WHY ELSE WOULD HE HAVE ALL THESE BOOKS?

WHAT?

UM...JUST BETWEENYOUR THEORIES ON THE MEDICATIONAND FRANKS, AND NOW YOU'RESEEING GHOSTS?

MAYBE YOUR SURROUNDINGSARE STARTING TO AFFECT YOU.

I'M NOT CRAZY, SARA.

HE WAS RIGHT OUTSIDE MY WINDOW.

HE LOOKED RIGHT AT ME.

BELIEVE ME.

OK. OK. I DO.

OK.

HEY, WHERE DO THEY KEEP THE PATIENT RECORDS AROUND HERE?

IN THE NURSES STATION.

[MAN SHOUTING]

COME ON.

GET YOUR GODDAMNHANDS OFF ME!

I TOLD YOU I DIDN'T KILLTHAT STUPID BITCH!

THERE'S SOMETHING YOU OUGHT TO UNDERSTAND, MY FRIEND--

NOTHING GOES ON HERE THAT I DON'T KNOW ABOUT OR HEAR ABOUT. NOTHING.

THEN YOU PROBABLYALREADY KNOW THAT I'LL BE BACKFOR YOU, SON OF A BITCH, AND YOU, SNITCH!

YOU'RE NEXT.

I'M GONNASKIN YOU ALIVE.

NOBODY'S SAFE HERE!

MUZZLE HIM.

THAT POOR,TROUBLED BOY.

I HEARD HE WAS RAISED IN THE CARNIVAL.

NOW WE KNOW WHERE ALL THE NARCOTICS DISAPPEAR TO, DON'T WE?

WHAT HAPPENED?

THEY'RE TAKING HIM IN FOR QUESTIONING REGARDING NURSE HENDRICKS' DEATH.

FRANKS FOUND HER TASER IN HIS THINGS.

AND THEY ALSO FOUND OUT THAT HE WAS HAVING RELATIONS WITH A PATIENT.

Girls: TAKE THE KEY AND LOCK HER UP, LOCK HER UP, LOCK HER UP.

TAKE THE KEY AND LOCK HER UP, MY FAIR LADY.

TAKE THE KEY AND LOCK HER UP, LOCK HER UP, LOCK HER UP.

TAKE THE KEY AND LOCK HER UP, MY FAIR LADY.

[LAUGHTER]

CLARK, YOU THERE?

I'M SORRY. YES, THIS IS HE.

YEAH. HEY, THIS ISTOM FROM THE LAB.

HI, TOM.

LISTEN, THERE WERENO NARCOTICS IN THE DRUGSTHAT YOU GAVE ME.

WHAT?

NO. THEY WEREJUST PLACEBOS.

ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR LOOKING INTO THAT.

Clark: YOU WERE RIGHT ABOUT THE MEDICATION.

THE RISPERDEX THEY DISPENSE HERE IS JUST A PLACEBO.

Ben: TAKING MATTERSINTO OUR OWN HANDS?

VERY AGGRESSIVE.

I'M GONNA CALL THE BOARD FIRST THING MONDAY MORNING.

ONE OF THE PATIENTS IS GOING INTO PSYCHOSIS AND ACTING OUT BECAUSE HE'S NOT GETTING HIS MEDS.

THAT A BOY.I WOULDN'T TELL ANYONE ABOUT OUR LITTLEDISCOVERY UNTIL THEN.

YOU WOULDN'T WANTFRANKS OR ANYONE ELSE TO HAVE THE CHANCE TO COVER UPTHEIR DIRTY WORK.

THEY ARRESTED DRAKE TODAY.

I DON'T THINK HE DID IT.

I HEARD HENDRICKS ARGUING WITH FRANKS THE DAY SHE DIED.

I SOMEHOW THINK THAT HE'S CONNECTED AND SHE KNEW ABOUT IT.

THEY SAY THE OBVIOUS ANSWERUSUALLY IS THE ANSWER.

IT'S RIGHT IN FRONTOF YOUR EYES.

YOU JUST HAVE TO BEWILLING TO SEE IT.

HOW DO YOU KNOW ABOUT EVERYTHING THAT'S GOING ON AROUND HERE?

I'M SMART.

BE HONEST WITH ME.

CAN YOU GET OUT OF THIS CELL?

LET ME GO OUT, TOO!

WHY DO YOU GO OUT AND I DON'T?

ONLY IN MY MIND,ROYCE.

ONLY IN MY MIND.

TELL ME ABOUT THE GHOST OF THE LITTLE BOY.

HE'S SHOWING UP EVERYWHERE NOW.

HE MUST BE FONDOF YOU.

YOU'VE GOTWORK TO DO.

YOU BETTER GETBACK UPSTAIRS BEFORE YOU MISSANY MORE OF THE ACTION.

Sara: ADMITTANCE,DIAGNOSIS, RELEASE DATES.

HERE'S EVERYTHINGWE NEED.

THIS IS AMAZING.

GREAT JOB.

AND CHECK THIS OUT.

HERE'S THE SECTIONON ALL THE PATIENTS THAT HAVE BEENREHABBED AND RELEASED SINCE FRANKS TOOK OVER.

HOW MANY?

NONE.

NONE?

THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE.

I MEAN, THIS PROVES THAT HE'S KEEPING PATIENTS SICK SO THEY CAN'T GO HOME.

"BEN LONDON, CELL 44, SCHIZOPHRENIC, DIED IN...1989?"

SO?

SO HE'S NOT DEAD.

I JUST TALKED TO HIM THIS MORNING.

OK, YOU'RE LOSING ME.

DR. MORTON TOLD ME ABOUT A PATIENT WHO ESCAPED FROM CELL 44 YEARS AGO.

I MEAN, MAYBE BEN WAS THE ONE WHO ESCAPED, AND FRANKS JUST TRIED TO COVER IT UP BY SAYING THAT HE DIED.

WHEN THEY FINALLY GOT AROUND TO CATCHING HIM AND BRINGING HIM BACK--

THEY NEVER BOTHERED TO TAKE HIM OFFTHE DECEASED LIST.

EXACTLY.

WHAT ARE YOUTHINKING?

I DON'T KNOW.
