The Watcher Script - Dialogue Transcript

Voila! Finally, the The Watcher script is here for all you quotes spouting fans of the James Spader, Keanu Reeves, and Marisa Tomei movie.  This script is a transcript that was painstakingly transcribed using the screenplay and/or viewings of The Watcher. I know, I know, I still need to get the cast names in there and I'll be eternally tweaking it, so if you have any corrections, feel free to drop me a line. You won't hurt my feelings. Honest.

The Watcher Script



 Dead, I'm the one  exterminating son 

 Slipping through the trees  strangling the breeze 

 Dead, I'm the sky  watching angels cry 

 As they slowly turn  conquering the worm 

 Dead I'm the pool  spreading from the fool 

 Weakened want you need  Nowhere as you bleed 

 Dead I'm the rat  Feast upon the cat 

 Tender is the fur  Dying as you purr 

It's never quite that easy. 

You go through the door, and they're never  just sitting there waiting for you... 

with a welcoming smile   on their face. 

Best you can do   is hope they fuck up... 

and do what you can   to be there when they do. 

And then blame yourself   for the killings ? 

Oh, no. I blame   the asshole who did them. 

This man's whole life   is about killing. 

He studies it.   He knows forensics. 

He understands   police procedure. 

He prepares methodically so as to not  to leave any evidence at the scene. 

After he picks his target,   he'll watch her for weeks. 

He'll study every detail   of her routine-- 

When she comes home.   When she goes to sleep. 

In the morning   before the sun comes up, 

he can walk   right up next to her. 

Even though the sun's still down,   no one perceives it as night. 

Women who are careful at midnight,  walk around half-naked seven hours later. 

Finally,   he'll pick a day. 

Takes a kit of tools and props-- 

duct tape, handcuffs, a weapon--   whatever he needs. 

He'll let himself in. 

That night,   she'll get home. 

Go about her business,   unaware that he's in the house. 

Oh... this is good. 

Shall we dance ? 

No, don't play hard to get. 

This will be fun. 


Shh. It's over.   It's all right. 


I said, "Shut... up." 

When she passes out...   from foreordain, 

he'll revive her   over and over again to-- 


What were you   going to say ? 

Time's up. 


Why did you turn   away from me ? 

Why was it so hard   for you to accept ? 

'Cause you know   I did it for you. 

You came so close to me   that night. 

I remember clearly what I felt   when I heard your footsteps following behind me. 

- Pride. 

I thought it would keep us   together forever. 

For me, 

it was our finest moment. 

I can still see the flames. 

Oh ! 

Shit.   What the fuck ? 

Oh, fuck ! 

I didn't see anything. 

Wanda, you wanna run that in to Sarge ?   Right on it. 

Hey, I'm Detective Mackie.   Welcome to my crime scene. 

Can I help you find anything ? 

I'm just going home.   I live upstairs. 

Did you not happen to notice that  yellow police tape marked "Do Not Cross" ? 

If you're done with that, I'll just   take it and go home.- Do you know this woman ? 

I've never seen her.   What happened ? Is she dead ? 

Oh, I haven't made   any reference to homicide. 

Why would you hasten   to such a conclusion ? 

Well, you got half the block   taped off, and you got what, 

about a dozen cops in there,   fuckin' up your crime scene ? 

It just doesn't seem like   someone boosting stereos to me. 

Look here. Give me a call   if you think of anything. 

All right ? 

Hello. Yeah, this is Hollis.   Hello. 

This is Campbell.   I'm the guy-- We met last night. 

Yeah, Joel Campbell.   Our ex-F.B.I. friend from apartment 805. 

We did a little checking on you after you left.   What can I do for you ? 

I can hardly-- Are you busy ?   It sounds like you're in the middle of something. 

Yeah, some genius jacked a Honda a couple blocks ago.   That's an '86. 

- What, do you want me to call you back ?   - No. 

When did she die,   the girl ? 

Monday night.   Three days ago. Why ? 

'Cause I know who did it.   And how might you know that ? 

He mailed me a picture of her   still alive. 

I got it three days ago--   Monday morning. 

Hold on a minute, Campbell.   Teen hoodis on the run. 

Okay.   Sorry to keep you. 

Now... you wanna meet me   back at my office ? All right. 

Is it your custom to open your mail   four days after you get it ? 

Nope. Sometimes   it takes up to two weeks. 

Well,   this would appear... 

to answer any questions we had  whether these two cases were related. 

Goodness gracious. 

Nothin' like a good serial killing   to kick off the holiday season. 

Right in here. 

Gimme a minute in that room.   Okay, Lieutenant. 

We got him sending   his pictures in the mail. 

Campbell, hell, we oughta get Bob Barker   in on this son of a bitch. 

It's a damn game show. 

His last alias was   David Allen Griffin. 

I worked the case for three and a half years   in Los Angeles. 

We attributed at least   11 homicides to him. 

- What's he doing in Chicago ?   - I assume he's still strangling young women with piano wire. 

All the victims were left partially unclothed,  and all the swabs came back negative. 

Exactly.   No touchy, no feely. 

Have you ever seen   this guy ? 

No. No one's   ever seen him. 

Well, then we can't necessarily conclude   it's the same fella, can we ? 

Come on. He sent me   fuckin' pictures. 

Shoved the vic right up my ass   in my own fucking building. 

- Sorry.   - It's quite all right. 

You looked adorable. 

This film stock says   it's for exterior sunshine, 

but... how does it handle   in fluorescence ? 

Uh, I'm sorry.   I have no idea what you're talking about. 

I just work here. 

- You do film processing here.   - Uh, yeah, one hour. 

- Do you mind ?   - Sure. 

- What are you doing ?   - I'm going to test it out. 

I'm gonna shoot some pictures, 

and you're going to   process them for me. 


Yeah, chief of Chicago P.D.   already called. 

Not surprising,   I suppose, they're inviting us in on this. 

They're setting up a joint task force   as we speak. 

I'd like to know if you think   you can handle it on our end. 

I know that in L.A.-- 

Oh, no, this isn't L.A.   It's not my job anymore. 

You know what ? The only reason  that your burnt-out, messed-up ass... 

is standing in my office is because   you had a three-year head start on us. 

This perp is set on putting you   in the middle of this shit whether we like it or not. 

You're right.   The field office in L.A. has the relevant files. 

I can't tell you anything   that's not in them. 

I'm sorry. 

Mike. Excuse me. 

Mike, we got several sets of prints   off the FedEx envelope and the photo itself. 

I'm sorry. This is none of   my business, but, uh, 

you can run the prints. 

You're gonna get me,   the driver, three guys from the warehouse, 

Santa Claus...   a whole bunch of elves. 

Definitely not this guy. 

Who the hell is that ? 

Run it. 

Yes, sir. 


 Can't anybody see 

Well, you're young. 

Do you plan to live on  disability your whole life ? 

I take 200 milligrams of Seconal  just so I can sleep two and a half hours a night. 

Twice a day, I take   400 milligrams of acebutolol... 

and 20 milligrams of lotensen   for high blood pressure. 

I self-inject migraine medicine   whenever the fuck I please. 

They don't...   mix well with work. 


Maybe you're just afraid. 

Fuckin' right. 

I am afraid. 


Let's talk about that. 

I go places,   and I forget why I'm there. 

I miss exits on the freeway. 

I'm lucky to...   find my way home from the grocery store. 

And if I do, then... 

most of the time   I've forgotten my groceries. 

But yet, you make it   here every week. 

Twice a week. 


You do. 

What if the next picture   that arrived was of your daughter ? 

Would you really want me   to be the one looking for her ? 


Yes... I would. 

 From this moment 

 How can it feel 

 This wrong 

Hello.   Hi. It's me. 

Me ? 

Me who ? 

It's freaking cold here.   Why'd you move here ? 

What the fuck   do you want from me ? 

You hardly leave your apartment.   And when you do, it's to eat... 

at that same terrible Vietnamese restaurant   night after night. 

You seem so bored.   I was expecting a warmer welcome. 

I didn't fuckin'   ask you here, did I ? 

The guy they   replaced you with-- 

I tried to make it work,   but we just didn't see eye to eye at all. 

I was going to quit the game entirely,   but then I thought, "Chicago's not so bad." 

At least you didn't move   to New Jersey, right ? 


So, why don't you   grab a pen ? 

I'll give you the name and number of the...   agent that's on your case. 

You can... share your inner turmoil with him   'cause I don't give a shit. 

I know your job   is hard, Joel, 

so I'm willing to take steps   to try and make things work between us. 

- What are you talking about ?   - The photos, Joel. 

I'll send you a picture,   and you can have a day to try to find her. 

I'll give you till 9:00.   What do you say, Joel ? 

I say I should have moved   to New jersey, asshole. 

Good night, Joel. 

Are you all right ?   I think so. 

Shit ! 

Who is it ?  Flowers for Joel Campbell. 

You didn't answer the phone. The door downstairs was open,   so I thought I'd just bring-- 

Put the flowers on the floor. 

Thank you. 

The photos, Joel. 

I'll send you a picture,   and you can have a day to try to find her. 

No, I've never seen her.   Is she dead? 

I haven't made any reference to homicide.   Why would you hasten to such a conclusion ? 

Are you just afraid ?   Fuckin 'right. I'm afraid. 

What if the next picture that arrived   was of your daughter? 

Really want me to be the one   looking for her? 

Yes.   I'll send you a picture. 

You can have a day   to try to find her. 

I got this a half hour ago. 

I want the case. 

Can you handle it ? 

I guess we'll find out. 

What else did this asshole say last night ? 

That's everything. 

We already have a trap and trace   on that line and on your cell phone. 

What is that ?   What is that, a bird ? 

This is a poster.   Looks like it was shot inside. 

Could be taken anywhere. 

It was processed commercially. 

See if these numbers are traceable.   If not, get me a list... 

of every place in the city that prints   on this Kodak paper. You got it. 

Is that mine ?   Thanks. 

I'm sorry. I can't remember your name.   Mitch Casper. 

Mitch, get this in the computer   and blow it up. 

Find out what's behind her on the wall.   That thing right there. 

Find out what kind of earrings she's wearing,   what kind of blouse that is. 

- What's that on her glasses ?   - Reflection, yeah. 

Find out something   about her. Anything. 

Both girls are basically loners,   very little social contact. 

The last girl's parents   were deceased. 

No close friends as far as we can tell.   Is that his victim profile ? 

No. I mean, the victims   were always young women, 

but he's sending   pictures now. 

He's only gonna target loners.   You know, women people don't notice. 

He's not gonna send me   a picture of the prom queen. 

Yeah. Well, listen.   Before we go any further, 

we're gonna have to make a decision   as to whether to go to the press with this. 

We gotta make it now. 

Look. There's no decision to make.  There is shit else we can do for this woman. 

Let's get him   in front of the cameras. 

They're gonna like him. 

All I can tell you   at this time is that... 

All I can tell you   at this time is that... 

we have substantial reason to believe   this woman's life is in serious danger. 

The Chicago Police Department   and the F.B.I. are working in concert... 

to try and locate her,   and we're gonna be grateful for any help... 

you guys can give us   in this endeavor. 

Every hour is critical.   That's all. 

This young woman is missing. 

Authorities are frantically searching for her.   They fear for her safety. 

Any information on the whereabouts   or the identity of the woman... 

police are referring to as "Jane Doe,   "please call the number on your screen. 

This is the photograph   of an unknown young woman... 

who they say might fall victim to a murder   if she is not located by 9.:00. 

"What kind of earrings are those ?   What kind of blouse is that ?" 

What are you bitching about ?   Oh, come on, Diana. 

This was my case. Ibby opens the door   and in flies "Captain Barbiturate." 

You know, I don't care   how well he knows this creep. 

I say if his pupils don't dilate,   then we don't need him. 

Ma'am, there-- There hasn't   been a reward established, 

but I'm sure something can be done. 

Okay. Today ?   Was that today ? 

Okay, thank you.   We'll check it out. 

- Anything yet ? - Eighty-five, ninety calls   in the last fifteen minutes. 

I mean, lots of "maybes"   and "possibles." 

We're trying to sift through the shit,   but there's a lot of it. 

Despite a massive search   this afternoon, 

police still have not located the anonymous woman   whose photo was received this morning. 

They continue to rely on your help   in this frightening case. 


What is that ? A sign ?   Uh-huh. 

- See ?   - Yeah, all right. 

I'll enhance the drum scan. We'll bring it   even closer, and we'll see what we got. 

All right ?   Fuck. 

Yeah.   The numbers are only relevant... 

if you find the location   where it was processed. 

- What about the paper ?   - The list is on its way. 

Eleven hundred locations.   Eleven hun-- What ? 

Do you know where there's   a Lou Mitchell's restaurant on Oak Street ? 

Yeah, it's in the Gold Coast area.   We'll take it. Let's run. 

Yep, I'm pretty sure   that washer. 

She was wearing a headband.   Was she alone or eating with someone ? 

Uh, she was alone.   When was the last time you saw her ? 

I don't know.   Sometime last week. 

Can you be more specific ?   What day ? 

No.   Not without making shit up. 

We don't want you to do that. I want every employee   that worked here in the last week... 

in the restaurant within the hour--   managers, cooks, 

dishwashers, cashiers.   That's gonna be hard. 

Life is hard. Pull every credit card   sale for the week. 

Eliminate men, married women, anyone over 40.   We need to call every one of them. 

Got it. I gotta be on the phone.   See if we can get some help. 

Okay.   Can you spare anyone ? 

I'll get you   all the help you want. 

Good. We'll fax them a list of names.   They need to start making calls. 

I'm on it. 

Okay. Thank you very much. 

Authorities are hoping   that as millions... 

return home from work and turn on the television,   that someone will recognize this young woman. 

They are taking this threat   on her life very seriously. 

What the fuck do you want me to say ?   It's five to 6:00, for Christ's sake. 

If they're not home,   call back in 45 minutes. 

They're getting home   from work. 

Excuse me.   Check this out. 

You were right.   It's definitely... 

"A-P" and the line   is an exclamation point. 

Does that mean   anything to you ? 

Add a "C-R" to it,   it spells "Crap." 

No. What do you   want me to say ? 

Yeah, that's true.   It spells "Crap." 

One of your waitresses   saw her here sometime last week. 

Look at the picture carefully   and tell me if you remember her. 

Sorry, man. I make it a point to pay   as little attention to the customers as possible. 

- Does it seem like   playtime to you ? - No. 

Take a look at the fucking picture   and tell me if you saw her. 

- I never saw her.   - You sure ? 

Yeah.   That's too bad. 

Thank you for coming in. 

Come on, darling.   Click on your television set. 

It's Thursday night, goddamn it.   "Must-see TV." 

Earlier today, we told you investigators   were combing the streets of Chicago... 

searching for this woman--   a woman they are... 

referring to as "Jane Doe. "   Put up the fuckin' number. Let's go. Come on. 

They are still in need   of your help. 

- Come on ! Don't take--   - The city council approves a new budget. 

If that's all the help they're gonna give us--   What was the time of death on the other two ? 

- What ?   - 9:00. 

It's done.   We're notgonna make it. 

We're not gonna make it. 

Okay. Good night, Ellie.   See you tomorrow. 

That was it. Third possible   sighting in Fox Pavilion Mall. 

Grab some backup.   You wanna come with ? 

You know me,   your hat's on backwards. 

Talk to you later. Bye. 

Guys, look. 

She's been sighted here on   three separate occasions, okay ? 

Everybody we see walking around here   is a possible witness. 

So, I want you to find out. I don't know   if she works here, if she lives nearby. 

Take these fliers.   Get them to everybody in the place. 

I wanna show 'em, okay ?   You guys come with me. 

Who spoke to   the most recent caller ? I did. 

You ? Let's go.   Take level three. 

Can you take a look   at these pictures, please ? 

Speak to the gentleman back here.   Take a look at that, please. Thank you. 

Take a look at that ?   Thank you. 

If you see her, please give us a call.   No, I've never seen her. 

Frank ?   Hey, Frankie ! 

How was your day, hmm ? 

Oh, yeah ? That's nice. 

Mine ? Not so good. 

Excuse me. Are you   the person who saw her ? -Yeah. 

Is this her ?   Where ? Yeah, that's her. 

I saw her down there   in the food court. 

There ? Right there ?   Yeah. 

When ?   At 2:30 this afternoon. 

Excuse me. 

Hollis. Hollis ! 

What do you got ? 

The photo store. 

Where ? Where ?   The photo store. 

Here. Right here.   This is where he shot it. 

See ? There's our   little bird. Hello ? 

- Hey ! Hey !   - Sorry. 

Do you know this woman ? 

Uh, yeah. She just   started working here. 

It's Ellie. I'll need her phone number   and last name. Right now. 

Get her number now.   Okay. I have to call my boss. 

- Do it. Do it !   - Okay. 

- Goddamn cows. 


Mom ? Calm down.   What is it ? 

No, I'm sure that   you're overreacting. 

Gimme a break.   Why are you saying that ? 

Look, Mom. I very much doubt that your pharmacist   is just trying to poison you. 

Can we not do this right now, Mom ?   I'm in the middle of a movie. 

Yeah, Mom, with a man. 

Yeah, he's cute. 

I-I don't know   if it's serious or not. 

Look. If I tell you his name,   will you let me get off the phone ? 

His name is Frank.   Good-bye. 

- Come on. Come on. 

Yes ? 

Uh, I need to speak   to Ellie Buckner immediately. 

Oh, she can't come   to the phone right now. 

No, no, please, please. Put her on the line   immediately. It's a life-or-death emergency. 

Not anymore it's not. 

Wasn't that fun ?   It hasn't felt that good for years. 

Wasn't it suspenseful ? 

Oh, yeah,   that was a blast. 

This way is much more fun. 

It's amazing, isn't it ? 

We're all stacked   right on top of each other, 

but we don't really notice   each other anymore, do we ? 

You notice me though,   don't you, Joel ? 

Yeah, I notice you. 

Ellie Buckner. 

Single, 24,   parents live in Florida. 

So far, no known boyfriend. 

She has a cat named Frank.   Apparently, he doesn't watch the news. 

Wonder what happened   to that cat ? 

Pull the phone records,   okay ? 

Diaries, journals,   letters, address book. 

See if he's in contact   with these girls. 

Hey, ma'am.   Can you spare some change ? 

Hey, guys.   Hey, Dad ! 

Dad, don't you   recognize me ? 

Hey, sir. Can you   spare some change ? 

What are you   doing out here ? 

Spare changing, man.   What's it look like ? 

- Don't you have a job or anything ?   - Yeah, whatever. 

Look. Are you gonna give me   some money, or what ? 

- Only if you dance with me.   - Shut the fuck up. 

- I'm serious.   - There's no music. 

- I'll lead, you follow. 

And one, two, three.   One, two, three. One, two, three. 

Damn it. Having a tough time there,   aren't you, with that ? 

I need a damn garden rake   to eat this. 

It's all in the tool. 

I'm done with that   for sure. 

So, listen here. 

What's the skinny on that radiant vision   of loveliness down at the feds ? 

What's her name ?   Diana ? 

What I wouldn't give for 20 minutes with her   at a drive-in and a decent bowl of chili. 

Damn if you haven't found the worst   restaurant in the whole city of Chicago. 

A really fine restaurant. The other night,   Griffin was giving me... 

a hard time about it   too on the telephone. 

What's up ?   What's up ? 

What do you think the chances are   he's watching us right now ? 

Hey. Hey !   Get outta here. 

Murder suspect heading west on Commerce,   near the intersection of Lincoln. 

Blue, two-door sedan,   mid- '80s, maybe a Ford. 

Fuck !   Goddamn it ! 

I'm standing outside   the apartment of Ellie Buckner, 

the woman who Chicago   has come to know as "Jane Doe." 

The harrowing search came   to a tragic end about 9:20 P.M., 

when police discovered Buckner's   body at her Wicker Park apartment. 

It is a murder that has shocked   this quiet neighborhood. 


See you later. Bye. 

Excuse me. 

I can't stay long.   I just wanted to come by... 

and tell you how much   I appreciate... 

what you...   said the other day. 

How have   the headaches been ? 

About the same. 

Are you sleeping ? 


How's work ? 

It's great. I'm building an excellent   fan base with the homicidal set. 

How do you feel   about that, 

about this man   following you to Chicago ? 

Is it a vendetta ? 

That's a strange question. 

No, I don't think vengeance   has anything to do with it. 

I think there's a story,   a ritual that he follows. 

Over the years, I became   part of the story. 

It probably didn't   make sense without me. 

In other words,   he missed you. 

Odd, isn't it ? 

Did you miss him ? 

What the hell   does that mean ? 

Excuse me. 



We received another photo.   I'll be right there. 

Where is she sitting ? 

Let's get somebody   from the city up here. 

See if they can tell us something   about this section of sidewalk. 

Is this the "El" here,   you know ? Parking meters. 

Yep, I'm on it. 

Mitch, let's get her picture   in tattoo parlors. 

Got it. 

What's your name ? 

Well, usually,   Mr. Abraham, 

I do an introductory session, 

where we both explore what you   hope to get out of therapy. 

If we both feel I'm the person   to provide that for you, 

then we can decide   on a schedule together. 

And-- And I like   to record my sessions. 

But if you prefer-- 

Is that something that you do   with all of your patients ? 

Yeah, with most of them. 

- Would you prefer that I didn't ?   - Yes, I'd rather you not. 

Okay.   That's-- That's fine. 

So, you say that you might need help.   In-In what area ? 

I'm not sure. 

What kind of help   do you provide ? 

Well, I-I work with patients   on many different issues. 

Do you think...   some of your patients... 

might pay to come and see you   because... you're very pretty ? 

Let's keep this focused on you,   rather than on me, Mr. Abraham. 


Nice trick. 

I'm gonna try it again though, okay ?   Yeah, whatever. 

A couple of years ago, they did   a neighborhood renovation... 

where they put those benches   around some of the trees downtown. 

Where downtown ?   Bring up the city. 

Basically the Broadway   and Belmont area. 

That's 15 to 20 city blocks.   Yeah. 

There are five million   people in this city. 

How can no one have known this person ?   Can you spare some change ? 

How can this happen   in the communication age ? 

Authorities have focused   the search for "Jane Doe #2 "-- 

Hey, Dad. Dad, it's me. Don't you   recognize me ? Leave me alone. 

Come on, Pop.   I need you, man. 

The city of Chicago is on alert. 

Police are searching for a woman connected   to the photograph they have received. 

It appears the murder may be linked   to a serial killer in the Los Angeles area. 

At this point, the woman   police are calling "Jane2"... 

has not yet been located... 

-and all those involved are very   concerned about her well-being. 

Yeah. We've got Jane Doe's   mother on the phone. 

I'll be right there. 

You know what ? Get a picture at every   skateboarding place and guitar shop... 

that's anywhere near that   Broadway and-- 

Belmont.   Belmont. Exactly. 

Wish I could find some letters.   There aren't any. 

She never wrote anybody. 

She called three times.   Did she say where she was calling from ? 

She said all kinds of things. I never knew   what to believe. She has a new boyfriend. 

- So tell me about the boyfriend.   - He's a lawyer. Yeah, right. 

Can you remember anything else about the calls ?   Anything might help. 

A few months ago, she called to announce   she's got a job at Seattle's Best Coffee. 

Seattle's Best ? 

Seattle's Best ? 

Not good news. She does not work, nor has she   ever worked at Seattle's Best. 

I don't care whether she works there or not,   she is sitting in front of a coffee shop. 

I don't know. 

It looks like a bench to me.   It could be anywhere. I'll be honest with you. 

Look at the photo.   There are seven people in the picture. 

Three of them are holding   the same kind of coffee cup. 

She's sitting in front   of a fucking coffee shop. 

Get someone into every   Seattle's Best in the city... 

and any place that sells coffee   in the Broadway Belmont area. 

Take a look at this.   Okay. 

Is that too fast ? 

Okay, okay.   Whoa ! 

You wanna kill me, sweetie ? Come on, get on.   I thought you were gonna impress me. 

Yeah, yeah.   You're so tough. 

Hey, you mind posting these ?   Thanks. 

Ma'am, we're looking for this girl.   We're trying to contact her. 

Totally, dude.   She comes in here all the time. 

We found a kid that knows her.   Seattle's Best, Lincoln and Wisconsin. All right. 

Thanks.   I gotta go, jess. 

I'm sorry.   I'm so late. 

Can I sneak into your room ?   No. 

The last time we got caught,   my dad went ballistic. 

Don't be sad, Jessie.   Forget about it. 

Yeah, I let her use the bathroom, you know.   I told the other dudes. 

I don't give a shit what you told the   other guy. I wanna know where she lives. 

I wanna know where she is.   Dude, she lives on the street. 

 As our light goes out 

 There's nothing left to say 

 There's nothing left   to say or talk about 

 You can't say   anything I don't know 

 I already understand 

We gotta find this woman. Call the police if   you find this woman. Help us out here. 

Somebody, help.   Look at this. 

Call the police if you find this woman.   Help us out here. 

Leave me alone. 

Hey.   Get back here. 

Look at the fucking picture, all right ?   Look at the picture. 

You seen this girl, huh ?   No. 

Excuse me.   Have you seen that girl ? 

Look at the picture   before you answer. 

You seen this girl ?   Thank you. No. Sorry. 

See that.   That's what I want, okay ? 

Excuse me.   You see this girl ? Huh ? 

No, I haven't.   All right, thanks. 

You seen her?   Have you seen that girl ? 

Sir, have you seen this girl ?   Have you seen that girl ? 

Hey, hey. Stop, stop.   But I didn't do anything ! 

I never said you did. Just look at the picture.   Have you seen this girl ? 

She's about your age.   Fuck you, cop. I don't know shit. 

 You can't say 

 Anything I don't know 


Hey.   That sounds great. 

Yeah ? You like it ? 


Then here,   let me turn it up. 

If you don't tell me where she is, your friend Jessica   will be dead within the hour. 

All right. 

She stays   on the top floor, man. 

Please, God.   Please, please. 

Please, God.   Help me please. 

Just up the way there. 

Just up the way there. 

Get him out of here.   Come on, come on. 


Campbell, you okay ? 

Campbell, open the door. 

Open it. 

Campbell ? You here ? 

Joel ? 

He's freezing.   Mitch, call a paramedic. Shit. 

This morning investigators   are stilling search... 

for the serial killer responsible   for last night's rampage. 

Three policemen were killed   and one young woman was murdered. 

The F.B.I. agent in charge of the task   force has been hospitalized. 


Hey, hey. Come in. 

You didn't have to come here. 

Yeah, well. I didn't think you   could get to me. 


Besides, I don't have that many patients yet,   so I really can't afford to lose one. 


I've never seen you outside the office.   You look so different. 

Really ? Hmm.   'Cause you look exactly the same. 


Have you eaten ? 

Do you need to eat ? 

All I got is jell-O. 


You wanna eat ?   Yeah, let's eat. 


In other words, he missed you.  Odd, isn't it ? 

Did you miss him ?   What the hell does that mean ? 

In other words, he missed you.   Odd, isn't it ? 

Did you miss him ?   What the hell does that mean ? 

Look, I'm sorry. I can't talk now.   I'll call you back, all right ? 

Excuse me, Agent Casper ?   This just came for Agent Campbell and I just-- 

- How did you get this ?   - The post office forwarded it from his apartment. 

Thank you. Shit. 

Good morning. Thank you   for your attention. 

My comments today   will be brief. 

Uh, as many of you   know already, 

we have received   another photograph. 

No, no, no. 

I am not going to answer   any questions today. 

I just am here to pass out   this photograph... 

and to request that you continue to assist us   in this investigation. 

That's all.  Police Detective Hollis Mackie... 

informing us that this horrible game   of cat and mouse will continue today. 

Here is the photo   of the killer's latest target. 

You all right ? You sure ?   Yeah. 

I think so.   I'll be right back. 

Help me. Help me. 

Help me! 

Hi, Joel. 

How's the heart, pal ? 


You want a beer ? 

It would make it   feel better. 



Tell me something. 

Did you move 2,000 miles to live   near this woman's grave ? 

You did, didn't you ? 

Man, you've gotta   get out more. 

I mean, is this   a satisfying relationship ? 

You know, she loves me.   She's decomposing. 

She loves me.   She's decomposing. 

What are we doing here ? What is this ?   You here to give yourself up ? 

Why didn't you tell anyone   you were fucking her ? 

Just 'cause she was married? 

We don't seem to be communicating.   Let me be clear with you. 

I have no problem with shooting you   dead where you sit. 

Well, you do   have one problem. 

If I'm dead, 

your friend Polly is going to meet   a rather gruesome fate... 

involving candlelight and quite   a large pool of kerosene. 

And you know something   about attractive women burning, don't you ? 

Tell me, what was it like ? 

Could you smell   her flesh burning ? 

You've already killed her. 

Come on. You know me   better than that. 

That's not even her blood. 

Take me to see her then. 

Oh, I don't know about that. 

Can't we just sit here for a little   while and talk, Joel ? 

We'll talk once I see her. 

I just need to know   if there's anything to talk about. 

Go on, take it. 

I just need to see that she's all right,   then we'll talk. 

Well, fine. 

Let's go. 

It's good to see you, Joel.   It really is. 

Wow, it's loaded. 

We're going to make it   through this, aren't we, Joel ? 

I think that's more   up to you than it is to me. 

You look older   since you were in L.A. 

You're a good friend. 

You're like a brother to me. 

Did you know that ? 

Do you have any real   brothers or sisters ? 

What the fuck   What is that ? 

I'm trying to have   a real conversation, 

and you're psychoanalyzing me. 

- What are you, Dr. Polly now ?   - I was just curious. 

Look at me when I talk to you. 

You're trying to control this situation.   Stop trying to control this situation. 

Can't you just leave your job   out of this ?Just this once ? 

I'm telling you. I think you're spending   too much time with that Polly bitch. 

What do you need ? 

I want you to think   about what you need. 

It's up to me to try and get that   and make an exchange. 

Anything you need   for Ms. Beilman's safety. 

What I need is you. 

Hold on. 


I knew if I just came here   and talked to you in person, 

you'd understand me   better, Joel. 

Fuck me, he's got   Campbell ! Trace it ! 

You were the only one   who thought about me, 

who really knew me. 

For a long time, 

I was the only one you had. 

And then you met Lisa. 

Pull in here. 

Give me a second.   Give me a second. 

Okay, he's about 20 miles   north of the city. 

Yeah, you're gonna have   to do better than that. Now come on. 

No shit ! Give me another minute and   we'll have his exact location. 

I got him ! I got him.   He's right on the water. 

Come on in. 

Polly, Joel.   Joel, Polly. 

 She freak out at a damaged life   like a jailbait in the park 

 A teenage wolf and a bloody knife   going down in the dark 

 How to make a monster baby 

 How to get it on 

 How to make a monster baby 

 How to get it on 

 Go, go, Zombie   Go, go, yeah, yeah, yeah 

 Go, go, Zombie   Go, go, yeah, yeah, yeah 

 Roots in hell and time will tell   if your baby is insane 

 A child bride with bloody eyes   and Satan on the brain 

Wakey, wakey, Joel. 

That hurts, doesn't it ? 

I've heard that flashing lights   and migraines don't go together at all. 

You're no fun. 

- Oh, no, Polly. No, no,   I'm not gonna kill him. 

We need each other.   We define each other. 

We're... yin and yang,   black and white. 

- Isn't that right, Polly ? 

Polly ? 

I said, "Isn't that right ?" 

I don't understand   the question. 

Did you or did you not,   in your professional opinion, 

reach the conclusion that Joel and I need   each other in order to give meaning to our lives ? 

Yes. Yes, but I-- 

See ? 

Take your fucking   hands off her. 

I said take your   fucking hands off her. 

Sit down, Joel. 

Sit down. 

I'll sit here and listen to you talk all night.   Just take your hands off her. 

Come on, put the fucking gun down.   We both know you're not gonna do it. 

And why do we know that ? 

Because you can   only kill her once. 

He's right. 

He's right. 

Upsy daisy. 

How's this for deja vu ? 

We've got the fire. 

We've got the pretty girl. 

Only instead   of bringing us together, 

you move to Chicago. 

The guilt must   have been unbearable. 

Or something like that. 

Is that what   you want me to say ? 

I feel guilty a woman is  dead because I made a terrible mistake. 


No, no.   That wasn't the mistake. 

The mistake was turning back   instead of pouring all you had into us. 

What do I want you to say ?   I want you to say thank you. 

I want you to say thank you for coming here   and saving your pathetic life. 

David, do you know how many serial killers   are active in Chicago right now ? 

Five.   In the Midwest, at least a dozen. 

I could work on any one of them   without even packing a bag. 

You get hit by a bus on a Thursday,  I'm working on a new guy on Monday. 

You're my job.   You're paperwork. 

I can't believe you still don't know   who you're talking to. 

No, no, no ! 

No, please don't-- 

I have to do this.   He's not going to understand anything else. 

You heard him. "Paperwork. " 

Thank you. 

- What did you say ?   - I said, "Thank you." 

Tell me again. 

I said, "Thank you." 

Get out of here. 

Let's go !   Run, run ! 

Joel ! Joel ! 

Give me your hand !   Reach for it ! 

Ready ? Reach. 

Here you go.   You all right ? 

Give me that blanket. 

Where's the girl ?   Is she all right ? 

She's right over there. 

Let's get the fucking body out.   Okay. 

It's never quite that easy.   You go through the door. 

They're never just sitting there waiting for you   with a welcoming smile on their face. 

The best you can do is hope they fuck up  and do what you can to be there when they do.
