AMY: Oh, that's-- What does your doctor say?

[lively string music] [indistinct chatter] [music intensifies] 

LENNY: It's just spit, right? Human spit? 

[whispered voices] 

LENNY: Maybe he ate yogurt. Like, a creamy-- Or what's he on, you think? Klonopin? Yeah, Klonopin'll-- Or hold the phone. Yogurt and Klonopin. [Lenny's voice slows, laughter] That'll a cocktail 

[SYD enters] 

LENNY: Or hold the phone, is that who's that? [solemn music] Ooh, a dark horse candidate.

Late entry to the race. Ooh, good hair, nice hindquarters.

SYD: Watch it.

LENNY: A little jittery, but I got to say, folks, here at CNN, we like her chances.

DAVID: Give me your Twizzlers.

LENNY: Hey, now, let's not-- That's just low, son.

NURSE: Barrett, three pills.

SYD: Oh, shit.

Sorry, sorry.

SYD: Too close, too close.

DAVID: I'm sorry. I'm sorry, I just you know, I just wondered if you wanted a Twizzler.

And how does that make you feel? And how does that make you feel? 

DAVID: The drugs help.

[laughter] 

DAVID: The the Haldol.

NURSE: Barrett, three pills.

KISSINGER [VO]: How does that make you feel? 

SYD: Could you put the cup on the counter? 

Why? Oh, shit.

[tense music] 

KISSINGER [VO]: How do you feel? The Devil with Yellow Eyes 

[drumming] 

KISSINGER [VO]: Is he here now? 

[whispered voices] [harsh wailing] [screaming] 

DAVID: Whoa, whoa, whoa. I'm fine. I'm fine. I'm calm. I just had a bad dream, and Guys, violence is not necessary. Needles are not necessary.

[gentle music] 

KISSINGER: David. How does that make you feel? 

DAVID: I mean, it's just It's fine. Like, whatever. 'Cause, I mean, look at me. I-I know what I am.

And what's that? 

DAVID: Well, you know. The-- what happened. What I what I did to, uh to Dr. Poole.

KISSINGER: You went off your medications.

DAVID: But that's not [snapping] [clears throat] This You know, I I saw things.

KISSINGER: Delusions, you mean. We talked about that. Your brain chemistry, how your illness simulates voices all the hallucinations you describe. The Devil with Yellow Eyes.

SYD: Hmm.

KISSINGER: You have something to add? 

SYD: No. Please keep talking so we can all pretend that our problems are just in our heads.

What does that mean? It means that you're in here because somebody said you're not normal.

Like normal is this suit we're all supposed to But you know who else wasn't normal? Picasso, Einstein.

LENNY: Ooh, I like her. I like you. You got what the kids these days call moxie.

SYD: You know, just so I'm clear, are you Einstein or Picasso in this scenario? Whatever.

All I'm saying is, what if your problems aren't in your head? What if they aren't even problems? KISSINGER: Talk about that.

SYD: No, I'm good.

KISSINGER: I read in your file that you don't like to be touched. All animals need physical contact to feel love.

SYD: You know those cartoons in, like, magazines? There's a man on an island with, like, maybe a single palm tree. People say, "Go to your happy place," and that's what I think about.

Well, that's sad.

DAVID: That's sad? You're in a mental hospital.

SYD: All I'm saying is that thing they tell us is crazy, how I don't want to be handled, or you see stuff and hear, whatever, voices. That's what makes you you.

[gentle music] 

DAVID: Do you want to be my girlfriend? 

SYD: Okay. But don't touch me.

DAVID: Okay.

SYD: Yeah?

SYD: Okay. Find me at dinner.

MUSIC: She comes in colors everywhere She combs her hair She's like a rainbow Coming, colors in the air Oh everywhere She comes in colors 

SYD: No cherries.

DAVID: I basically live on cherry pie. It's incredible. Why?

SYD: I don't like orange-flavored things, and I don't like cherry-flavored things.

DAVID: I mean, this has, like, pretty much everything you need. It has, like, crust and cherries.

[laughs] 

MUSIC: She comes in colors everywhere

[laughs] 

MUSIC: She combs her hair She's like a rainbow Coming, colors in the air Oh, everywhere She comes in colors 

SYD: I see you. 

DAVID: This is your spot, huh? 

SYD: After the sun goes down, when the light is right, if you-- Kind of unfocus your eyes.

Like this, see? 

DAVID: That's charming.

SYD: Shut up. Now you. And then look back out. You see how the hospital disappears? 

[solemn music] 

SYD: You can see yourself down there. Like you're in here Watching yourself outside. What are you doing? 

DAVID: Keep calm. I'm not gonna touch you. Just hold still and look out the window.

CLARK: David. How long were you together, you and the girl who disappeared? 

DAVID: She didn't disappear. I told you, they they took her.

CLARK: Sydney Barrett, the girl? 

Yes. Look, talk to the hospital. They've got records.

CLARK: The hospital where you were a patient for the past six years after being diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia? 

DAVID: Yes, but my condition has nothing to do with that. I didn't make her up. She's a real girl a woman. Call the hospital. They've got records.

CLARK: We've spoken to the hospital, David. They have no record of Sydney Barrett ever being a patient there.

DAVID: Okay.

CLARK: Is it possible, Mr. Haller and I'm not a psychiatrist, so but is it possible that this whole thing the girl, the incident that it's just part of your illness, a delusion? 

DAVID: Uh, yes, sure, fine. Then well, how do you explain what happened to Lenny? Or all of them? 

CLARK: Well, I can't. That's why we're having this Talk to Dr. Kissinger. 

DAVID: He knows.

CLARK: And Dr. Kissinger was your psychiatrist? 

DAVID: Yes.

CLARK: Somehow I have a hard time believing your psychiatrist is gonna confirm the story that you're telling me now. 

KISSINGER: Well, David, I think, don't you, that we should talk about it? 

DAVID: Hmm? No.

KISSINGER: It's important you if you want to go home See, my job, part of my job, is to assess.

Are you still a danger to yourself, to others? And the fact that you tried to hang yourself 

CLARK: We can skip that part.

DAVID: Hmm? 

CLARK: Unless you think it's relevant to 

DAVID: No. I mean, we don't have to. Just 

CLARK: Interesting. Okay. Let's talk about it.

DAVID: [sighs] Uh, well, I had a hard time after college. After I got expelled. I wasn't thinking straight. The the voices and not sleeping and I was angry all the 

PHILLY: David.

DAVID: And then 

PHILLY: Are you okay? 

DAVID: Philly left.

[door slams] 

DAVID: And I decided, you know, what was the point? 

[indistinct P.A. announcement] 

DAVID: You know, when a plate breaks, you don't fix it. You just get another plate. So I tied a knot.

[overlapping voices] 

VOICES [VO]: No. I'm telling you, don't touch it. Don't. You're stupid. Weak! 

KISSINGER: Did the voices tell you to do that? 

DAVID: No, no. No, they tried to stop me. They didn't like it.

KISSINGER [VO]: And yet the police say they found no noose in the apartment. Just rope burns on your neck.

[whispered voices] [clears throat] 

KISSINGER: How do you feel now? 

DAVID: Better.

KISSINGER: Well, let me ask you this. Do you still feel that, quote, "You have power over things and can control things with your mind"? 

CLARK: Hold on. You think you can control things with your mind? 

DAVID: I did, at one point, but they helped with that, the drugs and is that why I'm here? Is that what this is? 

CLARK: David 

DAVID: I you think I did this, that I killed her with my mind? 

CLARK: No, don't be ridiculous, but the girl is dead, David. She is. And it wasn't a heart attack, right? So we're just, uh looking for the truth. Which you promised to tell.

DAVID: Look, I don't know, okay? It's it's fuzzy. It's 

CLARK: That's okay. Just tell me what happened next.

[gentle music] [snoring softly] 

SYD: Boo.

DAVID: Jesus. What are you doing? 

SYD: Shh 

DAVID: Can you be in here? 

SYD: Don't be a pussy. Lie back.

[muffled, distant shouting] 

SYD: No, I'll be on top.

DAVID: All right. Yeah.

SYD: I'm getting out tomorrow.

DAVID: What? 

SYD: Kissinger says I'm clean. So I get to go home.

DAVID: Good. That's good.

SYD: You got to get better, okay? So you can come home too.

[somber music] 

CLARK: And why couldn't you touch her? 

DAVID: Well, she was you know, it's a it's a mental hospital. People have issues. I mean, that's what I thought then.Now 

CLARK: And how long were you together before the incident? 

Can we can we take a break? Please, I just without the meds, it's really hard to keep things straight.

CLARK: Of course, and there's food coming, I promise, but let's take a break. We'll pick this up again in 30 minutes.

[tense electronic music] [door buzzes] [indistinct P.A.announcement] 

SOLDIER: And cue the phone.

[phone rings] 

SOLDIER: Yeah [unintelligible] Can I help you

[indistinct radio chatter] [indistinct chatter] 

TV: Second floor in the is very, very good. It's a real surprise.

BRUBAKER: How's it look? 

CLARK: He's twitchy.

BRUBAKER: You said he was off his meds? 

CLARK: Yeah, for a week now.

BRUBAKER: You think that may be why the sudden spike in telepathic activity? So is he crazy or 

CLARK: Well, I think he's telling the truth as he knows it.

BRUBAKER: Meaning? 

CLARK: Well, he believes he's mentally ill, but at the same time part of him knows that the power is real.

BRUBAKER: And are we clear on the scope and nature of this power? 

CLARK: No, but if the readings are right, he may be the most powerful mutant that we have ever encountered.

BRUBAKER: [chuckles] After what happened in Red Hook, I'd say that's an understatement. So he has the power, but he doesn't understand it or know how to control it.

CLARK: I'd like to dig deeper, see if we can figure out what triggers it.

BRUBAKER: Division One thinks we should kill him now, before he realizes what he is. We may never get the chance again.

CLARK:  That would be a mistake. We've never had a subject like this before. I need Look, just give me till the end of the day, and you have the gas if you need it.

[dog growling softly] 

BRUBAKER: Okay, but if he so much as farts too loud, we're moving to Level Two.

CLARK: Oh, it's just a few tests. They're readings, really. We want to see what happens in your brain when you feel things.

DAVID: What things? Stop. Look, just I want a lawyer, okay? I was willing to cooperate before, but now I'm tired. I'm just so just 

CLARK: David, I need you to stay calm.

DAVID: Huh. You're afraid of me.

CLARK: David, please. I'm afraid for you. You're a very sick young man who stopped taking his medication. Are you a danger to yourself or to others? I think that's what we're here to ascertain.
