[first lines; Colt wakes up on a train]
Christina Warren: I took your advice. It was good advice. Thank you.
[Colt looks at her not understanding what she’s talking about]
Christina Warren: You look pale. Everything okay?
[Colt hears a noise and looks behind him]
Christina Warren: Sean? Sean?
[a woman walking passed Colt’s seat spills her coffee on his shoe]
Christina Warren: Hey? The only thing I wanted to tell you, the only reason why I canceled…
[her cell phone goes off, she looks to see who it is]
Christina Warren: He’s calling me three times a day. I hear more from him now, than I did when we were together. What is it with guys?
[Colt looks around him on the train]
Christina Warren: I gave notice.
Colter Stevens: Notice?
Christina Warren: Hey? Hey? You’re acting a little strange this morning. You okay?
[Colt doesn’t answer but instead listens to the other passengers talking]
Christina Warren: Sean, did I do something?
Colter Stevens: Look, I can see that you think you know me. But I don’t know who you are. My name is Captain Colter Stevens. I fly helicopters for the US army in Afghanistan.
[Christina laughs not believing him]
Christina Warren: Sean, that’s…
Colter Stevens: Sean?
[she looks at him smiling]
Colter Stevens: I feel sick.
[when he notices his own reflection in the train passenger window]
Colter Stevens: Did you see that?
[Christina shakes her head, confused]
Christina Warren: You’re kind of freaking me out right now.
[coming out of the train bathroom after he’s seen himself in the mirror and seen that he’s Sean Fentress’s]
Christina Warren: You all right?
Colter Stevens: I don’t know what’s goin’ on!
Christina Warren: Talk to me, Sean.
Colter Stevens: Look, I don’t know who Sean is and I don’t know who you are!
Christina Warren: Okay, we’ll get off at the next stop. We’ll figure out whatever is going on here. Okay?
Colter Stevens: This doesn’t belong to me!
[holding up Sean Fentres’s wallet he’d found in his suit pocket]
Christina Warren: Look at me. Everything’s going to be okay.
[suddenly the train explodes]
[after the train explosion Colt finds himself strapped to a seat in a dark area]
Colleen Goodwin: Captain Stevens, do you copy?
Colter Stevens: Where am I?
Colleen Goodwin: You are with Beleaguered Castle. Are you functional?
Colter Stevens: I’m dizzy. Did I…did I just a-lock?
Colleen Goodwin: Adjusting your rotation.
Colleen Goodwin: Can you report it this time?
Colter Stevens: What is this? What is this? Where…Who am I talking to?
Colleen Goodwin: Captain, report what you saw.
Colter Stevens: Uh…I don’t understand.
Colleen Goodwin: Where were you before you were talking to me?
Colter Stevens: There was an explosion.
Colleen Goodwin: Coming from where?
Colter Stevens: Colt is too confused to answer
Colleen Goodwin: Some confusion is perfectly normal at this stage, captain.
Colleen Goodwin: Do you have a visual signal?
[he looks around and sees a small monitor turn on showing Goodwin’s face]
Colter Stevens: Who are you?
Colleen Goodwin: You already have that information, captain.
Colter Stevens: I do?
Colleen Goodwin: Recall my name.
[she comes close to the monitor camera, Colt closes his eyes trying to remember]
Colleen Goodwin: Try to focus.
Colter Stevens: I…I was on a mission. I was flying and then I woke up on a train. Now I’m here. I need to briefed. Um, what…what unit is this?
Colleen Goodwin: You’re with Beleaguered Castle.
Colter Stevens: Who?
Colter Stevens: What…what…what is Beleaguered Castle?
Colleen Goodwin: The exercises will assist you.
[Goodwin is going through thread one of the exercises]
Colter Stevens: Is this is a red flag exercise?
Colleen Goodwin: End of thread one. Thread two; the following is a recording of a Western Screech Owl.
[Colt hears the screech of an owl]
Colleen Goodwin: End of thread two. End of pattern. Acknowledge.
Colter Stevens: Acknowledge end of pattern.
[after Colt has answered the questions from the pattern exercises]
Colleen Goodwin: Recall my name.
Colter Stevens: Goodwin. You’re name’s Goodwin.
Colleen Goodwin: That is correct. Welcome back, captain.
Colleen Goodwin: Who bombed the train, captain?
Colter Stevens: What?
Colleen Goodwin: Who bombed the train?
Colter Stevens: A woman kept calling me Sean.
Colleen Goodwin: That is incidental. Think, captain. Remember back. Who bombed the train?
Colter Stevens: I don’t know who bombed the God damn train!
Colleen Goodwin: Then go back and try again.
Colter Stevens: Back where?
Colleen Goodwin: You will have eight minutes. Same as last time.
Colter Stevens: No. No. No. No! No more bullshit SIM tests, okay? I need to know where I am. What is the location and condition of my crew? Does anybody know that I’m stateside? You are obligated to give me this information.
Colleen Goodwin: Start with the bomb. Where is it? What does it look like? What kind of explosive? How are the detonated?
Colter Stevens: Right.
Colleen Goodwin: Find the bomb and you will find the bomber.
Colter Stevens: Find the bomb. Wait! No! I…
[suddenly there’s a huge flash of lights and he’s sent back to the train]
[Colt wakes up back on the train]
Christina Warren: I took you advice. It was good advice. Thank you.
Colter Stevens: Okay. That’s good.
Christina Warren: And I signed up for an LSAT course. Next thing you know, I’ll be moving to India to find myself.
Colter Stevens: LSAT.
Christina Warren: Know any good gurus?
Christina Warren: So, what do you think? Am I on the right track?
[he looks at Christina]
Colter Stevens: It’s the same dream, but it’s different!
Christina Warren: Deep. I hope it’s different. I feel the same way.
[looking at his watch]
Colter Stevens: This looks so real!
Christina Warren: You know, I think it’s gonna be good for me to get as far away from him as possible.
[he reaches out and touches the seat next to Christina]
Colter Stevens: Unbelievable detail.
Colter Stevens: They wouldn’t put the doer in front of me.
Christina Warren: The doer?
Colter Stevens: You’re the pretty girl. The distraction.
Christina Warren: Distraction?
Colter Stevens: Every SIM has one.
Christina Warren: Are you talking about Brian?
[Colt grabs hold of the paper the passenger behind him is holding]
Colter Stevens: What are you late for?
Max Denoff: What?
Colter Stevens: You seemed concerned about the time? What are you late for?
Max Denoff: I’m reading about an asshole festival. I hear your headlining.
Colter Stevens: Oh, that’s funny. What are you a comedian?
Christina Warren: Yeah. He is a comedian.
Max Denoff: Sit down. Freak!
[Colt goes back to his seat]
Max Denoff: [to himself] Fans!
[when Colt gets back to his seat]
Christina Warren: That guy. He came in third on America’s Got Talent. I’ve seen it twice.
[as Colt is walking quickly past their row of seats to find the bomb]
Christina Warren: What’s with you?
Colter Stevens: I don’t have time to talk to you right now.
Max Denoff: I got time for you.
[when he finds the bomb on the train]
Colter Stevens: Goodwin, you need to tell me how to disarm this.
[there’s no response]
Colter Stevens: Uh…should I unplug it? Or do you want me to just leave it? Or…
[he gets no response]
Colter Stevens: Okay. Um…I’m just gonna leave it.
[looks up to see if he gets a response]
Colter Stevens: Okay?
[addressing the passengers on the train]
Colter Stevens: Ladies and Gentlemen. Transit Security.
[he quickly waves Sean Fentress’s wallet with his teacher ID card]
Max Denoff: No you’re not!
Colter Stevens: Due to a classified security breach we need all of you to turn off your personal electronic devices till we pull into the station. Okay? That means laptops, cell phones.
[pointing to male passenger talking on his cell]
Colter Stevens: Cell phone, sir? Cell phone, sir. Thank you very much.
[addressing all the passengers]
Colter Stevens: Pagers. Anything electronic. Thank you. It’s just a precautionary measure. Nothing to worry about.
Max Denoff: So which is it? Security breach or precautionary measure?
Colter Stevens: Is there a problem here, sir?
[addressing a male passenger wearing aviator glasses and working on his laptop]
Aviator Glasses Guy: I’m in the middle of a very big deal.
Christina Warren: Sean?
Colter Stevens: I need you to turn that off.
Aviator Glasses Guy: Why don’t you show me that ID again?
Christina Warren: Sean?
Colter Stevens: Turn it off.
[Colter slams the laptop shut]
Colter Stevens: Turn it off!
Aviator Glasses Guy: What is your problem, asshole?
[Colter punches the guy hard in the face]
Christina Warren: Sean! What are you doing?
[Colter points to a female passenger who is about to use her cell phone]
Colter Stevens: Not a good idea, Ma’am! Not a good idea.
[pointing to another male passenger trying to use his cell phone]
Colter Stevens: Woh! That’s not a good idea
Christina Warren: I think you broke his jaw!
Colter Stevens: It’s okay. He’s not any more real than you are.
Christina Warren: I’m not real?! How about next time you drive to work?
Colter Stevens: There’s not going to be a next time.
[suddenly there’s a huge explosion as the bomb goes off]
Colleen Goodwin: Did you find the bomb?
[catching his breath]
Colter Stevens: Yes.
[he looks down and sees liquid on the floor]
Colter Stevens: There’s hydraulic fluid all over the floor!
Colleen Goodwin: Uh…it’s not a concern, captain.
Colter Stevens: What is…
Colleen Goodwin: Tell me about the bomb.
Colter Stevens: Where’s that man? I saw a guy with a crutch on the monitor. He looks like he’s in charge. I wanna talk to him.
Colleen Goodwin: It’s irrelevant, captain.
Colter Stevens: [shouting] I want to talk to your commanding officer!
Colleen Goodwin: You can talk to him upon completion of your mission.
Colter Stevens: My mission is in Afghanistan, where my unit is. I flew two Goddamn swordies yesterday!
Colleen Goodwin: You’ve been with us for two months. Did you ID the bomber?
Colter Stevens: No! Where is my unit? And under who’s jurisdiction is this simulation?
Colleen Goodwin: Captain, this is not a simulation. Lives are depending on you.
Colter Stevens: What lives?
Colleen Goodwin: What do you remember about the bomb? Tell me about the detonator.
Colter Stevens: No, No! What lives? What are you talking about? I need to be briefed!
Colleen Goodwin: At seven forty eight this morning, central standard time, a bomb exploded on a commuter train outside of Chicago killing everyone on board. And that’s the train that you’ve been on.
Colter Stevens: No, no, no! I’m right here! You’re talkin’ to me right now!
Colleen Goodwin: A man named Sean Fentress was on that train. He, for all intents and purposes, is now…you. Every second spent explaining things puts more innocent civilians at risk.
Colter Stevens: This makes no sense.
Colleen Goodwin: The train explosion was the first attack of a series. There are going to be more. Now did you find the bomb?
Colter Stevens: In the rest room. The ventilation panel above the sink. Cell phone detonator. Are we done?
Colleen Goodwin: Uh…no. No. But that’s good. That’s very, very good, captain. Good.
Colleen Goodwin: Do you remember a freight train passing by, just before the explosion?
Colter Stevens: Yes.
Colleen Goodwin: The explosion was timed to engulf the passing freight train, which means the bomber had to be watching both trains when the call was made. Fifty two callers. One of those is our bomber. I want you to concentrate on the passengers in your car. Get to know them. Narrow the suspect pool. Look for ones who seem…uh, quite or withdrawn. Who seem nervous. As always you will have eight minutes.
Colter Stevens: Eight minutes, and then I blow up again?
Colleen Goodwin: Yes. I need you to discipline yourself on this next path. Perform only the task that we assign you. Everything else is irrelevant.
[Colter is sent back to the train where he wakes up again sat opposite Christine]
Christina Warren: I took your advice. It was very good advice.
[Colter takes off his jacket sets watch to time eight minutes]
Christina Warren: You’re kind of quiet today.
Colter Stevens: Just got a lot on my mind.
[as she made sure the woman who was about to spill coffee on Colter was ok]
Colter Stevens: That was very kind of you. You’re very decent.
Christina Warren: Thank you.
Colter Stevens: You’re real.
Colter Stevens: How’s everything today?
Conductor: It’s good.
Colter Stevens: Anything out of the ordinary?
Conductor: [confused] No.
Colter Stevens: I meant uh…behavior on the train. Is anything…anybody seem strange to you?
Conductor: You’re a little strange.
Colter Stevens: How about you, does anybody look suspicious?
Christina Warren: Are you dunk or something?
Colter Stevens: Come here?
[she looks at him confused]
Colter Stevens: Just for a second.
[she looks at him suspiciously]
Colter Stevens: Come on!
[she comes over and sits next to him]
Colter Stevens: Just think of it as a game.
Christina Warren: A game? Wow!
[she looks around at the other passengers]
Christina Warren: There all so utterly normal, Sean. That’s what so terrifying about them. Maybe there’s a team at work.
[she looks around referring to the passengers she sees]
Christina Warren: The sleeping giant coach. The minister Sudoku. Don’t forget the sullen college kid, he’s expendable. But they’re all controlled by the conductor. Standing there all dictatorial, demanding tickets.
Colter Stevens: You’re funny.
Colter Stevens: What about that guy?
Christina Warren: Deposition.
Colter Stevens: What about the woman sitting across from him?
Christina Warren: Hair appointment, every Monday. You know this. You talk to these people more than I do.
[when Colter notices a male passenger come out of the bathroom]
Colter Stevens: Did anyone else come out of that bathroom?
Christina Warren: Well, I saw you comin’ out of there.
Colter Stevens: Me?
Christina Warren: Yes!
Colter Stevens: No!
[Christina gives him a strange look]
Colter Stevens: Me?
[when the last call for the train to move from their stop is made]
Colter Stevens: Hey! Hey! Come with me?
Christina Warren: This isn’t our stop.
Colter Stevens: Oh, come on! Let’s take a walk?
Christina Warren: We don’t get off here.
Colter Stevens: I know. It’ll just be spontaneous.
Christina Warren: You’re kind of freaking me out!
[he suddenly leans in and kisses her on the mouth]
Colter Stevens: I know this is gonna sound really weird, but I have a really bad feeling about this train and I think that we should get off. Okay? So get your stuff.
[confronting the passenger he’s followed since getting off the train]
Colter Stevens: Feeling sick?
Hazmi: It’s motion sickness. I get it all the time.
Colter Stevens: Excuse me.
Hazmi: Excuse you!
[Colter sits very close to the passenger making him move along the bench]
Hazmi: Were you following me?
Colter Stevens: Can I borrow your phone?
Hazmi: No. I don’t have one.
Colter Stevens: Sure?
Hazmi: Yeah, I’m sure. Look, why don’t you leave me alone please? Or I’ll call the police.
Colter Stevens: With what? I thought you said you didn’t have a phone?
[the passenger gets up to leave]
Hazmi: You know, you have no right.
[suddenly Colter attacks him]
[he’s back in the strange looking cockpit after nearly being killed on the train tracks]
Colter Stevens: I think the oxygen just went out!
[the power goes down and he’s in darkness]
Colter Stevens: Goodwin? Goodwin?!
Dr. Rutledge: It’s hard to say exactly what he’s going through.
[back in the cockpit Colter is desperately trying to open the door]
Colleen Goodwin: Sir?
Dr. Rutledge: Please! There’s not a whole lot we can do from here.
[referring to not being able to contact Colter]
Colleen Goodwin: If nothing changes, have much time does he have?
Dr. Rutledge: Some. But not a lot.
[after he’s got the monitor back working]
Colter Stevens: This is Captain Stevens, do you copy?
Dr. Rutledge: Captain Steven?
Colter Stevens: The capsule lost power.
Dr. Rutledge: The…capsule? Is that where you are right now, captain? In a capsule?
Colter Stevens: You should know. Who are you?
Dr. Rutledge: Let me get Captain Goodwin.
[he turns his face from the monitor and calls for Goodwin]
Colter Stevens: You invented this thing, right?
Dr. Rutledge: I did.
Colter Stevens: But ar…are you in command here?
Dr. Rutledge: I am. Were you able to locate the information we need, captain?
Colter Stevens: That is a negative, sir. I was unable to find the bomber, but I did save a…a passenger on the train. I got her off safely. A woman.
Colleen Goodwin: Captain, it is going to be counterproductive for you to try to save anyone on that train. They are outside submission.
Colter Stevens: Well…but she survived. And maybe the rest could too.
Dr. Rutledge: She survived, but only inside the Source Code. None of them can be saved.
Colter Stevens: What is…what is the Source Code?
Dr. Rutledge: It’s uh…quantum mechanics, parabola calculus. It’s uh…it’s…it’s very complicated.
Colter Stevens: Try me!
Dr. Rutledge: Fine. Uh…when a light bulb turns off, there’s an afterglow, a lingering halo-like effect. You seen it?
Colter Stevens: Yes.
Dr. Rutledge: Of course. The brain is like that. It’s electromagnetic field remains charged, just briefly, even after death. Circuits remain open. Now, there’s another peculiarity about the brain. It contains a short term memory track, that’s approximately eight minutes long. Like uh…a convenient store security camera that only records the last portion of the day’s activity on its hard drive. Now in combining these two phenomena, circuitry that remain viable post-mortem, and a memory bank that goes back eight minutes, Source Code enables us to capitalize on the overlap. Sean Fentress died on that train. Of all the passengers aboard, he was your possible link. You two share compatibility in terms of gender, body size and your synaptic maps.
Colter Stevens: What happens after the eight minutes?
Dr. Rutledge: After? Nothing. You seize to exist on the train. You cannot exist inside the Source Code beyond Fentress’s eight minutes. Source Code is not time travel. Rather, Source Code is time reassignment. It gives us access to a parallel reality. Now the deaths on that train were a tragedy, but Source Code empowers us…
Colter Stevens: No, but I… I saved one person. That girl that’s always sitting across from me. I pulled her off the train.
Colleen Goodwin: Give me her name?
Colter Stevens: Christina. I uh…I…I don’t remember her last name.
Colleen Goodwin: Her name is Christina Warren.
[he sees the picture of her Christina’s ID on the monitor]
Colter Stevens: Yes.
Colleen Goodwin: She was twenty eight.
Colter Stevens: That’s her.
Colleen Goodwin: Born in Bellmont, Illinois. Died this morning on the train.
Colter Stevens: No. I pulled her off. She’s fine.
Dr. Rutledge: No, she isn’t.
Colter Stevens: Believe me, she is!
Dr. Rutledge: Well, believe me!
Colter Stevens: She saw me get hit by the express train.
Colleen Goodwin: This isn’t getting us anywhere.
Colleen Goodwin: A second attack is imminent, Dr. Rutledge.
Colter Stevens: What second attack?
Dr. Rutledge: The train was just the beginning. A letter of intent.
Colter Stevens: I’m sorry. Wha…what…what aren’t you telling me here?
Colleen Goodwin: We have information that downtown Chicago is the next target. And they’re planning to detonate a dirty bomb.
Dr. Rutledge: Do you have any idea how many people will die if explosion of that magnitude were to occur in a city? We’re evacuating as we speak. We have to stop it before it happens. Do you understand?
Colleen Goodwin: If you find the bomber, this second attack, the real attack we think, can be prevented. We have very little time left. Out here the clocks only move in one direction.
[to Colter, just before he’s sent back to the train]
Colleen Goodwin: On the upper deck of the next carriage there’s a conductors compartment. It’s a small office containing a strong box. Inside is a loaded hand gun. Get to it. You are authorized to use whatever force is necessary.
Colter Stevens: You’re still here.
Christina Warren: Of course I am! Guess what?
Colter Stevens: You quit your job and you’re enrolled in an LSAT course.
Christina Warren: Good guess!
[predicting the next things that happens]
Colter Stevens: Soda can.
[the passenger behind him opens a soda can]
Colter Stevens: Coffee spill.
[the female passenger that passes by him spills her coffee on his shoe]
Colter Stevens: Listen to me. Don’t answer this.
[he picks up her cell phone that’s just about to ring]
Colter Stevens: You deserve better than that guy. Everything looks more beautiful in retrospect, doesn’t it?
[he hold up his ticket for the conductor before he’s asked to see it]
Christina Warren: How did you know that was…?
Colter Stevens: How well do you know me?
Christina Warren: Not that well, apparently.
Colter Stevens: Do you know me well enough that if I did something that looked a little strange, and was maybe even a little bit dangerous, but I told you to trust me anyway, that you could do that?
Christina Warren: No.
Colter Stevens: Wow! That was honest.
[he get up from his seat and takes off his jacket]
Colter Stevens: You’re beautiful. You’re kind. And you’re painfully honest.
Christina Warren: Who are you? And what did you do with Sean Fentress?
[walking away from her]
Colter Stevens: It’s the new me!
[as Colter becomes conscious and finds himself handcuffed]
Christina Warren: Is it true that you tried to steal a gun out of the train’s security box?
Train Official: Be careful, Ma’am.
[Colter tries to free himself from the handcuffs]
Colter Stevens: Dammit!
Christina Warren: What were you thinking?
Colter Stevens: Can I borrow your phone?
Christina Warren: No! You need to go to the hospital, Sean.
Colter Stevens: Please! Please! Let me borrow your phone?
Christina Warren: No! Why do you want my phone?
Colter Stevens: What would you do if you only had eight minutes left to live?
Christina Warren: I don’t know.
Colter Stevens: I would call my dad. I would hear his voice. And I would…I’d tell him I’m sorry.
Colter Stevens: Tell me everything gonna be okay.
[looks at him confused]
Christina Warren: Everything’s gonna be okay.
[just then the train explodes]
[Colter is back in the strange looking cockpit]
Colter Stevens: [sarcastically] Oh, yeah, the gun in the strong box. That was a really great idea. Thanks for that.
Colleen Goodwin: Did you make any progress?
Colter Stevens: Can I get access to a phone? I need to talk to my father.
Colleen Goodwin: I will try to work on that soon, yes. I will try.
