Dr. John Cawley: Didn’t McPherson tell you the good news?
Teddy Daniels: No. What’s the good news, doctor?
Dr. John Cawley: Rachel’s been found. She’s here. Safe and sound.
[in Rachel’s cell, Teddy and Chuck watch Rachel with Cawley beside her]
Chuck Aule: Not a mark on her.
Rachel 1: Who are these men? Why are they in my house?
Dr. John Cawley: Police Officers, Rachel. They have a few questions.
Teddy Daniels: Ma’am, there’s been a citing of a known communist subversive in this area, passing out literature.
Rachel 1: Here? In this neighborhood?
Teddy Daniels: Yes, I’m afraid so. Now, if you could tell us what you did yesterday, where you were, it would really help us narrow down our search.
Rachel 1: Yes. Um…well I, um…I made breakfast for Jim and the children and then I packed Jim’s lunch and he left. And I send the children off to school. And then…I decided to take a long swim in the lake.
Teddy Daniels: I see. And after that?
Rachel 1: Um…after that, I thought of you.
Teddy Daniels: I’m…I’m sorry ma’am. I…I don’t know what you’re taking about.
Rachel 1: Don’t you know how lonely I’ve been, Jim? You’re gone…you’re dead. I cry every night.
[she starts crying]
Rachel 1: How am I supposed to survive?
[puts her arms round Teddy and stars sobbing]
[holding a sobbing Rachel in his arms]
Teddy Daniels: Rachel, it’ll be all right. I’m so sorry, but everything’s going to be all right, okay?
[she suddenly jumps out of his arms]
Rachel 1: I buried you! I buried an empty casket. You’re body rigged down, lumps of flesh flashing into the sea eaten by sharks. My Jim’s dead, so who the fuck are you? Who the fuck are you?! Who are you?! Who are you?!
[attacks Teddy and the orderlies grab her, pushing her away from Teddy]
Dr. John Cawley: I’m sorry about that. I…I didn’t want to interrupt, I thought she might tell you something. We found her down by the lighthouse skipping stones. We’ve no idea how she got out, but I’m gonna have to ask you to go down into the basement. There’s food, water, cots. It’s the safest place to be when the hurricane hits. Are you all right? You look pale.
Teddy Daniels: I’m fine. It’s just uh…
Chuck Aule: Boss, you okay?
Teddy Daniels: It’s so…so Goddamn bright isn’t it?
Dr. John Cawley: Photosensitivity, headaches sometimes. Marshal, are you having a migraine?
Teddy Daniels: I’ll be all right.
[Teddy then reels, almost falling, Chuck catches him]
Chuck Aule: What’s wrong with him?
Dr. John Cawley: Take these Marshal, couple of hours you’ll be clear as a bell.
Chuck Aule: What’s wrong with him?
Dr. John Cawley: He’s having a migraine. Imagine someone sawed open your head, filled it with razors and shook it as hard as they could. Take the pills, Marshal.
Teddy Daniels: No. I don’t want the pills.
Dr. John Cawley: It’ll stop the pain. Marshal, take the pills.
[Teddy takes the pills]
[Chuck and Trey drag Teddy to one of the cots in the basement. Teddy notices a uniformed guard staring at him]
Teddy Daniels: Who is that?
Trey Washington: Him? That’s the Warden. Don’t you worry about him. All right?
[Trey and Chuck put Teddy’s legs up on the cot helping him to lie down]
Teddy Daniels: Looks like an ex-military prick.
Trey Washington: You know I ain’t gonna argue with you on that one.
[Teddy almost smiles and then falls asleep]
[Teddy’s dream; he’s in Dachau he comes across frozen corpses, his eyes catch the corpse of a dead woman and her child, the dead women changes to Rachel Solando and then suddenly the little girl’s eyes open and she sits up]
Little Girl: You should have saved me. You should have saved all of us.
[Teddy’s dream; he’s in Cawely’s house, a man is sitting in a wing chair with his back to Teddy, when Teddy gets close to him he sees that it’s a man with a scar on his face and he has different colored eyes]
Laeddis: Hey buddy! Hey!
Teddy Daniels: Laeddis?
[Laeddis light a match and looks at it]
Laeddis: Very pretty. No hard feelings, right?
[Teddy has a cigarette in his mouth and Laeddis leans close to lights it]
Laeddis: No hard feelings.
[Laeddis opens his coat revealing a whiskey flask]
Laeddis: Little something for later. Cause I know how much you need it.
[Laeddis changes to Chuck holding the whiskey flask]
Chuck Aule: Clocks ticking my friend. We’re running out of time.
[Teddy’s dream; at Cawley house, he hears a woman scream, he turns to see Rachel Solando splattered with blood]
Rachel 1: Give me a hand here?
[he looks down to see three dead children at her feet, two boys and the girl from Dachau]
Teddy Daniels: I…I could get into trouble.
[he picks up the girl and carries her]
Little Girl: I’m dead.
Teddy Daniels: I’m so sorry.
Little Girl: Why didn’t you save me?
Teddy Daniels: I tried…I wanted to, but by the time I got there it was too late.
[Teddy’s by the edge of a lake, Rachel joins him as he puts the girl into the lake, the two boys are also floating in the water]
Rachel 1: See? Aren’t they beautiful?
[Teddy watches as the girl sinks into the water, she stares at him. her mouth open as she sinks. Teddy then bolts upright waking from his dream]
[Teddy’s woken up from his dream, he looks around and sees everyone asleep, he then hears someone come in through the nearby door. It’s Dolores looking dripping wet from the rain]
Teddy Daniels: Why are you all wet, baby?
Dolores Chanal: Laeddis isn’t dead. He isn’t gone. He’s still here
Teddy Daniels: I know.
Dolores Chanal: You need to find him, Teddy. You need to find him and you kill him, Teddy.
[Teddy and Chuck emerge from the hospital to find the storm has put everything into chaos]
Teddy Daniels: You think the whole electrical system is fried?
Chuck Aule: I’d say it’s a good possibility, yeah.
Teddy Daniels: The electronic security…fences, the gates, the doors.
Chuck Aule: Nice day for a stroll don’t you think? To Ward C for example. Maybe we’ll run into Andrew Laeddis.
[to Chuck, referring to Ward C]
Teddy Daniels: The guy I told you about, George Noyce, he told me this is where they keep the worse ones. Guys even the other inmates are scared of.
[walking in one of the corridors in Ward C, Teddy and Chuck run into a guard]
Ward C Guard: First time on Ward C, huh?
Chuck Aule: Yeah.
Teddy Daniels: Yeah, yeah. We heard stories.
Ward C Guard: Trust me son, you haven’t heard shit.
[in Ward C Teddy and Chuck get close to an iron gate, they hear screams echoing]
Teddy Daniels: He’s here. Laeddis. I can feel him.
[a Ward C inmate has caught Teddy and he’s strangling him]
Inmate: Listen to me. Listen, I don’t wanna leave here, all right? I mean, why would anybody want to? We hear things here about the outside world. About atolls, about H-bomb tests. Do you know how a hydrogen bomb works?
Teddy Daniels: [chocking] With hydrogen…with hydrogen!
Inmate: Huh…that’s funny.
[Chuck is looking for Teddy through the gates]
Chuck Aule: Boss?
Inmate: Other bombs explode, huh! But not the hydrogen bomb. It implodes, creating an explosion of the thousandth, the millionth degree. Do you get it?
Teddy Daniels: Yes! Yeah!
Inmate: Do you?
Teddy Daniels: I get it! I get it!
Chuck Aule: Let him go!
[as Chuck finds them Teddy slams back with his heel and attacks the inmate]
[Teddy hears a man whisper as he’s walking past the prison cell in Ward C]
George Noyce: You told me I’d be free of this place. You promised. You lied.
[Teddy lights a match to see better and gets close to a cell where a man is sitting on his cot with his face hidden in shadow]
Teddy Daniels: Laeddis? Laeddis?
[the man laughs]
George Noyce: That’s pretty damn funny.
Teddy Daniels: Your voice…
George Noyce: Don’t you recognize it? After all the talks we had? After all the lies you told me?
Teddy Daniels: Let me see your face.
George Noyce: They say I’m theirs now. They say I’ll never leave here. Your match is about to go out.
Teddy Daniels: Let me see your Goddamn face now!
George Noyce: Why? So you can lie to me more? This isn’t about the truth.
Teddy Daniels: Yes it is. It’s about exposing the truth.
George Noyce: It’s about you! And Laeddis. That’s all it’s ever been about. I was incidental. A way in.
Teddy Daniels: Geor…George Noyce? No, it’s not possible. You can’t be here…
[George comes closer to Teddy and shows him his face which looks like he’s been beaten]
George Noyce: Do you like it?
Teddy Daniels: Who did this to you, George?
George Noyce: You did.
Teddy Daniels: What the hell do you mean?
[George knocks the match out of Teddy’s hand]
George Noyce: [angrily] All your talk! All you fucking talk! And I’m back in here because of you.
Teddy Daniels: George, how did they get you out of Dedham, huh? How did this happen? I…I’m gonna find a way to fix this. You understand me?
George Noyce: I’ll never get out now. I got out once. Not twice. Never Twice.
Teddy Daniels: Just tell me how they got you here?
George Noyce: They knew! Don’t you get it? Everything you were up to. Your whole plan. This is a game. All of this, it’s for you. You’re not investigating anything. You’re a fucking rat in a maze.
Teddy Daniels: George…George, you’re wrong. You’re wrong.
George Noyce: Really? Been alone much since you got here?
Teddy Daniels: I’ve been with my partner.
George Noyce: You never worked with him before, have you?
Teddy Daniels: He’s a…he’s a U.S. Marshal.
George Noyce: You never worked with him before, have you?
Teddy Daniels: George, look I now people. I trust this man.
George Noyce: Then they’ve already won.
George Noyce: [sobbing] You fuck. They’re gonna take me to the lighthouse. They’re gonna cut into my brain. And I’m only here because of you!
Teddy Daniels: George, I’m…I’m gonna get you out of here. You’re not going to the lighthouse. You’re not.
George Noyce: You can’t dig out the truth and kill Laeddis at the same time. You…you gotta make a choice. You understand that, don’t you?
Teddy Daniels: I’m not here to kill anyone.
George Noyce: Liar!
Teddy Daniels: I’m not gonna kill him. I swear to you. I swear.
George Noyce: She’s dead. Just let her go. Let her go.
[suddenly Dolores emerges from behind George]
Dolores Chanal: Tell him, Teddy. Tell him why.
George Noyce: You gotta do it. There’s no other way. Let her go.
[Teddy stares in shock at Dolores as she walks towards him, ignoring George]
Dolores Chanal: Tell him about the day you brought me my locket.
George Noyce: You gotta do it.
Dolores Chanal: How I told you how my heart was breaking and you asked me why
George Noyce: She’s fu…fucking with your head!
Dolores Chanal: And I told you it was from happiness.
George Noyce: She’s gonna kill you. She’s gonna kill you. You wanna uncover the truth? You gotta let her go.
Teddy Daniels: I can’t.
[shouting at Teddy]
George Noyce: You have to let her go!
Teddy Daniels: I can’t! I can’t!
George Noyce: Then you’ll never leave this island.
Teddy Daniels: Dolores…
[Dolores has vanished]
George Noyce: He’s not in this ward. He was transferred out of here. If he’s not in Ward A, then there’s only one place he can be.
Teddy Daniels: The lighthouse.
[just as about Teddy turns to leave]
George Noyce: Hey. God help you.
[after getting out of Ward C]
Teddy Daniels: What happened to you?
Chuck Aule: What do you mean?
Teddy Daniels: Where were you?
Chuck Aule: After we got that guy in to the infirmary, I took a little detour, to patient records. Did you ever find Laeddis?
Teddy Daniels: No. No, I never found him.
Chuck Aule: Well, I got the next best thing. His intake form. The only thing in his file. There’s no session notes, no incident reports, no photograph. Just this. It was weird. Here take a look.
Teddy Daniels: I’ll look at it later.
[Chuck is looking suspicious]
Chuck Aule: What’s the matter, boss?
Teddy Daniels: I’ll look it over later, that’s all.
Teddy Daniels: I’m going to that lighthouse. I’m going to find out what the fuck is happening on this island.
Chuck Aule: What are we doing? We got the intake form. It’s proof there’s a sixty seventh patient which they said repeatedly he doesn’t exist.
Teddy Daniels: I’m getting to that lighthouse. You understand?
Chuck Aule: What the hell can I say to you to stop you.
Teddy Daniels: Why…why would you want to, Chuck? Why?
Chuck Aule: Because climbing down there when it’s dark, is a thin step short of suicide. That’s why.
Teddy Daniels: Okay, maybe you better sit this one out then.
Chuck Aule: You brought me into this, boss. And now we’re trapped here. On this rock. On this island. With no one to rely on but each other and now you’re…acting like…
Teddy Daniels: Like what? Like what? How am I acting?
Chuck Aule: What the hell happened back there in those cells, Ted?
Teddy Daniels: What do you think the weather’s like in Portland, Chuck?
Chuck Aule: I’m from Seattle.
Teddy Daniels: Seattle. I’m going on. Alone.
Chuck Aule: I’m going with you, boss.
Teddy Daniels: I said alone.
Chuck Aule: [reluctantly] Fine.
[Teddy sets off to find a way to the lighthouse]
[after losing Chuck on the rocks, Teddy enters a cave at the bottom of the rocks and he sees a woman inside]
Rachel 2: Who are you?
Teddy Daniels: I’m Teddy Daniels. I’m a cop.
Rachel 2: You’re the Marshal.
Teddy Daniels: That’s right. Would you mind taking your hand from behind you back, please?
Rachel 2: Why? Why?
Teddy Daniels: I wanna make sure that what you’re holding won’t hurt me.
[she brings her hand forward, she’s holding a knife]
Rachel 2: I’m going to keep this, if you don’t mind.
Teddy Daniels: Fine by me.
Teddy Daniels: You’re…you’re Rachel Solando? The real one?
[Rachel nods her head]
Teddy Daniels: Did you kill your children?
Rachel 2: I never had children. I was never married. And before I was a patient at Ashecliffe I worked here.
Teddy Daniels: You…you were a nurse?
Rachel 2: I was a doctor, Marshal.
[Teddy looks at her cautiously]
Rachel 2: You think I’m crazy?
Teddy Daniels: No. No, no I…
Rachel 2: And if I say I’m not crazy. But that hardly helps, does it? That’s a Kafkaesque genius of it. People tell the world you’re crazy and all you’re protests to the contrary just confirm what they’re saying.
Teddy Daniels: I’m not following you. I’m sorry.
Rachel 2: Once you’re declared insane, and anything you do is called part of that insanity. Reasonable protests are ‘denial’. Valid fears ‘paranoia’.
Teddy Daniels: Survival instincts are ‘defense mechanisms’.
Rachel 2: You’re smarter than you look, Marshal. That’s probably not a good thing.
Teddy Daniels: Tell me something?
Rachel 2: Yeah?
Teddy Daniels: What happened to you?
Rachel 2: I started asking about these large shipments of Sodium Amytal and opium-based hallucinogens.
Teddy Daniels: Psychotropic drugs.
Rachel 2: I asked about the surgeries too. You ever heard of a trans orbital lobotomy? They sap the patient with electric shock, then go through the eye with an ice pick, pull out some nerve fibers. Makes the patients much more obedient. Tractable. It’s barbaric. Unconscionable.
Rachel 2: Do you know how pain enters the body, Marshal? Do you?
Teddy Daniels: Depends on where you hurt.
Rachel 2: No. It has nothing to do with the flesh. The brain controls pain. The brain controls fear, empathy, sleep, hunger, anger. Everything. What if you could control it?
Teddy Daniels: You mean the brain?
Rachel 2: Recreate a man so he doesn’t feel pain. Or love. Or sympathy. A man who can’t be interrogated because he has no memories to confess.
Teddy Daniels: You can never take away all of man’s memories. Never.
Rachel 2: Marshal, the North Koreans used American P.O.W’s during they’re brain washing experiments. They turned soldiers into traitors. That’s what they’re doing here. They’re creating ghosts to go out into the world and do things sane men…sane men never would.
Teddy Daniels: To have that kind of ability, that kind of knowledge, that…that would take years…
Rachel 2: Years of research. Hundreds of patients to experiment on. Fifty years from now, people will look back and say here, this place, is where it all began. The Nazis used the Jews, Soviets used prisoners in their own gulags. And we…we tested patients on Shutter Island.
Teddy Daniels: No they won’t. No.
Rachel 2: You do understand that they won’t let you leave.
Teddy Daniels: I am a Federal Marshal, they can’t stop me.
Rachel 2: I was an esteemed psychiatrist from a respected family. It didn’t matter. Let me ask you, any past trauma’s in your life?
Teddy Daniels: Yes. Why…why would that matter?
Rachel 2: Because they can point at some event in your past and say that’s the reason you lost your sanity. So that when they commit you here, your friends and colleagues will say ‘of course he cracked. Well, who wouldn’t after what he’d been through.’
Teddy Daniels: They can say that about anyone. Anyone at all.
Rachel 2: The point is they’re going to say it about you.
Rachel 2: How’s your head?
Teddy Daniels: My…my head?
Rachel 2: Any funny dreams lately? Trouble sleeping? Headaches?
Teddy Daniels: I…I am prone to migraines. Yes.
Rachel 2: Jesus. You haven’t taken any pills, have you? I mean even aspirin?
Teddy Daniels: The…the aspirin…
Rachel 2: Jesus. And you…you ate the food in the cafeteria and drunk the coffee they gave you? You tell me at least that you’ve been smoking your own cigarettes.
Teddy Daniels: No. No. No, I haven’t.
Rachel 2: It takes thirty-six to forty-eight hours for neuroleptic narcotics to reach workable levels to the bloodstream. Palsy comes first. First the fingertips then eventually the whole hand.
Rachel 2: Seen any walking nightmares lately, Marshal? Huh?
Teddy Daniels: Tell me what goes on in that lighthouse? Tell me?
Rachel 2: Brain surgery. The ‘let’s open the skull and see what happens if we pull on this’ kind. The ‘learned it from the Nazis’ kind. It’s where they create the ghost.
Teddy Daniels: Who knows about this? On the island I mean, who?
Rachel 2: Everyone.
Teddy Daniels: Ah, come on! The nurses, the-the-the orderlies? They…they couldn’t possibly know.
Rachel 2: Everyone.
[shaking Teddy awake]
Rachel 2: You can’t stay here. They think I’m dead, that I drowned. I’m afraid if they come looking for you they might find me. I’m sorry, but you have to go.
Teddy Daniels: I’m gonna come back for you.
Rachel 2: I won’t be here. I move during the day and new places every night.
Teddy Daniels: But I could come get you, get you off this island.
Rachel 2: Haven’t you heard a word I’ve said. The only way off the island is the ferry, and they control it. You’ll never leave here.
Teddy Daniels: I had a friend. I was with him yesterday, but we got separated. Have you seen him?
Rachel 2: Marshal, you have not friends.
[Warden has found Teddy walking on the compound and he’s driving him back to the hospital]
Warden: Taking a leisurely stroll, were we?
Teddy Daniels: I was uh…just…just looking around.
Warden: Did you enjoy God’s latest gift?
Teddy Daniels: What?
Warden: God’s gift.
[points to the sky]
Warden: The violence. When I came downstairs in my home and I saw a tree in my living room, it reached out for me like a divine hand. God loves violence.
Teddy Daniels: I…I hadn’t noticed.
Warden: Sure you have. Why else would there be so much of it? It’s in us. It’s what we are. We wage war, we burn sacrifices and pillage and plunder and tear at the flesh of our brothers. And why? Because God gave us violence to wage in his honor.
Teddy Daniels: I thought God gave us moral order.
Warden: There’s no moral order as pure as this storm. There’s no moral order at all. There’s just this; can my violence conquer yours?
Teddy Daniels: I’m not violent.
Warden: Yes, you are. You’re as violent as they come. I know this because I’m as violent as they come. With the constraints of society we’re lifted. And I was all that stood between you and me? You would crack my skull and eat my meaty parts. Wouldn’t you? But Cawley thinks that you’re harmless, that you can be controlled. But I know different.
Teddy Daniels: You don’t know me.
Warden: Oh, but I do.
Teddy Daniels: No, you don’t. You don’t know me at all.
Warden: Oh, I know you. We’ve known each other for centuries.
[Warden stops the jeep outside the hospital and leans close to Teddy]
Warden: If I was to sink my teeth into your eye right now, would you be able to stop me before I blinded you?
Teddy Daniels: Give it a try.
Warden: That’s the spirit.
[Teddy refers to the doctors, nurses, orderlies and patients that have just emerged from the conference room]
Teddy Daniels: Big meeting?
Dr. John Cawley: Oh yes. Apparently there was an unidentified man in Ward C yesterday. He subdued a highly dangerous patient quite handily.
Teddy Daniels: Is that so.
Dr. John Cawley: It seems he had a long conversation with a paranoid schizophrenic, George Noyce.
Teddy Daniels: This Noyce, you said his name was? He’s uh…delusional ?
Dr. John Cawley: Oh extremely. He can be quite upsetting. As a matter of fact two weeks ago a patient got so wound up by one of Noyce’s stories that he beat him up.
Dr. John Cawley: So you’re taking the ferry?
Teddy Daniels: Yes, absolutely. I uh…I think we’ve gotten all we came here for.
Dr. John Cawley: ‘We’, Marshal?
Teddy Daniels: Speaking of which, have you…have you seen him doctor?
Dr. John Cawley: Who?
Teddy Daniels: My partner, Chuck.
Dr. John Cawley: You don’t have a partner, Marshal. You came here alone. You know, I’ve built something valuable here, and valuable things have a way of misunderstood in their own time. Everyone wants a quick fix, they always have. I’m trying to do something, people, yourself included, don’t understand and I’m not gonna give up without a fight.
Teddy Daniels: I can see that.
Dr. John Cawley: So tell me again about your partner.
Teddy Daniels: What partner?
[Teddy is trying to find a way to sneak out of the hospital when he runs into Naehring]
Dr. Jeremiah Naehring: Marshal. You going somewhere?
Teddy Daniels: Uh…just uh…just heading out to the ferry. So…
Dr. Jeremiah Naehring: Oh, I’m afraid…I’m afraid it’s the other way.
Teddy Daniels: Oh.
Dr. Jeremiah Naehring: If you wait a moment I’ll find you someone who can take you to the dock.
[Naehring gets an injection needle from his pocket and Teddy grabs it from him]
Teddy Daniels: What’s this, doctor? Huh? What’s this?
[Teddy holds Naehring against a wall with the needle pointed at him threateningly]
Dr. Jeremiah Naehring: It’s just…it’s just a sedative. A precaution.
Teddy Daniels: Ah…precaution.
[Naehring starts to laugh]
Dr. Jeremiah Naehring: What are you going to do? Kill me? Marshal.
Teddy Daniels: You don’t think you deserve it?
Dr. Jeremiah Naehring: For what? Hm? Provoking you? Well, forgive me. What doesn’t provoke you? Remarks? Words?
Teddy Daniels: Nazis.
Dr. Jeremiah Naehring: Well, that too. And of course memories. Dreams. Did you know that the word trauma comes from the Greek for wound? What is the German word for dream? Träume. Ein ist träume. Words cannot create monsters. You…you are wounded, Marshal. Wouldn’t you agree, when you see a monster you must stop it?
Teddy Daniels: Yeah. I agree.
Dr. Jeremiah Naehring: Yes.
[Teddy suddenly stabs Naehring in the arm with the injection]
[Teddy’s found a car outside the hospital, he gets into the passenger seat]
Dolores Chanal: What are you doing, baby? You gotta get to the ferry.
Teddy Daniels: No. No…No.
Teddy Daniels: If the world thinks Chuck is dead, then he’s perfect for their experiments. There’s only one place they’d take him.
[looks over to the lighthouse]
Dolores Chanal: You go there and you’ll die.
Teddy Daniels: He’s my partner. If they’re hurting him, if they’re holding him against his will, I’ve gotta bring him out. I can’t lose anyone else.
Dolores Chanal: Don’t go, Teddy. Please. Please don’t do this. Don’t go.
Teddy Daniels: I’m sorry, honey. I love this thing because you gave it to me.
[he looks down at the tie he’s holding in his hand]
Teddy Daniels: But the truth is, it is one fucking ugly tie.
[he stuffs the tie in to the petrol tank of the car, sets it on fire and runs like hell]
[Teddy breaks into the top room in the lighthouse, he sees Cawley sitting behind a desk]
Dr. John Cawley: Why’re you all wet, baby?
Teddy Daniels: What did you say?
Dr. John Cawley: You know exactly what I said.
[Teddy goes round checking the room with his rifle in hand]
Dr. John Cawley: The rifle’s empty by the way.
[Teddy checks the rifle chamber and sees it’s empty]
Dr. John Cawley: Have a seat. For God’s sake dry off, you’ll catch cold.
Teddy Daniels: All right.
Dr. John Cawley: How badly did you hurt the guard?
Teddy Daniels: I…I don’t know what you’re talking about.
[Cawley makes a radio call]
Dr. John Cawley: Yes, he’s here. Have Dr. Sheehan take a look at your man before you send him up.
Teddy Daniels: So, Dr. Sheehan came in on the ferry this morning?
Dr. John Cawley: Not exactly. You blew up my car. I really loved that car.
Teddy Daniels: Sorry to hear about that.
Dr. John Cawley: Tremors are getting pretty bad. How are the hallucinations?
[suddenly Teddy hears Dolores]
Dolores Chanal: Get out of here, Teddy. This place is gonna be the end of you.
Teddy Daniels: Not bad.
Dr. John Cawley: They’ll get worse.
Teddy Daniels: I know. Dr. Solando, she told me about the neuroleptics.
Dr. John Cawley: Did she now? And when was this?
Teddy Daniels: I found her, doctor. In a cave out by the cliffs, but you’ll never get to her.
Dr. John Cawley: I don’t doubt it. Considering she’s not real.
Dr. John Cawley: You’re delusions are more severe than I thought. You’re not on neuroleptics. You’re not on anything as a matter of fact.
Teddy Daniels: Then what the fuck is this?
[Teddy holds out his hand which is trembling]
Teddy Daniels: Huh? What the fuck is this?
Dr. John Cawley: Withdrawal.
Teddy Daniels: With…withdrawal? From…from what? I haven’t had a Goddamn drink since I’ve been on this island.
Dr. John Cawley: Chlorpromazine. I’m not a fan of pharmacology, but I have to say in your case…
Teddy Daniels: Chlor…chlorpromo…what?
Dr. John Cawley: Chlorpromazine. The same thing we’ve been giving you for the past twenty four months.
Teddy Daniels: Ah…so for the past two years, you…you’ve had somebody slipping me drugs in Boston? Is…is that it?
Dr. John Cawley: Not Boston. Here. You’ve been here for two years. A patient of this institution.
Teddy Daniels: After everything I’ve seen here, doctor, you…you really think you can convince me I’m crazy, huh? Do you know the kind of people that I deal with every day? I’m a U.S. Marshal for God’s sakes.
Dr. John Cawley: You were a U.S. Marshal. Here’s a copy of the intake form. You broke into Ward C for proof of the sixty seventh patient. If you’d gotten into the main land you could have blown the lid off this place.
Teddy Daniels: Wai…wait…
Dr. John Cawley: Somehow, you couldn’t find time to look at it. Well, read it now. Go ahead.
[Cawley holds out the paper and Teddy takes it and reads from the form]
Teddy Daniels: Patient is highly intelligent. Highly delusional. Decorated army veteran. Present for the liber…liberation of Dachau. Former U.S. Marshal. Known proclivity for violence. Shows no remorse for his crime because he denies the crime ever…ever took place. Highly developed and fantastical narratives which preclude facing the truth of his actions.
[he stops reading and throws the paper back at Cawley]
Teddy Daniels: I’ve had enough of this bullshit. Where…where’s my partner? Huh? Where’s Chuck? Where is he?
Dr. John Cawley: Let’s try this another way. You’re wife’s maiden name was Chanal? Am I correct?
Teddy Daniels: Don’t you even talk about her. Don’t you even say…
Dr. John Cawley: I’m afraid I have to.
[Cawley pulls the sheet off an easel, written on it is; Edward Daniels – Andrew Laeddis; Rachel Solando – Dolores Chanal]
Dr. John Cawley: Notice anything these four names have in common? It’s your rule four. Andrew, what do you see?
Teddy Daniels: If you’ve done anything to my partner, doctor, that is a violation of…
Dr. John Cawley: Focus, Andrew! What do you see? The names have the same letters. Edward Daniels has exactly the same thirteen letter as Andrew Laeddis. The same as Rachel Solando and Dolores Chanal. The names are anagrams for each other.
Teddy Daniels: Your…your tactics. They’re…they’re not gonna work on me.
Dr. John Cawley: You came here for the truth. Here it is. Your name is Andrew Laeddis. Sixty seventh patient at Ashecliffe is you, Andrew.
Teddy Daniels: Bullshit.
Dr. John Cawley: You were committed here by court order twenty four months ago. Your crime is terrible. One you can’t forgive yourself for, so you invented another self.
Teddy Daniels: All right. Let…let’s…let’s get down to the facts…
Dr. John Cawley: You created a story in which you’re not a murderer, you’re a hero. Still a U.S. Marshal. Only her at Ashecliffe because of the case and you’ve uncovered a conspiracy so that anything we tell you about who you are, what you’ve done, you can dismiss as lies, Andrew.
Teddy Daniels: My name is, Edward Daniels.
Dr. John Cawley: [frustrated] I’ve been hearing this fantasy for two years now. I know every detail. Patient sixty seven. The storm. Rachel Solando. Your missing partner. The dreams you have every night. You were at Dachau, but you may not have killed any guards. I wish I could let you just live in your fantasy world. I really do. But you’re violent. Trained. Dangerous. You’re the most dangerous patient we have. You’ve injured orderlies, guards, other patients. Two weeks ago you attacked George Noyce.
Teddy Daniels: No. No. I’m fucking on to you, doctor. You had Noyce beaten.
Dr. John Cawley: Of course I didn’t.
Teddy Daniels: Give me one reason why I would even touch him?
Dr. John Cawley: Because he called you Laeddis. And you do anything not to be him. I have a transcript of the conversation you had with Noyce, yesterday. ‘This is about you and Laeddis. That’s all it’s ever been about.’
[Teddy takes the transcript]
Teddy Daniels: No. He’s saying this is about me and Laeddis.
Dr. John Cawley: When you asked him what happened to his face he said and here I’m quoting again, ‘you did this’.
Teddy Daniels: No, he meant that it was…it was my fault.
Dr. John Cawley: You almost killed him.
Dr. John Cawley: The Warden and the board of overseers are determined something be done. It’s been decided, that unless we can bring you back to sanity now, right now, permanent measures will be taken to ensure you can’t hurt anyone ever again. They’ll lobotomize you, Andrew. You understand?
Teddy Daniels: Yeah, I understand. I understand just fine. If I…if I don’t play along, with your little game here, Dr. Naerhing is gonna turn me into one of his ghosts. But what about my partner? You’re…you’re gonna tell me the U.S. Marshal’s office that he’s a defense mechanism?
[just then Chuck opens the door and enters the room]
Chuck Aule: Hello, boss.
[shocked at seeing Chuck]
Teddy Daniels: What the fuck is goin’ on here? Hm? Huh? You…you working for him?
I’m sorry. There wasn’t any other way. Someone had to stick with you, keep you safe.
Teddy Daniels: You mean watch me, huh? Watching me every minute. Who…who are you? Who are you? Tell me?
Chuck Aule: Don’t you recognize me, Andrew? I’ve been your primary psychiatrist for the last two years. I’m Lester Sheehan.
Teddy Daniels: I told you…I told you about my wife. I…
Dr. Lester Sheehan: I know.
Teddy Daniels: I climbed down a cliff to get you. I…I trusted you. I…I…I risked everything to come in here after you. Everything!
Dr. Lester Sheehan: I know, boss.
Dr. John Cawley: I swore before the board of overseers that I could construct the most radical, cutting edge role play ever attempted in psychiatry and it would bring you back. I thought that if we let you play this out, we could get you to see how untrue, how impossible it is. You had the run of the place for two days. Tell me, where are the Nazi experiments. The satanic O.R.’s?
[Teddy can’t answer and sits down]
Dr. Lester Sheehan: Andrew, listen to me. If we fail with you, then everything that we’ve tried to do here will be discredited. Everything.
[Teddy’s got hold of his service gun and is pointing it and Sheehan and Cawley]
Teddy Daniels: [shouting] My name is Edward Daniels. This one’s loaded, I can tell by the weight.
Dr. John Cawley: I see. And that’s your firearm, Marshal? You’re sure?
Teddy Daniels: My initials are on the side. There’s dent on the barrel from when Philip Stack shot at me. You’re not gonna fuck with my mind on this one, doctor!
Dr. John Cawley: Then blast away. Because that’s the only way you’re ever getting off this island.
[Teddy fires at Cawley, his blood spatters on the wall behind him]
Dr. John Cawley: Andrew, please don’t.
[Teddy looks at Cawley, who is alive and unhurt]
Teddy Daniels: My gun!
[Teddy notices the gun is just plastic and breaks it in half]
Teddy Daniels: What did you do to my Goddamn gun?
Dr. Lester Sheehan: It’s a toy, Andrew.
Dr. Lester Sheehan: We’re telling you the truth. Dolores was insane, manic depressive. Suicidal. You drank. Stayed away. Ignored what everyone told you. You moved to that lake house after she purposely set your city apartment on fire.
[suddenly Teddy attacks Sheehan]
Teddy Daniels: You liar!
[Cawley tries to stop Teddy from chocking Sheehan]
Dr. John Cawley: Andrew! Andrew! Stop! Stop!
Teddy Daniels: All you’ve done is lie!
Dr. John Cawley: Andrew. Andrew, your children. Andrew, your Children.
[Cawley shows Teddy pictures of his dead children]
Dr. John Cawley: Simon. Henry.
Teddy Daniels: I never had any children.
Dr. John Cawley: You’re wife drowned them at the cabin by the lake. And here, the little girl, the one you dream of every night.
Teddy Daniels: I never had a little girl.
Dr. John Cawley: The one that tells you over and over that you should have saved her, saved them all. Your daughter. Her name was Rachel. Are you going to deny that she ever lived? Andrew, are you?
[Teddy sees Dolores, looking wet coming towards him]
Dolores Chanal: I’m so sorry, baby. I told you not to come in here. I told you, this would be the end of you.
[Teddy’s flashback; Dolores is outside behind their cabin, sitting in the Gazebo by the water rocking back and forth on the porch swing]
Teddy Daniels: Dolores?
[Dolores gets up and walks towards him, she’s soaking wet]
Teddy Daniels: Baby, why’re you all wet?
Dolores Chanal: I’ve missed you.
[she kisses him]
Dolores Chanal: I wanna go home.
Teddy Daniels: You are home. Where are the kids?
Dolores Chanal: They’re in school.
Teddy Daniels: It’s Saturday, honey. School’s not in on Saturday.
Dolores Chanal: My school is.
[Teddy steps back with horror, he glances up and notices something floating in the lake]
Teddy Daniels: Oh, my God! Oh, my God!
[he runs towards the lake and jumps into the water to get to the body of his daughter, Rachel]
Teddy Daniels: Oh, my God! Oh, my God! Oh, my God, no!
[he tries to give her mouth to mouth resuscitation]
Teddy Daniels: Come on! Come on!
[she’s not breathing, he knows it’s too late and breaks down crying, he then notices the bodies of his two sons and grabs hold of them]
Teddy Daniels: [sobbing] No! No! Please, God! Please, God, no! No!
[Teddy’s laid out the bodies of his children on the shore, he’s sitting by them numbly. Dolores comes up to him]
Dolores Chanal: Let’s put them at the table, Andrew. We’ll dry them off. We’ll change their clothes. They’ll be our living dolls. Huh? Tomorrow we can take them on a picnic.
Teddy Daniels: If you ever loved me, Dolores, please stop talking.
[Dolores starts to cry]
Dolores Chanal: I love you. You…you set me free.
Teddy Daniels: Baby…
Dolores Chanal: We’ll give them baths.
Teddy Daniels: I love you, baby.
Dolores Chanal: I love you too.
Teddy Daniels: I love you so much.
Dolores Chanal: I love you so much. I love you like…
[a gun shot is heard and then Dolores slumps back onto the ground, Teddy is sobbing hard and touches the blood pouring from her stomach]
Dr. Lester Sheehan: Andrew. Andrew, can you hear me?
Teddy Daniels: Rachel. Rachel…Rachel.
[Teddy wakes up to find Cawley, Sheehan and a nurse, the woman that we thought of as Rachel 1]
Dr. Lester Sheehan: Rachel? Rachel who?
Teddy Daniels: Rachel…Rachel Laeddis. My daughter.
Dr. John Cawley: Why are you here?
Teddy Daniels: Because I killed my wife.
Dr. John Cawley: And why did you do that?
Teddy Daniels: Because she murdered our children. She told me to let her go.
Dr. Lester Sheehan: Who’s Teddy Daniels?
Teddy Daniels: He doesn’t exist. Neither does Rachel Solando. I made them up.
Dr. Lester Sheehan: Why?
Dr. John Cawley: We need to hear you say it.
Teddy Daniels: After she tried to kill herself the first time, Dolores told me she…she had an insect living inside her brain. She could feel it clicking across her skull, just…pulling the wires, just for fun. She told me that. She told me that but I didn’t listen. I loved her so much.
Dr. John Cawley: Why did you make them up?
Teddy Daniels: Because I can’t take knowing that Dolores killed our children. I mean I…I killed them because I didn’t…I didn’t get her help. You know. I killed them.
Dr. John Cawley: Here’s my fear, Andrew. We…we broke through once before, nine months ago. And then you regressed.
Teddy Daniels: I don’t remember that.
Dr. John Cawley: I know. You reset, Andrew. Like a tape playing over and over on an endless loop. I’d hope that what we’ve done here would be enough to stop from ever happening again, but I need to know you’ve accepted reality.
Teddy Daniels: You came after me? Huh, doctor? You…you tried to help me when no one else would.
[he pauses for a moment]
Teddy Daniels: My name is Andrew Laeddis. And I murdered my wife in the spring of fifty two.
[Teddy’s sitting on the hospital steps]
Dr. Lester Sheehan: How we doing this morning?
Teddy Daniels: Good. And you?
Dr. Lester Sheehan: Can’t complain.
Teddy Daniels: So what’s our next move?
Dr. Lester Sheehan: You tell me.
Teddy Daniels: I gotta get off this rock, Chuck. Get back to the mainland. Whatever the hell’s going on here, it’s bad.
[Sheehan looks over to Cawley, Naehring and the Warden and shakes his head]
Teddy Daniels: Don’t worry partner, they’re not gonna catch us.
Dr. Lester Sheehan: That’s right, we’re too smart for em.
Teddy Daniels: Yeah, we are, aren’t we. You know, this place makes me wonder.
Dr. Lester Sheehan: Yeah. What’s that, boss?
Teddy Daniels: Which would be worse, to live as a monster or to die as a good man?
[Teddy gets up and walks towards Cawley and the orderlies]
Dr. Lester Sheehan: Teddy?
