milagro


1
00:04:07,530 –> 00:04:10,556
Sorry about that. Come on in.

2
00:04:11,367 –> 00:04:15,064
l rode up on the elevator with someone.

3
00:04:15,171 –> 00:04:17,662
Someone from next door, l think.

4
00:04:17,740 –> 00:04:19,173
– Young guy?
– Yeah.

5
00:04:19,242 –> 00:04:22,302
– New neighbor. Why?
– You met him?

6
00:04:22,545 –> 00:04:25,537
– Briefly. He’s a writer.
– What’s he write?

7
00:04:25,648 –> 00:04:27,283
He didn’t say.

8
00:04:27,283 –> 00:04:27,681
He didn’t say.

9
00:04:27,750 –> 00:04:32,744
These are my autopsy reports
from the second victim.

10
00:04:44,000 –> 00:04:48,232
The heart was removed
in the same manner as the previous victim.

11
00:04:48,338 –> 00:04:52,604
No incisions, no scope marks,
no cutting of any kind.

12
00:04:52,742 –> 00:04:55,404
No indication of how the killer did it?

13
00:04:55,511 –> 00:04:59,880
There are no prints,
no DNA material, no hair in fiber.

14
00:05:02,118 –> 00:05:05,781
Yet you still refuse to believe
that this is psychic surgery?

15
00:05:05,888 –> 00:05:09,449
Psychic surgery is a man dipping
his hand in a bucket of chicken guts,

16
00:05:09,559 –> 00:05:12,426
pretending to remove tumors
from the sick and gullible.

17
00:05:12,528 –> 00:05:14,263
Or it’s a grossly misunderstood
area of alternative medicine.

18
00:05:14,263 –> 00:05:17,460
Or it’s a grossly misunderstood
area of alternative medicine.

19
00:05:17,567 –> 00:05:21,765
Medicine as you’re referring to it
is about keeping people alive.

20
00:05:21,871 –> 00:05:26,740
Absent another theory, how do we account
for the extraction of this man’s heart?

21
00:05:27,744 –> 00:05:29,871
l don’t know. l have no idea.

22
00:05:29,946 –> 00:05:34,474
We have no evidence, no MO to speak of.
This could be the perfect crime.

23
00:05:34,917 –> 00:05:38,614
A crime is only as perfect as
the man or the mind that commits it.

24
00:05:38,721 –> 00:05:42,748
Even if it were, and he made no mistakes,
there’s still his motive.

25
00:05:42,825 –> 00:05:45,658
You find his motive
and you find the murderer.

26
00:06:31,040 –> 00:06:34,032
– That’s why l didn’t wanna come.
– l’m not doing anything.

27
00:06:34,143 –> 00:06:37,874
– You’re thinking about it.
– There’s a console between us.

28
00:06:37,980 –> 00:06:42,212
– You make it sound like l’m an attacker.
– We talked about this.

29
00:06:42,552 –> 00:06:45,350
l told you l loved you.

30
00:06:45,455 –> 00:06:47,047
Oh, Kevin.

31
00:07:00,870 –> 00:07:02,735
– There you go again.
– What?

32
00:07:02,839 –> 00:07:06,366
– That thing you do. You know what l mean.
– That’s how l kiss, Maggie.

33
00:07:06,476 –> 00:07:09,172
– l get the message.
– Where are you going?

34
00:07:09,245 –> 00:07:12,043
– l can’t talk to you.
– Maggie…

35
00:07:29,232 –> 00:07:31,325
Maggie?

36
00:07:42,178 –> 00:07:44,772
Maggie, come on!

37
00:08:00,963 –> 00:08:03,056
No! No!

38
00:08:28,157 –> 00:08:30,625
– Scully.
– Glad l caught you.

39
00:08:30,726 –> 00:08:35,663
We got a third victim.
16-year-old kid out on lovers’ lane.

40
00:08:35,765 –> 00:08:38,996
– Are you sure?
– Yeah.

41
00:08:39,101 –> 00:08:42,764
Many have had their hearts broken
out here, but not like this.

42
00:08:42,905 –> 00:08:47,137
l was hoping you’d be here to explain it
in medical terms to the local PD.

43
00:08:47,243 –> 00:08:49,336
l’m not sure that l could.

44
00:08:49,445 –> 00:08:51,913
– Did anybody see anybody?
– No, nothing.

45
00:08:51,981 –> 00:08:56,680
There’s nowhere to start on this case.
Nothing to ask, nothing to say.

46
00:08:56,786 –> 00:08:59,220
There’s got to be something, Mulder.

47
00:08:59,488 –> 00:09:03,686
Something about his victims.
Why he chooses them, a pattern.

48
00:09:03,793 –> 00:09:05,852
So far there’s nothing.

49
00:09:05,962 –> 00:09:09,489
lt appears to be just
a series of random attacks.

50
00:09:09,599 –> 00:09:12,033
An envelope’s come under your door.

51
00:09:12,134 –> 00:09:14,534
– From who?
– lt’s unmarked.

52
00:09:23,980 –> 00:09:27,711
lt’s some kind of a pendant. Like a charm.

53
00:09:31,120 –> 00:09:34,886
Her prompt mind ran through
the Golconda of possibilities.

54
00:09:34,991 –> 00:09:37,152
Was this trinket from the killer?

55
00:09:37,226 –> 00:09:40,718
Was there a message contained
in its equivocal symbolism?

56
00:09:40,830 –> 00:09:44,197
Was he a religious fanatic
who had licked the envelope,

57
00:09:44,300 –> 00:09:47,792
leaving the telltale DNA
that would begin his unraveling?

58
00:09:47,870 –> 00:09:50,668
She had a condign certainty
the killer was a male,

59
00:09:50,740 –> 00:09:52,799
and now, as she held the cold metal,

60
00:09:52,875 –> 00:09:56,572
she imagined him doing the same,
trying to picture his face.

61
00:09:57,647 –> 00:10:03,483
lt would be a plain face, an average face,
a face people would be prone to trust.

62
00:10:03,552 –> 00:10:06,715
She knew this inherently,
being trusting herself.

63
00:10:06,822 –> 00:10:12,351
But her image was no better than the useless
sketch composites that littered her files.

64
00:10:12,428 –> 00:10:16,228
Preconsciously, she knew this
wasn’t her strength as an investigator.

65
00:10:16,332 –> 00:10:22,271
She was a marshal of cold facts,
quick to organize, connect, shuffle,

66
00:10:22,371 –> 00:10:27,172
reorder and synthesize the relative
hard values into discrete categories.

67
00:10:27,243 –> 00:10:30,371
lmprecision would only invite sexist criticism

68
00:10:30,446 –> 00:10:36,180
that she was soft, malleable,
not up to her male counterparts.

69
00:10:37,753 –> 00:10:43,020
Even now, as she pushed an errant strand
of Titian hair behind her ear,

70
00:10:43,092 –> 00:10:47,426
she worried her partner would know
instinctively what she could only guess.

71
00:10:47,530 –> 00:10:52,695
To be thought of as simply a beautiful
woman was bridling, unthinkable.

72
00:10:52,768 –> 00:10:54,895
But she was beautiful.

73
00:10:54,970 –> 00:10:59,100
Fatally, stunningly prepossessing.

74
00:10:59,208 –> 00:11:04,077
Yet the respect she commanded only
deepened the yearnings of her heart,

75
00:11:04,146 –> 00:11:06,273
to let it open,

76
00:11:06,382 –> 00:11:08,441
to let someone in.

77
00:11:15,791 –> 00:11:19,659
lt’s called a milagro.
lt’s a Spanish word for ”miracle.”

78
00:11:19,762 –> 00:11:22,788
– lt’s worn as a lucky charm.
– lt came here for me?

79
00:11:22,898 –> 00:11:26,334
lt was dropped off at reception
by a man in his late 20s, early 30s.

80
00:11:26,435 –> 00:11:29,802
Average looking, average build.
They didn’t get a good lD.

81
00:11:29,905 –> 00:11:32,675
There are no fingerprints
and no DNA from his saliva.

82
00:11:32,675 –> 00:11:34,802
There are no fingerprints
and no DNA from his saliva.

83
00:11:34,910 –> 00:11:39,279
– l don’t think it’s the killer.
– Did you see that it’s a burning heart?

84
00:11:39,348 –> 00:11:45,184
l see the heart, but this is a killer that
leaves no clues. This is too heavy-handed.

85
00:11:45,287 –> 00:11:49,485
Maybe it has something to do with
his next victim and he’s taunting you.

86
00:11:49,592 –> 00:11:52,652
Maybe it’s not me at all.
Maybe he sent it to you.

87
00:11:54,029 –> 00:11:56,589
Maybe it’s a secret admirer.

88
00:11:57,767 –> 00:12:00,031
– l’ll check it out.
– No, let me.

89
00:12:00,136 –> 00:12:02,536
You’ve got a 9am with
the DC medical examiner.

90
00:12:02,638 –> 00:12:07,007
He’s gonna let you autopsy the latest victim.

91
00:12:07,109 –> 00:12:14,072
Thank you for making my schedule,
but l’ll have to be late for that appointment.

92
00:12:55,524 –> 00:12:59,016
l often come here to look at this painting.

93
00:12:59,094 –> 00:13:04,396
lt’s called ”My Divine Heart,”
after the miracle of St Margaret Mary.

94
00:13:04,500 –> 00:13:06,593
Do you know the story?

95
00:13:06,702 –> 00:13:09,034
The revelation of the Sacred Heart?

96
00:13:09,104 –> 00:13:13,700
Christ came to Margaret Mary,
his heart so inflamed with love

97
00:13:13,776 –> 00:13:19,009
that it was no longer able to contain
its burning flames of charity.

98
00:13:19,081 –> 00:13:23,450
Margaret Mary,
so filled with divine love herself,

99
00:13:23,552 –> 00:13:26,851
asked the Lord to take her heart.

100
00:13:26,922 –> 00:13:29,117
And so he did,

101
00:13:29,225 –> 00:13:34,788
placing it alongside his until
it burned with the flames of his passion.

102
00:13:34,897 –> 00:13:38,389
Then he restored it to Margaret Mary,

103
00:13:38,467 –> 00:13:42,403
sealing her wound
with a touch of his blessed hand.

104
00:13:42,471 –> 00:13:45,531
Why are you telling me this?

105
00:13:45,608 –> 00:13:48,441
You came here specifically
to see this, didn’t you?

106
00:13:48,544 –> 00:13:51,707
Yes. How did you know that?

107
00:13:51,780 –> 00:13:55,079
l saw you enter.
The way you knew right where it was.

108
00:13:55,150 –> 00:13:57,414
l know you.

109
00:13:57,486 –> 00:14:00,717
You live next to somebody l work with.

110
00:14:01,957 –> 00:14:05,120
– Why are you following me?
– l’m not.

111
00:14:06,128 –> 00:14:09,222
l’d only imagined that you’d come here today.

112
00:14:09,298 –> 00:14:11,459
You imagined it?

113
00:14:13,135 –> 00:14:17,731
l’m a writer. That’s what l do:
imagine how people behave.

114
00:14:19,074 –> 00:14:23,738
l have to admit l’ve noticed you.
l do that. Notice people.

115
00:14:26,682 –> 00:14:31,016
l saw the gold cross around your neck,
so l took a chance with the painting,

116
00:14:31,120 –> 00:14:33,782
explaining something you may already know.

117
00:14:33,856 –> 00:14:37,986
l saw Georgetown parking permits
on your car dating from 1993

118
00:14:38,093 –> 00:14:41,324
and a government sticker
that lets you park where you like.

119
00:14:41,430 –> 00:14:43,365
You don’t live in this area, but as a federal
employee you have reason to frequent it.

120
00:14:43,365 –> 00:14:46,994
You don’t live in this area, but as a federal
employee you have reason to frequent it.

121
00:14:47,102 –> 00:14:52,335
You’re fit, with muscular calves,
so you must exercise or run.

122
00:14:52,441 –> 00:14:56,844
There’s a running route nearby that
you might use at lunch or after work.

123
00:14:56,946 –> 00:14:59,437
You’d have noticed this church in passing.

124
00:14:59,515 –> 00:15:02,382
Though parking is a problem
in this part of town,

125
00:15:02,484 –> 00:15:05,544
your special privileges
would make it easy to visit.

126
00:15:05,654 –> 00:15:07,781
Not as a place of worship,

127
00:15:07,856 –> 00:15:11,849
but because you have an appreciation
for architecture and the arts.

128
00:15:12,161 –> 00:15:16,291
And while the grandeur
is what you take away from your visit,

129
00:15:16,365 –> 00:15:20,859
this painting’s religious symbolism would
have left a subconscious impression,

130
00:15:20,970 –> 00:15:24,906
jogged by the gift you received this morning.

131
00:15:25,007 –> 00:15:28,909
– That was from you?
– l have to admit to a secret attraction.

132
00:15:30,713 –> 00:15:34,809
l’m sorry l didn’t include a note,
but you didn’t know me then.

133
00:15:34,883 –> 00:15:38,375
And l don’t know you now.
And l don’t care to.

134
00:15:38,487 –> 00:15:43,584
l see this is making you
uncomfortable, and l’m sorry.

135
00:15:44,093 –> 00:15:49,360
lt’s just that l’m taken with you.
That never happens to me.

136
00:15:52,501 –> 00:15:55,163
We’re alike that way.

137
00:16:18,060 –> 00:16:22,554
You weren’tjokin’ about being late. l was
about to start slicin’ and dicin’ myself.

138
00:16:22,631 –> 00:16:25,566
– l’m sorry.
– Where were you?

139
00:16:25,634 –> 00:16:29,968
l was doing some research
and learning that l owe you an apology.

140
00:16:30,072 –> 00:16:34,873
– For what?
– The milagro charm.

141
00:16:34,943 –> 00:16:37,468
You were right about its insignificance.

142
00:16:37,579 –> 00:16:40,309
l think l was wrong. lt’s very significant.

143
00:16:40,416 –> 00:16:43,214
lt may be a communication from the killer.

144
00:16:43,285 –> 00:16:47,085
My research shows that credible
practitioners of psychic surgery

145
00:16:47,156 –> 00:16:52,560
believe they’re imbued with the Holy Spirit,
that their hands are the miracle tools of God.

146
00:16:52,628 –> 00:16:56,894
Mulder, this is nothing more than a tool

147
00:16:56,965 –> 00:17:01,231
used by a lovelorn Romeo who just
happens to be your next-door neighbor.

148
00:17:01,303 –> 00:17:04,170
– Who, the writer?
– Yes.

149
00:17:04,273 –> 00:17:09,233
My secret admirer, who claims
to know the mysteries of my heart.

150
00:17:09,311 –> 00:17:11,142
– You’re kidding.
– l wish l were.

151
00:17:11,246 –> 00:17:15,580
He cornered me today
and told me my life story.

152
00:17:15,651 –> 00:17:18,745
lt was kind of frightening, actually.

153
00:17:18,821 –> 00:17:21,949
– ls he our killer?
– No.

154
00:17:22,958 –> 00:17:27,486
Frightening, as in too much
information and intimate detail.

155
00:17:27,596 –> 00:17:31,498
What kills you is his audacity.

156
00:17:32,501 –> 00:17:34,469
Did you get his name?

157
00:17:34,536 –> 00:17:38,097
No, but that shouldn’t be too hard to find out.

158
00:18:51,747 –> 00:18:55,410
– l’m sorry, l forgot your name.
– Padgett.

159
00:18:55,517 –> 00:18:59,248
– Phillip Padgett.
– You’re a writer.

160
00:18:59,354 –> 00:19:02,755
– Anything l’d know?
– l don’t think so.

161
00:19:17,372 –> 00:19:19,431
You’re an FBl agent.

162
00:19:21,143 –> 00:19:24,579
Working on anything interesting?

163
00:19:24,646 –> 00:19:26,882
– A murder case.
– Anything l’d know?

164
00:19:26,882 –> 00:19:28,577
– A murder case.
– Anything l’d know?

165
00:19:30,285 –> 00:19:31,752
Possibly.

166
00:19:35,958 –> 00:19:39,086
The overture in the church
urged the beautiful agent’s partner

167
00:19:39,161 –> 00:19:42,460
into an act of Hegelian self-justification.

168
00:19:42,564 –> 00:19:45,965
Expeditiously violating the Fourth
Amendment against mail theft,

169
00:19:46,068 –> 00:19:49,629
he prepared to impudently infract the First.

170
00:19:53,942 –> 00:19:58,106
But if she’d predictably aroused
her sly partner’s suspicions,

171
00:19:58,180 –> 00:20:03,618
Special Agent Dana Scully had herself
become simply aroused.

172
00:20:05,354 –> 00:20:10,417
The stranger’s unsought compliments played
the dampened strings of her instrument,

173
00:20:10,492 –> 00:20:14,952
until the middle C of consciousness
was struck square and resonant.

174
00:20:15,030 –> 00:20:17,260
She was flattered.

175
00:20:17,332 –> 00:20:20,995
His words had presented her
a pretty picture of herself,

176
00:20:21,103 –> 00:20:24,539
unlike the practiced mask of uprightness
mirrored back to her

177
00:20:24,640 –> 00:20:27,370
from the medical examiners,
the investigators,

178
00:20:27,476 –> 00:20:31,344
and all the lawmen
who dared no such utterances.

179
00:20:31,446 –> 00:20:33,846
She felt an involuntary flush

180
00:20:33,949 –> 00:20:38,113
and rebuked herself
for the girlish indulgence.

181
00:20:38,186 –> 00:20:42,350
But the images came perforce
and she let them play.

182
00:20:42,457 –> 00:20:46,894
Let them flood in like savory, or more,
a sugary confection from her adolescence

183
00:20:46,995 –> 00:20:52,661
when her senses were new
and ungoverned by fear and self-denial.

184
00:20:52,734 –> 00:20:55,726
”Ache.” ”Pang.”

185
00:20:55,837 –> 00:20:58,829
”Prick.” ”Twinge.”

186
00:20:58,907 –> 00:21:02,240
How ironic the Victorian vocabulary
of behavioral pathology

187
00:21:02,344 –> 00:21:06,405
now so perfectly described
the palpations of her own desire.

188
00:21:06,515 –> 00:21:08,574
The stranger had looked her in the eye

189
00:21:08,684 –> 00:21:12,085
and knew her more completely
than she knew herself.

190
00:21:12,187 –> 00:21:16,988
She felt wild, feral, guilty as a criminal.

191
00:21:18,026 –> 00:21:21,655
Had the stranger unleashed in her
what was already there,

192
00:21:21,730 –> 00:21:28,101
or only helped her discover a landscape
she’d by necessity blinded herself to?

193
00:21:28,203 –> 00:21:30,933
What would her partner think of her?

194
00:21:50,258 –> 00:21:52,351
Mr Popularity.

195
00:22:50,652 –> 00:22:52,847
Hi. l…

196
00:22:52,954 –> 00:22:56,287
l was going next door
and l thought that l’d return this.

197
00:22:56,358 –> 00:22:57,518
Why?

198
00:22:58,927 –> 00:23:00,986
Because l can’t return the gesture.

199
00:23:04,132 –> 00:23:07,829
– l can’t.
– You’re curious about me.

200
00:23:19,614 –> 00:23:21,673
You don’t have any furniture.

201
00:23:22,150 –> 00:23:24,277
l have what l need.

202
00:23:24,352 –> 00:23:26,718
l write at my desk. l sleep in my bed.

203
00:23:27,622 –> 00:23:30,284
– You don’t eat?
– l live in my head.

204
00:23:32,894 –> 00:23:35,021
– Writing your books.
– Yes.

205
00:23:36,298 –> 00:23:40,359
– Anything l’d know?
– No. They’re all failures.

206
00:23:41,837 –> 00:23:46,968
Except the one l’m working on now.
l think l’m getting it right.

207
00:23:47,375 –> 00:23:50,640
– Why now, all of a sudden?
– Best not to question it.

208
00:23:54,182 –> 00:23:57,845
See? You are curious about me.

209
00:23:58,487 –> 00:24:03,356
– You lead a curious life.
– lt’s not so different from yours, l imagine.

210
00:24:03,992 –> 00:24:05,084
Lonely.

211
00:24:10,198 –> 00:24:12,359
Loneliness is a choice.

212
00:24:14,002 –> 00:24:16,835
So how about a cup of coffee?

213
00:24:55,710 –> 00:25:00,113
– My life’s not so lonely, Mr…
– Padgett.

214
00:25:01,716 –> 00:25:04,150
lt’s actually anything but.

215
00:25:04,886 –> 00:25:07,912
How is it you think you know me so well?

216
00:25:07,989 –> 00:25:10,958
– l’m writing about you.
– Right.

217
00:25:15,597 –> 00:25:18,430
– Since when?
– Since l first noticed you.

218
00:25:18,800 –> 00:25:22,497
You live in my old neighborhood.

219
00:25:22,604 –> 00:25:26,597
And you moved into
this building by coincidence?

220
00:25:26,675 –> 00:25:29,644
– No.
– You moved here because of me.

221
00:25:29,744 –> 00:25:32,645
There was nothing available in your building.

222
00:25:32,747 –> 00:25:36,444
And it’s not like you
spend a lot of time at home.

223
00:25:36,518 –> 00:25:40,420
l should have said something but
l couldn’t get it down fast enough.

224
00:25:40,488 –> 00:25:44,117
To really write someone,
l have to be in their head.

225
00:25:44,192 –> 00:25:47,286
l have to know them
more than they know themselves.

226
00:25:47,362 –> 00:25:50,661
– This is all about me?
– You’re an important part.

227
00:25:53,301 –> 00:25:55,929
– May l read it?
– lt’s not finished.

228
00:25:56,504 –> 00:26:01,134
l can’t tell you how helpful it is
being able to talk with you like this.

229
00:26:01,209 –> 00:26:03,939
Would you sit and stay a minute?

230
00:26:04,879 –> 00:26:07,575
You don’t have anywhere to sit.

231
00:26:18,059 –> 00:26:22,462
– l’m due next door.
– You haven’t finished your coffee.

232
00:26:24,799 –> 00:26:27,859
l’m very uncomfortable with this.

233
00:26:27,969 –> 00:26:31,302
Why? You’re armed, aren’t you?

234
00:26:35,310 –> 00:26:37,369
lmagine that.

235
00:26:41,683 –> 00:26:43,742
l’ll get a bulb.

236
00:27:00,669 –> 00:27:03,763
A view only a writer can appreciate.

237
00:27:11,680 –> 00:27:16,879
lf you know me so well, why am l standing
here when my instincts tell me to go?

238
00:27:16,951 –> 00:27:19,112
Motive is never easy.

239
00:27:21,423 –> 00:27:24,085
Sometimes it occurs to one only later.

240
00:27:28,096 –> 00:27:30,360
Please.

241
00:27:31,599 –> 00:27:33,692
Sit.

242
00:27:51,086 –> 00:27:53,145
lmagine that.

243
00:28:22,684 –> 00:28:25,084
What are you doing?

244
00:28:25,153 –> 00:28:28,316
– You all right?
– Yes.

245
00:28:40,201 –> 00:28:42,328
What are you doing?

246
00:28:45,340 –> 00:28:48,173
Putting this man under arrest.

247
00:29:07,162 –> 00:29:10,325
Yes, l’ve seen this paper.

248
00:29:10,398 –> 00:29:12,662
That’s how you found your victims.

249
00:29:12,734 –> 00:29:15,999
– They all took out personal ads.
– They were lovers.

250
00:29:16,070 –> 00:29:19,039
– And you targeted them.
– l only write about them.

251
00:29:19,140 –> 00:29:21,335
No, you targeted…

252
00:29:22,343 –> 00:29:26,370
– Not without his lawyer.
– l don’t need one. l’m telling the truth.

253
00:29:26,481 –> 00:29:28,972
And this is your confession?

254
00:29:34,989 –> 00:29:37,423
No, it’s my novel.

255
00:29:37,525 –> 00:29:42,394
lt’s all in there. Every detail,
every murder, all laid out.

256
00:29:42,497 –> 00:29:46,263
– How’d you do it, Mr Padgett?
– lf l sit long enough, it comes to me.

257
00:29:46,367 –> 00:29:47,698
The murders.

258
00:29:47,769 –> 00:29:52,729
l only knew what was in my mind
and wished to express it clearly.

259
00:29:52,841 –> 00:29:55,366
How about ”the stranger”? ls that you?

260
00:29:56,377 –> 00:30:00,438
– How about Ken Naciamento?
– Self-proclaimed Brazilian psychic surgeon?

261
00:30:00,548 –> 00:30:02,948
– ls that your accomplice?
– You could say that.

262
00:30:03,051 –> 00:30:05,679
– He’s a central character.
– Did you direct him?

263
00:30:05,753 –> 00:30:09,746
Jungians would say that
the characters choose the writer,

264
00:30:09,858 –> 00:30:13,385
so l guess you could argue he directed me.

265
00:30:16,097 –> 00:30:17,758
Which is the truth?

266
00:30:17,866 –> 00:30:21,097
Words are imprecise
and layered with meaning.

267
00:30:21,202 –> 00:30:24,103
They’re signs of things,
not things themselves.

268
00:30:24,205 –> 00:30:27,606
lt’s difficult to say who’s in charge.

269
00:30:38,453 –> 00:30:42,947
Why, Mr Padgett?
Maybe that’s a question you can answer.

270
00:30:44,792 –> 00:30:47,590
That’s the one question l can’t.

271
00:30:51,332 –> 00:30:55,496
Agent Mulder? My book. Did you like it?

272
00:30:56,738 –> 00:30:58,797
Maybe if it were fiction.

273
00:31:04,512 –> 00:31:07,970
– Where are you going?
– To find the Brazilian psychic surgeon.

274
00:31:08,082 –> 00:31:11,916
l did that. That’s what l’ve been doing.

275
00:31:12,754 –> 00:31:16,691
Dr Ken Naciamento, São Paulo, Brazil.
Emigrated here in 1996.

276
00:31:16,691 –> 00:31:17,589
Dr Ken Naciamento, São Paulo, Brazil.
Emigrated here in 1996.

277
00:31:17,659 –> 00:31:19,820
– Where is he now?
– Dead.

278
00:31:19,928 –> 00:31:22,089
– He can’t be.
– Two years dead.

279
00:31:22,163 –> 00:31:26,156
– They’re faxing me a death certificate.
– Padgett couldn’t have done it alone.

280
00:31:26,267 –> 00:31:28,758
Maybe he didn’t do it at all.

281
00:31:28,836 –> 00:31:31,202
lt’s all on the page.
How else would he know it?

282
00:31:31,306 –> 00:31:38,041
Maybe he imagined it, like he said.
Like Shakespeare or Freud or Jung.

283
00:31:38,146 –> 00:31:43,140
Maybe he has some gift, and he has
a clear window into human nature.

284
00:31:43,217 –> 00:31:46,709
No one can predict human behavior
or tell you what a person will do.

285
00:31:46,821 –> 00:31:49,346
lsn’t that what you do,
as a behavioral profiler?

286
00:31:49,457 –> 00:31:53,450
You imagine the killer’s mind so well
that you know what they’ll do next.

287
00:31:53,528 –> 00:31:56,622
lf he imagines it, it’s a priori, before the fact.

288
00:31:56,698 –> 00:32:00,395
l think that’s pretty clear
from what he wrote about you.

289
00:32:01,235 –> 00:32:05,035
– You know you’re in here, don’t you?
– l read a chapter.

290
00:32:07,909 –> 00:32:09,809
What does he say?

291
00:32:11,145 –> 00:32:14,740
lt ends with you doing the naked pretzel
with ”the stranger” on a bed

292
00:32:14,849 –> 00:32:18,717
in an unfurnished fourth-floor apartment.

293
00:32:21,756 –> 00:32:24,554
l’m assuming that’s a priori, too?

294
00:32:24,659 –> 00:32:28,390
l think you know me better than that, Mulder.

295
00:32:32,600 –> 00:32:35,592
You might wanna finish it.

296
00:32:54,522 –> 00:32:58,891
The prisoner’s written something
l think you should see.

297
00:32:58,960 –> 00:33:01,724
– What is it?
– He says it’s a statement,

298
00:33:01,896 –> 00:33:05,093
but l think he’s putting somebody on.

299
00:33:09,737 –> 00:33:15,573
”Grief squeezed at her eggshell heart
like it might break into a thousand pieces,

300
00:33:15,643 –> 00:33:18,737
its contents running like broken promises

301
00:33:18,813 –> 00:33:22,613
into the hollow places his love used to fill.”

302
00:33:22,717 –> 00:33:25,208
”How could she know this pain would end?”

303
00:33:25,286 –> 00:33:31,054
”That love, unlike matter or energy,
was in endless supply in the universe?”

304
00:33:31,125 –> 00:33:35,755
”A germ which grows from nothingness,
which cannot be eradicated,

305
00:33:35,830 –> 00:33:38,594
even from the darkest of hearts?”

306
00:33:38,666 –> 00:33:42,659
”lf she had known this –
and who could say she would believe it? –

307
00:33:42,770 –> 00:33:47,002
she would not have chanced to remain
at his sad grave until such an hour,

308
00:33:47,108 –> 00:33:51,340
so that she might not have to learn
the second truth before the first,

309
00:33:51,446 –> 00:33:56,645
that to have love was to carry a vessel
that could be lost or stolen.”

310
00:33:56,751 –> 00:34:01,120
”Or worse, spilled blood-red on the ground.”

311
00:34:01,189 –> 00:34:03,453
”And that love was not immutable.”

312
00:34:03,524 –> 00:34:08,086
”lt could become hate, as day becomes night,

313
00:34:08,162 –> 00:34:10,255
as life becomes death.”

314
00:34:51,539 –> 00:34:55,566
She’s a no-show, at home
or anywhere else she might go.

315
00:34:55,676 –> 00:34:57,712
There’s signs of a struggle at the grave,

316
00:34:57,812 –> 00:35:02,476
but the area was so trampled by the funeral
that collecting evidence will be impossible.

317
00:35:02,550 –> 00:35:04,848
l think this is a big jerk-off.

318
00:35:04,919 –> 00:35:09,913
Maybe his statement’s to prove that he’s
telling the truth, that he truly just imagined it.

319
00:35:10,024 –> 00:35:13,050
The only thing that he imagined
was us out here…

320
00:35:16,097 –> 00:35:17,894
looking like idiots.

321
00:35:25,339 –> 00:35:28,240
Hands where l can see ’em! Don’t move!

322
00:35:28,342 –> 00:35:30,776
l’m a federal agent.

323
00:35:30,878 –> 00:35:34,109
– Mulder, that’s not him.
– What’d l do?

324
00:35:34,215 –> 00:35:36,410
Check the truck, Scully.

325
00:35:36,517 –> 00:35:38,576
Mulder, he works here.

326
00:36:14,722 –> 00:36:18,214
How did you know the body was in the truck?

327
00:36:18,292 –> 00:36:20,157
l imagined it.

328
00:36:20,261 –> 00:36:23,094
There’s no evidence that
Padgett directed the killer.

329
00:36:23,164 –> 00:36:25,928
Do you need a signed work order?
Of course he did.

330
00:36:26,000 –> 00:36:29,663
You are making critical
assumptions without any facts.

331
00:36:29,770 –> 00:36:32,796
What about time of death?
What are you doing?

332
00:36:32,907 –> 00:36:36,138
You’re about to argue
my usual side, aren’t you?

333
00:36:36,244 –> 00:36:39,805
Why couldn’t he have imagined it,
just got into the killer’s head?

334
00:36:39,914 –> 00:36:43,577
You read what he wrote about you.
Did he get inside your head?

335
00:36:43,651 –> 00:36:45,949
– ls what l read true?
– Of course not.

336
00:36:46,020 –> 00:36:48,648
l don’t know how they communicate.

337
00:36:48,756 –> 00:36:51,850
This is the only way l can think to catch him.

338
00:36:55,296 –> 00:36:57,355
Mr Padgett?

339
00:36:58,966 –> 00:37:02,367
You can go. We apologize for our mistake.

340
00:37:02,470 –> 00:37:05,166
You’re free to finish your book.

341
00:37:06,607 –> 00:37:08,666
Thank you.

342
00:37:13,014 –> 00:37:15,107
l made a mistake myself.

343
00:37:16,017 –> 00:37:18,508
What’s that, Mr Padgett?

344
00:37:19,720 –> 00:37:25,454
ln my book l’d written that Agent Scully
falls in love, but that’s obviously impossible.

345
00:37:25,526 –> 00:37:28,154
Agent Scully is already in love.

346
00:38:09,904 –> 00:38:11,997
What are you doing here?

347
00:38:21,282 –> 00:38:23,682
You seem surprised to see me.

348
00:38:24,218 –> 00:38:29,451
– Yes, completely.
– Why? l’m your character.

349
00:38:30,057 –> 00:38:33,754
– What do you want?
– l’m here to help you finish.

350
00:38:33,861 –> 00:38:36,295
l can’t figure out your motive.

351
00:38:36,897 –> 00:38:39,559
You imagine me so perfectly in every way.

352
00:38:39,633 –> 00:38:42,534
So perfectly that you bring me to life.

353
00:38:43,137 –> 00:38:48,131
– Why did you choose me?
– l needed a perfect crime.

354
00:38:48,242 –> 00:38:51,268
She’s a doctor.
She’d be horrified by what you do.

355
00:38:51,812 –> 00:38:54,645
l’m horrified.

356
00:38:54,749 –> 00:38:59,277
– l just want to know why l do it.
– So l could meet her.

357
00:39:03,057 –> 00:39:05,617
That’s not a reason.

358
00:39:10,131 –> 00:39:12,224
lt’s an excuse.

359
00:39:18,806 –> 00:39:21,468
– Anything?
– He’s just sittin’ there.

360
00:39:22,910 –> 00:39:24,502
Staring.

361
00:39:29,850 –> 00:39:32,944
– Now, what is this?
– A big mistake.

362
00:39:33,020 –> 00:39:38,515
– l misjudged her, her interest in me.
– Now we’re onto something.

363
00:39:38,626 –> 00:39:42,187
She’s trying to get his attention,
but doesn’t know it.

364
00:39:42,296 –> 00:39:44,787
The old unconscious at work.

365
00:39:44,865 –> 00:39:47,595
l wanted to love her.

366
00:39:48,002 –> 00:39:51,165
No wonder you can’t finish this book.

367
00:39:52,039 –> 00:39:56,305
– Why do l want their hearts?
– You tell me. Why do you do it?

368
00:39:56,377 –> 00:39:59,642
l’m your character. You tell me.

369
00:39:59,713 –> 00:40:03,479
– My reason is your reason.
– l want to feel love.

370
00:40:03,551 –> 00:40:06,611
No.

371
00:40:07,488 –> 00:40:09,547
You had it right up to there.

372
00:40:09,657 –> 00:40:12,888
You were a tool of the truth.

373
00:40:12,993 –> 00:40:19,296
And when it finally arrives –
when l arrive – you don’t want to see it.

374
00:40:19,366 –> 00:40:22,301
But what is the truth?

375
00:40:22,369 –> 00:40:26,897
Man imagines that he, too,
can open up his heart

376
00:40:27,007 –> 00:40:34,175
and expose the burning passion,
the flames of charity, like the creator himself.

377
00:40:34,248 –> 00:40:37,809
But this is not in his power.

378
00:40:38,252 –> 00:40:40,345
But l have love in my heart.

379
00:40:40,421 –> 00:40:47,350
Yes. As a thief has riches,
a usurer, money, you have it.

380
00:40:47,428 –> 00:40:54,857
But man’s only power –
only true power – is to destroy it.

381
00:40:55,269 –> 00:40:58,534
Then what’s the end of my story?

382
00:41:00,374 –> 00:41:03,537
There can only be one true ending

383
00:41:04,678 –> 00:41:07,272
if it is to be perfect.

384
00:41:09,583 –> 00:41:11,175
She dies?

385
00:41:12,786 –> 00:41:17,086
See? lt almost writes itself.

386
00:41:36,744 –> 00:41:38,803
What’s he up to now?

387
00:41:39,647 –> 00:41:42,115
He just started typing again.

388
00:41:50,057 –> 00:41:52,423
Now what?

389
00:41:59,166 –> 00:42:01,293
Anything?

390
00:42:18,352 –> 00:42:20,912
Padgett! Freeze.

391
00:42:22,122 –> 00:42:24,352
Step away from the incinerator.

392
00:42:37,304 –> 00:42:41,104
– What do you think you’re doin’?
– Destroying my book.

393
00:42:41,175 –> 00:42:43,439
Destroying evidence, you mean.

394
00:42:43,944 –> 00:42:48,176
– Let me see what you wrote.
– l’ll tell you. He kills her.

395
00:42:59,493 –> 00:43:02,724
You came here to give
instructions to your accomplice?

396
00:43:02,830 –> 00:43:04,957
– No, he told me how it ends.
– When?

397
00:43:05,032 –> 00:43:08,160
– ln my apartment.
– You were alone up there.

398
00:44:14,601 –> 00:44:17,900
”A story can have only one true ending.”

399
00:44:17,971 –> 00:44:21,065
”Even as the stranger committed
his final words to paper,

400
00:44:21,141 –> 00:44:23,974
he did it knowing they must never be read.”

401
00:44:24,044 –> 00:44:26,979
”To see the sum of his work was
to see inside his own emptiness,

402
00:44:27,047 –> 00:44:30,346
the heart of a destroyer, not a creator.”

403
00:44:30,417 –> 00:44:34,877
”And yet, reflected back upon him,
at last he could see his own ending.”

404
00:44:34,955 –> 00:44:37,753
”And in this final act of destruction,

405
00:44:37,825 –> 00:44:41,158
a chance to give what he could not receive.”
