Logan's Run script
Logan's Run (1976)
Synopsis: In the year 2274, young residents enjoy an idyllic, hedonistic lifestyle within the protective confines of a domed city. The general belief is that when each person turns 30, they are reincarnated for another blissful life cycle. Those who know the much darker truth become "runners" and flee to a hidden sanctuary. When law enforcement officer Logan (Michael York) goes undercover to locate the refuge, he winds up instead trying to initiate a revolution with runner Jessica (Jenny Agutter).

LOGAN:

Wake up...come on, Logan-6.

FRANCIS (shaking

his head in mild, mocking

disbelief)

You are here. I couldn't

believe it when they told me.

What are you doing?

LOGAN (still knocking

on the soundless glass)

Turn this way.

(as one of the infants

stirs, smiles, bubbles)

No, no...not you...YOU!

Francis tries to pull Logan away from the window, but Logan is

intent on waking one of the infants.

FRANCIS:

You should've seen me take my

last Runner...perfect.

(Logan continues to pound the

soundless glass)

I backed him up against a residence

pool and when he terminated...his

hand...

(breaks off as Logan

is paying no attention)

So now you've seen him...what's

the difference awake or asleep?

LOGAN (to infant)

Open your eyes once, idiot.

(to Francis)

It's not every day that a Sandman

son is born. I'm telling you,

Francis - that's him!

FRANCIS:

Maybe, maybe not. What's the

difference? Come on, Logan,

let's get out of here before

everybody finds out.

But Logan isn't moving. Francis gets an idea.

FRANCIS:

Okay...you really want to wake

him up?

Francis starts to pry at the Panel...knowing it will sound an

ALARM.

LOGAN:

Hey, cut that out !

Too late:
There is a SOUND OF ALARM CHIMES. The area in which they

stand is bathed in a violet glow. Logan grabs Francis firmly and

stops him from prying at the panel:

LOGAN:

Now you've done it...

The CHIMES STOP...but the glow continues, a metallic VOICE is heard:

VOICE:

Break-in scanners report intrusion,

identify.

LOGAN:

Logan-5...Francis-7, authorized duty

quadrant. Intrusion accidental.

VOICE:

Clear Logan-5 and Francis-7.
