(Eerie music playing)

(lndistinct chatter over radio)

(On speakers) Ladies and gentlemen,

your intermission is almost over.

You have two minutes till show time.

I'd like Trojans.

(On speakers) Ladies and gentlemen,

your intermission is almost over.

You have one minute till show time.


(On speakers) Ladies and gentlemen,

your intermission is over.

Come on, babe.


(Woman) Mmm.

(Woman screams in the background)

(Man sighs)

What is it?

(Whispering) It's the boys. The boys.

Look, they've been asleep for half an hour.

Don't worry about it.


(Man) Hmm.


(Boy, whispering) Mom's at it again.

Let's get out of here.


Get out of here, creep.

Hey, hey, get out of here.

What are you doing? Get lost.

Beat it.



(Screaming continues)


(Woman, screaming) Help me!

Help me! Help!

(Low voice) I thought

I heard somebody scream.


All right, look, let's get out of here.

This is ridiculous.

You know, I don't do women

who drag their kids around everywhere.

OK. Take me home.

Oh, my God.

Where are the boys?

My boys have gone!

(Yelling) Mommy, Mommy, Mommy, Mom!


- Mom!

- Terry!

- Lemme go. Terry.

- Mom!

- Terry, you're all right? What happened?

- I'm fine.

He did... He just hurt that person.

He just hurt him.

Terry, stop it. Stop it. Stop it.

Son, it's all right. No, it's all right.

Mommy's here. It's fine.




(Siren wailing)

(Man) Thank you, Mrs Simmons.

- Happy Thanksgiving to you.

- Same to you, Mrs Simmons.

I thought that it was

important for us to meet today,

because as you know I've been

working with Todd the last few months.

(Dr Berman) Dr Berman's patient

consultation notes, November 22nd 1984.

Saw Maddy Simmons, Todd's mother,

for the first time today.

I don 't think she was

quite prepared for what I told her.

That after 1 0 years,

Todd was starting to remember

what had happened in the drive-in that night.

Facing the fact

that Todd's memory of the incident

cast suspicion on his twin brother, Terry,

was not that easy for her.

On Terry?

What, are you crazy?

Her position on another issue

was also somewhat negative.

No! No!

No more tests.

No more tests.

My children are not guinea pigs.

My past work with hysterical patients

helped me calm her down.

I'm sorry.

Though calmer, Maddy's level of resistance

was still quite high.

I wondered...

How would she react

when confronted with Todd himself?

How would Todd respond to Maddy

in view of his new recollections?

I was not without worry.

After all, I had never seen

the two of them together.

It's your favourite.

Pumpkin pie.

(Dr Berman) Maddy

treated Todd like a child.

As if no time had passed

since the evening of the murder.

Their initial tension was predictable

in light of Todd's breakthrough.

The trauma of watching his twin

commit murder had made Todd catatonic.

In that state, he couldn 't fight

what he now sees as punishment

for a crime he did not commit.

Maddy persisted in defending Terry.

And espousing her notion

of one big, happy family

without realising that such ideas

had ceased to have any meaning for Todd.

(Todd) Family. I don't...

(Muttering) I don't care about...

(Dr Berman) His world and my work

were beginning to crumble.

Todd, please don't do this.

- Honey, just stop it. Honey, please.

- (Buzzer sounds)

Sweetheart, its Dr Berman's office.

(Dr Berman) But in spite of

the dramatic nature of today's outburst,

I consider the setback relatively minor

because Todd remained focused

on establishing his innocence,

and getting on with a normal life.

(Todd) Get me out of here.

I never killed anybody.

(Dr Berman) I must now begin

the long process of preparing him

for the dangers of the world

from which he has been sheltered.

(All) Break.

(T erry) All right, you rush.

I'm going to cover Karen.

(Dr Berman) As for Terry,

he mustn 't find out that I suspect him.

He's been normal for 1 0 years.

But who knows what

will trigger another killing?

- (Laughter)

- I think I got you.

(Group) Aww.

Come on, it's a football game,

not a kissing contest.

(Laughter and chatter)

(lndistinct chatter)

You must be Terry!

Your mom's told me all about you.

I am Beth, your new neighbour.

This is Andrea. She's just

home from college, too.

Your mom invited us

for Thanksgiving tonight

and we will both be just delighted to come.

Great! Why don't you play football with us?

I don't really know anybody here yet.

Oh, come on, you'll have fun.

Hey, who's that good-looking

chick with him?

(Scoffs) I don't know.

Listen, everybody.

Let's go up for a swim, huh?

Yeah, let's go.

Oh, I am so glad I don't have

to slave in the kitchen this year.

That Maddy Simmons is a saint!

I mean, she really is.

She hasn't had it easy.

Her husband left her when

the boys were young.

Terry has a twin who killed someone

and went crazy.

- Wow. That's tragic.

- I mean, Terry saw the whole thing.

The doctors thought he might

never get over it.

(Chuckling) He seems to have

adjusted quite well.

Looks all right now!

Oh, Jesus, look at that.

New girl in town.

Ohh, yummy, yummy, yummy.

(Gregg) The water's nice.


Oh, this is great!


(Karen) One, two, three!




Oh, just...

(Clears throat)


Hey, Andrea honey?
