Cat's Eye

Synopsis: Three horror-thriller tales revolve around a mysterious stray cat which is attempting to find a little girl in trouble. In "Quitters, Inc.": the cat is picked up by a shady New York "doctor" who uses experimental techniques to get people to quit smoking. His latest client is a man named Morrison, who learns he'll suffer some terrible consequences if he tries to cheat. In "The Ledge": the cat is picked up by Cressner, a shady Atlantic City millionaire who forces tennis pro Norris (his wife's lover), to walk a narrow ledge around his high-rise penthouse apartment. In "The General": the cat arrives in Wilmington, North Carolina, where it is found by Amanda, the young girl it has been sent to protect. What she needs protection from is a tiny, evil troll who lives behind the skirting board in her bedroom.

Help me. Help me.

Up here. Look up here.

Help me.

You've got to find it.

lt's after me.

You've got to get back and find it.

You've got to stop it.

Please help me. You've got to help me.

Nice little pussycat.

You just saved me a trip to the pound.

What are you so excited about?

What am I, a cat psychologist?

Get in there.

Well, this is the place.

-I don't know about this, Jim.

-You said you wanted to quit these.

But I'd like to know--

Go on, Dickie, before you lose your guts.

-Why don't you come up with me?

-It doesn't work that way.

It's against the rules.

What is this, a ''quit smoking'' clinic

or the CIA?

It'll turn your life around, Dick.

I guarantee it.

That's what Jim Jones said

when he spiked the punch.

I guess this is where you come

to quit smoking, right?

-Fill one of these out, please.

-No, I have a pen.


Are you all right?


No, no....

Oh, my precious. It's all right.

You'll be fine.

-Take me home, please.

-I will. Come on.

Hang on to me.

I've been a smoker for a long time.

Since I was 16.

It is very hard.

Come on, now, sweetheart.

The elevator is down here. One step....

-Excuse me--

-I'll take that.

Actually, I think I've changed my mind.

-Mr. Morrison?


-Sorry to keep you waiting.

-It's all right. I was just....

Come with me.

We're about to change your life.

For the better, I hope.

The founding father?

Please, Mr. Morrison.

I see you have a daughter who's 10.


You left the space for her school blank.

Where my daughter goes to school

has no connection with...

...whether or not you can help me

to quit smoking, Mr. Donatti.

-Are we going to get down to it, or not?

-Yes, of course.

In fact, we've already started

getting down to it.

Do you have cigarettes with you?

Does a bear shit in the woods?

May I have them, please?

Our methods here at Quitters Incorporated

are rather radical.

As a treatment, Mr. Donatti, they suck.

There's a newsstand down in the lobby,

they sell all brands.

Availability is only part of the problem.

The fallback rate for reformed smokers... higher than the fallback rate

for heroin addicts.

You can spare me the Reader's Digest

lecture, my friend, because...

...I've changed my mind.

Will you open this door?

You've got a hell of a problem,

Mr. Morrison.

But we here at Quitters have developed

a hell of a solution.

You'll have a hell of a problem

if you don't open this door!

Relax, Mr. Morrison.

Here's something that might interest you.

Watch closely, Mr. Morrison.

Nothing up either sleeve...

...and you will notice at no time

does my hand leave my wrist.

The music is part of his conditioning.

Boogie down, baby.

What are you doing? Stop it!

You're killing him!

Kill the nice kitty? Oh, no, he's fine.

Maybe a little crispy around the paws,

but otherwise he's fine.

Damn it!

You barbecue all the cats you want.

If you don't let me out

inside of 15 seconds...

...I'll call the cops on you

faster than you can say ''Marlboro Man.''

You better listen to the big picture,

Mr. Morrison.

Quitters Incorporated was endowed

by a very important person.

After he died of lung cancer,

we realized there were techniques...

...he had developed

in the family business...

...that we can now use

to stop people from smoking.

Actually, this is a very nice tax gimmick...

...but mainly we're interested

in helping our fellow man.

For the first month our operatives

will have you under constant supervision.

You may see some of them all of the time.

You may see all of them some of the time,
