Are we burning

some midnight oil?

Hi Mom, I didn't

hear you coming.

I guess I kinda got

caught up in it.

Something new?

I'm just experimenting.

Following the music.

I'm just going to work for a couple of

minutes and then I'm going to turn in.

Okay, sweetheart.

Pleasant dreams.

You too.

I love you.

I love you too.

Sorry, Mom.

I think that stereo has a

weird electrical short

or something.

I'm okay, I'm just

really into it tonight.

Stop now, okay?




My goodness, that girl.


The stereo's really loud.

Bethany, it's really late.

Are you okay?

Why are you sitting in the dark?

Bethany, answer me.



My God, my God,

please let me in!

Let me in!


Baby, baby, where are you?


Bethany, baby?

Where are you?



Don't, don't what?

Let him get me.

Bethany, baby, please, who?

Don't let who get you?

Just a second.

Just a second.

My gosh.

My gosh!

I know.

What are you going to do?

Sorry, I just found

out 15 minutes ago.

Right, well,



And you haven't told Buckley?

My God, no.

I gotta figure some

things out first.

Are you guys having problems?


I don't know, he keeps bringing

up moving in together again.

And that's a bad thing?

It's just a step I'm not

sure I'm ready to take.

Wait wait.

So, in summary, you're in a

positive, healthy relationship

with a solid, gainfully

employed guy,

who actually wants

to commit to you,

whose child you're now carrying.

Tell me where I send the

condolence letters to.

I guess I got a lot

of stuff left over

from how I grew up, and...

I've been taking care

of myself for so long,

and now with this baby,

I, I don't know.

I'm not comfortable rushing

myself into any kind

of giant commitment.

Yeah, but I think after

almost three years,

you're just dragging your feet.

Crap, I'm going to be late.

Yeah, that meeting

with Senorita Spooky?

Yeah, it's gonna be a long day.

Well, hey, call me if

you need me, okay?



Thank you for your time

today, Professor Kern.

Your expertise will be a

great asset to my thesis

on the relevance of parapsychology

in modern psychiatry.

My pleasure.

Before we start, may I ask

what drew you to the subject?

I don't get many

inquiries like yours.

I guess I've always

been a bit fascinated

by the human condition.

Do you believe in

the supernatural?

Atheist searching for a miracle.

So just for the record, will

you please state your name?

Dr. Lois Kern, head of the Parapsychology

Department of Columbia University.

And how long have you

been investigating

and researching claims

of the paranormal?

Over 20 years.

I did my undergraduate

at Princeton University,

magna cum laude in the Classics,

and trained in Psychiatry

at the Yale University

School of Medicine,

before moving into

field studies.

And how many cases would

you say you've covered?

Personally, I've overseen 200.

How many were you able to

scientifically verify?


Out of 200, yes?

You seem disappointed.

You have to admit, it's a very

small percentage of the whole.

Miss Carpenter, Veronica, I'd

be remiss if I didn't admit

the majority of cases are

either outright hoaxes or,

when held up to the

scrutiny of rigorous

and regimented examination, fall

under clearly explainable means.

And science has given us

answers to primal fears.

What we once referred to as

monsters are now mutations.

The nature and order of the

world and the human body

can be seen in cells

under a microscope

rather than the pages

of fairy tales.

But you do believe
