Hey, hey, hurry UP-

There's a girl giving

birth in my f***in' cab.

Oh, sh*t.

Six weeks on the force,

and I'm getting into this.

Go on, go on.

You cops know how to deliver babies.

Oh, yeah, sure, right.

I deliver them all the time.

Listen, there's a phone

down on that corner.

Go call an ambulance.

Help me.

Help me.

Take it easy.

It'll be all right.

Can you put her on the

sidewalk or somethin'?

I don't care about the fare.

Just get her out of my cab.

Would you hurry?

Something's wrong.

It'll be all right.


Oh, something's wrong.

31 years drivin' a cab in

New York, I've never been

robbed, never been mugged,

but I never should have

picked up a pregnant woman.

- Breathe deep.

- I can't!

Would you get going?

I should have locked the

f***in' doors when I saw her.

Talk to me. Talk to me.

What are you doin' alone?

Where's the husband?

I don't even know who the father is.

I should have never had the baby.

Relax, push, push.

Oh, God, it's coming.

It's coming, take it easy.

It's easy.

Oh, sh*t.


What's wrong with my baby?

It's one of them!

What?! What?!

A priest found it

when he opened up this morning.

At least what's left of it.

He lost a lot of blood before he died.

That's some baby.

You guys ever see a baby like this?

It took four bullets before it died.

They're being born faster

than we can kill 'em.

What the hell did it want in here?

Oh my God.

Now, how many of these

mutations are in question?

At the moment there are

five in custody, Your Honor,

but we have every reason to

believe that more are being

kept hidden.

We've already seen copies of these.

Man 2:
I'm sure you have, Your

Honor, and I'm also sure

that opposing counsel has

nothing to add to this

comprehensive research.

So I see no reason to continue

to waste the court's time.


Your Honor, we are arguing for a stay of

these unlawful executions--

I object to the term

executions, Your Honor.

Any actions which have

been taken have been taken

strictly in self-defense.

Are you going to deny

that you have

execution squads roaming this

country with orders to kill

these infants on sight?

Objection, Your Honor.

Dr. Brewster, we recognize

your credentials as an

expert in this field, but

we'll tolerate no further


Yes, Your Honor.

Please, let's not allow

this to be degraded into

some maudlin play for

sympathy by depicting these

creatures as infants.

Now, I can't account for them.

Medical science can't account for them.

Let's not ever mistake

them for human beings.

They are human beings.

My child's a human being,

you son of a b*tch.

Remove Mr. Jarvis from the court.

We ask that he be allowed

to stay, Your Honor.

We have our reasons.

Fine, Officer.

Very well, Mr. Ralston.

I've requested that one of them

be brought into this court.

We had one of them

transferred from a medical

facility nearby to the

courthouse early this morning.

Mr. Jarvis, do you have

any objection to your child

being brought into this court?

My child?


No, not at all.

We'll take a brief adjournment

while it's brought in here.

He's deliberately using

your child in an attempt

to make his point.

If he can show the judge

that you're afraid of your

own baby, terrified of

it, despite all we say in

its defense, then he's won.

What am I supposed to do?

Do you believe in what we're doing?

I don't want him to die, but

I'm scared shitless of him.

ls that human?

Oh my God.

It looks like a thing.


Take your seats, take your seats.

May the record show that

the infant born of the parents

Stephen and Ellen Jarvis on

the 14 of March of this year has

been admitted to this court.

Mr. Jarvis, can you identify

this child as your own?

Yes, it's my child.

Objection, Your Honor, how

can a man sitting halfway

across the court--

courtroom, make an identification

of something inside

a cage, barely visible to him?

The point is well taken.

Mr. Jarvis, would it be

preferable for you to get up

and take a closer look

before making a positive


Would you go over to the cage, please,

and look in and make an identification?

Would you go over and bend

down, please, and look

into that cage, Mr. Jarvis?

Now, let's not be hesitant, Mr. Jarvis.

After all, it's just a little baby.

It won't bite you.

Will counsel please

refrain from speaking to the

witness when he's attempting

to make identification?

Your Honor, can't we

simply stipulate that this

is the Jarvis child and get on with it?

Will both counsels please be silent?

Mr. Jarvis, I realize this

is very difficult for you.

Would you please lean over

and look into the cage?

All right, I'm goin', I'm goin', okay?

We can understand Mr. Jarvis' fear.

After all, one of these

creatures attacked and

killed Frank Davis when

he tried to help it.

Another one attacked Eugene

Scott, who tried to help it.

These creatures will attack

and try to kill anyone

who gets close to them.

That's a lie, and I'm not afraid.

Mr. Jarvis is an actor

by profession, as we know,

but this is surely among his

least effective performances.

Can't you see it's

this baby that's afraid?

The lights, the guns.

It's afraid for its little life.

You want to live?

I don't even know if you

understand me, but if you want
