- Give me two more.

- Raise you two.

- Oh, raise me two?

Jacks and kings,

what do you got?

Ah, it's all me.

You suck at this game, man.

- I know.

- You needed to gamble more

when you were growing up.

- I can't tell you

how excited we are

that you chose our

institution to do research

for your new book, Dr. Marcus.

- Well that

pleases me to hear, Dr. Victor.

- Please, call me Paul.

May I call you Daniel?

- Actually, no.

I only let my friends

call me Daniel.

Paul, have a seat please.

Have you had a chance to--

- oh, finished it last night.

Very, very impressive

work, doctor.

A riveting read.

We're lucky to have you here.

- Well thank you, that's

so nice of you to say.

My only hope is that i

can make a difference

in the lives of

your patients here.

- I have no doubt that you will.

Though I must say,

you certainly have your

hands full with this group.

I can assure you of that.

Do you mind if I ask why these

patients stood out to you?

- Not at all.

The research I'm

going to be doing here

is in support of a

new book of mine,

which is going to be addressing

the fundamental difference

between true mental illness

and that of a created

psychosis brought on by

a patient's need to

buffer the subconscious

against some horrendous

or horrific act

that's been occurred

upon them in the past.

Or it could be hiding a much

more sinister, darker issue,

which is,

that they're lying.

And they're hiding some heinous,

horrible act in their past

that they're guilty of.

- Well, in that case,

you've picked the

cream of the crop.

These patients suffer from

a variety of mental

health issues,

probably the most

severe I've ever seen.

Everything from

paranoid schizophrenia,

extreme phobias and

delusional disorders.

Causing nearly all of them to

commit some terrible crime.

- Which is why I chose them.

Now, were they

informed that I was

doing research on a new book?

- Yeah, they've

certainly been told.

Whether they remember or

not remains to be seen.

- Well, I believe that...

Being honest with a

patient is a way of

unlocking their trust.

- Of course.

As requested, all the

patients have been

moved into a joint holding area.

And I've given specific

instructions to Kyle and Shane--

- Kyle and Shane, they are?

- They're the orderlies I've

assigned to assist you today.

Kyle is my nephew.

Not the brightest young man,

but certainly

capable of escorting

the patients in and

out of the office.

Unfortunately, our operational

budget has been cut

by the board of directors.


So we do what we can

with staffing these days.

- Well, when this new book

comes out and it's a success,

I will attribute

your institution

with all the research

and hopefully that'll buffer

some of your costs

in the future.

- I have faith that it will.

And I do hope the

office we've provided

for the interviews will suffice.

Due to the severe nature

of mental illnesses

of the patients you've selected,

we have to keep them

under maximum security.

- Well, I'm sure

it'll be just fine.

- Well, if there's

anything else you need,

just have one of the

orderlies come find me.

I'll be on my afternoon rounds.

- Thank you very much.

- Enjoy the sessions, doctor.

- Absolutely.

- Dude, this place blows,

i don't get any service.

- Dude, what the hell?

- Gentlemen.

- Yes?

- Could you bring in

patient 110984, please?

- Yes sir.

- For the record,

patient 110984.

Jill, 27 years old.

She's been institutionalized

for over 17 years.

The patient claims

her mother tried

to murder her at the age of 10.
