[speaking Bulgarian]

As you can see,

our Cultural Attach Department

has extended our ESL program

to the rest of Bulgaria

with extraordinary results.

Sofia Private School

has the best scores in the country.

I think you should give

each and every one of yourselves

a round of applause

for this extraordinary accomplishment.

[applause]

Aah!

[groaning]

No witnesses.

[beeping]

[belly dance music plays]

[speaking Bulgarian]

So how's the good doctor this evening?

Happy to have the company

of my old friend.

Attractive, huh?

Yes, very.

So what's it been now, Robert, hmm?

Three years? Four?

It's been four years today, actually.

Look around, my friend.

If you wanted to,

you could go home

with a different one every night.

It's not exactly my style,

you know that.

What, then?

[sighs]

Ah, you're still punishing yourself

about the accident, are you?

Oh, Robert, you need to

deal with it, my friend.

I know what carrying that kind

of burden around can do to you.

I appreciate your concern as always,

but as long as I stay here

in Eastern Europe,

all of that stays back in New York.

Out of sight, out of mind.

Well, that's...

It doesn't work that way, my friend.

I think you need therapy.

I'll tell you what I do need.

I need a drink.

Where's our waitress?

[sighs]

[sighs again]

[passing sirens]

[dog barking]

[laughs quietly]

So, Vicki, how are we today, hmm?

I'm okay.

Good.

Any more memory lapses, hmm?

Any more bad dreams?

I sense that you're

avoiding conversation today.

Perhaps you'll indulge me

in a brief activity, hmm?

It's a hypnotic technique we use

to open a patient's senses,

to tap into the imagination.

It's really quite harmless.

You can trust me.

You're not afraid of a simple

little blindfold, are you?

You can remove it

whenever you want to.

I promise.

And just relax.

Breathe and relax.

Now, I asked you about your dreams.

Any recently that you recall?

Yes, one.

Go on.

It's embarrassing, actually.

It's like a re-creation

from something I read long ago.

Have you read Hubert Selby, Jr.

Last Exit to Brooklyn?

No, I can't say I have

There is this part at the end

where this junkie chick

climbs into an abandoned car

and lets every guy

in the neighborhood screw her.

Every scumbag and lowlife

for miles around get in this line,

and the line

goes around the block.

How did it affect you, the scene,

when you read it?

At the time, it was disturbing.

But in this dream...

I'm the girl in the abandoned car.

I can never see their faces.

They're hidden by keffiyehs,

you know, those Arabic scarves.

They're pulled over their faces,

and every one of those men...

Go on.

They're all the same man.

Have you thought who he might be...

the man wearing the keffiyeh?

[internalized screaming]

DR. KAHN:
Vicki?

Vicki?

- Vicki?

- What?

You blanked out there.

Went somewhere else

as you answered my questions.

I did?

Answered your questions?

What questions?

What did I say?

Well, you were away

for several moments.

You don't remember

what we were talking about?

No, I don't remember.

[bell rings]

MAN:
One moment, please.

Oh, here she is now.

This is the man

from the embassy, Vicki.

Robert Diggs.

Please meet my wife, Vicki Denov.

Pleased to meet you. Call me Vicki.

Sure.

So you'll be spending some time

with us today then?

Yes, that's correct.

Your English is excellent,

by the way.

It better be.

Shall we? I'm running late.

Sure. It's a pleasure.

Bye.
