Please. Where is he?

Where's Roy?

"He lives, but without a life.

"He lives in a closet.

An antisocial loner

with a love of gadgets. "

I wasn't writing about you!

"Society doesn't notice him because

he's invisible, normal and ordinary. "

You're not ordinary.

You're gifted, intelligent and-

Huh! And you're just trying

to butter me up.

Look. If you're angry at what

I wrote, let's- let's talk.

But leave Roy out of it.

- Did you come alone?

- No backup.

Good. Chapter six.

You have 90 seconds.

- No! Please!

- How do you raise an attack dog?

The answer is

right in front of you.

I'm a cop. I'm looking for

anything about my brother.

Yeah. You're that lady

on the book cover.

Some guy brought this by for you.

He said you'd understand.

Chapter six.

"You raise an attack dog

alone as a puppy.

You give it a biscuit... when it bites. "

I think I've seen you on TV.


You're a bad cop

and you wrote a bad book.

- Roy!

- You don't know how it feels to kill.

I'm gonna give you deeper insight.

Go away!

One door is wired to explode and one is not.

You can save your brother

or kill him trying.

- Do you know?

- No!

Twelve seconds to read my mind.

Which door would the killer in your

book pick? Nine seconds, Jennifer.

- Get out!

- No!

Peters, get out now!

No! No!



We got a cop down!

Get an ambulance now. Get it!

Get an ambulance!

The early Christian

philosophers borrowed from Plato...

when writing

about evil, but, uh...

St. Augustine...

changed this from an objective...

to a more subjective creation.

Uh, for instance,

St. Augustine believed...

that evil was

beyond the reach of no man.

So did Freud.

Yeah, well-

Freud isn't exactly

my favorite moral philosopher.

Man's struggle against

evil started in the Garden...

and continues unabated...

because of the fall.

Who once said,

"Evil is the blemish of our species...

that will not spare

even the best man"?



- Yeah, Kevin.

- Kant.

Very good. The 19th century

German philosopher Immanuel Kant.

Actually, it's the 18th century.

Kant died in 1804, but wrote

his major works in the 18th century.

Thank you, Kevin.

The devil is in the details.

I stand corrected.

You hardly speak up...

but when you do,

it's worth the wait.

You have a first-rate mind, Kevin.

But about your thesis-

I'm still waiting on

that prodigal first draft.

I have hit a wall.

Well, search along the wall...

till you find a door.

Hey, genius.

Nice call on Kant.

And another piece of advice.

If you're blocked,

take a day off.

Get out into the fresh air

while you still can.

Before you end up

an old dried-up professor like me.

That'd be an honor, sir.

But I do need to see an outline

before the end of next week.

No shirking.

You know what I'm capable of.


- Hello?

You have three minutes...

to confess your sin

before I blow your car up.

Someone must have left

this phone in the car. It's not-

Kevin Parson, you can't hide in the

seminary. You can't drive away from your past.

- Who is this?

- Don't you remember me, Kevin?

I'm hanging up.

You're passing into

the Harbor Tunnel.

Your clock reads 2:57.

And you don't remember

what to confess.

Here's a clue.

What falls but never breaks?

What breaks but never falls?

- What falls- Is this a joke?

- Don't believe and die.


Get back!


Don't you remember me, Kevin?

You remember everything.




I thought he had

the wrong person.

- Then he said my name.

- Mm-hmm.

What falls but never breaks?

What breaks but never falls?

- What does that mean to you?
