What do we have?

Here we go.

What the hell...

No! Oh my God, no!

Oh my God, no! Oh my God!

Oh God!

Oh oh.

Oh God.Kathryn.

Oh oh oh.


Oh my God.


Oh God.

Oh, please.

Who are you?

Who the f***...

What the... What the...

what do you want?

What do you want?

What is this?

Oh, don't hurt them.

Please don't. Please.

I'm begging you.Oh f***.

Reflexes positive, at 2+.

How's our respiratory rate?

Respiratory's at 20and holding.


Check pupil size.

Looks like 2mm.


Responding to blood pressure.

Very good.

You were thirsty.

Now how about a bite of food?




Now you.


How we doing today?

We're doing great, aren't we?

We're eating our food.





I'm Dr. Timothy

Brady.I've been, uh,

treating yousince

you were admitted.

Though I feel like

we're meeting each other

for the first time.

You've been comatose for

the past nine months.

This is agent gorman

with the F.B.I.

He has some questions for you.


I'm gonna go over

there now, okay?

Given that you're the sole

eyewitness to the crime,

it's imperative that

we get your testimony

while it's fresh in your mind.

Do you remember the incident?


Your wife and daughter

didn't survive the attack.

I'm sorry.

Do you...

Do you remember anything

before the incident?

Memory loss is to be expected.

But with proper therapy

it's likely you'll recover

a large portion of your

memories over time.

Have you ever seen this man?

Was he the man who murdered

your wife and daughter?


His name is Luc deveraux.

His prints were all

over the crime scene.

Who is he?

Once a highly-decorated


but now he's best

classified as a deserter.

Why did... Why did

he kill my family?

Can you think of a reason?

I think that's enough for now.


Try to get some rest.

Call me if you

remember anything,

no matter how trivial.

Put the plumber to work.

The last guy they sent out

charged me 150 bucks.

And it's still leaking.

And it's still leaking.

It's still leaking,

still leaking.

So I called 'em backhand I said,

"I already paid once. I'm

not gonna do it again."

Hey, are you okay?

Oh Jesus.

Hey hey.Where are you going?

Just sign here and here.

And these are your things.

Do you like it?

I love it.- Because I made it.

I know you did.

Thank you, sweetie.Thank

you so much.

You're welcome.



There's monsters in the house.



Come on in, darling.

Double up special this evening.

Give it to me, give it to me.

Harder harder harder.

Come on.

Oh oh.

You came here to kill me.

Yet I'm prepared to give

you his greatest gift.

You will be freed.

You will serve him.


From this moment on,

you're no longer a slave

to the government.

From this moment on,

your mind is your own.

You're no longer a slave.

From this moment on...

from this moment on...

You will seek vengeance

on your oppressors.

Freedom is yours.

We are brothers.

We are one.

Hello?- John.

Who's this?

It's Isaac, man. Is that you?

Yeah, it's me.-

Jesus Christ, man.

Where have you been? Has

everything b-been all right?

Everything's fine.

Oh man.I thought you were...

You should have called me, man.

Where are you?- I'm home now.

I can't leave, you know. They...

They've been calling. I don't

know what it's about, man.

I haven't picked up the phone.

That's good.

Anyways he's not

making it easy, man.

Everything's here. It's loaded.

It's waiting to be

picked up, man.

But I don't know what to do.

You need to come

over, man, please.

What's the address?-

Oh, you know.

It's in my house.-

Tell me again.

I don't understand,

man.I'm worried.

I think they're watching me,

man.I don't think I'm safe.

Okay, give me the

address and I'll come.

Man, it's... you know I'm at

woodland commons, 9c, man.

Same as before, man. I'm sorry,

but it's just too much, man.

You got to get here.

Isaac kiakov, 3-26,

significant progress

reducing gestation period

from phase ii of universal

soldier program.

We'll know in a few weeks

if everything looks good.

Conversion rate on

embryos is way up.

Incubation period dropping

below nine months.

Dr. Su plans on adding

somatic stem cells

to the injection to make the

inhibitors more effective.

Still, I'm skeptical if we could

achieve a complete override.

As for implants, still a

struggle at the moment.

All right. How about a big round

of applause for fantasia?

Now put your hands together

for the lovely, the

luxurious raven.

Do you know me? Wait wait,

I wanna talk to you.

You really shouldn't be here.

Why is that?

You don't know?

I'm working.- I'll

pay for your time.

But I don't have

time.- Isaac kiakov.

Get your hands off me.-

Do you know Isaac kiakov?

Hey, sweet tits. How

about a dance for Larry?

Yeah okay, Larry. I got time...

get your f***ing hands off me.

Get your f***ing hands off her!

Larry.- F*ggot!

Come on. We got to dance.

What the f***?

Your mind is not your own.

Your mind is not your own.


Get him.


Stay the f*** out.

Calm down.

Calm the f*** down!

Or I'm gonna hurt you.


No. Calm down or I'm

gonna hurt you.

Calm down.

Why did you come back?


Jesus Christ.

Back, John!

My brothers.

Let's not forget the

moment of sickness.

Our thoughts interrupted by

unfamiliar worships.

We were merely arms and legs

moving to the directive

of another mind.

But in an instant the

veil has lifted.

And today, brothers, I

stand here to declare

your minds are now your own.

Each and every one of

us bred into slavery,

superior to our creators.

They gave us nothing...

nothing inside

but the void in our

soul, the curse

that binds us together,

my brothers.

But then he came along.

He turned the curse

into a blessing.

He is the inspiration.

He is the light

that set us free.

We are his eyes and ears

and soon we shall multiply 10,

We pioneers will spawn

the first generation

blessed with free will,

taking vengeance upon

those whose arrogance

once assumed our servitude.

With each passing day,

we grow stronger,

digging deeper into

the outside world.

Unnoticed, we live among

them like ghosts,

biding our time,

waiting for the moment

when our oppressors shall be
