date Tuesday, February 10th, 2004)
What are you doing in my office, Rae?
Natalie is staying with mother Viki after the failed attack
on her by the Music Box Killer. Jessica is there too since
Antonio is off in Chicago talking to the authorities about
the Love Child Murders. Jess talks with her twin Natalie,
and tells Natalie that she seems to have misplaced her keys.
Scene Two: Haver tries to hide a pair of keys behind his back.
They are on a key chain with a blue heart, with the letter
"J," Jessica's keys. Haver opens the door, looking malevolently
at Rae, though trying to also act normal. Rae is terrified,
but tries to hide it. She has to try and explain what she
is doing in his office and how she got the diploma for Samuel
Hartford. She smiles. For a couple of moments neither says
I..... just left you a note (smiles again).
STEPHEN: (Looking spooking and nodding) Oh! (Looking
down towards the diploma she is trying to hide, he motions with
his head) What have you got there?
RAE: (Nervous laugh) Huh, (Looking at the diploma)
I'm..... I guess I'm caught, huh (forcing a smile)? It's the medical
license and diploma of Dr. Samuel Hartford. The therapist that treated
the Love Child Murder in Chicago.
STEPHEN: (Continues to stare at her, unblinking,
standing at the door) Uh-huh.
RAE: I mean, what are you doing with them?
nothing but continues to look at her menacingly. He eyes look
down and then back towards her, never blinking. Haver has no
Scene Three: Haver quickly changes his demeanor.
He puts down his satchel. He becomes very animated, talking
fast, and friendly as if nothing is wrong.
You know, I don't believe I ever told you this, but I collect
criminal memorabilia. (Taking off his gloves) In fact, my collection
is getting to be world class.
RAE: No, (Trying to act as if nothing is wrong,
exhales) I didn't know that. What about murders?
(Frowning) Oh no, no, not just murders, famous,
the best of the worst.
Picks up the
diploma, Rae watches nervously. She is trying to hide her fear
as he rambles on about his collection. He seems very excited by
his macabre collection. This just makes Rae more nervous and worried
for her safety.
I have in my collection the gun that killed Ruby Rose in Hollywood
in the 20's. I have the leather straps attached to the electric
chair that killed Henry Dale. I have handcuffs once worn by Lee
Harvey Oswald. And now, (looking at the diploma, admiring it) the
medical degree and license to practice of the late Dr. Samuel Hartford.
Not as good as something from the Love Child killer himself, but-uh,
(Smiles) it's a start.
RAE: (Smiling too, trying to appease him) Yeah!
So how do you (motioning with her head) get something like that?
STEPHEN: Ohhh, you'd be amazed what you can buy
on the internet these days.
admiringly at the diploma. Rae does a nervous laugh.
I'm going to use this in my next book. Illustrations (looking towards
Rae), you know.
STEPHEN: But-uh, it's odd though (frowning)....
RAE: What is?
STEPHEN: Well, this was in my desk (with a perplexed
look), what were you doing in my desk, Rae?
does not know how to respond. Haver tilts his head and flashes
and almost nasty grin.
Scene Four: Some time later, still in his office Haver is pouring
a cup of coffee, from behind his desk, and hands it to Rae, who
is standing in front of the desk.
RAE: (Takes it) Thank you.
STEPHEN: (Acting normal) You're very welcome. (Takes
his cup) When you couldn't find your copy of the police report on
Troy MacIver, (motioning) you assumed that they police (gesturing)
put your copy with my copy by mistake (smiles).
RAE: (Smiles relieved) Yes! Yes! I.... I needed
to go over to go over those dates--
....of when he got those passes, and I shou ...., (exhales, bending
her head in embarrassment) Oh, Stephen, I am sooo
sorry. I.... I hope you'll forgive me. Sometimes I can be so
obsessed by something (exhales).
stands there, his head tilted to the left, with an amused expression.
It is obvious he is not buying into her explanation. He seems
to enjoy her squirming.
(Cont.) And (pointing at him) if you tell anyone I said that, (groans).
STEPHEN: (Holding onto his cup and walking from
behind his desk; laughing). Your secret is safe with me. It's no
problem. (Indicating with his finger) But, next time
you want to go through my desk, just give me a heads up first, and
I'll make sure everything's clean.
RAE: Yes, yes, they're won't be next time.
And you're right I should have just called you. And just so you
know, the drawer was open.
Strange how you found Dr. Hartford's things though.
RAE: Well, you know sometimes I am just so
curious, (frowning) it's not always a good trait. And this collecting
you're doing of this memorabilia I am fascinated.
I would love to see it some time, but now I've got to go, I've got
some students coming by.... by later. (Trying to leave) Alright.
STEPHEN: (Stopping her) Oh wait, if you could just
wait a few more minutes, I just have to talk to you about something,
(Cont.) Just.... just a few minutes.
almost grimaces. Ominous music is playing. Haver goes to the door
and shuts it. The scene closes on the closed door. Very sinister.
I was hoping (pointing to himself) that you could fill me in on
your visit with Troy MacIver. (Gesturing) Just tell me any
little thing that he said (Grinning)
Scene Five: Haver as ominously shut Rae inside his office with
him. He begins to question her about her visit with Troy, earlier
that day. It is obvious now that Haver is doing it to find out
if Troy revealed anything about him.
RAE: Weelll, he didn't really say that much. He
has no idea who poisoned him, tried to make it look like a suicide.
STEPHEN: (Stand right next to her, nodding) Hmmm!
RAE: You know what he did? He talked about you
STEPHEN: (Looking at her with a pleasant expression
on his face) Did he?
RAE: Yes he did. He likes you very much.
STEPHEN: Well, what can I say.
Haver walks around the room.
(Cont.) You know when you.... when you first work with a patient,
it's very important (gesturing) to put them at ease, make them feel
relaxed (sits on his desk)--
STEPHEN: An.....An.... And th....then it's amazing
what they reveal.
RAE: I know, yeeeesss. Yes I do,
I know what's that like.
both appear to be trying to out shrink the other throughout their
You know, uh, in fact you are belove'd, throughout
RAE: Yes, you are.
nods, and continues to stare at her.
You know for instance, let me give you an example, Mavis, you know,
the nurse that gave Troy those passes?
takes a sip of her coffee. For an instant Haver looks down, then
returns his gaze on her.
(Cont.) She is..... or was.... oh, your biggest
fan (drinking the coffee).
is looking down, with an odd expression on his face.
Yes. Her death was a very sad day for everybody there. (Softly)
All of us. (Bending closer, smiling) What else did Troy say? (Standing
up, in front of her).
RAE: That was, that was basically it.
his head, and smiles, leaning close into her.
(Cont.) You know I have a confession to make.
at her amused.
I did, uh, take a little peek at your manuscript.
(Lifting his eyebrow) Hmmm. Back to the good doctor's license and
diploma (snorts, and flashing a big grin).
STEPHEN: Oh did you?
RAE: I hope you don't mind.
STEPHEN: Please, please, tell me wha.... what
do you think?
RAE: (Picking it up) Well, I think it is terrific.
I (looking at the cover, pausing, shaking her head, and patting
it) you know, it's so interesting to read (rubbing
it) about your take on the Love Child Killer.
You know I was struck by something, the doctor who was convicted
of killing (ominous music) those six women, (looking
at him, as if she is trying to analyze his reaction) he burned himself
to death, in prison.
STEPHEN: (Flashing a emotional look of sorrow)
Very tragic, yes.
RAE: Yes, very tradgic.You made
an odd comment (putting down the manuscript; frowns) you said that
(walking up towards him and leaning in very close to him) fire is
horrible,(emphasizing this, obviously to get him to react; she looks
closely at him, trying to analyze his reaction) and
looks down. It appears he is trying to control his emotions. He
To some people it can be.
walks away. As she talks he is about to put down his coffee mug
on the piano. His emotion changes, he is apparently thrown by,
and deeply effected by her question.
Your grandparents were burned to death in a fire, weren't they,
She goes over to the piano, and puts her hand on it, looking over
(Shaken, but trying to hide it.) Haha, where did
you hear that (Grinning to hide being upset)?
RAE: Your brother, remember? I saw him at the APA
convention, last year.
apparently feelings confident that she that she has upset Stephen.
Haver is thrown by all this, he quickly tries to hide it.
Yes (his voice catching), yes of course you did (laughing to make
it appear it is nothing).
RAE: (Laughing) But--
STEPHEN: Well, (Still upset, apparently) I, uh....
(pursing his lips and frowning) that is true, my grandparents died
in a house fire, (breathing deeply) I was at camp at the time, so
STEPHEN: ....so, I wasn't--
interrupts him, he looks surprised, and disturbed.
....that's not what he said....
freezes, upset by what she said. His composure seems to be completely
(Cont.) ....he said you were there. And, yo.... you barely got out.
is upset, surprised, but this remark. It has completely thrown
him. He no longer is in control of the situation.
(She seems pleased at finally being in control) You know your brother
(almost smirking grin) told me alot about you.
seems very disturbed, but his face is blank and devoid of expression.
Scene Six: In Haver's office, Rae has confronted him about the
death by fire of his grandparents, and has caught him in a lie
about being there when it occurred.
(Swallowing hard) Sooo, what version did good, old Kenny tell
RAE: Ooooh, you mean there is more than one version?
laughs trying to pass it off as nothing. Rae laughs too.
Oh, yes there is. That one came from a reporter,
and she didn't even get half it it right (walking off).
RAE: Like what?
STEPHEN: (Exhaling) Will, for instance, (sniffs)
there's word out that both of my.... both of my....
He is about
to sit on the desk, but nearly sits on Rae's coffee mug, so he
picks it up, and hands it to her.
STEPHEN: (Cont.) ....both of my grandparents burned to
death to death in my grandmother's.... bedroom. (Putting his fist
to his mouth; sniffs)....
RAE: Uh, hmm.
STEPHEN: My grandfather would never
go into my grandmother's bedroom, he hated her.
He never went in there!
RAE: (Putting her fingers on her face, as if
in thought) Ooohhh.
STEPHEN: He hated her.
RAE: (Motioning) Well, that.... that must be
why everyone everyone was so fascinated because (looking off as
if thinking this trough) your grandfather was..... in a wheelchair,
he was bound to it. And yet, they found they found the chair in
the hallway, he wasn't in it.
STEPHEN: (Shaking his head in denial) Not even
RAE: Ahhh. Well....
(Nods his head) Hmmm.
I mean, course you know, I mean, you were there.
Thank God, you....you managed to escape (taking another sip of
STEPHEN: (As if back in thought) Out of a second
story window, yes. (Sighing; sniffs obviously troubled by the
memory) Look the that, uh, other story I tell about the camp....
STEPHEN: I tell that because-uh (frowning), well,
it was a painful memory.
Yeess, of course.
(Looking down, affected) So what else, did my brother tell you?
RAE: (Pauses for a moment) About the two of you,
that he was the older brother. He also talked about.... (slight
pause for effect) your mother.
gives an ironic, almost scoffing, laugh. He raises his eyebrows.
(Cont.) She was really a free-spirit, I guess, huh?
STEPHEN: Good old Mom!
STEPHEN: Always walking around listening to that....
(apparently disgusted) songbird of the street people.
RAE: Who would that be?
STEPHEN: Ah.... (a disgusted tone in his voice;
making a face) Janice Rivers.
RAE: (Chuckling) Oh, dear!
STEPHEN: (Ironic laugh; putting his fist to his
mouth in thought) Ah, died of a heroin overdose, I believe, . It
was a (raises his eyebrows) mercy killing. (Laughing) Couldn't sing
a note (Laughing; biting his thumb).
RAE: (Chucking along with him) Well, I guess your
mother (egging him on) was more interested in music.... than you?
flashes an unamused, and rather evil glare. His eyes are rolled
up to the top.
Rae!? She loved use very much. (Fiddling his fingers) Now you have
to stop listening to my brother. (Getting up) He is a li-ar!
(Slight laugh) He is the biggest liar there ever was.
RAE: I thought.... I thought he was very nice.
is still laughing, trying to cover his emotions. To keep himself
in check. Rae goes over to him.
(Cont.) Ahh, you know I..... I..... I haven't heard from him, or
heard anything about him.... wha....wha.... what is he.... hmmm....

(Cont.) What is he doing.... (looks at Stephen) lately?
STEPHEN: (Speaking very softly, and oddly) Dropped
out of sight, I guess.
music. Slowly he turns to look at Rae, with a very strange look
on his face. Rae turns her head and gazes at him.
(not sure how much time has elapsed) Jessica is walking down
the hallway, towards Haver's office. She knocks on the door.
(Calling out to Stephen) Dr. Haver? You there?
is no answer.
(Talking to herself, confused) I could have sworn he had office
She is about
to walk off when Haver quickly answers the door. Acting and
looking as if nothing is wrong.
JESSICA: Hiii! Um, sorry to interrupt I was wondering
(gesturing) if I left the key to my apartment.
is standing by the door, which is such that she cannot see into
his office. He seems also to be purposefully blocking the view
of his office with his body. He feigns innocence.
Oh, the key, yes, yes, yes (reaches for it)....
JESSICA: Ahhhh (Sighing in relief)!
STEPHEN: I found it on my floor....
hands her the keys. Though it appears he has probably made a copy
....you just saved me a trip.
JESSICA: Thank-you, I've been looking for this
everywhere. I haftha (motioning) go to class, but
I'll talk to you later.
STEPHEN: Looking foward to it.
looks very smug, after she has walked off. He closes the door,
and looks smugly at a pair of duplicate keys to Jessica's place.
(Talking to himself) Looking very much forward
to it. (Looking at the keys) Very much indeed.
looks towards the back of his office. Though the camera stays
focused on him. He talks to Rae, but we do not see her. Apparently
she is unconscious, he either killed her, knocked her out, or
she is unconscious because the coffee he gave her was drugged.
Unless you offer some kind of objection, Rae.
has a smug look on has face. He walks past the view of the camera,
towards the rear of his office. More ominous music is playing.
Then the camera focuses on his closed office door.
