TIME LINE EARTH: V THE FINAL VISIT

FADE IN:

EXT. SPACE - MORNING
                                                            
TEIRRAH is 100 feet long by 10 feet wide and 10 feet tall.
She is a spaceship from Planet Xelah and has a
bioluminescent skin, which is smooth, and similar to
Elephant Hide. She is organic in nature, and obeys all
commands.
                                                            
Teirrah is in space above Planet Earth.
                                                            
 
INT. TEIRRAH - MORNING
                                                            
RELEVART is a Sreppan, he is 9 feet tall, has long legs,
arms and a muscular body. He has proportionately large hands
and feet, but is not clumsy. His head is long and narrow,
and his face is relatively flat and human like in
appearance.
                                                            
Relevart is strapped into a chair sitting in front of a
console inside Teirrah.
                                                            
                       RELEVART
Teirrah go to the surface and
land.
                                                            
 
EXT. SPACE - MORNING
                                                            
Teirrah instantly shoots down from space and lands on the
surface.
                                                            
The atmosphere is dense, brown and still. Sunlight barely
penetrates to the black glass-like ground.
                                                            
 
INT. TEIRRAH - MORNING
                                                            
                       TEIRRAH (VO)
Relevart do you think it is wise
to have landed on this planet?
      (Pause)
You know the consequences as well
as I if we are caught in this
Galaxy.
                                                            

2.

                       RELEVART
We went over this already Teirrah.
No one will find out we have been
here.
                                                            
                       TEIRRAH
Relevart the atmosphere can not
sustain life, wear a protective
suite.
                                                            
Teirrah releases Relevart from the seat.
                                                            
Relevart stands up and walks to a wall, he pushes his hands
against it as he walks forward.
                                                            
 
EXT. SURFACE - MORNING
                                                            
Relevart is enveloped in a skin like membrane as he exits
Teirrah.
                                                            
                       RELEVART (VO)
Stay here, I'll call if I need
you.
                                                            
Relevart heads off.
                                                            
LATER:
                                                            
Relevart is walking along, periodically stopping testing the
soil.
                                                            
LATER:
                                                            
Relevart scans the horizon.
                                                            
                       RELEVART (VO)
The landscape doesn't seem natural
Teirrah, judging by the condition
of it.
                                                            
                       TEIRRAH (VO)
I agree Relevart.
                                                            
LATER:
                                                            
                       RELEVART (VO)
Sample the soil in this area
Teirrah.
                                                            

3.

                       TEIRRAH (VO)
You have located highly
concentrated, pure Uranium
Relevart.
                                                            
Relevart picks up as many pieces as he can hold.
                                                            
                       RELEVART (VO)
I didn't expect to find such a
large quantity.
      (Pause)
Teirrah come to this location.
                                                            
Relevart picks up all he can find.
                                                            
                       RELEVART (VO)
Wait till the others see what I
found.
                                                            
 
INT. ABOARD TEIRRAH - AFTERNOON
                                                            
                       RELEVART
Teirrah, storage area.
                                                            
Teirrah forms a pouch. Relevart stacks the pellets of
Uranium inside.
                                                            
                       RELEVART (VO)
Teirrah, its time to head home,
seat and console.
                                                            
Relevart sits down.
                                                            
                       RELEVART
Take me out ten thousand selim and
stop.
      (Pause)
Front viewer Teirrah.
                                                            
The front nose of Teirrah turns clear.
                                                            
                       RELEVART
What kind of a civilization would
do this to themselves?
                                                            
                       TEIRRAH (VO)
You know what kind Relevart.

INT. JOHN'S OFFICE - DAY
                                                            
TIFFANY SCHULTZ, 40 years old, Long blond hair, blue eyes,
5'10" tall.
                                                            
JOHN HERZOG, 40 years old, dirty blond hair, brown eyes.
6'1" tall.
                                                            
TIFFANY walks in JOHN'S office.
                                                            
                       JOHN
There is always next Sunday Joyce.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Excuse me John.
                                                            
John is startled.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
I'm sorry I didn't hear what you
said.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Oh nothing, I was reminiscing in
the past.
      (Pause)
What can I do for you Tiff?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Sorry to disturb you. These papers
need your attention immediately.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Oh Shit, more papers?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Sorry John but these are important
and can't wait.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I know, its not your fault
Tiffany, I'll take care of them
right away.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
John you look stressed, you should
get away from here once in a
while, you know live it up.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Sometimes I wish I could get away
from here Tiff, but there is too
much work for me to do, and I'm
too wrapped up in it to take a

                       JOHN (cont'd)
break.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Good, then its settled.
      (Pause)
Pick me up at eight PM tonight.
                                                            
Tiffany writes on a piece of paper.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
This is my address, see you then.
                                                            
 
INT. LIMO - NIGHT
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
The Opera was great John, I
enjoyed seeing Sea of Sin and
Delight again.
                                                            
                       JOHN
If you enjoyed that you are really
going to love dinner.
                                                            
The Limo pulls up in front of a pizzeria.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
      (Sarcastically)
Oh, a pizzeria how appealing John.
                                                            
                       JOHN
What, you don't like it?
      (Pause)
We must try the white pizza I'm
told it's the best in the whole
world.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
You certainly do need to get out
more don't you?
      (Pause)
I'm going to make it my purpose in
life to ensure that you do.
                                                            
 
INT. LAB ONE - MORNING
                                                            
BILL FRANKLIN, 36 years old, brown hair ring, bald on top,
brown eyes, black frame glasses, 5'10" tall, portly.
                                                            
                       BILL
You got here quick.
                                                            

6.

                       JOHN
I really want to know what you
discovered.
                                                            
                       BILL
The hair sample from your
grandfather we used to test had
the same DNA as your son Chris.
Even though they are two
generations apart they're
identical in every way.
      (Pause)
And as you know John, no two
persons could ever have the same
Genetic make up.
      (Pause)
Your father's sample was quite
different as was yours from the
others.
      (Pause)
We found an anomaly that can't be
explained. your son and your
grandfather each had twenty four
pairs of Chromosomes. That extra
pair as far as we can determine
have no function in the human
body.
                                                            
 
INT. HALLWAY - MORNING
                                                            
John and Bill are walking down a hall.
                                                            
                       JOHN
It is entirely possible that those
additional Chromosomes on the male
side of my family produce clones
every third generation.
      (Pause, out loud)
Natural cloning, what an idea.
What do you think Bill?
                                                            
                       BILL
Yes it may be their function, but
I think more testing should be
done.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Imagine the possibilities of such
a reality, cloned people. That
will be my new project.
                                                            
 

7.

INT. JOHN'S LAB - DAY
                                                            
FRED SNITZER, 38 years old, brown hair, brown eyes, 5'6"
tall.
                                                            
John hands FRED a piece of paper.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Fred take a look, and tell me what
you think.
                                                            
                       FRED
How could this be possible John?
      (Pause)
Where did these Chromosomes come
from?
                                                            
                       JOHN
I can't answer that question right
now Fred, but I want to start over
and incorporate them into our new
map.
                                                            
                       FRED
John are you serious? You want me
to scrap all the work we've done
so far?
                                                            
                       JOHN
Yes, and maybe someday it will
come in handy, but we are going in
a different direction.
                                                            
                       FRED
So, tell me John, what's so unique
about the new profile?
                                                            
                       JOHN
It is my wife's DNA.
                                                            
                       FRED
You're going to clone your wife?
Oh John, you'll be like fifty-nine
when she turns eighteen, that's
sick.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I'm not going to clone a wife, you
sick puppy, I'm going to clone a
daughter.
                                                            

8.

                       FRED
Oh well, as if that makes a
difference!
                                                            
                       JOHN
Yes it does, it makes all the
difference in the world.
      (Pause)
Remember Fred I took you in when
you had nothing and your family
was out on the street. I think you
owe me a little gratitude. All I
want in return is for you to work
with me.
                                                            
                       FRED
OK, have it your way John.
                                                            
 
INT. JOHN'S OFFICE - DAY
                                                            
JOSH FARNER, 44 years old, black hair, green eyes, 5'8"
tall.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Come in Josh, have a seat.
                                                            
                       JOSH
I have a written report from Bill
showing a disturbing increase at
our animal clone clinics. In one
month fetus failure rates went
from 5.8 to 9.8 percent.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Does the report give an
explanation as to why there was an
increase?
                                                            
                       JOSH
Bill and his staff are still
investigating, however, he states
in the report, possible
contamination.
                                                            
                       JOHN
What contamination is he referring
to?
                                                            

9.

                       JOSH
That's the part they don't know
yet, but Bill and his team are
sure they will have an answer
shortly.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I'll make it a point to see Bill
later today, and we'll discuss the
report at length.
      (Pause)
After I speak with him, we will
get together and discuss the
report further.
                                                            
 
INT. BILL'S OFFICE IN LAB ONE - AFTERNOON
                                                            
                       JOHN
Tell me what's happening in the
cloning lab? I'm concerned about
the report you sent to Josh.
                                                            
                       BILL
John it's the Damnedest thing I've
ever seen, but I believe my team
and I have figured out exactly
what is going wrong.
      (Pause)
Last week I sampled Petri dishes
coming out of the sterilizers for
bacteria, and found something
similar to Rickettsia. DNA
profiling reveled a type we have
not seen before.
      (Pause)
The bacteria begins its life cycle
like Rickettsia, but the new
strain mutates.
      (Pause)
We immediately went to work to
eliminate it, but so far have not
been able to do so. Its highly
resistant to all sterilizing
methods we currently use.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Keep working on finding a solution
as soon as possible Bill.
      (Pause)
Oh, by the way, next month is the
S.E.T.A. show, and they have
invited me to speak at the opening
ceremony. Would you be interested

                       JOHN (cont'd)
in going as my guest?
                                                            
                       BILL
Yes I would, I haven't been at one
for a long time.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Great, I'll have Tiffany make
arrangements.
                                                            
 
INT. S.E.T.A. SHOW - MORNING
                                                            
John is at a podium finishing a speech.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Thank you for allowing G.O.D.S.
the opportunity to speak today.
                                                            
 
INT. EXPO - AFTERNOON
                                                            
John and Bill are standing in front of a table.
                                                            
                       BILL
What would someone attending a
science and electronics show want
with an anti tank missile
launcher?
                                                            
                       JOHN
Move on to the next isle Bill this
war stuff gives me the creeps.
                                                            
LATER:
                                                            
Bill walks over to a large black box and knocks on it.
                                                            
                       BILL
Wow look at this, a lead box the
size of Manhattan.
                                                            
                       SALESMAN
Oh sir, it's not just a lead box.
This is a gamma sterilizer.
      (Pause)
Model G3R.
                                                            
                       BILL
How large is this box?
                                                            

11.

                       SALESMAN
Well sir, outside it's twelve by
twelve feet, and the inside
dimensions are four by four feet.
      (Pause)
Safety features include
sophisticated sensors which detect
forms of life as small as insects,
and if accidentally placed inside
will not allow operation of the
unit until corrected.
      (Pause)
It is our top of the line model
and uses variable settings. The
highest setting produces one
hundred million Curies for one
second. I assure you Gentleman
nothing will survive that.
      (Pause)
Also the concrete lining is mixed
with an iron silicon alloy and
will absorb all the Gamma
Radiation emitted.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Bill we have solved our problem.
      (Pause)
I'll order one each for the labs.
                                                            
 
INT. JOHN'S OFFICE - AFTERNOON
                                                            
John is reading a Newspaper with his feet up on his desk.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (Out loud)
Middle East quiet for now.
      (Pause)
That's a positive sign.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY (VO)
      (Filtered)
John, Jasper Connelly is here to
see you.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (In intercom)
Send him in Tiff.
                                                            
John removes his feet from his desk and folds the paper.
                                                            
JASPER CONNELLY, 58 years old, white hair, mutton chops and
a mustache, brown eyes, 5'6" tall, heavy.
                                                            

12.

JASPER walks in, shakes John's hand and sits down.
                                                            
                       JOHN
How are you Jasper?
      (Pause)
Its been quite a while since we've
seen each other.
      (Pause)
How goes the Zoo business?
                                                            
                       JASPER
I never felt better, and
everything is well at the Zoo,
except our beloved Chimpanzee
Zouse has passed away.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Oh, I'm sorry to hear.
                                                            
                       JASPER
He is the reason I'm here. The
shareholders voted to have Zouse
cloned, and I immediately thought
of you.
                                                            
LATER:
                                                            
John sees Jasper to the door.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Send over a sample of hair or
blood, and we will begin
immediately upon receipt, and I
will personally work on the
project.
                                                            
 
INT. JOHN'S LAB - NIGHT
                                                            
                       JOHN (VO)
      (Writing)
I have been working alone after
hours on my daughters DNA
sequence. Fred doesn't know that I
have spliced in parts, and
replaced whole Genes in her
profile with different versions.
      (Pause)
I want a daughter who will excel
in life, so I have given her
enhanced strength, improved
agility, and better coordination
than normal humans. I also added
superior vision along with super
            (MORE)

13.

                       JOHN (cont'd)
intelligence for her school years
and beyond.
      (Pause)
I figured out how to splice the
Twenty-Fourth Pair of Chromosomes
successfully into DNA. I settled
against inserting the strand in my
daughter because only males in my
family had the Genes. I'm unsure
what they would do in a female.
      (Pause)
I have another idea, I will add
the extra Chromosomes to the
chimp.
                                                            
 
INT. JOHN'S OFFICE - DAY
                                                            
Tiffany walks in John's office.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
I had a marvelous time last night
John.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I have to admit Tiff I enjoyed
being with you too.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
See, I said it would be fun to go
out and see the world, away from
the mountain.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I would like to continue going
out, if you want to?
      (Pause)
But remember what I said in the
beginning, they are not dates. I
have had only one true love in my
life and she is no longer with me.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
I understand John, but you must
understand I will never give up
hope. As long as we know each
other I'll always wish we could be
together, but until such time I'll
enjoy your company.
                                                            
John's phone rings, he answers it.
                                                            

14.

                       JOHN
      (In phone)
John Herzog.
      (Pause)
Hello Jasper.
                                                            
                       JASPER (VO)
      (Filtered)
John, I have some disturbing news
about Zouse. Can you come to the
Zoo in person? I don't want to
discuss it on the phone.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I'll make so time this afternoon,
see you then.
                                                            
 
INT. JASPER'S OFFICE - AFTERNOON
                                                            
                       JASPER
The group dominant male rejected
Zouse and separated him from his
mother. He proceeded to beat Zouse
about the face and body.
      (Pause)
By the time my staff could
intervene Zouse's arm had been
broken. He was rushed to the on
site Veterinary Hospital. X-rays
were taken, the bone was set, and
Zouse's arm was put in a cast.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Oh, I'm sorry to hear what
happened to the little monkey.
                                                            
                       JASPER
Amazing is the only way to
describe the progress Zouse made
after the X-rays. Zouse was as
active as he was before his broken
arm. He had no outward signs of
pain, and he used the arm as well
as his other.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Thats amazing.
                                                            
                       JASPER
After careful observation we
decided to X-ray Zouse's arm
again, it fully healed.

After the second set of X-rays his
personality changed significantly.
His muscles developed to an
enormous proportion in relation to
his stature, and Zouse's
intelligence increased ten fold.
      (Pause)
Then, without any warning he died.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I feel awful for your loss.
                                                            
                       JASPER
I hate to say it John, I think
something went wrong with that
clone.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I apologize for the trouble you
encountered Jasper. Please give my
sincere apology to your staff as
well.
      (Pause)
I will personally investigate and
fix any problems we discover.
G.O.D.S. will reimburse the Zoo
for all it's losses and provide a
new clone at no cost.
                                                            
 
INT. JOHN'S LAB - DAY
                                                            
                       JOHN (VO)
      (Writing)
What could have gone wrong? Zouse
was born normal, he developed
exactly as predicted.
      (Pause)
He was busted up pretty bad after
the dominant male tried to do away
with him.
      (Pause)
The Vet X-rayed his arm.
      (Pause)
X-rayed.
                                                            
John gets up and walks to his grandfathers journals. He
opens book one and reads.
                                                            
LATER:
                                                            

16.

                       JOHN
I called you here bill, because I
want you to listen to some entries
from my Grandfather Fritz's
Journal.
      (Pause)
He was a Geneticist in the old
country during the war.
      (Pause)
This passage is from book one.
                                                            
John opens book 1 and reads.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (Reading)
I'm documenting our progress in
this journal on diseases of the
Human Body.
      (Pause)
As time passes Rudolph and myself
will attempt to decode the
relationship between diseases and
Man.
                                                            
John closes book 1 and picks up another book.
                                                            
                       JOHN
This is book thirteen, listen
closely.
      (Pause)
Rudolph and I installed a
Fluoroscope to peer into
Homosapiens. I adjusted the
Roentgenogram flow using myself
first.
                                                            
                       BILL
How about that, Fritz's writing
changed.
                                                            
John closes book 13 and picks up book 28.
                                                            
                       JOHN (VO)
      (Reading)
Five years passed. I discovered,
treated and cured many plagues of
Homosapiens. I'm not a Doctor of
Medicine.
      (Pause)
I mapped most of the Human Genome.
                                                            
John looks up from the book.
                                                            

17.

                       JOHN
The transformation is quite
phenomenal Bill. It seems the more
radiation Fritz received from the
Fluoroscope the more intelligent
he became, and the less he had to
say.
                                                            
                       BILL
Its amazing how much of a change
came over Fritz.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I think it might have something to
do with radiation and the extra
Chromosomes.
                                                            
                       BILL
Do you think the Chromosomes
effected Chris and Zouse?
                                                            
                       JOHN
They had nearly identical
situations. After breaking an arm
both received X-rays, they then
became more intelligent, and their
strength increased. Each had more
X-rays, and they became smarter
still, and stronger.
      (Pause)
Shortly after the last set of
X-rays they both died. Yet, my
grandfather lived for years after
his repeated exposure.
      (Pause)
I have an idea, thanks for
listening Bill, I'll talk with you
later.
                                                            
Bill leaves, John writes in his journal.
                                                            
                       JOHN (VO)
      (Writing)
Repeated exposure, that's the key,
I now understand what the
Twenty-Fourth Pair of Chromosomes
do in the human body.
      (Pause)
Repeated radiation exposure is
necessary to sustain a person, but
how much, and for how long?
      (Pause)
I will experiment with samples of
            (MORE)

bacteria.
                                                            
 
INT. JOHN'S LAB - MORNING
                                                            
John places some bacteria in a petri dish and places it in
the irradiator.
                                                            
LATER:
                                                            
John looks into the petri dish. The bacteria divided in two,
both are the size of a finger.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (Out loud)
Dam, what the Hell happened?
      (Pause)
Amazing, this is incredible I must
repeat the experiment.
                                                            
John writes in his journal.
                                                            
                       JOHN (VO)
      (Writing)
The results were better than
expected, I could actually see
individual DNA strands using only
10X magnification.
      (Pause)
I repeated the experiment three
more times. The result was a five
gallon bucket full of cucumber
sized Bacilli. Although I was
fascinated by what I saw, I was
slightly freaked out.
                                                            
 
INT. TIFFANY'S OFFICE - DAY
                                                            
TITLE: ONE YEAR LATER
                                                            
John walks up to the front of Tiffany's desk and places his
hands on the edge, he leans slightly forward.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Hi Tiffany, how are you today?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Just peachy John, thank you for
asking.
      (Pause)
And how are you?
                                                            

19.

                       JOHN
Oh I'm fine too.
      (Pause)
Would you like to see a movie in
the down stairs theater tonight?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
What's playing?
                                                            
                       JOHN
Any movie you want to see.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Wow, what's the occasion?
                                                            
                       JOHN
You will have to come to find out.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
OK I'll be there, what time?
                                                            
                       JOHN
Seven PM, I'll meet you in the
lobby, you can dress casual.
      (Pause)
What movie would you like to see?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Oh I think I would like to see the
movie that came out last year, you
know the one John, it shattered
all box office records.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Yes, I know which one you mean.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
That one will be perfect.
                                                            
 
INT. THEATER LOBBY - NIGHT

You look stunning tonight, Tiff.
      (Pause)
Would they like, ah, I mean, would
you like some pop corn?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
      (Chuckling)
Yes, that sounds delicious.

One bucket of popcorn buttered,
and two large diet colas, please.

John and Tiffany sit down. Tiffany looks around.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Where is everyone John.
                                                            
                       JOHN
This is our private showing of the
movie. I closed this part of the
theater complex just for you
Tiffany. All the employees are
working just for us tonight.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
OOH John, you make me feel so
special.

                       TIFFANY
That was so sad. Why did she have
to die in the end?
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (Sneering)
I guess that's the way the script
was written.
                                                            
John takes Tiffany's hand in his.
                                                            
                       JOHN
The reason I wanted to see you
tonight Tiffany, I've been lonely
these past few years, and I
thought a companion would be nice.
                                                            

21.

                       TIFFANY (VO)
Oh here it comes, he's going to
ask me to marry him.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I know in the past you lived a
certain lifestyle, and enjoyed the
finer things in life, but since
your Ex husband spent all your
inheritance you no longer can, so
I have a proposition for you.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY (VO)
Oh that's so cute, he meant to say
proposal, he must be nervous too.
                                                            
                       JOHN
My proposal will be strictly
business.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Business, John, I don't
understand?
                                                            
                       JOHN
I want a daughter Tiffany, but not
in the usual way.
                                                            
Tiffany pulls her hand away.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
OH, now I understand, you want me
to have your child out of Wedlock.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Well no, you would be more like, a
Surrogate Mother. There would be
no need for physical contact
between us.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
What kind of woman do you think I
am John?
                                                            
                       JOHN
I think you are a sweet, caring
person who would help a friend in
need.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
No, that's not what I think, I
think you're a pervert. That's all
I am to you, just a friend?
                                                            

22.

                       JOHN
Tiffany, I told you from the
beginning I did not want a
relationship.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
I've heard enough, it's time for
me to leave.
      (Pause)
You can find another secretary as
well, because I quit!
                                                            
Tiffany walks to the end of the row of seats.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (Shouting)
If you do I will make you rich
beyond your wildest dreams.
                                                            
Tiffany stops dead in her tracks, turns and walks back.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
How rich, and what exactly would I
have to do?

One hundred million dollars will
be the initial payment.

Then twenty million a year on my
daughters birthday, till she turns

I just want you to know it's
nothing personal, I like you a lot
John, after all we are family. But
I must get back to a lifestyle
more suited to my family and

unreasonable to keep my mouth
shut.

Wouldn't you agree?

No.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I wanted witnesses present, to
hear what I'm going to tell you.
      (Pause)
Your plan to blackmail me has
backfired, therefore, you'll get
nothing from me.
      (Pause)
I will not turn you over to the
authorities. Instead, you will
stay here at G.O.D.S. working in
lab two, as an assistant to the
lowest seniority person on staff.

Furthermore, I never want to see
your face again, when I'm in a

You will stay here at G.O.D.S. and
never leave for as long as you
live.
      (Pause)
Your activities will be monitored
twenty-four hours a day, if you
try to leave I will have you
arrested on charges of blackmail
and other things, and put in jail
for the rest of your life.

Mr. Herzog I have one last
question.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Yes Senator.
                                                            
                       SENATOR MURPHY
Why does your company want to
clone Human Beings?
                                                            
                       JOHN
That question is the easiest to
answer of all the questions the
panel has asked thus far Senator.
      (Pause)
Millions of couples in our great
country want to love, and care for
their own children, but for
whatever reasons they are unable
to conceive.
      (Pause)
Adoption should be the perfect
solution, however, red tape,
astronomical fees, and years on
waiting lists make that option
virtually impossible for most
people.
      (Pause)
My option, on the other hand
Senator, would be relatively
inexpensive, and the waiting
period would be no longer than
nine months.
      (Pause)
In addition to those benefits, the
parents would be able to choose
some features they would like
their child to have.

And the baby will be born healthy,

Mr. Herzog, I've been a Wet Nurse

royalty of England for many a
year, I have.
      (Pause)
And I've nursed a lot of infants
in my time too, but none of them
were as aggressive as Evea.
      (Pause)
I must say the suction on that
child is like having my nipple
attached to a Hoover.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Well, I'll admit she is strong for
a baby. But That's a bit of an
exaggeration don't you think Fran.
                                                            
                       FRAN
No sir, not at all, why I'm as
tender as can be in both Teats, I
am.

Should I replace you?

I'm fine John, good to see you.
      (Pause)
What can I do for you?
                                                            
                       JOHN
I recently applied for a license
to clone humans, and unfortunately
the license was denied. I am some
what distraught because I must
have that license or my business
could be in jeopardy.
                                                            
                       MARK
You should have come to me from
the start, but no need to worry
I'll take care of the problem.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Thank you Mark, is there anything
I can do for you?
                                                            
                       MARK
Well John as a matter of fact I'm
a member of a charity that is a
little short of cash, you may have
heard of it, The Relief Fund.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Oh yes, I'm familiar with them, a
worthy organization indeed.
      (Pause)
Would a donation of five million
dollars be of some benefit?
                                                            
                       MARK
Why that would be an extremely
generous donation indeed.

My team and I have completed the

As per your instructions it has
been designed so the last ten

adult height and weight will be,
along with eye color, IQ and sex
of their child.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Bill, I have decided all clones
will carry the Twenty-Fourth Pair
of Chromosomes. I feel the benefit
these Mutated Genes might one day
provide Mankind is worth any risk.
Even, though, I am not sure what
that might be, still I feel in my
heart it is the right thing to do.

Its utterly phenomenal, it is, how
much milk Evea drinks, she just
can't seem to get enough.
                                                            
                       DENISE
Evea is one incredible baby, she
is only two months old and sits up
by herself. She is as big as a two
year old, and when she squeezes my
fingers she stops the blood from
circulating.
      (Pause)
Oh, and when Evea stares at me
with those pitch black eyes I get
the willies.
                                                            

35.

                       FRAN
When she gets to staring at you,
she has a blank look on her face,
she does, and you feel as though
she is peering directly into your
soul, you do, its like she can see
what you are all about.
                                                            
                       DENISE
      (To John)
But we agree she is the sweetest
child we have ever cared for, and
whenever Evea is around we feel
relaxed and content as though we
don't have a care in the World.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I'm very happy with the care you
are giving Evea. I feel confident
I've chosen the right care givers.

                       MATT
Good news, the tests we performed
came out positive, which means you
shouldn't have difficulty carrying
a baby to full term.
      (Pause)
Have you decided the particulars
of your child?
                                                            
                       NATALIE
Well Matt, my husband Roger, was
six foot two. He had blond hair,
and the most stunning blue eyes
you could imagine, oh and he was
athletically built. We wanted our
first child to be a boy.
      (Pause)
I think, in Rogers memory, the
baby should be just like him, no
changes at all.
                                                            
                       MATT
OK, very good then, I will mark
the form basic clone, but just so
you are aware, these are some
other options we are able to offer
you. The basic price as you know,
is one thousand dollars tax free,
which includes at no additional
charge, a genetic disorder free
child.
      (Pause)
Keeping all features the same, and
changing the sex, would cost ten
thousand dollars. Adding an IQ
above one fifteen runs fifty
thousand per ten points, and so
on, till you get to the top tier.
A perfect human will cost one
million dollars.
      (Pause)
Since the cost is on the house can
I interest you in up-grading your
precious little package?

No, I don't want any changes thank
you.

OK, we will begin working on the
Genetic Map today. You will stay
here at G.O.D.S. as our special
guest until next week when we will
implant the egg. In about nine
months give or take a week or two
you'll have a bouncing bundle of
joy.

                       CHILD EVE
Hello, I'm Eve.
                                                            
Eve looks directly into Reed's eyes.
                                                            
Reed freezes in place for a moment, then shakes off the
stare.
                                                            
LATER:
                                                            
Natalie walks up to Eve and Reed.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
Reed its time to go.
      (Pause)
So what have you two been
building?
                                                            
                       CHILD EVE
This is The Earth, and five little
points of light are coming to
visit.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
Really? how interesting, come on
Reed we have to go.
                                                            
Natalie picks up Reed's pail and shovel and together Natalie
and Reed head up the beach.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
What on earth was that Girl
talking about?
                                                            
                       CHILD EVE

eyes, 5'10" tall.
                                                            
Eve is walking in the hall, she passes a small group of
students.
                                                            
                       JANICE W.
      (To Eve)
What sort of freak are you? Your
only ten years old in the twelfth
grade and you look like a woman.
                                                            
Eve looks into Janice's eyes.
                                                            
                       JANICE W.
STOP!
                                                            
JANICE looks away and begins to cry. Eve starts to walk off.
ROBERT almost trips Eve.
                                                            
                       CHILD EVE
      (To Robert)
Why did you do that?
                                                            
                       ROBERT G.
Cause you're so ugly you made my
girlfriend cry.
                                                            
                       CHILD EVE
I don't believe that was funny, in
fact, you could have hurt me.
                                                            
                       ROBERT G.
Get out of here you twit.
                                                            
Robert pushes eve, she catches herself before she falls. Eve
hits Robert in the throat with a Judo Thrust. Robert
collapses to the floor holding his throat and gagging.
Janice is holding on to Robert and falls to the floor with
him.
                                                            
                       CHILD EVE
I hope this doesn't affect our
relationship.

Eve turns to walk away.
                                                            
                       PRINCIPAL HORN (OC)
Not so fast young lady!
                                                            
Eve stops and turns around to face the Principle.
                                                            
                       CHILD EVE
I guess there will be different
adventures at a new school. Right
Principal Horn?
                                                            
                       PRINCIPAL HORN
This way Miss Herzog.
                                                            
 
INT. ST. NICK'S SCHOOL - DAY
                                                            
JOHN HERZOG, 50 years old, whitish blond hair, blue eyes,
6'1" tall.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I would like Eve to spend the last
six months of high school here at
Saint Nicholas.
                                                            
FATHER GALLAGHER, 67 years old, thinning white hair, hazel
eyes, 5'11" tall.
                                                            
                       FATHER GALLAGHER
      (Irish accent)
Well Mr. Herzog, looking at your
daughter's records I'm not sure
this school would be the proper
place to finish her education.
      (Pause)
I have noticed you have been very
generous to the schools that have
accepted Eve in the past. It says
here you have spent millions of
dollars building new wings on
those schools. Is that correct?
                                                            
                       JOHN
If its a donation you need thats
fine, as long as Eve attends this
school and stays till graduation.
                                                            
                       FATHER GALLAGHER
Now that you mention it we do have
blue prints for a new Church and
we are taking donations.
                                                            

46.

                       JOHN
OK, then its settled you get a new
Church, and I get piece of mind.
                                                            
 
INT. SISTER PATRICE'S CLASS - MORNING

black dress, brown eyes, 5'6" tall.
                                                            
                       SISTER PATRICE
      (Loud)
Did I see you Miss Herzog, talking
to Miss McLaughlin?
                                                            
                       CHILD EVE
No Sister I was not talking to
Cheryl.
      (Pause)
I was about to talk to her.
                                                            
Students laugh, Sister Patrice walks over to Eve.
                                                            
                       SISTER PATRICE
Hold out your hand and make a fist
young lady.
                                                            
Sister Patrice hits Eve on the hand with a pointer stick.
                                                            
                       CHILD EVE
Sister Patrice why are you always
picking on me?
                                                            
Sister Patrice hit's Eve on the hand again.
                                                            
                       CHILD EVE
Sister I would strongly recommend
that you not do that again,
because if you do you will not
like the outcome.
                                                            
Sister Patrice winds up and grimaces as she whacks the
pointer stick hard on Eve's hand. Instead of the top of her
hand Eve turns it over and the pointer stick hits Eve's
palm.
                                                            
                       CHILD EVE
Sister, you are about to see why
you should not have done that.
                                                            
Eve grabs the pointer stick and closes her fist. The pointer
stick crumbles in her hand and the remainder breaks in half
lengthwise.
                                                            

47.

                       SISTER PATRICE
      (Surprised)
You broke my stick, I can't
believe you broke my stick!
                                                            
Eve jumps up out of her seat.
                                                            
                       CHILD EVE
That's not all I'm going to break,
you Dammed Penguin, you miserable
Cannula.
                                                            
Eve springs forward and chases Sister Patrice around the
class room.
                                                            
                       CHILD EVE
Stay still you Acephalous Moron,
let me give you what you deserve.
                                                            
                       EVERYONE
      (Girls)
Go eve, go Eve.
                                                            
Sister Patrice opens the class door and runs out with Eve
swatting her Ass.

      (Soft)
Sit down Miss Herzog.
                                                            
                       SISTER PATRICE
      (Upset)
She is the essence of the devil
himself, I tell you.
                                                            
                       MOTHER SUPERIOR
      (Stern)
That will be all Sister Patrice.
      (To Eve, soft)
Is it true Miss Herzog? Did you
chase Sister Patrice around her
class room swatting her on the
bottom with a pointer stick you
broke earlier?
                                                            

48.

                       CHILD EVE
      (Hold back a laugh)
Yes.
                                                            
                       MOTHER SUPERIOR
      (Regular)
And did you also call her a
Penguin and a Cannula?
                                                            
                       CHILD EVE
Yes, I did.
                                                            
                       MOTHER SUPERIOR
      (Stern)
Well young woman you have gone too
far, I will have a meeting with
your father to discuss what
appropriate punishment you shall
have.

Here comes the Inquisitional Panel
Eve.
                                                            
A Priest and five Nun's walk single file into the room with
folders under their arms, and sit.
                                                            
                       FATHER GALLAGHER
      (Irish accent)
This board will make a
determination as to the status of
Miss Herzog's continuing education
here at Saint Nicholas School,
after listening to both sides in
the matter.
      (Pause)
Mother Superior may we hear from
you, please.
                                                            
                       MOTHER SUPERIOR
Let me start by saying...
                                                            
LATER:
                                                            

49.

                       SISTER PATRICE
And in conclusion it is my opinion
Miss Herzog should be expelled
from our School.
                                                            
                       FATHER GALLAGHER
Miss Herzog what do you have to
say for yourself?
                                                            
Eve stands up.
                                                            
                       CHILD EVE
First I want to thank Mr.
Gallagher, for allowing me to
speak at his Abattoir.
      (Pause)
Your casuistry is faulty, and I
believe all of you should
Cannulate, thank you for your
time.
                                                            
Eve sits down. The Priest and Nun's have a shocked look on
their faces.
                                                            
                       FATHER GALLAGHER
Well OK, we shall take a ten
minute break and return with the
verdict.
                                                            
LATER:
                                                            
                       FATHER GALLAGHER
John Herzog, father of Eve Herzog,
stand up with your daughter.
      (Pause)
It is the decision of the board
that Eve not be permitted to
complete the school term.
      (Pause)
Further more it is the decision of
the board that you both be
ex-communicated from our Church.
      (Pause)
What have you to say for yourself
Mr. Herzog?
                                                            
John walks up to the table.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (Agitated)
Who do you people think you are
talking to us that way, with your
holier than thou attitude?
      (Pause)
            (MORE)

50.

                       JOHN (cont'd)
It's quite obvious I made a poor
decision when I enrolled my
incredibly smart, and talented
daughter in such a weak, and
dysfunctional school.
      (Pause)
And what gives you the right to
force us out of the only Church we
have chosen to be part of?
                                                            
Father Gallagher stands up.
                                                            
                       FATHER GALLAGHER
What gives us the right Mr. Herzog
is the fact that we are the
Church, and the word of GOD.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (Angry)
Sit down and don't interrupt me
you Blasphemer.
      (Pause)
I have had enough of your
Inquisition. If EX-communication
is what you people want then go
right ahead and do what you think
you must.
      (Pause)
You don't worship GOD, your allied
with Devil.
      (Pause)
This institution is no longer
needed in our lives!
                                                            
John turns and walks back to eve.
                                                            
                       JOHN

                       MR. WILKINS
I'm fine John. How are you?
                                                            

51.

                       JOHN
The reason I called you here,
effective immediately I want your
firm to withdraw all funding for
the Saint Nicholas School project.
                                                            
                       MR. WILKINS
I will stop payment immediately
Mr. Herzog. What reason shall I
give to the School?
                                                            
                       JOHN
Don't bother to give a reason.
They will know why.

                       JOHN
Tony, a rift has been created
between Saint Nichols Church and
myself. I have cut off all
funding, and undoubtedly I will be
sued for breach of contract.
      (Pause)
Will you be able to handle the
matter quietly?
                                                            
                       TONY R.
I assure you John it will be dealt
with in a professional manor.
There are loopholes built into all
contracts my department writes.
      (Pause)
You will not be held responsible
for any further funding.
                                                            
                       JOHN
OK Tony, I'm sure you and your
department can handle this, thank
you.

remainder of your senior year, you
            (MORE)

52.

                       JOHN (cont'd)
will have tutors and study at
home.
      (Pause)
Immediately after you receive your
diploma, we will be leaving the
U.S., so I can visit my clone
Clinics around The World. During
that time, you will be studying at
various Universities in different
countries obtaining Degrees.
      (Pause)
I believe it is vital for you to
experience different cultures, and
problems facing humans first hand.
It will help you better understand
why G.O.D.S. clones Human Beings.
      (Pause)
How does that sound to you
Sweetie?
                                                            
                       CHILD EVE
I think that sounds terrific
Daddy, think of the adventures we
will have, exploring the World.

fight for our country.
      (Pause)
            (MORE)

53.

                       JOSH (cont'd)
Things are getting ugly out there,

the driver barely escaped with his
life.
      (Pause)
His company has refused to supply
us with those little packs of
cheese and crackers everyone
likes, and we're almost out of
them.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Oh, I love those little crackers.
Call the manufacturer directly and
arrange for a shipment by plane.
      (Pause)
Also Josh, set up a meeting

Remind me to send a memo to Alicia
for bids on remodeling our

                       JOSH
Oh, I almost forgot to tell you
John, the project you have been
working on for the past twenty
years, has finally been completed.

                       ADULT EVE
I'm not sure Daddy, I haven't
given much thought yet to what
field I want to spend my time in.

I would like you to join G.O.D.S.
and work with me in my office,
learning the day to day business.

make an awesome father daughter

younger, and one day you will need
to take over my watch, and
continue the work I started.

INT. SECURITY ROOM - AFTERNOON
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Scan the crowd using the
high-resolution cameras, I want to
locate a young man I saw earlier.
      (Pause)
There he is, that's him. I want
him brought to my fathers office,
and make sure he doesn't get away
from you.
                                                            
                       SECURITY GUARD
Yes Miss. Herzog, right away.
                                                            
 
INT. JOHN'S OFFICE - AFTERNOON
                                                            
Reed is pushed into John's office by two guards.
                                                            

57.

                       ADULT REED
What the Hell do you think your
doing? I'm an American Citizen you
can't treat me like this.
      (Pause)
Get me out of these handcuffs.
                                                            
Eve gets right in Reed's face.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
You're right we can't treat you
like this. But whom are you going
to tell?
      (Pause)
If we remove the handcuffs will
you promise to behave yourself.
                                                            
Eve motions for a guard to remove the handcuffs. Eve points
to a chair.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
      (To Reed)
Sit down over there and listen.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
      (To guards)
Stand outside the door.
                                                            
Eve sits in John's chair.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Tell me why you are protesting?
                                                            
Reed stands up.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Sit your sorry Ass down, or I'll
make you.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
Oh big talk from a wench like you.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
I'm sorry, but you have it all
wrong, I'm not a beer server, I'm
your worse nightmare, and if I
have to tell you again, I'm going
to knock the living Shit out of
you.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
I bet you would like to.
                                                            

58.

Reed sits down.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
Why did you have me dragged here?
                                                            
Eve wheels her chair next to Reed.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
You haven't answered my question
yet. Why are you protesting in
front of G.O.D.S.?
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
Because I'm disgusted with what
you do. You breed people to hate
our country, and you create people
to be perfect little humans, who
refuse to defend their country by
dodging the draft.
      (Pause)
That's why I protest in front of
your place.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
You are incorrect again, my father
does not breed people, and
definitely does not make clones
choose to disobey their
government. If they choose to do
so, it is because they, as you,
strongly believe in what they are
doing.
      (Pause)
I had you brought here, because
I'm a bit puzzled, I've never met
a clone who wanted to fight.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
What do you mean clone? I'm not
someone's pet, I'm a Human Being
with my own mind.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Oh you obviously are confused, do
you even know who you are?
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
Yes I do, I'm Reed, a Human Being
conceived by my parents eighteen
years ago, and born in California
U.S.A.
                                                            

59.

                       ADULT EVE
Do you know who I am?
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
Yah you're the daughter of that
Trillion Air John Herzog, the one
who makes copies of people.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Well you're close, that is who I
am, but you really don't remember
do you?
      (Pause)
I thought for sure you would know,
when I stared into your eyes
earlier.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
No, I honestly can't say I know
who you are.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Fifteen years ago you built a
funny looking sand castle on
Malibu Beach with a girl. Do you
remember that?
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
That, I do remember, my mother
kept repeating, what a strange
girl, and she warned me to stay
away from her.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
I was that girl.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
What? No way that couldn't have
been you.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Yes, that was me.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
What was that thing we built?
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
It was a model of The Earth.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
My mother was right, you are a
strange girl.
                                                            

60.

                       ADULT EVE
And as for you Mr. Reed, your
mother never told you the truth
about who you really are, and
after all these years, apparently
you never found out on your own,
either.
      (Pause)
You are an exact copy of your
father, and the first Human Clone
born in the United States.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
You're wrong I'm not a clone!
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
I'm not mistaken, you are a clone
and the first one, as well, I can
prove it to you.
                                                            
Eve slides over to a computer terminal and begins to type.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Bring your hunk of a body over
here, and take a look for
yourself.
                                                            
Reed reads the information on the computer screen.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
Lies all lies, none of its true,
you made it all up.
      (Pause)
Why do you want to tell lies about
me?
                                                            
Eve smacks Reed across the face knocking him off his chair.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
Ouch, Dam that hurt. Why did you
do that?
                                                            
Reed rubs his cheek and stands up.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
Dam girl, you got a mean right
hand.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Sit down, shut up and listen.
      (Pause)
Technically you are not the first
clone I am, but I'm different from
early clones. I've been
            (MORE)

61.

                       ADULT EVE (cont'd)
engineered, similar to the types
being born today.
      (Pause)
My father had a vision many years
ago, to produce disease free Human
Beings, and we are the result of
that. Though, he altered our Genes
by adding something unique to the
Chromosomes, an extra pair to be
exact, a twenty-fourth pair.
                                                            
Reed rubs his cheek.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
I still don't believe you.
                                                            
Eve takes a small mirror from a desk draw.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
My father keeps this mirror and
looks into it now and then to
remind himself he is not living in
a dream, that in fact his life is
reality.
      (Pause)
Look into it and see your reality.
      (Pause)
Look at your eyes around the
outside of the pupil, notice the
red circle around it.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
Yes I see it, look at that, I
wonder why I never noticed it
before?
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Because it only happens when you
get angry, and the angrier you get
the darker it becomes, but when
you calm down it disappears. It's
one of two side effects from the
extra pair of Chromosomes we all
have.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
What's the other one?
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
It has to do with radiation, it's
quite complex.
                                                            

62.

                       ADULT REED
Dam I'm a clone? Why didn't my
mother tell me the truth? If I
knew, I would never have driven
all the way to Colorado with my
friends and protested.
      (Pause)
Dam, Dam, Dam.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Protesting is the least of your
worries my friend, somehow word
got out to the government about
our little eye ability, and they
use it to separate clones from
non-clones.
      (Pause)
Non-clones go to Boot Camp, and
clones go to Interment Camps. For
the time being Mr. Reed, I urge
you to stay here, because you're
the first clone, undoubtedly,
you're on the top of the
government find list.
                                                            
 
EXT. NATALIE REEDS HOUSE, SANTA BARBRA - DAY
                                                            
Two men in suits are standing at Natalie's door, one pushes
the bell, Natalie opens the door.

Yes, can I help you?
                                                            
                       AGENT RODRIGUEZ
Natalie Reed?

Yes, I'm Mrs. Reed.

Hi, I'm agent Rodriguez with the
F.B.I., and this is my partner,

Yes what can I do for you?
                                                            
                       AGENT RODRIGUEZ
Is your son home?
                                                            

63.

                       NATALIE
No, I'm sorry he's not here.
      (Pause)
Is he in some sort of trouble?
                                                            
                       AGENT RODRIGUEZ
No Mam he's not in trouble with
us, but we need to speak with him.
Do you know where he can be
reached?
                                                            
                       NATALIE
Reed left for Colorado last week,
he and some friends were going to
protest at the headquarters of
G.O.D.S.
      (Pause)
He is a good boy, and has never
broken the law, or been in any
trouble before.
                                                            
                       AGENT RODRIGUEZ
Don't worry Mrs. Reed he is not in
any trouble with the law, we just
need to speak with him, thank you
for your help, good-bye.

Thank you for coming, let me start
Gentlemen, by saying we have a
problem, that problem is G.O.D.S.,
or specifically, John Herzog and
his Daughter Eve.
      (Pause)
They are responsible for producing
one hundred million clones a year
Worldwide, ten million in our
country alone.
      (Pause)
President Rodhan feels if Herzog
can make clones not want to defend
our great nation, then he can just
as easily create them to over
throw the government.
      (Pause)
The targets must be removed
quietly by any means necessary,
and with extreme prejudice. I need
a plan of operation, by the end of
October.

Hi Daddy, come and sit with us.
Have some popcorn and watch
America's Unsolved Murders.

The man had been bludgeoned to
death at his home in Vail
Colorado. Police did a through
investigation but few leads in the
case soon left it cold. After
thirty years the case is being
reviewed for any possible new
information.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I knew him, that's Bob Reynolds,
he and his firm handled my
Grandmother Helga's trust fund,
and from what I was able to gather
he was a good friend of the
family.
      (Pause)
How about that, they never found
his killer. He failed to mention
to me his close ties to our family
and the Snitzer's. That's why I
took my billion dollar trust away
from his firm. I don't feel a bit
sorry for him, and I'm sure he
deserved it.

This is a Mr. Hodges, I need to
speak with the agent in charge of
the Reynold's murder.

want to talk on the phone can you
come to my house to discuss it?
                                                            
                       CHARLIE

OK Mr. Hodges what can you tell
us?
                                                            
                       MR. HODGES
I was about twelve at the time, I
remember the day quite well, you
see, my friends and I played a
game with car license plates.
      (Pause)
We looked at as many plates as we
were able to, on any given day,
and then we reported back with the

                       MR. HODGES (cont'd)
most peculiar one we'd seen.
      (Pause)
On the day of the murder, just
before sunset my mother made me
take our dog Lucky for a walk.
      (Pause)
As I came around the corner of the
house a huge red car went past at
a high rate of speed.
      (Pause)
I glanced at the plate it read,
DNA and the number one. I was so
excited to see such an unusual
plate, that I ran back into the
house, wrote it down, and called
my friends to report what I had
seen.

Charlie, George and Mr. Hodges are standing at the front

add?

No I think that's about it, I hope
it helps you.

I found out something compelling
about you the other day Mr.
Snitzer.
                                                            
                       FRED
You found something interesting
about me?
      (Pause)
Surely you're mistaken? My life is
not interesting.
                                                            
                       CHARLIE
It concerns your past.
      (Pause)
It seems you were a bad boy at one
time.
      (Pause)
I was positive John Herzog was
responsible, but it seems I was
mistaken.

Bob Reynolds, Reynolds, no can't
say I recognize the name.
                                                            
                       CHARLIE
That's odd, I thought for sure you
would remember the name of the man
you murdered.
                                                            
                       FRED
Murdered, what are you talking
about? I never killed anyone.
                                                            
                       CHARLIE
I beg to disagree with you, this
is why.
                                                            
LATER:
                                                            
                       CHARLIE
So, you see Mr. Snitzer, it was
you with the statue in bob's home
office, and with that iron clad
evidence, there's no way you can
escape your fate, which will be
execution.
      (Pause)
I don't want you Fred, your small
potatoes compared to what I and
some powerful people in high
places want.
      (Pause)
Lets just say, if you were to
cooperate with us, this nasty
little charge of murder would
disappear. And I can think of many
other benefits for you as well, if
you agree to help.
                                                            
                       FRED

OK, what do you want me to do?

it?

My God John what did you do? How
could you dishonor my daughter and
your wife Joyce's memory with this
horrible imitation?
                                                            
John grabs Esther to steady her.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Eve get your grandmother a glass
of water.
                                                            
Eve hands Esther a glass of water.
                                                            
                       ESTHER
      (To John)
Get that monster away from me.
                                                            
Esther slaps the glass of water out of Eve's hand.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Fine, if that's the way you want
it, I don't need you, and to me,
you're just an old, bitter woman
I've had the displeasure of
meeting.
                                                            
Eve walks out of the office and slams the door.
                                                            

71.

                       JOHN
I think you better leave Esther.
                                                            
John opens the office door.
                                                            
                       JOHN
And do me a favor don't come back.
      (Pause)
Don't bother calling either, as
far as I'm concerned from now on
you are dead.
                                                            
 
INT. NEAR ELEVATOR DOORS - MORNING
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Lets go up to my fathers office
and say hello, and invite him to
join us in the commissary for a
bite to eat.
                                                            
The elevator doors open, Eve and Reed get in.
                                                            
Eve and Reed embrace and deeply kiss each other.
                                                            
 
INT. JOHN'S OFFICE - MORNING
                                                            
a few moments later Eve and Reed are unaware the elevator
doors have opened.
                                                            
                       JOHN
UM HM!
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Oh hi Daddy.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Don't you hi daddy me young lady.
What is going on?
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Oh Daddy, please don't start that
again.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
I'm sorry Mr. Herzog, I didn't
mean any disrespect to you or Eve,
please forgive me.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Don't worry about it Reed, he
thinks if I fall in love I'll
abandon him, and he will be all

72.

                       ADULT EVE (cont'd)
alone.
      (Pause)
Daddy you should know me better
than that, I would never leave you
alone and miserable.
      (Pause)
I will always be close to you, and
make you miserable.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Very funny Eve, is that why you
came up here, to torment your old
man?
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
I came up to say hello, and ask if
you would like to have lunch with
us?
                                                            
                       JOHN
I would like to, but I have a
great deal of work to finish
before the end of the day.
      (Pause)
Thank you anyway Sweetie, I'll
have Alicia order in, go ahead
without me, and have a good lunch.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
OK Daddy don't work too hard, I
will see you tonight.
                                                            
 
INT. ELEVATOR - MORNING
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
Why do these buttons have a minus
on them Eve?
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
They go down to my fathers special
project.
                                                            
Eve and Reed are silent for a moment.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
Well?
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Well what?
                                                            

73.

                       ADULT REED
Are you going to show me?
      (Pause)
Your not going to keep me in
suspense, are you?
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Oh you want to see the famed
project, do you Mr. Reed?
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
As a matter of fact I do Miss.
Herzog.
                                                            
Eve removes a key from her pocket and inserts it into the
elevator panel, turns it to the right a quarter turn, then
pushes button minus eleven.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Its a long way down, but we will
be there quickly, hold on.
                                                            
 
INT. MINUS FLOOR ELEVEN - MORNING
                                                            
The elevator doors open, Eve and Reed step out. Reed looks
around.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
Where are we?
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
We are in the heart of a gigantic,
underground fallout shelter.
      (Pause)
It is my fathers dream to
accommodate up to twenty thousand
people safely from Nuclear
Radiation, if and when the big one
hits.
      (Pause)
The shelter will keep anyone in it
safe for at least twenty-five
years and probably longer.
      (Pause)
Each of these four tunnels from
where we are standing go North,
South, East and West. They are
fifty feet in diameter and one
mile long.
      (Pause)
The venting and air circulation
system, along with the electric
generators, are state of the art
            (MORE)

74.

                       ADULT EVE (cont'd)
and self-sustaining. The power
comes from Hydrogen, which is
produced in a process that
requires a fraction of power than
it is capable of producing, and
that too maintains itself.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
That's amazing.
                                                            
Eve and Reed step back into the elevator.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
If you think this is something
than wait till you see the upper
tunnels.
                                                            
 
INT. SUMMER TUNNEL - AFTERNOON
                                                            
Eve and Reed walk through sliding glass doors into North
Tunnel. Eve hands Reed a heavy winter coat, scarf and
gloves.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Put these on.
                                                            
Eve and Reed walk through a second set of sliding glass
doors.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
This is the beginning of a small
town with replica Victorian house
facades. The stores are real and
offer coffee, hot chocolate and
pastries.
      (Pause)
Over there is a sandwich shop, and
it makes the best Italian
Pininie's in the World
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
How would you know, it's not even
in operation yet?
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Imagination My Sweet, it opens
your mind to the possibilities.
                                                            

75.

                       ADULT REED
Thanks, but if it's all the same
to you, I'd rather not think about
living here.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
OK have it your way.
      (Pause)
You look cold.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
That's because I am cold, Winter
is not for me. I don't like snow,
or that pork and pork shoulder
meat product either.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
What are you talking about?
      (Pause)
Honestly Reed, sometimes I wonder
about you.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
I was thinking about food, we
haven't had lunch yet, and I'm
hungry.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Follow me, I'll get your mind off
food for a while.
                                                            
Eve and Reed go back through the double sliding glass doors
and leave Winter Tunnel. Eve takes Reed by the hand and
leads him to Summer Tunnel.
                                                            
They make love to each other on the soft velvet grass.
                                                            
 
INT. ELEVATOR - AFTERNOON
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Can you imagine how it will be
when the town is put into
operation.
      (Pause)
What do you think?
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
Your father spent a lot of time
and money to build this place, but
honestly, I hope it never has to
be used.
                                                            

76.

                       ADULT EVE
I know Reed, I hope and pray also.
                                                            
 
EXT. G.O.D.S. FIELD - DAY
                                                            
                       CHARLIE
In the palm of my hand, are
instructions you need to follow.
Don't screw up Fred, there are a
lot of people counting on you.
      (Pause)
After you read, and see what you
must do, and how you must do it,
burn it, so no evidence remains.
                                                            
Charlie shakes Fred's hand and slips him a piece of
Microfilm.
                                                            
                       CHARLIE
Make sure you follow the schedule
exactly as planned.
      (Pause)
Immediately after you complete
your mission tomorrow, G.O.D.S.
will be raided, and shut down
permanently.
      (Pause)
Good-luck and good-bye.
                                                            
 
INT. FRED'S ROOM - DAY
                                                            
In his small, one bedroom dwelling, Fred changes the cameras
watching him to images of an empty apartment, and resets the
other monitors using a jamming device provided by Charlie.
                                                            
Sitting at a desk, he places the Microfilm under a powerful
magnifier and reads the instructions while drawing a diagram
on a small piece of paper.
                                                            
                       FRED
      (Out loud)
This will be the end of the Herzog
Empire.
                                                            
 
INT. G.O.D.S. HALLWAY - MORNING
                                                            
TITLE: 7:15 AM
                                                            

77.

Fred resets all sensors and cameras in the entire complex
with a push of a remote button, and goes to the corporate
building, he does his best not to be seen by anyone.
                                                            
Using a side door to the main lobby, Fred gains access to
John's private elevator and goes down to his house. Fred
opens the door, and once inside heads to the lab.
                                                            
He removes the piece of paper with the instructions from his
pocket and lays it on the floor in front of the irradiator
panel.
                                                            
 
INT. JOHN'S LIVING ROOM - MORNING
                                                            
Fred is a few feet from the front door.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
Who are you?
                                                            
Fred freezes in his tracks.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
Hey you turn around, and don't
move.
                                                            
Fred turns around and puts his hands up.
                                                            
Reed has a fireplace poker in his hand above his head, ready
to strike Fred.
                                                            
                       FRED
Don't hurt me, please!
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
Who are you and what are you doing
in here?
                                                            
                       FRED
I'm just a company gofer. I'm here
to deliver a message to Mr.
Herzog.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
Why are you in here?
                                                            
                       FRED
I rang the bell first.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
Why didn't you give it directly to
him in his office?
                                                            

78.

                       FRED
Bill Franklin told me to bring
some papers to John. He told me
John would be in his lab, and if
he wasn't, I should leave them on
his workbench.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
What's your name?
                                                            
                       FRED
Fred.
                                                            
Reed lowers the poker and extends his hand.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
I'm Reed, nice to meet you.
                                                            
Fred shakes his hand.
                                                            
                       FRED
It's a pleasure to meet you too.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
I was about to have breakfast care
to join me?
                                                            
                       FRED
No thank you, I'm on duty, and I
must go back to work.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
OK, well nice to have met you.
                                                            
                       FRED
Same here, good-bye.
                                                            
 
INT. ELEVATOR - MORNING
                                                            
Fred gets in John's private elevator, he pushes the L
button, the doors close.
                                                            
                       FRED
      (Out loud)
Who the hell was that? No one was
supposed to be there.
      (Pause)
Dam, that was close.
                                                            
 

79.

EXT. HERZOG RESIDENCE - AFTERNOON
                                                            
Fred rings the door bell. Reed answers the door.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
Hello Fred nice to see you again.
                                                            
                       FRED
Hello, is Mr. Herzog in? I have
some manuals and other things for
him.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
Ok, I'll take them.
                                                            
                       FRED
No, I'm sorry I can't let you have
them, I was given specific
instructions by Bill Franklin.
      (Pause)
I must personally deliver them to
Mr. Herzog, and no one else.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
Oh, hush, hush stuff huh.
      (Pause)
Come in, he is down in the lab
with Eve.
                                                            
 
INT. JOHN'S LAB - AFTERNOON
                                                            
                       FRED
Hello John.
                                                            
                       JOHN
What the Hell do you want? I
thought I told you, I never wanted
to see your face near me again.
                                                            
                       FRED
I'm sorry John, I was told to
deliver these in person by Bill
Franklin.
      (Pause)
He told me to tell you the lab is
having problems with irradiation
again.
      (Pause)
He would like you to put these
petri dishes into your irritator,
and inspect them when the machine
opens.
      (Pause)
            (MORE)

80.

                       FRED (cont'd)
I'm supposed to wait for your
answer and then report back to
him.
                                                            
Eve overhears the conversation, and comes over to Fred and
John.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (To Eve)
why would Bill send Fred, when he
could have come in person. Let me
phone Bill and see what's up.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Don't bother Bill Daddy, it will
only take a few minutes.
      (Pause)
Fred set the petri dishes in the
irradiator, and close the door.
                                                            
LATER:
                                                            
John and eve go in to look at the petri dish.
                                                            
Fred pushes the door closed and locks it, he sets the
irritator to maximum and hurries out of the lab.
                                                            
                       FRED
I got you now you Son of a Bitch
and your freak daughter too.
                                                            
 
INT. IRRADIATOR - AFTERNOON
                                                            
                       JOHN
Fred you stupid Bastard, you
locked us in here.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Fred you locked us in, open up.
                                                            
The sound of the pins in the door locking into the frame is
heard. The irradiator turns on and hums for a few seconds.
                                                            
John immediately grabs both sides of his head, and screams
the most horrendous sound a Human Being can create.
                                                            
In that instant, his flesh peels off his face and hands, his
eyes pop, his skull cracks open and oozes his brain. John
collapses to the floor in a pile of melted flesh and bones.
                                                            
Eve blacks out and falls to the floor.
                                                            
 

81.

INT. JOHN'S PRIVATE ELEVATOR - AFTERNOON
                                                            
Fred is singing and dancing.
                                                            
                       FRED
Happy times are here again, a call
I'll make to let them know, all is
well, and seal my fate. I'm on my
way, I'll be the tops, in charge I
am when the elevator stops. Happy
times are here again.
                                                            
 
INT. JOHN'S LAB - AFTERNOON
                                                            
The sound of the pins retracting can be heard. A green light
on the irradiator panel lights up.
                                                            
The door flies open with tremendous force and smashes
against the side breaking off the top hinge.
                                                            
Eve steps out, she is naked, her skin imprinted with her
melted clothes.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
      (Out loud)
I know where are Fred, and I'm
coming for you.
                                                            
 
INT. FIRE STAIRS - AFTERNOON
                                                            
Eve runs up the fire stairs a flight at a time directly from
the lab.
                                                            
 
INT. JOHN'S OFFICE - AFTERNOON
                                                            
Eve enters John's office and pries open the outer elevator
doors.
                                                            
She jumps down the elevator shaft and through the roof of
the elevator.
                                                            
 
INT. JOHN'S PRIVATE ELEVATOR - AFTERNOON
                                                            
Eve crashes through the ceiling of the car carrying Fred.
                                                            
She gently pushes the pause button on the elevator, and the
wounded car shudders to a stop.
                                                            

82.

                       FRED
What the Hell are you doing?
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
You killed my father Fred, and
tried to kill me.
      (Pause)
I must avenge his death, now you
must die.
                                                            
                       FRED
Stay away from me, you monster.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
I'm not a monster Fred, you are.
                                                            
Fred backs into the left corner.
                                                            
Eve springs forward and grabs him by both arms, near the
shoulders, she picks him up six inches off the floor, body
slams him into the wall and lets him go.
                                                            
Fred collapses to the floor unconscious.
                                                            
Eve slaps him across the face in both directions.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Wake up you Son of a Bitch, I want
you to experience all the pain you
put my father through.
                                                            
Fred revives.
                                                            
                       FRED
      (Screaming)
Don't hurt me, don't hurt me,
please!
                                                            
Eve grabs his right foot and leg, and with a sudden twist
breaks his ankle, and then pulls his foot completely off his
leg.
                                                            
Fred screams in agony as his blood begins to flow.
                                                            
Eve grabs his other foot and does the same.
                                                            
Fred flops like a fish on land.
                                                            
Eve takes his thigh in one hand and his leg in the other and
like a crab claw twists and pulls it off at the knee, then
does the same to his other leg. Eve remains silent, as she
rips off Fred's right thigh from his hip joint, then the
left.
                                                            

83.

Fred is pouring blood from both hip cavities, and screaming
his lungs out.
                                                            
Eve twists his left arm off at the torso, and then his
right.
                                                            
Fred barely has a whimper left in him, but he is still
alive.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
That was for trying to kill me.
      (Pause)
This is for my father.
                                                            
Eve grabs Fred's head and twists, it makes a sound like a
tree branch being snapped in two, and then she pulls and
tares his neck off his shoulders.
                                                            
Eve grabs Fred's head by the hair, and stares at it directly
in the eyes.
                                                            
Fred's face has a grimacing look on it, and his mouth is
moving.
                                                            
Eve throws Fred's head against the elevator doors, it makes
a loud thud, and then falls to the floor.
                                                            
Eve pushes resume on the panel, then the ground floor
button.
                                                            
Eve jumps up through the hole in the roof of the elevator,
and climbs up the shaft to her fathers office. She opens the

At approximately four PM,
yesterday a tool designed to
sterilize lab equipment
malfunctioned, both my father and
an assistant lab worker Fred
Snitzer received a lethal dose of
radiation.
      (Pause)
Unfortunately, both succumbed to
the effects a few minutes later
and passed away. The area where
the accident occurred has been
sealed off, and there is no
possibility of radiation leaking.
      (Pause)
However, as a precaution to keep
all my workers safe the facility
will close, and remain so
indefinitely.
      (Pause)
As sole heir, and owner of the
great company G.O.D.S., I intend
to continue the work my father

Snitzer died along with him, but
sometimes there is collateral
damage.
      (Pause)
Unfortunately Eve Herzog is still
alive and we are no closer now
than we were before to collapsing

You want me to come in contact
with a lethal dose of radiation,
because it will make me stronger,
and tap into the power of the
Universe.
      (Pause)
Is that right?
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
That's pretty much it.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
Are you out of your mind?
      (Pause)
The only thing a lethal dose of
radiation will do, is put me six
feet down in my grave.
                                                            
                       ADULT EVE
Reed your wrong, it would be a
lethal dose for a Human Being, but
your so much more than that, you,
me and hundreds of millions of
clones out there are different
from the humans, we carry a
special set of Genes.
      (Pause)
After your dose of radiation, you
will understand, the burden of
Humanity will be lifted from your
shoulders.
                                                            
                       ADULT REED
No way, you're not going to dose
me with radiation.
      (Pause)
