DOCTOR GRANT

To be perfectly candid, Mr. Falk, it was your son who provided that damning information, and only after I assured him it would remain 'privileged.' Were you actually plotting to commit a criminal act, I would be duty-bound to inform the authorities. The fact that you have committed past crimes, if admitted during therapy, cannot be divulged by your psychiatrist.

REMINGTON

What if I maintain that Rockefeller lied?

DOCTOR GRANT

You mean you havenít been conducting experiments using humans as guinea pigs?

STUYVESANT

Of course not.

DOCTOR GRANT

And Rockefellerís motive for stating otherwise?

REMINGTON

Is for me to know...

STUYVESANT

... and for you to find out.

DOCTOR GRANT

Experimenting on humans, in your view then...?

REMINGTON

Is totally unethical.

STUYVESANT

Totally immoral; human beings are sacrosanct.

REMINGTON

Our status conferred by God.

STUYVESANT

Every other organism is ďlesserĒ in the eyes of the Lord Almighty.

REMINGTON

Almighty Aphrodite; donít forget that...

STUYVESANT

... Jesus loves you.

REMINGTON

No, we wouldnít dream of...

STUYVESANT

... toying with Allahís creation.

REMINGTON

Ask the lad for proof, and listen to what he says if you offer...

STUYVESANT

... to drop in...

REMINGTON

... to pay an unofficial visit.

STUYVESANT

Odds are heíll refuse.

REMINGTON

Cleverly; heís no chump.

STUYVESANT

Certainly not; heís nobodyís fool.

REMINGTON

But rest assured youíll never set foot inside that...

STUYVESANT

... felonious...

REMINGTON

... nefarious

STUYVESANT

... laboratory.

Dr. Grant sits back in his ergonomic chair, posture still erect in comparison to his patientís (or patients'), aware he confronts a twosome, though discerning one from the other is a difficult task, assessing mental competence (or lack thereof) a dodgy proposition, the matter of "threat to society" thus far ill-established, the matter of "danger to himself" none too conclusive either. So, whose account should be credited; the fatherís or the sonís?
