- 1. Our pasta this evening is squid ravioli
in a lemongrass broth
- 2. with goat cheese profiteroles,
- 3. and I also have an arugula caesar salad.
- 4. For entrées this evening, I have
swordfish meatloafwith onion marmalade,
- 5. rare-roasted partridge breast
in raspberry coulis
- 6. with a sorrel timbale...
- 7. And grilled free-range rabbit
with herbed French fries.
- 8. Our pasta tonight is a squid
in a lemonrass broth
- 9. and the fish tonight is grilled
- 10. With a double espresso.
- 11. God, I hate this place.
It's a chicks' restaurant.
- 12. Why aren'twe at Dorsia?
- 13. Because Bateman
won't give the maitre d' head.
- 14. Is that Reed Robinson over there?
- 15. Are you freebasing orwhat?
That's not Robinson.
- 16. - Well, who is it, then?
- It's Paul Allen.
- 17. That's not Paul Allen.
Paul Allen's on the other side of the room.
- 18. - Overthere.
- Who's he with?
- 19. Some weasel from Kicker Peabody.
- 20. They don't have
a good bathroom to do coke in.
- 21. Are you sure that's Paul Allen over there?
- 22. Yes, McDufus, I am.
- 23. He's handling the Fisher account.
- 24. Lucky bastard.
- 25. Lucky Jew bastard.
- 26. Jesus, McDermott, what does
that have to do with anything?
- 27. I've seen that bastard sitting in his office,
- 28. talking on the phone to the CEO,
spinning a fucking menorah.
- 29. Not a menorah. You spin a dreidel.
- 30. Oh, my God, Bateman.
- 31. Want me to fry you up some fucking
potato pancakes? Some latkes?
- 32. No, just cool itwith
the anti-Semitic remarks.
- 33. Oh, I'd forgotten.
Bateman's dating someone from the ACLU.
- 34. He's the voice of reason.
The boy next door.
- 35. Speaking of reasonable.
- 36. Only $570.
- 37. Not bad.
- 38. A little something for the purse.
- 39. Give herthe 50.
- 40. Two Stolis on the rocks.
- 41. These aren't good anymore. It's a cash bar.
- 42. That'll be $25.
- 43. You're a fucking ugly bitch.
- 44. I want to stab you to death,
- 45. then play around with your blood.
- 46. What can I get for you two?
- 47. I live in the American Gardens building
- 48. on West 81st Street, on the 11th floor.
- 49. My name is Patrick Bateman.
I'm 27 years old.
- 50. I believe in taking care of myself
- 51. and a balanced diet
- 52. and a rigorous exercise routine.
- 53. In the morning, if my face is a little puffy,
- 54. I'll put on an ice pack while
doing my stomach crunches.
- 55. I can do 1,000 now.
- 56. After I remove the ice pack,
I use a deep-pore cleanser lotion.
- 57. In the shower,
I use a water-activated gel cleanser,
- 58. then a honey-almond body scrub,
- 59. and on the face, an exfoliating gel scrub.
- 60. Then I apply an herb mint facial mask,
- 61. which I leave on for 10 minutes,
- 62. while I prepare the rest of my routine.
- 63. I always use an aftershave lotion
- 64. with little or no alcohol,
- 65. because alcohol dries yourface out
- 66. and makes you look older.
- 67. Then moisturizer,
- 68. then an anti-aging eye balm
- 69. followed by a final
moisturizing protective lotion.
- 70. There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman,
- 71. some kind of abstraction,
- 72. but there is no real me,
- 73. only an entity, something illusory.
- 74. And though I can hide my cold gaze
- 75. and you can shake my hand
and feel flesh gripping yours,
- 76. and maybe you can even sense
- 77. our lifestyles are probably comparable,
- 78. I simply am not there.
- 79. Morning, Hamilton. Nice tan.
- 80. - Late.
- Aerobics class, sorry. Any messages?
- 81. Ricky Harrison has to cancel.
- 82. He didn't saywhat
he was canceling orwhy.
- 83. I occasionally boxwith Ricky
at the Harvard Club. Anyone else?
- 84. Spencerwants to meet for drinks
at Flutie's Pier 17.
- 85. - When?
- After 6.00.
- 86. - Negative. Cancel it.
- And what should I say?
- 87. Just say no.
- 88. Just say no?
- 89. Okay, Jean, I need reservations
forthree at Camols at 12:30,
- 90. and if not there, try Crayons, all right?
- 91. Yes, sir.
- 92. Oh, wait, and I need reservations fortwo
- 93. atArcadia at 8:00 on Thursday.
- 94. Something romantic?
- 95. No.
- 96. Silly.
- 97. Forget it, I'll make them.
- 98. - No, I'll do it.
- No, no.
- 99. Be a doll and just get me
a mineral water, okay?
- 100. You look nice today.
- 101. Don'twearthat outfit again.
- 102. What? I didn't hear you.
- 103. I said, do notwearthat outfit again.
- 104. Wear a dress, a skirt or something.
- 105. You don't like this, I take it?
- 106. Come on, you're prettierthan that.
- 107. Thanks, Patrick.
- 108. I'm not here.
- 109. And high heels. I like high heels.
- 110. "Feathered Friends" for 600.
- 111. During courtship, the male frigate bird
- 112. inflates to enormous size
the red pouch found here.
- 113. Thousands of roses,
- 114. and lots of chocolate truffles, Godiva,
- 115. and oysters on the half shell.
- 116. I'm trying to listen to the
new Robert Palmertape,
- 117. but Evelyn, my supposed fiancée,
- 118. keeps buzzing in my ear.
- 119. Annie Leibovitz. We'll getAnnie Leibovitz.
- 120. And we'll have to get
someone to videotape.
- 121. Patrick, we should do it.
- 122. - Do what?
- Get married. Have a wedding.
- 123. No, I can't take the time offwork.
- 124. Yourfather practically owns the company.
You can do anything you like, silly.
- 125. I don'twant to talk about it.
- 126. You hate that job anyway.
I don't see why you just don't quit.
- 127. Because I want to fit in.
- 128. Williams party.
- 129. I'm on the verge oftears
by the time we arrive at Espace,
- 130. since I'm positive
we won't have a decent table.
- 131. But we do,
- 132. and reliefwashes over me
in an awesome wave.
- 133. Patrick, this is my cousin
Vanden and her boyfriend Stash.
- 134. They're both artists.
- 135. - The menu's in Braille.
- I see you've met everyone.
- 136. You look awesome.
- 137. Okay, okay, all right.
- 138. I'm fairly certain that Timothy Bryce
and Evelyn are having an affair.
- 139. Timothy is the only
interesting person I know.
- 140. I'm almost completely indifferent
- 141. as to whether Evelyn knows
I'm having an affair
- 142. with Courtney Rawlinson,
her closest friend.
- 143. Courtney is almost perfect-looking.
- 144. She's usually operating on
one or more psychiatric drugs.
- 145. Tonight, I believe it's Xanax.
- 146. More disturbing than her drug use, though,
- 147. is the fact that she's engaged
- 148. to Luis Carruthers,
the biggest dufus in the business.
- 149. Tell me, Stash,
- 150. do you think SoHo
is becoming too commercial?
- 151. Yes, I read that.
- 152. Oh, who gives a rat's ass?
- 153. Hey, that affects us.
- 154. What about the massacres
in Sri Lanka, honey?
- 155. Doesn't that affect us, too?
Do you know anything about Sri Lanka?
- 156. How, like, the Sikhs are, like,
killing tons of Israelis over there?
- 157. Come on, Bryce.
- 158. There are a lot more important
problems than Sri Lanka
- 159. to worry about.
- 160. Like what?
- 161. Well, we have to end apartheid, for one,
- 162. and slow down the nuclear arms race,
- 163. stop terrorism, and world hunger.
- 164. We have to provide food and shelter
for the homeless
- 165. and oppose racial discrimination
and promote civil rights
- 166. while also promoting
equal rights forwomen.
- 167. We have to encourage a return
- 168. to traditional moral values.
- 169. Most importantly,
- 170. we have to promote general social concern
- 171. and less materialism in young people.
- 172. Patrick,
- 173. how thought-provoking.
- 174. Hello.
- 175. "Bleach-ee"?
Are you trying to say "bleach-ee"?
- 176. Oh, my God. Two things.
- 177. One, you can't bleach a Cerruti.
Out of the question.
- 178. Two, I can only get
these sheets in Santa Fe.
- 179. These are very expensive sheets
and I really need them clean.
- 180. If you don't shutyourfucking mouth,
- 181. I will kill you.
- 182. I have a lunch meeting at Hubert's
in 20 minutes with Ronald Harrison
- 183. and I need those sheets
cleaned by this afternoon.
- 184. I cannot understand you!
This is crazy. You're a fool.
- 185. I can't cope with this. Stupid "bitch-ee"!
- 186. Understand? Christ.
- 187. Patrick?
- 188. Hi, Patrick. I thought thatwas you.
- 189. Hello...
- 190. Isn't it ridiculous coming
all the way up here?
- 191. But they really are the best.
- 192. Then why can't they get these stains out?
- 193. Can you talk to these people or something?
I'm not getting anywhere.
- 194. Oh, what are those?
- 195. Oh, well, it's cranberry juice. Cran-apple.
- 196. Really?
- 197. Listen, if you could talk to them,
I would really appreciate it.
- 198. I'm really late. I have a lunch appointment
at Hubert's in 15 minutes.
- 199. Hubert's? That moved uptown, right?
- 200. Well, boy, listen, I've gotta go.
Thank you, Victoria.
- 201. Maybe we could do lunch
one day nextweek.
- 202. You know, I'm downtown...
- 203. - I don't know. I'm atwork all the time.
- What about a Saturday?
- 204. - Next Saturday?
- 205. Can't, I'm afraid.
I have a matinée of Les Mis.
- 206. I've really got to go. Christ. I'll call you.
- 207. Okay. Do.
- 208. Listen, you're dating Luis. He's in Arizona.
- 209. You're fucking me,
and we haven't made plans.
- 210. What could you possibly be up to tonight?
- 211. Stop it. I'm...
- 212. On a lot of lithium?
- 213. Waiting for Luis to call me.
- 214. He said he'd call tonight.
- 215. Pumpkin.
- 216. Pumpkin, you're dating an asshole.
- 217. Pumpkin, you're dating
the biggest dickweed in New York.
- 218. Pumpkin, you're dating
a tumbling, tumbling dickweed.
- 219. Patrick, stop calling me pumpkin, okay?
- 220. I have to go.
- 221. Courtney!
- 222. - Dinner.
- I can't!
- 223. I'm thinking Dorsia.
- 224. Dorsia's nice.
- 225. Wear something fabulous.
- 226. Dorsia.
- 227. Yes, I know it's a little late,
- 228. but is it possible to reserve a table fortwo
- 229. at 8:00 or 8:30, perhaps?
- 230. A facial at Elizabeth Arden,
which was really relaxing,
- 231. and then to the Pottery Barn
- 232. where I got this little silver muffin dish.
- 233. Is that Donald Trump's car?
- 234. God, Patrick, shut up.
- 235. Courtney, you should take
some more lithium or have a Diet Coke.
- 236. Some caffeine
might getyou out of this slump.
- 237. I just want a child.
- 238. Just two
- 239. perfect
- 240. children.
- 241. Are we here?
- 242. Yeah.
- 243. This is Dorsia?
- 244. - Good evening.
- Yes, dear.
- 245. Courtney, you're gonna have
the peanut butter soup
- 246. with smoked duck and mashed squash.
- 247. New York Matinee called it
- 248. "a playful, but mysterious little dish."
- 249. You'll love it.
- 250. And then the red snapper
with violets and pine nuts.
- 251. I think thatwill follow nicely.
- 252. Thanks, Patrick.
- 253. Patrick, thanks so much
for looking after Courtney.
- 254. Dorsia, how impressive.
- 255. How on earth did you
get a reservation there?
- 256. Lucky, I guess.
- 257. That's a wonderful suit.
- 258. Don't tell me, don't tell me, let me guess.
- 259. Valentino Couture.
- 260. Uh-huh.
- 261. It looks so soft.
- 262. Your complimentwas sufficient, Luis.
- 263. Hello, Halberstram. Nice tie.
- 264. How the hell are you?
- 265. Allen has mistaken me forthis dickhead,
- 266. It seems logical, because
Marcus also works at P&P
- 267. and, in fact, does the same exact thing I do.
- 268. He also has a penchant for Valentino suits
and Oliver Peoples glasses.
- 269. Marcus and I even go to the same barber,
- 270. although I have a slightly better haircut.
- 271. So how's the Ransom account
- 272. - It's all right.
- 273. That's interesting. It's not... It's not great.
- 274. Oh, well, you know.
- 275. So how's Cecilia? She's a great girl.
- 276. Oh, yeah, I'm very lucky.
- 277. Congratulations on the Fisher account.
- 278. Thank you, Baxter.
- 279. Listen, Paul. Squash?
- 280. Call me.
- 281. - How about Friday?
- No can do.
- 282. I got an 8:30 res at Dorsia.
- 283. Great sea urchin ceviche.
- 284. Dorsia on a Friday night?
How'd he swing that?
- 285. I think he's lying.
- 286. Is that a gram?
- 287. New card.
- 288. What do you think?
- 289. Whoa. Very nice.
- 290. Look at that.
- 291. Picked them up from
the printer's yesterday.
- 292. - Good coloring.
- That's bone.
- 293. And the lettering is
something called Silian Rail.
- 294. It's very cool, Bateman.
- 295. But that's nothing. Look at this.
- 296. That is really nice.
- 297. Eggshell with Romalian type.
- 298. What do you think?
- 299. Nice.
- 300. Jesus. That is really super.
- 301. How did a nitwit like you get so tasteful?
- 302. I can't believe
- 303. that Bryce prefers Van Patten's card
- 304. Butwait. You ain't seen nothin' yet.
- 305. Raised lettering. Pale Nimbus White.
- 306. Impressive. Very nice.
- 307. Let's see Paul Allen's card.
- 308. Look at that subtle off-white coloring,
- 309. the tasteful thickness of it.
- 310. Oh, my God.
- 311. It even has a watermark.
- 312. Is something wrong, Patrick?
- 313. You're sweating.
- 314. Hello.
- 315. Pat Bateman. You want some money?
- 316. Some food?
- 317. - This what you need?
- I'm hungry.
- 318. Yeah. Cold out, too, isn't it?
- 319. Why don't you get a job?
- 320. Ifyou're so hungry,
why don't you get a job?
- 321. I lost my job.
- 322. Why? You drinking?
- 323. Is thatwhy you lost it?
- 324. Insidertrading? Justjoking.
- 325. Listen, what's your name?
- 326. Al.
- 327. Speak up. Come on.
- 328. - Al.
- Get a goddamn job, Al.
- 329. You got a negative attitude.
That's what's stopping you.
- 330. You gotta get your act together.
- 331. I'll help you.
- 332. You are so kind, mister.
- 333. You're kind. You're a kind man.
- 334. - It's okay.
- I can tell.
- 335. Please, you gotta tell me what to do.
- 336. You gotta help me. I'm so cold.
- 337. I'm hungry.
- 338. You know how bad you smell?
- 339. You reek of shit. Do you know that?
- 340. Al.
- 341. I'm sorry.
- 342. It's just that... I don't know.
- 343. I don't have anything in common with you.
- 344. Oh, thank you, mister. Thank you.
- 345. I'm cold out here.
- 346. - You know what a fucking loseryou are?
- 347. What beautiful skin you have, Mr. Bateman.
- 348. So fine, so smooth.
- 349. I have all the characteristics
of a human being,
- 350. flesh, blood, skin, hair,
- 351. but not a single clear identifiable emotion,
- 352. except for greed and disgust.
- 353. Something horrible
is happening inside of me,
- 354. and I don't know why.
- 355. My nightly blood lust
has overflowed into my days.
- 356. I feel lethal, on the verge offrenzy.
- 357. I think my mask of sanity is about to slip.
- 358. Hey, MacLoy, what do you say?
- 359. Hey, Hamilton,
have a holly, jolly Christmas.
- 360. Is Allen still handling the Fisher account?
- 361. Of course. Who else?
- 362. Mistletoe alert. Merry Xmas, Patrick.
- 363. - Merry Xmas, Harry.
- Merry Christmas.
- 364. - You're late, honey.
- I'm not late.
- 365. - Oh, yes, you are.
- I've been here the entire time.
- 366. You just didn't see me.
- 367. Say hello to Snowball.
- 368. Snowball says "Merry Christmas, Patrick."
- 369. What is it?
- 370. It's a little baby piggy-wiggy, isn't it?
- 371. It's a Vietnamese potbellied pig.
- 372. They make darling pets. Don't you?
- 373. Don't you?
- 374. Stop scowling, Patrick.
You're such a Grinch.
- 375. What does Mr. Grinch want for Christmas?
- 376. And don't say "breast implants" again.
- 377. Alan.
- 378. Marcus! Merry Christmas.
- 379. How you been? Workaholic, I suppose?
- 380. I haven't seen you in a while.
- 381. Hey, Hamilton! We're going to Nell's.
Limo's out front.
- 382. We should have dinner.
- 383. Maybe you could bring...
- 384. - Cecilia?
- Yes, Cecilia!
- 385. Oh, Cecilia would adore it.
- 386. Well, then let's do it, Marcus.
- 387. - Great party.
- 388. Patrick, why is he calling you Marcus?
- 389. Mistletoe alert.
- 390. Marcus Halberstram fortwo at 7.00.
- 391. No, I want to know.
- 392. I came here for
the cilantro crawfish gumbo. All right?
- 393. Which is, after all, the only excuse
one could have for being in this restaurant,
- 394. which is, by the way,
almost completely empty.
- 395. - I'm very sorry, sir.
- J&B straight and a Corona.
- 396. - Would you like to hear...
- Double Absolut martini.
- 397. Yes, sir.
Would you like to hearthe specials?
- 398. Not if you want to keep your spleen.
- 399. This is a real beehive
of activity, Halberstram.
- 400. This place is hot. Very hot.
- 401. Listen, the mud soup and charcoal arugula
are outrageous here.
- 402. Yeah, well, you're late.
- 403. Hey, I'm a child of divorce. Give me a break.
- 404. I see they've omitted
the pork loin with lime Jell-o.
- 405. We should've gone to Dorsia.
- 406. I could have gotten us a table.
- 407. Nobody goes there anymore.
- 408. Is that Ivana Trump?
- 409. Oh, jeez, Patrick... I mean, Marcus,
- 410. what are you thinking?
- 411. Whywould Ivana be at Texarkana?
- 412. So, wasn't Rothschild
originally handling the Fisher account?
- 413. How'd you get it?
- 414. Well, I could tell you that, Halberstram,
- 415. but then I'd have to kill you.
- 416. I like to dissect girls.
- 417. Did you know I'm utterly insane?
- 418. Great tan, Marcus. Really impressive.
- 419. - Where do you tan?
- 420. I've got a tanning bed at home.
You should look into it.
- 421. And Cecilia... How is she?
- 422. Where is she tonight?
- 423. Cecilia is... Well, you know Cecilia.
- 424. I think she's having dinner
with Evelyn Williams.
- 425. Evelyn! Great ass.
- 426. Goes outwith that loser Patrick Bateman.
- 427. What a dork.
- 428. Another martini, Paul?
- 429. You like Huey Lewis and the News?
- 430. They're okay.
- 431. Their earlywork was
a little too newwave for my taste.
- 432. Butwhen Sports came out in '83,
- 433. I think they really came into their own,
commercially and artistically.
- 434. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound
- 435. and a new sheen of
- 436. that really gives the songs a big boost.
- 437. He's been compared to Elvis Costello,
- 438. but I think Huey has a far more bitter,
- 439. cynical sense of humor.
- 440. - Hey, Halberstram.
- Yes, Allen?
- 441. Why are there copies of the Style section
all over the place?
- 442. Do you have a dog?
- 443. A little chow or something?
- 444. No, Allen.
- 445. Is that a raincoat?
- 446. Yes, it is!
- 447. In '87, Huey released this,
- 448. Fore!, their most accomplished album.
- 449. I think their undisputed masterpiece
is Hip to be Square.
- 450. The song's so catchy. Most people
probably don't listen to the lyrics.
- 451. But they should because it's not just about
- 452. the pleasures of conformity
and the importance oftrends,
- 453. it's also a personal statement
about the band itself.
- 454. Hey, Paul?
- 455. Try getting a reservation at Dorsia now,
- 456. you fucking stupid bastard!
- 457. You fucking bastard!
- 458. 'Cause I can tell
what's going on
- 459. It's hip to be square
- 460. I like my bands in business suits
- 461. I watch them on TV
- 462. I'm working out 'most every day
- 463. And watching what I eat
- 464. They tell me that it's good for me
- 465. But I don't even care
- 466. I know that it's crazy
- 467. I know that it's nowhere
- 468. There is no denying that
- 469. It's hip to be square
- 470. He was completely naked
and he was standing
- 471. on one of the tables
with everyone watching...
- 472. Patrick? Patrick!
- 473. Is thatyou?
- 474. No, Luis, it's not me. You're mistaken.
- 475. This is my very good friend,
- 476. Where are you going?
We're going to Nell's.
- 477. Gwendolyn's father is buying it.
- 478. Where did you get that overnight bag?
- 479. Jean Paul Gaultier.
- 480. When I get to Paul Allen's place,
- 481. I use the keys I took from his pocket
before disposing of the body.
- 482. There is a moment of sheer panic
- 483. when I realize that Paul's apartment
overlooks the park
- 484. and it's obviously
more expensive than mine.
- 485. I calm myself and move into the bedroom,
- 486. where I find his suitcase and start to pack.
- 487. It's time for Paul to take a little trip.
- 488. Where to send the bastard?
- 489. Dallas?
- 490. Paris? Singapore?
- 491. London. I'll send the ass to London.
- 492. Hi, this is Paul.
- 493. I've been called away
to London for a few days.
- 494. Meredith, I'll call you when I get back.
- 495. Hasta la vista, baby.
- 496. What is it?
- 497. Patrick.
- 498. Yes, Jean?
- 499. There's a Mr. Donald Kimball
here to see you.
- 500. Who?
- 501. Detective Donald Kimball.
- 502. Tell him I'm at lunch.
- 503. Patrick, it's only 10:30.
I think he knows you're here.
- 504. Send him in, I guess.
- 505. Now, John, you've gotta wear clothes
in proportion to your physique.
- 506. There are definite dos and don'ts, good
buddy, ofwearing a bold-striped shirt.
- 507. A bold-striped shirt calls for solid-colored
- 508. or discretely patterned suits and ties.
- 509. Yes, always tip the stylist 15%.
- 510. Listen, John, I've got to go.
T. Boone Pickensjustwalked in.
- 511. Justjoking.
- 512. No, don't tip the owner of the salon.
- 513. Okay, John. Right. Got it.
- 514. Sorry about that.
- 515. No, I'm sorry.
I should've made an appointment.
- 516. Was that anything important?
- 517. Oh, that?
Just mulling over business problems,
- 518. examining opportunities,
- 519. spreading gossip.
- 520. Hi. I'm Donald Kimball.
- 521. Hi, Pat Bateman. Nice to meetyou.
- 522. Sorry to barge in on you like this.
- 523. I know how busy you guys can get.
- 524. So, what's the topic of discussion?
- 525. I've been hired by Meredith Powell
- 526. to investigate the disappearance
of Paul Allen.
- 527. I see, yeah. Paul's disappearance, yeah.
- 528. So it's nothing that official. I just have
some basic questions about Paul Allen.
- 529. - Aboutyourself...
- 530. No, I'm okay.
- 531. - Apollinaris?
- No, I'm okay.
- 532. - Can you bring Mister...
- 533. Mr. Kimball a bottle...
- 534. - No, really, I'm okay.
- It's no problem.
- 535. So, what's the topic of discussion?
- 536. The disappearance of Paul Allen.
- 537. Right.
- 538. Well, I haven't...
- 539. I haven't heard anything about
the disappearance or anything,
- 540. not on Page Six at least.
- 541. - I think his familywants this kept quiet.
- Understandable. Lime?
- 542. - No, really, I'm okay.
- You sure? I can always getyou a lime.
- 543. Just some preliminary questions that I need
for my own files, okay?
- 544. Shoot.
- 545. - How old are you?
- 546. - Where did you go to school?
- 547. - Then Harvard Business School.
- Your address?
- 548. The American Gardens building,
West 81st Street.
- 549. Nice. Very nice.
- 550. Thanks.
- 551. - What can you tell me about Paul Allen?
- I'm at a loss.
- 552. He was part ofthatwhole Yale thing.
- 553. - "Yale thing"?
- Yeah, Yale thing.
- 554. What do you mean, "Yale thing"?
- 555. Well, I think for one that he was
probably a closet homosexual
- 556. who did a lot of cocaine.
- 557. That Yale thing.
- 558. What kind of man was he?
- 559. Besides the information
you'vejust given me.
- 560. I hope I'm not being cross-examined here.
- 561. - Do you feel like that?
- No, not really.
- 562. - Where did Paul hang out?
- Hang out?
- 563. Yeah, you know, hang out.
- 564. Let me think. The Newport.
- 565. Harry's. Flutie's.
- 566. Indochine. Nell's. The Cornell Club.
- 567. - The New York Yacht Club.
- He had a yacht?
- 568. No, hejust hung out there.
- 569. And where did he go to school?
- 570. - Don't you know this?
- I just wanted to know if you know.
- 571. Before Yale, if I remember correctly,
- 572. Listen, I just... I just want to help.
- 573. I understand.
- 574. Do you have anywitnesses orfingerprints?
- 575. Well, there's a message
on his answering machine
- 576. that says he went to London.
- 577. - Maybe he did, huh?
- His girlfriend doesn't think so.
- 578. - But has anyone seen him in London?
- Actually, yes.
- 579. But I've had a hard time
getting actual verification.
- 580. A Stephen Hughes said he saw him
at a restaurant there.
- 581. But I checked it out, and what happened is
- 582. he mistook a HerbertAinsworth
for Paul, so...
- 583. Had his apartment been burglarized?
- 584. No, actually it hadn't.
- 585. Toiletries were missing, a suitwas gone,
so was some luggage, that's it.
- 586. I mean, no one's dealing with
the homicide squad yet, or anything, right?
- 587. No, notyet. As I said, we're not sure.
- 588. Basically, no one's seen or heard anything.
- 589. - So typical, isn't it?
- It's just strange.
- 590. One day someone's walking around,
- 591. going to work, alive, and then...
- 592. Nothing.
- 593. Peoplejust disappear.
- 594. The earth just opens up
and swallows them.
- 595. Eerie. Really eerie.
- 596. Listen, you'll have to excuse me.
- 597. I have a lunch meeting with Cliff Huxtable
- 598. at the Four Seasons in 20 minutes.
- 599. The Four Seasons?
Isn't that a little far uptown?
- 600. I mean, aren't you gonna be late?
- 601. No, there's one down here.
- 602. - Oh, really? I didn't know that.
- It's very good.
- 603. Listen, if anything else occurs to you,
- 604. Absolutely. I'm 100% with you.
- 605. Great, and thanks foryourtime,
- 606. - Bye-bye.
- 607. I haven't seen you around here.
- 608. You just haven't been looking.
- 609. Would you like to see my apartment?
- 610. I'm not supposed to.
- 611. Do you want to come
to my apartment or not?
- 612. I'm not supposed to,
- 613. but I can make an exception.
- 614. Would you take a credit card?
- 615. I'm joking.
- 616. Come on, get in.
- 617. I'd like a girl, early twenties, blonde,
- 618. who does couples. Couples.
- 619. And I really can't stress
"blonde" enough. Blonde.
- 620. I'm Paul. My name's Paul Allen.
- 621. You got that?
- 622. You're Christie.
You're to respond only to Christie.
- 623. Is that clear?
- 624. That's a very fine chardonnay
- 625. I want you to clean your vagina.
- 626. No. From behind. Get on your knees.
- 627. You have a very nice body.
- 628. Thank you. Send her up.
- 629. Christie, get out and dry off,
- 630. choose a robe,
- 631. not the Bijan,
- 632. and come and meet me and our guest
- 633. in the living room for drinks.
- 634. You've arrived! How lovely.
- 635. Let me take your coat.
- 636. I'm Paul. How good of you to come.
- 637. Not quite blonde, are you?
- 638. More dirty blonde.
- 639. I'm gonna call you Sabrina.
- 640. I'm Paul Allen.
- 641. So,
- 642. don't you want to know what I do?
- 643. No.
- 644. No, not really.
- 645. Well, I work on Wall Street
- 646. at Pierce & Pierce.
- 647. Have you heard of it?
- 648. You have a really nice place here, Paul.
- 649. How much did you pay for it?
- 650. Well, actually,
- 651. that's none of your business, Christie.
- 652. But I can assure you,
it certainlywasn't cheap. No.
- 653. No smoking. Not in here.
- 654. Varda truffle?
- 655. I don'twantyou to get drunk, but
- 656. that's a very fine chardonnay
you're not drinking.
- 657. Do you like Phil Collins?
- 658. I've been a big Genesis fan
- 659. ever since the release
of their 1980 album, Duke.
- 660. Before that,
- 661. I really didn't understand any oftheirwork.
- 662. Itwas too artsy. Too intellectual.
- 663. Itwas on Dukewhere
- 664. Phil Collins' presence
became more apparent.
- 665. I think Invisible Touch
- 666. is the group's undisputed masterpiece.
- 667. It's an epic meditation on intangibility.
- 668. At the same time, it deepens and enriches
- 669. the meaning of the preceding three albums.
- 670. Christie, take off the robe.
- 671. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing
- 672. of Banks, Collins, and Rutherford.
- 673. You can practically hear every nuance
of every instrument.
- 674. Sabrina, remove your dress.
- 675. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship
and sheer songwriting,
- 676. this album hits a new peak
- 677. Sabrina, why don't you dance a little?
- 678. Take the lyrics to "Land of Confusion."
- 679. In this song, Phil Collins
addresses the problems
- 680. of abusive political authority.
- 681. In Too Deep is the most moving
pop song of the 1980s,
- 682. about monogamy and commitment.
- 683. The song is extremely uplifting.
- 684. Their lyrics are as positive
- 685. and affirmative
- 686. as anything I've heard in rock.
- 687. Christie, get down on your knees
- 688. so Sabrina can see your asshole.
- 689. Phil Collins' solo career
- 690. seems to be more commercial,
- 691. and therefore more satisfying
in a narrowerway.
- 692. Especially songs like In The Air Tonight
- 693. and Against All Odds.
- 694. Sabrina, don't just stare at it. Eat it.
- 695. But I also think Phil Collins works best
- 696. within the confines of the group
than as a solo artist.
- 697. And I stress the word "artist."
- 698. This is Sussudio. A great, great song.
- 699. A personal favorite.
- 700. Look at the camera.
- 701. Christie, look at the camera.
- 702. Don't touch the watch.
- 703. Can we go now?
- 704. We're not through yet.
- 705. If they have a good personality and they're
not great-looking, then who fucking cares?
- 706. Just say, hypothetically, okay,
what ifthey have a good personality?
- 707. I know, I know.
- 708. There are no girls with good personalities.
- 709. A good personality consists of a chick
- 710. with a little hard body
who'll satisfy all sexual demands
- 711. without being too slutty about things
- 712. and who will essentially keep
her dumb fucking mouth shut.
- 713. The only girls with good personalities
who are smart,
- 714. or maybe funny or halfway intelligent
- 715. though God knows what the fuck
that means, are ugly chicks.
- 716. Absolutely.
- 717. And this is because they have to make up
for how fucking unattractive they are.
- 718. You know what Ed Gein said
- 719. Ed Gein? Maitre d' at Canal Bar?
- 720. No. Serial killer. Wisconsin, in the '50s.
- 721. What did Ed say?
- 722. "When I see a pretty girl
walking down the street,
- 723. "I think two things. One part of me wants
to take her out and talk to her,
- 724. "be real nice and sweet and treat her right."
- 725. And what did the other part of him think?
- 726. What her head would look like on a stick.
- 727. Hi, guys.
I want to get your opinion on something.
- 728. It's my business card.
- 729. I decided to get a new one, too.
- 730. Oh, that's...
- 731. Very nice, Luis.
- 732. Thank you.
- 733. Listen, what about dinner?
- 734. Is that all you ever have to contribute?
"What about fucking dinner?"
- 735. Cheer up there, Bateman. What's the matter,
no shiatsu this morning?
- 736. Keep touching me like that,
and you'll draw back a stump.
- 737. - Hold on there, little buddy.
- Excuse me.
- 738. God. Patrick. Why here?
- 739. I've seen you looking at me.
- 740. I've noticed
- 741. your hot body.
- 742. Don't be shy.
- 743. You can't imagine
how long I've wanted this,
- 744. ever since that Christmas party
- 745. You were wearing
that red-striped paisley Armani tie.
- 746. I want you.
- 747. I want you, too.
- 748. - Patrick.
- What is it?
- 749. Where are you going?
- 750. I've gotta return some videotapes.
- 751. Okay, Monday? The 20th.
- 752. Monday? That's...
- 753. - Any Paul Allen?
- Reservation, no. No reservation, but...
- 754. Kimball. I've been wanting to talk with you.
- 755. Come into my office.
Jean, greatjacket. Matsuda?
- 756. Do you rememberwhere you were
the night of Paul's disappearance,
- 757. which was on the 20th of December?
- 758. God.
- 759. I guess I was probably
- 760. I had a date with a girl named Veronica.
- 761. - That's notwhat I've got.
- 762. That's not the information I've received.
- 763. Well, wait.
What information have you received?
- 764. Let me see.
- 765. - You were with...
- Well, I could be wrong.
- 766. When was the last time
you were with Paul Allen?
- 767. We'd gone to a new musical called...
- 768. O Africa, Brave Africa.
- 769. Itwas a laugh riot. Thatwas about it.
- 770. I think we had dinner at Orso's.
- 771. No, Petal... No, Orso's.
- 772. I hope I've been informative.
Long day. Bit scattered.
- 773. I'm a little spent now, too.
- 774. But how about lunch in a week or so,
- 775. when I've sorted out all this information?
- 776. Great. Yes, I'd like that.
- 777. And if you could try and pin down
where you were
- 778. the night of Paul Allen's disappearance,
- 779. itwould make my job a lot easier.
- 780. Absolutely. I'm with you on that one.
- 781. Huey Lewis and the News.
- 782. Great stuff. I just bought it on myway here.
You heard it?
- 783. Never.
- 784. I mean, I don't really like singers.
- 785. - Not a big music fan, huh?
- No, I like music.
- 786. Just they're...
Huey's too black-sounding for me.
- 787. To each his own.
- 788. So, lunch nextweek?
- 789. I'll be there.
- 790. Will you call me before Easter?
- 791. Maybe.
- 792. What are you doing tonight?
- 793. Dinner at River Café.
Au Bar afterwards, maybe.
- 794. That's nice.
- 795. I never knew you smoked.
- 796. You never noticed.
- 797. Listen, Patrick,
- 798. can we talk?
- 799. You look
- 800. marvelous.
- 801. There's nothing to say.
You're gonna marry Luis.
- 802. Isn't that special?
- 803. Patrick?
- 804. Yes, Courtney?
- 805. If I don't see you before Easter,
- 806. have a nice one, okay?
- 807. You, too.
- 808. Patrick?
- 809. Yeah?
- 810. Nothing.
- 811. There's this theory now that
if you can catch the AIDS virus
- 812. through having sexwith someone,
then you can catch anything.
- 813. Alzheimer's, muscular dystrophy,
- 814. diabetes, dyslexia.
- 815. I'm not sure,
but I don't think dyslexia's a virus.
- 816. Who knows? They don't know that.
- 817. Prove it.
- 818. - Oh, God!
- 819. It's a fucking milligram of sweetener.
- 820. I wanna get high off this,
- 821. not sprinkle it on my fucking oatmeal.
- 822. It's definitelyweak, but I have a feeling
if we do enough of it, we'll be okay.
- 823. Can you keep it down?
I'm trying to do drugs!
- 824. - Fuck you!
- Calm down. Do it anyway.
- 825. That's right. That is, if the faggot
in the next stall thinks it's okay!
- 826. - Fuck you!
- Hey, fuck you!
- 827. Sorry, dude. The steroids.
- 828. Okay, let's do it.
- 829. Where did Craig go?
- 830. Well, Gorbachev is downstairs.
- 831. McDermottwent to sign a peace treaty
between the United States and Russia.
- 832. He's the one behind Glasnost.
- 833. He said he was in mergers
- 834. You're not confused, are you?
- 835. No, not really.
- 836. Gorbachev is not downstairs.
- 837. Caron's right. Gorbachev's not downstairs.
He's at Tunnel.
- 838. Ask me a question.
- 839. So, what do you do?
- 840. I'm into
- 841. murders and executions, mostly.
- 842. - Do you like it?
- Well, it depends. Why?
- 843. Well, most guys I know
- 844. who work in mergers and acquisitions
really don't like it.
- 845. So, where do you work out?
- 846. - You think I'm dumb, don't you?
- 847. You think I'm dumb.
You think all models are dumb.
- 848. No. I really don't.
- 849. That's okay. I don't mind.
- 850. There's something sweet about you.
- 851. Doing the crossword?
- 852. You need any help?
- 853. Jean?
- 854. Yes, Patrick?
- 855. Would you like to
accompany me to dinner?
- 856. That is, ifyou're not doing anything.
- 857. No. No, I don't have any plans.
- 858. Well.
- 859. Isn't this a coincidence?
- 860. - Listen, where should we go?
- Anywhere you want.
- 861. Let's not think aboutwhat I want.
How about anywhere you want?
- 862. I don't know, Patrick.
I can't make this decision.
- 863. Come on.
- 864. Where do you want to go?
Anywhere you want.
- 865. Just say it. I can get us in anywhere.
- 866. What about
- 867. Dorsia?
- 868. So,
- 869. Dorsia is where Jean wants to go.
- 870. I don't know.
No, we'll go whereveryou want to go.
- 871. Dorsia is fine.
- 872. Dorsia. Yes?
- 873. Yeah, can you take two tonight
at, well, let's say 9:00?
- 874. - We're totally booked.
- Really? That's great.
- 875. - No, I said we are totally booked.
- Two at 9:00? Perfect.
- 876. See you then.
- 877. Yeah.
- 878. You're
- 879. dressed okay.
- 880. You didn't give a name.
- 881. They know me.
- 882. Why don't you meet me at my place at 7:00,
- 883. for drinks.
- 884. And, Jean?
- 885. You'll want to change before we go out.
- 886. Patrick, it's so elegant.
- 887. What a wonderful view.
- 888. Jean?
- 889. Sorbet?
- 890. Thanks, Patrick. I'd love some.
- 891. Do you want a bite?
- 892. I'm on a diet. But thank you.
- 893. You don't need to lose anyweight.
You're kidding, right?
- 894. You look great. Very fit.
- 895. You can always be thinner, look better.
- 896. Well, maybe we shouldn't go out to dinner.
- 897. I don'twant to ruin yourwillpower.
- 898. No, it's all right.
- 899. I'm not very good at controlling it anyway.
- 900. So, listen,
- 901. what do you reallywant
to do with your life?
- 902. Just briefly. Summarize.
- 903. And don't tell me you enjoy
working with children, okay?
- 904. Well, I'd like to travel
- 905. and maybe go back to school,
but I don't really know.
- 906. I'm at a point in my life where there
seems to be so many possibilities.
- 907. But I don't know. I'm just so unsure.
- 908. Do you have a boyfriend?
- 909. No, not really.
- 910. Interesting.
- 911. Are you seeing anyone? I mean, seriously?
- 912. Maybe.
- 913. I don't know.
- 914. Not really.
- 915. Jean,
- 916. do you feel fulfilled?
- 917. I mean, in your life?
- 918. I guess I do. For a long time,
I was too focused on mywork.
- 919. But now I've really begun to think
about changing myself.
- 920. You know, developing and growing.
- 921. Growing.
- 922. I'm glad you said that.
- 923. Did you know that Ted Bundy's
first dog, a collie,
- 924. was named Lassie?
- 925. - Had you heard this?
- Who's Ted Bundy?
- 926. Forget it.
- 927. What's that?
- 928. Duct tape. I need it for
- 929. taping something.
- 930. Patrick?
- 931. Have you everwanted to
make someone happy?
- 932. What? No! Put it in the carton!
- 933. Sorry.
- 934. Jean?
- 935. What?
- 936. Make someone happy.
- 937. Have you everwanted to?
- 938. I'm looking for...
- 939. I guess you could say I just want
to have a meaningful relationship
- 940. with someone special.
- 941. Patrick. Patrick. I know you're there.
- 942. Pick up the phone, you bad boy.
- 943. What are you up to tonight?
It's me. Don't try to hide.
- 944. I hope you're not out
with some little numberyou picked up,
- 945. because you're mine, Mr. Bateman.
- 946. My boy next door.
- 947. Anyway, you never called me,
and you said you would.
- 948. And I'll leave a message
for Jean about this, too, to remind you,
- 949. but we're having dinner
with Melania and Taylor.
- 950. You know Melania.
She went to Sweet Briar.
- 951. And we're meeting at the Cornell Club,
- 952. so I'll call you tomorrow morning, honey.
- 953. Oh. Sorry. I know you hate that.
- 954. Bye, Patrick. Bye, Mr. Big-time CEO.
- 955. Bye-bye.
- 956. Was that Evelyn?
- 957. Are you still seeing her?
- 958. I'm sorry. I have no right to ask that.
- 959. Do you want me to go?
- 960. Yeah.
- 961. I don't think I can control myself.
- 962. I know. I should go.
- 963. I know I have a tendency to
get involved with unavailable men.
- 964. I mean,
- 965. do you want me to go?
- 966. I think if you stay,
- 967. something bad will happen.
- 968. I think I might hurt you.
- 969. You don'twant to get hurt, do you?
- 970. No. No, I guess not.
- 971. I don'twant to get bruised.
- 972. You're right. I should go.
- 973. Oh. Don't forgetyou have
a lunch date tomorrow
- 974. with Donald Kimball
at Smith and Wollensky.
- 975. Thanks.
- 976. It slipped my mind completely.
- 977. So,
- 978. the night he disappeared,
- 979. any new thoughts aboutwhatyou did?
- 980. Not sure. I had a shower
- 981. and some sorbet.
- 982. I think you're getting your dates mixed up.
- 983. Well, where do you place Paul that night?
- 984. According to his date book,
and this was verified by his secretary,
- 985. he had dinnerwith Marcus Halberstram.
- 986. - And?
- I questioned him.
- 987. Marcus.
- 988. Yes, and he denies it.
Though, at first, he couldn't be sure.
- 989. - But he denied it?
- 990. Well, does Marcus have an alibi?
- 991. Yes.
- 992. - He does? You're sure?
- I've checked it out. It's clean.
- 993. Now, where were you?
- 994. Where was Marcus?
- 995. He wasn'twith Paul Allen.
- 996. Who was he with?
- 997. He was atAtlantis
- 998. with Craig McDermott, Frederick Dibble,
- 999. Harry Newman, George Butner,
- 1000. and you.
- 1001. Oh, right, yeah. Of course.
- 1002. He had wanted Paul Allen to come,
- 1003. but he had made plans,
- 1004. and I guess I had dinner
with Victoria the following night.
- 1005. Personally, I think the guy
went a little nutso,
- 1006. split town for a while.
- 1007. Maybe he did go to London,
sightseeing, drinking, whatever.
- 1008. Anyway, I'm pretty sure
he'll turn up sooner or later.
- 1009. I mean, to think that one
of his friends killed him
- 1010. for no reason whatsoever
would be too ridiculous.
- 1011. Isn't that right, Patrick?
- 1012. Christie. Christie!
- 1013. I'm not so sure about this.
I had to go to Emergency after last time.
- 1014. This won't be anything like last time.
- 1015. I don't think so.
- 1016. Just come in the limo
and talk to me for a minute.
- 1017. The driver's here. You're safe.
- 1018. Nothing like last time. I promise.
- 1019. All right.
- 1020. So, you're looking great. How've you been?
- 1021. Well, I actually might need
a little surgery after last time.
- 1022. - Really?
- My friend told me I should get a lawyer.
- 1023. Lawyers are so complicated.
- 1024. Don't do that.
- 1025. Here's a check.
- 1026. Uh-uh.
- 1027. Half now, half later.
- 1028. Okay. Your name's Christie.
- 1029. We're meeting a friend of mine, Elizabeth.
- 1030. She'll bejoining us
in my new apartment shortly.
- 1031. You'll like her. She's a very nice girl.
- 1032. You look really familiar.
Did you go to Dalton?
- 1033. I think I metyou at the Surf Bar, didn't I?
- 1034. Maybe notwith Spicey, but definitely
at Surf Bar. You know, Surf Bar?
- 1035. Anyway, Surf Bar sucks now. It's terrible.
- 1036. Went to a birthday party there
for Malcolm Forbes. Oh, my God, please.
- 1037. This is nicerthan your other apartment.
- 1038. Well, it's not that nice.
- 1039. Where did you two meet?
- 1040. Oh, God. We met at...
- 1041. Oh, God, at the Kentucky Derby
in '85 or '86.
- 1042. You were hanging out
with that bimbo Allison Poole.
- 1043. Hot number.
- 1044. What do you mean? She was a hot number.
- 1045. If you had a platinum card,
she'd give you a blow job.
- 1046. This girl worked at a tanning salon.
Need I say more?
- 1047. What do you do?
- 1048. She's my
- 1049. cousin.
- 1050. She's from
- 1051. France.
- 1052. Where's your phone? I've gotta call Harley.
- 1053. Where do you summer? Southampton?
- 1054. No.
- 1055. - Oh, God. It's his machine.
- Elizabeth, it's 3.00 in the morning.
- 1056. He's a goddamn drug dealer.
These are his peak hours.
- 1057. - Don't tell him you're here.
- Whywould I?
- 1058. This tastes weird.
- 1059. Harley, it's me. I need your services.
- 1060. Translate that howeveryou want.
- 1061. I'm at...
- 1062. - You're at Paul Allen's.
- 1063. - Paul Allen.
- I want the number, idiot.
- 1064. Anyway, I'm at Paul Normand's,
and I'll try you again later.
- 1065. If I don't see you at Canal Bartomorrow
night, I'm gonna sic my hairdresser on you.
- 1066. Did you know that guywho disappeared?
Didn't he work at Pierce & Pierce?
- 1067. - Was he a friend ofyours?
- 1068. Do you have any coke? Or Halcion?
- 1069. Oh, I would take a Halcion.
- 1070. Listen.
- 1071. I would just like to see
- 1072. the two of you get it on.
- 1073. What's wrong with that?
- 1074. It's totally disease-free.
- 1075. - Patrick, you're a lunatic.
- Come on.
- 1076. Don't you find Christie attractive?
- 1077. Let's not get lewd.
I'm in no mood for a lewd conversation.
- 1078. Come on.
- 1079. I think it'd be a turn-on.
- 1080. Does he do this all the time?
- 1081. Christie, you're not drinking yourwine.
- 1082. You're telling me
you've never gotten it on with a girl?
- 1083. No. I'm not a lesbian.
- 1084. Whywould you think I would be into that?
- 1085. Well, you went to Sarah Lawrence,
for one thing.
- 1086. Those are Sarah Lawrence guys, Patrick.
- 1087. You're making me feel weird.
- 1088. Did you know
- 1089. that Whitney Houston's debut LP,
- 1090. called simply Whitney Houston,
- 1091. had four number-one singles on it?
- 1092. Did you know that, Christie?
- 1093. You actually listen to Whitney Houston?
- 1094. You own a Whitney Houston CD?
- 1095. More than one?
- 1096. It's hard to choose a favorite
among so many great tracks,
- 1097. butThe Greatest Love of All
- 1098. is one of the best,
most powerful songs everwritten
- 1099. about self-preservation, dignity.
- 1100. Its universal message
crosses all boundaries
- 1101. and instills one with the hope
- 1102. that it's not too late to better ourselves.
- 1103. Since, Elizabeth,
- 1104. it's impossible in this world we live in
- 1105. to empathize with others,
- 1106. we can always empathize with ourselves.
- 1107. It's an important message.
- 1108. Crucial, really.
- 1109. And it's beautifully stated on the album.
- 1110. Not the face, you bitch!
- 1111. Not the fucking face,
you piece of bitch trash!
- 1112. I want a firm commitment.
- 1113. I think, Evelyn,
- 1114. thatwe've lost touch.
- 1115. Why? What's wrong?
- 1116. My need to engage in homicidal behavior
- 1117. on a massive scale cannot be corrected,
- 1118. but I have no otherway to fulfill my needs.
- 1119. - We need to talk.
- Talk aboutwhat, Patrick?
- 1120. It's over, Evelyn.
- 1121. It's all over.
- 1122. Touchy, touchy.
I'm sorry I brought up the wedding.
- 1123. Let's just avoid the issue, all right?
Now, are we having coffee?
- 1124. I'm fucking serious. It's fucking over. Us.
- 1125. This is nojoke.
- 1126. I don't think we should
see each other anymore.
- 1127. Butyourfriends are my friends,
and my friends are yourfriends.
- 1128. I really don't think itwould work.
You have a little something...
- 1129. I know thatyourfriends are my friends,
- 1130. and I've thought about that.
- 1131. You can have them.
- 1132. - You're really serious, aren't you?
- Yes, I am.
- 1133. What about the past? Our past?
- 1134. We never really shared one.
- 1135. - You're inhuman.
- 1136. I'm in touch with humanity.
- 1137. Evelyn, I'm sorry.
- 1138. I just...
- 1139. You're not terribly important to me.
- 1140. Oh, no!
- 1141. No! No!
- 1142. I know my behavior
can be erratic sometimes.
- 1143. What do you want me to do?
What is it thatyou want?
- 1144. If you reallywant to do something for me,
then stop making this scene right now.
- 1145. - Oh, God, I can't believe this.
- I'm leaving.
- 1146. I've assessed the situation, and I'm going.
- 1147. - Where are you going?
- Just leaving.
- 1148. Butwhere?
- 1149. I have to return some videotapes.
- 1150. Here, kitty, kitty.
- 1151. Oh, my God. What are you doing?
- 1152. Stop that.
- 1153. Drop the weapon! Drop it now!
- 1154. Get on the ground! Put...
- 1155. Burning the midnight oil, Mr. Smith?
- 1156. Hey, now don't forget to sign in.
- 1157. Hi.
- 1158. Harold, it's Bateman. Patrick Bateman.
- 1159. You're my lawyer, so I think
you should know, I've killed a lot of people.
- 1160. Some escort girls in an apartment uptown,
- 1161. some homeless people, maybe five orten,
- 1162. an NYU girl I met in Central Park,
- 1163. I left her in a parking lot
behind some doughnut shop.
- 1164. I killed Bethany,
my old girlfriend, with a nail gun,
- 1165. and some man...
Some old faggotwith a dog.
- 1166. Lastweek, I... I killed another girl
- 1167. with a chain saw.
- 1168. I had to. She almost got away.
- 1169. Someone else there. I can't remember.
- 1170. Maybe a model. But she's dead, too.
- 1171. And Paul Allen.
- 1172. I killed Paul Allen with an ax in the face.
- 1173. His body is dissolving
in a bathtub in Hell's Kitchen.
- 1174. I don'twant to leave anything out here.
- 1175. I guess I've killed maybe 20 people,
- 1176. maybe 40.
- 1177. I have tapes of a lot of it.
- 1178. Some of the girls have seen the tapes.
- 1179. I even...
- 1180. I ate some of their brains.
- 1181. And I tried to cook a little.
- 1182. Tonight, I...
- 1183. I just had to kill a lot of people,
- 1184. and
- 1185. I'm not sure
I'm gonna get awaywith it this time.
- 1186. So I mean...
- 1187. I guess
- 1188. I'm a pretty...
- 1189. I mean, I guess I'm a pretty sick guy.
- 1190. So,
- 1191. if you get back tomorrow,
- 1192. I may show up at Harry's Bar.
- 1193. So, you know.
- 1194. Keep your eyes open.
- 1195. Are you my 2:00?
- 1196. No.
- 1197. Can I help you?
- 1198. I'm looking for Paul Allen's place.
- 1199. Doesn't he live here?
- 1200. No, he doesn't.
- 1201. You sure?
- 1202. You saw the ad in the Times?
- 1203. No. Yeah. I mean, yeah.
- 1204. - In the Times.
- There was no ad in the Times.
- 1205. I think you should go now.
- 1206. But I think...
- 1207. I want to know what happened here.
- 1208. Don't make any trouble, please.
- 1209. I suggestyou go.
- 1210. Don't come back.
- 1211. I won't.
- 1212. Don'tworry.
- 1213. Patrick Bateman's office.
- 1214. - Jean? I need help.
- Patrick, is thatyou?
- 1215. Jean, I'm not...
- 1216. Craig McDermott called.
He wants to meetyou,
- 1217. David Van Patten, and Tim Bryce
at Harry's for drinks.
- 1218. Oh, God.
- 1219. What did you say, you dumb bitch?
- 1220. - Patrick, I can't hear you.
- What am I doing?
- 1221. Where are you, Patrick? What's wrong?
- 1222. I don't think I'm gonna make it, Jean,
- 1223. to the office this afternoon.
- 1224. Why?
- 1225. Just say no!
- 1226. What is it, Patrick? Are you all right?
- 1227. Stop sounding so fucking sad!
- 1228. Jesus!
- 1229. Table forthree.
- 1230. Bateman, you look a little wild-eyed.
Rough day at the office?
- 1231. Look, Bryce is back,
and he's drinking mineral water.
- 1232. He's a changed man, except he still
can't get a reservation to save his life.
- 1233. Why don't you just try 150 Wooster?
- 1234. I'm not going anywhere
unless we have a reservation.
- 1235. Le Cirque, Flamingo East, Oyster Bar.
- 1236. Come on, faggots, let's get a res.
- 1237. Keep your shirt on.
Maybe lose the suspenders.
- 1238. Need a reservation for 8:30.
- 1239. Excuse me, gentlemen. Right back.
- 1240. 00 would not be any good, no.
- 1241. Just fucking call them.
- 1242. - Give me the phone. I'll do it.
- I'll call you back.
- 1243. Face it. The Japanese will own most
of this country by the end of the '90s.
- 1244. Shut up, Carnes. Theywill not.
- 1245. So, Harold, did you get my message?
- 1246. Jesus, yes! Thatwas hilarious.
- 1247. - Thatwas you, wasn't it?
- Yeah, naturally.
- 1248. Bateman killing Allen and the escort girls.
- 1249. - That's rich.
- What exactly do you mean?
- 1250. The message you left.
By the way, Davis, how's Cynthia?
- 1251. - You're still seeing her, right?
- Wait, Harold. What do you mean?
- 1252. Excuse me. Nothing. It's good to see you.
- 1253. Is that Edward Towers?
- 1254. Wait.
- 1255. Davis.
- 1256. I'm not one to bad-mouth anyone.
- 1257. Yourjoke was amusing, but come on, man.
- 1258. You had one fatal flaw.
- 1259. Bateman is such a dork.
- 1260. Such a boring, spineless lightweight.
- 1261. Now if you said Bryce or McDermott...
Otherwise, itwas amusing.
- 1262. Now ifyou'll excuse me,
I really must be going.
- 1263. Wait.
- 1264. Stop.
- 1265. I did it, Carnes.
- 1266. I killed him.
- 1267. I'm Patrick Bateman.
- 1268. I chopped Allen's fucking head off.
- 1269. The whole message
I left on your machine was true.
- 1270. Excuse me. I really must be going now.
- 1271. No, listen.
- 1272. Don't you knowwho I am?
- 1273. I'm not Davis. I'm Patrick Bateman.
- 1274. We talk on the phone all the time.
- 1275. Don't you recognize me?
- 1276. You're my lawyer.
- 1277. Now, Carnes,
- 1278. listen.
- 1279. Listen very, very carefully.
- 1280. I killed Paul Allen,
- 1281. and I liked it.
- 1282. I can't make myself any clearer.
- 1283. But that's simply not possible.
- 1284. And I don't find this funny anymore.
- 1285. It neverwas supposed to be.
- 1286. - Why isn't it possible?
- It's just not.
- 1287. Why not, you stupid bastard?
- 1288. Because I had dinnerwith Paul Allen
twice in London, just 10 days ago.
- 1289. No, you
- 1290. didn't.
- 1291. Now, ifyou'll excuse me.
- 1292. We've seen the results of that mistrust
- 1293. in the form of lies, divisions, and mistakes.
- 1294. We need to find a way to cooperate
- 1295. while realizing foreign policy
- 1296. can't be run by committee.
- 1297. And I believe there's now
the growing sense
- 1298. that we can accomplish more
- 1299. And, in the end, this may be
the eventual blessing in disguise
- 1300. to come out of the Iran-Contra mess.
- 1301. How can he lie like that?
- 1302. - How can he pull that shit?
- What shit?
- 1303. Nowwhere do we have reservations at?
- 1304. I'm not really hungry, but I'd like
to have reservations someplace.
- 1305. How can you be so fucking...
- 1306. I don't know... Cool about it?
- 1307. Some guys are just born cool, I guess.
- 1308. Bateman?
- 1309. What are you so fucking zany about?
- 1310. I'm just a happy camper.
- 1311. Rockin' and a-rollin'!
- 1312. Oh, brother! Look.
- 1313. He presents himself
as this harmless old codger,
- 1314. but inside...
- 1315. But inside...
- 1316. But inside doesn't matter.
- 1317. Inside? Yes? Inside? Believe it or not,
Bryce, we're actually listening to you.
- 1318. Come on, Bateman, what do you think?
- 1319. Whatever.
- 1320. Whose moronic idea was it
to order dry beers?
- 1321. I need a scotch.
- 1322. When I named him to
the U.S. Court of Appeals,
- 1323. the American Bar Association...
- 1324. There are no more barriers to cross.
- 1325. All I have in common
with the uncontrollable
- 1326. and the insane, the vicious and the evil,
- 1327. all the mayhem I have caused
and my utter indifference toward it,
- 1328. I have now surpassed.
- 1329. My pain is constant and sharp,
- 1330. and I do not hope
for a betterworld for anyone.
- 1331. In fact, I want my pain
to be inflicted on others.
- 1332. I want no one to escape.
- 1333. But even after admitting this,
- 1334. there is no catharsis.
- 1335. My punishment continues to elude me,
- 1336. and I gain no deeper knowledge of myself.
- 1337. No new knowledge can be
extracted from my telling.
- 1338. This confession has meant nothing.
