- 1. His name is Jan.
- 2. I do not know him.
- 3. He's from the rig.
- 4. You know we do not favour
matrimony with outsiders.
- 5. Can you even tell us what matrimony is?
- 6. It's when two people are joined in God.
- 7. Do you really believe you're capable...
- 8. of bearing the responsibility
- 9. not only for your own marriage in God,
- 10. but also another's?
- 11. I know I am.
- 12. Can you think of anything of real value...
- 13. that the outsiders have
brought with them?
- 14. Their music.
- 15. Out you go, Bess McNeill, and be seated.
- 16. Forgot my six-string razor,
- 17. hit the sky
- 18. Halfway to Memphis...
- 19. before I realized
- 20. Well, I rang the information...
- 21. my axe was cold
- 22. They said she rides a train to Oriole
- 23. Now it's a mighty long way...
- 24. Bess.
- 25. Bess, come on.
Don't be silly.
- 26. He's late.
- 27. All right, but at least he's coming.
- 28. Get this on, then.
- 29. You're going to ruin your dress.
- 30. He's late.
- 31. You're being silly.
- 32. Come on.
- 33. Bess, get your clothes on.
- 34. Come on.
Don't ruin it.
- 35. It's a good day.
- 36. Bess, you're not supposed to see him.
You know that.
- 37. You're going to ruin your...
- 38. You're late!
- 39. Hey!
- 40. Break out the bottles!
- 41. Come on.
It's my wedding.
- 42. Will you please,
be upstanding for the bride?
- 43. The Lord's my Shepherd,
- 44. I'll not want;
- 45. He makes me come to God...
- 46. in pastures green;
- 47. He leadeth me...
- 48. as quiet waters lie...
- 49. As we stand in thy presence
today, in thy house,
- 50. We worship thee as the author...
- 51. of every good and perfect gift.
- 52. Christ loved the church
and gave himself for her.
- 53. We should love Christ
and give ourselves to him.
- 54. If it is not too inappropriate...
- 55. may I say that you, Bess,
- 56. have shown that love and that
commitment in your own life.
- 57. It is not once or twice...
- 58. that you have been in this building,
- 59. giving your time
and effort to cleaning it.
- 60. I know that you have done that...
- 61. not so as to be
well-thought-of here on earth
- 62. but out of your love for God in heaven.
- 63. Great sermon, father.
- 64. Ring the bells, then.
- 65. Our church has no bells.
- 66. That's not too fun, is it?
- 67. This is Dodo.
- 68. The sister-in-law.
- 69. We haven't really met, have we?
- 70. No.
Well, everything happened so quickly.
- 71. What makes you say that?
- 72. I just mean...
Well, it did, didn't it?
- 73. Are you not happy for me?
- 74. Of course I am.
- 75. Of course I am.
- 76. Come on, Terry.
- 77. Hey!
- 78. Get along, little doggies!
- 79. Bess.
- 80. "Dear Bess,
- 81. "I've known you for 6 years,
- 82. and I can definitely say...
- 83. you have the biggest heart...
- 84. of anyone I've ever met."
- 85. "It wasn't easy for me here
when I married Sam,
- 86. but you welcomed me instantly,
- 87. and I won't ever forget that."
- 88. "Your generosity knows no bounds,
- 89. like the time when you
lent jack a bike...
- 90. because his was broken,
only it was mine,
- 91. and I had to walk to work."
- 92. "I was furious with you then,
- 93. but I regret that now,
- 94. because it's your spirit."
- 95. "You'd give anything to anyone."
- 96. "When Sam died, I lost
a husband, and you a brother."
- 97. "We saw each other through that...
- 98. and promised to look after one another."
- 99. "You are the reason..." sorry.
- 100. "I have stayed...
- 101. when I almost gave up
in this cold place,
- 102. and now your warmth
has embraced another outsider."
- 103. "His name is Jan,
- 104. and I don't know
much about him,
- 105. but I'll accept
his right to be here...
- 106. because of you, Bess."
- 107. "If he doesn't take care of you...
- 108. and give you
everything you need,
- 109. I'll kill him."
- 110. "Thank you for all you've given me, Bess.
- 111. I love you very much."
- 112. Have me now?
- 113. Here?
- 114. Maybe you wanted something more romantic.
- 115. This is lovely.
- 116. You sure?
- 117. No.
- 118. What do I do?
- 119. Ok?
- 120. You got blood on your dress.
- 121. Shall I go down and wait for you?
- 122. You ok?
- 123. Hi.
- 124. Take care of yourself.
- 125. Go get her now, Jan!
- 126. Go get her, Jan!
- 127. Every day I spend my time
- 128. Drinking wine, feeling fine
- 129. Waiting here to find the sign
- 130. That I can understand
- 131. yes, I am
- 132. In the days between the hours
- 133. Ivory towers,
- 134. bloody flowers
- 135. Push their heads into the air
- 136. I don't care if I ever know
- 137. there I go
- 138. Don't push your love too far
- 139. Can't get this fucker open.
- 140. Shit.
- 141. What's so funny?
- 142. How could you take it?
- 143. How could you keep away from the boys?
- 144. I waited for you.
- 145. No.
- 146. Yeah.
- 147. But you must have been lonely.
- 148. Who did you talk to?
- 149. I thank you for the greatest gift of all:
- 150. the gift of love.
- 151. I thank you for Jan.
- 152. I'm so lucky to have been
given these gifts.
- 153. But remember to be a good girl, Bess,
- 154. for you know I giveth
and I taketh away.
- 155. What?
I didn't mean it like that.
- 156. Yes. I'll be good.
I'll be really, really good.
- 157. Thank you.
- 158. What did you say?
- 159. Thank you.
- 160. Fly.
- 161. Away!
- 162. Hello, Jan.
- 163. Hello.
- 164. Bess.
- 165. Hello.
- 166. Why don't you have any church bells?
- 167. We do not need bells in
our church to worship God.
- 168. I like church bells.
- 169. Let's put them back again.
- 170. Have fun.
- 171. But now, friends,
- 172. things have become very different.
- 173. It hurts me to have to say it,
- 174. but there appears to be
those in the church...
- 175. who are prepared to
cling to the world...
- 176. instead of fleeing from it.
- 177. But those to whom I refer...
- 178. will know what I am speaking about.
- 179. It grieves my heart,
- 180. and I know there are others...
- 181. who feel just the same.
- 182. Amen.
- 183. Mr. Donald John Beaton,
will you rise and address the question?
- 184. Thank you, Lord, for this day
you have blessed us with.
- 185. It's stupid that only men
can talk in the service.
- 186. Hold your tongue, woman.
- 187. Lassie!
- 188. It is Lassie, I know it!
- 189. Lassie!
- 190. Lassie. Oh, Lassie.
- 191. They're burying Anthony now.
- 192. Go and listen to the minister.
- 193. What?
- 194. Yeah.
You can do that if you want.
- 195. Men are allowed at funerals.
- 196. Go on.
- 197. Anthony Dodd Mantle, who has been one...
- 198. Anthony Dodd Mantle, you are a sinner...
- 199. and you deserve your place in hell.
- 200. The minister said he would go to hell.
- 201. Did he say that?
- 202. Bloody cheerful.
- 203. Will Anthony go to hell.
- 204. Everyone knows that.
- 205. You do realize...
- 206. that I will have to go back soon,
- 207. You knew it all the time.
- 208. "Lord, we are unworthy of
the least of all thy mercies.
- 209. We thank thee for this food.
- 210. Pardon our sins for Jesus' sake.
- 211. Amen.
- 212. When are you going back?
- 213. Didn't you know?
- 214. Jan's going to stay at home with me...
- 215. quit the rig because we're so happy.
- 216. Bess, come on.
- 217. I wish I could.
- 218. I will not have that kind of
behaviour in my house!
- 219. I'm sorry, mother.
- 220. If you cannot control your moods,
- 221. It's the hospital again
for you, my girl.
- 222. I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
- 223. Why should you be any different?
- 224. Every woman around here
has to learn to be alone...
- 225. when their man's away
at sea or on the oil rigs.
- 226. Even you can learn how to endure.
- 227. I don't even know who you are.
- 228. I don't know anything about you,
- 229. and quite frankly...
- 230. I'm sorry.
I'm sorry to say this,
- 231. but I don't trust you.
- 232. She's...
She's very susceptible.
- 233. And you could get her...
- 234. You could get her to do
anything you wanted.
- 235. No.
I don't think so.
- 236. How am I supposed to look out for her now?
- 237. What do you want to do?
- 238. Keep her here, locked up
for the rest of her life?
- 239. She hasn't got the strength.
- 240. She's stronger than you and me.
- 241. You don't understand, do you?
- 242. She's not right in the head.
- 243. Come on.
She just wants it all.
- 244. What's this?
- 245. What?
- 246. What?
- 247. What's that?
- 248. What's that?
- 249. It's a present.
- 250. Can I open it?
- 251. Yeah, sure.
- 252. Nice colours, aren't they?
- 253. Very cheerful.
- 254. It's open.
- 255. We've been waiting for you, bud.
- 256. Hey.
- 257. Yeah. That's fine.
You want a little snort?
- 258. Look at you.
- 259. Bess!
- 260. No!
- 261. No!
- 262. Come, come, come.
- 263. All right?
- 264. It's ok.
- 265. It's ok.
- 266. Watch your head!
- 267. Watch your head.
- 268. Ok?
- 269. It's just for a little.
- 270. I'll call you.
- 271. Jan!
- 272. No!
- 273. Bess!
- 274. No!
- 275. Bess!
- 276. You're going to be all right, dear.
- 277. Ok?
- 278. It's all right, darling.
- 279. It's all right.
- 280. It's all right.
- 281. It's ok.
- 282. It's all right, dear.
- 283. Let's give you one of these.
- 284. One of these down you.
- 285. Here we go.
Take one of these.
- 286. That's it.
Pop it in your mouth.
- 287. Swallow.
- 288. Who would be a poor man,
a beggar man, a thief?
- 289. If he had a rich man
in his hand?
- 290. And who would steal the candy
from a laughing baby's mouth?
- 291. If he could take it
from the money man?
- 292. Cross eyed Mary
a-goes jumping in again
- 293. She signs no contract
- 294. but she always
plays the game
- 295. She dines in Hampstead village...
- 296. You are guilty of selfishness, Bess.
- 297. You didn't even consider for one second...
- 298. how painful it must have been for him.
- 299. You put your own feelings
before everyone else's.
- 300. I can't see that you love him
when you behave like that.
- 301. Now you must promise
to be a good girl, Bess.
- 302. I promise to be a good girl.
- 303. I'm sorry for the way I behaved, mother.
- 304. It's all right, Bessie.
- 305. Mother, would it be ok...
- 306. if I came home for a bit
while Jan's away?
- 307. Of course it would, Bessie.
- 308. Ok.
- 309. You got it.
- 310. A little bit of this shit.
- 311. Oh, shit.
- 312. Nice.
- 313. You know, the waves are
getting pretty heavy.
- 314. Jesus Christ.
What the fuck's wrong with you?
- 315. Just pissed.
Just give me one.
- 316. Just wait.
- 317. Now, but you know, there's some nice...
- 318. Shit.
- 319. Just throw the god-damn radio away.
- 320. You can't get anything in here anyhow.
- 321. You and your fucking radio.
- 322. Oh, God! Fuck.
- 323. Come on.
- 324. Fire!
- 325. Wet towel!
- 326. Just... shit!
- 327. Hey!
- 328. Bueno!
- 329. Didn't he say he'd call?
- 330. Do you want me to wait with you?
- 331. Yes, please.
- 332. Where the fuck is the second shift?
- 333. I got a phone call to make.
- 334. I got to go to the hospital.
- 335. Are you cold?
- 336. No.
- 337. No?
- 338. You're all right?
- 339. Don't wait too long, will you?
- 340. Oh, shit.
- 341. Pim, got to make a phone call.
- 342. Get out of here.
- 343. Hello?
- 344. Is Bess there?
- 345. One moment.
- 346. Bess.
- 347. Is that you, Bess?
- 348. Hi.
- 349. I'm sorry I couldn't get
to the phone earlier.
- 350. That's ok.
- 351. Don't you love me any more?
- 352. Of course I do.
- 353. Say so, then.
- 354. I'd made up my mind not to.
- 355. Everyone says that I love you too much...
- 356. and if you found out...
- 357. how much I loved you,
- 358. you might get upset...
- 359. because we're not together right now.
- 360. Bess, never stop saying you love me.
- 361. You hear?
- 362. Yes.
- 363. No matter what anybody says.
- 364. Yes.
- 365. Say it, then.
- 366. I love you so much.
- 367. I love you, too.
- 368. I can hear you breathing.
- 369. Can you hear me?
- 370. What are you thinking?
- 371. That you're here.
- 372. And what are you doing?
- 373. I'm touching your arms...
- 374. and your chest...
- 375. and your tummy
- 376. and...
- 377. your prick.
- 378. You're so huge.
- 379. Jan will be home in ten days for a week.
- 380. Pardon?
- 381. Jan will be home in ten days for a week.
- 382. Pits.
- 383. Hi.
- 384. What are you doing here?
- 385. Where's Jan?
- 386. I'm the only one back.
Hurt my wrist.
- 387. They sent me home.
- 388. He sends his love.
- 389. How long have you got off now?
- 390. Only three days.
- 391. Yeah.
You know me.
- 392. I'm back.
- 393. Sorry.
- 394. How long has she been asleep?
- 395. What's the matter with you?
- 396. Cat got your tongue?
- 397. Have you taken my calendar?
- 398. Have you taken my calendar?
- 399. No, I have not.
- 400. What would I want with your calendar?
- 401. Don't be ridiculous.
- 402. You've taken it.
- 403. I have not taken it.
- 404. Yes, you have.
- 405. I don't know what you're talking about.
- 406. What calendar?
- 407. Where is it?
- 408. Bess, you've got to
stop all this, you know.
- 409. You've got to go on living
when he isn't here.
- 410. I mean, he's not dead.
You're not dead.
- 411. You know what I mean?
- 412. You've got to stop it.
- 413. It's all right.
- 414. What's going on?
- 415. Go back to sleep.
It's all right.
- 416. Was that Bess?
- 417. No. It's ok.
It's all right.
- 418. Bit of hysterics.
- 419. No, no. It's all right.
I'll sort it out.
- 420. We're not to have this
carry on in the house.
- 421. I know. Just stay where you are.
Go back to sleep.
- 422. It's terrible.
- 423. Bess McNeill, for many years,
you've prayed for love.
- 424. Shall I take it away from you again?
- 425. Is that what you want?
- 426. Oh, no.
- 427. I'm still grateful for love.
- 428. What do you want, then?
- 429. I pray for Jan to come home.
- 430. He will be coming home in ten days.
- 431. You must learn to endure.
You know that.
- 432. I can't wait.
- 433. This is unlike you, Bess.
- 434. Out there, there are people
who need Jan and his work.
- 435. What about them?
- 436. They don't matter.
Nothing else matters.
- 437. I just want Jan home again.
- 438. I pray to you.
- 439. Please, won't you send him home?
- 440. Are you sure that's what you want?
- 441. Yes.
- 442. Ok.
Get her up.
- 443. Blow out!
- 444. Get away!
- 445. Terry!
- 446. Terry!
- 447. Terry!
- 448. Terry!
- 449. Talk to me, will you?
- 450. Watch out!
- 451. Jan!
- 452. Go get... get a medic!
- 453. I don't know what kind of
condition he's in.
- 454. I think it's very serious, though.
- 455. I don't quite know.
- 456. It's Jan.
There's been an accident on the rig.
- 457. Jan, can you hear me?
- 458. What are you doing?
- 459. I'm holding your hand.
- 460. Don't touch me.
- 461. Don't touch me!
- 462. Jan, relax.
- 463. Sit down here.
- 464. All right.
- 465. Deep breath.
- 466. Hello.
Talk to me, darling.
- 467. Talk to me.
- 468. Talk to me.
- 469. Come on.
It's all right.
- 470. It's all right.
It's going to be all right.
- 471. They're going to operate straight away.
- 472. It will be a few hours,
- 473. so I think we better wait...
- 474. Bess.
- 475. Bess, you can't go in there.
- 476. It's not allowed.
I want to be with him.
- 477. I know you do.
- 478. But come on. Come with me.
- 479. No.
I want to see him all the time.
- 480. Bess, it's not a good idea.
- 481. Bess.
Bess, please, you can't stay here.
- 482. It's just not possible.
- 483. Bess!
- 484. Can I have a word with you?
- 485. Stay there, all right?
- 486. I want you to pray with me.
- 487. But...
- 488. Please.
- 489. Dear god, we pray that you...
- 490. will hold your hand
- 491. and not let him die.
- 492. Amen.
- 493. Mrs. Nyman, will you please come with me?
- 494. Will he live?
- 495. We have stabilized your husband's
condition for the time being.
- 496. Will he live?
- 497. Yes.
Yes, Bess, he will live.
- 498. Your husband suffered
very serious injuries.
- 499. Life shouldn't always
be preserved at any cost.
- 500. What do you mean?
- 501. Well, the doctor means, Bess...
- 502. that, sometimes...
- 503. in some cases when
life isn't worth living,
- 504. then it may
be better to die.
- 505. You don't know Jan, or you
could not say such a thing.
- 506. Your husband may never walk again.
- 507. We think he'll be completely paralysed.
- 508. But he'll live?
- 509. Yes.
He will live, it seems.
- 510. Father.
- 511. Are you there?
- 512. Are you still there?
- 513. Of course I am, Bess.
- 514. You know that.
- 515. What's happening?
- 516. You wanted Jan home.
- 517. I've changed my mind.
- 518. Why did I ask for that?
- 519. Because you're...
- 520. a stupid little girl, Bess.
- 521. I had to test you.
- 522. Your love for Jan
has been put to the test.
- 523. Thank you...
- 524. for not letting him die.
- 525. You're welcome, Bess.
- 526. He said "there is no reason
- 527. And the truth is plain to see"
- 528. But I wandered
through my playing cards
- 529. And would not let her be
- 530. One of 16 vestal virgins
- 531. Who were leaving
for the coast
- 532. And although
my eyes were open
- 533. They might just as well
have been closed
- 534. And so it was...
- 535. I would say to you...
- 536. that if there is one of
- 537. which you do not love
and do not obey,
- 538. you have no place
at the Lord's table.
- 539. When did you get back?
- 540. I came back with Jan.
- 541. It's good to see you.
- 542. Surf's up!
- 543. Hi.
- 544. Hi, guys.
- 545. How you doing, buddy?
- 546. Well, fine.
How are you?
- 547. Ok.
- 548. Did you find anything?
- 549. Gas.
- 550. Nothing really.
- 551. Guess what, now.
- 552. We're heading up north.
- 553. Well, north, that's good.
- 554. That's where you always said the oil was.
- 555. What are you doing here, anyway?
- 556. We're meant to be out drilling.
- 557. I just felt like...
- 558. Putting my feet up for a while.
- 559. I didn't trust you
two guys out there alone.
- 560. Oh, my...
- 561. My arms aren't ok, so...
- 562. I'm not thirsty, anyway.
- 563. Bullshit!
- 564. Hey, come on.
- 565. Come on.
- 566. Oh, man, sorry.
- 567. Oh, man, sorry.
- 568. Ok.
- 569. Thank you.
- 570. I'm not really supposed to
have any visitors, so...
- 571. We really don't have the time, either.
- 572. Ok.
- 573. You take care of yourself?
- 574. Take care.
Get well soon.
- 575. See you, guys.
- 576. Will you do something for me?
- 577. Yes.
- 578. The next time you come,
- 579. could you wear something more...
- 580. More loose...
- 581. So I...
- 582. So I won't have to see your body.
- 583. Bess, you'll have to go now...
- 584. because Jan needs to rest.
- 585. All right.
- 586. You shouldn't get him
too overemotional, you know.
- 587. It's not good for him.
- 588. I'm sorry.
- 589. You got to cheer him up.
- 590. Is he asleep now?
- 591. Well, he should be...
- 592. the amount I've given him.
- 593. Would it be all right...
- 594. If I went and had a look at him?
- 595. I love you, Jan.
- 596. I love you, too, Bess.
- 597. You are the love of my life.
- 598. Bess.
- 599. Where have you been?
- 600. I've been to the church.
- 601. What, at 2:00 in the morning?
- 602. I don't want you getting ill again...
- 603. like you did when Sam died.
- 604. I said I've been to the church.
- 605. It has nothing to do with the church.
- 606. Did you hear what I said?
- 607. I don't want you to get ill again.
- 608. Like you did when Sam died.
- 609. I've had a word with Dr. Richardson,
- 610. And he says he could see you tomorrow.
- 611. Can he?
- 612. Bess, would you like to come in?
- 613. Dodo said I had to come.
- 614. She has this idea about me treating you.
- 615. My predecessor admitted you
a few years ago.
- 616. Well, why did he do that?
- 617. I don't know.
- 618. No, nor do I.
- 619. You were upset because
your brother had died...
- 620. and now you're upset
because your husband's ill.
- 621. Nothing unusual about that.
- 622. Am I not going to have some pills?
- 623. I'm probably not like your old doctor.
- 624. I don't think that people
should be given pills...
- 625. just because they do
what's only natural.
- 626. Maybe showing what you feel
isn't the done thing...
- 627. from where you come from,
- 628. but it's certainly no disease.
- 629. What... happened on the rig...
- 630. was my fault.
- 631. How come?
- 632. I prayed to God to send him home.
- 633. Well...
- 634. Well...
- 635. What powers you possess.
- 636. Do you really...
- 637. Do you really believe
that you possess such powers?
- 638. I know you people believe
a lot about yourselves.
- 639. Bess...
- 640. Perhaps you should do a bit of grieving...
- 641. for yourself instead of him.
- 642. I think you should come and see me...
- 643. now and again if you feel like it.
- 644. I'm sorry.
- 645. Come on.
- 646. Well, things will pick up
once he gets home again.
- 647. Well, she's my woman of gold
- 648. Yes, she's not very old,
- 649. Well, she's my woman of gold
- 650. Yes, she's not very old,
- 651. I don't mean to be bold, uh
- 652. But, uh, may I hold your hand?
- 653. Well, she ain't no witch
- 654. and I love the way she twitch
- 655. Well, she ain't no witch
- 656. and I love the way she twitch
- 657. Happy birthday to you
- 658. Squashed tomatoes and stew
- 659. You look like a monkey
- 660. and I thought it was you
- 661. Look at that.
- 662. Special.
- 663. Shall I open your present?
- 664. Yes.
- 665. Your presents.
- 666. Can you see all right?
- 667. What is it?
- 668. Wait and see.
- 669. I don't believe it.
- 670. Where did you get that?
- 671. I got it in a shop.
- 672. That is the stupidest thing I've ever seen.
- 673. Look, it's not doing anything now.
- 674. Ahem. All right, go on.
Well, go on.
- 675. That is just terrible.
- 676. That is daft, that is completely daft.
- 677. Happy birthday, Jan.
- 678. Thank you.
- 679. I'll see you later.
- 680. Do you like it?
- 681. Yes, it's...
- 682. It's... it's nice.
- 683. I'll give you your pill.
- 684. Ok?
- 685. One more drink.
- 686. Ok?
- 687. Yeah.
- 688. Happy birthday.
- 689. I'm finished, Bess.
- 690. No.
- 691. You could take a lover...
- 692. without anybody noticing...
- 693. but you can't divorce me.
- 694. They'd never let you.
- 695. Bess.
- 696. No.
- 697. Is that what you think I want?
- 698. You cripple!
- 699. You must make up with him.
- 700. A husband and wife...
- 701. have to be able to talk to each other.
- 702. He's the one who is helpless,
- 703. and you're the one...
- 704. who must show you're strong.
- 705. Go to him and tell him...
- 706. you are sorry you were angry.
- 707. You have God.
- 708. You have the strength...
- 709. your life in God has bestowed upon you,
- 710. and that is a strength
he does not possess.
- 711. Oh, no.
- 712. Come on.
- 713. Come on.
You're all right.
- 714. Come on.
- 715. That's it.
It's all right.
- 716. It's all right.
All right, all right.
- 717. What's she thinking of...
- 718. Going off leaving you like this?
- 719. You must admit that she was...
- 720. She was happy when we got married.
- 721. She blossomed...
- 722. Didn't she?
- 723. I can't just lie here.
- 724. I can't even make love to her.
- 725. She's got to get out of here.
- 726. She's got to get on with life.
- 727. Help me set her free.
- 728. She'd do anything for you, Jan.
- 729. You know that.
- 730. She don't care... anything about herself...
- 731. but she'd do anything for you...
- 732. just to see a smile on your face.
- 733. Do you understand me?
- 734. Yeah.
- 735. Right.
- 736. Thanks for telling me.
- 737. No trouble.
- 738. Do you want me to read to you?
- 739. Are you all right?
- 740. They took him back to the hospital.
- 741. Bess.
- 742. Bess, what is going on?
- 743. He went unconscious.
We had to bring him back here.
- 744. At home any more...
- 745. Not if you're going to go running off...
- 746. and leaving him like that.
- 747. I'm sorry.
- 748. Well, it's just not good enough!
- 749. I'm not... I'm not even allowed
to kiss him any more.
- 750. Why don't you try listening to
what he says, Bess?
- 751. It's up to you.
- 752. He ain't got anyone else.
- 753. You could give him the will to live.
- 754. That's more than any doctor can do.
- 755. Bess?
- 756. I'm sorry.
- 757. No, it was my fault.
- 758. Come here.
- 759. Hi.
- 760. Hi.
- 761. Love is a mighty power...
- 762. Isn't it?
- 763. If I die...
- 764. It will be because love
cannot keep me alive.
- 765. But I can hardly remember...
- 766. what it's like to make love.
- 767. And if I forget that...
- 768. then I'll die.
- 769. Remember when I phoned you from the rig?
- 770. We made love without being together.
- 771. Do you want me to talk
to you like that again?
- 772. I'd love to.
- 773. Bess.
- 774. I want you to find
a man to make love to...
- 775. and then come back here
and tell me about it.
- 776. It will feel like you and me
being together again.
- 777. Now, that... that will keep me alive.
- 778. I can't.
- 779. This morning when I...
When I told you to get a lover,
- 780. It wasn't for your sake.
- 781. It was for my sake...
- 782. because I don't want to die.
- 783. I'm afraid.
- 784. Do you understand?
- 785. Yes.
- 786. It will be you and me, Bess.
- 787. Do it for me.
- 788. I can't.
- 789. Please.
- 790. Bess?
- 791. Are you all right?
- 792. Sure?
- 793. Here you go.
- 794. Easy.
- 795. Suzanne takes you down...
- 796. to her place near the river
- 797. You can hear the boats go by,
- 798. you can spend the night, beside her.
- 799. And you know
that she's half crazy,
- 800. But that's why
you want to be there
- 801. and she feeds you
tea and oranges...
- 802. that come all the way from China
- 803. And just when you mean
to tell her,
- 804. that you have no love
to give her
- 805. Then she gets you
on her wavelength
- 806. And she lets the river answer
- 807. That you've always been her lover
- 808. You certainly needed some shut-eye.
- 809. I put your rose in a vase.
- 810. Perked up a bit.
- 811. You should think of yourself a bit, too.
- 812. Go out.
- 813. Go dancing.
- 814. I've seen you dance.
- 815. You like to dance.
- 816. Where's Jan?
- 817. There's nothing you can do in here.
- 818. Don't let him die.
- 819. And why shouldn't I let him die?
- 820. I love him.
- 821. So you keep saying, but I don't see it.
- 822. There's nothing I can do.
- 823. There's nothing at all.
- 824. Prove to me that you love him...
- 825. and then I'll let him live.
- 826. I've come to dance.
- 827. It's great. You're great.
- 828. But, maybe you could talk to me.
- 829. And love lies bleeding in my hand
- 830. Oh, it kills me to think
of you with another man
- 831. I was playing...
- 832. Bess, stop dancing.
Talk to me.
- 833. But my guitar couldn't hold you
- 834. So I split the band
- 835. Bess...
- 836. Talk to me.
- 837. Give me five minutes.
- 838. You can touch me now.
- 839. You can have me now.
- 840. Bess, listen to me.
- 841. We're not going to make love.
- 842. Now put your clothes back on.
- 843. Don't you want me?
- 844. Don't you like me?
You said that you liked me.
- 845. Yes, Bess, I like you.
- 846. Now put your clothes on.
- 847. But you don't understand.
- 848. I'll be good to you, and...
- 849. I want us to make love.
- 850. Listen.
- 851. If you want to talk to me...
- 852. we can meet at the hospital.
- 853. Now just put your clothes on, Bess.
- 854. No...
- 855. Please.
I don't know what to do with you.
- 856. All right, now just put
your clothes on, Bess,
- 857. and go home.
- 858. No.
- 859. I'm lying on my back, all naked.
- 860. And...
- 861. he comes in, and he sees me.
- 862. And he kisses my breasts.
- 863. And he enters me...
- 864. And...
- 865. And he's making love to me...
- 866. Gently...
- 867. And...
- 868. He's coming.
- 869. It was Dr. Richardson.
- 870. Hi.
- 871. Hi, Bess.
- 872. Where are you going, then?
- 873. Jan, we're going to
take you off the respirator...
- 874. for five minutes to exercise
your lungs a little bit...
- 875. and see how you are,
- 876. so just relax and take it easy.
- 877. Ok, start to breathe by yourself, now, Jan.
- 878. Just take very deep breaths.
- 879. Slowly.
- 880. That's it.
- 881. And again.
- 882. Very good.
- 883. Deep breaths.
- 884. Now, that's it.
- 885. Bess.
- 886. Yes?
- 887. What are you doing on this bus?
- 888. Which bus, Jan?
- 889. Come to me.
- 890. I'm here.
I'm here in the back.
- 891. Yes.
- 892. In the back of the bus.
- 893. Yeah.
- 894. Come.
- 895. Dodo.
- 896. Jan.
- 897. Go and get Dr. Richardson.
- 898. I'm going to put you back
on the respirator now, Jan.
- 899. Jan, can you hear me?
- 900. Are you awake?
- 901. Talk to me.
- 902. Hi, Bess.
- 903. I'd like to have a chat with you.
- 904. Bess.
- 905. This is my bus... My bus.
- 906. Forgive me, father.
I have sinned.
- 907. Mary Magdalene sinned,
- 908. and she is among my dearly beloved.
- 909. I go to the back of the bus...
- 910. and you're there.
- 911. And you're so huge...
- 912. that you're almost
bursting out of your pants.
- 913. And I undo your fly...
- 914. and I touch you.
- 915. I'm touching your prick.
- 916. Have you been in to see Jan?
- 917. How is he?
- 918. Better.
- 919. He's better?
- 920. Just a bit.
- 921. Hey, Bess, it looks like...
- 922. your prayers have been answered.
- 923. We've been able to take
him off the respirator.
- 924. Good news, isn't it?
- 925. Do you think...
- 926. that we turn to different people
- 927. when we get close to the edge?
- 928. And that we...
- 929. we turn bad when we're going to die?
- 930. You're not going to die.
- 931. I know you're not.
- 932. I promise you.
- 933. When are you
gonna come down?
- 934. When are you going to land?
- 935. I should have stayed
on the farm
- 936. I should have listened
to my old man?
- 937. You know you can't hold me forever
- 938. I didn't sign up with you
- 939. I'm not a present
for your friends to open
- 940. This boy's too young to be singing...
- 941. the blues...
- 942. Look!
- 943. Here you go.
- 944. Hey, hey, girlies!
We found some shroomies!
- 945. Don't get your hopes up too high, will you?
- 946. Dr. Richardson says that
Jan could get worse again.
- 947. I'm the one who saved his life.
- 948. I can save it again.
- 949. Bess, what are you talking about?
- 950. I told Jan stories...
Stories about love.
- 951. That was almost like
being together, him and me.
- 952. You see, love can save Jan.
- 953. He must not forget about love.
- 954. He told me that.
- 955. He tells me what to do.
- 956. Bess, I'm glad that you listened to Jan,
- 957. but don't let him gain
too much power over you.
- 958. Sickness is a mighty power.
- 959. I've saved Jan.
- 960. Don't talk like that.
- 961. You always said that I wasn't stupid.
- 962. Well, you're stupid if you
say things like that.
- 963. Why are you saying I'm stupid now?
- 964. Because I can see
that you're disappearing...
- 965. into a world
- 966. and it worries me.
- 967. I used to go mad...
- 968. when people called you stupid,
- 969. But... you are stupid!
- 970. We're going to put
a drain in this afternoon.
- 971. It'll be much easier
to get through to him.
- 972. Don't worry.
It's a very minor operation.
- 973. Are you trying to make me feel guilty?
- 974. What makes you say that?
- 975. I think she's trying
to make me feel guilty.
- 976. Come here.
- 977. You look fucking awful.
- 978. Why do you dress like that?
- 979. You dress like a widow.
- 980. I'm not even dead yet.
- 981. Maybe you wish I was.
- 982. No.
- 983. You haven't done what I asked you to do.
- 984. I have!
- 985. I asked you to be with a man.
- 986. I have done that.
- 987. You call that being with a man?
- 988. I call it a joke.
- 989. I love you.
I don't love some other man.
- 990. Prove it.
- 991. Bess, what is going on?
- 992. Are you sleeping with other men
to feed his sick fantasies?
- 993. He did get better.
- 994. No, he did not get better!
- 995. That's just the way it goes, Bess.
- 996. Sometimes he's better;
Sometimes he's worse.
- 997. It has nothing to do with what you're doing.
That's all in your mind.
- 998. He is my husband, and god has
said that I must honour him.
- 999. Well, if that's what
honouring is all about...
- 1000. then I must have something wrong.
- 1001. Well, you don't come from
around here, do you?
- 1002. No, and I'm glad I don't.
- 1003. With locals talking.
It makes me sick.
- 1004. But you live here,
and you go to the church.
- 1005. Yes, but it don't mean I don't
look at things me own way.
- 1006. Why don't you move, then?
Your husband's dead.
- 1007. You know very well why I don't move.
- 1008. I don't move because of you.
- 1009. A woman has to choose for herself, Bess.
- 1010. She has to have a mind of her own.
- 1011. Now, what you're doing is making
things worse. It's nonsense.
- 1012. His head's full of scars.
- 1013. He's up to his eyeballs in drugs.
- 1014. He doesn't know what he's saying.
- 1015. And he doesn't know.
- 1016. I'm sorry.
- 1017. I'm sorry.
- 1018. Am I going to go to hell?
- 1019. Whom do you want to save...
yourself or Jan?
- 1020. Bess.
- 1021. It's been a long time... most unlike you.
- 1022. I must warn you that
the Lord looks with anger...
- 1023. upon those who fail him.
- 1024. You've got to lend me something to wear.
- 1025. A good shot.
- 1026. All right.
- 1027. Hello.
- 1028. Good shot.
- 1029. How much, darling?
- 1030. 1, 2, 3, up.
- 1031. Ok.
- 1032. Thank you.
- 1033. I can't hear the blood pressure.
- 1034. The blood pressure.
- 1035. We have a fibrillation.
- 1036. Clear.
- 1037. Still no change.
- 1038. Ok.
- 1039. Clear again, please.
- 1040. Go on.
- 1041. Clear, please.
- 1042. Yes!
- 1043. Oh, yes!
- 1044. All right.
- 1045. Good work.
- 1046. It's ok?
- 1047. Hi, Bess.
- 1048. Bess...
- 1049. Bess, I think it's time
we had a little chat.
- 1050. I love you no matter what is in your head.
- 1051. So you didn't have to give Jan...
- 1052. electric shock treatment
when his heart stopped...
- 1053. in the operation yesterday?
- 1054. No, we didn't.
- 1055. It was a perfectly simple operation.
- 1056. As you know.
- 1057. I shouldn't have to say that.
- 1058. You know that very well.
- 1059. I want a word with Bess on her own.
- 1060. Thank you, Dorothy.
- 1061. I'm not going to ask you
what you've been getting up to...
- 1062. because I don't want
to hear you lie to me,
- 1063. but as long as you are
living under my roof,
- 1064. you are to behave
like a decent human being.
- 1065. I have never lied to you.
- 1066. Do you understand me?
- 1067. Yes, mother.
- 1068. This is very painful for me.
- 1069. Your grandfather can no longer
- 1070. hold his hand over you with the elders.
- 1071. I don't think you realize what that means.
- 1072. Have you any idea
what it's like to be cast out?
- 1073. You will have nothing, Bess.
- 1074. I've known strong men and women...
- 1075. wither away after being cast out.
- 1076. Now, you are not strong.
You're a feeble girl.
- 1077. It would kill you, Bess.
- 1078. I've said enough.
- 1079. Bess.
- 1080. Can you come down a minute, love?
- 1081. Dr. Richardson is here.
- 1082. Hi, Bess.
- 1083. Hello.
- 1084. How are you?
Can we sit down?
- 1085. Bess...
- 1086. I think... I think you've got yourself...
- 1087. involved in something...
- 1088. which is out of your control.
- 1089. Have I?
- 1090. Come on, Bess.
- 1091. You're not a kid any more.
- 1092. Look, for Christ's sake,
- 1093. he's forcing you to get screwed...
- 1094. by every Tom, Dick, and Harry.
- 1095. It's just not you.
- 1096. I don't make love with them.
- 1097. I make love with Jan...
- 1098. and I save him from dying.
- 1099. Well, I'm sorry, but you know,
- 1100. To me, he seems more
like a dirty old man...
- 1101. who wants to play the peeping Tom.
- 1102. Sometimes...
- 1103. I don't even have to tell him about it.
- 1104. Jan and me...
- 1105. We have a spiritual contact.
- 1106. God gives everyone something to be good at.
- 1107. I've always been stupid...
- 1108. But I'm good at this.
- 1109. God gives everyone a talent.
- 1110. And what's Jan's talent?
- 1111. He is...
- 1112. He's a great lover.
- 1113. Well, what's... what's mine, then?
- 1114. I don't know.
- 1115. Haven't you found it yet?
- 1116. I see.
- 1117. And what's your talent, then, Bess?
- 1118. Surely it can't be being screwed...
- 1119. by men you've never seen before.
- 1120. I can believe.
- 1121. Are you angry now?
- 1122. Yes, I am!
- 1123. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm angry...
- 1124. because you can't see that
he's messing you about.
- 1125. He's the one who's sick.
- 1126. Look, what he's doing to you is sick,
- 1127. and it's getting sicker and sicker.
- 1128. He's becoming more
and more of a danger to you
- 1129. the more the fluid rises in his...
- 1130. listen to me, for god's sake!
- 1131. Do you always get so involved...
- 1132. in your patients' problems,
- 1133. Listen to me, Bess.
- 1134. I care for you.
- 1135. I love you, Bess.
- 1136. You're very special.
- 1137. Will you move your hands, please?
- 1138. Certainly.
- 1139. Dodo.
- 1140. Will you show Dr. Richardson out, please?
- 1141. What's going to happen now, Bess?
- 1142. Has he told you any more...
- 1143. of the thoughts he's had?
- 1144. Any more services for you to perform?
- 1145. Don't come here again.
- 1146. He has, has he?
And what's it going to be this time?
- 1147. What are you going to give him
to slobber over this time?
- 1148. Dear father, what's going on?
- 1149. Father, where are you?
- 1150. That boy scared me.
- 1151. Hello.
- 1152. Can you take me out to the ships?
- 1153. Can't take you out there.
- 1154. The other girls wouldn't like it.
- 1155. But they can't do all the ships.
- 1156. They don't have time.
- 1157. Maybe not.
- 1158. What about the big one?
- 1159. I don't go out to that one any more.
- 1160. Girls won't go aboard.
- 1161. Well, then you can take me.
No harm done.
- 1162. How are you feeling, Jan?
- 1163. Well, I've felt better.
- 1164. Yeah.
- 1165. Unfortunately, the periods...
- 1166. in which we can get through to you...
- 1167. have lately become very rare.
- 1168. I'll have to send you back to Glasgow...
- 1169. for a while, I'm afraid.
- 1170. I don't want any more...
- 1171. operations.
- 1172. Of course, it's entirely up to you,
- 1173. but...
- 1174. I have to say that your
condition's unlikely to improve...
- 1175. without surgery.
- 1176. Well, if you've made
your mind up on that point,
- 1177. Maybe it's time to consider other matters.
- 1178. I mean, we should start thinking
about other people than just you.
- 1179. Bess.
- 1180. I'm glad you understand
what I'm driving at.
- 1181. Your... your condition's been-
it's been very hard on her.
- 1182. And I can't judge why,
but she's suffering...
- 1183. from delusions regarding your condition.
- 1184. I have to be blunt.
- 1185. I don't think that
seeing you is good for her.
- 1186. I guess not.
- 1187. I am convinced that the best thing
- 1188. we can do for her right now...
- 1189. is to admit her again.
- 1190. Get her away?
- 1191. Yes.
- 1192. As far away as possible.
- 1193. Think that's necessary?
- 1194. Listen, if you don't want surgery,
- 1195. the indications are that we
will enter a prolonged period...
- 1196. in which you will be more and
more affected by your condition.
- 1197. The poorlier you are, the more
detrimental your influence on Bess.
- 1198. I've drawn up some papers giving
me the authority to detain her...
- 1199. under the provisions
of the mental health act.
- 1200. I'll need your consent.
- 1201. You're going to section Bess?
- 1202. It's the only way I can get her treated.
- 1203. Tell me, Dr. Richardson, does...
- 1204. does this mean I will
never see her again?
- 1205. To be realistic, yes.
- 1206. It's just there at the bottom.
- 1207. You said you wanted to help her.
- 1208. Come on, Jan.
- 1209. If you've been bad
- 1210. Lord, I bet you have
- 1211. And you've not been hit
- 1212. You've not been hit
by flying lead
- 1213. You'd better
close your eyes
- 1214. You'd better
bow your head
- 1215. Wait for the ricochet...
- 1216. How do I get back?
- 1217. I'll keep an eye out for you.
- 1218. Hello.
- 1219. What do you want?
- 1220. I want that you do it
with the sailor and I watch.
- 1221. Ok.
- 1222. It's all right.
- 1223. It's ok.
- 1224. All right.
Come here, you.
- 1225. No!
- 1226. There we go, eh?
- 1227. Yeah.
- 1228. Come on down.
- 1229. Yeah.
- 1230. You like it like this, eh?
- 1231. Oh, please.
Can I go home now?
- 1232. No. No.
Can I go home now?
- 1233. Please, I don't want...
- 1234. No.
- 1235. No. No. Please.
- 1236. Stay still, I said.
- 1237. Stay still, I said.
- 1238. Stay still, I said.
- 1239. No.
- 1240. Bitch!
- 1241. I'm going to shoot you.
- 1242. You will?
- 1243. I'm going to shoot you.
- 1244. You think so?
- 1245. You don't even know how to use that thing.
- 1246. Nobody will believe a hooker!
- 1247. Because there is only one thing for us,
- 1248. sinners that we are,
- 1249. to achieve perfection
in the eyes of God...
- 1250. through unconditional love...
- 1251. for the word that is written,
- 1252. through unconditional love for the law.
- 1253. I don't understand what you're saying.
- 1254. How can you love a word?
- 1255. Love words.
- 1256. You cannot be in love with a word.
- 1257. You can love another human being.
- 1258. That's perfection.
- 1259. No woman speaks here.
- 1260. Bess McNeill, the kirk session...
- 1261. has decided this day that henceforth,
- 1262. you shall no longer
have access to this kirk.
- 1263. They who know you shall not know you.
- 1264. Please, let me stay!
- 1265. Be gone, Bess McNeill,
from the house of God.
- 1266. Hello, Bess.
- 1267. You're... you're coming with us.
- 1268. We're going to Glasgow.
- 1269. Bess, they're going to take you...
- 1270. back into hospital
just for a little bit.
- 1271. It's for your own good.
- 1272. I want to see Jan.
I want to see my husband.
- 1273. I know, but not now, Bess.
- 1274. It's for your own good, Bess.
- 1275. Mother can't have me admitted.
- 1276. Not now that I'm married.
- 1277. Bess, it wasn't mother
that signed the paper.
- 1278. It was Jan.
- 1279. You liar!
- 1280. Come along, Bess.
- 1281. Jan!
- 1282. Jan!
- 1283. Dodo, how can you do this?
- 1284. You had a husband, too, once.
- 1285. Your love could have saved him,
if only you'd tried!
- 1286. Jan!
- 1287. Jan!
- 1288. Ok, Bess.
- 1289. Oh, fuck!
- 1290. Ryan, she's not here!
- 1291. Hello.
- 1292. Who's a tart?
- 1293. What are you doing?
- 1294. Who's a tart?
- 1295. Who's a tart?
- 1296. Tart!
- 1297. I can't open the door.
- 1298. Mother?
- 1299. Please.
Please, mother, open the door!
- 1300. Please, open the door!
- 1301. Mother!
- 1302. I'll be good.
I'll be really, really good.
- 1303. I'll be really good.
Oh, please, open.
- 1304. Please go away.
- 1305. Stop it!
- 1306. You just go away and leave me!
- 1307. Who's a tart?
- 1308. Away with you.
- 1309. Stop all this racket
outside the house of God.
- 1310. Come on!
On you go.
- 1311. What's happened?
- 1312. Bess.
- 1313. Bess!
- 1314. Bess, are you all right, love?
- 1315. Bess, it's Dodo.
- 1316. Oh, Bessie.
- 1317. Jan is dying.
- 1318. I wasn't to tell you.
- 1319. I wasn't to tell you.
- 1320. No.
It's good you told me.
- 1321. I know you love me.
- 1322. I have to go.
- 1323. Is there anything I can do for you?
- 1324. Anything at all?
- 1325. Yes.
- 1326. I'd like you to go to Jan...
- 1327. and pray for him to be cured...
- 1328. and to rise from his bed and walk.
- 1329. Will you take me to the big ship?
- 1330. Again?
- 1331. Are you sure?
- 1332. Father, why aren't you with me?
- 1333. I am with you, Bess.
What do you want from me?
- 1334. Where were you?
- 1335. Don't you think I have other people...
- 1336. who want to talk to me?
- 1337. Well, of course.
I hadn't thought of that.
- 1338. There's this silly
little thing called Bess...
- 1339. who keeps on wanting me
to talk to her,
- 1340. so my work's been piling up a bit.
- 1341. But you're with me now?
- 1342. Of course I am, Bess.
You know that.
- 1343. Thank you.
- 1344. I'm sorry.
Do you need me?
- 1345. No. That's all right.
- 1346. Bess asked me to pray.
- 1347. For what?
- 1348. For Jan's life.
- 1349. For a miracle.
- 1350. Yeah.
That would be a miracle.
- 1351. Dear God,
- 1352. I pray that Jan gets better,
- 1353. That he rises from his bed and walks.
- 1354. Sister McNeill here.
- 1355. We'll make you better.
- 1356. Where's Jan?
I'd like to see him.
- 1357. No.
Not now, love.
- 1358. You're going to have an operation now.
- 1359. I want to see him.
- 1360. Not now, love.
You need an operation.
- 1361. No.
I've got to see Jan.
- 1362. Please, Dodo.
- 1363. All right.
- 1364. All right. Stop.
She wants to see Jan.
- 1365. I'm going to take her to see Jan.
- 1366. Come on.
Out of the way, for God's sake.
- 1367. Help me.
- 1368. Move, for Christ's sake!
- 1369. All right.
- 1370. There you go.
There you are.
- 1371. You can see him now, can't you?
- 1372. How is he...
- 1373. How's he doing?
- 1374. Is he not any better?
- 1375. No.
No, he's not.
- 1376. I thought he might be better now.
- 1377. Maybe I was wrong after all.
- 1378. Ok, let's get inside.
- 1379. Here.
- 1380. Tape.
- 1381. Ok, take care. Let's go.
1, 2, 3.
- 1382. There we go.
- 1383. It's all right, love.
- 1384. Now, Bess, do you know me?
- 1385. Yeah.
- 1386. Pulse 90.
- 1387. What happened?
Do you know?
- 1388. No.
- 1389. Pressure on 100.
- 1390. Get the blood pressure.
- 1391. 100.
- 1392. It will be all right, love.
- 1393. It will be all right.
- 1394. Can I have a look at her back?
- 1395. There we go.
- 1396. Ok.
Hand me the scissors.
- 1397. Yes.
- 1398. All right.
- 1399. Mother.
- 1400. Oh, mother.
- 1401. Here she is.
- 1402. Bessie.
- 1403. Bess.
- 1404. I'm sorry that I could not be good, mother.
- 1405. That's all right, Bessie.
- 1406. Your grandfather's
sorry he couldn't come.
- 1407. Will you tell him that I love him?
- 1408. I am glad that you came, mother.
- 1409. Blood pressure.
- 1410. It will be all right.
- 1411. It's going down.
- 1412. 2 units now.
2 units immediately.
- 1413. 2 units.
- 1414. Ok, we're just going to lower you down
- 1415. a little bit now, all right, Bess?
- 1416. There we go.
- 1417. That was easy, wasn't it?
- 1418. Going to be all right.
- 1419. Dodo, hold me.
- 1420. Here I am.
- 1421. It's all right, love.
I'm here. I'm here.
- 1422. I'm afraid.
- 1423. I know.
- 1424. Jan?
- 1425. Jan!
- 1426. Now...
- 1427. I'm frightened.
- 1428. It's...
It's all wrong.
- 1429. No pulse.
- 1430. Bess?
- 1431. Stand clear.
- 1432. Clear.
- 1433. What?
- 1434. It's going to be all right.
- 1435. That's a good girl.
- 1436. Ok.
You can stop now.
- 1437. What? What?
What do you mean?
- 1438. She's gone, Dodo.
- 1439. No.
- 1440. She's gone.
- 1441. Bess.
Bess, listen to me.
- 1442. I'm sorry.
- 1443. I'm sorry.
- 1444. Dodo.
- 1445. No!
- 1446. Come on, Dodo.
- 1447. Come on.
- 1448. I'm sorry!
- 1449. It's a god-awful small affair
- 1450. To the girl with the mousy hair
- 1451. But her mummy is yelling "No"
- 1452. And her daddy has told her to go
- 1453. But her friend is nowhere to be seen
- 1454. Now she walks through her sunken dream
- 1455. To the seat with the clearest view
- 1456. And she's hooked to the silver screen
- 1457. But the film is a saddening bore
- 1458. 'Cause she's lived it ten times or more
- 1459. She could spit in the eyes of fools
- 1460. As they ask her to focus on
- 1461. Sailors fighting in the dance hall
- 1462. Oh man!
Look at those cavemen go
- 1463. It's the freakiest show
- 1464. Take a look at the Lawman
- 1465. Beating up the wrong guy
- 1466. Oh man!
Wonder if he'll ever know
- 1467. He's in the best selling show
- 1468. Is there life on Mars?
- 1469. You describe the deceased as
"an immature, unstable person,
- 1470. a person who, due to the
trauma of her husband's illness,
- 1471. gave way in obsessive fashion...
- 1472. to an exaggerated,
perverse form of sexuality."
- 1473. Would you like to clarify
that to the inquiry?
- 1474. That's what I wrote.
- 1475. Yes.
That's what it says.
- 1476. Can I have a glass of water, please?
- 1477. Get Dr. Richardson a glass of water.
- 1478. Thank you.
- 1479. Listen, man, you had
the deceased in your care.
- 1480. The court would like
to hear the medical facts.
- 1481. If you'd... if you were to ask me again...
- 1482. to write... the conclusion, then...
- 1483. instead of writing "neurotic"...
- 1484. or, "psychotic," then I might...
- 1485. just, use a word like...
- 1486. "Good."
- 1487. Good?
- 1488. Yes.
- 1489. You wish the records of this court...
- 1490. to state that in your medical opinion,
- 1491. the deceased was suffering
from being "good"?
- 1492. Perhaps this was
the psychological defect...
- 1493. that led to her death.
- 1494. Is that what we shall write,
- 1495. No.
- 1496. Of course not.
- 1497. Very well, then.
- 1498. Perhaps we should stick to your
original statement then, doctor.
- 1499. Yes.
- 1500. I think that everything there is to say...
- 1501. about Bess McNeill
has been said already.
- 1502. We have agreed to sanction her burial,
- 1503. but there can be no funeral service.
- 1504. The fact that some of us
knew the deceased girl well...
- 1505. cannot be allowed to
influence the form of her burial.
- 1506. Bess McNeill's funeral must be the same...
- 1507. as anyone else of her kind.
- 1508. The body will be released by
the authorities sometime this week.
- 1509. I've obtained permission from
the elders to bury Bess...
- 1510. but... I cannot deviate from the principles
that apply to funerals here.
- 1511. I must say about Bess what must be said.
- 1512. Ok.
- 1513. Where's Jan?
Has he gone down there yet?
- 1514. I don't know.
- 1515. Have you seen Jan?
- 1516. Bess McNeill, you are a sinner,
- 1517. and for your sins,
you are consigned to hell.
- 1518. Not one of you has the right...
- 1519. to consign Bess to hell.
- 1520. Terry, it's time.
- 1521. Let's do it.
- 1522. Get up, for Christ's sake.
- 1523. Come on, man.
- 1524. Come on.
- 1525. Take good care of her.
- 1526. Come on, Jan.
You got to let her go.
- 1527. Bess!
- 1528. Jan.
- 1529. Jan, hey.
- 1530. What?
What's the matter?
- 1531. Come on.
- 1532. I want to show you something.
- 1533. You're not going to believe it.
- 1534. What?
- 1535. Come on.
- 1536. Please.
- 1537. Here.
- 1538. Pim!
Pim, come on!
- 1539. You're not going to believe it.
- 1540. Hey, Pim, Come on.
Check this out.
- 1541. Check this thing out, man.
- 1542. You see anything?
- 1543. There's nothing out there.
- 1544. I've tried all the fucking ranges,
- 1545. and there's nothing there.
- 1546. I just wanted to be sure.
