Cyber Parlor Customer: I wanna kill my boss. Rufus Riley: Uh-huh, okay. You got some images I can work with? (spots John approaching with Agatha and hastily tries to cover up his unethical transaction) Rufus Riley: ... Uh, yeah, being concertmaster for the Philadelphia Symphony is one of our most popular choices... Cyber Parlor Customer: No, I wanna kill my boss. Rufus Riley: You sick bastard! You're what makes this a terrible world to live in!
Agatha: Is it now?
Agatha: Think about all the lives that little girl has saved. Lamar Burgess: Think about all the lives that little girl has saved, think about all the lives she will save, that little girl could have saved Sean. John Anderton: (yells) Don't you *ever* say his name! Male Precog: You used the memory of my dead son to set me up. John Anderton: (yells) You used the memory of my dead son to set me up! That was the one thing you knew would drive me to murder. Male Precog: What are you going to do now, Lamar? John Anderton: (yells) What're you going to do now, Lamar? Male Precog: How are you... John Anderton: ...going to shut me up? Male Precog: I'm sorry, John.
Dr. Iris Henimen: The Precogs are never wrong. But, occasionally... they do disagree.
Wally the Caretaker: You're not allowed in here - who are you? Do I know you? John Anderton: (in disguise, grabs Wally by the collar) Listen, Wally - I like you. So, I don't wanna have to kick you or hit you with anything hard, but only if you promise to help me. Wally the Caretaker: ...Oh, hi, John.
Officer Fletcher: John, don't run.
John Anderton: You don't have to chase me.
Gideon: Careful, Chief. Dig up the past, all you get is dirty.
Danny Witwer: (Using Anderton's projector and puts a clear recorded device into it) This is a murder of a woman named Anne Livley.
Lamar Burgess: You got this from containment?
Danny Witwer: Yes. This is from the twins, Arthur and Dashiell. Agatha's datastream is missing.
(Takes out the clear device and gets out another clear device from his suit pocket)
Danny Witwer: This is from the Cyber Parlor.
(Puts that clear device into Anderton's projector)
Danny Witwer: Anderton dowloaded this directly from Agatha, and Rufus Riley recorded it.
Lamar Burgess: It's the same prevision.
Danny Witwer: Not quite.
(Gets up and goes to the video on the wall)
Danny Witwer: Watch the wave action across the water. Watch the ripples. Moving
(Moves his pinky)
Danny Witwer: *away* from shore.
(Goes over to the projector and changes recorded devices)
Danny Witwer: This is from containment what Art and Dash saw.
(Goes back to the wall)
Danny Witwer: The wind has changed. The ripples are moving the other way.
(Moves his pinky to the direction of the ripples)
Danny Witwer: This murder is taking place at 2 different times. The sentry has said that Anderton was actually watching this in containment right before he was tagged.
Lamar Burgess: Yes, yes. He came to me and told me about the missing prevision. He was afraid that you might find it.
Danny Witwer: He was right. I *did* find it. But one question remains: Why would somebody want this erased from the data file?
Lamar Burgess: Danny. Tell me. What are you thinking?
Danny Witwer: I'm thinking somebody got away with murder.
Lamar Burgess: I don't understand.
Danny Witwer: Well, Jad told me that sometimes the Pre-Cogs see the same murder more than once.
Lamar Burgess: It's called an "echo".
Danny Witwer: Jad calls it "Pre-Cog Deja Vu".
Lamar Burgess: Yes. The Pre-Cog technician finds these echoes and disregard them.
Danny Witwer: (laughs slightly) Yes, but um... what if the technician only *thought* that he was looking at an echo? What if he was really looking at was a completely different murder altogether?
Lamar Burgess: Uh, I don't understand.
Danny Witwer: All you have to do is hire someone to kill Anne Livley for you, someone like a drifter, a neuroin addict, somebody with nothing to lose. Pre-Crime stops the murder from taking place, Halos the killer, takes him away but then, right then someone else that has viewed the pre-vision. Dresses in the same clothes, commits the murder in *exactly* the same way. Technician takes a look, *thinks* he's looking at an echo, erases it.
Danny Witwer: Of course, this would have to be somebody with access to the previsions in the first place. Someone *fairly* high-up...
Lamar Burgess: (Shushes Witwer) You know what I hear Danny? Nothing. No footsteps up the stairs, no jet out of the window, no clickeyty-click of the little spiders. Do you know why I can't hear those things Danny? Because right now, the Pre-Cogs can't see a thing.
(Shoots Danny in the chest as he slowley crumples to the floor, Burgess than comes over to Danny and shoots him in the head)
Wally the Caretaker: I like you chief, you've always been nice to me. I'll give you two minutes before I hit the alarm.
Danny Witwer: He came to see you the other day right before he was tagged. What did you talk about?
Lamar Burgess: The Mets. John doesn't think they have a deep enough pitching roster this year, and I'm inclined to...
Danny Witwer: Why are you protecting him?
John Anderton: They set me up.
Dr. Solomon: (to bandaged John Anderton) Never scratch.
Rufus Riley: (to Agatha) Those thoughts about my cousin Elena, those were *just* - *thoughts*!
(Officer Fletcher, on a jet pack, lands in front of Anderton)
John Anderton: Rough landing... have to work on that.
Officer Fletcher: Yeah, it's this shit knee of mine.
Danny Witwer: (getting into the elevator) You're in a lot of trouble, John.
John Anderton: You set me up.
Danny Witwer: I'll write the paranoia off to the whiff you've been doping on...
(John slams him against the elevator wall and draws his gun, then presses it to Witwer's throat)
John Anderton: Well, I...
Danny Witwer: Easy. Easy. It seems I found a flaw.
(He pulls from his pocket and holds up the inhalant device)
John Anderton: What are you gonna do?
Danny Witwer: Possession alone will cost you six months, not to mention your badge. I guess we won't be working together after all. Now, put the gun down, John. I don't hear a red ball.
Danny Witwer: (in a deadly tone) Now, put the gun down, John. I don't hear a red ball.
(Then, the red ball alarm sounds, and Anderton backs out of the elevator and turns to run)
