Eric Matthews:
Okay. Let's talk.

John:
Sit down. [Eric grabs a chair and sits in it] I want to play a game. The rules are simple. All you have to do is sit here and talk to me, listen to me. [Eric puts a walkie-talkie on the floor] If you do that long enough, then you will find your son in a safe and secure state. We haven't been properly introduced. My name's John.

Eric Matthews:
I thought you like to be called Jigsaw.

John:
No. [Laughs] It was the police and the press who coined the nickname Jigsaw. I never encouraged or claimed that. The jigsaw piece that I cut from my subjects was only ever meant to be a symbol that that subject was missing something. A vital piece of the human puzzle. The survival instinct.

Eric Matthews:
This is all really, really interesting, John. But right now I'd really like for you to talk to me.

John:
I am talking to you. You're not listening. Don't forget the rules.

Eric Matthews:
I am listening to you, but all I'm getting is the same sick f***ing bullshit that comes about two seconds into every interview I've ever done with one of you f***ing people.

John:
Well, that's an interesting approach to police work, isn't it? Aren't you supposed to be convincing me that I'm your friend, lulling me into a false sense of security so that I'll confide in you?

Eric Matthews:
It's a little hard to follow the manual when you've got my son, John.

John:
The manual? What do you really want to do to me right now, huh? What would you have done five years ago? Would you have followed the manual then? Would you have broken my jaw with a flashlight?

Eric Matthews:
You seem to know a whole lot about me.

John:
I know you were once considered a fearless police officer. Do you feel a whole lot safer now that you only sit behind a desk?

Eric Matthews:
I feel a whole lot of things right now.

John:
But you feel alive. That's what you feel, and that's the point. [Pauses] Would you... kindly get me a glass of water? [Holds up a paper cup] I would very much appreciate that.

John:
You see, Detective. Darwin's theory of evolution and survival of the fittest, based on his little trip to the Galápagos, no longer applies on this planet. We have a human race that doesn't have the edge or the will to survive.

Eric Matthews:
What the f*** do you want?!

John:
It's hard to remain calm, isn't it? When your son is walking around on those monitors.

Eric Matthews:
I can't give you what you want if you don't tell me what the f*** it is.

John:
I told you what it is. Just remember the rules.

Eric Matthews:
No, you said you wanted to talk. Then you said you wanted to play a game. You're talking, but it means NOTHING!!

John:
What do you think the cure for cancer is, Eric?

Eric Matthews:
What?

John:
The cure for cancer? What is it?

Eric Matthews:
I don't know what it is, but I know it's not killing and torturing people for your own sick f***ing pleasure.

John:
I've never murdered anyone in my life. The decisions are up to them.

Eric Matthews:
Yeah, well, putting a gun to someone's head and forcing them to pull the trigger is still murder.

John:
Since when has force been a problem for you? Why are you so desperate to get your son back?

Eric Matthews:
'Cause he's my son...

John:
What's the last thing you said to him before you left him?

[Flashback]

Eric Matthews:
Well, then go!

[Present]

John:
Seems to me that the knowledge of your son's impending death is causing you to act. Forgive all his sins, to wipe the slate clean. Why is that we're only willing to do that, when a life is at stake?

Eric Matthews:
I've always loved my son. That's never changed.

John:
No... no... It's changed now. You see, the knowledge of death... changes everything. If I were to tell you the exact date and time of your death... it would shatter your world completely. I know. Can you imagine what it feels like to have someone sit you down and tell you that you're dying? The gravity of that? That the clock's ticking for you. In a split second, your world is cracked open. You look at things differently, smell things differently. You savor everything, be it a glass of water or a walk in the park.

Eric Matthews:
The clock is ticking, John.

John:
But most people have the luxury of not knowing when that clock's going to go off. And the irony of it is that that keeps them from really living their life. It keeps them sleepwalking. It keeps them drinking that glass of water, but never really tasting it.

Eric Matthews:
You can still fix this, John.

John:
Yeah, but can we fix you?

Eric Matthews:
Me?

John:
I'm not fixable. I've got cancer.

Eric Matthews:
[in disbelief] You're using cancer as an excuse for what you do?

John:
No. The cancer isn't what started me in my work. It was the moment I decided to end my life... that started me in my work. I had literally driven myself to suicide, and I had failed. My body had not been strong enough to repel cancer cells, yet I had lived through a plunge off a cliff. But, to my amazement, I was alive. And I was determined to spend the rest of my days testing the fabric of human nature. Do you understand, Eric?

Eric Matthews:
You got a chance to do something. Do it right now, John. Just tell me where my son is. I'll help you.

John:
I don't need your help, and I can tell you still don't understand. Those who don't appreciate life do not deserve life.

Eric Matthews:
My son appreciates his life.

John:
But do you appreciate yours? Do you appreciate your son's?

Eric Matthews:
[Hits the table] Oh, this is sh*t! [Stands and walks away]

John:
Don't forget the rules. If you want to find your son.

[Eric ignores him and leaves]

[Eric awakens in the bathroom and discovers a tape. He starts it.]

Tape:
[Amanda's Voice] Hello, Eric. You probably don't even remember me, but you changed my life once. You sent me to prison. I was guilty of a lot of things, but not the drug charge you framed me for. You wouldn't know the things you lose when you're locked away. The second time somebody changed my life, I was guilty.

[Flashback]

Tape:
Hello, Amanda.

Tape:
[Narrating] But my life was saved that day.

Daniel:
You said you survived this, right?

Amanda:
Yeah.

Tape:
[Narrating] I found myself a father. A leader. A teacher.

John:
You must meet death... in order to be reborn.

Amanda:
He helped me.

[Present]

Tape:
What is the cure for cancer, Eric?

[Flashback]

John:
Those who don't appreciate life do not deserve life.

Tape:
[Narrating] The cure for death itself? The answer... is immortality.

[Present]

[Eric realizes he is chained to a pipe]

Eric Matthews:
Daniel!!

Tape:
By creating a legacy, by living a life worth remembering, you become immortal. So now you find the tables are turned.

[Flashback]

Kerry:
He asked for you!

Eric Matthews:
What the f*** do you want?!

John:
I told you.

Amanda:
He wants us to survive this.

John:
I want to play a game.

Amanda:
You have to play by the f***ing rules!

John:
The rules are simple. All you have to do is sit here and talk to me.

Eric Matthews:
What?

John:
If you can do that long enough, you will find your son in a safe and secure state.

[Kerry finds Daniel in a safe]

Eric Matthews:
What the f*** is that?

John:
It's your son, Daniel. You remember him, don't you?

Daniel Matthews:
My dad's a... he's a real hardass.

Tape:
[Previous] I call you unworthy. Of the life that you've been given.

John:
The knowledge of your son's impending death is causing to forgive all his sins. Why is that we're only willing to do that when a life is at stake?

Eric Matthews:
DANIEL! [To John] I'm done listening to you.

John:
Don't forget the rules.

Eric Matthews:
SHUT THE F*** UP!!

Kerry:
He's playing a game.

Eric Matthews:
I don't want to talk to him. [To John] You're not saying sh*t!

John:
We both know the sort of person you are. Not long to go now until your son is pissing-- [Eric hits him] I'll take you to the house.

Eric Matthews:
[In the bathroom, reaching into the bathtub] Daniel?

[A figure in a pig mask injects him with something]

John:
There's something I haven't told you, Eric.

[Amanda removes the pig mask]

Tape:
[Narrating] It is I who will carry on John's work after he dies...

[Present]

Eric Matthews:
DANIEL!

[Flashback]

John:
So go ahead. Destroy it.

[Present]

Tape:
... and you...

Eric Matthews:
[Reaching for his gun] Daniel!

Tape:
... are my first test subject. Now you are locked away. Helpless...

[Amanda appears in the doorway]

Tape:
... and alone.

Eric Matthews:
You f***ing b*tch.

Amanda:
Game over.

[Amanda locks the door of the bathroom in the first movie]

Eric Matthews:
I'LL F***ING KILL YOU! YOU F***ING B*TCH! YOU F***ING B*TCH! I'LL F***ING KILL YOU! NO! NO! NO![Screams fade away]
